2015 Nationals Results

PWT also means pancake with turret. I think. Regardless I had neither. Lone wolf HLC Dash is completely different than those ships. I have to keep my friends at range 3 and my enemies out of range 1. It is not a simple stomping machine.

Its still a primary weapon turret dude. If it shoots 360, its a turret.

Congratulations are definitely in order, everyone in the top 4 flew great to get there, I didn't play you, but there's no doubt in my mind that anything other than your skill got you there.

It's not technically a Primary Weapon Turret... That being said... Dash w/HLC is worse...

Geez the top 4 where all PWT, and they said Tie Phantoms needed nerfing ..sure there.

What's a PWT?  I looked it up on urbandictionary, and the result I got seemed rather irrelevant.

 

 

"Primary Weapon Turret"  In other words, Falcons, Decimators & Outriders

 

 

outrider is actually a  SWT (2ndary weapon etc.)

 

yt-2400 is a PWT, but it sucks (2 dice) and so does the K-wing. Both need to do other things (cannon, bombs) in order to be good so being a PWT doesn't really matter for them.

 

so really, just the YT-1300 and VT-49 and soon the pogostick with its stupid stupid title

Well, Team Covenant has to watch and record their commentary, as well as add in the graphics. Probably going to be at least a week, since they still have a bunch of other Gencon stuff to post, and they are driving back.

I'm just happy that all the announcements made today will make Fat Turret lists very hard to win with for next year.  I heard about the lists in the final game and was so bored I fell asleep.  There are lots of things to take down Fat Turrets in the new waves.

Jeff and Phil's matches were anything but boring

 

 

To you.  They were boring to me.

I assume you weren't at gencon. It was some of the most high level play out there. Phil went 0-2 then bad completely win out without losing his ships which is hard with a decimator that moves first against a lot of things. Crazy exciting games!

Yea definitely not a fan of super dash rearing his ugly head again lately.  He had sort of diminished for awhile, but he seems to be back in force again.

 

I've said it before, but he's a weird ship in that if you bring a counter to him, he is much easier to deal with than the other turreted ships.  But if you don't, he's probably the hardest to deal with.

I don't know about Spain but Canada is Sept 5 and will probably have the lowest attendance of any National in the world this year, just a small tournament that happens to be a National. The organizers running it this time haven't just dropped the ball, they lost the ball in the woods and asked their dad to put a new one on his shopping list for the next time he goes to the sporting goods store if they are on sale.

I agree. The HLC Outrider is much tougher to fly than primary turrets.  I was flying a RAC with engine and Whisper. I like playing against Dash because I can usually get into his R1 band but Jeff flew this amazingly keep me outside his danger zone!  I honestly don't think I have seen anyone fly Lonewolf better he was always range 3 from his Bs.  Congratulations to everyone who played at Gencon!  It was a tough field and I had no easy wins.  Looking forward to seeing some familiar faces up here at Worlds in November.

I actually would have considered going to Canadian Nationals especially to use my bye, but NOVA Open is that same weekend.

Where is Paul Heaver or Doug Kenny in this list? Did we get a whole new set of names?

 

Also surprised to not see RAC or Han in the final.

One of the things that happens to poplar builds is that people build to counter them.

 

Sometimes, everyone builds to counter them, or gets tired of them, and they just drop off the radar.

 

 

I will say that while not too surprised that a turret was what won I am surprised that the winning list was none of the standard Fat Turret Builds. Super Dash was here but it wasn't super Dash and Corran Horn like most instead you saw cards that you never see like 2 Blues and APL!??!?! When did that became a thing?!!?!

Oh no, lots of people would like to attend it is just going to be such a disaster many players are writing it off. You can read all about it in my full report!

Can you provide a link to your report or is this a future consideration item?

 

Also, that is why for Ottawans they are holding the National Capital X-wing Open 1st edition. Vuud was at Gen Con and is providing Wave 7 as prize support (as well as the remains of his store kits).

Yes stay tuned, the report will be after the event. Not much to say at this point, I just want to confirm all the fears and preconceptions were spot on.
