My opponent named JD was running an ISD2, Arq, Gonz lifeboat with Screed and a Rhymer ball with one shuttle for relay.
He had a small bid and chose to go second, I picked his fighter ambush objective.
He placed his obstacles spread out along the edge of my deployment zone.
He started by deploying his ISD on the right side of the board with the Arq, and lifeboat screed on the left behind some asteroids.
I deployed Jaina’s Light and Rieekan on the far left knowing that he could fighter ambush Rieekan but then all his fighters would be out of the fight after that. Jaina was deployed over there to go hunt down Screed. All the remaining corvettes were arranged to go after the ISD and Arq. He deployed his fighters to go after Rieekan.
Turn 1 he managed to kill Rieekan, so I had to be very careful with how I flew my corvettes from there on out.
I lost a few corvettes, but managed to kill all of his ships by the end of turn 5. He picked up 3 tokens from the scenario for killing Rieekan.
After this round Chris and Angelo had 9, I had 8, Biggs had 7, and Weston had 6.
My opponent was Biggs and he was running a MC80 Liberty, Pelta, 2 GR75s, and a bunch of red bombers (Xs and Es) along with some named Rebel Squads.
Biggs went first, and picked my Capture the VIP objective.
Biggs set up in the center of the board and I set up spread to the sides of his fleet.
He then used his Pelta and GR75s to act as ablative armor and protect his Liberty from the ramming corvettes.
Biggs started spamming Eng commands on turn 3 on his Liberty and since I had been unable to get to it early because of him protecting it I broke off the attack on turn 5.
I managed a 5 point MOV win for a 6-5 Victory.
Luckily the top table also went 6-5
After this round Chris had 15, I was tied with Angelo and Weston at 14 and Biggs had 12.
My opponent was Angelo and he was running a MC80 Home One, a MC80 Liberty, 6 YT2400s and 2 YT1300s.
He picked to go second, and I picked his advanced gunnery objective knowing he would have to choose his Home One since his Liberty already had gunnery teams on it. This seemed to throw him for a loop that I would pick that objective, but I knew I would only be giving him a single round of double shooting at red range before I rammed him to death as long as everything went to plan.
He placed his Liberty in the middle of the board with all of his fighters and his Home One on the left side of the board. I placed my corvettes mainly stacked against his Home One to make sure I got the bonus 103 points, and two corvettes on the far right to chase his Liberty if it turned to help out Home One.
Turn two I got three double rams off on Home One, he turned the Liberty to help it out. I put My two corvettes on the right chasing right behind it, and turned two other corvettes into the nose of the Liberty to pin it in place.
First activation of turn three I ram Home One to death, and since he is unable to move his Liberty since my corvettes are blocking his movement we decide to call it with him being tabled and me losing the two corvettes that were blocking him.
I ended with 24, Chris ended in second with 23 or 22 with a MOV Tiebreaker, Biggs had 22, and Weston had 17 or 18.
All four of the top places attended the breakfast club, so we kept the streak going on the Armada breakfast.
The venue was great and the event was very smoothly run, also as a bonus on top of everything I won from FFG they also gave me a cookie cake for winning the event.
After I went out to dinner with Stasy and Weston and had a great dinner with some delicious beers while it started to snow outside.
