Re: X-Wing by Fantasy Flight Games
XXX is so tough but I feel so good whenever I get a win! Scotty I saw your latest XXX, really like the ion torps on Wedge...but I can't give up that proton torpedo crit kicker...

Are you cool with going full 100 points? Don't feel the need for an initiative bid?

Here's me right now:

Re: X-Wing by Fantasy Flight Games
The SC I went to over the weekend was full to bursting of PS 9 and PS 8, but higher than that was sparse.  I counted, among all  lists that I played with, against, and adjacent to, a grand total of two other PS 10s (Poe, Boba) and one PS 11 (Vader).

I'm confident enough in my skill as a player to deal with PS matchups that I was willing to sacrifice the PS advantage and initiative bid (to being "merely" 9/9/9) in order to bring an answer for the last list metatype I had difficulty dealing with.

Using Predator and Chips is almost mandatory though.  You'll still average enough hits to punch through most anything, with the possible exception of a turtled up Soontir at range 3.

I like the double torps you've got going.  I prefer Flechette on Wes, if only for the utter dick move of double stressing and then ripping off between one and three tokens depending on rolls and target.  I also toyed with the idea of flying Tarn instead of Luke, and launching the torp at whoever chose poorly in the combat phase.

Re: X-Wing by Fantasy Flight Games
My XXX list has now logged three consecutive 100-0 victories against online opponents.  I'm really liking how it's turning out.
