Are triple T70's viable?

Recommended Posts

I'm in on buying at least one, and maybe two Renegades packs depending on actual number of upgrades in it.  We think there is at least one FAA in there, so with that and the two I already have, I'm set for anything other than baby blues.  

Mind, if I want to go all in on 5 x T-65s with the expected 20 point build out for rookiees, I'll end up buying 2 Renegades and my third shuttle ... just don't tell the wife.

I took this to a local tourney. Went 3-0 with a little luck on my side.

 

T-70 X-Wing: •Poe Dameron (40)
        Autothrusters (2)
        •Black One (1)
        Adaptability (+1) (0)
        •R2-D2 (4)
        Advanced Optics (2)

T-70 X-Wing: •Nien Nunb (33)
        Integrated Astromech (0)
        Snap shot (2)
        •R3-A2 (2)

T-70 X-Wing: •Jess Pava (27)
        Integrated Astromech (0)
        •R2-D6 (1)
        •Selflessness (1)

Total:  100/100

 

Here's a game on stream.

Considering ...

Ello Asty (37)
T-70 X-Wing (30), Black One (1), Flight-Assist Astromech (1), Primed Thrusters (1), Expertise (4), Integrated Astromech (0)

“Red Ace” (36)
T-70 X-Wing (29), R2-D2 (4), Comm Relay (3), Integrated Astromech (0)

Jess Pava (27)
T-70 X-Wing (25), R2 Astromech (1), Hyperwave Comm Scanner (1), Integrated Astromech (0)
 

FAA might be better for Jess, but I only have one FAA card.

I've flown against an Expertise Ello, @Hawkstrike.  It's pretty nasty.  Hyperwave on Jess with Red Ace makes a lot of sense.  Deploy Jess at PS6 (which can easily make a difference in a lot of games) and Red Ace starts off with his Comm Relay stacked.  Seems sweet.

I feel like Primed Thrusters might be a bit redundant on Ello, with his white-ish T-Rolls.  He's a ship designed to not take stress, and unless your opponent gives it to you, you probably won't take any stress over the course of the game.  I don't know your local scene, perhaps enemy stress control lists are common, and thus Primed here and R2 on Jess.  They're both great hedges against opponent stress.  However, they could also be replaced.  Good 2-point Astromechs aren't too common, but Targeting Astromech (since you won't be able to put Primed Thrusters or Pattern Analyzer on Jess), R3-A2, and R2-D6 and a 1-point Elite (Selflessness? Draw Their Fire? Crack Shot?) for Jess would all fit.  R5 Astromech is also probably an underrated card for Jess.  There are a lot of ship-crits, and if one of those slips through, it'd be easy to flip it face down in the end phase, and save the Integrated Astromech for a later damage.

Ey, greetings all! another T-70 fan here! Happy to see I'm not alone trying to shine 3xT-70 lists. 

Before FAA astro & adv. optics release, I tried to fit Ello/Nien/Snap at same list, but that seemed to be ineffective as they were not fully loaded due to economic builds on them.
But now, I've recently had some great moments with:

Red Squadron Veteran — T-70 X-Wing 26
Predator 3
Flight-Assist Astromech 1
Advanced Optics 2
Autothrusters 2
Ship Total: 34
   
Red Squadron Veteran — T-70 X-Wing 26
Predator 3
Flight-Assist Astromech 1
Advanced Optics 2
Autothrusters 2
Ship Total: 34
   
"Blue Ace" — T-70 X-Wing 27
Flight-Assist Astromech 1
Advanced Optics 2
Autothrusters 2
Ship Total: 32


Red Vets with predator, adv sensor and FAA really have a powerfull action economy. There has been some times when had to pass action because there were nothing possible to do. And "Blue Ace" is totally proper, treat to exploit hard boost to perform unexpected maneuvers. Even with lack of EPT, is a very fun and effective ship. Despite of be a PS 4-5 list, it has a hard punch and is quite mobile. And with FAA you like to move first and take position to hunt something. My bid is to deploy spread over table the 3 ships, and from round 2 place the 2 RedVets close together thanks to barrel+boost, and "Blue ace" flanking whatever.


Hope to bring here some results of my vassal games (as vassal is my experimental yard, I don't own 3 T-70s ships (yet)).

Exciting times ahead for the Triple T-70 list! I know a lot of people aren't sold on X-Wing 2.0 (and please let's not turn this into another bastion of negativity), but what are we looking forward to/hoping for for our beloved and currently less-than-optimal T-70?

How about a timeline as to when the Resistance conversion will be released?  Poe has always been one of my favorite pilots (not always in T-210 format... HERESY! particularly in this thread).  I'm kinda miffed I won't be able to put him on a table for a while.

You and me both. Poe has been in nearly every list I've ever ran!

That does suck a little, I agree. Makes me wonder if we are due another sequel-trilogy release this year that is delaying things.

Yeah, most of my favourite stuff is Resistance, I don't even own a T65.

Might get triple T65s, should be workable with the changes to turrets and bombs. Will get me through until the Resistance kit comes along. 

Also revisit A-Wings! ?

Personally I think 2.0 looks brilliant so far.

Yeah, this poor thread will be kinda dead until...December?  Hopefully when it comes back, the answer will be a resounding, "Yes"!

My X-Wing identity is centered squarely around BB-8 Poe.  Like @BlodVargarna, almost everything I run starts with Poe.  I'm both excited about the required shift and also deeply saddened.

Last night on Vassal I took out:

Black Squadron (101)

•Poe Dameron (39) - T-70 X-Wing
Veteran Instincts (1), •BB-8 (2), Advanced Optics (2), •Black One (1), Autothrusters (2)

•Nein Numb (35) - T-70 X-Wing
Snap Shot (2), •R3-A2 (2), Primed Thrusters (1), Integrated Astromech (0)

•Jess Pava (27) - T-70 X-Wing
•R2-D6 (1), Integrated Astromech (0), Crack Shot (1)

Managed to pull out the W against

a Zuckus Mist Hunter

PTL Fenn Rau 

And Thweek

M.O.M.Was Nein “The Mean” Numb. 

Even though I had to ditch R3-A2 early, his Snap shots and insane maneuvering + shedding stress in the knife fight was key!

New Poe with old PTL gonna be so good ... personally I am deeply saddened by rumours that Jess Pava hasn't made it into 2e.

I'm pretty sure she'll make it. In one of the interviews the devs specifically mentioned her as an example of how Resistance theme differs from Rebellion. I hope she makes the transition to Second Edition.

I think I'm more concerned that Red Ace and Blue Ace won't make it, just because I really enjoy flying them, and have purposefully repainted two of my T-70s to represent them!

Me too.

Poe; Red Ace, Blue Ace; Snap, Jess, Ello, Nien.

I can't recall where I heard it, but I did hear that Blue ace has made it, but much like the other generically named unique pilots (Omega Leader, Crimson specialist etc) he has a name... I can't remember where I heard it though!

I hope you're right. Blue Ace was a lot of fun!

I'll still run my Red Ace/Blue Ace T-70s regardless whether they're in the game, I just think it's a shame that characterful pilots are being removed simply because they haven't got names :(
