North American Championships @ GenCon?

18 posts in this topic

They did a top cut Thursday and played the last last night. My friend @Brigadierblu made the top 16, but lost in the first round to Brian, who won last year. Sadly, there were only 43 players, but some really good ones. 

I would really like to know how the rest of it played out and what percentage of the top 16 was for each faction. 

Anyone care to share?

Here's what i have been able to piece together so far. Anyone able to confirm? Fill in the gaps?

1. Patrick Christians - Mercenary - 6 Ugnaughts, Onar, and IG.

2. Brian Vandergalien - Mercenary - Onar, Elite Weequay, Jabba with Indentured Servant, Greedo, Elite Jawa, BT-1 with Prey on the Weak, Chopper with Headhunter, C-3PO

3. Spencer Albert - Rebel List - Jedi Luke, eRangers, Hera, Gideon, C-3PO, R2-D2, and rSmuggler with RHC.

4. Desmond Miller - Mercenary - 2x eWeequay, Vinto, eJawa, BT, C-3PO, Hera, Gideon, Temporary Alliance, Black Market, and Devious Scheme

I can confirm that list. Brian is an excellent player and won handily against me in the first round after the top 16 cut. 

I was disappointed that we only had 43 people this year when we had well more than that last year. However, I had a blast playing and hope my single ugnaught didn't cause too many hurt feelings. The junk droid was pretty much only there to contest/claim objectives/terminals 😆

I think close to 100, maybe in the 80s.

Could the fact that Nationals are about 2 weeks away have had an affect on attendance this year? I couldn't make Gencon and can't make Nova, but scheduling time off work to travel and the expense meant that I would have only chosen 1 if I could have attended at all.

Is this proximity in scheduling due to the changes implemented by FFG when they split the various Organized Play games across two tracks?

I was 13th with Terro, 2x eJets, Blaise, BT, 000, Cross Training, Rule By Fear, and Zillo.  I lost to Desmond in top 16.

IA tournaments are a blast, shame the only ones I can seem to make are Worlds and Gencon:lol:

Is Spencer Albert the all-knowing @a1bert? Congrats for repping Rebels, either way!

@ryanjamal I was at GenCon but not playing. I was watching the IA games and chatting a bit with Todd Michlitsch.

It was nice to see a good spread of different lists.

I dig the list.  What was your plan for the games?

Not lose?  Generally with agile and Zillo I can weather the storm of ranger/wequay shooting enough to close in and start dropping things.  Focusing on objectives made a big difference since I can't wipe things out while sitting in my deployment zone.

Hey Chum, I like that list too. Can you post the command cards? Imps are so dead in my area that I'll try anything new!
