Heaver, Yun and Bonar 14-16! Awesome!

Congrats to top 5: Tom, James, Charles, Ira, Mario!

Looks like Chris Allen, beating Paul in round 1, only won two more. 54th.

Sable Griffon (Mark Fletcher, S&V) doing well, 21st.

Gold squadron just reported that the top table went to final salvo with only a single damage being done in the game before time.

 

 

Anyone else pretty upset about this? Obviously I'm not there so I have no clue what really happened, but this for sure is not what I want from this game.

Rebel regen for you. Also, 1 game doesn't mean anything

 

Then something needs to be done about regen. Or something needs to be done to assure players engage and stay engaged. There is no excuse for a game to appear as if it is in turn 3 after 75 minutes of gameplay at the top table of the highest level event for said game.

 

Note I am not upset with the players. They likely saw no good engagement opportunity, and, as they are at the top table, decided to take their chances on the salvo with a good MOV guaranteed either way. FFG did a good job of ridding the game of the silly modified wins, but I don't think they are done yet if things like this are still possible.

 

One of the players was flying triple Defenders. I guess something should be done about Rebel regen AND Imperial agility.

  • 96pt Mindlink Fangaroo
  • Fenn Rau (32) + Mindlink + title + AT
  • Old Teroch (30) + Mindlink title + AT
  • Manaroo (34) + Attanni Mindlink + K4 + Unhinged + Feedback
Somebody is flying my favorite list. Go buddy Go!!!

He's 4-1

What with the 4-point bid?

 

To elaborate even further:

In a Fangaroo mirror match, the init makes so much difference because of the Manaroo, Palob and Teroch triggers in combination with mindlink. Player with init chooses to go 2nd, as they get postional advantage (hello there Teroch/Fenn), but also forces the other player to move all of their tokens before any of your triggers. This allows Teroch and Palob to have maximum impact, while your opponents triggers are significantly neutered (steal a token off Fenn? It's okay, Manaroo will throw one back).

Anyone who wants to know more about Mindlink - specifically mindlink Fangaroo have a listen to the last couple of 186th Squadron Podcast, we've been banging on about it for a while!

 

 

 

Shhhhh, no one really wants to know. Might as well just delete that post

I suppose we should also nerf the things that can one-shot defenders and regen guys like Mr. Horn *cough* *Bossk* *cough*. Might as well just nerf the whole game while we're at it. Naked Academy Pilots for everyone! ;)

That's probably Charlie (currently 3rd), he's been practicing with Ryad, Vessery and a Glaive (all with x7 and crack shot) since he lost to that exact list in the final of the Belgian national.

Remi Dumais placed 10th today,

I play once in a while against him, always fun and challenging.

 

He's using Palp Shuttle with OL, Inq, Wampa - a variant of a list I played before Omega and Inquisitor were available - Palp shuttle, jax, colzet and wamp.

I much prefer a 4th ship instead of double defenders or whisper/soontir/or whatever ace we often saw with Palp shuttle.

So, what's the RonCon Special? Or will we see that tomorrow?

I asked pretty much the same question earlier. Nobody answered... :(

 

I saw your post which is why I brought it up again.:P

Its probably not even a real list. It's probably just some inside joke that everyone but us is in on. They're all probably laughing at us right now as we try to figure out what it is...

Isn't that the Asajj + 2 TLT Ys list Paul Heaver is flying? NonRonCon being Miranda, Braylen, Biggs?
