I ran four rebels.
Jan Ors with Ion Cannon Turret
Wedge with Push the Limit, R2,
I placed 6th or so for some reason in a fourteen man tournament.
Round one I drew an Imperial player running Swarm Tactics Howlrunner, Dark Curse, and 5 Academy Ties I believe.
I won the game on the opening joust when I caught Howl Runner out of position he'd accidently placed them at the back of the 7 tie double column instead of in the middle so not many buffs from howlrunner happened. He hard turned towards the board edge to pin down my wedge and Jan Ors. Jan walked dark curse off the board, the rest of my force killed howl and 2 ties for biggs and got my shields scorched.
Time was called I had Wedge and Bandit left and he had 2 academy ties. I was awarded a "Modified Win" for 3 points which doesn't show up in the tournament rules.
Round 2 I drew an Imperial player who had Echo with upgrades, and 5 academy ties.
He set up a 2x2 with one trailer tie and then echo on the one flank. I set up in a line to oppose him. On turn three, during movement phase I guessed that he was going to knife in Echo on my right edge of my line. Bandit and biggs try to slow roll the joust but Jan and Wedge turn into Echo. I have initative and Echo dies before he can do anything. I lose biggs but take out a single academy pilot, because the tie formation went from beyond range 3 to 5 forward and in my lap.
We skirmish it out and I end the game with Wedge and Bandit, and he has two mangled ties desperately trying to escape. I am awarded another "Modified Win" for 3 points.
Last Round, I draw an Imperial player playing Boba Fett with Predator, Howl Runner with swarm tactics, and 1 academy, and 2 obsidian ties I think.
He sets up in this weird skirmish line with two ties on either side and bobba in the middle. I set up in a 2 by 2 box. The second turn I realize I botched my manuvers and bump everyone of my own guys because I screwed up my iniative order. My opponent in the meantime has weaved his entire group through the astroids and has them relatively in range of me except for 2 ties that are just out on the far edge. Wedge pots Howl Runner in a one shot, and nobody else manages anything in the opening volley. Terrible piloting decisions on part leave me without orders over and over again, but my opponents dice are ice so it doesn't matter. Wedge is vaporizing a tie a turn without any help from the rest of my squad.
Game ends with everyone on my side alive against boba Fett heavily damaged. I was awarded a "modified win" and 3 points for like 6 or 7th place over all.
I had fun and think that my squadron was fun to play and I enjoyed playing an ion cannon turreted hawk greatly even if it only killed Dark Curse by walking him off the board and then the final hit on the uncloaked phantom. Not sure if it was worth playing but it was good I think.
Should I have placed better? From the way I read the tournament rules on FFG's page I should of had 3 wins and 15 points. Which should of left me something like top 3 in a 14 man 3 round tournament?
