Now that the debris has stopped spinning from all the wrecked ships, it’s time to start the top 8. There’s some fantastic matches this round, and I expect some more epic games. With fewer players in now, the rounds might end before the week time limit is up, so I will post the next round matches as soon as this round is done.
1 vs 8 Theorist (@theorist) and his Saber Rattler verses the Greg Duncan (@joynvengeance) with Lord Vader’s Escort. I couldn’t ask for a more dramatic first round match up. Greg’s only loss was to Theorist in the qualifying rounds. This is Greg’s chance for vengeance. Can the Swarm take out the sabers?

2 vs 7 Dom (@fuamatu) and the Blue Blocker verses Richard White (@kelvantiberius) and his Heavy Fighters. Initiative is going to be very important in this match up. Richard brings a lot of hard hitting fire power, and could drop the ORS in the first exchange, before he really gets a chance to slow Richards advance. The Ion Cannon could really mess things up for Richard, some well timed shots could keep him from concentrating his fire. This match will be fast and it will be bloody.

3 vs 6 Aaron (@aaron) and his Rebel Convoy verses Doug Kinney (@hothie) and the Fettigator Boys. I’m really not sure how this match is going to shake out. Aarron’s 36 hull and shields is going to be a lot for Doug’s guys to shoot through, and with Aarron’s 360 degree fire it’s going to be tricky to keep Boba out of some’s arc. Setup and positioning are going to be critical here.

4 vs 5 Paul Heaver (@pheaver) and Biggs walks the dogs verse Michaël Juneau (@mu0n) and his Ibitie and friends. This is a very interesting match up. Michaël’s Ion weapons could make a huge difference in this game. Also Michaël has a slight edge when it comes to PS skill in this match up. Both players are excellent pilots, so I think this one is just too close to call.
