I’m very excited about the wild card round. This is the first tournament where I’ve added this, and I’m glad I did. With 44 players it didn’t seem right to just stop at at top 8, yet a top 16 seem too inclusive. This feels like a good balance to me. So without further ado, here’s the matches.
For the 7th seed:
Richard White (@kelvantiberius) and the Heavy Fighters verses Sozin (@sozin) and Rhymer to the Howl . Sozin is going to have both a ship count and a PS level advantage in this game. All of his ships are going to be able to shoot before Richards. However Richard ships back some serious firepower and have more combined shields and hull then Sozin. If Richard can take out Rhymer before he gets his second Torpedo off, then things are going to be tough for Sozin.

For the 8th seed:
Greg Duncan (@joynvengeance) and Lord Vader’s Escort verses Elizabeth Malette (@lizzrdbreath) and the Draw their Fire Swarm. This is swarm on swarm. Liz has the PS advantage with very consistent damage because of Howlrunner. Greg has a 1 ship advantage, and a shuttle with Vader. Vader can deal some damage to even the most well defended ships. An early crit to Howlrunner could change the game.
