Corran/Keyan/Prototype

Recommended Posts

So I have my first store championship coming up and I've been struggling a bit with lists.

My main problem is being able to dish out enough damage to get through naturally high agility plus focus & evade tokens. But also being able to either roll enough green to stay alive myself or to dodge out of arc to avoid damage altogether.

So this is where I got to:

Corran Horn

FCS

PTL

R2D2

- 44

Keyan Farlander

Advanced Sensors

PTL

Engine Upgrade

- 39

Prototype Pilot

Refit

Autothrusters

- 17

I love how manoeuvrable Keyan is, totally able to keep up with the other two. He can get into some weird spots and drop four red dice with all sorts of reroll options. A single agility is his Achilles heel.

Corran is Corran. I like how he flies and the balance between offensive and defensive is nice. R2D2 is pretty mandatory IMHO.

The Prototype is a great all purpose blocker and flanker. Pick your time and it can be a real winner.

Have you flown something like this before? Any thoughts on where could I improve?

I like it. I just watched a match on YouTube featuring a similar list with VI Poe instead of Keyan defeating Brobots.. If you're worried about Keyan's survival, you might drop engine upgrade for B-wing/E2 and either Jan Ors or Lando to get some evade. Don't go with Kyle, though. The defensive focus won't be worth it with only one evade. Come to think of it, Jan I'd probably best because you get a guaranteed evade and if you're not getting shot but Corran is in trouble, he can evade-push focus and get another evade from Jan. Of course, EU is nice, too, so you could go either way.

That Kenyan build is amazing to play with. It is very tough for the opponent to figure out what you will be doing.

I do worry him being coupled with Corran. The idea with Corran is to joust, double tap and fly off and repair and do it again. So all of the opponents ships will be able to target Keyan and the A alone. I am not sure that is the best idea. I might swap Corran for Poe then you might be able to upgrade the A to Jack or something else.

Thanks for the feedback guys.

I like the idea of the E2/Jan combo so if the engine upgrade ain't cutting it; I'll drop it in and see how it goes.

As for Poe, he's the pilot I've been struggling to build into a decent list! I really want to take him but for whatever reason I can't make him work. Removing Corran in favour of Poe is also the runner up list from last years world's, I believe. I wanted to change it up a bit. I do get the concern over Corran's off turns though.

So far it's 2/0 vs Vader, Fel, Palpmobil and Vader, Turr, Fel. Pretty happy with that.

I'm practicing with the list this evening and my store champ is tomorrow (Saturday, UK time) so I'll report my findings back.

Would like to watch that video, can you send me link pls of that battle report :)

 

 

Also i think your list is very interesting, i wanted to make a corran, b wing list my self and with keyan. So the idea you have is nice. :) I agree with posters above that Jan is better for him, for the evade.

Also someone said, bad pairing as corran double taps and flies out. You always can use corran like any other ship, shot single time :) just double tap to finish someone off, in that case you can downgrade corran to ethan :)

Need to try similar list. As EU on keyan i think need to test it out, but like EU on e-wing to get out, but might work on Keyan too :)

I'm not sure I like AT on the A. The main idea of having a cheap A wing is to do some blocking, which is usually going to put you in somebody's firing arc. Just my .02

Good point on the thrusters. Stealth device might work better. I also like to put intimidation on a ship that can have an EPT to block with. Helps the other ships out. But is it Tournament level. Not sure.

There's lots of other good  battle reports from worlds on youtube as well!

As i likes this list, i tried this variation:

 

Keyan Farlander (29)
Push the Limit (3)
Advanced Sensors (3)
Jan Ors (2)
B-Wing/E2 (1)
 
Etahn A'baht (32)
Push the Limit (3)
Fire-Control System (2)
R2-D2 (4)
Engine Upgrade (4)
 
Green Squadron Pilot (19)
Chardaan Refit (-2)
 
Total: 100
 
 
To be honest, i did bot like Jan Ors, as if Keyan gets focus fires that 1 evade does not help much. Etahn wanted boost, br and evade mostly. Liked Keyan game play. I think i will try Keyan with recon specialist, to see opponent 1 ship move, to get him out of arc if possible or to block, probably more help :)

I prefer Keyan with sensors and engine with PTL. I barrel roll or boost then I do the other depending. Or I target lock to garuntee me hurting what I shoot at. With this build there are so many options to do. Just make sure you always can shoot. You want to releave that stress.

What about 3P0 on the B instead? Gives you a guaranteed evade per attack

C3P0 is only once per round though.

 

3p0 gives you slightly worse evasive capabilities than Jan - since his ability only works for you if you don't roll an evade. The bonus with 3p0 though is that unlike Jan, he doesn't eat up one of your actions to give you that bonus.

 

I have to say, I'm a great fan of Jan on a b-wing. Admittedly one evade token doesn't help very much if the ship gets focussed on, but it's on you to keep the b-wing safe; make it as difficult as possible to focus down on it, and make the opponent pay a heavy price for attempting it.

 

b-wing plus Jan hates tlt's and similar weapons, but against regular weapons it adds an amazing amount of longevity to your ship(s) provided you can stop the opponent from focussing down 1 ship at a time.
