Will tracker beans make squads more, equal or less lethal.

Recommended Posts

Just a crazy thought but if someone is taking 9-12 tie fighter squads would tracker beans make squads more letal. Rogues and Vill are going to have impressive ships but will tracker beans have more of a Benefit with cheap wave 1 fighters?

Here is the list idea,

SOS- 399

Major Rhymer (16pts)

Boba Fett (26 pts)

Howlrunner (16 pts)

Tie Fighters (8 pts) X9

Total 130

Victory I-Class Star Destroyer (99pts)

Phylon Q7 Tractor Beams (6pts), •Admiral Ozzel (20pts)

Victory I-Class Star Destroyer (85pts)

Phylon Q7 Tractor Beams (6pts), XI7 Turbolasers (6pts)

Victory I-Class Star Destroyer (85pts)

Phylon Q7 Tractor Beams (6pts), XI7 Turbolasers (6pts)

Total 269

Ozzel is just so 3 ships can fit in not ablity. The Home 1 is slow enough you can get it without tracker beams, and Fett just to mess with people.

maybe.

 

i think tractor beams are more for the AF line.  Take out the middle one and you have now isolated the lead ship while the third ship may ram the second or break up the convoy.  I almost want to take direct isard with tractor beams to see if my opponent has a navigate that turn.  if you are doing early damage maybe they emergency engineering and you can catch them with their pants down.

That's what I am thinking.

I am considering tractor beams on my rebel fleet. There is a lot to be gained by using them defensively, slowing down the imperial ships that are so desperate to close the distance. They would also have great utility in rebel mirror matches.

For this sort of use just one would probably be enough disruption. Spamming them is more likely to be an imperial thing.

I wonder if a Navigation Officer would be helpful to partially counter tractor beams?  Not as helpful if you eat 2-3 tractors in the same turn, but I think learning how to avoid multiple tractors is going to be a thing anyway.

I don't know. I was thinking with Disney now owning Star Wars. Tracker Beans. Jack and the Magic Beans. Mickey Mouse. Somehow, there is a movie in all that. Featuring Star Wars Tracker Beans and Mickey.

Stop. Please just stop, for the sake of all that is Star Wars.
