In the hands of a good player he's still a pain in the *** like he always was, but I guess now with Sloane around he's no longer a no-brainer choice in the competitive scene.

Not just Sloane, you can also counterplay by simply killing multiple ships or squadrons in a single round.

Actually it’s a completely different list.  It has dodonna now

Ah, did he end up going with the Dodonna one? I knew he was play testing that, but didn't know he actually took it.

I know nothing like Jon Snow.

I believe so, he was talking about it having more punch and it’s what I have seen him play in the last couple of weeks

Yeah, Justin took Dodonna.  He's probably been playing it at least two months.  Dodonna has always been a great Rebel bomber commander, so the move was pretty natural.

When you start combining Luke, BCC, and picking the crits with Dodonna, ouch.

Are the range rulers the right length? They are not the same as the ridiculous Euro ones 

Do the Euro ones say European Championship, or Continental Chamionship, or National Championship?

if they're Generically marked, I dare say that GenCon and Euroes would be from the same Stock.

If they are uniquely marked, there is a chance that they were made at a different time and might be a different, more correct (or worse!) length.

Hey guys lets go back to when the game was fine: top6/8 of worlds, top2 of euros and a bastion of regionals all with Rieekan 5 ship mass squadrons was good for the game. 

cmon.  Anyone?  I know there's plenty of you out there. 

I am never going to stop reminding people how nasty and disgusting that was. 

 

Really, why ever did anyone ever say that.

The euro ones don't say anything on other than top x where x is the position (so mine say top 4) FFG and 17

they are completely different markings though

Question, how many players were there last year compared to this year?

Last year there were two flights...one Thursday and one Friday.  Both had around 40ish and they played 3 games and cut to top 16 from both days and then on Saturday the top 32 played 2 games for a total of 5 games and then the top two played from the 5 games.

Thanks! Was there only one flight of 41 this year, or two flight like last year?

I ask because it seems that attendance has dropped for every Star wars game this year at Gencon: 43 for Imperial Assault instead of around 80 last year, 220 for X-Wing instead of 300 and now 41 for Armada instead of around 80... Destiny is pretty high though with around 350 players.

Only one flight this year with a cut to top 4 on Friday.
