Game Parlor in Chantilly, VA ran a Tourney today, thank you to Chris our TO.
3 rounds, 60 minute games
I took the flying aces.
Vader, Stealth Device and Concussion Missiles
Soontir Fell, Stealth Device and Push the Limit
Turr Phennir, Stealth Device and Push the Limit
I faced my friend Ron;
Bounty Hunter, Gunner and Heavy laser Cannon
Vader, Homing Missiles
Tempest Squadron Pilot
The Aces just out manuvered Ron's list, using Evade and Focus actions on my ships, followed by green moves to drop stress I just tucked in and blasted away, staying mainly beyond his fire arcs.
Both Vader and the Bounty Hunter went down to NO hits at all to my ships.
Win by 79pts.
Faced another regular at the shop.
I don't have his exact list, but it was Han, Chewie and Luke Falcon with other bits and loaded out Wedge.
Wedge went down in the second round to a full load from my three ships.
Han lasted 3 more turns.
I lost 1 Hull point.
100 pt win
This was against my friend Tim. (Tim regularly stomps me :-) )
2 x Rookie Pilots.
Wedge went down early, then he took out Soontir, I managed to smoke Garven next and then we ran out of time. We did some serious manuvering this game. I got a 25 pt win.
This gave me 13 points from 15 and the tourney win.
The ability of this list to take 2 actions a turn and then easily shed stress meant that I always had 4 defense dice base plus Focus plus Evade if I was in fire arcs. If I was out of arcs, more options opened up.
I have to say, this list is REAL filthy and will only see the light of day at Tourney
Thx to my opponents for great games.
