  1. ... or so I have been told. I passed on playtesting because of IP issues with FFG, so I never had the pleasure of getting constantly yelled at in the playtest forums.
  2. Help us @phild0, you're our only hope!
  3. So, only Intel on one? Is this correct? Justin Brown (#6 Swiss, 8-1, 1270) Contracted Scout + Mindlink, Plasma Torps, Int. Agent, R4, GC Contracted Scout + Mindlink, Plasma Torps, Ex. Mun., R4, GC Contracted Scout + Mindlink, Proton Torps, Ex. Mun., Boba Fett, R4, GC Also, I would assume that his 2nd EM would be on Boba

  7. Quad TLT won a 108 person Regional a few weeks ago: http://lists.starwarsclubhouse.com/get_tourney_details?tourney_id=2665 It appears that he went 5-1, and then beat: Top 16: Poe / Miranda Top 8: Parattanni (pre-nerf) Top 4: Biggs / Kanan+Zeb Final table: Han / Jake
  8. Very interesting to see that a post-nerf Parattanni still went 8-2, and made the #9 spot.
  9. Thanks, I just got all your Lothal Updates. Oops, yeah I propagated the error -- it has been fixed. To all -- if anything in the Top 8 is wrong from any of the tournaments, please let me know and I will update the OP.
  10. Got a link?
  11. It is almost certainly due to population density and the associated travel costs. From some quick googling and math: United States: 319M people (2014) over 3.797 million mi² = 84 people per square mile Europe: 743M people (2015) over 3.931 million mi² = 189 people per square mile The U.S. population density is 44% of Europe's.
  12. 10 rounds at Tatooine! Wow! What was the player count?
  13. They are recording, but they can't stream because they can't get WiFi. So hopefully we will see the videos uploaded soon. I'll wager that the Parattanni variant has Intel agent on the Scout, for a 1 point bid as Cubs said.
  14. Boots on the ground say 260 players at Syracuse (Naboo)
  15. Yes, I implied triggered + shot at, so it's really the number of times that the free evades get used. Just use a lowball estimate of 2 free shields per ship per game: that's a very reasonable estimate that should set the floor of the ship cost, and results in a JV of 23*(8/6)^0.5 = 26.5. So a Delta is paying 1.5 points for a white K-turn. If a Delta can get 2 extra shields per game via x7 and leverage the K-turn to get extra shots on target about 11% of the time (relative to its target's firing rate), it just hit it's 28 point jousting value. Or it can get 3 extra shields per game and not even need it's white K-turn to hit it's JV. Those are very easy metrics to make, and we haven't even talked about Vessery yet. It was trivial to demonstrate with zero playtesting that the x7 title was overpowered upon release, provided a proper understanding of the fundamentals. You can get more precise numbers with a second order analysis that takes more into account, but a first order off-the-cuff calculation already demonstrates why the title is too good. Changing target priority to shoot "around" the x7 title still helps the Defenders, though, as it results in otherwise non-ideal target priority. This is particularly important now post-FAQ. Jousting value math without focus fire is not trivial, but the above still sets the floor on what the ship price should be.
