    small msitake there – there are no evades on xwings.

  • Craig Bradford

    smaller mistakes – the subtraction for expose happens BEFORE the addition for range, so yeah, he should get that 1 dice for RB3. also, any crits rolled after the initial roll for an HLC happen, to clarify something said around the first HLC usage.

    So the Decimator and most imperial options suck in comparison to Rebels?

    • Chuck777

      No, not at all.

      • Harrower

        Definitely not at all. This was a pretty weak Imperial list tbh (though the Reb one wasnt great). Not sure where they found these “netlists” but….yeah.

        Expose on it’s own is a poor choice on a Decimator. You gain about as much damage increase just from a target lock. The only vaguely acceptable time to take expose is with an Experimental Interface as well to double up on actions. I still prefer Engine Upgrade + a different EPT though.

        Double Interceptors isnt bad, but imagine how much scarier that could be with a Phantom? Though once autothrusters are out, that could change….

      two of my favorite ships are Imperial options. The Tie Defender and the Tie Phantom. I think they are two of the best ships in the Imperial army as well.

  • Red_Five_Standing_By

    I wish X-Wings had evade.

    Cool Batrep though. Please do more X-Wing videos! 🙂

  • Good Bat Rep, some small mistakes but we all make them. Overall, a lot of fun to watch!

  • Arthur Hartman

    Granted I have only played one game with the Decimator, but I was not impressed. having zero agility is like not moving while your brother punches you in the face. when there are dice involved, I like to be able to roll dice as well.
