😂 Ha!

I think this match-up is going to be tough for Mhd. One thing that wasn't mentioned in the write-up that I think will be critical is Squall on Moose's Quasar. That fact, combined with going 1st and Mhd not having Intel, means that Moose is going to be able to throw in Mauler where he's going to do most harm and, together with Valen, tie up Mhd's squads into bunches so they can't concentrate fire. Maarek and Morna can then do what they want and pick off targets in priority order. I think the squad fight will be over pretty quick. 

A lot of attention is given to Yavaris and Demolisher but I actually think Squall is one the best titles in the game. So powerful for an alpha strike - especially with slower ships like Morna - and gives nuisance squads like Mauler and Ciena incredible reach to get in where they can be most disruptive. Mhd's ships don't have much in the way of flak so hiding with the ships isn't going to help much either. That's the strategy I used to beat @BrobaFett's 2-ship in the Vassal Autumn Tourney but only because Broba had go for a big win to make the cut. Starting at level-pegging I don't think I'd have been able to do that. 

All comments above are obviously purely based on the list match-up and I'm not making any call on the skill of either player :) - but if Mhd can pull off a win here I'll be very impressed!

@PartyPotato and I are scheduled to play 6am CST / midday GMT tomorrow! 

Will I be putting the 'Kite' in Zamalekite and chip away at Potato's ships for victory? Or will it be party over for me as my ships get turned into mash?! 

 

Guess I've got to get an article out quick.

Throw me the lists, I'll do my intense and deeply concerned dive into the meta, their lists, intense strategy analysis...

Or I'll make it up and throw it at the wall, haha.

I'm very interested to see what you think my chances of keeping the last Nebulon B and Pelta in the tournament around a bit longer are :)

I should really get mega bonus theming points for having Leia on Tantive IV right?

Ooooh we disagree. Biggs got his USA flag out and I brought my EU flag. (Still have one!)

fantastic that you still have one. keep hold of it 🙂

Other than that, with Daves record over the last few months, it wont be easy to beat him.

Ever watch Return of the Jedi and think "those angry space triangles should be winning!"?

Ever watch Star Trek IV and think "they should murder that space whale and be done with it"?

Ever wish someone made a bizarro R-rated cartoon involving anthropomorphized letters where M's and a J slaughtered hapless X's?

If so, tune in for @clontroper5 vs CyborgNinja Saturday 1/26 at 10pm EST

How? They couldn’t get anywhere near them! 

Do not question the Trek!

(Also, I’m back from my holidays so ready to step in as needed)
