All of these games are recorded, although you need Vassal to watch them (or to play them!!!!!!!! it doesn't just need to be me Alex and Gregg who are exposed to the international meta 8) )

All except DJCodex then :D

Paul Heaver's (World Champion 2013, 2014) last 16 game just started, in case anyone's interested. He's running an Oicunn Decimator, Vadershuttle and 2 Obsidians.

His opponent is another very good player called Mishary, who has Howlrunner and 4 Obsidians with Soontir Fel.
It's tricky to call, since Paul is a genuinely fantastic player and both lists are solid. Ties are good vs Decimators and Shuttles though, so it's not going to be easy for either of them.

If the the decimator has gunner then it's not even a contest, let's be honest now

The decimator has both predator and gunner. I think the advice may have been modified to match the new meta; predator is popular and a lot of the lists are running Obsidians (including both of these).

It was a good match, but Mishary overcomitted to killing the shuttle and then Oicunn ramming howlrunner and one other tie to death sealed the deal. Paul had the Decimator and a tie left at the end, and makes the last 8.

Theorist: Super Dash Rendar YT2400 and Fringer YT2400
Matt-Shadwlord: Chewie and Lando

Paul Heaver: Oicunn Decimator, 2 Obsidians 1 Vader Omicron Shuttle
Whisper Echo Omicron Shuttle

Whisper and Decimator
Super Dash YT2400 and Vrill YT2400

Super Dash and Corran
Chewie and Leebo YT2400

Game over!

It was a good, fast paced game vs Super Dash (YT2400 with all bells and whistles) and a HLC armed Fringer YT2400. I managed to angle up just enough to get shots on Dash while the Fringer missed a couple of rounds - and every round counts when they are using those 4v1 laser cannons. We had some good exchanges, although I couldn't manage to roll anything like my opponent's consistent hits which started really taking its toll. Despite this the first ship to die was all 58pts worth of Dash Rendar, when I caught him at range 1 with a couple of fast Bank 3s in a row around the map edge.

This left me with more ships but a deficit in HP, so while I managed to catch the Fringer in range 1 twice (this forces it to use its weak gun instead of the HLC, while taking 4 shots in return) as we Kturned and manoeuvred around the asteroids fields, by the time the Fringer was down to 4 hp my ships were dead.

A great game vs a very good opponent, but that's him and Paul Heaver through to semi finals, and I join Alex and Doobleg in the post game party.

Good fun though, I recommend it to any xwing fan. 8)
