New List Idea - Do You Think It’s Any Good?

Recommended Posts

Imp Aces

(52) Grand Inquisitor [TIE Advanced v1]
Points: 52

(67) Darth Vader [TIE Advanced x1]
(6) Afterburners
(3) Passive Sensors
Points: 76

(57) "Whisper" [TIE/ph Phantom]
(9) Fifth Brother
(3) Passive Sensors
Points: 69

Total points: 197

 

I don’t know. I’m just afraid that if Vader pops in the 1st round of combat, I’d be done for. I’d have to be like a world champion or something...

Trip aces are dope, and Vader and Whisper are good choices, but I'd switch a thing or two around:

Vader should keep AB of course, but FCS is more valuable for him than PS.

As for Whisper, I recently flew against an absolute monster - 5Bro, Juke, Targeting Computer, and FCS. Offense is off the charts.

That leaves room for my favorite mini-ace, Duchess with Predator. You could also switch 5th Bro to her if you want to balance the offense out a bit better

You'd almost have to try to get Vader to pop in round 1. He's tough as they come, though I concur with putting a Fire Control System on him instead of Passive Sensors.

Holy crap. I'm trying this Thursday, along with Vader and maybe Duchess.

  1. Darth Vader (Tie Adv X1): Afterburners, Fire-Control System (75)
  2. "Duchess" (Tie Striker): Targeting Computer, Fifth Brother (60)
  3. "Whisper" (Tie Phantom): Targeting Computer, Fire-Control System, Outmaneuver (62)

Total is 197 points. Can drop Hate on Vader for 200, but no bid in an Aces list can be problematic. You have two extra mobile ships, that hurt like mad. You have Vader who can be surprisingly tanky. A more deadly "Duchess" could roll with Juke and grab Evade tokens each turn. 1 point more expensive.

The number of people who have failed to notice that the OP list is what won Worlds on Saturday is disappointing. One might argue on that basis that it is un-improvable :).

Every list is improvable. Depending on the player who flies it. For one Outmaneuver will outweigth Juke in its use. For someone else Crack Shot > Predator. Just a matter of preference. When I ask for advice here, is always to see other people's opinions and take on things, as I might have missed some interesting build myself.

PS. That list dropped my cousin in top 16 then, if it was the Champion's list. Also the rest of the Polish team in top 8 and top 4 :P

I wanted to add Heart and Laugh Emoji. Ironically, I too prefer FCS on my Vader. 
 

Guess that’s why I’m not a World’s Champ... 🙄🙄🙄😜
