X-wing:MK Regional Report

 So 60 Players all made it to MK, ready for the regional.

And here we are!

Room is set

Another picture of the Room
My list

Han, Vi, C3P0, R2D2, Title
2 x Blue pilots
Been using it for a while, it is getting to the stage where more counters to large ships are coming out, so this is its test for regional, if it fails I have been working on a back up plan for a little while now

So a quick break down of my games followed by a break down of the top 8 :)

Game 1
Wedge, Marksmanship, R2D2
Horton, Ion Turret
Farlander, PTL, FCS

So a interesting build to go up again, and a quite a straight forward win in the end, with Han just taking range 3 shots and letting the B-wings get into the mix to cause problems
Win 100-22

Han Looking Menacing 

Game 2
Dash, Title, Mango, Lone Wolf, Recon, APL
2x Blue, FCS

Interesting game where Han couldnt hit a Barn door, his blues made mince of mine, without taking much damage back, for some reason I couldnt hit them! and then they hunted Han down
Lose 24-100

Dash and Han have sights on each other
Game 3
Shuttle, Vader
Vessery, Ruthlessness, Cluster
Soontir, PTL, Title, Targeting Comp, Autothrusters

So Rexlar shot off his cluster to great effect, but for 2 turns he didnt roll a single evade so he was gone as well as a Blue, and then Soontir went over a rock and straight into Han.. so no actions and then rolls a crit for Structural damage, and the last Blue takes him out of the sky, after that it was just about hitting the shuttle as many times as possible
Win 100-22

Shuttle is the last man standing!
Game 4

NOOOO the kind of list I didnt want to play!
But we got dug in, usual stuff, Han around the edges and the B-wings causing problems, my B-wings were able to block so well he went 2-3 turns without a shot.. and that was massive, time my B-wings went down he had a Headhunter and 2 blues, but 1 blue had 3 Hull left, and 1 had 1, the 1 will 1 hull ran off, and allowed me to put some more damage onto the other one, but in the end Han picked off both B-wings and then the Head-hunter to finish... but  not without cost, he only had 2 Hull left!
Win 100-44
This was the game of the day for me, good laugh and so close

Game 5
Garvin, R2D6, Vi
Dutch, Title, Autoblaster, R5-K6
Cracken, Swarm, Hull

This game didnt go well, he picked off a Blue a turn and then just hunted Han intill there was nothing left
Lose 28-100

Chasing the Falcon

So 3-2 and no top 16 for me
A few 4-1's didnt even make the top cut!

Final result was I finished 24th

Anyway Top 8, I only have some of the list information.

I also dont know the Swiss order they finished, so this is just in a random order

Player 1.
Dash, Pred, Recon, Title, HLC
Chewbacca, Pred, title

Player 2

Player 3

Player 8

7v8 (win for 8)

Top 4
