I decided to break off and bring the ships through the rocks. Edit: Sorry, noticed you had 2 mod wins, and so were also on 21 points. I'm also losing Palp way too early. Positioning is key to success in X-Wing, and having the ability to boost into new places is an extremely powerful option. I burned him down quickly having not fired a torpedo, which was a huge achievement for me, then I finished off the Zuckuss scout, and finally closed out the last one for the full win, right as time was called starting to see a theme here? Registration is required so that we can organise to have even numbers on each side.
Edited May 9, 2016 by quasistellar If you went 5-1 you should be on 25 tournament points. At the beginning of the game, Agent Kallus selects his target and will doggedly pursue them. Yeah, I don't understand that rule either. Bring a squad list with you or come with enough time to write one out, late players will be penalised. Games Laboratory is proud to present the X-Wing Miniatures Store Championships! Each round will either be a standard tournament format game with extra conditions, or a scenario mission. I had started on the Zuckuss ship but he separated his ships and an opportunity came up where the Plasma scout was isolated.
We were actually matched up round 2, but due to a scoring mix up, pairings were reset and we had different opponents, but here we were again 2 rounds later. Swiss Rounds according to official Fantasy Flight Games Tournament Organisation guidelines. Though I won that won flying a rebel list that I was too chicken to bring with the prospect of U-boats staring me in the face, so I was in a similar boat to you in flying imperials as an alternate to my usual lists probably why I forgot to decloak after the long day Saturday. Flying a full health Carnor Jax off the board in the first round, as I could have had a better chance to clean up 2v3, and the final round taking the boost with Carnor was not the wise choice. I got aggressive early and dove all ships into his scouts. I had a really strong start, keeping my Interceptors untouched while pegging both Carnor and The Inquisitor for 2 damage each, and Soontir with 1 damage before I lost the shuttle. I was able to get my shuttle into range 1 of 2 to nto take the full barrage of torpedoes, but he was still able to burn the shuttle quickly.
As it was, 2 tables drew and took the risk and all four that drew made it in because the rest played. What's more, X-Wing's quick-to-learn ruleset establishes the foundation for a system that can be expanded with your favorite ships and characters from the Star Wars universe. After I took out his shuttle, I had both my interceptors at 1 hull each and the shuttle bleeding as well. I haven't actually flown it yet, but it seems like it would be great in the current meta. I had a much less impressive day than you ending at 3-3, with one of those wins being a modified by a single squad point and in the last round I would end up losing in yet another modified win match by a single squad point. As to your experience, Vayn, it's a shame that the tournament rounds and the one or two draws put you out of the cut! After 2-3 turns of blocking him and denying actions with Carnor, and setting up shots with Soontir, I did a grand total of 0 damage to him.
Moral of the story is I made 2 critical mistakes that cost me the cut. I drew him through the rocks, and the turn when time was called, Mike unfortunately grazed a rock with Carnor, and took damage that destroyed him. It's great that you're focusing on the play issues rather than a gray rants! I lost Carnor the following turn, and chased Dengar for a couple turns with Soontir, knowing that if I got him at half health I would at least get a modified win. I pegged him for the last hull I needed right at time, and got another modified win. So there is some conciliation for sure, sounds like a good agreement! The Florida Regional was held at Get Your Fun On in West Melbourne, which is my home store! I was able to put some damage into Wedge, but after 3 or 4 more turns of shooting, I did 0 damage to him, due to token stripping from Wes and just trying to stay out of R1-R2 of the other ships. Also a big shout out to the shop Get Your Fun On, the Marshals one of them being my fiancée, I know, I know, how lucky am I? Featuring stunningly detailed and painted miniatures, X-Wing recreates exciting Star Wars space combat throughout its several included scenarios.
I roll 1 evade and 3 blanks, turned one for autothrusters, received another stress so now I was a sitting duck. Hopefully he will be able to go to Nationals to represent the state of Florida. They chose the shuttle, and to no surprise burned it very quickly. I baited his ships towards my shuttle while I sent both of mine to his. If they all played, all the winners would be in and the losers would be in the 4-2 group banking on MoV to get in.
I did a full stop and my opponent must have not seen it coming because he bumps The Inquisitor into me. The turn after setting up a nice block on Soontir with Carnor, I was near the board edge and wanted to stay aggressive, so decided to turn sharp towards the board edge you know where this is going. He blanks out, and draws a direct hit, essentially doing 5 damage in one shot. If I can keep him long enough, he helps punch those crits through when I can afford an offense mod. Every player needs one of these in their kit, and eight skilled pilots will leave with one in their possession! If they went 4-1-1 they should be, as you say, on 21 tournament points. Great report, I was there was well and it was a really great event.
I definitely know the pain of flying off the board at a major event, at the Get Your Fun On Store Championship in the first round I misjudged my movement by a couple millimeters and flew Poe Dameron off the table while running to regen shields. He took a target lock with Dengar, and rolls 3 natural crits and rerolls another hit. I was hoping for another set of regionals dice to complete my set from last year but with my lack of practice, and much less luck in matchups than last year, it wasn't meant to be. Staying at R2 out of arc tokened up would have benefited me more, and keeping both ships against a half health Dengar would have given me the full win. Yea they were talking about you on the stream, mentioning you're fairly new to the game? He had the initiative bid and he passed. I need some practice flying The Inquisitor and I might consider it.
