Will the Raider get you playing Epic?

Recommended Posts

To date, the bigger format of the game seems to have been rather overlooked in comparison to the 100pt format.

 

Will the imminent release of the Raider make a difference ?

 

Let's have a quick straw poll of the folks who own. or are about to become owners of, at least 1 Huge ship but don't presently play Epic much.

 

Will the Raider get you playing larger format games more regularly?

 

If yes - why?

 

if no - why not?

Basically we've been waiting for both sides to have big ships because we've heard the cr-90 suffers against swarms.

Tantive seems designed to kill big ships raider is designed to clear escorts and bombers so it'll be a race he`ll need to kill my big ship before it wipes out his escorts and leaves him open to my own fighters.

My favourite format to date for x-wing has been 4 player, 2vs2 games, at around 120-50 points. This game just really plays well with teams I've found.

Epic scale teams play is pretty bloody exciting if you ask me :)

I'm planning on the following: compulsory huge ship on both sides, built by agreement between the two of you, split the rest of the points 50/50, and share tactics/responsibility as to what the raider/tantive does. It really should amp up the shared tactics thing that makes team games such a treat...

So wish I had a community here like some of you do.

I have to resort to vassal mostly to get games in

Have never tried playing epic on vassal, but it is something I don't see players play much of

Would anyone want to play epic on vassal?

Problem is it take pretty long :(

 

 

I'll happily give you an epic game on Vassal ...... just as soon as I figure out how it's supposed to work.

 

6 months ok?  :)

Yes. A group of buddies and I attempted epic before and while it was fun, the CR-90 got worked within a few rounds because of the sheer number of ships the Imperials were able to field. We're going to use a house rule that both sides must field an epic scale ship to even things out a bit; the Raider makes this possible.

Yes.

 

Honestly the Raider may be the only decent EPIC ship out there though atm.  Gozanti looks very fun when it does come out.

 

Not sure epic is balanced but will try it our.  I have one Rebel transport and a Corvette now.  Raider should come in next week.

 

Maybe do a 300 point epic build with 100 points required of epic ships for each side.
