So I was browsing a site that has a list of cards, and I saw C-3PO...



I wonder If I put him on a B-Wing (or Y-Wing, if one of their new cards in Scum & Villainy gives them a passenger slot I can't remember if there was one leaked for that or not) and say "0", to basically always get an evade...

Asshole move?

C3PO is one of the essential components of Fat Han/Chewie, used exactly in the way you described (guess zero and get a guaranteed evade). Paired with the MF title, you get 2 guaranteed evades on a ship which is difficult to kill fast, which is excellent. Add to that the consistent damage the turret will be doing to enemy ships, and you have one deadly ship.

62 Han w/ C3PO + MF + Engine + Gunner + Predator
58 Chewie w/ C3PO + MF + Engine + Gunner + Predator

Also this ships becomes harder to beat, the less firepower the opponent has, since you can effectively ignore the first 2 hit results. So if you pick off a few of your opponent's ships early, it can be nigh impossible for them to kill fat Han/Chewie.

A B-wing doesn't benefit as much from C3PO as the Falcon because it has less of a HP reserve, and doesn't have the MF title to pair with. Though it's still a decent combo for expensive B-wings you want to keep alive, like Keyan or Ibistan. IMO if you're set on taking a defensive crew card on a B-wing the Chewie card is a better buy on the B-wing than C3PO.

When I was a young boy, I dreamed of being a baseball...

Apparently they are arriving back into stock stateside now and should be over here soonish

All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

Is the problem that it's French, or that you set your maximum rather higher than you're comfortable with after a few minutes of rational thought?

90% of people think they are above average.

Statistically Improbable. Psychologically Inevitable.

A little from Column A, a little from Column B......

Yeah, it says it's French at the bottom of the description, and the picture isn't all that clear. *le sigh*
