    Looks like FFG does have a panel on Thursday @1pm, but sounds like it's just gonna be X-Wing and Legion.

     

    Fantasy Flight Games - Developer Panel

    Day: Thursday | Start Time: 1:00 PM | End Time: 3:00 PM | Game System: Hobby Seminar | Event Type: Hobby Seminar | Experience Required: None | Total Capacity: 50 | Capacity Full | Cost: 0

    Hide Description

    Join Fantasy Flight Games developers Luke Eddy and Max Brooke as they talk about their work on Star Wars: Legion and X-Wing!

    I wouldn't worry too much about this. Adepticon is usually more informal and light on details. GENCON is usually their big presentation.

    I didn't see it in the Prime Data collection. One of the problems is, that no one is playing him, and because of this there is no need for a change.
    There are only 9 Moralo in the Prime Data (out of 750+ fleets). Only two of these won a tournament (out of 43). This ratio is not really broken. even when you add the Denver one, it is not this much more.

    He sent me his list and is now in the Prime data. It is significantly different from other Morallo lists. The only out-of-activation mover is Squall and has not bid.

    The Denver Regional was won by a version of this list with a MOV of over 1,000.  29 attendees, and a lot of good players.  This list in the hands of a good player is very dangerous, and Eval is certainly broken.  I understand that maybe you'd like more data, but 'just kill his ships' isn't really a helpful suggestion against this - that was the same non-solution posed for use against Rieekan Aceholes, and that was easier said than done.

    Is there data for this anywhere? I didn't see anything from it. I'd love to have it for the data sheet.

    Steel Squadron’s rankings are highly suspect; they have placed the sixth-winningest Rebel commander (this Prime season) WAAAAAAAY too far down the list.

    Are...are we talking about Sato? The guy who's currently tied with a commander that's been in exactly *THREE* recorded tournaments?

    I expect the same. And the usual anti-squadron solution: kill the carriers won't work well for you at least it doesn't with any build I have come up with so far. I dread this becoming popular or wide spread.

    I also share the notion that this is boring to play with and even more so playing against it imho. My solution for the future will probably be: be second and run away. I really don't have a good answer to this atm.

    I have less of a fear of engaging it directly. It's a good build, but I'd hardly call it all powerful. It's simply the best way of using something I consider to be a very limited tool.

    What about it is unenjoyable to play, in your eyes?  Is it just the lack of meaningful activations (basically just the Starhawk)?  I would have thought the squadron game would inject some excitement into the list.

    I don't enjoy the squadron game, so if you get enjoyment out of it, the list could absolutely be enjoyable for you. I enjoy ship maneuver and the list has absolutely none of that. The Magnites actively encourage the exact opposite: go slow with your front toward enemy.


  7. As @jamie nasmyth said, I'm of the opinion that the best hawk build is what we're calling Hawk134. The problem I've found with Hawk is that unless you can force your opponent too shoot it, it doesn't have enough firepower or reach to decisively impact the game. Even bidding for second and trying to force objectives doesn't always do enough. I've played against Hawk MSU enough times to know it's not particularly difficult to just murder the smalls and take your smaller win. A hawk, 2 flots, and max squads essentially guarantees ship shots have to be directed at the hawk. It's much harder to ignore the hawk. I recommend watching Aresius in the World Cup. His style of list is the one I expect to become the competitive hawk archetype.

    Now is it enjoyable to play? Not at all.

    Vienna Prime Data:
    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1pQ3jRg5PG17Er6AE7TyjoqDJ44rva2Dol4H3w-5XI0M/edit#gid=410142021

    Warning: I had to change the decimal separator from a . to  a , in the first table. This should not matter if you just copy paste the second table.

     

    Some possible errors I noticed:

    There seems to be an error in cell F97 "Squadrons (Imperial Fleets), 0 Squadrons, Winners". There is no check for Empire and it counts the entire field. Fixed in mine.

    I think column "Regionals Full Lists Template ! CV"  (Large Total) doesn't count Onagers yet. Fixed in mine.

    Yup, Onagers and Starhawks weren't counting. I fixed it in a way that makes future addition of new ships somewhat easier for me. Thanks!

    No idea what happened with that single squad column for Imps, but that's fixed as well

    @Truthiness

    I noticed the score for the Neumünster prime are missing. They are on the T3 site (https://www.tabletopturniere.de/t3_tournament_results.php?tid=26220).
    The scores were: 23, 20, 19, 18, 18, 16, 15, 14, 12, 10 from top to last.

    But i guess you never analysed them so far. It could be a good data, to see how many points you need in average, and in relation to the participant. But this only works on pure swiss rounds, without any cut.

    Appreciated. I've never done anything with them for two reasons. 1) Spotty reporting. It's the thing I seem least likely to get. 2) The differing number of rounds makes it a little more difficult to gauge.

    I watched the start until the MonKarren blue dice reroll to 4 accuracies. I was very surprised that @BrobaFett jumped the ISD into the middle of three of your ships. As well as that the Pryce squadron command wasn't used to annihilate the right hand CR90. Shara could have been Dengar'd, allowing the Quasar to hide behind the ISD. Broba, I would be interested what your plan was.

    He might not have wanted to get hit by Lando that turn, who would have been in pouncing range of any attack on the 90. I suspect he also thought he might strip some if the Lib's tokens off and kill it with the ISD. There were a lot of little things like that which could have swing things differently. He killed that 90 in any case. I don't think it ever got off a shot.
