Well, it's that time again. Tuesday night. X-Wing night. Welcome back.
Tonight, we had a Cody, Chris, Josh, Myself, and Brandon. Oh, and we had a new player, little Nikoli (If I mispelled that Brandon can shoot me later). I managed to play two games tonight; Cody and Josh played one... took them almost (actuall maybe it took them actually) three hours to play. It was Cody's badd ass Hounds Tooth list versus Josh's Tie swarm. I have to give credit; what little of that game that I saw was impressive. I can't report much beyond that because I didn't get to watch it. What I will say is that it started around 630 and was still going at 9 when I left.
I played no leageue games tonight but I will play mine against James soon, I am sure.
I played my first game against Chris tonight. I was running a list that took me some time to build but I rather liked it. It was initially the hawk, a b-wing, and a z-95 (z-wing lol, I almost called a z-wing but then again it's not inaccurate :D) It was a against pancakes that was not to dissimilar from my own pancakes. I have to say, I actually liked the looks of the list and might work on a version if my own but it will be a while. Anyway, Chris flew pretty good with his list. We made it a down to the wire game. First, I dropped the z-wing to run an A-wing. It was a fun choice and a great game. It ended up being my B-wing versus his Falcon. When I say down to the wire I mean it was my one hull versus his one hull and what won it was the fact that I was a PS 7 blasting away with 4 red versus his 1 evade token and 1 evade dice.
My second game was against young Nikoli. He was running 4 A-wings with Prockets and a couple with Rage and all with Guidance chips. It was versus the same list of Hawk, B-Wing, and A-Wing. I don't want to release the details of the list just yet because I can't decide if I'm going to continue to fly it or not and I like the idea of surprise :D. Nikoli has alot of heart and I am proud of him. He had fun and played well. We didn't get to finish because of time. I hope he gets to continue to come and play. He will learn fast and I think he will be a good player.
We meet every Tuesday at G2K, 6pm to 9pm. And we are setup to meet at Mulligan's on Saturday's. 12pm to 5pm. I am not sure if it's every Saturday but it is a start. If you aren't sure come check out Shadow Squadron or TriCities Syndicate on facebook. If you want to play come join us and test your mettle. Hope to see you guys soon.
