@BrobaFett I summon thee!

So yes, Thrawn 2-ship CAN do well competitively, but you knew that already.

yeah! and I don't know how yet. I would like to see a game and also try it myself. That's something I think we may discuss about. Almost everyone agree about last wave bringing balance to the activation madness and SAd being key but there are only three "new" cards there: Thrawn, Brunson and Pryce.

And at UK Nationals we had a double ISD that only get use from a Kuat as new stuff (you could even make the same list with an ISD-1 with Tua, only loosing ER what makes me think why it didn't reach a top before Avenger's nerf).

Thrawn 2-ship in short (this version at least):

- Pryce on ISD gives GREAT control over the opening of the battle. You must practice this to feel how it works.

- Thrawn means your 2 ships are supercharged. Squad and Nav very often together, the best command in the game. Plus slicing you isn't really that great.

- Catching a Brunson Quasar with boosted comms thats' always navigating... it's harder that you'd think.

- The squads pack a huge punch, and they will do so every round of the game.

- Last/first with squads, pryce ISD... it's a total game changer.

- You pack 400 points of power into just 2 activations. Sure, it's limiting, but it's also very empowering.

Best of all: it's really different and really FUN!

That VSDII really hits hard..  D-caps, Heavy Ions, Gunnery Tteams + Intensify firepower + tokens from the Gozanti.. 

Hougaard also played flawlessly, and people picking his solar corona obejctive add'd to that..

And you were not playing against each other? Was it this extreme with so many 10-1 wins that you were always paired away?

Also: 38 is for sure a nice statement. And let me guess. The 8 points were the first round from a bye ?.

@Tokra I don't think there were any byes. But not sure.

I lost my ISD the first game, plus he had a HH lifeboat, so no tabling. A freak Nym strike and later an insane unmodified dice roll conspired against me. But I took a risk and was punished for it. Call it greed if u will ?

So with this small win to start with was below the top until the very last game, when the top 3-0 players faced off in table 1 while I was on table 2.

Anyway. Turns out the Rieekan aceholes player on the top table had missed the sadv FAQ, so that caused his Yavaris to die 1 round early and it fell apart for him... If only he'd won 6-5 I would have won Nordics ?

As i said, i found it unusally. But this happens in Aramda from time to time (one reason i prefer one extra round over a cut).

Rieekan aceholes player... Somehow this sound way to close to an real insult. I would not be suprissed when this ends on the filter really soon :P.
