What wing is your wing?

Recommended Posts

Before I get started with the focus of this thread, I want to lay some ground rules for responses. 

No NERF herding. 

No FAQ begging. 

No TLJ argument thread hijacking.

No WAAC vs Scrub bile.

I think that covers the worst content of the forums in recent weeks.

Now, I want to know your answer to this question: If competitive X-wing were divided into formats based on archetypes, which format would you compete in?

In other words, which wing is your wing?

A couple more ground rules:

You can only choose one. 

Please no arguments over, "my wing is better than your wing." This is kind of community market research. 

If I missed your style, please add it. 

Examples:

Meta-wing (basically what exist now, no divisions.)

Ace-wing (Minimum 2 unique pilots, no turret primary weapons, no ordnance)

Bomb-wing

Turret-wing

Swarm-wing (true swarms, ace + mini-swarm, Palp + mini-swarm, etc)

Thematic-wing (Events with a TO designated theme. OT, EU, etc.)

Starwing (thanks @GrimmyV)

Ordnance-wing (thanks @SabineKey)

Jank-wing (thanks @gjnido)

Epic-wing (thanks @Darth Meanie)

Generic-Wing (thanks @Polaritie)

Reckon i'd like to play Swarmwing, if'n I could.

Edit: I 'spose I should qualify that by saying that I fly Scum, and prefer mixed swarms.  If that matters.

I love Jank. What parameters do you set for a Jank-wing event without killing the soul of jank?

Ugh... that's tough... 

But I think it's safe to say that neither Harpoons, TLT or Sabine would be welcome... 

But it is hard to come up with sensible limitations that don't defeat the purpose. I think it would have to be a self-moderating thing...

This inspired me. Make it democratic. All the lists get posted before the event. There's a round of player approval. If your list isn't endorsed by at least half the competition, then it isn't jank enough. The list with the most endorsements gets a tournament point as an incentive to bring the jankiest jank jankable.

Yup. Just fly casual
