Should U-Wing title be changed

Recommended Posts

Yeah, yeah, yeah, blah, blah...... I'll not lament over the U-Wing until the Lambda gets its ability to gracefully turn on a dime as it did in Return of the Jedi when landing; they blew that fact big time. In the movies, she's much more agile at low speeds than the U-Wing.

I'll give that maneuver on the Lambda when the Millennium Falcon gets its maneuverability with Han at the controls.:D

I was always in favor of "Pivot Wing" being restricted as Shuttle only and the U-wing card calling it a "U-wing Shuttle". That way they could have given that Lambda fix with the U!

Incidentally though that would also make it equippable to the Upsi(where it might be perceived as a problem, but I doubt that would put it near the top) as well as the sheathipede, and Attack Shuttle where it would be a non-functional add on until another card is released to enable stops on those, but now Chopper could eat it for a shield!

"Start of activation phase" like S-Foils

This would fix my main problem with the Pivot title. That k-stop could come out of no where and smack you upside the face.

"Before revealing your maneuver, you may flip your Pivot Wing Title card."

I’d take this too.

I've always taken X-Wing ship maneuvers to be, essentially, the ones folks can do at combat speeds in a combat situation.  Pretty much any ship in Star Wars can just stall, spin on it's vertical axis, or reverse *when no one is shooting at you* but that's not what's happening in the game.

Holy crud.

As currently printed, I feel like the Stall-Flip aspect would probably be fine, but the increased agility most of the time wouldn't.  A 2-agility Palp Shuttle will take a reasonable amount more fire before it dies.  You'd be looking at something like a third of a damage up to a half a damage less per hit (depending on focus, etc).  That'd be pretty big.  I don't think it breaks the game, but still.

Good point. I think my on release argument was that the U should have been 2agi on its ship card with the title reducing agility by 1 on the landing side, and I was never a fan of the autoinclude/free titles (especially when they're actually Features!) so I probably wanted the U to be a point cheaper and the Pivot Wings to cost a point or two.

At this point that would be a very significant errata since they have yet to change a stat line after release.
