I noticed recently that factually I have to little stuff for X-wing to play any meaningful games. X-wing, B-wing, Y-wing for rebellion, and little better for Empire in form of 2 Tie Interceptors, Tie Bomber, Tie Advanced and 2 Tie Fighters.
So regardless, I expanded the fleet with 2 A-wings, a B-wing, HWK-290 (a borderline case wether I care about it or not) and one Tie Bomber. I have some idea what to do with them, but mostly what to do with them to make Decimator suffer a bit ;). We shall see how that goes though.
Generally, I don’t really like the direction X-wing has been heading for some time – eg. trying desperately to scrape the empty barrel for yet another piece that can be converted to money. Another matter are some players, like a a religious fanatics:
“I thought of getting X-wing, just for the classics. Just for fun.”
“Really? It’s really cool game! <blaa, blaa>, [until] You have to get K-wing, slam is a real killer <replace your favorite here>”
“I don’t really like that, it’s pretty weird and not really my alley. I don’t care about competing”
“I know some really good tricks about K-wing you can beat heck out of your opponent in tournaments.”
“Really, I don’t care about tournamets, nor K-wing in that matter.”
“You know, this list with K-wing <shows favorite tournament setup> is really good. It won X Y and Z. You could get to our tournament…”
“What’s wrong with you? I said I don’t care about tournaments. Nor your K-wing… “
“Tournamets have such a …”
“Really? Which part you do not understand?”
“But everybody plays tournamets and you have to have K-wing, it’s super cool. It’s the greatest fun, all the meta and…”
“I don’t care. REALLY, I DON’T CARE”
Anyways, Tie bomber is there, well, because, I like Tie bombers. Not sure why, but they have some weird design appeal. Not that they are particularly useful – just like the rest of the things I got.
While talking about upgrading the Rebel fleet, Tantive IV would probably be interesting acquisition at some point.
