    40 Etahn w/ R2 + PTL + Engine 24 (x2) Bandit 35 Luke w/ R3A2 + VI + Engine One Phantom hunter, two decoy guns, and one dog-fighting Etahn. I’m not a huge fan of the Bandits here and think I’d prefer 1 better ship in that spot, but if you are just looking to [...] 10 hours, 4 minutes ago

    I have believed in Horton since day 1. He’s always done well for me. In this new meta he has to run R2D6+VI though, unless you have another Phantom hunter. Then he can run Deadeye to launch PTs into fat Han more easily, although I still think I’d stay with VI. Tarn or Biggs? I [...] 1 day, 7 hours ago

    It means 1 thing to me, more than anything — you can expect to face one in qualifying, and assuming they get by Phantoms you can expect to meet another one in elimination. Swarms always do reasonably. It’s a muscle squad; health and dice, win by attrition. In the hands of a skilled player who [...] 1 day, 8 hours ago
  • Theorist commented on the blog post Scum and Villainy Podcast: Episode 9
    You’d have to look at the number of people playing particular types of builds, and what more skilled players have gravitated toward playing. 4 small ships as a build are not something you can group as a single kind of squad just because they have 4 small ships. What have people attempted to bring? How [...] 1 day, 12 hours ago

    If you want a nastier Chewie or better Tarn, demote Rookie to Prototype w/ Refit to open up 6pts. A PROPER FAT CHEWIE, TARN AS TOUGH SUPPORT 60 Chewbacca w/ Predator + C3P0 + Luke + Engine + MF 25 Tarn w/ R7 15 Prototype w/ Refit A MORE ELUSIVE TARN, TO AVOID HEAVY FIRE [...] 1 day, 15 hours ago

    I feel like Gemmer is the weak link. Chewbacca is a costly but very durable turret. Tarn is a cheap and still very durable ATT 3 gun. Gemmer for cost is too defensive, with not as much relative offense as the others. My instinct is to drop him and make alternate use of the points. [...] 1 day, 15 hours ago

    The reason I may like Matt’s version better is that it aims at fat Han and swarms with more firepower, and it has more control. Nera is no longer a control ship once the FT lands damage. Rookie gets a single pass, and stress as control is weak unless the ion shot lands…except both ion [...] 1 day, 15 hours ago

    I just realized Enhanced Scopes is on Echo. That definitely changes things for me! 2 days, 7 hours ago

    I hope to make it a fight. I have faced Tony’s Chireneau build before in a casual game online, I think it may have been exactly that squad or very close. (I don’t think it was against Tony.) I won then and I hope to repeat. 2 days, 11 hours ago
  • Theorist commented on the blog post What goes with Dash?
    ATT 4 w/ F+TL, at Range 1, is not a terrible shot. If it’s a Phantom there, it will be AGI 2 thanks to Luke. 2 days, 12 hours ago
  • Theorist commented on the blog post What goes with Dash?
    I do also like: 37 Luke w/ VI + R3A2 + Engine + FT +3 Proton Rocket (for Dash; emergency Range 1 coverage) This should deal with rushers. Soontir, Whisper, and Echo will not be happy. It also works to fight an enemy Dash. That leaves just Chireneau w/ RebCap+Engine as a major threat, and [...] 2 days, 13 hours ago

    It isn’t the only counter I’ve faced so far; really I think every fight I’ve had so far was a Dash counter, but Tony’s will be the nastiest. He has 2 counters in the same list; the whole list is aimed right at Dash. Fringer is about to really earn its paycheck, if I win [...] 2 days, 13 hours ago
  • Theorist commented on the blog post What goes with Dash?
    Depending on how popular Dash is, the best support for him might be Vrill. Vrill’s ability makes him a good PTL counter, so you basically get the 42pt Chewbacca turret at 32pts vs an enemy Dash — to win the heads-up fight that will be common. You have 10pts to load out Vrill to deal [...] 2 days, 13 hours ago

    I suggest “There can be only one” appear at least once in a showdown of this caliber. 3 days, 10 hours ago
  • Theorist commented on the blog post TC Open Round 5.5: List Selection
    I have picked winners through the brackets, with Theorist vs Doobleg as the final table. But man was that impossible. I have very little idea who even makes it to Round 7. 3 days, 14 hours ago
  • “At most Soontir will have 2 ions on him” is not quite accurate. Soontir will definitely have 2+ ions of some kind on him, and 1 of those is very likely to land — he can only do so much dancing without the first shot becoming likely to hit, and if he turtles up he’s [...] 3 days, 17 hours ago
