Opening Post

If you're like me, when you heard about Attack Wing, you were as elated as Picard up there.

Beginners are going to be asking "Who's the best captain in Attack Wing right now?"

The answer is Captain Picard. Beginners should be using him in most of their builds.

One of the fundamental restrictions in the game is the one action rule. You want to try to get around this rule as often as possible within the restrictions of your build. Captain Picard is a 6pt (7 on a non-faction ship) work around for any ship. He allows you to take an extra action, either scan, evade, battlestations or Target Lock. He's like Darth Vader in X-Wing, except that he can be put on any ship in the game. Yeah. He's pretty amazing.

There's not much to say about Picard except that a Beginner is going to find the game a lot easier using the good Captain. While it won't teach you action economy, or movement fundamentals, it will teach you the importance of actions and how they can swing the game.

He's also a good barometer of what to expect out of a 6pt captain, and what you should expect out of lesser captains. I don't expect there to be many captains that will be better.

Anyway, this is just the beginning. I'll keep posting up my thoughts on the game as the weeks go on!
