    What's an efficient list right now? 4B1Z? Dreaswarm? Jonus and friends?

    What's all this love for Sabine? I get she's very fun to play, but isn't she a bit too squishy to be actually good? Obviously she can enter combat with focus evade but in many cases this only means she will soak 2 attacks before bitting the dust, often without even having a chance to shoot. Isn't she a bit too expansive for just being a "biggs" who can sometimes double as a blocker? I think there's might be room for a successful 2 ships Rebel lists, it depends on how hard seismic trajectory counters Han and how common they are. Han Solo is the closest 1.0 thing in the game (maybe tied with Boba, but Han ps6 repositioning&arc moving to put him ahead in that particular race) , but he feels fair (or at least that's what my opponents said so far)

    Oh I didn't know Alex was @gennataos , congrats for your win as I said your semifinal game was very nice to watch! I'm a bit out of the loop with the new names, what are Hyperspaces store championships? What's the format?

    I think they are just different, at least compared to what players were used to play before, but aren't bad. I feel both Luke/Wedge + 3Bs (Wedge might be the best call if Whisper and Boba keeps being so common) and Luke+Wedge (both with proton) + support (braylen, hawks, dutch, thane, whatever) are solid archetypes that can face on equal footing most of the lists in those cuts. The more time it passes, the more I value Wedge (despite Luke probably being the funniest thing in 2.0). Also Quadjumper are nuts. I'm starting to be worried by tractor beam as an action, let's see how it goes

    I managed only to watch part of the Semifinal, but I have to say I was impressed by Alex Smittle flying at the crossroad classic: he had a great game and despite having some very lackluster dice rolls. I found those top 16 lists, I think Dion compiled them. As I said I wasn't watching so I suppose the only rebel player who was in the cut had to drop and made place for Alex https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/15q6QeN-QSrbIqzpSKcnCCAeYCMRtrt9vroeFntOJnvw/edit#gid=0 Echo Jonus 2xBomber Redline Whisper 3xBomber (no ordnance) Boba IG-A Boba Palob 4LOM Whisper Jonus 3xBomber Soontir Whisper 2xBomber Redline Whisper Vermeil Drea L337 3xQuad 2xZ Echo 4x Bombers Redline Whisper Duchess Vader Redline Duchess Boba Fenn Landoshuttle Redline Whisper Soontir Rexler Whisper Soontir Whisper Duchess Wampa Lamba Fenn Kavil Quad * 11 Imperials 5 Scums Whisper was by far the most common pilot: 8 lists had her. Redline and the generic bomber were in 4 lists. 3 Bobas, 3 Soontirs. More interesting for @Boom Owlmight be that there were 4 5+ ships lists and other 2 with 4 ships. In this weekend tournament, rebel didn't seem to have fared well.

    TOP 16 SPAGNA Wedge Luke Sabine AP5 Teroch Palob 4Lom Quad Soontir Redline Deathrain TIE Swarm 6 pezzi Boba Guri Boba Palob 4LOM Soontir Whisper Deathrain Deathrain Jonus 3xBomber Boba Guri L337 Wedge Luke Uwing TIE Swarm 6 pezzi Boba Guri Soontir Redline Deathrain Wedge Luke Braylen Foslo Jendon 2xGunboat Soontir Whisper Redline I gathered the data from what I saw on the stream, so take it with a grain of salt. Assuming I got it right, there are 3 Rebels, 5 Scum and 8 Imperials. All 3 rebels play both Luke and Wedge. Only 1 Scum isn't playing Boba. No Vader pilot (not even in the top 32! It seems the Spanish aren't liking him), also at least two of those Lukes weren't using SupNat. Soontir is the most common imperial pilot with 4 appearences. Redline and Deathrain are both present in 3 lists, in two cases they are together. There are 4 5+ ships lists, all are imperials: 2 TIE Swarms and 2 "bombers" swarms. No Kagi. I have no idea who Foslo is.

    I love Spanish translations! I need to get an Aullador howlrunner Kagi is a nice answer to proton Torpedoes and probably vader too

    Oh but I totally agree with you that nationality has nothing to do with performance, I was speaking of place or meta where someone get their usual play time and that's definitely matter. Of course it's not the only thing that matters and it's not even the most important one, but dismissing it as a non-factor doesn't make much sense either. If I get to play every given Sundays with people who had made the cut in every SoS they went to I expect to have a better training than playing with people who don't have the same experience, at least on average. And in the UK there's a crazy amount of players Is that so weird? You guys have always taken pride on having an analytical approach, I started the discussion on those premises. Obviously we have small sample size, I wanted only to discuss why, with only 1/3 of the players coming from overseas, so many were in the cut. We already had the same discussion after worlds and back then I recalled you agreed that Europeans player density, UK in particular, was a factor. As I said before, you (it's a more broader "you" than you Brunas, I'm mostly referring to @Tlfj200) are way to eager to jump the gun without even reading what people actually writes, as an example, the Vader discussion in the previous page, how did we go from these: to this? No one was making such a case. Like the whole EU vs NA wasn't a big deal either: it was just a funny nitpicking from the first 2.0 event. But then answers became those: Once it degenerates on salty remarks, it's pretty much over. I really liked your "TED talk" (altough I don't agree on some of your conclusions) and already praised many times your worlds preps, that's why I keep posting here. But ffs, read what people write before going rampage on something no one actually said (Like Wedge being GOAT)

    And this is one of the reason UK meta is on top right now: the sheer amount of quality games you can get there in uncomparable to any other place. While Jesper is probably an outlier even by UK standard, an average UK player get to play more and at higher level than most top players from other countries that's a pretty bold statement I agree: players are usually scared to fly more than 4 ships or don't even own enough models to play a swarm of any kind. Trajectory Sim might influence the lack of swarms, but it's not the main reason Then why the optimal stuff ain't winning? I'm not sure I understood what you meant here

    No one was actually taking any overarching conclusions from Coruscant, but between that and dismissing it as just a meme format where 2/3 of the players weren't even trying there are many other steps

    EU>NA /thread It was obviously a meme fest, but it was an even field where everyone started with the same limitation. If imperials had the softer ones, no one was preventing anyone to play Empire (as many have actually done) But who cares about that, I want details on that Luke Gunner thing! Let's do Worlds in Europe then, so you guys would be more motivated! Joking aside, you have a good point. But it souds awfully close to the fox and grapes: I'm sure USA top players went to Worlds with the same (and in some cases even more) preparation than the Europeans. I remember fondly your awesome data gathering and list building process. And while Worlds had americans of all level of skill when the europeans there were almost all top players, it's hard to say the same for an invite-only event like Coruscant For the first 2 editions and probably also the 3rd USA was definitely better than Europe: the game took a while to devolp properly here, only the UK was maybe the exception

    In the end I went with the alpha strike route with rebels tests this game night and altough it's still early on the tests (I had only 3 games against questionable lists) it seems promising. I played squad leader Braylen (Braylen was surprsing good), Prot torp Wedge e supnat protopr Luke. I'm not sure if it is better than Luke/Wedge + 3 Bs thought but it felt pretty solid. In my experience so far, Wedge is far better than it seemed at first glance: sure he dies like every non Luke Xs, but his ability is nuts in 2.0 and keep in check Whisper

    Oh i didn't know you were there, grats for earning a spot! As I said we had already other examples of random rulings at FFG events, that's why they aren't 'official'
