Just posted the results of the Game HQ Store Championship held on 3/22/15 in Oklahoma City, OK into the X-wing List Juggler. Here are the top four and their builds:

 

1st Place - Casey Malone 

Omicron Group Pilot + Darth Vader

Whisper + Gunner + Fire-Control System + Advanced Cloaking Device + Veteran Instincts
Soontir Fel + Push the Limit + Autothrusters

 

2nd Place - Tim Bunn

Whisper + Gunner + Fire-Control System + Advanced Cloaking Device + Veteran Instincts

Howlrunner + Swarm Tactics
Academy Pilot
Academy Pilot
Academy Pilot

 

3rd Place - Ryan Gainey

Gold Squadron Pilot + BTL-A4 Y-Wing + R3-A2 + Ion Cannon Turret
Gold Squadron Pilot + BTL-A4 Y-Wing + Bomb Loadout + Ion Cannon Turret + Proximity Mines
Corran Horn + R2-D2 + Advanced Sensors + Push the Limit + Engine Upgrade

 

4th Place - Trent Holt

Ibtisam + Sensor Jammer + Push the Limit + C-3PO
Wedge Antilles
Wes Janson + R3-A2 + Veteran Instincts

 

The score of the final round is incorrect, it was very close between Casey and Tim. I was checking to see if the program added MoV from the final rounds (it doesn't) and didn't record the actual score. As I recall, there was one ship (Soontir Fel) left on the map at the end.

I'm Board had their Store Championships I think the TO will post a more detailed summary, but I have a few of the Highlights

 

26 people, 4 Swiss rounds cut to top 8

A 3 Defender list (Rexlar+Predator, and 2 Deltas) made Top 8

2 Chewbacca and Leebo lists made Top 8 and played each other round 1 in the elimination (one of these screwed up and put gunner on Leebo, so basically flew at 95 points all day)

A Kath and Whisper Build made at least top 4

A 4 Scyk build made top 4 

Jake Farrel and 3 Bs with FCS Rounded out the top 4

a Dual Mando Merc build+Scyk made top 8

I don't remember much about the last top 8 build but it was rebels and had at least 1 B-wing, and I don't think it had a YT (of either type)

Oh ya fun fact, turns out the store had a kit from last year laying around so they added it's contents to the prize pool, pretty pumped to unexpectedly win a 2014 Store Champ range ruler (especially since my cardboard one is pretty mishapen at this point).

 

(and time to get my site caught up on all the entries from the last week)

Yes indeed, Bob and I faced each other twice and I drew George in the semis. I've been really close on a number of occasions with the TalaBand but yesterday they finally broke through.

The Double Ochos gave the Zeds all they could handle, my son has a really good handle on how to fly them, can't wait to see how he does with them at the upcoming regionals.

I don't have a full report, but here's what the top 4 looked like at the Borderlands Store Championship in Salem, Oregon on March 28:

17 players, 4 rounds of Swiss, cut to top 8. Quite a few Falcons in attendance, Phantoms were scarce.

Top 4:

Chewbacca and HLC Threepio Lone Wolf Leebo beats 3 Bounty Hunters.

4x Blue Squadron with Accuracy Correctors beats Autothrusters Soontir with Shield and Decimator.

Final round:

Chewbo beats Blue Squadron.

I was running the B swarm and was stoked to go undefeated until the final -- by far my best performance at any event. In the final, Chewbacca was melted quickly, but Leebo was tough to catch and rolling hot offensively and defensively. My dice are cold even on a good day (hence Accuracy Correctors) and my best shots on Leebo (3 crits one time, 3 hits another) were totally canceled by clutch defense rolls. Lots of 3- and 4-hit Lone Wolfed HLC shots on my Bs took them down one by one. Leebo survived with 2 hull points remaining. Great match. Ashton Ruiz won an SC for the second year with a monster of a squad!

You were running the mando mercs, right?  Did you lose your first top eight match?

I was the Triple Defender list, I did lose my Top 8 match, but the Mando Mercs did lose their first top 8 match as well

 

 

Ah okay cool.  I wish I could have played your defender list, never seen them flown before.

2nd (me):

Soontir Fel + Push The Limit + Targeting Computer + Royal Guard TIE + Autothrusters;
Turr Phennir + Veteran Instincts + Hull Upgrade + Royal Guard TIE + Autothrusters;
Omicron Group Pilot + Engine Upgrade + Rebel Captive + Advanced Sensors + Tactician + Flechette Cannon;

 

 

 

That's a really interesting setup on the Omicron.  How well did it work?

I was pretty happy with it. There's something about the shuttle that just makes some people target it (looks like an easy kill I guess) so Rebel Captive is great. Throws a couple stress out and is a general nuisance the first 2-3 rounds and then it's out of the fight getting turned around but that happens faster than people expect with Adv Sensors + Engine, also let's it arc dodge a little bit or even get a shot turn 1 if you go 3 forward and then boost.

 

Got a few smirks when people saw it in the list at 35 points but I think it held it's own. To be honest I hadn't played it before, was just something I tossed together when I decided I'd rather have more upgrades on my interceptors than just fitting in Fel+Turr+Doomshuttle+[16pt TIE]. So I loaded it up with what I thought would be a fun combo.

Results from the Moxie Games championship in Columbus, GA can be found here.

Wow Mux, Palob, Kavil FTW! And didnt lose a ship in the playoffs too!

 

If you're saying that based off the scores that isn't entirely true.  At elimination rounds we were just documenting the winners as the players had stopped turning in kill points because Cryodex doesn't use them to calculate standing anymore yet still requires points to be put in. So I just put it in as flat out wins to move things along more quickly (everyone was getting exhausted after a long day).  Didn't matter for the results of the tournaments because winners still moved forward, but now that I see it's something people look at in the juggler I'll be sure to get it next time.

Since no one else has put them up, here are the results from Games of Berkeley Store Championship (that I won!  with a HWK!).  4 rounds of Swiss and then a cut to top 8.

 

1st:

Jake (VI, Chardaan, Outmaneuver, AT, Title)

Jan (VI, IonT, EU)

Tarn (R7)

Bandit

 

2nd:

Han (LW, C3PO, Gunner, MF, EU)

Tycho (VI, PRockets, Title, AT, PtL)

 

top 4:

"Thugzapper"

2xBlack Sun Soldier (Feedback Array)

2xPirate (Feedback Array)

2xThug (Autoblaster Turret, Unhinged)

 

top 4:

Han (VI, C3PO, gunner, MF, EU)

3xTala

 

remaining top 8:

Chiraneau (VI, RC, Gunner, EU), Whisper (VI, FCS, ACD)
IG88-BC (Pred, SJ, Mangler, Damp, AT, Title)

Soontir (PtL, AT, SD, RGT), Vessery (FlechetteC, LW), OGP (Vader, Tactician)

Han (Pred, C3PO, R2D2, MF, EU), Jake (Title, Chardaan, PtL, AT), Bandit

 

The top game was interesting because it was untimed - against the other 2 Han lists (one in Swiss and one in the first round after the cut) I killed things and ran away, but this time I knew I had to take down Han first.  I had Han close to a corner with 2 HP left and thought I knew he was going to turn left... and he turned right!   Unfortunately for my opponent that move meant that Han flew off the board the next round, leaving Tycho up against all of my ships (or maybe my ships minus the Z, I'm having trouble remembering).  Took a long time to pin him down (and the rockets did some serious damage to Tarn) - but I finally landed an ion shot with Jan.  Some fancy flying got the ionized Tycho to run into Jan (he had given me initiative), leaving Tarn with a range 1 shot, target lock + focus + extra die from Jan, versus no tokens on Tycho.  Since Tycho was at 2 HP death was assured when I got 5 hits, but a bad roll meant I would have finished him even at full health.
