    And yes, I’ve already thought of a Yorr + Interceptor combo to boost four times in one round. Not very effective, but plenty hilarious. 4 hours, 41 minutes ago

    I am always looking for new ways to use old pieces, as well. It’s just that it’d be very hard for an ept to replace “the best action you haven’t used this turn” as a superior choice. The closest is Lone Wolf which is offense and defense for no penalty, but with A-wing PTL+Lone Wolf [...] 5 hours, 12 minutes ago

    A-wing starts with PTL always — if you want an extra ept, add Test Pilot + (whatever). The only exception I know is if you want a really cheap Draw Their Fire for Biggs (18 Green w/ DTF + Refit), but I haven’t ever seen a list where I felt that quite worked. I look [...] 14 hours, 43 minutes ago

    Defensively, yes it’s better to Boost first then Roll. But when you are looking to to side-slip and get a free shot on a target coming your way, typically you will Roll first (out of arc) then Boost to get a Range 1 shot on the side of the target. Often in this situation Boosting [...] 14 hours, 53 minutes ago

    I cannot tell sizes. I don’t wish to vote for anything that isn’t 3×3 or 3×6 by mistake. (That isn’t to say I wouldn’t vote for one on purpose.) 1 day, 3 hours ago
  • I continue to object to the language used. It’s less overt, but clearly there is no change in POV behind the change in words. We seem to be having a do-over on something that turned out very well the first time, to pacify one person who won’t behave unless he gets his way. I’m firmly [...] 1 day, 3 hours ago

    Push the Limit reads that your extra action must be from your action bar. Expert Handling does not add Barrel Roll to your action bar. So Tycho must always Barrel Roll as his first action, if he wants to Barrel Roll at all. Thankfully, it’s usually better to Roll before you Boost when positioning. So [...] 1 day, 13 hours ago

  • Grats, Morgan! I’m not surprised to see a 2 ship concept do well, and dropping AdvS for C3P0 was a reasonable trade. He needed a more wily Ibbie though, didn’t he! I think we might see Han replace Gunner there, so that Ibbie gets fully built. And we might see people drop MF to play [...] 1 day, 15 hours ago
  • Let’s say you expect the full 58pt fat Han as your opponent. The best counter to C3P0 is to gave multiple guns on the target, as often as possible. Given that Han -WILL- eventually kill one of your ships, I think escalation with small ships to start must be 3+ ships. If you don’t want [...] 1 day, 16 hours ago
  • Option 2 is basically how option 1 would implement. It would become a toggle like stress. If SHIFT+T isn’t in use already, it’s the logical shortcut. Good ideas, Jeff. 1 day, 22 hours ago
  • Theorist commented on the blog post Is Jake Farrel the Rebel Soontir Fel?
    I would have to object. The best way that I can describe the Outmaneuver card is that if you don’t already have Roll+Boost (meaning PTL or Vader’s ability) to force your way out of your target’s arc, it’s a questionable card. That right now means only Jake and Vader are entirely suited to running Outmaneuver, [...] 2 days, 18 hours ago
  • Theorist commented on the blog post Is Jake Farrel the Rebel Soontir Fel?
    Probably the biggest issue here is the firepower difference: 34 Soontir w/ PTL + Shield 26 Jake w/ PTL + TestPilot + VI + Refit I think this is the most apt comparison — Soontir “toughened up”to match Jake. We could probably also forgo the Refit and add a missile, to ramp Jake’s output: 31 [...] 2 days, 22 hours ago
  • Theorist commented on the blog post How will S&V affect the meta?
    Actually your build would be better at maintaining Range 3 than Lando + Experimental Interface — you are on a higher PS pilot (probably Dash), and you are not stressed. 53 Dash w/ Outrider + HLC + Lonewolf + RecSpec I note that the mod slot is free. You could run Engine there as an [...] 4 days, 7 hours ago

    To be fair it’s only 42pts for such a nice gun. That last 6pts is optional, to defend said gun and help supply it with Focus tokens. You could run… 42 Fringer w/ Outrider + HLC 58 (x2) Blue w/ HLC 42 Fringer w/ Outrider + HLC 58 Chewbacca w/ Engine + MF + C3P0 [...] 5 days, 7 hours ago

    Lone Wolf is the right card. I like your choice of missile as well. It might be worth adding a Hull to that ship, since it’s effectively an ATT 3 gun. 6 days, 5 hours ago
  • Theorist commented on the blog post How will S&V affect the meta?
    The only major issue with Lando is action burden. If you want to Roll+Boost, no Lando and your attack/defense suffers. If you want Lando, you’ll have to settle for just Roll or just Boost and your positioning suffers. That’s why I like Kyle so much. He’s a third action basically. (In a way C3P0 is [...] 6 days, 12 hours ago
  • Theorist commented on the blog post How will S&V affect the meta?
    It would be really interesting actually. The pilot would want to go fast, get irritated if he had to go slow, and delight in feeling woozy from those severe G-forces. “Inches from death, but not as close as you sobs are gonna get! *pewpew!*” I could see it on something with terrible greens and lots [...] 6 days, 13 hours ago
