Whilst working overseas isn't ideal when keeping a blog up to date, it certainly does allow me to analyse squads with a lot of time. This squad for the Rebels is no different, taking a classic pair and adding in a new Elite Pilot Talent from Wave XI. This squad has been posting successful wins all across the globe, and for good reason. If you're a fan of two-ship builds and fancy dabbling in the Rebellion, then look no further.
Looking to strike fear into the heart of the enemy when they look across the table? Then be sure to check out this Scum & Villany build featuring two pilot skill 9 aces capable of inflicting heavy damage.
I've been brain storming Rebel squads lately, and it hardly comes as a surprise that I've been motivated by Nands Torrs intriguing Rebel squad that he locked horns battling it out with a dual Jumpmaster squad.
Ever since the U-Wing made its debut, I've failed to get it to fit into a squad to do it any justice. However, whilst playing around on Squad Benchmark, the more I played with this build, the more I'm inclined to say its results are surprising. A disclaimer before we being however, because I'm currently overseas I haven't physically play tested this squad, but rather, online simulations is the only raw data that I have.
Usually, I'm lost when it comes to Rebel builds. The amount of time I dedicate to Imperials or Scum is far greater, and I do not tend to see many Rebel players at the few tournaments I attend. But I want to change my ways and gain a deeper understanding of its strategy to improve my overall X-Wing game.
This squad comes from a brain-storming session during working hours, trying to include dual ARC-170's. I didn't think it was possible to run them how I wanted and had points left over for a third ship, but I've stretched the goal further to add a fourth ship, and the squad so far is very fun flying
When it comes to Rebel hard-hitters, there is a lot to choose from. Whilst I'm normally not a Rebel player, there are always a few squads that I'm drawn to, and this is no different.
I tend to always be drawn to two-ship builds, iconic pilots, with really cool abilities, and this squad fits all of those criteria.
