BatSperaldo

Recommended Posts

Batwedge and Batpoe were briefly a thing when BB8 came out, but Speraldo's pilot ability offers a significantly cheaper way to field a "BatX"

Kullbee Sperado (26)
Push the Limit (3)
Renagade Refit(-2)
BB-8 (2)
Integrated Astromech (0)
Servomotor S-foils (0)

Total: 29

For those of you who wernt around for the combo, here's how it works:

The Xwing dials in a green maneuver. (with S-foils set to closed to get boost. Old version used T70 boost or Engine upgrade)

BB8 triggers, giving a pre-maneuver barrel roll at the ship's PS. PushtheLimit off the barrel roll action, recieving a stress to perform either a boost, focus or TL.(Kullbee Sperado then flips Sfoils back to 3 attack dice, unless you want a post-maneuver boost, or you need the 2 bank to stay green to clear PTL stress)

Perform the green maneuver you dialed in, clearing stress from PTL. If you dont bump, you then get your end-of-maneuver action normally.

I suspect this build will have a place in competitive play, so I'm posting this to mainly say "called it"

Not as competitive (due to PS), but still fun:

•Leevan Tenza (26) - X-Wing (T-65)

Juke (1),

•BB-8 (2),

Renegade Refit (-2),

Integrated Astromech (0),

Servomotor S-foils (0)

Same concept. Boost with BB8, Take the evade and stress. De stress with a green, take an action.

 

Granted, you don’t need Juke, but it makes the most sense.

Doesnt work- BB8 is a barrel roll, not boost.

It works with Flight Assist, though! For a point cheaper!

Your right, I could have sworn he was barrel roll and boost.

It's not really going to be competitive

Ps is too low and it has no defensive mods. For a measly point more, I can get FAA predator wedge 

Predator wedge doesnt have any more defensive mods (just the focus token), has less offensive mods on a speed 1 maneuver or 2 straight (Predator vs PTL TL, though it does reduce enemy evasion by 1/3 a point)) and still doesnt out PS the PS10s and 11 filling the meta.

Wedge out PSs Dash, Rey, Miranda, and also ties with Kylo. These are MASSIVE deals

predator v TL isn't that massive a difference, especially considering that you're not wedded to bb-8 greens. You also have to factor in Wedge's ability for offense, which is relevant for everything short of the ghost (1/3 a point is nonsense when focus, stims + LW, and c3po abound)

Kullbe enabling 2-banks for bb8 is cute, but I don't think it'll stack up at all to the more flexible and higher PS wedge
