Battle Report - 100 Points [Lots of Pics]

Recommended Posts

Just bought the Force Awakens starter so obviously taking the boys out for a spin was a must!

Rebels/Resistance:

 

- Blue Squadron pilot + Autoblaster + Accuracy Corrector

- Blue Ace + R7-T1 + Autothrusters

- Poe + BB8 + PTL + Autothrusters

Imperials/Order

- 4 Academy pilots

- Omega Ace/Leader? + an EPT... can't recall

- Another First Order unique pilot, the Ace/Leader who removes stress

-- The rest of the points were various modifications and upgrades. Can't recall exactly.

The Blue Squadron B-Wing, with its heavy autoblaster, leads the charge into the swarm...

....and in one volley obliterates the lead TIE Fighter, having its heavy shielding absorb the hail of fire from the remaining Academy TIEs.

The shootout becomes a melee as the B-Wing and Academy TIEs perform stressful K-turns and the supporting First Order TIEs and T-70 X-Wings join the fray. The Imperials lose one more TIE and one of the leading First Order TIEs loses his shielding. The B-Wings shielding finally succumbs to relentless barrage of laser fire.

The X-Wings cover the withdrawal of the wounded B-Wing, with one chasing the fleeing Acadamy TIEs, and the other engaging the pair of First Order pilots.

The game is still up for grabs as the pilots jockey for position...

... Then two more TIEs fall to the Rebel aces and heavy autoblaster, though heavy damage rocks what is left of the B-Wing.

The 2 remaining Imperials form up for one final charge at the Rebel squadron, but are both destroyed as the Rebels launch their own counter attack.

_______________________________________________________________

It was our first match after taking a long hiatus from the game, so in my opponent's defense the game served largely as a refresher (i.e. Autoblasters = bad haha). And to his credit our rematch later that day was a nail-biter with the finale being decided in a 1 v 1 dogfight between a T-70 and TIE Advanced. 

 

All in all though I loved the T-70s. Especially Poe with the 3 action combo allowed through BB8. I go back and forth on whether or not BB8 or R5P9, but I think I'll stick with BB8 for now since its just such a joy to fly. When another high PS T-70 comes around with an EPT slot I think I'll switch Poe over to R5, but until then I think he will be my go to for the BB8+PTL combo. And my opponent swore by the stress eliminating ability allotted to him by the FO TIE especially with PTL on the Omega Ace, so wins all around.

 

Thanks for reading!

Excellent battle report and graphics! I'm a little out of touch with slick combos but I'd never considered Autoblasters and Accuracy Corrector. That's nasty! Glad to see the B-wing survived despite the epic first joust.

Thanks! It was pretty intense there for a bit. and I don't know how competitive the autoblaster+accuracy corrector combo is at the high level of things, but it is a ton of fun to play. Nice way to finish off an opponent or even to use as an area denial tool since people generally try to steer clear.

Holy cow!   The new starter comes with a lot of special features.  I gotta pick one up

Haha. The future is now.....

I've played against 2 IG-88s with Autoblaster+Accuracy corrector. Tore me apart very fast. That list made it to last 4 of a store tournament.

Great write up and awesome pictures! Please continue to post more. Although maybe in the battle reports section. Either way, thanks for sharing!

Not going to lie bud.... Didn't even know a Battle Report thread existed. Haha. Guess since the Armada forum doesn't have one I just assumed. Good to know though!

Loved your pics mate, I'm really interested as to what you used to make them!

Sure Frost! I use two iPhone apps: Laser Sword for the laser effects, and SpaceEffects for the different explosions, shielding, etc. One of the apps was free and the other was like .99. Coupled with the iPhone's standard editing options you can make some pretty cool shots. Good way to kill time in a waiting room, the bus, or the "throne room". ;) Edited by xApolinar
