  1. Round 3 vs David Ametier (Nym/Rebel Operative/Crimson Specialist): Opponent's list: Nym, VI, ABT, Bomblet, Trajectory, LRS, Havoc Crimson Specialist, Trajectory, Silos, Proton Bombs, Hyperwave, Deflective plating Rebel Operative, TLT, Sabine Wren, Moldy Crow OK, so not a list I want to see. Especially those Proton Bombs on Corran are really scary. If one of them hits, and I pull a direct hit, Corran goes boom. I'll have to play very conservatively. Also, Nym can kill Ahsoka pretty easily if she gets too close to the action, and she doesn't like bombs either... Well, even Jake hates them haha. The HWK seems like the squishiest target, and is carrying Sabine, so I'll try and go after it. So Jake flanks on my right, and Corran and Ahsoka slow roll on my left. I try to bait the bomber into thinking Corran is going to go diagonally to my right with a fast move, so he banks in, allowing me to get on his blind side, so he can't use the trajectory next turn. Corran TLs the bomber, and Ahsoka focuses. Jake tokens up as usual. Nym launches his first bomblet, to cut off some of Jake's moves. Nym TLs Ahsoka, and in the combat phase, Ahsoka spends her focus and Corran focuses and boosts to get into R2. After doing the boost I realized I had got too close to the bomber... Corran double taps and I strip all shields off the bomber, deal a damage card and a direct hit. Nice start! Next turn the bomber drops a proton bomb on the edge of his base and does a 1 forward. Not looking good for Corran... I did a 1 straight trying to be conservative, but even though I BR to my left, I'll still be in range of the bomb... Jake turns left to help out, and Ahsoka stays close to Corran. Bomb goes off and I cross my fingers... Yeah! Shaken pilot! Nym fires at Jake doing nothing, the HWK is still very far away and the bomber does nothing to Corran. Next turn the bomber drops another proton bomb and stays still. Corran, who couldn't do a straight maneuver, has to BR and boost to stay out of the bomb's range. Ahsoka also goes left to avoid the bomb. Jake turns away from Nym's trajectory range. Nothing relevant happens. Nym prevents the proton bomb from going off. Next turn the bomber drops another proton bomb trying to get Ahsoka and Jake. Jake turns right and starts doing his "arc dodging" to token up until I realize how stupid I've been. I just ended right in Nym's way, at R2! Trajectory bomblet incoming! At least Ahsoka and Corran are fine... Jake rolls hot on the bomblet and I lose 2 shields. Sabine adds a damage card... A few rounds later time starts running out, and I'm winning by 18 points (half points on the bomber), but if Jake receives 1 more damage, I lose. The bomber has ran away to prevent me from finishing it (has only 3 hull left), so I try to go after the HWK with Corran, but I only end up at R2. Nym tries to get the last hull on Jake to win the game, but it will be at R3 and Jake is all tokened up. I fail to kill the Hawk with Corran and Nym fails to kill Jake... So I win by 18 points. Win 18-0
  2. Round 2 vs Ivan Sanchez (Asajj/Cartel Brute/2x Binayre pirates) (list in Spanish) Weird list, trying to exploit the "shoot-your-own-guys-droid", and as the Z-95 both have dead man's switch, they are quite scary. Asajj always gives me trouble, so my first target would be the harpoon carrier, the Kimogila. Setup (sorry for the picture, too much light on my back) Jake flanks, trying to get Asajj's attention. Corran and Ahsoka slow roll on my left. Jake turns left and tries to bait Asajj and the Z-95 to pursue him. Meanwhile Corran has a R3 obstructed shot on the Kimogila. Nothing happens. Next turn the Kimogila moves forward and Corran zooms past its arc to avoid the Harpoon. Jake, who is carying 2 enemy TLs keeps running away from Asajj and the Z-95. Next turn the Kimogila lands on a rock trying to avoid it, and Corran sees an opening. He gets into R1 with TL and focus. Jake keeps doing what he does best, and can't be caught by Asajj and the Z-95. Corran double taps the Kimogila, and takes both shields off, deals one damage card, and 2 crits (PS0, and Damaged engine). Next turn Corran runs away to get another pass. Jake keeps dodging Asajj. The Kimogila decides to 4k. Next turn the Kimogila changes the TL from Corran to Jake, and fires the first Harpoon, but thanx to ATs, focus and evade, Jake is fine. This is how the enemy ships are right now, with 20 minutes on the clock... I need to kill something quick, to avoid a 10 vs 7 final salvo My ships are brand new Next turn Corran is able to finish the Kimogila with the double tap. Ahsoka had used BMSTs on the shieldless Z-95 who had done a 3k, and was dealt one face down damage card. Corran lost 2 shields on a lucky R2 shot from a tokenless Z-95. Last round is called and I try to finish the wounded Z-95 to get better MOV. Corran is out of position so I try to chase Asajj and get half points with the double tap if I'm very lucky. Jake does a 5k, ending at R1 of the wounded Z-95, who also did a 3k. BMSTs fail, but Jake's R1 shot kills the Z-95. Corran doesn't get to R1 of Asajj so it's impossible to get her to half health. I win 40-0
  3. Hi guys! A few weeks ago I went to Barcelona (Spain) to take part in the X-Wing Regionals. As in last year's Regional in Asturias, (batrep here) I took my Corran/Jake/Ahsoka, but tweaked it a bit, to have more maneuverability in Corran. This is the list I used. I've been playing the game since early 2016, and had been to 2 Regionals previously (Madrid 2017 and Asturias 2017), and had gone 4-2 in both of them, but missed the cut with poor MOV, so my goal this year was to try and go 5-1, to make sure I made the cut. There were 123 players, so Top 16, and as there were multiple BYEs being used, only one 4-2 would make the cut. Round 1 vs Gerard Moreno (Kanan/Lowwhrick/Zeb) My deployment: Opponent's: Jake flanks fast, Ahsoka and Corran slow roll, to maximize Rey's focuses. My plan was to get Lowhhrick asap, so I could focus on the Ghost later. But we get to the first combat round and Lowhhrick is out of range, so I go after the Ghost. Corran and Ahsoka both focus. Jake tokens up but it's out of the fight yet. Ahsoka spends focus in the combat phase to give Corran a free action, so he TLs the Ghost and PTL for an evade. Corran double taps but I only take 3 shields off the Ghost and Corran lost 2 shields to the TLT... Next turn I intend to bump Corran into the Ghost to avoid being shot and also recover a shield, so I dial a 3 straight. My opponent saw my intentions and dialed a 3 bank on Lowhhrick to bump Corran, and a 1 straight on the Ghost to stay in place. His plan works, and Corran bumps Lowhhrick, staying at R1 in arc of the Ghost. Jake gets out of rear arc of the Ghost at R2. Thanks to Ahsoka's ability, I am able to save Corran. With her free action, Corran BRs out of Lowhhrick's way and boosts forward to end up at R1 of the Ghost, but out of arc, so he won't get shot this turn. Jake takes 1 or 2 shields off Kanan, but loses a shield to the 4 TLT attacks. Next turn Corran runs away from TLT range while regenerating the last shield. Lowhhrick had to break formation in order to avoid the little rock, so now the Ghost will be on its own for a few turns. Jake is able to get into the R1 bubble to stay safe. Few turns later Corran is back into action, but out of range of the Ghost, so he goes after Lowhhrick, who is still turning around. Jake gets into the R1 hole again. Jake is able to sneak 2 hits and a crit through, and the Ghost uses Chewbacca to discard the crit and gain a shield back. Corran double taps, and takes all three shields off Lowhhrick. Jake loses his last shield to Lowhhrick's R2 shots, but Corran is back at full health. A few turns later Jake tries to run away from the Ghost, as a rock protects the Ghost's flank, and I fear ending in the rear arc. Lowhhrick is also in Jake's back applying pressure. Corran is able to catch Lowhhrick's back at R1, and a double tap later, Lowhhrick's gone. Jake survives the TLTs A few turns later time is running out and I try to get the Ghost's full points but I'm not able to, as it survives on 2-3 hull. Jake survives. I win 55-0 To be continued...
  4. I was there as well, but didn’t get to play him. There was no streaming available... what a pity. It would have been awesome

    Have you considered switching Fleet Officer for Operations Specialist? You'd have your bomber action "free" to try to block enemy ships with a BR and take advantage of the Intel Agent, and you'd save a point from MK2 engines as you wouldn't stress the shuttle that often... And if you blank a lot you'd get lots of focus tokens!

    Tried rebuilding the list again. Selected the 3 pilots, and it crashed when I tried to put the first upgrade on the first ship
  8. Aurora Squad Builder: News and Updates

    There were 3 ships in the list. I usually select all my ships first, and then start putting upgrades on them

    I use the keyboard a lot. Mostly for intensity, as it hasn’t been implemented yet.
  12. Jake Farrell: why PTL is just better than Intensity for him

    That was also covered by the TOs, they said it was a no-no 5 action jake is awesome for its points
  13. Jake Farrell: why PTL is just better than Intensity for him

    IT’s definately awesome! I’ve been playing Jake like that for 3 months and is absolutely fun! You almost always have a spare token ti flip intensity back, and if you’re carying prockets it becomes a “really scary 1 turn fenn rau”
  14. Jake Farrell: why PTL is just better than Intensity for him

    That’s how I used to play it, until I was told Jake’s ability puts the part where you have to flip it back “on hold” until his pilot ability is completed... That’s how it was ruled in several big tournaments around here, including Regionals and Nationals...

    Awesome!
