  14. LordVogl - I ran this list last weekend at a store championship and took 2nd place out of 15 players in 4 rounds. For the build, the only difference was adding Adaptability (+1) to give me a small edge over other swarms and builds of three large-base ships. Here's some observations based upon how I fly A-Wings: - Obstacle set-up was actually pretty critical - helped identify lanes for both fire and maneuver; e.g., setting up an arrow pointed towards your end was very effective - Speed (surprise) was key - engage early before the opponent has time to set up a pincer move or mass their firepower on you - Keep in formation for as long as possible - I used a modified "box" formation to keep the A-Wings together with proper spacing to make turns easier - Isolate a single ship, as much as possible, and focus your fire - I was able to take out a single Jumpmaster almost every turn (there were many in play that day...) - Be patient with Crackshot - wait for the right moment when you do have a focused attack opportunity - its very hard for a single ship to be that lucky against even the minimal 10 dice attack - Do your Alpha strike and then bug-out to a position that will give you another attack run on a single ship - don't push your luck on a formation of 2 or more other ships - Autothrusters were critical - I'm never going to leave the hangar without them - saved my bacon - Maneuver, maneuver, maneuver - use the obstacles to your advantage - hide around them, speed around them, make the opponent chase you through those fields and then tell them the odds of survival - Be patient - wait for the right moment even if that means speeding away at 5, boosting, and then making a tight turn to get everyone back into action at the same time and place - Know your opponents ship and their possible moves - anticipate, block, set up kill boxes, etc. I've been playing A-Wings for a long time now and it felt good to put a little sting in some big ships, stress builds, TLTs, and even T-70s.
  15. Last event for the Winter league will occur on Wednesday, March 30th. All league prizes will be awarded at the end of this event. First event of the Spring league will occur on Wednesday, April 13th. For more information on the events, check out the Meetup site. http://www.meetup.com/Metro-East-Gamers/
