    I guess.

    However, where is the line between noting you disagree with it, and bullying?

    Like, Dee and Paul, both Marshals of national-level events (whatever they're called now), are noting they would use the warning system under the stalling rules, and mitch simply has videos as illustration. Like, it's sort of a jump to think they're twisting their rules to specifically bully him personally out of events. Mitch wasn't even going to attend NOVA?

    In case this is your first encounter with this question, Pheaver has stated numerous times (including this thread) that stalling to exploit a stalemate is the illegal action (this is also stated in the rules).  All those other things happen after an advantage has been attained.

    While I have very strong feelings on this subject, I'm staying out of it. Don't twist my words to support an unrelated argument.

    There are such a thing as warnings.

    Woah there dog, I never said what I was doing was acceptable. I NEVER said that Fort Farmer was the correct way to play the game. I was exploiting a tactic to mainly prove a point about how stupid it is, and it just happened to be good enough to win me a system open*

    We mention this in an interview in our most recent episode, but FFG solved the 4 Phantom problem by just nuking it out of playability.  4 Starvipers operates in the EXACT same way as 4 Phantoms did. I know all the things Mitch is saying because I employed the same tactics. If a judge had said to me "Hey, you need to come out of your corner" then I would've probably stalled 2 turns (like a lot of lists do) and then moved forward with the engagement.

    Here's the main issue with these lists, and with Mitch's argument, you can't just look at a game and be like "Oh when did I go wrong here", because it's all just hindsight bias.  Let's say I opened with a One Bank, then another One Bank BR, then a 1 Straight BR with the Vipers.  By then my opponent may have taken a bad engagement and I destroy him. It's hard to say anything was done wrong there, but the point is if my opponent DIDN'T take a bad engage, it's too easy for me to just opt out and stay on one side of the board protected by the board edge.  

    Also, all you guys saying Dee is a "Joust Me Zombie" are super ignorant. Aces get super wrecked by 4 vipers and 4 Phantoms too. They have way lower salvo dice and NEED to engage at some point. The only ship that usually has a shot in these types of matchups is Whisper due to how she also moves impossibly. If anything you guys supporting this strategy are the "Zombies" because it's the one forcing a joust, because it's staying in a place where it's covered by two board edges.

    I really wish people would play with or against these types of lists before making outlandish accusations on the internet.

    Also I really like Mitch and think he's a good dude. He's doing what he's currently allowed to do because FFG isn't showing any Teeth. Just like I took 4 Phantoms, I'm not going to hold his choices against him and neither should the community. What they should do is demand from FFG a better clarification of what "exploiting a stalemate is" and judges need the guts to call people out on it.

    Listen.  I understand that myself and other head judges that share my opinion are low in number (but growing!).  I also understand that the players want to have a clear rule that they have to follow, and it's frustrating to not have one.
    We've gone over the same arguments for months now, every time "not-fortressing" shows up in a stream.  In the months preceding NOVA, I tried to point out far and wide that this tactic will not be acceptable in my event, so that no one would show up and be surprised.  So, if I'm a bit curt now, I'm sorry, but repeating myself when I don't believe it will change someone's opinion doesn't seem like a good use of my time.
    Again, I have nothing against Mr. Raab or any other player using this tactic, if their head judge allows it.  If you are worried that your strategy might count as exploiting a stalemate, ask your head judge before the event.  Most likely, it's fine.  Launching probe droids and waiting a turn or two for them to get in position is fine.  Having Han and Jake run around to try to get someone to follow the rabbit is fine.  Running for time when you are ahead on points is fine.
    As for shining a positive or negative light on me, I long ago stopped caring what people on the internet who I don't personally know think about me (thanks Roanoke!).

    Almost.  MUH DICE conspired against me so hard that my opponent said, "I really don't want to win like this".

    The warning would happen in Swiss round 1 before you get on stream.  Honestly, I'd probably take you aside beforehand, since you are known to use this tactic, and explain to you that exploiting a stalemate condition isn't acceptable in my events.
    Note: I'm not blaming you for doing this, or calling you a bad person or anything.  If the marshal allows it, you are free to do what you want.

    Honestly, I couldn't beat it with squads I found fun (Sear Swarm was my main squad leading into this).  Since I couldn't beat it, I joined it.
    The meta call was that large bases would disappear by the time I hit the cut, so I just needed to get there.  Once I would, I could beat any swarm or single or double ace list.  The triple ace lists that are all 5+ (Oli, for example) needed a little bit of luck and outplaying.
