Wow, the TIE-phantom is good! Here are some of my thoughts on TIE-phantom decloaking maneuvers....

Nicely done sir!

I just wondered how many actual decloak Echo positions there really are when you consider the "slide" effect of the barrel roll.... Love this ship.

You are more than welcome to try to count them, sir!

Actually, if a phantom uses Advanced Sensors, something I didn't consider during the article, there are many more final positions because the decloaking maneuver could actually be a 4-barrel roll. Hmmm. If that's right, I think I need to add that to the article.

One point with your last diagram:
The decloaking rules state that you cannot perform the decloak if the maneuver template would overlap an obstacle token.

So, sadly, no decloaking through asteroids.

That was the point! If you want to decloak one way but there's an obstacle in the way, the amazing thing about Echo in particular is that you can decloak another way and get a similar result. You did actually read the article, right?
