Well fellow X-Wingers, finally broke the 200 game mark. Thanks to all my opponents and friends on Vassal that keep the game fresh!!! So a few results.
I managed to drag my average up to just below 50% (100 Win, 103 Losses). My average over last 100 games is better at a 57% win rate. So you could say I was improving… slightly. I mean stats are stats, they don’t tell the whole story. Of course, there is a lot of experimenting that goes on. Losses means learning. Sometimes you just try weird squad ideas and they don’t work out. My current tournament record is 9-4, so I am reasonably happy with that.
The one stat that I ran was squads that include large ships. So my win percentage with small ships is 41%, and my win with a large ship is 53%. So is the moral of the story to try and field at least one large ship? For my personal play style, it looks like it.
Anyway, that is the summary. Wave 4 seems to be throwing a monkey wrench into everything. Its a little harder to fit in large ships with phantoms, defenders, and ewings running around. So we’ll see what happens.
See you in space!
