I mentioned this in another thread, but I took a dual scum firespray list to a store championship in 2015 right after wave 6 came out. I had practiced 50 games on vassal with it and went 43-7 or something crazy like that.

Went 2-2 at the sc and got 10th place.

Inquisitor with PTL, AT, title

Wampa

standard OL

palp shuttle before nerf

went 3-3 at local Regionals, nothing could punch through X7s

matter of a fact, my losses were against X7s.

I've never flown anything with 2 attack dice since.

Triple Jumpmasters (pre-Deadeye nerf). Somehow that list never clicked with me, so my win/loss ratio is about 50-50. The first tournament I went to with it I did terrible: 2-1, barely managing both wins (20-30 MoV difference in both).

 

 

It's quite weird come to think about it,  as nowadays I'm flying Rau boats and having tons of fun with it.

Colonel Vessery
TIE/D
Tractor Beam
Veteran Instincts
Twin Ion Engine Mk.II

"Omega Leader"
Juke
Comm Relay

Countess Ryad
TIE/x7
Push The Limit
Twin Ion Engine Mk.II

 

It was going great at first. I'd won about 20 games 100-0 with this in practice.
Took it to tournament and won my first 3 games and found myself in 2nd place out of 32.
Lost the last 2 0-100, and dropped down to 16th.

FIVE. CARTEL. MARAUDE...ohwait, no, not that one.

Worst result I ever had at a tournament was flying a Luke/Han list following Wave 5. Finished dead last with zero wins. Lone Wolf R2-D2 Engine Upgrade Luke naively sounded like a good idea in theory, but...

2nd worse result was a Chewie/Leebo list. I've really struggled with 2 ship lists it seems.

E-Wing: · Corran Horn (35)
Push The Limit (3)
· R2-D2 (4)
Engine Upgrade (4)
A-Wing: Green Squadron Pilot (19)
Crack Shot (1)
Chardaan Refit (-2)
A-Wing Test Pilot (0)
Adaptability (Increase) (0)
A-Wing: Green Squadron Pilot (19)
Crack Shot (1)

A-Wing: Green Squadron Pilot (19)
Crack Shot (1)
Chardaan Refit (-2)
A-Wing Test Pilot (0)
Adaptability (Increase) (0)
TOTAL 100

Taken this list a while back to two events, twice in 4 months; went 2-0 first two games then dropped the last three 0-3. Second tourney barely went 2-0 (low mov) then 0-3. What? Horn got miraculously one shotted twice each event in two of the losses pre-double-tap. I'm too anxious to run that fun squad again I'm afraid.

While I've normally had good luck, I took a Corran + 2 b-wings list to a 12 person tournament and, in my first match, failed to kill a single ship, despite focus ire from all 3 ships on a bumped A-wing at range 1 over several turns.

At the Queensland (Australia) regionals this year, me and a bunch of fellas from our FLGS went to compete, and they essentially had the bottom table to themselves the whole time...

I took the following to a store championship:

2x Cartel Spacers w/ title and Ion cannon

Talonboom Cobra w/ Engine, and PTL

and N'Dru w/Lonewolf, Glittertim, Cluster Missiles and Chips.

Finished dead last. 0-4 with 100 MOV.   Killed 2 ships in 4 games, and one was a simultaneous fire after I was already dead.

If you switch Inky out for Jax that match up becomes pretty easy.

Tomax Bren, Crackshot, Proton Torp, IPM

Maarek Steele, Predator, X7, Stealth Device

Zeta Leader, Juke, Comm Relay

I always bring a different list to tournaments and this one just felt bad, despite going 4-3. Tomax did get to ion a y-wing off the board, but he just dies so fast. I have seen Tomax place in top 16's, but I have no idea how that happens. X7 Defenders with stealth device were so broken before the nerf.

I've only participated in one tournament, so I've only had one tournament list, and it didn't perform spectacularly by any means. My first game was a victory, but it went down hill from there.

Hera Syndulla- Ghost, Accuracy Corrector, Autoblaster, and Intelligence Agent

Sabine Wren- Phantom, Jan Ors and some EPT I can't remember for sure.

Kyle Katarn- Moldy Crow, Recon Specialist, Dorsal Turret

Brobots were murder to this list....  Zuckuss died hard in the first game though.

Monster! After all those losses, why try so hard.

Asajj Ventress+Fenn+Hwy Scyk..no mindlink.. Went so close to making Parattani but lacked my cards and ships to do so, this was before it was a thing. Got 23rd out of 60 or something. Got just crushed so easily, it was still before Manaroo and Palp nerf. 

Alpha strikes and Palp aces get me big time. All tho I was very pleased with Asajj always the last ship to fall down. Still my favorite out of many other ships.

rexlar (defender) -x7, adaptability

merek steel(defender) - x7, vet instincts

Tomax bren (tie bomber) - tie shuttle, mkii ion engines, cool hand, fleet officer, system officer

 

When preparing for a local small tourney managed to get pretty good with keeping tomax in range to fully buff rex and 8 out of 10 buff merek too, doing well enough to trigger rexs pilot ability at least once every game.

Que the day of the the tourney, I'm doing great, then second last day I go up against a tie crack swarm, loose merek early but almost manage to claw back a draw, fail by 1 hull point to take out the last tie needed to do so.

But hey it's still good I'm in contention for second as long as I win the final game, and it's against a triple t70 list so I am confident I stand a good chance.
However first turn  I manage to land  merek and tomax on rocks, damaging merek, and forget t70's have 1 forwards so kturn rexlar a turn early right in front of all 3 t70's facing the wrong way, que merek dying in one salvo and rexlar loosing a shield.
Next turn I clip another **** rock with rexlar loosing a second shield then being once again shot off the board, tomax sends the next 3 turns running away from 3 angry undamaged t70's, cliping another roid along the way doing that extra damage which allows them to kill him before time is called.

I went from a solid chance at 2nd place to 3rd last in 1 stupid turn :(

I took Biggs/Wes/Corran to my 2016 regionals. I was going in undefeated in 15 pratice games, against some pretty good local players, so I thought I'd be in with a chance of making the cut. I'd even given them a nice green squadron paintjob!

I spent most of the day in the over-flow room of shame upstairs, where only the lowliest MoV children were sent to play with their X-wings. 1-5. A great lesson in expectations!

I've taken double Ghost to tournaments twice, once with TLTs, and once with ABTs + ABT Y-wing.  Our local store tournaments usually consist of a lot of jank.

 

This was right after Protectorates came out.  Faced a few Fearlessness swarms.  Let me tell you, the VCX with that rear arc they can't do anything with against fearlessness is pretty scary.
