Are you solely a Rebel or Imperial player?

Recommended Posts

Just curious if some people consider themselves a Rebel or Imperial player.

 

I would make this into a poll but I can't see how to make one here.

 

For me, I would say I am both. I like all the ships and don't mind playing either or. I just wonder if there is legal rules for combining both. At least I can do that with "house rules" for me and my son.

 

So how about you boys and girls. Are you both, Rebel or Imperial player and why.

Pretty much 90% of my matches I have played Imperial.  It started with the fact that everyone I played against had already setup a Rebel list, but has continued to the point that I can call myself an Imperial Loyalist.  Now when I try rebels, I find myself spinning maneuver dials over and over, looking for my beloved 1-hard turns, k-turns, and options.  Every time one of my no-name TIE pilots goes the distance, like in a game last night where one Black Squadron Pilot dodged 5 Ion volleys then soloed a y-wing and HWK, I look at my points invested and know the Emperor is proud.

My main interest is Imperial but I've played plenty of games as Rebel. If a scenario proves to be one-sided or specially hard my regular gaming buddy and myself will swap sides and play it again, to see whether we'll be able to get a different outcome.

I try to play both sides, but I mainly play Rebel (probably about 90% of the time). This isn't really for thematic reasons (I'm not a "good guy," per se) but more just because I prefer the ship stats and pilot abilities on the Rebel side.

After playing a couple of games with both, I'm actually warming up to Rebels.  Overall, I like both factions because of how unique their ships are and how different their pilots are.

    I love the Imperial faction from far over, I have more action figures from Imperial, I play the Imperials faction in Galactic Battlegrounds, and I have more minis from Imperials in the WotC game, and in this game I have more ships, but I like to play both factions, I like the powerful pilots of the rebel, and I like the swarm of the Imperial, and for the cards I prefer to play with the Imperial Navy greettings.

Imperials for me. I have both sides but only have two regular opponents and one only bought rebels, the other prefers rebels so it just sort of stuck.

I have started playing rebels a bit now but it feels unnatural after si long playing as the empire.

Have always had so many list ideas, I nwver get to test them all anyway so probably Why i stick to one side.

I do find the imps give you a greater range of squads to build.

I think Star Wars features the best starship design ever and i love both the X-Wing and the TIE Fighter.

But for most games I prefer to fly in an eyeball with many friends at my side :)

 

Besides: I also love the WH40K imperial ship design, those of the old Wing Commander games and the classic (!!!) Battlestar Galactica cylon ships
