So I have been loving this game. I have generally been playing rebellion (with 2 x-wings and 1 y-wing) and my friend has been going imperial (2 advanced, 2 tie fighters). I have decimated him in 100pt matches and even in our basic starting 2 games (1 x-wing v 2 tie fighters). Is this the norm?

I don't want him to get discouraged and stop playing as we are trying to build a local community around this game. I didn't know if anyone else has been experiencing the same things or not.

On a side note, I will probably try to get both an imperial and a rebellion set going so I can incorporate the Slave 1 into a set.

First, try switching sides and see what happens.

Second, use a different build for the Empire. Vader plus five TIEs will work better for the Empire.

Drop a TIE advanced and go with more Academy TIEs.

Also try some red on red or blue on blue match ups. As in the exact same 3 x-wings versus the exact same 3 x-wings. Nothing special. If you only have one set use Tie Fighter figures with x-wing stats. Then do some Tie fighter on Tie Fighter exact matches. This is to give you a baseline if its something specific to your player skills, or something specific to your skills with regards to the particular ships.
