    European Championship

    Top 4 of the European Championship was: Ben Lee: Yorr, Quickdraw, Inquisitor vs Jack Mooney: Ghost, Fenn Ashok Hemmings: Nym, Miranda vs Wouter Ouwehand: Chirenau, Quickdraw Ben (186th Squadron, UK) and Wouter (Netherlands) went on to play the final, which Ben won. Since there was no streaming, I was sitting by the table taking pictures and doing a turn-by-turn play commentary with photos on Facebook. You can find that commentary on the UK/IRL group (link) or the Mynock Squadron group (link). Lists in the final: Ben: Yorr w/ Palpatine, Collision Quickdraw w/ Expertise, FCS, LWF, Title Inquisitor w/ PTL, Autothrusters, Title Wouter: Chirenau w/ VI, Palpatine, Kylo, Engine Quickdraw w/ VI, Optics, Guidance Chips, Title, FCS, Harpoon

    Carolina Krayts is the best X-Wing podcast

    In other news, Benjamin Lee of the 186th won the 470-player European Championship. Nobody on these forums seem to give a **** outside of a couple of mentions in this thread. Hype.

    Carolina Krayts is the best X-Wing podcast

    You gotta remember, though. Europe is a geographical area of fifty different countries and languages, twenty-eight of which form the EU. It's not one country. It's not one people. One of the many reasons the "tiny european meta" shtick from US-based players rubbed people here the wrong way is that it presumes we're all the same. The Polish meta is very different to the British meta. The Polish community is very different to the British community. And so on, and so forth. Sometimes those distinctions are lost when discussing "europe" as a single entity.

    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.

    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.
