  1. Shouldn't he be taking @PartyPotato to the woodshed then? Or did he skip town?
  2. The deployment error was maybe more of hus game plan in general. It didnt appear that he intended to use the big guns on the ISD. It was less early hits, than the quasar being able to go last-first with the squadrons after his Pryce turn came and went. After turn 2 it was clear that the ISD wasn't going to be able to turn hard enough to bring its front arc onto my fleet and I was moving to get everything inside its turning radius. I started to look for a squad victim to pick up some easy points and establish a lead which would force Broba to make difficult decisions. Once the one defender got overlapped and repositioned to the rear, I was able to kill it with a long range squadron attack at the end of the turn. 16 points down, if Broba didn't move to engage with other squadrons during the squadron phase, I could have pulled all of my fighters out of range and retained them as a future counter punch or if he engaged (which he did) launch 6 howlrunner-flight controller boosted squads at the start of the turn, which can be crippling. I was always prepared to send Cienna in to snarl up a single squad during the squadron phase and then try to gain a positive point trade. Yes, he had Dengar, but moving to free up the the single squad would just be putting a target on Dengar.
  3. And it's over. Brobafett chose to go second so we played his fighter ambush. He was on the top of the screen and running his ships as a convoy right to left along the far back of the of the deployment area. The first couple of rounds, not much happened as he kept traversing the top convoy style and the arquittans moved to fall in behind his conga line. His Pryce turn 2 came and went. Turn 3 involved a slight overlap of a defender which was then moved close enough to be pounced on and destroyed. Mauler & black engaged and splashed some damage while his marek, and the remaining defender moved onto the nearby station for cover for a secondary strike after my squads hits the start of the next turn. Turn 4, the quasar activated and killed mauler, black and plinked through the station to kill the plain defender. In exchange howlrunner, a generic tie and the interceptor were lost. Turn 5, Quasar activating first again, saw the death of his Dengar and merek stele as the main ships orbited each other out of range as I slowly pursued him and Broba slowly drove away. Another generic tie died at the hands of jonus. we called it at the end of 5, Jonus would have died but there was no point in playing it out. 97 - 43. Thanks for the game Brobafett, he erred seriously in deployment, and I continue to fail my way upwards.
  4. The negotiations so far: We've established that nights won't work with the time change between central and pacific time and Broba (rightly)defending his time with his wife. So I've suggested today & yesterday (didn't happen, obviously) @ 5:15pm central, but haven't heard back yet.
  5. We're negotiating to come up with a time.
  6. We're trying to figure out a time.
  7. Mine showed up as well and look great, thanks for the cards and thanks for running this whole tournament!
  8. It is. And if you could defeat @JJs Juggernaut it would be much appreciated. My ships still have ptsd from the beating he gave them.
  9. I would have chosen station assault and tried to strafe down the stations from long range.
  10. A quick battle report between myself and @MandalorianMoose. I won 6-5 in a 114 to 78 in a squadron battle that could have gone either way but the dice fell heavily in my favor and so did the game. Unfortunately for the moose when I put this list together I had just played him (and lost heavily) against his very successful combination here. So my list was specifically crafted to engage lists EXACTLY like this one. It was luck that I managed to come up against him in the elimination round, luck that I rolled well, and luck that he didn't pick second player.

    Targeting : Yellow dot controversy

    Dot to dot. If it crosses a hull zone line, you don't have a shot.
