Hi All,

I went to an Escalation tournament this weekend at a local gaming venue, The Sanctuary Gaming. It was only a small turn out but much fun was had by all.

I wrote a blog post about my list and the thoughts behind it but I also cover them briefly in the video.

G1 1 is up and the rest will be following over the next week or so.

Let me know what you would like to see done differently next time.

Cheers
Ben

Really cool to see those two ships (which are apparently on top of the current Meta) going head to head.   Thanks for posting!

So are the other players with 2-0 scores looking like they have something?


This is one of the main reasons Xwing is awesome! http://community.fan...ake-long/page-4

Well played.  

 

I can't help but think that 6 measly points worth of bombs on those Tie Bombers would have changed the game.  I certainly saw one turn where bombs would have been just amazing.

 

Of course, you would have been playing differently if you knew they were toting bombs.  Still, I think by forcing you think about how close you wanted to get with the Z95s might have saved him some grief and extended the game.

I think this game could be a lot of fun with hidden upgrades :)  As it was I didn't have to worry about bombs.  

 

Next game will be up next week sometime.
