You are sitting there, looking at the screen realizing you are gonna go up gonna go up against some of THE best people that play this game. We are talking fierce competition. What to do?
I’m in, as in, I will be playing this tournament.
Since joining TC I have met some awesome people. Gotten help with understanding how Vassal works and gotten a lot of useful information, tips and tricks about this game.
When I saw the post about a Vassal tournament, I was kinda like, “Why not take the chance to get my butt handed too me”, while of course learning something in the process. My belief is that X-Wing is a game that you need to PLAY to get better. Sure you can spend time optimizing your squad, reading the meta. But in the end, it comes down to be able to actually fly your ships in position to be able to decimate your opponent.
I started to think about what squad I was gonna bring. Wave 3 just came out with some really cool ships, both visually and in game capabilities.
Went back and fort, 4 X-wings, Falcon + X-wing or 2 B-wings + Rookies?
I settled with a squad that I will probably never own myself (well, if this works out REALLY well I might).
We are talking TWO, yes 2 YT-1300. Nothing spectacular I know. But I believe this a great chance to see what it can do against wave 3. It was also kinda a meta choice. BORING I know, but I think that most people will bring wave 3 ships, trying out new stuff and not anticipating this build.
So, my goal. My goal is to win 1 game, that’s it.
I didn’t name the squad, MrFroggies did, but I’m gonna keep it. Is this the best 2 falcon build? I don’t know. Can it do well? I hope so.
Looking forward to the first round…
