Why would you mindlink a 2 ship list?

 

mmm, let me see.... so you can hand a token to a blocked ship, or hand a focus token to a Conner Netted ship, or hand a focus token to a stressed ship...

...I guess you've never heard of Mindlinked BroBots before. Or sarcasm either, for that matter.

I can't wait to see the inevitable "why are Firesprays sold out" complaints as people suddenly, and independent of any outside influence, decide to try a list featuring a second Firespray. PURE coincidence though.

Already seen someone after a 2nd Firespray in the UK group.

 

You're right pure coincidence I'm sure.  ?

Well I for one welcome our new Firespray overlords...

Edit: also, Mark's 4 x HWK list did well at Yavin this year as well. Not sure where it finished in the end, but definitely made day 2 and was the streamed match in round 10 IIRC.

No Attanni Mindlink either.  It's almost blasphemy.

LOL @ 2 ship mindlink.

4 Hawks is good for swiss but not good for the cut. It has too many bad pairings. You can run into a bad pairing and still do OK in swiss, but in the cut, you're finished. I'd bring 4 hawks if I wanted to get on camera and knew I couldn't win the main event (or I had to leave before the cut due to scheduling). I don't know why Mark Stretch brought it and I'm not implying anything about him.

Yeah, the blasphemy comment was more a dig at the meta-chasers who suggest that Mindlink lists are the only Scum lists worth taking rather than actual list building advice.

I don't think anyone suggests that as the Dengar/Bossk/Ketsu (delete as appropriate) are a real thing.

Building opens at 9 central time, they want to have dials by 10 but it'll probably be closer to 11 if previous events tell me anything. 

Whats the time now over there? Should be around 10am now isn't it?

Miranda could give them major problems. As could something like RAC w/ Kylo and Whisper, blind pilot twice in a row on boba is essentially game over.

I'm not so sure about Miranda. The Firesprays are tanky enough that they aren't going to worry about TLT or Bombs too much and have enough hits that even a maxed out Miranda Homing Missile with Jan Ors boosting it isn't likely to take one off the table in an alpha strike. Even if Miranda can make Fett take initiative there's a good chance that even if she SLAMs that she would stay in arc of at least one of the Firesprays.

Well don't count me in there, I've had Boba/Kath queued up for a while with pretty much that list.  I still expect it to be a day one wonder, though, like the quad HWKs at last years Yavin.

Theres a reason Firesprays are only ok, and that will be exposed.

Yea. But the fact that they're okay instead of garbage in this meta is still news to a lot of people. The general lack of double-repositioners helps them quite a bit.
