2-2 Win/Loss at my First Tournament

6 posts in this topic

I represented the Imperials at the Game Matrix in Tacoma, Washington on May 4th.


My forces were:


2 Royal Guard Interceptors

            Both with Push the Limit

            One with Targeting Computer

4 Imperial Academy Pilots


My first game:


I was facing two YT-1300.




Both had upgrades and such. I don't remember all of what he had, but I do remember my opponent had a Recon Specialist on each ship.


That game ended poorly for my Imperials.


My second game:


I was facing a named Tie fighter (I forgot name), and 4 Tie Bombers.

Due to my inexperience and superb noob skills, I lost three tie fighters to Proton Bombs in one turn.


Note to self: Do not joust with bombers. Especially if they have bombs. Maybe if I have bombers too. Maybe.


That game ended up a loss for me, but not by too much as my opponent wasn't able to actually land any serious hits with his bombers after the bombings.


Game three:


I was facing three Y-Wings and a B-Wing. They all had Ion stuff (turrets and cannons). I actually won this game. Very hard fought and kudos to my opponent.


Game four:


I faced three X-Wings and a HWK-290. The HWK-290 I think had Recon Specialist and it was the Moldy Crow and Kyle Katarn. It was collecting Focus tokens like they were going out of style. It was another ship I never fought before. I still ended up blowing it away.


This game was one of the closest and hardest of the day. I managed to win by 3 points! 51 to 54 points. A very hard fought game as well.


The tournament was very awesome. All the players were great people and I had lots of fun. The hard part was trying not to burn more money on ships as I am currently unemployed. I should have gotten into this game last year when I had income.


Anyways, I came away with this prize. A Dagger Squadron Pilot. Sigh. I need to pick up some B-Wings now.

I haven't played against bombers, but I've played bombers and only have ever managed to bomb my own ships. I'd probably also do poorly against them haha.

Seismics are some of the best 2 point upgrades in the game.  I run 4 of them on my 3 Gammas and Jonus.  Super effective if you know where the enemy ends up before you move.


I played one game against a Jax Swarm and was getting slowly taken apart...until I dropped 3 seismics and took out a full health Jax and 2 full health Ties...GAME OVER
