  • I was wondering if there was some way to privately message you, not necessarily about something in particular, just in general since it feels like we're the two members with the most seniority here, partially since I just view you as a friend and wouldn't mind chatting once in a while (I mean that in the least creepy way possible).

    If there is no way through Wikia itself, I can post either my Facebook name (relatively easy to sift through thanks to a hyphenated name) or my e-mail here if you'd prefer not to divulge that info publicly.

  • Wazat,

    I have a tournament coming up in a few weeks and I have been trying out quite a few lists. This is my latest and greatest and I want to see what you think.

    Tycho Celchu + Push the Limit + Chardaan Refit + Autothrusters + A-Wing Test Pilot + Wired
    Sabine Wren(Attack Shuttle) + Push the Limit + Twin Laser Turret + Nien Nunb
    Miranda Doni + Twin Laser Turret + Rey + Advanced SLAM


    I think Sabine and Miranda are there to say but I've been having trouble finding another ship that I want to use in conjunction with it. I haev considered a Y-Wings with TLTs and R2-D2,  a T-70s with Autothrusters and R2, and a HWK with TLT and Moldy Crow or Rey. Thoughts? Thanks so much for your time.

    • I do like R3-A3 but I want to keep him alive as long as possible. I would love C-3PO nut I really don't feel like shelling out $20-30 for one card because I'm planning this for a tournament. I'll probably put chopper on the ARC because he and R2 synergize pretty well and he's free and could be useful. Good call on Jan I forgot I had a open crew on Kyle :p. I'll probably add Rey onto Miranda then just because I love having lots of focus. Thanks for all your help guys!

  • I was thinking about the new EPT, Intensity, and thought about BB-8 Wedge.

    Then I though Garven Dreis would be a neat way to help Wedge recharge (with an evade after BB-ing, a regular focus, and a Garven passed focus, he should be able to recharge frequently enough methinks) and then I started tinkering in a squad builder, and then I came up with this: https://geordanr.github.io/xwing/?f=Rebel%20Alliance&d=v4!s!0:232,-1,148:-1:20:;1:-1,206:-1:20:;82:170,-1,3:-1:20:&sn=T-65s&obs=


    I was already missing my X-Wing playing time, now I really miss it.

    • I'm not quite that wary, though I may be optimistic to the point of folly... the TIE/x7 and Manaroo rise and fall is a cautionary tale worth remembering.

      We'll have to see what combos people come up with, but right now these titles don't scare me.  For example, to give a Kihraxz Boost, Barrel Roll, and Autothrusters, that's 5 points; the Protectorate Starfighter gets the same for 2, as it already starts with an amazing action bar, and its dial is still superior.

      Other interesting & discounted mod options include Guidance Chips (good for a missile), Pulsed Ray Shield (quite good), Stealth Device (not world shattering on a base 2 agility ship, and pulsed ray is likely better), Experimental Interface (interesting...), and Hull/Shield Upgrade (2 points for +1 hull might not be bad at all).  The Kihraxz also gets to play with a cheaper missile, illicit, and/or elite.  Basically you can load it up fat without necessarily breaking the squad's bank.

      It sounds amazing, but on a ship that wasn't seeing much use because of its low effectiveness to cost ratio, I don't think the meta will explode.  The Kihraxz dial is good but not amazing, and its stats/abilities aren't incredible for its price like the TIE Defender or Jumpmaster.  At this point, I'm still pondering on which combos would be good for spending the points, and how effective the result will be.

      I'm guessing it will be solid... though only one combo has to be broken-good for it to be a problem, so we'll see.  The first concern I had was a hit&run fat shield recharging Talonbane that stays at range 3 until he's moving in for the kill.  Though that still doesn't sound scary, especially compared to Rebel Regen in its many iterations.  With only 1 shield, the Kihraxz, StarViper, and Scyk are a lot easier to bludgeon to death despite regaining their shielding (and it's tougher than just doing a green maneuver).

  • I miss X-Wing :(

    Looks like I'll have a store championship an hour drive away some Saturday in June, but that may it for the summer.

    • Looks like I'll have a tournament on the 3rd of June.

      Since I've got 0 recent experience with anything, I think I'll probably just be using my Backdraft-Vessery-Deathfire list, especially since I rather enjoy flying it.

      I'll be rolling into a pretty small town though, and I think their community's a tad on the more casual side because they're somewhat isolated, so I'll have to play it cool. While rolling sparkly dice.

    I stumbled across this page randomly and noticed the charts at the end. They have errors in them so I removed them from the page. I think the slots one is very sloppy. And then there is the sloppy and redundant maneuver charts diagram, where there should be a link to your maneuvers comparison page.

    • I'd be good with just linking to the Comparison pages, as you said.  That is an extremely old page and I keep forgetting to revise it.  Nearly everything on it needs to be redone.  I'm tempted to just delete the page since it doesn't seem to have anything the main page doesn't already list more usefully.

  • I just realized that you have more edits than the Bossman. How Hilarious. Thanks for putting up with all my silliness, and keep doing great things here! You are pretty much (as many have said) the heart and soul of this small corner of the internet, and I just felt like thanking you for everything you've done here.

    Ummm... cliche...

    May the Force be with you!

    • Protectorates are fun.  Enjoy!  And Strikers are a delight, I recommend grabbing one unless the upsilon tempts you more.

      The pulsed ray shield is going to be nice for the Kihraxz; nice to see it getting a buff.  But as you said, it's best to proxy upgrades and pilots because this game can be absurdly expensive otherwise.  That's probably going to be my plan for the C-ROC stuff for a long time.  It's really hard to justify buying an expensive Epic ship I'll get to fly maybe once a year at most.  :/

    • Oh, and I forgot that the ARCs I could use.

      It's also best to proxy when there are nice 30 year olds with stable jobs who can lend you the things you need if you ever need them for a tournament.

  • Greetings!

    I have been making a companion Android (and possibly iOS, pending a purchase of a developer's license) app for the game, specifically for searching and filtering cards rapidly, since there are very few apps that fill that niche despite all the squad builders out there. My friends and I are constantly wondering what ships have such-'n'-such an upgrade while also having a turret primary, etc., so I took it upon myself to make one.  I have used this wiki to gather data in text form, and give credit to the wiki in the app.

    However, I'm brand new to this sort of thing, when it comes to publishing, permissions, credit (how exactly should I word it, etc.), and how that relates to open-source stuff like wikis, so before I go further with the app, I would like to discuss a few points with you admin fellas to make sure I'm not stepping on any toes!  I'm a bit paranoid, I just want to make sure nothing about it ends up harming the wiki or its contributors in any way.

    • Hmm... That's a good question.  When I wrote the Compare Ship pages, I had full intention of letting people use them to build apps (hence the Maneuver Data Tables, which aren't as useful visually, but they're much easier for harvesting data for apps).  Personally, I'm not the least bit offended since you're granting credit; in fact, I'm delighted.  A good app that allows easy searching of features would be fantastic.  That's part of what we are trying to do with various tables and categories, and an app might make that a lot easier (wikia's search feature is kinda crap for that).

      I have a sneaking suspicion that Wikia is perfectly happy to allow people to make apps from its data, since it provides an open API to do so.  Maybe you'll want to quickly scan the policies of Wikia itself to make sure there aren't restrictions to how you mine or what you use.

      If you are still unsure, you can also check with the big boss, Cbyehdio.  He's the admin of admins for X-Wing, so to speak.  :D  But he stays pretty busy, so to get his attention you'll likely have to post directly on his wall.

    • Fantastic! I will do some digging into Wikia's policies.

      Thanks for all the info, especially the API link; I had no idea that existed.  That'll save me a huge amount of time!

    • Absolutely ping us when your app is ready.  I'd be interested in using it.  ^_^

    • I've got a free iOS app for the game out there. While I've not taken text from this wiki directly, I have used it as a reference to find the info I needed. Now I'm wondering if I should at least add some credit to here on the info page :)

  • Wazat, a few things.

    First, do you think that it would be better to change the paraphrase section of the Upgrade Cards with "Action" Header page to a verbatim reading of the cards text? Because I was having trouble making it work for some of the more complex, newer cards.

    Second, and on a smaller note, how are you supposed to center align inside of the charts, I couldn't get that to work.

    Thanks!

    • Take a look at what I did with slicer tools. If that's good, I'll redo the chart in that format.
