  1. T/F: Are you posting in the Krayt thread? like this isn't a complicated algorithm.
  2. Things I expect to see on listfortress having done well: Everyone gonna be playing some jank.
  3. I think Wave 4 will have a decent impact, but since we don't know the meta we don't know exactly how. Anakin N-1 with Sense on another ship is Excellent because uh, free pre move roll? That right there is a strong play against aces. Hyenas likely will have a role to play as well. I don't think the passive sensor ordinance generics are going to be that big. Plasmas are going to be great against Beef-like things, if those become a part of the meta. But I agree with you, I don't think that there is anything that will jump to the top of the meta because of Wave 4. Bring something good against a variety of things or predict the meta and play against that and then have fun. I'll be at GenCon, and I'd love to meet some of you fine folks and we can panic together!
  4. I mean, the confused react (which is the only "negative" react) farming is possibly the most Krayt thing I can imagine happening so I'm not shocked. The Krayts are pretty much a herd of feral cats with more than a passing interest in statistics, which is confusing in and of itself. Also GenCon is like the wild west for lists, because apparently this last weekend SOS was played on old points too?
  5. @RStan nope, wasn't there. I might be able to get the top 8 info from one of our guys though.
  6. Today I'm panicking that the Europeans don't have a top four match on stream for me to see, and so I'm gonna take the advice and set my panic level to paralysis that my list I was confident in just yesterday is all wrong for GenCon.
  7. I spent ten minutes typing and retyping jokes in poor taste and now I don't even know what to say.
  8. So what's doing well in that SoS? I've got GenCon next week and need to determine my level of panic that the list I just packed is wrong for the meta.
  9. So is it ace meta? I dunno man, been brewing a lot lately and I feel like this is as unknown a meta as I've ever seen.
  10. It's imperial. But I think it's fun. Echo, Duchess, and two generic Inquisitor V1s. I've checked out of politics for now, only casually keeping track of the primaries. I care but my energy that I can devote to it is small for now.
  11. I'm actually pretty happy with my GenCon list.
  12. Guys I'm bringing this back because like, floor rules, going to time, germs, et cetera. Sound off on whatever you are panicking about!
  13. Range control with the blues is key. Also don't be afraid to 5 straight, focus, boost them to get in for blocks even if you aren't getting a shot with it round 1. This means that when you place them on the mat during setup you are already planning on how you are going to maneuver them to set up a 5 straight lane, and ideally multiple options for 5 straight lanes. Turn 0 is really important for your low initiatives, and less important for high init because the latter is going to be reacting to what they do anyway.
  14. Top 8 match at Crossroads, had the game not gone to time I think I would have won vs Smittle who went on to win the whole event. One of the best games I've ever played in X-Wing, he played great and deserved that win. Going to time is just a parameter of the game.
  15. Played this for a while, felt good not great: IG-88A (68) Contraband Cybernetics (3) IG-2000 (1) Ship total: 72 Half Points: 36 Threshold: 4 IG-88D (64) Elusive (3) Contraband Cybernetics (3) IG-2000 (1) Ship total: 71 Half Points: 36 Threshold: 4 L3-37 (47) Jabba the Hutt (6) Rigged Cargo Chute (4) Ship total: 57 Half Points: 29 Threshold: 6 Total: 200 View in Yet Another Squad Builder 2.0: https://raithos.github.io/?f=Scum and Villainy&d=v8ZsZ200Z81XWWWWW92WW151Y84X119WWWWW92WW151Y91XW39WWW96WW&sn=Unnamed Squadron&obs= It has the feeling of being competitive if you are willing to put the time in to learn all the fun stuff. I would also consider dropping the rigged for another Elusive, but it's hard to say. Jabba has pretty solid value, every game I've spent all of his charges. Contraband becomes a truly lite version of Advanced Sensors. IGD is possibly the best IG if you have cybernetics or sensors because they become impossible to block.
