What do you think of this list? Basically I just felt like throwing all of the slipperiest ships onto one team.

The Untouchables

Darth Vader + Stealth Device + Veteran Instincts (or maybe determination, or maybe nothing at all)

Soontir Fel + Push the Limit + Stealth Device

Dark Curse + Stealth Device

Night Beast

I figured these four guys are the hardest to hit. Might make for a silly match of them not getting hit much. Until they do and then get destroyed.

Would this list be survivable?

Do you have ideas for gimmicky lists that are just annoying and fun?

The shuttle fortress is annoying, not fun, but annoying.

That list can survive, but one bad round, and boom , 3 ships are dead.

2x Outer Rim Smuggler + Anti Pursuit Laser
2x Rebel Operative HWK + Ion Cannon Turret

Four turrets, forcing movement into your ORS for APL damage. It just locks you down and kills you slowly...

Also, a gimmicky list that can also be very powerful if flown well:

Captain Kagi — Lambda-Class Shuttle 27
Sensor Jammer 4

Carnor Jax — TIE Interceptor 26
Push the Limit 3
Shield Upgrade 4
Stealth Device 3
Royal Guard TIE 0

Soontir Fel — TIE Interceptor 27
Push the Limit 3
Targeting Computer 2
=99

Forces you to Lock on Kagi, while Jax prevents you from using Focus/Evade while he and Soontir beat down on you. If done right, the opponent should get basically no actions while your interceptors tear into them without fear and the shuttle supports from range 2-3.

That's a really annoying list which, to me, has nothing to do with dogfighting in the Star Wars universe. But I also hated Blue back when I played Magic:tG.

This'll have to wait for Phantoms, but:

Echo + Advanced Cloaking Device + Fire Control System (36)
Lt. Lorrir + Royal Guard TIE + Targeting Computer + Stealth Device (28)
Darth Vader + Push the Limit + Engine Upgrade (36)

Just try and predict where these guys are going to move!

I'd drop Lorrir's Targeting Computer, give Echo a Veteran Instinct, and swap Vader's PtL for Daredevil. Ah... "Darevader." I think that's the only ship I've ever faced where I literally NEVER had him in my TIE Swarm's firing arcs for an entire match.

Note that Darevader is the only ship that can "Boost + Uber-boost." No ship can Barrel Roll twice (Expert Handling was errata'd to prevent this) - except for the new Phantom if you start the turn cloaked, since it can decloak and then Barrel Roll either after it maneuvers or before via Advanced Sensors - and no ship can Boost twice. But Vader alone can Boost and then Daredevil as his second action (because it isn't a "free Boost action")... which gives him pretty crazy options when you factor in that he can also Barrel Roll instead if that's better for him; e.g. he can Barrel Roll then Boost, Boost then Barrel Roll, Boost then Daredevil, or Barrel Roll then Daredevil... in any combination of directions. That's a LOT of possibilities!

I played a list last night that was super annoying for my opponent, though I didn't intend for it to be.

Wes Janson + VI
Wedge + Opportunist
Dutch + R2-D6 + DtF + shield upgrade

Basically, Wes shoots first, stripping away tokens. Wedge cleans up with TL, focus, and an extra attack die. Dutch soaks crits with 9 hp.

Ate a ship every round.

There's room for an ion turret on Dutch, but I was trying out flechette torpedoes (which are also fun, and annoying).
