Back home,

Tired but happy. Sport resume before bathroom nad Bed

My noble opponents sport vershions od lists (morze acurate post will made tommorow)

Riekan aceholes 5-6 loss

Motti Double ISD+Glad 10-1 massacre (scored 655 mov!)

Solane Aceholes 8-3 win

Polish 2017 Champion 8-3 win

UE Champion 7-4 loss 

This give me 35 pst and allow to Play in Cut first time in my life.

In semifinals I meet... UE champion. Was so close to high win but made mistake that cost me victory. 

Thx for @Wawa666 for excelent organisation. Evrything was well prepared. Each player get their list printed to show opponent, huge list of fail achivements. Only tuning I could suggest for the future to print fail list on back of the fleet list. I miss my oportunity to grab frige with Han brelock for my dead black squadron

 

Cheers

Even more tired and even more happy I suppose. My run was:

1. Thrawn ISD (with Ruthless Strategists) + Glad (Ruthless Strategists and Racks) + 2x Gozantis + some bombers 9:2 win

2. Motti triple Victory (Warlord and capacitors), Gozanti, double TIE adv, Soontir and Mauler 10:1 win

3. Dodonna HMC80 + Yavaris + 2 flottilas (Adar, Toryn) + the usual rebel aces/bwings 10:1 win

4. Raddus Profundity + Garel's Honor (inside) + Corvette + rogues (2xYT2400, Rogue sq, Hera, Tycho, Shara) 7:4 win

5. Motti Victory (Warlord, Kallus, Ruthless strategists), Quasar II (Ruthless strategists), 2x Gozantis,  11(!) squadrons (Dengar, Valen, Tempest, Rhymer, 7 Bombers) 7:4 win

Semi-final - rematch of the 5th swiss game, 8:3 win but the result is misleading - NairoD learned a lot, adapted and got close to winning this one

Final: Jerjerrod Quasar II (Ruthless strategists again!), Raider (with Kallus), Arquittens, 2x Gozantis, 12(!!!) squadrons (Jumpmaster, Mauler, Lambda, Tempest, 8 Bombers) 9:2 win

It appears that the news of Sloane's demise were somewhat premature ;). In fact, having played her a year ago and again this weekend I felt she's more powerful than ever, though she is less flexible and requires careful play. People tend to focus on all the nerfs that affected her but typically neglect to see all the subtle changes that made her stronger. Anyway, I'm very happy that I could repeat my performance from Euros with a very different list (and a different faction to boot!). I also have @Ginkapo to thank for sparking my interest in Sloane once more.

Totally forgot about that little bugger. So, it was 12 squadrons 3 times in a row.... Wow.

Anyway, my list was:

Faction: Galactic Empire
Points: 396/400

Commander: Admiral Sloane

Assault Objective: Advanced Gunnery
Defense Objective: Fighter Ambush
Navigation Objective: Superior Positions

 

Imperial II-Class Star Destroyer (120 points)
Avenger  ( 5  points)
-  Governor Pryce  ( 7  points)
-  Flight Controllers  ( 6  points)
-  Expanded Hangar Bay  ( 5  points)
-  Electronic Countermeasures  ( 7  points)
-  Leading Shots  ( 4  points)
= 154 total ship cost

 

Gozanti-class Cruisers (23 points)
= 23 total ship cost

 

[ flagship ] Raider I-Class Corvette (44 points)
-  Admiral Sloane  ( 24  points)
-  Hondo Ohnaka  ( 2  points)
= 70 total ship cost

 

Gozanti-class Cruisers (23 points)
-  Comms Net  ( 2  points)
= 25 total ship cost

 

1 Maarek Steele ( 21 points)
1 Colonel Jendon ( 20 points)
4 TIE Phantom Squadrons ( 56 points)
1 JumpMaster 5000 ( 12 points)
1 "Mauler" Mithel ( 15 points)
= 124 total squadron cost

 

A few thoughts after the tournament:

1. Rebel meta seems to have changed completely over here in Poland. A couple of months ago you couldn't throw a dead cat across the room without it hitting a Raddus somewhere. This time there was only one Raddus in the entire room (and I had the "luck" to face him). Not sure what happened or if it's a trend or just an instance.

2. Rebels in general were less popular than in the past. Just 1/3rd of the rosters were rebel. There were also no rebel lists in top 4, which seems strange. There were [EDIT] 3 rebel lists in top 4 last year and at Euros the finals were also rebel vs rebel.

3. Squadron heavy meta seems to persist. 3 out of 4 lists in top 4 were squadron heavy and the 5th list in swiss was also rebel aces.

4. Imperial squadron lists seem to have shifted completely to mass bombers supported by minimal antisquadron force (typically mauler, tempest and some intel). When facing  stronger squadrons, they rely on two ships with ruthless strategists (typically Quasar II, Demolisher or Warlord) to kill them. If no enemy squadron force is present, they just melt anything that comes their way.
