I haven't been playing the game very often recently, but when I do, I'm usually playing Ackbar. I don't like big bids, and I find this kind of list can be okay going first or second. Here's my most recent (untested) version. My first version didn't have the GR-75, another one had one less CR90, so I settled for this one that has two CR90s and a GR-75 at the cost of some upgrades and squads. Faction: Rebel Alliance Commander: Admiral Ackbar Points: 400/400
Assault Objective: Most Wanted Defense Objective: Rift Ambush Navigation Objective: Infested Fields
CR90 Corvette A (44 points) - Jainas Light ( 2 points) - Ezra Bridger ( 3 points) - Turbolaser Reroute Circuits ( 7 points) = 56 total ship cost
MC30c Scout Frigate (69 points) - Foresight ( 8 points) - Turbolaser Reroute Circuits ( 7 points) - External Racks ( 4 points) = 88 total ship cost
[ flagship ] Assault Frigate Mark II B (72 points) - Admiral Ackbar ( 38 points) - Intel Officer ( 7 points) - Caitken and Shollan ( 6 points) - Electronic Countermeasures ( 7 points) - Slaved Turrets ( 6 points) = 136 total ship cost
GR-75 Medium Transports (18 points) - Hondo Ohnaka ( 2 points) = 20 total ship cost
CR90 Corvette A (44 points) - Turbolaser Reroute Circuits ( 7 points) = 51 total ship cost
3 A-Wing Squadron ( 33 points) 1 Tycho Celchu ( 16 points) = 49 total squadron cost
@Herr Style I've thought about this suggestion, and I don't think reducing the squadrons just to go from 5 activations to 6 makes sense. If I'm first player then I'm probably just giving my opponent one more pass token. Shara would be nice to have here, but I can't think of a way to put her in without taking away from squads or ship firepower.
If you dropped Ezra or Hondo and changed those 3 generic A-Wings into Shara you would have the points to get another GR75. This would be 6 activations, and I think as you will be out-bid, then makes the other player think about whether they want to go second or not, as you going first means one of your key ships goes last-first.
I've been looking at minimum-upgrade insanity list with Ackbar, 3xAF2B, 2xCR90A, 1xGR75. Squadrons are for people without 21 red dice broadsides! 😁
