Hey all. The tournament was on Saturday, and I did reasonably well, 3 wins 3 losses. I ended up modifying the list and ran with;
Wedge Antilles — X-Wing
Ship Total: 52
Thane Kyrell — X-Wing
Ship Total: 48
“Dutch” Vander — Y-Wing
Ship Total: 54
Gold Squadron Veteran — Y-Wing
Ship Total: 46
Trick shot is situational, but GLORIOUS when it comes off. 5 dice Proton torps? Yes please! 1st round I had a 4 dice primary weapon shot!
PS4 on Dutch isn't enough to reliably push forward and pass locks for torpedoes. Lots of high PS ships in the tourney, and he got wiped before firing one game. When it does work I usually have the Gold with a focus and target lock, pretty effective
Wedge hits hard, but is fragile.
Thane's ability is nice, but too situational. He'd be a terror to any larger ships, but I didn't face anything bigger than a U Wing.
Still, I never found myself feeling totally outmatched list wise, so I'd rate this as 2nd tier. A better player than me would probably get more out of it
