2 A-Wings and 2 B-Wings. Awesome maneuverability and the B-Wings hit like a tank. I wasn’t able to use the HLC very often so I may bump those and use the points for Hull upgrades or an initiative bid.

Yeah I'm digging these pilots together. Have a similar build but with some different Talents mostly.

I don't think Braylen really needs Predator for redundant rerolls so I choose to have Selfless on him. He can maybe save the A's from blowing up or just spread damage around the list which is a good thing for you and an annoyance for your opponent.

Elusive on Ten Numb is pretty nice too because he wants to do those reds to stress out anyway, but that's preference if you'd rather go for offense or defense. 

Then I kinda like Intimidation on Arvel so that he reduces the agility of your target for up to four shots coming at it.

Good stuff though. I am looking forward to getting these 4 on the table for some As and Bs fun.

I’m still experimenting, but I’m really enjoying seeing 1.0 “garbage” viable and fun again.

1) Predator doesn't work on HLC even if you didn't already have rerolls

2) Intimidation on Arvel is undeniably good, and Predator on Jake is very reliable.

3) Are the Tractor Beams worth it?

4) I find AdSen FANTASTIC on Ten. And Elusive. HLCs could go for it methinks

I understand hat Predator on,y works with primary weapons. 

Ill try intimidation of Arvel. 

Tractor beams were a lot of fun. I could barrel roll these ships out of my arc or into the arc of other friendly ships that had yet to fire. Also setting up a ship so that it had to fly through an obstacle and lose its action on the following turn was great. 

I could lose the HLCs. I didn’t end up using them often but they did come in handy a few times. And 4 dice is always good. 

 

This is list was just FUN to play. B Wings are so maneuverable. How could I ever refuse? I feel like I win when I lose.

Well you can do a solid ABABA now.  Can swap the Intimidation for Crack Shot on the GSPs.  Then you have 5 points for...something?
