The Durandal Initiative: We're Back

Recommended Posts

@Palanthas I submitted my app for Worlds last night.... then I looked at the dates. :( Unfortunately, the Family and I already have plane tickets purchased to visit our new nephew in Washington that same week. If the tourney was on the weekend I might be able to make it but Wed and Thurs just isn't going to be possible from me. I was extremely bummed out when I saw that.

As for the final list, here it is in all it's glory:

Name: Sloan CumKuat Avenger 2.0
Faction: Imperial
Commander: Admiral Sloane

Assault: Advanced Gunnery
Defense: Capture the VIP
Navigation: Superior Positions

ISD Kuat Refit (112)
• Governor Pryce (7)
• Darth Vader (3)
• Electronic Countermeasures (7)
• Leading Shots (4)
• External Racks (3)
• Avenger (5)
= 141 Points

Quasar Fire I (54)
• Admiral Sloane (24)
• Captain Brunson (5)
• Flight Controllers (6)
• Boosted Comms (4)
= 93 Points

Gozanti Cruisers (23)
• Comms Net (2)
= 25 Points

Squadrons:
• Howlrunner (16)
• Mauler Mithel (15)
• Colonel Jendon (20)
• Maarek Stele (21)
• Valen Rudor (13)
• Saber Squadron (12)
• Ciena Ree (17)
• TIE Fighter Squadron (8)
= 122 Points

Total Points: 381

I'm also going to try and post a write up of my tournament experience tonight. Hopefully, I'll be able to find the time once the kids are in bed. Stay tuned...

Hello all,

@durandal343 and I have been on a short break post Regionals but we're working on some more stuff that we hope to start bringing out next week. As I was lucky enough to get a reserved ticket to Worlds he's going to be helping me prep by destroying all my pretty ships.

On another note stay tuned for a special announcement as it's looking like we'll be able to offer everyone a "cross over" episode with the Armchair Admiral guys. @Andydriver have been working on a plan to stream a match tomorrow evening. So for the first time ever we'll be putting on a Durandal Initiative vs Armchair Admirals friendly match! We're pretty excited.

LOL! @durandal343 and I were just talking about the Sloan fleet you've been fielding in your Worlds Prep vids... It looks terrible. Like, terrible to be sitting across from it. Also, looks like we have very similar squads. It's going to be a fighter squadron blood bath!

Also, full disclosure, I've never played against another Sloan fleet before so this will be a learning experience for me.

You're in for a treat then lol, Sloane is so evil.  It'll be an epic battle!

Alright! We got a special match for you today. Long time supporter of the channel @teeseeuu was kind enough to meet up with me on Tabletop Simulator for a friendly match.

 

Watch me get owned by easy mode fleet! ;)

Seriously, great match, scary squad wing

For future streams, is there any way you can lower the dice cam?  It's far enough up that the glare from the light washes out the icons most of the time, and when it doesn't the dice icons are too small to effectively tell crits from hits.  If not, it's no big deal - just a quality of life improvement that others might like!

Love the feedback! We'll do our best to make an improvement on the dice cam. Just today I setup a new rig for mounting the cameras and the lights so it should improve. Tonight, however, we'll be at @durandal343 house and his setup is a little different than mine so it might not be a problem at all. Let us know in the comments and we'll do what we can on the fly.

Just looked at our vid from last night and yeah, I'll have to do something about that.  I couldn't tell what was on the die faces at all.  I had the contrast/etc all set up so you could and I'm wondering if it's my new fancy dice that are causing a problem.  Either way it was basically useless to have the camera except to count how many dice were used :)
