This was posted on an X-Wing Miniatures Unofficial Fan Facebook page yesterday. Sounds like a playtester maybe...

"Gammer Squadron Pilot"?

Also, interesting that Kyle Katarn appears above Jan Ors despite their pilot skills.

*edit* And I find the lack of Captain Kagi disturbing.

Well Major Rhymer flew Scimitar 1 in the EU during the Battle of Endor, and Roark Garnet owned the Moldy Crow at one point in time. So if the list is not legit, they atleast did their legwork.

Edit:
Actually I think Major Rhymer came from the Decipher CCG.

A quote from their Facebook page.

All the info we have is from play testing, that's why we have not released the upgrades yet, but some of them are game changing! Avenger 2

Their response when I asked where they got the info.

Quote:
I have a contact who was a Wave 3 play tester. He was kind enough to tell me some inside info, it's only play test info, so some pilots may be different, I'd say 80-90% of these names are correct.

Is there any reason not to?

There have to be playtesters out there, wanting to spill some beans

I thought game testers were under some sort of non-disclosure deal?

But still - Nera Dantels! Excellent!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They usually have to sign an Non Disclosure Agreement, true. But with the official anouncement having been made by FFG, they are feeling more secure to share minor parts and pieces now, without having to fear legal retribution.

Also, walking that thin line of teasing while not revealing material notz quite guarded by the NDA seems to be sport for some playtesters

Looks like they pulled the post this was on. Maybe there was a non-disclosure problem.
