Firstly, You never challenged me to a game of XWA, which I presume this is as this is an XWA forum, and you can't train someone to be a batter (Tee-Hee) over the internet very well http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/biggrin.gif

sure you can teach them, you just shoot them down until they learn to avoid you

what im worried about is that milkshake "says" he can shoot a tie down from 0.5 k and i have to be about 0.25 and that gives me a few problems when going head on!!

I also think u can train people over the net u just have to teach them meanurves etc...


oh an milkshake i have challenged u to a game of xwa look at the top of this post!

Ok, I'll try:
first step before the battle to see who is batter is the development of quicker hips and the relationship of hip speed to the entire swing. So what you do is place a bat behind the waist, horizontal to the ground, and use a glove as home plate. While holding the ends of the bat in the hands, assume a normal batting stance and watch an imaginary pitch being delivered. Execute a stride and quick turn using the bat to help turn the hips faster. Finish in the proper contact point position. http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/biggrin.gif

Next I'll teach you how to bring your hands first when hitting, improving bat speed and power.

I'm glad to help http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/wink.gif

Note: I am unversed in XWA, but this is how I learned in XvT. If the game is set up similar, you can apply the same idea...

I learned by going to the training menu and going into the 'custom dogfight' scenario. I started with plain TIEs, then worked my way up until I was taking on all the different ships (including the capitol ships) at once. You get blown up a lot at first, but after about a month or so you should be jiggy enough to kick butt on the combat scenerios.

My only specific piece of starfighter advice: think of your shields as another big capacitor for your laser cannon, and keep them topped off when you're fighting. It makes quite a difference... http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/biggrin.gif

Other than that, don't crash into things (unless their shields are reading weaker than yours.)

K_k can help you out, if you ask him nicely enough. He is good at training.

It's okay. I'm sure playing against Milky would be exactly like playing against the computer...

Well I guess I could train you. http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/biggrin.gif

Seriously though, I haven't played XWA or any of the XW series for a good 6 months now. I could still probably lay waste to most of the guys in here though. Just ask some of the other RAL guys who was always punching their ticket. http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/tongue.gif
