So i had 2 games tonight at my semi local gaming store, Darksphere near waterloo, london
I was flying.
Bounty Hunter, rebel captive, seismic charge
Bounty Hunter, recon specialist, seismic charge
Omicron Shuttle, Darth Vader
First game was vs.
Bounty hunter, heavy laser cannon
5 academy tie pilots
The game ended with my wounded recon specialist bounty hunter killing his last tie. Darth did 2 crits, and died, but did distract my opponent. My firesprays managed to pin down his ships and I had a lovely dual drop of seismic charges (I think my opponent forgot I had them, so I felt a bit bad for using them), killing a tie, doing 1 damage to 2 more and 2 damage to his firespray, for stripping the last shield from one of my firesprays
top picks, deployment.
Middle, we tangle
bottom left, bottom firespray is his, boom!
bottom right, his tie avoids bumping my firespray by the smallest of margins
Second game was vs
Luke, swarm tactics
2 rookie pilots
Roark, ion cannon, chewbacca crew.
No pictures for this one, I forgot.
Nice guy, bit new to the game and did make quite a few movement mistakes. I did the same deployment, however my opponent set up opposit my firesprays. So I backed them off but kept the shuttle going forward, which then died for very little damage caused. One firespray's seismic charge destroyed a wounded x wing just before it would have blasted him at ps12 at range 1 with a focus, so I was rather glad about that. Luke was slippery, but shooting at my rebel captive firespray after k turning was a bad choice, lowering his firepower considerbly over several turns. Last shot of the game vs a wounded hwk at range 1, 2 hits 2 crits, boom Had both firesprays slightly wounded at the end.
While they weren't the most skilled opponents, I do really enjoy dual firesprays. I'm not sold on the shuttle, but I think thats due to lack of experience with it. I could swap for 2AP's, but I'd have to use them much better then I do. A shuttle is a nice big tempting target, and when it manages to dodge its all the funnier.
