Re: World Championship Finals on Twitch TV right now!
Howlrunner is DOWN!
So is an Academy pilot.

4 Ties vs. 2 Daggers now. All the Ties have stress from K-Turns and so does a Dagger.

And we're back to movement.

Paul and I did a mini anti swarm asteroid jam session before worlds started. Maybe it helped!

A great victory by a great player - who, btw, won the team covenant tourney this morning as well, beating Ricky white's XXBB blue thunder list.

Congratulations Paul Heaver for a well deserved win. Now I feel less bad about being ousted in quarter-finals of the team Covenant vassal tournament #3 by him laugh

Paul was a naked Biggs, two daggers with advanced sensors, and a rookie.

Don't know the exact swarm listed but I think it was Howl, Backstabber, and a bunch of academies.

When I started watching, a Tie was already gone. and the 6 that were left were facing the two X-Wings, quickly vaporizing Biggs. The Rookie went down soon aftre and it felt like all the momentum was with the swarm. But the Daggers were in position to take down two ties the next turn.

Match was simply incredible, so tense great flying by top players.
THAT was how to take down a tie swarm - B-wing with adv sensors were outstanding as always. Great double up Paul.

EDIT (someone keep me honest on this please):
The matchup was:

Paul Heaver (USA) 100 points
Biggs
Rookie
Dagger w/ Adv Sensors
Dagger w/ Adv Sensors

Dallas Parker (USA) 98 points (90% sure this is accurate)
Howlrunner
Dark Curse
Backstabber
4x Academy


Backstabber wasn't in there. I'm pretty sure it was howl with stealth, dark curse, obsidian, and 4 AP.

To Lyle's comments on asteroids, I talked briefly to Dallas (great guy btw) after the match and he commented that the asteroid placement was problematic so maybe your session with Paul worked.

Pretty crazy that Paul was essentially playing against the clock too as his flight was leaving at 4:30. Match wrapped at about 3:50 so I'm not sure he made that flight. Great game and I can't wait to see TCs replay (yes it was that good).

Not to add further confusion, but I'm fairly certain the runner-up swarm was:

Howlrunner w/ Stealth Device + Determination
Dark Curse
AP x5

Superb match with many shocking moments (
Spoiler (click to reveal)
one hitting Dark Curse at range 3 + subsequently one hitting Howlrunner
) and as close a finale as you could ask for. Personally, I'm glad to see rebels take a major tournament.

Great job, Paul! I am ecstatic that a non-TIE swarm list won. I have new found faith in this game!

Dallas ran Howl (Stealth & Determination), Dark Curse, and 5 Academies.

That match was full of crazy tempo swings. I had Biggs with a focus behind an asteroid at range 3, and rolled nothing but eyes and blanks on defense. Four shots from Academies later (16 dice with no evades), he was dead. Dallas similarly had problems rolling anything but eyes and blanks on his TIEs, since Biggs oneshot Dark Curse and the second Hail Mary shot on Howlrunner connected for an instant lethal hit.

And no, I did not make my flight. Oh well, it was worth it.

Oh man, that was the toughest match i ever played! The dice definately made it beyond nerve wracking. I have to say that b wings with adv sensors are extremely hard to deal with, especially with a pro doing the manuvers.
I am sooooo glad i made it out, everyone I played was a blast. Extremely well played Paul, it was great to meet ya, and u definately deserve the win!

Oh, yes i ran 5 APs, darkcurse, and howl+stealth+determination.

oops, looks like i screwed up my name on here.
