"Initiative When Squad Building

When using squad building rules, the player with the
lowest point total has the initiative. If the players’
squad point totals are equal, the Imperial player has
the initiative (see “Initiative” on page 16)."

So lets say I have a squad points total of 18 and my opponent has 20 for example, I will be the player with the initiative. So does that mean I setup all of my ships first and then my opponent? And then if were both rebel factions with the same amount of squad points in total, who would have initiative?

Please advise.

And apologise in advance if this has been asked about already.

Thanks.

The tournament rules say that on a tie of command points you choose at random who will have the initiative...
so the rule with "imperial allways get the initiatve on a tie" is not valid on tournament play.

And ships are placed on the baord in the same order as they will be activated.
So starting with the lowest pilot value to the highest, you need the initiative only if ships of controlled by diffrent players have the same pilot value.

So starting with lowest pilot skill from both sides correct? So I have ship with pilot skill 8, 9 and 11 my opponent has 3, 7 and 10 this how the ships would be put down in Pilot Ascending order:
1st Opponent Ship with Pilot Skill 3
2nd Opponent Ship with Pilot skill 7
3rd Me Ship with Pilot Skill 8
4th Me Ship with Pilot Skill 9
5th Opponent Ship with Pilot Skill 10
6th Me Ship with Pilot Skill 11

Is the above example correct?
