Boba/Fenn

MUH REY/POE!

And Guri/Fenn

Common themes:

  • force tokens: all but old boba, guri/fenn, and dash (old boba and guri are almost debateable)
  • i5/6: all
  • dial casual (pre-dial repo, dial changing, etc): all but old boba and double infil?

this archetype is not your friend, it does not fight for freedom

Also, match-up better.  Dear lord, match-ups.  Good/great match-ups are the unsung heroes of (some) tournament runs.

I propose a new, charge-based upgrade for everyone: 

Hyperspace Jump: 2 charges. Setup: you may spend one charge to have the Marshal change your pairing for this Swiss game. Charges only reset at the end of the tournament. 

7 points.

For the meantime, Init 2 Torrents are 3 points cheaper, and that matters a lot on a filler.

Likewise, 29 is a TIE Bomber for an extra hull.  Naked Scimitars?

On the other hand, Sienar Specialist with a turret is essentially a TIE/sf, and those are good.

If I owned more than one, I'd try them out more. :P

To make an Aggressor into an SF:

1) Give it barrage rockets for a kind of 3 atk 

2) Give it Dorsal Turret for a kind of 2 die rear arc

3) For 6 overall hp, give it shield upgrade

4) Squint real hard

5) Realize it’s 3 points more, has a worse hull to shield ratio, that it can’t attack R3 out the rear, and that it’s third forward red dice is turned off if it needs to use focus

6) Fly FO instead

But nah, in all seriousness you see the immediate disappearance of v19s from aethersprite lists the second they could get another piece that literally contributes nothing while not dying (Ric).  Marcel then figured out he can bring anakin to do 1 (one) thing then leave or block and not die.  Bye v19s!

 

I feel like the tale of the v19 is the best reason we should all scream and shout for limited formats.

Them side arcs, tho.

I guess what I mean is that, while TIE/sf is probably better, the best way to run an Aggressor might be to make it into a sorta into a naked SF.  31 for a Dorsal, 33 for ICT.  Take two, keep guns on the target, and bring like Vader and another ace.  Is the Aggressor the driving power behind your list?  Surely not.  Is it decent 31-33 point filler?  Maybe. 

*edit*

  • Sienar Specialist (Ion Cannon Turret) 33
  • Sienar Specialist (Ion Cannon Turret) 33
  • Darth Vader (Passive Sensors, Afterburners) 76
  • Grand Inquisitor (Sense) 57

Maybe???
