Tidbits nobody seems to be talking about

Recommended Posts

Just a few pieces of info that I haven't seen anybody mention/discuss, so I wanted to make sure I wasn't the only one to notice.

  • TIE/sa can drop bombs using the bank templates of the same value as the straight template
  • TIE/sa has one linked action, a BR into ???
  • TIE/sa has a red reload action
  • Deathfire may drop or launch a device on death
  • Gunboat has no linked actions and no ability text
  • Gunboat has white reload and SLAM actions
  • Rho flavor text references both Gunboat titles
  • Valen Rudor in a TIE/d now
  • B-Wing dial has changed a lot

Ah ha! Still hope that it’s the new HWK dial!

Back to the topic of B-Wings, I like what i’m seeing there. Lots more blue maneuvers and more turn around options. I can definitely get use to that.

Where's this info from?

Reload and slam should be white, just give you a weapons disabled token.

I want to know more! I want to know everything! I want to play 2.0 with gunboats already! :D

We don't know if reload and slam give weapons disabled tokens anymore... you are making a 1.0 assumption. (unless i missed something)

Also, why should it be white? do you have in-depth experience practicing with the 2.0 bomber to determine that?

It's a very different dial, but overall much stronger.  Very fast for a bwing.

This is all from the teaser trailer.

That above (probably B-wing) dial, in case anybody is having trouble is: 

1: LB, straight, RB (all blue) 

2: LT, ({LB, straight, RB} blue), RT

3: L-sloop (red), LT, LB, straight, RB, LT, R-sloop (red)

4: straight,  K-turn (red)

So yeah. Very different.  No more red 1 turns which is the only loss. Otherwise it's better in every way.

You're right of course, that was just my poorly justified opinion.

Tie Bomber's linked action is almost certiantly Target lock. They can squeeze out that little bit more range from their missiles by rolling first.

Edit: I suppose missiles are fired with focus tokens now, so that's a thing.

Is the B-Wing dial the one with the reverse maneuver seen in the “All Wings Report In” article?

Yeah those look like S-loops.

But a B-wing with 2K and 3Sloops, that would be sick!

:( I actually liked the 2K on the B-wing, it allowed it to do some interesting maneuvers in a pinch. You just can't try and joust with it or else you might end up turning your back on the enemy.

The 2 k-turn was pretty cool, but I also was put in the unpleasant position of wanting to use it while nose to nose with a big base ship. 

It seems like they are making the B-Wing faster in general, so it makes sense that the k-turn is too.

All of the missiles we have seen so far require a lock. I agree that a lock is most likely.

Also in that trailer, the falcon's dial says 'Modified YT-1300'. 

Different dials for different forms of a ship? So outer rim smuggler has a worse dial for example? 

That would be really cool, actually.

Valen in a Defender and not a tie fighter ? why ? :o

because if your ability involves defending, what better ship could you possibly be in ??

 

 

between the banky bomb and possible roll --> TL, bombers are shaping out to be pretty neat

Here's hoping the Defenders get reinforce and/or regen like they deserve. Those things had god tier shield gens.

They removed the one hards though...... that was really useful, but 3 T-rolls helps turn around on big ships so... eh.
