  1. Last year at Euros it was announced that they reserved the venue for two years, and that they're open to it moving around from then on.
  2. When I finally got around to using my Wave X ships last year, I paired Stridan (Hux/Systems Officer/Advanced Sensors) with three PS1 Strikers. Those things are non-trivial to take down when they have both focus and evade tokens.
  3. A lot of the pilot cards have had horrible images (basically the @ficklegreendice posted, but also the Luke from nationals), so I simultaneously hope and fear that a horrid card will come out for a pilot I like. I'm waiting on Carnor Jax, Ryad and Thweek, but wouldn't be unhappy with Nym, Miranda or Vessery as they'd be useful pilots. Amongst the useful upgrades to release alt-art forms of would be Palpatine, juke, expertise and maybe pattern analyzer. Acrylic condition tokens of every type. A baggie with one of each of the following would be amazing: harpooned, I'll show you the dark side, a score to settle, fanatical devotion and mimicked/shadowed. FFG should just release baggies of 5 condition tokens every time there are 5 more conditions out. Also, tokens to track the usage of the Emperor or C-3PO would also be handy as long as they aren't as comically large and unwieldy as Agent Kallus' token.
  4. Quadruple Auzitucks with Wookiee Commandos seems like it should be on this list, despite how much I dislike facing them.
  5. I've seen some decent success (5-1 in two 3-round tournaments) with the following: Scimitar Squadron Pilot — TIE Bomber 16 Fleet Officer 3 Tactician 2 Twin Ion Engine Mk. II 1 TIE Shuttle 0 Ship Total: 22 First Order Test Pilot — TIE Silencer 29 Push the Limit 3 Fire-Control System 2 Threat Tracker 3 Autothrusters 2 Ship Total: 39 First Order Test Pilot — TIE Silencer 29 Push the Limit 3 Fire-Control System 2 Threat Tracker 3 Autothrusters 2 Ship Total: 39 Against lower PS pilots these things are pretty hard to catch, even when blocked (assuming you have arc) as you can shoot, get a lock, spend it and boost/BR out of the way or reposition + focus for defense. Against higher PS pilots the strategy is to go in with focus tokens from the bomber, get a TL if you expect them to get into range 1-2 to try to arc dodge them in the combat phase, or just double up on focus tokens at range 3. Then it becomes a game of blocking the enemy with one ship and then being able to arc dodge and shoot at it with that same blocker. If the TL is from the previous turn's FCS and you just focus before blocking, you can spend the TL to reposition (usually a BR out of arc) and use PtL to get the lock back for fully modded attack dice. I ruined a few Fenn/VCX lists with this list and might be taking it to the Krakow Open next weekend if I'm feeling brave/suicidal enough.
  6. I don't understand, supposedly the most egregious use of coordinate is to let a VCX boost at ps11, but Engine Upgrade adds boost to a ship's action bar so your nerf doesn't help there. Is there another interaction that you had in mind?
  7. The top 8 of the Bilbao regional will be starting in about 40 minutes: https://www.twitch.tv/guarida_tabletop
  8. Alberto Diaz. As far as I know, he doesn't have any titles to his name above the Store Championship level, at least in X-Wing, but he's a regular in the top cuts. In Barcelona he was the runner-up in the 2015 regional (Han/Corran), made top 8 in the 2017 regional (Corran/VCX/Prototype), and now top 4 in the 2018 regional (5 strikers). He also made top 8 in the Valencia regional (Thweek/Fenn/Teroch) two weeks ago.
  9. I just wanted to share that a 5-striker list made top 4 in the regional I helped organize last weekend (Barcelona - 123 players), and I'm going to try taking the list to a regional in ten days. I've flown lists with 3 and 4 strikers a few months back, so going up to 5 shouldn't be too difficult for me... I hope =).
  10. Hyperwave comm scanner alongside two juking TIE/SFs Carnor Jax with a shield upgrade Sensor jammer (in the days before expertise) on phantoms and shuttles Expert handling on Kylo (Upsilon pilot) and scum Kath (with EI and IR) Threat tracker on PtL PS6 Silencers Boshek and Daredevil on a double-bumping Oicunn R7-T1 on Wedge: my first list had Wedge with VI and the droid alongside Jan Ors pilot... I crushed sooooo many Soontirs and Whispers with him. Attanni mindlink before the Protectorate Starfighter or Shadowcaster were released (Manaroo/Guri/Kaato for the win!)
  11. I once went 4-0 at a tournament with Thweek/timewalk asajj/ion sunny, and 3-0 and 3-1 at two others with Thweek/Nym/tlt Y. I believe that I lost him twice in those 11 games, and generally managed to kill everything else (minus in my loss). I always chose to move last with Thweek, except when I faced Vader/QD/HLC Nu where I decided to copy Vader's ability. Boost + barrel roll with the 1-bank template is the most amazing thing ever, even with a measly PS4. I actually retired him after the 4-0 tournament as I realized that I would never again even approach the greatness that is Thweek with Vader's ability . A friend of mine recently took Thweek/Teroch/Fenn to the top 8 of a 62-player regional, and another got Thweek/Guri/Fenn to the top 8 of a 123-player regional. Anyway, it's a really fun ability that can be amazing, but as others have said, it's usually just balanced. Just make sure that you build your list to go to a maximum of 98 points so that you move last.
  12. What are the odds? Today Poetensity (with BB8 and CR)/Dash won the Barcelona regional (123 players) as well.
  13. Bandit Squadron Pilot — Z-95 Headhunter 12 Cruise Missiles 3 Guidance Chips 0 Ship Total: 15 Miranda Doni — K-Wing 29 Twin Laser Turret 6 Harpoon Missiles 4 C-3PO 3 Long-Range Scanners 0 Ship Total: 42 Captain Nym (Rebel) — Scurrg H-6 Bomber 30 Trick Shot 0 Twin Laser Turret 6 Harpoon Missiles 4 Bomblet Generator 3 Collision Detector 0 "Genius" 0 Long-Range Scanners 0 Havoc 0 Ship Total: 43
  14. The best part about Juan's list is that the Dash/Poe is that it was Poetensity with Comm Relay. Edit: Ninja'd with the kid's list, so I'll add some different details Top 4 - 5 strikers and Boba/Asajj Top 8 - Nym/Miranda/Bandit (the only Nym in the top cut, and it had trickshot), Thweek/Guri/Fenn, 2 scurrg/kimogila and Miranda/Fenn/Low
  15. Edit: double post with a post in the middle somehow....
