MK X-wing Duality Event

Hello all!

So a X-wing event in MK and some special rules!

Basically for game 1.3.5 you run one list, and for 2.4 you run a different one!
Also each list has to be from a different fraction!

So let me quickly run down how this event went!
And it will be a quick run down, sorry if I got games mixed up a bit.

So my lists!
For game 1,3,5 I ran Scum
For game 2,4 I ran rebels!

Scum list-
Boba Fett, Autoblaster, Engine
Kath, Pred, HLC, Engine

Rebel list-
Wes, Vi, R3-A2
2 Blues
2 Bandits

29 players battling it out!
Game 1-
Rematch of round 6 at the nationals I believe, anyway same guy and he had the same list!

Guri, Autothrusters, Determinations
Nduk, Lone Wolf
Kath, Engine, k4, PTL

So I remember how dangerous Nduk can be from our last game, so I gunned for him, and in the end 1 shoot him with kaths HLC, good start.
Rest of game we were chasing each other, he got Boba down to 2 Hull, so I took a brave choice, to split my Kath off the Kath vs Kath fight (His had 1 Hull left, mine still had 4 I think) and send her after Guri, and Guri still had 4 hull at this point...but at range 2... Kath got 4 damage though taking out Guri, before he killed Boba!  After that my hunters finished off Kath.
What a great game, quite close to
Win 100-0

At the top just off the picture is Nduk.. he didnt last the next turn!

Game 2-
Duncan Callander! Its our first game against each other.. somehow

Krassis, Recon HLC
Whisper, Rebel, ACD, FCS, VI
Academy Pilot

First turn of shooting saw Whisper fly into my swarm, he got stressed from Wes, and so Whisper couldnt re-cloak.. and that was the end of the phantom, as my swarm finished the ship off.
HE did take down a B quite quick after, but his Krassis had started taking a lot of damage, and my other B 1 shot his Academy at range 1, but before Krassis goes down, he does manage to kill of Wes
Win 100-52

Game 3-

Corran, PTL, FCS, R2D2
Han, Determination, C3P0, Title, Gunner

I remember something like this when I played last event... but I was playing it!
So I went straight for Han, but I took way to long to take him down, and had 2 badly injured firesprays vs Corran!  Yep Corran won!
Lose 56-100

Corran and the last bounty hunter... eye each other up
Game 4-
Vs my team mate Ed! And he also had a 5 ship rebel swarm!

Ibtisan, PTL
2 Bandits

We set up opposite and went straight into each other... then turned around and repeat a few times!
After a few turns of this he had a fully healthed Bandit vs a slightly damaged B-wing.
But his Bandit dodged for its life! and even got the B-wing right down to 2 Hull left, just before the B-wing finished it off!
Wow that was a close game!
Win 100-78

All that remains...

Game 5-
Rematch from a little while ago, and this is a great young lad, who is already a fantastic player even though he hasnt been in the game long! Great to see!

Corran, R2D2, FCS, PTL
Biggs, Hull, R3-A2
2 Bandits

Going up against Corran (again) I really wanted to have my small swarm, not my firesprays! O well
So I took both his Bandits out early, Biggs was either not in arc, or to far away, then Biggs fell, now I cant remember if I only had 1 firespray left or both at this point, but either way.. my last shoot of the game against Corran...
I got 4 hits with my HLC, he had 2 Hull and 1 Shield left and no actions, I thought that would be it... but nope, he rolled 3 Natural evades.. and then double tapped poor Kath to win the game!
Wow could of swung either way at the end, and such a close game!
Lose 54-100

Early turns

So even going 3-2 I had a decent MOV, which saw me finish 7th out of 29.
Took home a Recon Spec alt art card, and some of the Summer kit Evade tokens
Quite pleased with that, as these are not normally lists I would of took, not my normal Han or Dash lists.

Hope you enjoyed the read!
