I got 10th place out of 38 players at Monroeville, PA. I had 16 points (two full wins, two modified wins and one loss) and the cut to Top 8 was 20 points. Tough to get 20 in a five-round tournament!

As of midnight Eastern, Paul Heaver was still playing a semifinal match. This forum's Osoroshii lost the other semifinal match.

[edit] Oh, my squad, for those who care:

Ibtisam w/ PtL, Engine Upgrade, FCS (37)
Rookie Pilot x 3 (21 x 3)
TOTAL: 100

This is just a quick update for the Bellevue Regional. Gavin Norman Beat Jim Blakley. After 13 hours and 46 competitors, Gavin walked the gauntlet and won it all. Congratulation to him. (More info to come in the next few days.

Osoroshii had roughly this:

Wes Janson w/ Vet Instincts
Wedge w/ Opportunist [edit: and R2 Astro]
Luke w/ Opportunist [edit: and R2-D2]

I was on the top tables all day (much to my surprise!) so I saw Paul Heaver running a bunch of B-Wings, although I didn't closely note what his squad was.

The person a lost to, named Ed, made Top 8 with Howlrunner w/ Stealth Device, Backstabber, three Obsidian Sq. Pilots and two Academies. (Bloody TIE swarms, haha.)[edit: He lost to the eventually winner, Isaac.]

Another Top 16 player, I think his name was Jeff Bizzak (I played against him in the fourth round), had Hobbie w/ a Flechette Torpedo and R3-A2 (is that the new one that stresses an opponent in your firing arc?), Biggs, Green Sq. Pilot w/ PtL, and Gold Sq. Pilot w/ Ion Cannon Turret.

In Monroeville, it's Kris Soehnlin vs Isaac Whitehair playing for the trophy. Kris beat Paul Heaver in what I'll be the first to call an upset =P

Kris is running a Firespray. Don't know what else.

Kris conceded to Isaac about 10 minutes ago. The tournament ran a mere 13 1/2 hours!

From a photo, it looked like Kris had a shuttle, the Firespray and a TIE Fighter, and it looked like Isaac had a TIE Interceptor and at least one TIE Fighter. Sorry I don't have more details. =/

And here I thought the Transport X-wings were the death of Interceptors...

Just not worth it. It's the first couple results, you're just looking for an arguement.

The fact that an Interceptor squad won a 38 person regional is very significant. Feel free to ignore some Store Championship results if they don't fit your ideas about game balance, due to the more local nature of the Store Championships. But these Regional results are a pretty big data point.

 

 I'm honestly surprised, since it seems to fly in the fact of the traditional Interceptor wisdom (ie, use them with Push the Limit). So the Interceptor is still viable, if maybe proven to be a bit more viable than originally thought. I don't think many were using Alphas. All the more respect due to the surprising nature of the squad.

I got smoked by that Tie Swarm in the top 4 of that regionals. Interceptors are fine they punch hard and evade equally as well.

Thanks for the update until we get the full list. We had your squad reported already, unless someone else in the Top 16 had the same exact squad. That clarifies Paul's list and the Winner's list though.
