    Hmmm.

    M-3A Interceptor
    Juke (2x2=4)
    Stealth Device (3)

    I hope we're not like... waaaaaay undergunned with a pile of Scyks...

    The reason I am grabbing Experimental Interface is so that I will be able to use my action to focus, tl, barrel roll, or evade, then give someone the ability to take their own action via Squad Leader.

    In general, my plan is to hang back and try to stay out of arcs while taking potshots with the mangler. Stress shouldn't be too bad to clear with the 1 banks, 2 straight and banks, and 3 straight being green.

    Further advancement in the Scyk could have me upgrade to a Heavy Laser cannon for more sniping, or an engine upgrade and evasive maneuvers to become more of an arc-dodger.

    That makes sense. Are EPT cards discarded after use?

    No, not usually.
    In this, any card that says it is discarded when used is then available for you in the next mission. If it doesn't tell you to discard, you keep it for the duration of the mission!

    Sign me up, I'll look at ship options tonight since I know Jack about the pirate ships. Also there may be periods of silence at which point I authorize the squad to make moves for me

    EPT cards are also less likely to get destroyed if you eject

    Alright, I'm going to take a longer look at this, and maybe reconsider my ship choice, but that has to wait until I finish work.

  • crimsoncoyotecrimsoncoyote Registered User regular
    Personally, I would suggest jumping in a Y-wing, kitting it out with a turret and an astromech, and going to town.
    It's got 5 hull points and 3 shields, so it takes a beating, and it isn't too hard to fly.

    You can skip the BTL-A4 title, if you want, since it's a bit tighter on the targeting requirements. R4 Agromechs are great for Scum Y-wings: BTL-A4+Ion Cannon turret+R4 Agromech (7XP) or non-BTL-A4+Blaster Turret+R4 Agromech (6XP), but less good with a Twin Laser Turret (TLT is good in its own right; choose a different astromech if you like the look of TLT).

    I just like the idea of having a quicker ship.

  • Albino BunnyAlbino Bunny Quantronic Dreamgirl Registered User regular
    I'd go with TLT, Unhinged Astromech.

    Easy to use weapon with an easier to fly Y-Wing.

    That's totally fair too!
    Go with what you find fun :)

    If you're going to be in the thick of it with the M3-A, I definitely suggest taking a defensive upgrade of some sort.

  • BrodyBrody The Watch The First ShoreRegistered User regular
    With the Shield upgrade, isn't the M-3A just as durable as the Z-95?

    "The shore does not dream of you." - Blind poet Gallan.
  • Albino BunnyAlbino Bunny Quantronic Dreamgirl Registered User regular
    It's actually better because it has an extra evade dice. Though considering Stealth device puts you up to a whole 4 dice till you get hit (and honestly, you're perfectly capable of being two shot) it and a mangler cannon are probably the way to go with over shield upgrades, which costs an extra point regardless.

  • see317see317 Registered User regular
    Finished reading the other thread, looks like a fun thing you're doing here.

    If you've room for one more, sign me up.
    Otherwise, I guess put me on the backup roster in case someone needs to drop out.

    What about
    M-3A:
    - Stealth Device (3)
    - Engine Upgrades (4)

    "The shore does not dream of you." - Blind poet Gallan.
  • Albino BunnyAlbino Bunny Quantronic Dreamgirl Registered User regular
    Two modifications. Can't do it.

    Your start is:

    One Elite Pilot Talent
    One modification
    One Torpedo/cannon/missile.

    Basically if you open up a builder select one of the named M-3A pilots and put the heavy title on them. That's what you can pick.

  • BrodyBrody The Watch The First ShoreRegistered User regular
    Damn, I knew there was a reason I hadn't tried that earlier. I'm at work, so my access to the builder is limited.

    Part of the fun of this though is you get more modifications and EPT's for your ship as you play (which you don't in standard X-wing). So you can totally eventually get a super ship with all the stuff on it.

    EDIT: That's a point actually, @DaMoonRulz you might wanna consider swapping one of the modifications unlocks for a second/first illicit upgrade seeing as it's Scum.

    @DaMoonRulz
    One quick suggestion: CTRL-M puts a colored dot on ships/dials in Vassal X-wing. You can cycle through various colors.

    Might help people track the action to have each player distinguished by color.
