    Earthworm got a reaction from TasteTheRainbow in Sign Up for the Next Season of the X-Wing Vassal League!   
    “As heard on NOVA Squadron Radio!”

    After a successful test season that began with 216 players from around the world, we’re excited to announce that we’re accepting signups for the first full season of the X-Wing Vassal League.

    Further details on how to sign up are at our Reddit page.

    What is this league all about?

    This is a multi tiered league for playing X-wing over the VASSAL online client, and is open to players at every level from Paul Heaver (yes, he’s in it) to the newest beginners.

    If you join, you’ll be in one of our Outer Rim divisions of about 10 new players from the same time zone. You’ll have two and a half months to play each member of your division (plus a player from each of the neighboring divisions) once. There is no set schedule- you can play your games whenever you and your opponent can find a time. This allows you to go on vacation or otherwise have a life during the season.

    If you are one of the top players in your division, you advance to the Inner Rim divisions, where competition is a little tougher, for the next season. The top players from this division advance to the Core Worlds divisions, while the bottom players are relegated back down to the Outer Rim divisions. The overall league is a pyramid, with a wide base of players at the bottom advancing upward towards a small number of seats at the top where the world’s best online X-wing players will be.

    Prizes are available for division winners at all levels, including tokens and templates from our Prize Sponsor, Team Covenant!

    Again, for more details on how to sign up, the structure and rules of the league, how to play on Vassal and more, go to our info page at our Reddit page

    Signups close April 1.

    Friday's Hero of Aturi was brutal. Team work on the deployment (which was VERY different that standard Xwing deploy) was not coordinated well on our part and the AI beat us up for it.
    Then Yesterday I played the best complete tournament I have ever played (at Fantasium's store championship) 4-0 after swiss with no modifieds. Good enough for 2nd highest ranking and only 7 MOV from the leader. And I faced one particular list (5 tie/tie-FO ace swarm) in which I watched to engage him through the rocks and he watched to engage me in the clear. So we danced for 75 minutes and all I killed was a 15 point black sq pilot with crack shot (his only non-named pilot). Winning 15-0 is not typical, but that is what my list does well is get the 5 points without getting much MOV. But I had three other high MOV matches, so it worked out. I did very well in the Semi final and then in the final I was up against Redline with ion Torps and cluster missiles and extra munitions (deadly), Vader in a tie advanced and then a palp shuttle. I did not realize all the ion torps did, and it cost me the game when he ioned all of my K's in one shot on the alpha strike. The only saving grace was sticking 4 stress on Vader and getting him down to one hull and also doudle stressing Redline. Then Vader fed out of range and my first warden died. So my opponent was surprised to see me switch targets to a full health palp shuttle the was hiding behind a rock. The reason I did it was that I realized that if the shuttle had four stress on him, he can't hard turn for four rounds and where he was on the board, he would not be capable of turning around. So Miranda and my other warden got the range 2 and in arc and four TLT shots through rocks netted only 1 damage, but 4 stress tokens. Then I turned back to try to get back at Vader and finish his last hull. Two turns later the 9 health palp shuttle flew itself off the board because of the stress I landed earlier. Unfortunately Redline put himself between me and Vader and slaughtered Miranda with his 2nd ion torp, followed by Cluster missiles. At that point redline had 7 health and knew that my last warden had to avoid Redline and get to Vader to have a chance and my opponent (I'm terrible with names, and it was end of long day) flew well at making sure that my only way to get a shot on Vader also meant having Redline with an opportunity to nail me with his last cluster missile (which is devastating on Redline with the multiple target locks PLUS fire control systems). So anytime that redline had an opportunity to get to me, I'd have to slam out of range and that meant not shooting that turn and hence never getting the Vader shot. When it finally came time for the showdown, the warden was killed by redline before I ever got my shot on Vader. It was a great match. I had a lot of fun but slight disappointment at coming so close on my last opportunity to win a SC this season. And falling JUST short on the last match of the day after flying basically faultless leading up to the final.
    I will probably NOT fly the triple Ks at Game Matrix SC next weekend. I'll come hang out and fly a fun new experiment list for me and leave after swiss rounds to take my mom to Sounders match.

    Earthworm reacted to VaynMaanen in Easiest way to eliminate dial manipulation issues...   
    There's already a rule in place for this issue. Page 5 of the X-Wing FAQ:
    "After the Planning phase, if a player wishes to look at one of his dials, he must inform his opponent first. Manipulating dials after the Planning phase will not be tolerated."
    Ask your TO's to clear this rule up at tournaments, and remind your opponents. If your opponent tells you before he picks his dial up, there's less doubt of his intentions.
    EDIT: This rule has been removed in the new FAQ. I ask EVERYONE to message FFG and implore it to be added back. This simple rule alleviates all instances of any foul play with messing with dials!

    “As heard on NOVA Squadron Radio!”

    After a successful test season that began with 216 players from around the world, we’re excited to announce that we’re accepting signups for the first full season of the X-Wing Vassal League.

    Further details on how to sign up are at our Reddit page.

    What is this league all about?

    This is a multi tiered league for playing X-wing over the VASSAL online client, and is open to players at every level from Paul Heaver (yes, he’s in it) to the newest beginners.

    If you join, you’ll be in one of our Outer Rim divisions of about 10 new players from the same time zone. You’ll have two and a half months to play each member of your division (plus a player from each of the neighboring divisions) once. There is no set schedule- you can play your games whenever you and your opponent can find a time. This allows you to go on vacation or otherwise have a life during the season.

    If you are one of the top players in your division, you advance to the Inner Rim divisions, where competition is a little tougher, for the next season. The top players from this division advance to the Core Worlds divisions, while the bottom players are relegated back down to the Outer Rim divisions. The overall league is a pyramid, with a wide base of players at the bottom advancing upward towards a small number of seats at the top where the world’s best online X-wing players will be.

    Prizes are available for division winners at all levels, including tokens and templates from our Prize Sponsor, Team Covenant!

    Again, for more details on how to sign up, the structure and rules of the league, how to play on Vassal and more, go to our info page at our Reddit page

    Earthworm reacted to thespaceinvader in How to check loaded dice   
    Don't do this. Talk to the player like the grown adult I assume you to be. Don't accuse him, have a conversation that starts 'some of our group is concerned that your dice might have some manufacturing defects'. Then play a few games with them, and actually record the results, it's very easy to get confirmation bias in this situation because you remember the outliers and forget the average results. If it does seem like his dice are weighted or he's worked out an unfair rolling technique, talk to him again, more seriously this time.
    It's a harder row to hoe, but in the long run it will be better to talk like adults and get problems out in the open rather than being duplicitous.

    Earthworm got a reaction from MajorJuggler in Announcement: X-Wing Vassal League, Season Zero   
    We are not actively placing alternates at this time, but are also evaluating how we'll include new players on the fly (one of our goals for the league is for it to be open to players to join as much as possible, so not confining signups to the beginning of seasons is a nice-to-have).  We're not sure how we'll implement this quite yet, but we'll take your information and keep you posted.
     
    Here's what you'll need to do:
     
    1. Send an email to xwingvassalleague@gmail.com with the following information:
    Your reddit handle Your time zone (or the time zone where it's evening when you prefer to play) Your exact challengeboards.net ELO name (please sign up for the board if you don't have one, we'll have to verify this) Your exact name on challonge.com (please sign up if you don't have one, we'll have to verify this)(please also register for Season Zero with that name- it'll get you on our notification list) 2. Hang around the league's Reddit sub.  Check out our weekly newsletter and read through the information about the league and how it works.
     
    3.  Get familiar with Vassal, and play some games.  After you're comfortable, try to play ELO-rated games to build some data for us.  (Players with [ELO] in their Vassal handle, or their league Pod number, eg. [Pod 3] are all ELO players, and may agree to a rated game)
     
    We'll notify you if we have a spot.  Again, we're not sure when we'll be able to add you, or whether we'll have a facility in place to do so before Season 1 starts in March-April, but we'll have your data for whatever comes up, and you'll be definitely in for Season 1.

    Added info for Store championships in Redmond and Olympia (The Gabi's/Olympia data isn't on their website yet and so is "unconfirmed," but my people tell me it is so, and my people are good people, so there...)
     
    Please allow me to lament the uncoordination among the stores- a couple of phone calls or a google chat could have prevented the overlapping we're seeing now-  I went to both Games and Gizmos and Game Matrix last year, and now can go to only one.  Sad.  Same for Gabi's and MOB.
     
    Store owners, next year please let us help connect you together and make as many opportunities for glory as possible!

    Added info for Card Kingdom and cleaned up a few things.  Thanks to Michael A on Puget Sound Star Wars Minis Facebook Group for some info.
     
    I called Fantasium and they said they'd have a date settled within the week, and that they were thinking sometime in March.
     
    As far as Discordia goes, most of their tournaments have been relatively small, so I don't think they're expecting to go too long or have to many rounds.  It's a late night kind of place, as well.  (I blocked off my calendar for most of the next day, if it does go way late).

    If you're really worried about getting meta'd by your opponent, you could enlist a third party as MajorJuggler describes, but i doubt that will be necessary very often.

    I tried to explain that to Game Matrix, but unfortunately it seems that as soon as the decision was made on the date, it was set in stone. It's too bad. It's good for the players that want to win range rulers I suppose, but for those of us who just want to make as many Store Championships in the Puget sound area to get out and meet more players in the region, it's a disappointment to see weekend days with no championships, and other with three going on in the same day.
