FFG We Need to Nerf Darth Vader (Squadron)

Recommended Posts

I mean he is so OP with escort, it distorts the meta and we all know he needs a nerf

Remove Escort from Darth Vader, that will bring him back down to power level.:P

:unsure:hey, it was worth a try as that is the only way FFG will ever change a card if enough people get on the forums and subreddit to complain and call for a nerf.

I don't really see the problem. Darth is a double brace escort with 5 hull. Very similar to Wedge, Luke and Biggs and only a point or two more. He is more Killy I suppose but not too much for the points. 

Zertek Storm is better, for only 15 points you get the same defence properties as Vader. A bargain even if you never use the reroll ability.

Just ignore Marin. He's been on a seemingly endless rant about errata ever since the X-wing FAQ landed last month.

For those that don't get the joke it is a request for a secret buff. Vader is good but with the weakest (second only to single brace from decimators) defense tokens and no scatter there is no way to protect him so he just dies.

*So removing Escort would be more of a Buff, but don't tell FFG that.:ph34r:

Yeah not a very good topic, but this is what we do without any news.

For whatever it's worth, I got it :)

 

And even had a bit of a chuckle

I think Escort on Vader is backwards. The should drop Escort on Vader and he should give Escort to any friendly squadron with Swarm within range 1. 

When you see the attack run in the Death Star trench, it makes sense. Vador shouldn't have Escort for any reason, but be the last one being targetable

How are either Luke or Vader even flying down the trench? They are engaged and shouldn't be able to move.

Theory: The Death Star has Intel.

Yeah, and Wedge has Grit. He is the only one able to move out from the fight, but only triggered when he suffers 1 dmg.
