In Monroeville, it's Kris Soehnlin vs Isaac Whitehair playing for the trophy. Kris beat Paul Heaver in what I'll be the first to call an upset =P

Kris is running a Firespray. Don't know what else.

Kris conceded to Isaac about 10 minutes ago. The tournament ran a mere 13 1/2 hours!

From a photo, it looked like Kris had a shuttle, the Firespray and a TIE Fighter, and it looked like Isaac had a TIE Interceptor and at least one TIE Fighter. Sorry I don't have more details. =/

Oroshii had roughly this:

Wes Janson w/ Vet Instincts

Wedge w/ Opportunist

Luke w/ Opportunist

I was on the top tables all day (much to my surprise!) so I saw Paul Heaver running a bunch of B-Wings, although I didn't closely note what his squad was.

The person a lost to, named Ed, made Top 8 with Howlrunner w/ Stealth Device, Backstabber, three Obsidian Sq. Pilots and two Academies. (Bloody TIE swarms, haha.)

Another Top 16 player, whose name evades me at the moment but I did play him, had Hobbie w/ a Flechette Torpedo and R3-A2 (is that the new one that stresses an opponent in your firing arc?), Biggs, Green Sq. Pilot w/ PtL, and Gold Sq. Pilot w/ Ion Cannon Turret.

My list was

Wes Janson w/ Veteran Instincts

Wedge Antilles w/ R2 Astromech & Opportunist

Luke Skywalker w/ R2-D2 & Opportunist

And here I thought the Transport X-wings were the death of Interceptors...

Just not worth it. It's the first couple results, you're just looking for an arguement.

The fact that an Interceptor squad won a 38 person regional is very significant. Feel free to ignore some Store Championship results if they don't fit your ideas about game balance, due to the more local nature of the Store Championships. But these Regional results are a pretty big data point.

 

 I'm honestly surprised, since it seems to fly in the fact of the traditional Interceptor wisdom (ie, use them with Push the Limit). So the Interceptor is still viable, if maybe proven to be a bit more viable than originally thought. I don't think many were using Alphas. All the more respect due to the surprising nature of the squad.

I got smoked by that Tie Swarm in the top 4 of that regionals. Interceptors are fine they punch hard and evade equally as well.

Thanks for the update until we get the full list. We had your squad reported already, unless someone else in the Top 16 had the same exact squad. That clarifies Paul's list and the Winner's list though.

The fact that an Interceptor squad won a 38 person regional is very significant. Feel free to ignore some Store Championship results if they don't fit your ideas about game balance, due to the more local nature of the Store Championships. But these Regional results are a pretty big data point.

 

 I'm honestly surprised, since it seems to fly in the fact of the traditional Interceptor wisdom (ie, use them with Push the Limit). So the Interceptor is still viable, if maybe proven to be a bit more viable than originally thought. I don't think many were using Alphas. All the more respect due to the surprising nature of the squad.  

 

I have messed around with a similar list in practice at home, its the most firepower you can have with 6 TIEs. Stealth on one of the Interceptors vs Howlrunner makes a lot of sense, because when you rotate your squad you end up with 2x academies + a stealth interceptor in front, and Howlrunner and 2 naked interceptors in back. Keep the high value / glass cannons more protected.

 

It's still just one data point but it's an interesting one. The stress economy doesn't really affect non named Interceptor pilots, only turrets do.

I got smoked by that Tie Swarm in the top 4 of that regionals. Interceptors are fine they punch hard and evade equally as well.

And I smoked that interceptor squad with Biggs, 3x Blues w/adv sensors....but got tabled by your list in the top 8 :-/

    I came second. 1st and myself both had byes in the first round as we had both won a store championship. We were matched up it the 2nd round. I won that round tabling the swarm in 4 turns. 3rd round I played 3rd place and won by 17 points. He had a chance to win with his final shot but a bomber got both his evades to get me a win. 4th round I played 4th place guy and won. The final four was determined and I had to play the 4th place guy again and won again. I lost the final match vs 1st place (obviously). :P

Thanks Alarum, I added those squads. Top 4 is probably OK for a tournament of 12 players, although if anyone can track down the next 4 for Top 8 I'll certainly add those as well. Most everybody would have gotten prizes there, that's pretty cool.

Isaac had Howlrunner with determination, 2 acadamey pilots and 3 alpha pilots in his tie swarm.

I played him the first round. I was running Vader/Fel/Phennir...

Facechecked Vader into the swarm right off the bat (thought I could clear... but... big mistake) and he got slaughtered. I had him down to 2 alphas and howlrunner when I messed up Phennirs placement and got him killed... And then right after that I flubbed a 5 d roll on Fel (4 focus results, 1 blank. Had spent my token) and he was oneshotted.

 

First ever tournament game! Was a ton of fun! (Also lost to a Janson/Wedge/Luke opportunist murderfest.)
