What is the best non unique empire filler max 25 points (no gunboats)

Recommended Posts

No GUNBOAT?   ☹️

 

Well, what about Tempest, title, Sensor Jammer, add Harpoon or Cruise and Chimps for ‘hope to get someone in arc that I target locked’  hey at least it’s something different than AC.

Or phantom with targeting scrambler?

 

It feels that Rebels have the support role locked down yet Imp genetics are limited to super vulnerable Squint/striker, TIE shuttles and 2 Academies.  And the one TLT we got as mentioned above.

Sienar Specialist with TLT and LWF are amazing. Definitely go for that. I'm surprised they haven't made a bigger splash in normal games though. Three of them and Jones to help with rerolls is crazy deadly and helped me take out even harpoon squads.

How bout Baron of the Empire, Title, Juke, Autothrusters 24 points

 

Just to hear people say, "WTF is *that* pilot?"

 

or PTL for 25 points if you don't have it on your other ships

The only non-gunboat filler worth playing competitively:

Sienar Specialist with TLT, LWF. 25

Yup, this.

I mean, it's boring as heck to play.  0 skill required, too.  Gunboats are a lot less NPE and require quite a lot more finesse to fly well - so...why 'no gunboat'?

Only because he has the max number in his other 75 points the tourney allows him to use

Saber Squadron Pilot

Snap Shot

Auto Thrusters

The trouble with that is it's 25 points and lower PS than a lot of munitions ships. Focues + evade + autothrusters is good, but focus + autothrusters is very dicey.

Snap Shot + Juke + Autothrusters A-wings would probably get more mileage in the long run.

There is, of course, the whole pesky issue of A-wings not being available to the Empire.  Just one of the many stipulations the OP posted that were ignored.

Indeed. In that case I'd reiterate my original comment of a Snap Shot + Vader + Intel Doom Bomber. Same point cost, with a good deal of guaranteed damage and slightly higher PS.

OP specified no unique cards at all.

(Which admittedly, I missed too)

I like:

Black Squadron Scout, Predator, Ailerons, LWF, 25 points.

Sienar Specialist, Ion Cannon Turret, either UGR or LWF, 24 points.

Ion may help buy time for your Gunboats to turn around and reload.

Looking forward: generic TIE Reaper with Ailerons, Systems Officer and TIE MkII - green banks on both Ailerons and dial means you can activate Systems Officer twice.

Ooooooh I'd not noticed that interaction with Mk2.

That's super nice.

Abeit, it doesn't combo with Fleet Officer/Hux which is the big one I'm interested in.

Zeta Specialist (TIE/SF) with collision detector, title, and LWF is pretty solid at 25 pts.

Also, since large ships aren't allowed, you could consider:
Saber Squad pilot with ptl and mkii engine. Don't need autothrusters if there are barely any turrets.
