We are down to the final two players, but only one can walk away redeemed. We also happen to have a Full Rebel player, Ringo, verses a Full Imperial player, Innocent. Should be an exciting final to behold.

Thanks everyone for the kind words!

The replay has been posted here:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/p7vub4ag562k1 ... inals.vlog


My opponent chose his Imperial Methadone list (3Bwings, 2AWings, nothing else :) ), which is slightly amusing because it is the list I wrongly linked in my quarter-final game against JeffWilder. I guess I got to play against it after all!

I did my usual deployment again (if it's broken, don't fix it!), block of 6 in the middle and 2 on the flank. He deployed all his guys in a corner facing sideways. My first move was to do a hard 1 left and move parrallele to him in the same direction, with a view of turning hard right towards him as soon as I'd cleared the asteroids. This worked pretty well, except that one of my Ties ended up in range 3 of 3BWings and died in the first salvo. Don't know if this was planned by my opponent or just luck, but it was great positioning from him.

The following turn was interesting: I could either move slowly forward and block any Kturn from the AWings, or do a 5 fwd and block any slow movement from him. I didn't think he'd gamble the KTurn just yet, so went for the 5 fwd. Interestingly, he did the Kturn with the AWings and ended up behind my Ties! (I did manage to block a couple of BWings). Pretty big gamble but it paid off for him with another Tie dead. I managed to strip the shields off a BWing.

I was in his lines now however. I moved the flankers to block any Kturn from the BWings and Kturned with my surviving Ties. He moved his AWings well, anticipating the blocks, but his BWings crashed straight into me. I finally got on the scoreboard, killing a BWing and getting started on another one.

From then on, I kept blocking his BWings and the Kturn in particular, while getting arc with as many Ties as possible. He flew the AWings well, but kept crashing in my guys with his Bs, and even set up a dial wrong at one point. He was still doing some damage, getting one Tie down to 1 and another down to 2, but I quickly despatched another BWing and an AWing that was unfortunate enough to venture too close. Another crash, another BWing goes, and the game was pretty much over.

Ringo anticipated me really well at the beginning with his AWings, but crashed too many times with the BWings in the mid and end game. A great player nonetheless, very knowledgeable.
