Last played X-Wing at the UK Games Expo with good ole Wave 1 and 2 - Its been a good amount of time now since Wave 3 has been out, what new strategies, decent ships and cards have stood out and changed the meta game? (if any)

Just trying to catch up, appreciate any info!

Advanced Proton Torpedoes, Heavy Laser Cannon and Darth Vader are some upgrade cards I'd miss. I love the B-Wing model, and a lot of players like the cheap pilot with HLC in their lists. And I really Kyle Katarn but I"ve always been Dark Forces fan

The only wave 3 ship i have is a TIE Bomber, which I really like so far. You can load that baby up with a decent bit of firepower.

Hmm, missing? A wider range of squad builds? Wave 1 and wave 2 builds are still quite competitive for the most part, but it is good to see some variance on the table for squads and some different strategies played out.

All in all the new models look pretty cool as well.

For competitive builds, you will see B-Wings with HLCs a lot. You occasionally see Bombers but not as often. I really like Kyle Katarn + Moldy Crow + Recon Specialist (hoarding focus icons and giving them to other players). Shuttles don't appear very often, unfortunately, but I love the model.

Advanced sensors with a Lambda or B wing. You can do your action then bump a ship or k turn.

Wave 3 was very dissapointing for me. In Spain we usually see:

Ibitsam + PTL + sensor jammer
B wing with generic pilot and advanced sensors or HLC

Lambda shuttle with generic pilot and darth vader

bomber special characters with draw their fire or squadron leader, and advanced torpedoes on Rhymmer. Less generic pilots than expected.

HWK is usualy selected as Roark Garnet with ion turret but sometimes you could see Kyle Katarn even with blaster turret, title and recon specialist, some people use chewbacca crew card to give it more endurance.
