    How Far Do You Travel for Tournaments?

    The only time I really play are regional events. Traveled to 2 this year both 422+ miles away. I’ll fly if my wife won’t drive down with me. Dislike driving long distance alone. I’ve. Traveled to San Fran, Seattle, Portland, and Vegas last year for X wing events.

    New player tournament list advice??

    @drail14me you’re correct on the bid part, i think he is saying if you’re going to use a title avenger will gain you more advantage and use. If you want a strong bud then just cut the relentless title etc. I actually have fun using the relentless title so it’s a preference thing, but a skillled player would have the foresight to make sure they picked the correct dials instead of needing ISD training wheels.

    Regionals Feedback

    I think squall is hands down the better title imo. I did have my quasar hit with Cham twice in two games, so I was extremely grateful that I had pursuant. How do you like your squadrons?

    New player tournament list advice??

    @The Jabbawookie always offers solid advice so I’d take everything he says as truths. on your list I’m a bit low on the fighters you’re rolling. I question the value your raider would give you over say a few more fighters? Their current ball you have will die instantly without much of a fight and you’ll bleed points. I’ve personally only been nothing but disappointed in the raider personally. Not sure it does enough for its cost.

    @The Jabbawookie overall I like your take on a 2 activation list. I definitely think you’ll win the squadron battle vs the thrawn bomber lists I’ve seen. I do think that a sloane ace list might give you trouble but there weren’t many Sloan’s in Portland and I expect more thrawn and Dodonna. i ran pursuant on my quasar to help with slicer tools. Could be bad, but I did you it once every game.

    @The Jabbawookie how far off is my list from yours if I went Sloane?

    Grand Admiral Thrawn 2 Ship

    @The JabbawookieJabbawookie I've been seeing these 2 ship lists popping up more and more. Makes me want to just go straight Sloane with better squadron ships and go back to boarding troopers to win the ship fight. Thoughts? I'd really like to have boba Fett somewhere, but the only list I've seen him in is @CommanderDave (tagged this captain guy by accident and can't delete it )@captaindave

    Grand Admiral Thrawn 2 Ship

    @Karneck I really liked what won Portland and I’d love to fly the demo, but I don’t think I’m well versed enough in the game... like I told people in Portland I’ve only been playing for a few weeks, but I pick things up fairly quickly. I’ve liked the way the 2 ship lists look, but I’ve also only used flotillas for comma net and activation padding. I raelized in the last regionals though that I was activating my flotillas last because I needed to use the squadrons first which made me think the 2 ship list is the way to go.

    I honestly was a bit suprised to see my name here. You made me screenshot it and show my wife and she just looked at me like 🤨. Anyways I wanted to thank @The Jabbawookie for being a welcoming member of the comminuty. I've seen your attention to people posting the squad lists and the amount of collaboration you offer is amazing. I live by the moto collaboration over compition and i believe you emobied that. @xanderf for being a real joy to play with in my first regionals. Hope to see you at more events. @CommanderDave I've really enjoyed reading your tournament reports and hope you keep producing conent for the game.

    @Karneck Do you think just a Demo, Quasar, and Gozanti's could be a strong/survivable over an ISD? It's the 2nd list I've been tossing around.

    Grand Admiral Thrawn 2 Ship

    @The Jabbawookie Thanks :). If you remember from my first post I was tossing the idea around of a Thrawn list, but I was under the impression that Thrawn needed 4 ships to truly be optimized. I think now that might not be the case and his ability to be slicer proof on a list like this is really interesting. I still dont know how confident I am with Pryce play or even going 1st. I think I prefer being the 2nd player and using objective cards to help farm points. I do think that being a Squadron list it is more valuable being 1st player though so you can take out some of you opponents squadrons first. In terms of Objectives do you think Fighter Ambush would be fine here?

    @Andylicious I think I agree with you that my squadrons probably fair a bit better in a Sloane build. I flew sloane at the last regionals and really liked how this ball worked against my opponents. I was able to chew up all the squadrons with barely losing anything in between. Looking at your suggestion I made some modifacations and threw this together. It changes your jumpmaster to Dengar for the scatter, but we lose the ability to have the defender. Do you think this is too much of a cost? Squadrons:• Colonel Jendon (20)• Maarek Stele (21)• Mauler Mithel (15)• Morna Kee (27)• Tempest Squadron (13)• 2 x TIE Bomber Squadron (18)• Dengar (20)= 134 Points
  15. Alright everyone. We're at the drawing board again looking for a list for an up comming regionals event. I'm tossing around two different ideas for a list I'd like to see in action. For now I'm going to focus the first one as I think it probably has more survivability in the Long term vs the meta of MCU type lists. The last regionals I attended had an average of 5 Activations per list with someone close to 7. I ran 3 actiavtions last time and I honestly didnt feel like it was THAT bad. Here is my first attempt at a 2 list ship using Thrawn as the admiral. Scarif Point Defense Faction: Galactic Empire Points: 398/400 Commander: Grand Admiral Thrawn Assault Objective: Close-Range Intel Scan Defense Objective: Contested Outpost Navigation Objective: Superior Positions [ flagship ] Imperial II-Class Star Destroyer (120 points) - Grand Admiral Thrawn ( 32 points) - Avenger ( 5 points) - Governor Pryce ( 7 points) - Gunnery Team ( 7 points) - Boosted Comms ( 4 points) - Electronic Countermeasures ( 7 points) - X17 Turbolasers ( 6 points) - Leading Shots ( 4 points) = 192 total ship cost Quasar Fire I-class Cruiser-Carrier (54 points) - Squall ( 3 points) - Captain Brunson ( 5 points) - Flight Controllers ( 6 points) - Boosted Comms ( 4 points) = 72 total ship cost 1 Dengar ( 20 points) 1 Colonel Jendon ( 20 points) 1 Maarek Steele ( 21 points) 1 "Mauler" Mithel ( 15 points) 1 Saber Squadron ( 12 points) 1 Ciena Ree ( 17 points) 1 Darth Vader ( 21 points) 1 TIE Fighter Squadron ( 8 points) = 134 total squadron cost
