Was gonna play Theorist tonight, but ended up having to work til past 11, so had to postpone. Seems like most of the other divisions aren't nearly as proactive with their games as ours. 8)

By the way, Iain3 is also on 3-1 and the only person he hasn't played is you, so if he beats you he is garanteed a spot. So DOUBLE no pressure! :mrgreen:

Matt, I feel like we should condition Gregg for his upcoming games. You know: strict work-out regime, 3 Vassal games a day... that kind of thing :D

I finished my next Division game, this one using my Elite tie-swarm http://xwing-builder.co.uk/view/73114/m ... lord-list2 against FrankStark's rebel Focus Factory:

• Garven Dreis - X-wing
• Dutch Vander - Y-wing (23) - R2 Astromech (1) - Ion Cannon Turret (5)
• Prototype Pilot - A-wing (17)
• Kyle Katarn - HWK-290 (21) - Blaster Turret (4) - Recon Specialist (3)

His plan was to have the Recon Specialist create 2 focus per turn, use Kyle to hand one out and use the other to fire the blaster turret, have Garven do a target lock and then receive focus from Kyle which he then hands off to another ship when it's spent, while Dutch does a target lock and assigns a free one to another rebel.

My plan was crash tie-fighters into the middle of all that activity and then shoot him.

Game file:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/c945xi932cwlv ... Stark.vlog

The engagement started early, with the first shots in turn 2, and for a moment I thought my opponent had made a crucial mistake because his ships were heading towards an asteroid that was direcly between our fleets. Then I recalled that this was the only asteroid he had precisely measured when placing, so it was almost certainly part of his plan. There's a real lack of noobs on vassal!

Sure enough he use the Awing to do a hard turn right near the rock, and the other ships piled up behind it. I sent 4 ships the long way around, missing the chance to shoot with them but setting up the next turn.

A academy tie A1 whipped around the asteroid, and into the space where Garven was planning to make his curve away from the rock. The result was the xwing forced onto the asteroid and a pile up of rebels behind it. This was followed by some close range combat, with swarm tactics ensuring Garven and Kyle were killed before they could fire, and Dutch hunted down in the following turn.

FrankStark's squad was good and well-tuned and his dead-stop engagement plan a really interesting one, but it all fell apart due to action denial and the order of firing.

Also Elite Ties are teh broken :D

100-0

Nice work, Matt. :mrgreen:

And thanks again, Alex, for reminding me just how crucial each victory is. :lol:

Looking to arrange games either Thursday morning or Sunday sometime at this stage.

Edit: Theorist vs me, 9am tomorrow.

It has started with some long range firing
* *** doobleg Rolls to Attack: [Blank], [Focus], [Blank], [], [], [], [] ***
<doobleg> - Krassis rerolls
* *** doobleg Re-Rolls Attack Die 1 [Blank] and gets a [Focus] ***
* *** Theorist Jeff Rolls to Attack: [Crit], [Hit], [Hit], [], [], [], [] ***
* *** Theorist Jeff Rolls to Attack: [Hit], [Hit], [Hit], [], [], [], [] ***

But you can tell when they are getting closer because it changes to
* *** doobleg Rolls to Attack: [Focus], [Blank], [Blank], [Focus], [], [], [] ***
* *** Theorist Jeff Rolls to Attack: [Crit], [Hit], [Hit], [Hit], [], [], [] ***
* *** Theorist Jeff Rolls to Attack: [Hit], [Hit], [Hit], [Hit], [], [], [] ***

:shock:

It won't be decided by the dice, Gregg was smart enough to flip his ships over and avoid following Theorist into a corner, but then Kath got ioned, drifted and Bwings viciously pounced on her from the side like lions on a wilderbeest.
But those dice, they are not going out of their way to help.
