So for reference, more large turrets than total players in the final four? Yup turrets are fine

There were also more total upgrade cards in the top 2 than players in the whole top 8.

 

Yup, upgrades are just fine.

Actually,looking at the top16, the meta seems to be quite diverse. And Dash+2b isn't exactly the winning list some on this forum would have whined about before today. There could be more imp and scum lists, but overall, i'd say the meta is in a better place than before the Phantom nerf.

I lost an absolute squeaker to Phildo in top 16.  if I had had one more round, or if I had been able to do 3 damage to Oicunn with a range one shot with Han, I would have won :-) 

 

Go Phildo!

So, what was your build?

 

Han & Jake (and upgrades?) ?

 

 

Yep.  Han + Predator + Luke + C3P0 + MF title + Engine; Jake + VI + PtL + title + Proton Rockets + Auto thrusters

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.

I don't think so.  Just look at all the stuff they put out today that are meant to take down Fat Turrets.  Agent Kallus is one crew that will really help do that.  The XX-23 S-Thread Tracer missile is another one.  I mean, just imagine Blount, that tracer, and a lot of Concussion Z-95's.  You wouldn't have a Fat Turret last a round with full volleys.  Then there are all the little things like "Scourge" the new Tie Pilot.  Wave 7 just made ordnance and bombs that much more viable.  Conner Nets, Extra Munitions, Plasma Torpedoes, making all the old ordnance cheaper.  I see FFG making a concerted effort to bring down Fat Turrets in many small ways.  Who knows what else is out there that hasn't been leaked yet?  I tell you now that I see a lot less Fat Turrets in the winners circle next year.  

 

I think I'm liking the future of X-wing.

What is the new stuff from wave 8 that will take down turrets? The best ship from wave 8 may be the Punishing One which is a primary turret. This ship has lots of options going on with crew, astromech, and illicit slots.

 

Edit: I suppose some of those things could help...time will tell if its enough.

I really like the winning list.

 

It's meta... but it's not at the same time.

As Paul Heaver has proven, it seems that's often the way to go :)

 

Fly a list that's as solid as can be... but with tweaks to counter the expected meta, and means your opponents don't quite know what to expect. You'll know your lists quirks, but they won't.

Very surprised by #1 and #3 using Anti-Pursuit Lasers

I'd always dismissed them as rubbish.

 

See the #2 list - Oicunn for the answer to that.  Anti-pursuit lasers are good against that rude ship.

Congratulations to the champion and to all top 16! 

 

Getting into the 16 is no small feat!

 

There will be some changes to the meta with the next wave, but I really felt that there was also a lot of good builds of different kinds in the tournaments all year.  The next 2 waves will be even more interesting, gotta love this game!

I think the combo of different things in Wave 7 and 8 will be enough to take down the fat turrets.  I'm excited about it.
