  1. Congratulations to Nathan! The match was difficult to watch as a spectator, but it was clear to see the brilliant strategies you employed throughout the match. You had cold dice but you never faltered and took the victory. Great game, well earned, congratulations.

    Like watching paint dry

    I had neither ships nor squads, finishing 6th due to all ship matchups in final two rounds. I was out activated and out deployed in every game yet I still did well. Your statements just don't make sense.
  3. I took great personal pleasure in wrecking it. Did I do alright?

  8. That so? I believe some time ago @thecactusman17 was speaking with a very good friend of mine, Cod, about Sloane and Reeiakan in today's game. Cod, borrowing from @Roquax's demo-lite build, designed a 10 squadron list where the only non-fighters are Jendon and Rhymer. His list is the basis for what I'm currently taking to tournaments, with only slight variations to taste, such as Vector. In flying Cod's list, one can use the speed of Imperial fighters to engage and nibble from all angles the Rebel squadrons, or threaten normally untouchable units like a fleeing Yavaris, thereby breaking the Gallant Haven's protective bubble. It's not a play that wins the squadron war, but it provides an opportunity for the Imperial list's other pieces to inflict some damage and turn momentum. While testing the GH lists for Worlds, there was a weakness to a single flotilla with jamming fields and a bunch of flakk. Z-95's, TIE Fighters, you name it. Again, the purpose is to break the GH bubble and delay bombing until the final stages of the game.

    While I'm sure you meant processed, possessed works in this situation. Unlike our neighbours in the south, we have to pay significant premiums per nugget.

    Some say they've crossed the border hungry, in search of inexpensive chicken nuggets.

    Would you be able to post standings after each round?
