Absolutely EPIC 4h30 minutes game
And I took the win with a single tie left on 1hp, when really I shouldn't have!
He took his Elite Tie list, with Jax+shield+ptl, Dark Curse, Mauler, and Kagi with Sensor Jammers. A horrible list to face with a Tie swarm.
Anyway, he was happily mopping the floor with me. It came down to Jax on 2hp + the shuttle against a single tie on 1hp. I was that close to concede, but figured what the hell, let's let him finish me. I push forward with a fwd3 thinking Jax will hard turn (and hoping to crash into him), but instead he banks and hits an asteroid, right in front of my tie. He takes a crit from the rock, and the tie miraculously manages to strip Jax's last Hp. From then on, the Tie just hanged around the shuttle's rear, stripping point after point, and eventually destroyed it!
Insane game. I was getting really hammered. I was pretty gutted too because I deployed pretty well and didn't hit a single roid all game, and my earlier luck was atrocious. However, I did mess up a couple of moves: I had the opportunity to block Jax when I still had 4 Ties left, but misjudged the distance and did a bank 3 where i should have done a 2, and crashed in the shuttle. Jax escaped my trap and i thought that's it, I'll never get another opportunity like this. Turns out I did

(Note: we had to restart the game because he couldn't see the map, and there were a few isues with the logs. I managed to stitch them up but you can't see the damage cards. No big deal though as we kept track of damage on our ships, and you can see the crits in the chat).
