So what have I been up the past few weeks? Besides work and real life, it was practicing for the Regionals. Held at Gamersaurus Rex, we had a small contingent of Malaysian players who turned up as well.
Unfortunately I could not take many photos as the games were really tight. We had 35 people sign up and 6 qualifier games to play. I brought the following list:
|"Echo" — TIE Phantom||30|
|Advanced Cloaking Device||4|
|Bounty Hunter — Firespray-31||33|
|Omicron Group Pilot — Lambda-Class Shuttle||21|
The following pictures are caught before I kicked off each round. Swiss rounds.
|First game against Elliot fielding a Jonus + Bombers x3. He is an old gaming buddy of mine so we had a blast. I did lose this game though.|
|Largest turnout to date. I am glad the community is thriving.|
|So many tables of X Wing going on at the same time. It actually got warm!|
|My second game was against Alex Yeo. Played him for the first time. Friendly chap! His list was a little sub-optimal as he was using Interceptors akin to Tie Fighters with more attacks. Interceptors need Push the Limit. I manage to win this game|
|Unfortunately for Alex as well, I managed to roll really well, one shot killed his Interceptors with my Echo TWICE!|
|My fourth game was with one of the boys that work at the store. I missed his name (apologies!). He piloted really well missing asteroids and his own ships by a hairs breadth. Amazing. I lost this game.|
|My fifth game saw me fighting Soe, one of the ex-store champions. We danced a little and I managed to pull this game limping on 2 HP on my Shuttle and 1 HP on my Echo. The odds were clearly against Soe in this game but remarkable play.|
|Just more action going on around me. Richard committing to take out my lone Echo allowing me to flank|
|The table behind me with my sensei, Vick playing|
|Look carefully at that Echo. It's almost invisible!|
|And that modified Carnor Jax|
|Another excellent paintjob - by Jeremy|
|Jonnie vs someone....|
I wanted the dice too but alas, wasn't good enough.
|Blacked out when the guys collected their tokens and cards|
Here are some photos of the top 8.
|No wave 4 ships...ooooo|
|Table 4 - Vick with his cloaked Whisper|
Oh yea, someone needs to repair that AC. Gamer funk at 8PM with an empty stomach makes me grouchy.
Game on fellas!
