Can't quite remember the year, I think it was 2015 but they had a regional in Boise, ID. It only had around 35 players.

The 16-17 regional in Boise had 35 players. Unfortunately for the Idaho region, it doesn't get a whole lot of foot traffic in the way of hobby gamers. Boba Rick is a local though, he's fun to play.

Palp takes another one 

 

Fresno Regional won by Vader palp Shuttle QD(?)

 

beating out Blair’s 7z swarm 

This meta between metas feels like the most meta meta to the point that I am not even sure what meta means anymore. Game is in a pretty good place.

That is one of the saddest top 8's I've ever seen.

First no imperials at all.

Second look at alllll the repeat pilots in the 8 lists!

4 Asajj, 3 Fenn, 2 Thweek, and 2 Thugs for Scum. 2 Dash, 2 Lowhhrick, and 2 Wullffwarro for Rebels. 

It’s only 3 Assaj.  It is disappointing that there are no Imperial lists but all of these lists are kind of different so it’s not like 6 Parattanni, 1 Dengaroo and a Heragator. 

To have Imperial lists you need people to be willing to fly Imperial, which some meta’s just won’t do while others will be jam packed full of them. 

I like Empire a lot and want to see them do well but there is still a lot of creativity in these lists I feel.

From what I've seen, little to no difference than he was before. He can be wasted on a roll, but that seems to still be enough after that last FAQ.

Three flavors:

Duncan's List: PS11 QD, Yorr Palp, PTL Inq. Makes Inquistor dangerous. Used mostly on defense.

Palpoons: PS11 QD, Vader Harpoon Chips, OGP. Used mostly on defense to keep Vader alive and to proc harps

Kylo Stuff: Proc Emo stuff or keep vader alive.

Will Palp + 3 agility be enough to survive this hyper offensive Wave 12?  I think probably yes, but No against someone who can corrdty fly gunboats. And definitely No if someone cracks the Big Sexy Bomber list.

Well...lists like this require consistent decision making. Your using 2 small base primary arc ships against the field. Duncan's list flown well is insanely high skill. Palpoons is sketchy because Vader can be destroyed in a heart beat without autothrusters. Its also super fragile with Vader not able to control range perfectly without Engine Upgrade and Quickdraw not using LWF.  

No idea what Wave 12 will bring but rest assured stress stuff will arise with the stress bug which will make Yorr even more jmportant, Heaver or Eide will break minds with 15-20 pt coordinate, and spoiler alert Paratanni and Palp Aces will still be solid probably. The kylo silencer is going to PS0 alot of PS11 Quickdraws and Vaders so theres that I guess.

FAA and Threat tracker and low cost coordinate will throw a wrench in the usual PS War escalation.

Bold Prediction: There will be degenerate ion too.

The sad state of Imperials continues i see. 

Considering this very thread has two Regionals recorded victories for the Empire, the evidence is pointing to that sad state being a thing of the past. True, that's only two data points, but we had a huge upset in the last FAQ and we got a double wave about to drop. I'm not sure how this is all gonna shake out, but I feel pretty good that the Imps will be doing better than they had most of this year.

How is Palp used nowadays post nerf?

I won the Fresno regional with Palpoons (Vader and QD at PS 11).  I think I only used palpatine on defense a handful of times the whole tournament.  Mostly used him to push through crits to trigger harpoon or to just maul ships that had their shields stripped.

Congrats on the win! That last game was awesome to watch! May I ask how your other matches went? Did the Imperial alpha strike pretty much win your games outright? Or were they more drawn out with Vader cleaning up house after the dust settled.
