    The ocho is confirmed! We know for sure that Academy Pilots are 25 points max. Or, that could be the mistake of the week.

    2018 Store Championships

    The FLGS I was the TO for ran theirs yesterday, 8 people showed up, including one visitor (down from 23 with 5 visitors and more the year before). The visitor took it home with Rey Lowhrick in a sea of wave 14 stuff. My son and I missed our first tournament at that FLGS in nearly 2 years... It felt really odd not to go. The good news is that he's no longer angry about 2.0 and has played 1 or 2 games in the last month.

    I read the bill that concerned me (the Accessibility Act, with very strong wording in its current version that could make my job easier), but not this one. Happy reading!

    It is not. It will be on October 17. I was waiting for the reading of another bill that this one bumped by a few days. And the date is the week before a public work thing that this may slightly affect. It should be fun.

    High initiative bombing is back! Thank you genius!

    Firesprays have always been great (to look at). When I was seriously burned out on x-wing last year but my son wanted to go to a store champ anyways, Kath came with me (along with Ketsu, because 2 Firesprays, eh, I like to win too). She surprised me and got herself a plaque by going balls out against OL, natties and well timed crits are the best strategy! I need to finish her paint job one day...

    It gets better if they forget to change the timing chart to account for this since the current one very clearly put the figuring out of the number of dice on the defender, which Qi'ra won't affect when you're attacking someone. It's basically Dash at that point.
  8. And bonus @Mu0n729 on stream on this one? Bonne game, même si je veux un 2e silencer maintenant...

    PS7 changes of heading should cover Round 1. But I may be biased because I know the local meta ain't that hard And I care very much about the idea of the nightmare of a Hera-fully-loaded-GhostFenn in rounds 2 and 3. She can adjust heading at PS7 AND boost at PS11! Especially with the threat of proton bombs to keep everyone at R3 of that monster. Alas, I don't have a bomber and likely will not even go to that tournament to inflict this new **** on people

    I dare you to break my League's planned escalation tournament format harder than I did (1.0 only, shame be upon us), they're going 75pts/105pts/140pts: Round 1: Hera + Zeb, standard GhostFenn build without the engine upgrade. Round 2: Add standard flight assist Fenn, Hera gets her engine back. Round 3: Add Crimson specialist with tragedy simulator, protons, silos, and plating. Sure, it doesn't have a bid, but how much of a nightmare would that be?

    Don't play Tim Bo when he's flying double casters? I got him in R5 of regionals in early 2017 and I had it easier because I a) had better cancer (Paratanni) and b) realized that between Asajj, a thug and Torkil, Torkil needed to die first, and quickly. He is a good player and knows his Casters. Perma-bumping my Asajj on his was also good.

    Either ping Bruno on Facebook or bug @catachanninja until he picks you as a challenger!

    I was planning to take ghostfenn to the first store champ I went to. But I just packed all my x-wing away to make some room today... Who knows!

    I still agree, but this is a long way off and may actually kill the other very useful thread. Who volunteers to dig out and compile all the great on topic content from the original?

    Best X-Wing podcasts?

    The Krayts, podcast and forum thread, are the best source for high level x-wing content. You have to dig through the memes to get to them, and be good enough to understand what's being said, because they rarely walk listeners through their thinking (the listener série does, a must listen). The Mynocks were great, but have settled in maybe a bit too much. The new edition may shake them out of it. Millenium Condor has the deepest dives into content like prepping for a tournament, what to look for in cheaters, figuring out what makes you tick, etc. It's generally very well researched and will serve you a side of introspection. It's in French, however. Their Loremaster quiz shows are in English and they are amazingly hilarious!
