Frist games of X-Wing
I took 2 Obsidian Squadron Tie's against my friend with a Red Squadron X-wing and R5-D8 droid.
1st Game: I tried to keep both Tie's together so they could concentrate fire. Went head to head in a flyby , then made hard right hand turns unitl we were facing each other again. He fired at the left hand Tie and it exploded. My remaing Tie fired and I stripped a shield. We both performed the reverse turn (can't remember whats it is called) and he swatted my Tie without getting to fire a shot. Wow, that was fast.
We may have been doing somethings wrong but it was fun.
2nd Game: We played with some asteriods on the field. I split the Tie's up with one heading straight in and the other coming in on the flank. The flanking tie had to navigate the Asteriods and I didn't miss a one. The remaining Tie managed to stay alive for a few turns but eventually a head on pass ended its fight but I did strip his shields and inflict one damage.
Found a couple more things we were doing wrong so next games should go better. Will have to adjust my tactics. Might try a Black Squadron and Academy pilot next.
