  • I liked R3-A2 on the high PS guy to shut off ACD. Assault Missile there doesn’t quite have solid odds, either. But definitely it looks playable. 4 hours, 58 minutes ago
  • I am thinking of bringing back the Assault Missile. It’s a good weapon, and with the right cards there’s no reason for it to be unpopular. Formation play certainly seems as popular as ever. 5 hours, 45 minutes ago
  • A switch to Wes probably saves 1 damage a turn on Biggs, but in the match-up vs Whisper I’d rather have Wedge here. Wes is also useful vs an Assault Missile, discarding the TL on Biggs that will otherwise ruin your day a little. It’s easy to switch pilots there based on local meta. 6 hours, 19 minutes ago
  • Well, let’s see; I want to make the most of Airen’s ability, since his personal offense is rubbish. Cluster Missiles do suck compared to Concussion Missiles, but +1 action to another ship could more than offset the lower missile output — I just need to make sure the Cluster Missile launches. I’D RATHER HAVE ENGINE [...] 15 hours, 44 minutes ago
  • With just Stygium if you de-cloak before moving you get 1 Evade, so if you then cloak you don’t get a second Evade. Adding AdvS doesn’t change anything… but that’s not what the ruling is about. The ruling concerns a Phantom that begins the turn uncloaked, as to whether it can on a turn choose [...] 1 day, 1 hour ago
  • I’m not seeing the link to this episode. 1 day, 7 hours ago
  • Never mind; found it at the bottom — conflicts with the language elsewhere in the FAQ, wasn’t something particularly powerful that needed disabled either. Stygium Particle Accelerator, a card people already weren’t running much because it was too weak, gets worse. Perhaps I’m feeling cynical today, but I’m filing that information in the same part [...] 1 day, 7 hours ago
  • Where did you see that in the FAQ? 1 day, 7 hours ago
  • What you define as agency, I’ve always termed as aggro. Good aggro puts control on tilt by bringing hard-to-counter threats, forcing control to play differently than it wants to play and often catching control with threat it cannot repel at all. Bad aggro brings the wrong threats, letting control play the game it wants as [...] 1 day, 7 hours ago
  • I am pleased with the change to Barrel Roll. Many times I have wanted to roll and had the edge of the board too close to me, and I have thought this ability was REALLY good on large ships since the start of Wave Two (which is why I flew it!). It is a needed [...] 1 day, 8 hours ago

      No, as long as you don’t change it to Zach Bunn. Otherwise I would riot.

      Can you calculate the probability of that?

    Just had a FANTASTIC game vs JFunk, which ended as my third ever draw. We played:

    28 Roark w/ IonT + Engine
    72 (x2) Blue w/ HLC + AdvS + Engine

    24 Roark w/ IonT
    27 Hobbie w/ R3A2
    48 (x2) Blue w/ FCS

    I’m still not pleased with my Roark tech, and am thinking of switching back to Gold and just taking on Phantoms the hard way. I miss all the little advantages my Gold had over Roark. 2 days, 20 hours ago

      It was a fun game to play. I’m going to be working on getting more out of Hobbie in the list. Hopefully he will pull his weight in points if I play him better.

  • Theorist commented on the blog post Help with Jan Ors list
    I can only say that I have brought 3 small ships to a battle, outfitted mainly to survive/avoid enemy attempts to joust, and won with those lists. They are actually a lot of fun to play… more flying and less dice rolling, as far as whether you win or lose. I do understand what you [...] 3 days, 6 hours ago
  • Theorist commented on the blog post A Swarm of Predators
    I approve of this thinking. I am not yet 100% on Test Pilot + Predator with the A-wing because there are several other epts that are also very good in that slot (Wingman, AdRush, VI, Swarm Tactics, Deadeye)… but I think Predator might at least belong in that list of very reasonable options. I might [...] 3 days, 7 hours ago
  • Theorist commented on the blog post Help with Jan Ors list
    What a list! It’s a lot of things I never thought I’d see — starting with someone other than me putting Engine on a HWK. Obviously I think that is a great call as a rule. Turret arcs and reposition tools fit very naturally with one another. Jan’s ability is a hard one to maximize [...] 3 days, 7 hours ago
  • Theorist commented on the blog post Galactic Cup Top 8
    It’s funny that you mention that. Part of my reasoning behind going 4 forward at the end of the game instead of juking was because Rekkon didn’t cut to intercept with his B-wings earlier. It seemed like he was determined not to get caught by a slow move, so I just kept going fast. My [...] 3 days, 19 hours ago

  • Theorist commented on the blog post Balancing a Squad
    I like Roark + Swarm Tactics as a combo — it’s perfect for the meta. I like the squad as well. Luke is arguably wrong for the meta. His ability is best vs ATT 2, and far less potent vs anything else. He’s definitely wrong vs Phantom’s ATT 4-5, HLC Defender’s ATT 4, and Han [...] 4 days, 4 hours ago
  • Theorist commented on the blog post Day 4: Citizens of Innsmouth
    I have, on rare occasion, used both. Fire Kami used Ignite, but I also brought out a Tanker Truck. (I actually don’t like the Psi-Eel BECAUSE I think the Tanker Truck is better. But Psi-Eel will do, and it is faster.) 4 days, 20 hours ago
