  1. This is exactly what I'm doing. Survivability with PTL and get damage with HLC where you can. In games so far and sims, it's worked very well.
  2. I have a fresh take on them I'm going to try out at the Tulsa regionals this weekend. Haven't seen this build anywhere yet, which is either a good thing or a very bad thing. Will let y'all know how the squad does.
  3. Computer rolls WAY too many evades. I've never seen so many 3 and 4 evade rolls. That being said, it's a fun way to practice flying and try out new squads.
  4. In my first tournament ever, my 3 K-Wing list finished 4-0 1st in Swiss only to fall to an Imp list (Vader, Wampa, Colzet, PalpShuttle) in the first top 4 match. I have only been playing X-Wing for a month or so. I was very excited to compete in my first tourney Table’s Edge – Amarillo, TX – 22 players (7 Rebel, 8 Imperial, 7 S&V) My list (100): Miranda Doni (K-Wing) + Lando Calrissian + TLT (38) Warden Squadron Pilot + TLT + Tactician (31) Warden Squadron Pilot + TLT + Tactician (31) Battle Report is here: https://community.fantasyflightgames.com/topic/206662-the-table%E2%80%99s-edge-%E2%80%93-amarillo-tx-%E2%80%93-22-players-7-rebel-8-imperial-7-sv/ Up next, have another SC on Saturday. Toyed with double Ghost and double JM5K builds, but I’ll be running the 3 K-Wings again instead with a little variant.
  5. Sorry if this is a bit long… Store Championship – The Table’s Edge – Amarillo, TX – 22 players (7 Rebel, 8 Imperial, 7 S&V) I have only been playing X-Wing for a month or so. I was very excited to compete in my first tournament. List Juggler is here: http://lists.starwarsclubhouse.com/get_tourney_details?tourney_id=1389 My list (100): Miranda Doni (K-Wing) + Lando Calrissian + TLT (38) Warden Squadron Pilot + TLT + Tactician (31) Warden Squadron Pilot + TLT + Tactician (31) -------------------- Game 1 (Josh): Keyan Farlander+ Fire-Control System + AutoBlaster + Flechette Torpedoes + Flechette Torpedoes + Stay on Target + C-3PO Nera Daniels + Advanced Proton Torpedoes + Extra Munitions + Push the Limit + Intelligence Agent Bandit Squadron Pilot + Ion Pulse Missiles Won 100-31. I took out Nera first, then the Bandit, and finally Keyan. I lost about 6 shields the whole match. -------------------- Game 2 (Jimmie G – Placed 4th) Poe Dameron + Veteran Instincts + R5-P9 + Autothrusters Coran Horn + Push the Limit + Engine Upgrade + R2-D2 + Fire-Control System Prototype Pilot + Chardaan Refit Won 100-62. A Warden went down early, but I took Coran out fast, which was the right move. The A-Wing was pesky as hell, but he finally went down too. Poe got another Warden before finally succumbing to Miranda. -------------------- Game 3 (Colin A.): Rear Admiral Chiraneau + Veteran Instincts + Engine Upgrade + Darth Vader + Gunner Whisper + Veteran Instincts + Advanced Cloaking Device + Fire-Control System + Agent Kallus Won 100-62. This game was close and for a long time I thought he was going to win, but ultimately my list prevailed. Again lost a Warden frighteningly early. Focused on taking the Decimator out with my two remaining K’s and Whisper was easy mop-up once the Decimator was destroyed. I had no shields on Miranda or the 2nd Warden at the end. -------------------- Game 4 (John G. – Placed 5th) Darth Vader + Veteran Instincts + TIE/x1 + Advanced Targeting Computer + Engine Upgrade Whisper + Veteran Instincts + Fire-Control System + Advanced Cloaking Device Omega Leader + Juke + Comm Relay Won 39-31. This game was amazing and extremely tense. John took a long time to set up each and every time. With only a 60 minute time limit, it was agonizing to wait. I focused on taking down Vader as fast as I could. Again I lost one Warden very quickly. The rest of the match was spent chasing each other around the mat. Vader finally fell about 35 minutes into the match. Almost everything was evaded from that point on. The match came down to an Omega Leader shot on my remaining Warden that had one hull left. Miranda had full hull. Time was up and we were playing the final round of action. Omega rolled one hit. The Warden had a focus token left and with only one agility die; everything came down to this one roll. I rolled the die and it skipped across the table and landed next to his damage deck. Evade was on top of the die. I had won. The roll made me 4-0 and knocked my opponent, who was now 3-1 out of the cut. I was the only player to finish 4-0 and was 1st in the Swiss. An amazing accomplishment for someone who had only practiced twice before the tourney. -------------------- Semi-Final (Michael D. – Placed 2nd): Darth Vader + Proton Rockets + Veteran Instincts + TIE/x1 + Advanced Targeting Computer Wampa Lieutenant Colzet + TIE/x1 + Fire-Control System Omicron Group Pilot + Emperor Palpatine Lost 14-100. Dice failed me as did my damage cards. My first Warden lost shield quickly and then took two crits in a row, BOTH direct hits. It was a terrible start that I would never recover from. Maybe I should have gone after the shuttle first, but instead went after Wampa. I did kill Wampa, but lost my 2nd Warden right after that. Miranda did some nifty flying to take the shuttle down to 3 hull, but I couldn’t outfly Omega and Vader forever. The match almost went the whole 60 minutes. -------------------- Final: Michael D. conceded the Finals match without playing as he had four hours to drive home and didn’t care about obtaining the regional bye. Kinda disappointing to lose to him only to have him forfeit the final match. The gentleman that won was flying: IG-88A + IG-2000 + Heavy Laser Cannon + Crack Shot + Fire-Control System + Glitterstim + Autothrusters IG-88B + IG-2000 + Heavy Laser Cannon + Crack Shot + Fire-Control System + Glitterstim + Autothrusters -------------------- Up next, have another SC on Saturday. Toyed with double Ghost and double JM5K builds, but I’ll be running the 3 K-Wings again instead with a little variant.
  6. Ahem... Yup...I fly three of those badboys.
  7. Am I assuming correctly that if the enemy is at range 2 and within your printed firing arc, that if your ship is equipped with TLT and Tactician that you are delivering the following: attack, stress token, attack, stress token? In a sense, if you get someone in range 2 and within the firing arc, you are dealing 2 stress tokens even if you don't hit? Tactician states: After you perform an attack against a ship inside your firing arc at Range 2, that ship receives 1 stress token.
  8. NPE is a new one that I'm not sure what it means, but I've seen it everywhere.
  9. Is it just open to anyone? Or do you have to place so high in a store championship?
  10. When will dates and locations for the regionals be finalized and what are the rules for entry? Anyone know?
  11. The real question for me...and one that I asked our TO for our Store Championship last night is this: If running Miranda or some other pilot with TLT and Tactician, using that attack at range 2 in the firing arc, you are delivering 2 stress tokens as well, correct? Attack....deliver stress no matter the outcome....attack again....deliver a 2nd stress no matter the outcome. The TO agreed with the statements above. Thoughts?
  12. I have an extra C3P0 card. If you're in the US, I am willing to send it along. You are a good dude...because 3P0 cards are running $25-30 on eBay.
  13. I caved and bought the pre-cut foam for the Feldherr case. I have the Feldherr backpack and bought specific foam for my ships.
  14. Definitely 2 x Jumpmaster 5000s. I'm going to run a pair of them in testing for sure. Also 1 TIE Advanced Prototype. It remains to be seen on the others.
