    Beginner2Winner got a reaction from Tokra in 2018 VASSAL Autumn Tourney - Completed!   
    This night, I was giving @Tokra a lection about the dangerousness of my list and my skills as player.
    Ups, sorry, I've messed something up, it was the other way around... ?The result sounds nicer than it was, I was the mentioned one hull point away of a tabling. Plus that Tokra has forgiven me hundreds of small errors... 
    Great game which I messed up from the very first beginning. I've learned that I need to change this mission to something which can be used without strategic squadrons. Plus I should have deployed differently but I had the image in mind that I would be able to get the tokens. After round 1, I was in a not-to-nice position and without tokens... I've tried to adjust my plans to this situation and to avoid his squadrons but pushed not hard enough on this plan. Thus, he was able to shoot but I had a too bad position for doing damage against him.
    Furthermore, my list likes being first player more and I am still not sure if choosing second player was worth it. Avoiding Tokras missions is for sure a plus but having not first-last is a clear downside.
    Anyways, a very good game with a very great opponent.

    Wow, 5 points... That gives me the chance to play against exactly the same list in my second game again... Now against the creator of the list... I am not sure what I dislike more from these two issues...

    This could do the same, as there would be four 10s and only one 9 which would be paires with one of the 8 and so on - which would change the pairig of Tokra, Doppel, DarthVeggie and myself (by the way - all germans...)

    That be me. Funny is that this means, as long as greenie avoids a 6:5 in his match, we are going to play winner and loser of Tokra vs Darth Veggie. And since I stole Tokras fleet, Veggie and B2W will face the SAME fleet in round two. (I think not one hundred sure on this)

    Wow, what a game! First of all, meeting Doppelgänger in this tournament was a funny surprise - we are both located in Hamburg and meet each other in our Armada-Ligue... Thus, I was a bit excited about our game: My first Vassal-Game, Doppelgänger is an experienced player (which has won our last Ligue) and he used Tokras DM List - which has proven its value.... 
    Anyways, I had a list with tools against Squadrons, I was able to learn about the list due to Tokras experience so I could also formulate a plan... so I should have a fair chance. And the first half of the game went as planned: I neutralized his squads with my Tyco and Shara and the offer of my slicer-tool -transporter as sacrifice, so that my heavy hitters were able to come close to his ships without any damage. Knowing that I had no chance to win without tabling (as he could farm tokens much better than I), I pushed aggressively to kill both MC 80 and Yavaris. 
    In Round 3, I had a very good position while Doppelgänger was a bit stretched, thus he could not command his squads well. But from here onwards, it went wrong... I was too excited about shooting and rushed forward without much thinking... While I was able to destroy all of his ships, I was also able to fly two ships from the board, loosing the game... Doppel continued to play concentrated and efficient, thus remaininng alwys extremely dangerous. Especially using the mission (Precision strike) to his advantage was one of his specialities...
    Great game with a great opponent. I had great luck with my extremely hot dices, while Doppel rolled ACCs always in the wrong way (many ACCs if he had no use for them, no ACCs if he needed one...).
    @Drasnighta, thanks for the clarification. So what are then our final points if MoV is 0?
