    Hi @BiggsIRL, I am quite late to the party... Looking to the long list of stand-bys, I assume that a qualification does not make any sense? Or do you plan to run a mega-super-huge-tournament? Like the Deathstar of all tournaments? 🙂
    Best, b2w

    The nice part about ASOIAF miniatures is that they have a great free app and listbuilder, and they give out free high quality errata'd card images on PDFs on their website.

    Apparently the Starhawk is good for winning a Prime.  Both Seattle and Chicago Primes were won by Starhawks this weekend.

    I've been sick all week, and are in no form to play decent armada, sadly.
    Thanks @BiggsIRL for the smooth tournament and a big shoutout to @Ginkapo who helped me with my list and pumped me up before my games. I think it was a decent showing for medium fighter coverage.

    Great game with a good opponent! He brought his squads much better into the game than I am, which has led to the result. While I like the  Starhawk and have some ideas for furhter builds, these mirror matches were a bit boring... I really look forward to the next round (even as viewer only) and to see how Starhawks fight other ships...
    Thanks @Aresius and good luck to all of you!

    Yesterday night, @Realadmiralsdoitinspace and I had our game.
    He won the roll, decided to go first and chosed Contested Outpost. Win for b2w with 266 vs 103 (Mov 163, 8:3)
    From my side, it was a very tactical game. Assuming that I can kill one ship only, I decided to avoid the Starhawk (especially with this 3 salvo tokens...) and use my squads to attack the Liberty. My Starhawk had the duty to collect tokens from Contested outpost and spam repair to simply survive…

    Realadmiral decided to go in very slowly which helped me a bit with my plan as I had time to fly the squads over to him. Here is the log file:

    https://drive.google.com/open?id=16Nja-V-A9iGg1OPkxIGmbytTsO9k38dm

    (Sorry, I dropped off a couple of times, thus 3 files…)

    Despite of having no big shooting but more careful moving, it was a great game and Realadmiral is a great and fun opponent! Two interesting learnings out of the game: Firstly, effects (like magnites) are plastic to plastic and secondly, you need to be very aggressive with the SH if it should have impact in the game.

    Thank you, Realadmiral for this game!

    Green Squadron 3 vs. 187-Leon
    Final Score 177 to 65, a 7 - 4 for Green Squadron. (MOV 112)
    He gave me first and we played his infested fields. Thoose 2 scary MC80 were able to entrapping my onager and finish it with an ackbar-bail-home1-defiance-double tab in round 3/4. No way to get out of this. His Exogorths were eating 2 Ties and throw obstacles in my way. I was able to catch 3 victory token and kill one of his Gozantis. Nothing more.
    I have made an Logfile..but only for round 1 and 2. Its not worth beeing watched...believe me.
    Anyway. Thanks for the great game. I learned a bitter lesson. 🙂 Good luck for the rest of the tournament.

    Reporting a good game with @CommanderDave
    he won 400 - 117. MOV 283 - 9:2 for him.
    He picked first and choosed my fleet ambush. In turn 1 his demo was able to avoid special arc shot from my Onager. First fail. His Decimators rolled a lot of hits and eat the shields of my isd and token nearly to 0 in first round. Second fail. I made a lot of mistakes. Third fail. His Interdictor doubleram me to death. Good luck for the rest of this tournament, for all of you. Im out now 😞 See you next time. I will upload a logfile somewhen. Thx @BiggsIRL for organisation.

    POD A
    RapidReload vs Tokra (yes the Tokra)
    Tokra has Bid, chooses Second, we play Targeting Beacons (he plays a Moralo list).
    I had the "honor" of playing against @187-Leon 's Moralo during the Vassal Autumn tournament and lost that game, so I was quite apprehensive of this one.
    Tokra put the station in the middle for Moralo health shenanigans, the obstacles were spaced between the station and his deployment zone. I deployed defensively facing the station, Tokra deployed in a way that his ships could fly around the center.

    After a bit of delaying and bumping, Moralo starts hit-and-running Mart and taking 7ish shields of the Star Hawk, triggering me to throw in Lando and 3 yt2400 to engage the shuttles and Moralo. I have little trust in killing Moralo as Lando couldn't reach him and was afraid of his healing capabilities so I start shooting at shuttles. Bad dice say only 1 goes down. Tokra expertly manipulates tokens and ranges and chews through my squadrons very very fast. However this keeps the Starhawk out of harms way, and a gun'ho Victory runs over a debris field and turns in towards the Star Hawk. 
    This allows for a front and side long range shot that comes out with 5 damage and an accuracy (naturally rolled on 4 red dice...). Three more damage from the sidearc into the same hull zone make the Victory bleed. It dies from the first activation the next turn when the Starhawk rolls 7 damage with an HIE crit on 3 red and 2 blue after rerolls.
    In the meantime Moralo has eradicated all my Squads with only Vader and a Shuttle as return casualties.
    At this point (Turn 5) the Starhawk is quite safe, points say Tokra needs a Flotilla kill to win 6:5. He goes for Toryn Farr turn 5 but cannot stick any damage (Sloane is dead). Turn 6 he goes after the Comms Net Flotilla, shoots at it around 8+ times but in the end it survives on 1 Hull.
    145:131 for RapidReload (6:5).
     
    Very tense game for me and Tokra is as always a very polite opponent giving me tips after the game (like taking a second Salvo with Agate in this matchup!!).

    While I am sure that you will find something to prevent this, I would encourage all players to make logs!
    I am more than interested in the play-tests of Onagers and Starhawks. Okay, Pod C might be a bit boring because in any case a Starhawk will win but I really look foward to the experience in Pod A.
    And in POD C, all Starhawks should not fight each other but assemble and attack the other PODs!
