    We recreated the Battle of Scarif scenario!

    So this is a complaint that has come up a handful of times in the past in relation to our videos, and I'm going to basically copy and paste what I've said before in reply to this. We really do pay attention to the feedback we receive, and we are always endeavouring to provide better and better content; however, we swear. A lot. If this is preventing you from enjoying, or detracting from your enjoyment of, our videos then that is a valid complaint. We're genuinely sorry that that is the case. But to be perfectly honest, and we say this with the utmost sincerity, we're not going to do anything about it. This is something that we do for love. The little money we do receive from our wonderful patrons every month is used to purchase things for the channel (better recording equipment, camera stands, etc). We pour a lot of time, energy, and money into producing this content, and work around a lot of our 'real' lives to do so. To be clear this doesn't undermine the validity of your complaint, but because this is something we do for love it is vitally important that we ensure that we're enjoying what we're doing. Censoring ourselves, and worrying about whether we've said "****" or "bull" too many times in one video, is not something that we would enjoy doing, so we're not going to. Again, while we're sorry that this decision detracts from your enjoyment of our content, ultimately its about making sure that we're able to keep doing what we do. On a personal level, the attitude displayed in your response is incredibly poor. Insulting our intelligence simply because we swear in the content we provide is a bit a much. There is a polite way of criticising someone and their work, which you did not have the courtesy to do.

    MOTF Batrep 31

    @carthwolf I'd like to try them more (particularly against other squadrons) but I would be willing to fly them at a major event based off the one game with them I've had so far.

    Australian Nationals 2018!

    Photo of the Fleet Display / Set up phase Also rather hilariously there were four byes in play this year. I took one. Fulcrum Nick took one. @beefcake4000 forgot his at home and @LTD elected not to take his. So of course who was paired Round 1? Beefcake and LTD!

    Australian Nationals 2018!

    Day 1 of Australia's Star Wars Armada Nationals is under way. We have 28 players here today in Brisbane at the Magic Vault. I'm currently writing this from the store floor plugged into a wall outlet as I enjoy my first round bye. The tournament structure is 4 rounds of Swiss Day 1, cutting to Top 8 who will play 3 rounds Day 2 with the overall leader at the end of those 3 rounds being the winner. Link to the TTT Veteran Captain Ken has made some behind the camera videos where he tries to call the meta and make predictions about the Top 8 I will be writing an Overnight Report about the tournament, and to anyone who is interested I'm sitting on the data from Polish Nationals and the London Masters which I will also be analysing (its not a lack of love, just been really under the pump for time lately)!

    MOTF - Battle Report Ep.10

    I definitely think there's a place for them! I just think the main part I personally find hard is that a lot of their job is area denial. So when they're being good at their job... nothing is really there for them to shoot. So it's weird because they're doing what you want them to do, but also you're sitting there going "I JUST WANT TO ROLL SOME DICE AND SHOOT THINGS".

    2018 VASSAL Autumn Tourney - Completed!

    I'm, regrettably, handing in a forfeit with my game against @xanderf. Apologies to Xanderf but the timezone difference makes playing of a weekday pretty impossible for both of us and then my weekends during the game period are intolerably busy (it was my anniversary this weekend, Armada Nationals next weekend, and X-Wing Nationals the weekend after). Apologies again to Xanderf!

    MOTF - Battle Report Ep.10

    Per the RRG, Pg 24: "Determine Number of Obscured Miniatures: The player checks line of sight from the attacker’s unit leader to each mini in the defending unit. If any part of a defending mini, including its base, is blocked by a piece of terrain, the player then traces an imaginary line from the center of the base of the attacker’s unit leader to the center of the base of the defending mini. If the imaginary line crosses the piece of terrain that blocked line of sight, the defending mini is obscured. The player repeats this process for each mini in the defender to determine how many of those minis are obscured." So basically you check obstruction of LOS first and then check centre line to centre line. I freely admit sometimes we mess it up, but in the above example I recall that eyeballing the centre line it crossed over the turret on the unit leader and the guy up against the turret beside him. Only 4 guys in the unit and all you need is 50% of the unit to be obstructed to receive cover. Hope you enjoyed the video.

    2018 VASSAL Autumn Tourney - Completed!

    Took me a while to get around to this post (had to head straight to an event)! @itzSteve and Captain Weather ended with a 170-444 (274 MoV, 9-2) win to myself. It was always going to be a tough matchup for Steve. The game can be summarised by the fact that my first two shots of the game were from an Adar Tallon'd Luke Skywalker onto his MC-75 were both hit/crit. Yeah, never had a better performance from whiffwalker. Fantastic opponent, it was an absolute pleasure to battle the lag with someone as fun and as chill as Steve. For Fantasy Scoring Purposes: Steve Killed: Yavaris, Adar Tallon GR-75, Toryn Farr GR-75, and scored 3 Precision Strike Tokens I Killed: Quantum Storm, MC-75, Salvation, Tycho, 2x A-Wings, a HWK-290, and scored 10 Precision Strike Tokens.
