2016 Store Championship Results

Recommended Posts

I hate Candy Land but I will buy a copy and trade it to you for all your X-Wing stuff. I'll even cover all the shipping both ways.

In ice cream?

 

Nice job, NervousSam! Apparently your forum name is an inappropriate sobriquet, as you were clearly able to contain your nerves long enough to pull out a first place finish. Mind sharing what your list was, or just a relatively standard Blackshot Swarm?

If the entire meta is going to be 3 ship lists, each with 2 low health aces (since you're ignoring the stacks of tokens they hide behind), this is a smart play.

I've played 5 Autoblaster Y-Wings before and it's decent. I had an idea that 4 autoblaster K-Wings would be good.

Beyond range 1 they have their regular turrets. They have slam, and they have 9 health each. It's not like you're going to face a swarm since no one plays swarm, and should you face quad TLT you have the advantage once you close to range 1.

Against a fat turret you can just 2 damage plink it to death, and if it closes to range 1 it's now facing 3 dice.

Final matchup was: Whisper, Omega Leader, Yorr (with Palp) vs. Corran Horn and Miranda --Imperial win.

Other Top 4:

Double Phantom

Quad TLTs

Rest of Top 16 (that I can recall):

Han+Jake

Corran, Jake, Proto

IG 88 A+B (I think three of these lists)

IG 88 B+D

Palp Shuttle, Vader, Omega Leader, Wampa

Poe, Stresshog, 3Z95s?

Guri, Slaver, 2 Z95s

I had a Redline + Mini-Crack Swarm for my first opponent, and I know there was a Fel + Mini-Swarm that the winner flew against for round 2 of swiss. Fat turrets were actually completely absent for the event, as were Scyks and Bombers (not 100% sure about the bombers), if I recall correctly. Every other ship was being fielded.

 

Fel, Omega Leader, and Howlrunner, were the most popular named pilots. There were at least 8-9 K-Wings with 7 of them being Wardens; 4 in the winners list and another 3 being run as heavy bombers with Ion and Proton Bombs, and Bombardier crew (if I'm remembering the list correctly, not 100% sure since I didn't fly against it), as well as 1 or 2 Mirandas floating around.

 

Overall, it was a fairly diverse tourney, with some really interesting/nasty stuff being run.

Just won a 24 person event outside Atlanta today. Blackshot swarm. 

 

Other top 4 lists were

 

2. Torkil TLT, Thug TLT, Slaver w/ K4, Tactician, and a Z95

3. Quad TLT Y's

4. Carnor + 3 Omegas with Juke/Comms Relay

Gratz Sam, but I have to say I'm most excited about that good showing for Jax's Jukes! Love that list but concerned it won't be competitive. Gives me encouragement to run it at our store :)

I see Crackshot swarms all over these tournament results.

These store championship attendance numbers are huge.

It's crazy this year. These numbers are exceeding last year's attendance by 50% or more. The At Ease Games store championship was the same round length and cut (6 rounds/Top 8) as the 2015 Regional held at the same store last year! It's literally 12-14 hour tournaments now.

The Roseville SC was actually bigger than the regional and had a bigger cut due to the rules change! Every store in the area is taking preregistration (or should be) that can't fit a large number easily. I can't imagine what it means for regionals and then Worlds sign ups.

I've posted it elsewhere, but the Game Castle Santa Clara stor championships were yesterday, and I placed 6th in swiss with non-meta scum. Made a play error that left miranda alive with ONE health (ant the rest of my list in no position to finish her, which led to my loss) in elimination, though. Still kicking myself over it.

 

Black Sun Ace (23)
Predator (3)
"Hot Shot" Blaster (3)
Munitions Failsafe (1)

Kaa'To Leeachos (15)
Crack Shot (1)
"Hot Shot" Blaster (3)
Munitions Failsafe (1)

Drea Renthal (22)
Ion Cannon Turret (5)
Extra Munitions (2)
Proton Torpedoes (4)
R4-B11 (3)

Binayre Pirate (12)
Glitterstim (2)

Total: 100
