What is the X-Wing metagame? Trying to find stock of wave 2?

But seriously, what are they referring to?

Well, not EVERYTHING. I wrote that over a month ago, not knowing what would happen this Regionals Season. For instance, I didn't realize the general consensus at one of my tournies would be that Chewie would be a better pilot than Han. There were quite a few Chewie/Wedge builds at that one, and only 1 Han build. Actually, the #2 and 3 finishers both ran Chewie/Wedge squads.

Thanks for the reference, though.

The speeder bikes will fare about as well against the starfighters as ewoks; in fact, I think that should be the two main, game-changing pieces for Wave 3: speeder bikes and ewok gliders.

themetalbikini.com is still saying it's going to be today...

From an FFG article:
Quote:
Be there Friday evening when we reveal the ships, then attend the X-Wing Q&A on Saturday, May 4th at 2:30pm, where our developers will discuss the four new ships and take questions about their role in X-Wing.

I wonder what their definition of 'evening' is.

Also, they said 'ships' so no turbolaser towers.

I got this from http://swcommonground.com/2013/05/04/wave-3-ships-announced/

"Finally we know. The next wave of X-Wing Miniatures ships will include: TIE Bomber, B-Wing, Lambda-class Shuttle, and the Moldy Crow (an EU ship from Dark Forces).

Finally a sigh of relief. More info will be posted here as it comes in.

Source: Ryan “Picasso” Krippendorf @ FFG’s Star Wars Gaming Experience."

Can't verify the source myself.

Huh, I'll wait for the official news. But it would be strange if the Moldy Crow only comes with Jan Ors and Kyle Katarn.
