Why Are You Bad At X-Wing?

Recommended Posts

.... because I have nearly every expansion but only fly 3 Rebel ships - YT-1300, YT-2400, and T-70 (Poe)

... because I know there are objectively better lists to fly, but I won’t touch them. 

... because I hate scum faction and won’t fly it

... because I hate Palptine, and won’t fly him. 

 

^^ This. Glad to know I am not the only one. 

 

For me? 

 

...I like to fly T65 X wings

...I won't fly Scum

...I can't do crossover lists with Sequel era and OT era ships

...I get angry at statistical normal distributions. I need stuff skewed (for me) heavily to the "shows a paint side". 

...I always focus when I should TL, and vice-versa

I suck because........

  • no guts no glory
  • my favorite pilot got bombed into oblivion
  • I can't fly a bomber
  • I second guess myself
  • I can't fly the same list every time I play
  • I just try stuff just because
  • even when I lose I am still having fun
  • Variance

Ok so...let me get this straight...

Some of us use jank so we know we are bad at X-Wing

Some of use don't use jank so we know we are bad at X-Wing

Yep that makes sense. 

There has to be a knowable answer to this question.

I think the point of this is to say why we are "bad" at X-Wing, meaning why we don't win tournaments or why people judge us badly. Personally, I'm actually a pretty good X-Wing player (I was, anyway), but because I won't fly Miranda/Nym or the latest flavour of the month list, I don't do so well. Thus, on paper, I'm bad at the game.

I am bad because:

* I have fun flying jank

* I have fun flying specific substandard ships like the G1A

* I will evidently spend however much on individual ships but I balk at the Raider for Palp

* I actually have more fun cracking jokes about how the game is going when I'm losing than I do just winning 

* I don't play enough

Ouch.

Bad is probably an overstatement, but as long as I keep flying XXX lists (either type) there will always be a limit on how well I can do.

I'm saving the dream for the next wave though.;)

I am bad at XWM because. . .

  • I staple VI to everything (but now that it's limited to 4 per squad, I'm getting better)
  • Never fly meta
  • Set my dials in such a way that assumes high PS is moving first
  • Do well for first the first half of the game, then pull some bonehead maneuver that tosses the game for sure
  • Never fly the same list twice
  • Build for theme and never for efficiency (a holdover from M:TG -- The Curse of the Goblin Deck Mentality).
