Reading through various blog posts, I’ve seen a lot of excited chatter about what squads people want to try and why, so I thought I’d make a post for everyone to share what squads they’re most excited to run. And maybe we can help tweak each others’ squads for maximum awesome. Please pick holes in my squads, I want to know their strengths and weaknesses and how you might counter them.
Here are a couple of squads I’m personally itching to try:
Mandalorian Patrol (100)
Boba Fett (39) + HLC (7) + Veteran Instincts (1) + Engine Upgrade (4) + Navigator (3)
Krassis Trelix (36) + HLC (7) + Recon Specialist (3)
The firepower in this squad is pretty devastating, obviously, with the 2 HLCs. However, only 2 guns which makes me leery. Boba Fett just looks ridiculously fun to fly with his upgrades and Krassis is pretty beastly defensively as well as offensively with 2 focus tokens. I’ve considered dropping HLC on Fett for maybe proton bombs or maybe dropping a few different things and trying to squeeze an academy pilot in there. Thoughts?
B-Wing Beauties (100)
Blue Squadron Pilot x2 (44) + HLC (14)
Rookie Pilot x2 (42)
Theorist mentioned this list in a blog post somewhere and I think it looks like lots of fun. You flank the battlefield with the two HLC Blues and run the rookies up the middle for distraction. Four heavy-hitting guns that present some difficult choices for an opponent. I’m quite excited to run this squad and just pre-ordered my two B-wings a few days ago for this very purpose. Thoughts on this squad? Strengths/weaknesses?
Just a short blog post, I’m curious to know which squads you all are most looking forward to running.
