Ships we need....

Love that Resistance and FO are getting taunting tanks but there's a few more ships we need to diversify Fleets. It's so stale and boring with the current meta being so OP.
Here's a few ideas:
B-wing with pilot. Glass cannon that has high speed, high evasion, and powerful attacks.
A-wing with pilot. High speed, decent armor and evasion, maybe not a heavy hitter.
Tie Defender. Enough said!
Separatist Droid TriFighter or HMP gunship
Naboo N-1 Starfighter
#1 pick.... Luke's X-Wing!!!
There's a plethora of more ships but those are a few we could start with. Special pilots don't have to be that great as characters (same caliber as (esistance Pilot, Tie pilots)
Fleets has a lot of potential. Awesome that we have the Executor but that shouldn't be the only fleet that's competitive. Mace, Holdo, Tarkin, Hux....Not great or competitive command ships. Even Ackbar and Thrawn have gone down in usefulness. If you add more ships we'll play fleets more.

    Be careful what you wish for. SInce they have omega, the Naboo starfighter would likely comes with 8 year old anakin....his basic is saying 'yippee!' and having all opponents cringe in pain for 1 turn.

    And while we're at it, we already have Bodhi Rook as a toon WITHOUT A SHIP? He's sitting right there. Give him that imperial command shuttle!

    We already have an Imperial Shuttle w/ Palp/RoyGd for crew.

    I think Body was a Cargo pilot wasn't he?

    Regardless there are some really basic options that need to be considered for the factions with Multiple Cap Ships.


    Empire:
    TIE Interceptor
    TIE Defender
    TIE Advanced V1 (Inquisitor Model)
    TIE Heavy
    Skipray Blast Boat


    Galactic Republic
    Torrent Fighter
    V-Wing
    Clone Z-Headhunter
    Jedi Fighters for various GR Jedi.


    The Rebels are already sitting at 8 Fighters for 1 Capital Ship so as much as I'd like them, I don't think its needed unless we get another Rebel Cap Ship.


    Resistance could use a crewless-B-Wing / A-Wing to flesh out that fleet.
    Maybe Leia's shuttle craft.


    To me the best option with FO is still to give Finalizer some Synergy w/ Sith ships ala "Final Order"
    The SE duo would fill out the faction just fine if needed.

    The A-wing and B-wing you describe seem completely opposite of what they are to me.

    B-wing is not fragile or highly agile. A heavy hitter for sure, but maybe not a taunt.

    A-wing is super fragile and would be the one for high evasion. I'd make A-wing a support that buffs the fleet with maybe foresight to show its interceptor roots, running interference for the team. Not a heavy hitter though, but concussion missiles might be another way to support the fleet with some debuffs.

    CLS(or farmboy since it was his era) and R2 pilots
    Trench run special ability can push back enemy capital ship ultimate ability (doubled for deathstar)

    Starting to think everyone who works at CG is 15 years old, never seen original trilogy and only seen the cartoon series!

    Could even have cross faction ships like Tantive IV covering rebel and resistance, and how we dont have a hammerhead ingame yet is almost as amazing as the none appearance of Jabba the Hutt

    It is shocking that Red Five, one of the top three iconic star wars ships ever, has not been added to the game after 6 years.

    It is when you consider that ships is an afterthought to CG. Perhaps they are saving it for a “break glass in case of emergency” type JKL thing. I don’t even think CG know what it has planned for ships.

    Wow. That is brilliant.
    Its so easy to do (instead of a whole sith remainder fleet) and makes sense.

    Totally different imperial shuttle used in Rogue One though. Zeta-class heavy Cargo Shuttle.

    For TIE Defender we would need Vult Skerris too and i would be absolutely happy about more Empire support

    So I got to thinking again about what is needed in game.

    47 Fighters for 9 Cap Ships = 5.22 ships per Fleet

    Lets see now this lays out by faction

    Negotiator + 7
    Ani-ETA, BTL-Ywing, Umbaran
    Ahsoka-ETA, Rex-ARC, Sgt-ARC, Plo-JSF

    Home One + 7
    Han-MilFal, Biggs Xwing, Rebel Ywing
    Wedge-Xwing, Cas-Uwing, Bist-Uwing, Phant-2

    Executrix + 7
    TIE-Adv-x1, TIE-Bomber, Imp-TIE
    Emp Shuttle, Gauntlet, TIE-Reaper, TIE-Interceptor-Proto

    Executor + 5
    HoundsTooth, RazorCrest, XanaduBlood
    Slave-1, IG-2000

    Malevolence + 5
    Hyena, Vulture, Sun-GSF
    Spy-GSF, Soldr-GSF

    Finalizer + 5
    TIE-Silencer, Cmd Shuttle, TIE-Esch
    FO TIE, FO SF TIE

    Raddus + 4
    Rey-MilFal, StarFort Poe X-Wing
    Rest-Xwing

    Endurance + 4
    Consular-JSF, Lando-MilFal, Ghost
    Ebon Hawk

    Chimera + 3
    SE-Fighter, SE-Bomber, Scimitar

    ******************

    Lets face it, those last 2 fleets are a joke.
    They can't even clear a bad attack that only killed a couple ships.

    And there are rumors of a 10th cap ship ?!?!?!

    *******************

    Instead how about we add a dozen+ new ships:

    We can even make it some really easy to use ships that we either already have graphics for &/or are seen in major canon SW productions.


    Empire:
    Return of the Jedi - TIE-Interceptor (Crewless - Attacker)
    Rebels - TIE-Advanced-v1 (Sister/Brother/Grand Inquisitor - Support)
    Rebels - TIE-Defender (Crewless - Tank)
    SOLO - TIE-Heavy (Crewless - Attacker)

    Galactic Republic:
    Phantom Menace - Naboo Fighter (Crewless - Attacker)
    Clone Wars - V-Wing (Crewless - Attacker)
    Clone Wars - Torrent V-19 (Crewless - Attacker)
    Clone Wars - Z95 Headhunter (Crewless - Tank/Support)
    Revenge Of The Sith - ARC-170 (ARC Trooper - Tank)
    Clone Wars/BadBatch - Marauder (Tech, Hunter, & Wrecker - Tank/Support)

    First Order (Sith):
    Rise of the Skywalker - TIE-Dagger (Crewless - Attacker OR Sith/Red Trooper)

    Resistance:
    Rise of the Skywalker - Rest A-Wing (Crewless - Attacker)
    Rise of the Skywalker - Rest B-Wing (Crewless - Support)
    Rise of the Skywalker - Rest Y-Wing (Crewless - Tank)


    Separatists:
    Revenge Of The Sith - Tri-Fighter (Crewless - Attacker)


    The above additions allow for full fleets for Executrix & Chimera as a Pure Empire fleet & a Mixed Empire/Inquisitor/Sith fleet
    Allows the Republic to fill out 2 fleets for Negotiator/Endurance & 1 for Resistance
    Brings Separatists & FO up to 6 each with room to expand or use extra ships.
    EbonHawk/Lando could go with the BHs.
    A spare Rebel over to Resistance, etc etc.


    ******************

    I'd love a 2nd Rebel fleet built around the Rogue-1 capital ship OR the Rebel HQ ship from before Home One, Liberty, I think?
    Add Red-5-Xwing, A-wing, B-Wing, & Kyle's Ship
    Give that one some direct synergy w/ the Rogue-1, Phoenix, & A-Wing/Y-Wing designs.
    Leave the X-Wings, B-Wing, Falcon, & Kyle w/ Home-1

    But really, that is more a "Want" where the top list is a "NEED"

    No more crewless ships, they have crews in the films/shows, so use them

    Imperial Tie Pilot #2-3-4-5 doesn't sound like fun characters to me.

    I'm fine w/ Crewless ships mixed in with Crewed ships.

    It eases the gear crunch & apparently was easier to design since the stats are all in the ship & not compensating for all the stuff that affects a ship when it has a live pilot w/ mods, gear, & ability levels.

    FYI, we asked for more crewless ships so that we didn't have to level up more, otherwise useless, pilots.

    In fact a half dozen more crewless ships is exactly what we need right now.

    LMAO, LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL.

    THIS is what you think the game need?
    A whopping 8 more fighters.
    And THREE new Cap Ships when we don't have fighters for them as it is?

    I wonder if there's a new rebel ship or rebel fleet update coming with Akbar, Wedge, and his X Wing being part of the calender rewards this month.
