The game is awesome, with sprinklings of awesome, wrapped in a layer of awesome. Pity stock is so hard to come by though
Does anyone know why the Tie Interceptor is so expensive? Does it have some nasty combo I am missing?
Its got good stats, 3 attack, evade and hull with a bunch of good actions to choose from.
To elaborate on the above. It's stat's are identical to the TIE Fighter, except for +1 Attack and the Boost action. The +1 Attack alone is worth it, apart from the Slave-1, no other Empire ship has 3 Attacks base. Now, think of some of the things you can do with Boost. Take the Daredevil upgrade on your Sabre Squadron pilot, you can now do a 180 degree turn ( 1 Hard Turn + 1 Hard Turn(Action). Try it, remember to follow the rules. Finish your move, then declare action. Don't just put the templates together like my friend did*). It's like a K turn without the stress, that can be done using 1 speed maneuvers. Think about it, your Sabre gets to do it first, and you get to watch with a smirk on your face as your opponent sends Wedge hurtling past you, ready to get some laser loving up the tailpipe. Add Vader+Squad Leader/Howlrunner for some shooting help.
Need to compare movement dials, but it does have a healthy amount of green maneuvers and kicks the TIE Fighter and Advanced in the crotch in that department.
The named pilots are damn good. Soontir say's FU to stress, Turr Phennir gets to pew pew you and roll out of harms way (not so hot against Han obviously), Fell gets to make an attack even though he's been smoked already.
* Pics because this is just worth explaining.
