    Or each wedge of the pie needs its own pie, with wedges indicating pilot frequency.  So the X-wing would have its wedge in the main pie, with an associated little pie made of of wedges (one of which is labeled Wedge).

    I am the pilot of Head Trauma. It was an intense tournament, where I went 8-3 versus a variety of different lists. Although I designed it to tackle 2 ship lists as well, I actually started flying this before the phantom nerf, and it was mainly a test to see if ordnance could work, as everyone was (and still is) complaining about how ordnance sucks. This list actually does well against EVERYTHING in the meta right now. I will do a quick synopsis of what I flew against, just to give some of you that doubt it an idea of what the list is capable of.
     
    Round 1 - BBBBZ - Win
    Round 2 - Keyan, Autoblaster Super Dash - Win
    Round 3 - Fat Corran, 2 Autoblaster Ys, Z - Win
    Round 4 - HLC RecSpec Dash NO OUTRIDER, Jake, FCS B - loss (This player went 5-0 in Swiss)
    Round 5 - Chiraneau Soontir - HUGE LOSS!! (Final round of Swiss, I thought I wouldn't make it through)
    Round 6 - Rematch round 4 - Win
    Round 7 - Oicunn, 2x Saber PtL - Win
    Round 8 - Fat Han (EU, 3PO, Pred, MF, Gunner), 3Z - Win
    Round 9 - Fat Han (EU, 3PO, Lone Wolf, MF, Gunner), Outrider Mangler WSF - Win
    Round 10 - Decivader gunner, Oicunn (Pred, Rebel Captive, Isard) - Loss
     
    The loss in the final was a bummer. My opponent deployed directly across from me for a joust, and I honestly thought I had it in the bag before the first turn even started. I did 9 damage to the Decivader on the first round of combat (2nd turn), with 2 of my 4 concussion missiles. I TL'd Oicunn with the other 2 thinking that I would finish the Decivader next turn, or at latest the turn after. Unfortunately that was not the case, as my opponent had prioritized his targets very well, and had hot dice to boot. My green dice (after a day of AMAZING rolling) did fairly well, but not enough, and I think 3 of my ships got 1-shotted over the next couple of turns. I never managed to kill the Decivader (it had 1 hull remaining) and I think I only got 4 or 5 damage on Oicunn. A couple of dice rolls determined the game, and that is okay, because I had a great time! 
     
    Yes, the list smashes 2 ship lists. It also wrecks B's, as Z95's are an amazing ship to counter Bs with. It does fairly well against Brobots because of their low health and reliance on green dice, and the fact that Cracken can pass 2 TLs against anything PS8 or lower, depending on initiative.
     
    I have practiced with this list extensively over the past 3 months, and I can say with confidence that, if flown well, it can beat any list out there. I didn't fly into a single rock on accident on the 2nd day (elimination rounds) and the list requires you to actually think about your maneuvers a few turns in advance in order to succeed, which is very satisfying. 
     
    I will do a comprehensive write-up when I have time, maybe tomorrow. Until then, if you have questions, ask away!

    The best place to check out who's going to these or get updates on schedule changes would be the thread they put up each month for their casual play.  The current one is here. You can always find them due to the helpful and convenient $¥£€ symbols they put in the thread title.  It's how they roll in the South End.

    Such equations are not used anymore by militaries because they don't face each other across a discrete field of battle.  Militaries moved away from the equations because modern warfare could no longer be modeled like....A GAME.  For a game with limited rules and limited actions on a discrete and constrained space, equations are absolutely still a relevant tool to give specific information.
