I have a twitter feed with source information on the standings but no lists for Rochester! I'm very interested though, Awings took the crown and I want to know what they were up against!

 

Better late than never... I arrived back yesterday to Houston only to get inundated by the April 18th monsoon. Nevertheless I will do a proper batrep on Saturday's amazing event in Rochester.

 

As the Juggler will attest to, I have always been a Zed Swarm advocate and having lost at two final tables I almost ended up going that way on Saturday. However, as random chance would dictate I had three lists prepared and written up, it was decided that I was going to run Chihuahua Storm.

 

5x GSP + AWTP + CR + Adaptability + Crack Shot + AT

 

When 5-1 in swiss,  faced (4) IMP Aces (3) of which with Poppa Palpy. (1) Super Derp/PoPo Platter and a standard Triple Toiletseat with Plasmas & Robert A. Fett esq. Only loss was a close match to one of the Palpy/Ace 60-43

 

In Top 8 vs Kelvin it was all A-wings all the time, he ran Raging Tycho w/Prockets, Super Jake w/Prockets and (2) Protius type A's

 

In Top 4 vs Dany faced double Lothal Rebs w/FCS accompanied by Biggy Fries Darklighter with R4 and IA.

 

In Final vs my pal The Grassman faced his Triple Toiletseat sans Fett.

 

A great day for the A-wing and the Rebellion!

Would you feel safe running an anti-Acewing list and just crossing your fingers and hoping not to get screwed by facing U-Boats? Did you get lucky with pairings or were there actually not that many U-Boat players?

There were a lot of uboats, but TBH it was a very well spread field. Palp Aces were probably the most popular, followed by scum with some form of Uboat involved. 

 

I faced 3 People with Uboats in some fashion and was flying a variant myself.

Given I'm partial to Rebel swarms my TalaBand would do better v Toiletseats but I will say I had to gut out the W's vs the Toiletseats. There were Toiletseats a plenty in the field but the draw is what the draw is, simply be the better pilot and get favorable dice results.

There was at least one Dash Rendar in the field that was hoping you'd get the Z's out on the mat again... :P

 

There's always Toronto again.  Like I said; you bring the Z's, I'll bring the coffees.  See you in the parking lot at dawn!

Well there goes my 59 point VI Navigator Proton Bomb Navigator Imperial Boba. Lol Autoblaster Cannon.

I've done alright with Atanni Mindlink Brobots against U-Boats. With Feedback Array I have decent anti-Soontir also.

Do you think running triple U-Boat with 3 Feedback Arrays instead of 3 Extra Munitions is a good idea? Should autowin against Palp aces, and 3 torps should be enough for the mirror matchup.

This is my preferred version of the boats. So strong against aces. The big problem is making it to the top. When you run into other Uboat lists they have twice the firepower you do and can usually beat you down faster since you are out of torps once you kill the first boat in round one of combat.

The mirror matchup could really do with some analyzing. How many torps do you actually need? Edited by ParaGoomba Slayer

PG Slayer: I think two U-Boats and something else gives more options than a straight 3x toilet seat list. the mirror  will come down to who has initiative and who can deny actions imo. im a fan of Feedback Array right now. Its great vs imp-aces and pretty solid against most popular lists out there.

im running two U-Boats with two cheap headhunters and im liking my chances vs a 3 scout list. I run feedback array on all my ships, but thats because imp-aces is popular at my LGS.

I have most of the results from Rochester, hopefully someone can fill in the last two lists, I'm not sure of the exact lists on those tables as their games ended before mine. Apologies if there are any errors, I'm doing this off the top of my head for the lists I didn't actually face.

 

 

Champ: Gerry Russell (7th Swiss) – 5x A-wing + Test pilot + crackshot + adaptability + AT + Crackshot + Chardaan

 

Runner up: Johnathan Grasser (1st Swiss) - 3x JM5k + Plasma Torp + EM + Deadeye + R4 + GC Top 4:

Dany Laberge (3rd Swiss)  - 2x Lothal rebel + FCS; Biggs + R4-D6 + IA

Evan Cameron (4th Swiss) – Dengar + PTL + Unhinged + K4 + Glitter + Punshing1 + EU; Latts Razzi + 4LOM+Gunner + Bossk

 

Top 8:

Kelvin Lau (2nd Swiss) – Tycho + Rage + PTL + test pilot + Prockets + AT; Jake + VI + PTL + test pilot + Prockets + AT; 2x prototype + ChardaanNicholas Gardner (5th Swiss) -  Palob + adaptability + ion turret; Mandalorian Mercenary + deadeye + dengar + homing missiles + slave 1 + EM + GC, 4-LOM + adaptability + Zuckuss + Mist Hunter + tractor

Graham Schofield (6th Swiss) – Whisper + ??, Sigma x2 + ??

Wade Kline (8th Swiss) - Inquisitor + ??; OGP + Palp; Wampa; ??

These standings are correct. The post on the first page of this thread for this tournament is messed up.

I think you could get away with 2 Feedback 32 point Plasma Overclocked Torp boats, and one 35 point Proton Torpedo R4 Agromech one with Boba and Extra Munitions. 99 points.

 

What is your list by the way?

thats my current list. I was previously running overclocked on both scouts and outlaw tech on the scout wout fett crew. I liked that build but i think this one with R4's has more consistent damage output and maximizes ur odds of getting a crit thru with the proton torps.


IM tinkering with running a cheap PS3 misthunter in place of the headhunters, i think that may help vs tanky rebel style squads but i am liking the cheap blockers right now and 4 feedback array hurts imp ace/palp-ace sqauds which are popular at my LGS..
