Re: X-Wing

Thanks guys for the tips. I think I'll go ahead and get the Falcon first then keep an eye out for a sale on the Decimator.

I would love to add in the scum faction since I'm not a big fan of the empire, but then I would be starting from square one. I wish that they would include ships from all three factions in their starter sets.

Great trades with Onacara, Gypsy, SirGalahad, elltrain, generalgina, Concord, Just_a_Bill, LongHeroscaper, janus19390, and the very generous obfuscatedhippo.

Well, Scum wasn't even a concept from the get-go, else the Firespray certainly would have been Scum.

If you're interested in the Scum faction the Firespray would make a lot of sense. I find it a lot of fun to fly with the rear arc options and interesting pilots, but it can be flown in both imperial and scum lists. Once you pick up the Most Wanted expansion you'll have some decent scum options with the firespray to add to the y-wing and z-95's in Most Wanted.

That is not something I had even considered. I forget that some ships are shared between some factions. As you say, that would be a way to get a big ship for my immediate Empire needs, and also a start for the Scum. I have to really consider now what faction that I want go with. As much as I want to get everything for all factions I just can't afford it. Thanks rudyvalentine.

Re: X-Wing

I just finished my second game and I have a few questions.

1. Target Lock. If you lock on to someone and do not use it this round, do you get to use another action next round, while still maintaining a target lock?

2. Most pilots have an ability. Can you use a pilot's ability then also perform a regular action? Or do you choose one over the other.

3. One of the pilot abilities said you can turn in a focus token to either change one focus result to an evade on defense, or to a hit on offense. How is this different than just using a focus token on your action. It seems like a useless ability. What am I missing?

Re: X-Wing

1. Yes

2. You may use both, so long as the pilot's ability doesn't have the "Action:" header in the description anywhere. If it does have the "Action:" header, then that is one of your choices for an available action this turn.

3. I cannot think of who that particular pilot is off the top of my head, so I cannot reasonably answer that one right now. Lemme check, or post the pilot's name.

EDIT: If you're talking about Poe Dameron's ability, then you don't have to spend the focus at all. You simply have to have the focus token and, so long as you do, you can make those changes on offense AND defense. Pretty cool ability, actually.

Re: X-Wing

Spending a focus token turns all focus results into hits/evades, no one. With Poe Dameron's (and Luke's) ability, you can save your focus token for whenever you roll more than 1 focus result.

Yes it was Poe Dameron I was using. Him and Luke.

Just to confirm #1. If I have an unused Lock-On that is carried over from the previous round, this round I can also lay down a focus token on the same ship, while maintaining the lock-on?

Yes. That's what makes target locks useful. The ability to acquire them now and save them for later. Though it's best to target lock when you're not getting shot at as you won't have any defensive focus or evade otherwise.

You may trigger pilot abilities whenever they say they can trigger. They are not actions.

Alright. Thank you @MegaSilver and @rym for clearing this up for me.

I'm a little late here, but I have to say that picking up Most Wanted and then getting the rebel HWK, a rebel Y-Wing, rebel Headhunter, and Slave I, is a great way to expand your collection in both size and flexibility.
