    Icareane got a reaction from buddyfett in Why don't we see the 7 or 8 tie swarm?   
    7 Ties crackshot swarms are a thing, maybe you're just not seeing them in your meta.
     
    One just won the Spanish Madrid regional as said by Deroche above and I went top 4 with one at the Jakku Open.
     
    Classic plasma torpedo shot with GC and a focus vs a focused Tie: about a 20% chance of one shot (discounting crits).
    Classic proton torpedo shot with GC and lock vs a focused Tie: about a 25% chance of one shot (discounting crits).
    For both you have about 40% chances of rolling 2 hits. Even if you consider that you take a crit every time, you only have about 1 in 4 chances of drawing a direct hit, so about a 10% added chance of dying to a hit crit.
     
    This gives you an overestimated  30% chance of dying to a plasma and 35% chance of dying to a proton.
     
    Assuming a classic plasma/plasma/proton setup you have about 3.1% chances of loosing 3 ties on the engagement.
    Pretty good betting odds.
     
    I have much better odds with my swarm of 5 crack blacks and 2 academies to destroy a scout before it fires if I can manage a range 1 engagement with the blacks.
     
    Triple scouts are not the big menace to the swarm, palp aces are.

    The Madrid regional was won with:
    Howl, crack
    3 blacks crack
    3 academies.
     
    A very good list that I would probably run if I was not afraid of flying Howl.
     
    @Darkcloak : against lists able to kill Howlrunner before PS4, you're much better off with 1 more Tie. 
    Having one more Tie is also a great help against Aces, as you get one more blocker.
     
    The 6 Tie crackswarm with howl is also very susceptible to blocking by scouts/other swarms.
     
    In the mirror I'm pretty sure that I have at least a 50/50% chance with my 5 crack blacks 2 academies due to blocking. I also have 99 pts so fire before the opposing blacks, thus having pretty good odds of removing Howl before they fire.
     
    @Clanofwolves: check out the video link above, it's got great flying on the swarm player part.

    Usually regional championships in France are not held in stores (I don't know of any with enough space), but by gaming clubs/ independant TOs who provide the venues. Here it was held at the Amiens Youth Hostel and organised by the Cercle des Immortels d'Amiens gaming club. The TOs usually partner with a local shop (or several) for prizes.
    The regionals here are usually called by the city name (here Amiens).

    Around 110 players I think.
    Second day swiss had 38 players.
     
    Mithosiris is correct : winner was De la Torre.
    He did have 2 pt init bid.
     
    Top 8 was:
    2 triple scouts
    1 Dash + Lothal
    1 Crack swarm
    1 Dengar + Guri
    2 Palp aces (1 whisper + inquisitor, the other soontir  + inquisitor)
     
    I think the last one was either a palp aces or triple scouts but I may be mistaken.
     
    I have some pictures and will try to get a report up soon.

    After discussing it with other people, I agree with you, cards are dealt one by one so you'd have to decide after each crit.
