A rarity - an X-Wing battle report!
Small local tournament, nothing major and with my usual no hope of actually winning anything (because it's X-Wing, not Attack Wing) I went along... to have "Fun". I know... strange...
So, without further ado, the list I chose to run on the day:
Norra Wexley (41) :
ARC-170 (29), R2-D2 (4), Push the Limit (3), Kyle Katarn (3), Alliance Overhaul (0), Vectored Thrusters (2)
Ten Numb (41) :
B-Wing (31), “Mangler” Cannon (4), Seismic Torpedo (2), Veteran Instincts (1), B-Wing/E2 (1), Jan Ors (2)
Green Squadron Pilot (18) :
A-Wing (19), A-Wing Test Pilot (0), Chardaan Refit (-2), Crack Shot (1), Adaptability (0)
The idea is for Norra to get stressed each turn, then using Kyle's ability in conjunction with Jan to get an Evade, Focus and possible Target Lock each turn.
Ten was there to deal with any unshielded Imperial/Scum fighters (auto-crits with the Mangler Cannon) so was hoping to see Fenn Rau on the board tonight...
The A-Wing is there just to run around getting in everybody's way, hopefully blocking a bit to cause the opponent to lose some actions!
So, onto the first game of the day, versus Imperials, a Defender, Pure Sabacc and Quickdraw:
So game one - a loss 100-0.
Onto the next game vs Scum, Dengar and two Y-Wings with TLT's...
Not an awful start to the game, I kept the majority of my ships well
away from the Y's to start with - those TLT's worried me so I was
playing it carefully.
Dengar and TLT's finished off Ten which left the field of play looking a little like this:
Last game of the day, versus Imperials again, this time two Defenders with Ion Cannons and the title, and a shuttle with a tractor beam...
Norra ended up in an awful position, thrown on top of a rock and then essentially held there for three turns, being ripped apart by everything and multiple hits from the Asteroid...
The A-Wing managed to get no hits on its last attack before being mauled by the Defenders:
Nicely upheld my completely beaten record in X-Wing, I think I'm now 2-9 overall.
I still really enjoyed the day, everyone was in good spirits and a friendly atmosphere...
This is the position Norra ended up in, sums the day up but hey-ho!:
The ARC-170's though... I may have to get me another on of those... very impressed...
Anyway, thanks for having a look and hope you enjoyed my quick little write-up!
