    World Championship Results 2018

    Thanks man, that's a really nice thing to say. I'm also really happy Simeon won. He's an excellent player and honestly, without taking anything away from him, it felt great seeing "my" list make it all the way.

    Worlds Goldie Awards, have I missed the announcement?

    186th Squadron won our three nominations, which we're stoked about! - Best International Podcast - Best Blog (our guy Phil GC) - Non Meta Performance of the Year (Jesper) Our friend George "Rasta" Dellapina took home Best Mod but missed Best Painted. And fellow brit Simon Green ("First Earth") took Best International Stream. --- Otherwise, notably, Mynocks won Best Podcast and Barons won Best New Podcast.

    FYI it's Alex Birt, not Brit.

    X-Wing Worlds 2018

    The entire room today (1B) was pretty much wall-to-wall Rebels. Mostly 3-ship variants (Lowhhrick, Fenn, Ezra, Miranda, or Poe) with a small handful of Ghost/Fenn.

    How many "fixes" is enough?

    1. "When is this ship going to be fixed?", "Please fix the X-Wing already!", "The game is called X-Wing Miniatures and that ship isn't even good." (some time later) 2. "It's annoying having to purchase the fixes I asked for!", "This is just stupid power creep!", "It can't go on like this!"

    New Ship Mechanics, Hold the Ships

    I would like to see the ability to negate debuffs given to every ship as part of the core rules. What I mean is something like: - You may perform actions when stressed. If you do, suffer 1 damage per stress token. Then receive one additional stress token. - You may choose a maneuver when ioned. If you do, suffer 1 damage per ion token. Do not remove the ion tokens this turn. - You may attack when weapon disabled. If you do, suffer 1 damage per weapon disabled token. Then receive one additional weapon disabled token. Do not remove the weapon disabled tokens this turn. - You may remove all Jam tokens before performing an action. If you do, suffer 1 damage per Jam token removed. Stuff like that.

    The UK System Open Is Underway!

    Those stupid small European metas, man. Sheesh. I'll be in Birmingham for the Open this weekend, along with most of 186th Squadron. Come and say hello if you catch me there!

    Have most of the good players stopped playing?

    Sadly, these forums have been declining in quality for some time. Lack of decent moderation hurts and it's just slowly devolved into memes, arguing and trolling instead of the useful community resource it once was. Bit of a shame really.

    NW England regional stream. ~130 players

    For anybody who is interested, these were the standings at the conclusion of the Swiss rounds. I was running the "Burglarbots". Lost 0 ships in the 6 rounds. Was eventually knocked out by George Dellapina in the Top 8, who went on to win the event. George was running Dash with Lone Wolf, Rey, HLC, Outrider, Engine and Poe with Intensity, BB-8, Primed Thrusters, Black One, Autothrusters. His reasoning (against R2-D2) was that it was simply "just more fun to fly". Since I've been asked about streamed games with my controlbots before, there are videos of my Round 6 match (Lowhhrick, Jess, Miranda) and my Top 16 match (Norra, Heff, Ezra).

    Meat Popsicles

    I'm a huge advocate of Ion + Tractor cannons with Ion Bombs. Had quite a bit of success with this squad over the last few months.
