Introduction.

But let me first say before I start with the round writeup this was one of the Store Championships i Played in with one of THE most exciting matches. But more on that later in this post.

This is also one of the better venues for Store Championship in the area. and i must say, Some X-wing players tend to forget things. And maybe break a peg or two. Which is where i come in handy. And i borrow stuff out and just a Shout Out to people borrowing things i never experienced such honesty i actually never NOT got my stuff back, so im happy with the community as it is now. And hopefully it will continue the same way for years.

Ok. But now for the real deal. the writeup.

Star Wars x-wing miniatures regional in Odense

X-wing regional was a learning curve

The arrival for the x-wing regional in Odense

ok so i got to my 3rd regional in my x-wing history, and we made it a roadtrip, me and my girlfriend Lise and our friends Henrik and Vince, Me and Henrik was going to participate and Vince and Lise was there for support, and only for support , as we told Vince, but we was just arrived when he offered to help the TO , who only To’ed his 2nd Tournament, but it was in my oppinion a well run tournament, with some flaws but we all started somewhere.

and before we talk about my matches remember my list from my former post right here.

My Matches in the x-wing regional round 1.

Round 1 was Against Lars Misimi and a Attanni Mindlink List, not the 100% classical one he had, a Heavy Scyk tansari Point veteran with him, instead of Fenn Rau or Old Teroch.
He also had Plasma torps on manaroo with Extra Munitions and Guidance Chips, so i was in a tough match, for starters with my defender list, and what a fight, what a close fight, my defenders took a lot of beating, he took a lot of beating, it ended up being me who lost this game, but a close one it was, his Scyk had 1 Hull Left, Ventress and manaroo had 2 Hull point left, when the match was over, he killed of my last Defender about 2-3 minutes before, time was up for the round, so we both sat back, in the chairs and was like wow, what was that, it was a very stormfull match.

My Matches in the x-wing regional round 2.

Round 2 in the regionals was against Jacob westh a cool guy, as with 98% of the community, we got cool guys and girls who just like to play the game and have fun. Jacob Played a list with 2 VCX 100 and a y wing, all with Autoblaster turrets, which is very much Auch within range 1 of those things.
Potentially 2 hits, which cannot be saved each round, from each ship at range one, so my tactics, was ofc to keep away from range 1, which did not happen 100%, i ran into a lot of hits from that, and ofc, when i play things happen, so range one inside a front arc, of a VCX is 5 dices, straight into defenders, but this time, i felt lucky and was lucky, jacob did not hit very often, with those 5 dices during range 1 attacks, he hit more with the turrets on his ships, but it was again, a fight which almost went full time.

Learning from round 2

And it was me, who took the win in the end, and i need to learn, to keep distance and learn, more proberly arc dodging. when i get that, into my playbook, i think i can do better, and ofc loose less ships and points in the future.

 

 

My Matches in the x-wing regional round 3.

Round 3, against Claus Staal was the third round match, this was a hard matchup for me. I havent yet, got the hang of my defenders 100%, and i know Claus, is a VERY good player, i played him once before and lost, and this time, was no different, he played a textbook match, with his mindlink list, with Old Teroch in the Protectorate fighter, and i lost the match, it was not a close match, but still it nearly, did go full time yet again, this was just because, of those damn defenders i played, they can take so much beating, that it is just incredible, they keep getting evades and focus, they got 3 defence dice, which is very good.

End of round 3.

so my Delta was last man standing until Claus could take it out, but the delta should be proud with one hull left he managed to fend off all three ventress, manaroo and old teroch for one round, and in the round he died he saved the first shot with 3 evade one the dices.
But then it was Gone and Claus did win 100 to 0 and brought my total score to 1-2.

 

 

My Matches in the x-wing regional round 4.

Round 4 Brought me an opponent i have not played before, his name was Per Kring, who played list with Biggs the x-wing Favorite, Thane Kyrell in his Arc fighter and Miranda Doni in her k-wing, when i first read his list, right before we started setting up etc, my first thought was, this is a list which suited my defenders better, than those mindlink lists, and i did well in this match. And from the start, this was a close match , we traded a lot of shots during the match, and i mean, ALOT of shots, but none of us, could really hit, but i managed to get Biggs down first, then Thane, if i remember correctly. And i started out by loosing Ryad. And vessery and my Delta pilot started a hunt for victory

Impatience at the end.

In the end i was a bit impatient as i tried to hunt down Miranda in the Slamming k-wing, this was nearly impossible for me, and as one friend Told me afterwards what the Hell where you doing relax, fly away and regroup with a K turn to gain maneuverbility again, and get a better angle on Miranda, In the end before he could say anything to my ofc he cannot tell me what to do in a match, i did manage to get shots fired at the k-wing in the last turn of the match, and ofc he shot first with his TLT, and missed both shots, and i only got 1 faboulous hull point left at this point, and i managed to hit him for 1 damage instead of the 2 required for a kill. which brought me to a score of 2-2

My Matches in the x-wing regional round 5.

This round I got to face another player that i have not played before, in my x-wing carreer, so here at this regional i am now at 2 players that i have not met before that is kind of cool in my own oppinion.
Peter played another mindlink list, a classic list with Fenn Rau up front ofc with manaroo and ventress backing him up, and again what a long match, this is the last match, and to be honest, I cannot remember the whole sjabang here, i remember that Fenn Rau, was one of the first ships who were destroyed, by the defenders flown by me.
This is already from the start, a match that i said to myself would go full time, it was a match that was close, we both did well, but dices, dices, dices, I would say that dices was very much into this game, when things get heated the dices were not with peter.

End game round 5 in Odense regional

As said before this last match was also close, with alot of clustering during the game, which made it hard for ships to do anything, although i managed to wriggle the defenders out of it when it happened, once again i felt the annoyance of the “i remove your stress to take an evade” damn i hated this, at this point in the day, but i managed to get all his ships down in the end, to win a modified victory think it was 71 to 63 or something like that, i think we both could have played better. but this brought me at 3-2, and not enough to make the cut.

 

 

Conclusion to the Odense regional

This was a great experience, i learned alot, and i still have a lot to learn, including practicing, to not choke up during tournaments, and i think, the solution is actually simple, besides training matches, and playing more, and more and more all the time, i think i need to mentally train, for tournaments, and make myself a new mindset. but hey i just wanna have fuuun.

So thank you for reading see you in the next post.

Game night at Faraos Copenhagen

 

Training for the Dragons Lair Odense Regional in faraos copenhagen

I went into Faraos Cigarer in copenhagen to get the last and actually first practice with my regional list, for this sundays Regional in Odense, and i will be playing the following list.

Regional Odense List.

TIE Defender: Countess Ryad
X7 Title
Push The Limit
Twin Ion Engine MK II

TIE Defender: Vesssery
Juke
X7 Title

TIE Defender: Delta Squadron
X7 Title

Yes some of you may have seen it before, and yes i have borrowed it / copied it on total purpose, so no worries you would do the same.

 

 

The Match

I got to play me one match before i had to go home, and some people already had to go home early, so my one match Was against Claus Staal and his scum list, with attanni Mindlink, so i had my defenders a hard match, it had also been a while since i played defenders so, i was rusty, and during the whole first half of the match i forgot Ryad’s PTL.

And as i could remember Defenders are hard to kill, and with the X7 title WAY harder than i remebered, you will 90% of the time end up with focus evade, even on a K turn, which very cool, and with Ryad’s Green K turns damn she is awesome.

But i played Mr. Claus Staal’s List of scums, soo wrong i Should have taken out Manaroo or Ventress instead of going for Old teroch, Manaroo was in the outskirts the whole battle, giving focus to the others, and i could not do anything about that, i tried but could not, but i learned alot from this one match i played this Monday, i will not give up, i have entered this defender list, so i will play it sunday at the Odense Regionals.

I lost and did only 4 Damage in total to my enemy, which is not good enough if i want to win, things needs to get way better this Sunday if i should win any matches then.

The Regional Expectations for me

Well i expect maybe a bit to much for my self, but hey i really do want both Dice and manouever templates from the regional Prize kit, but i also know that i need to play the best i can, to get there, and i believe that i can, i always do.
Although i on the other side dont feel like i played as much as i would during the last 6 months, i really need to play more here in 2017, it is the only way to live up to my own expectations with this high end game. But i will do my best to win as many swiss round as i can, just to make a cut to top 8. but i will tell you guys all about it after this Sunday, when i participate in Odense Regional in Dragons Lair.

U-Wing Wave 10 StarWars X wing

U-Wing Unboxing

U-wing Unboxing in this video just below.

What is the U-wing?

The U-wing, is a ship from the newest Movie, in the Star Wars Universe Rogue One, in Rogue One, the U-wing is a troop transporter, that you see the rebels, utilize on the Beach, when coming to help “Rogue One” This is a ship that got its own title, where it can change, wing positions and gain bonus if the wings are pointing backwards or forward.

And you can buy it right here.

How is the U-wing Dial?

The U-wing Dial is actually Quite Good with only one red maneuver which is the 0, so just like YV666 and The Imperial Shuttle it can hold its ground if it is not stressed. Other than that it has 6 greens which is straight 1 and 2 and bank 1 and 2, so got a fairly good opportunity to get rid of stress from the 0 move, this ship is a bit fast as it can go 4 straight to get fast across the board, it is a large Ship so it will seem very fast, and ofc. With Engine upgrade, you could boost your ship further across.

The downside to this, dial is the possibility to turn, so you will not out run ships, with this dial, it is similar to the Empire Shuttle but this is more agile, as it does not have any reds except for the 0 maneuver.

Is the U-Wing Competitive?

Well I haven’t played it competitive yet, The ship has 3 attack, 1 agility, 4 hull and 4 Shields, but I can see some possibilities, with Cassian Andor or Bodhi Rook, those are both, very good support pilots, one is removing stress, and the other basically makes it easy, to take target lock all over the board, even if your ships are spread and scattered. And if you are going for an elite pilot talent, remember ONLY Cassian Andor is able to take one.

I could see maybe a build like this with Bodhi Rook

Bodhi Rook (25), Sensor Jammer (4), Pivot Wing(0) and Kanan Jarrus(3), which is 32 points worth of support ship, that makes it easier to take target lock.

So maybe consider, it to paired with anything, that can shoot torpedoes or missiles, and then use Kanan, to remove stress from ships around it also. The sensor jammer is just, a good survivability card.

And remember the U-Wing can take Target Lock and Focus which are the standard actions for this ship.

What Is the U-wing weaknesses as I see it?

As I see it the weakness, is ofc the 1 agility defense Die, you can boost that, with the title, but still is a weakness, and I would personally, classify it as a weakness, that this ship is a large ship, ofc it carry quite a big load, of infantry in the movies, but I don’t know about it being a large ship, when we compare it, to ships on small bases that in my opinion should be large ships, like the K wing and the TIE punisher.

Lindhardgaming Presents: where should i buy PC hardware?

Hi Again,  Lets Talk Hardware

Lindhardgaming here, with another post , this time I will talk about, where to buy your hardware,  as I am from Denmark myself, i will focus on shops/webshops, around the nordic countries.

So first things first, what should i look for when buying hardware for a new PC or just looking for upgrades, for the old machinery you have at home.
But both versions depends, what is your needs, what you wanna do with the PC, many people just go down, to the local shop say, I want i a new PC, and you might end up with either, paying to much, or too little according, to what your needs for the PC is, and this can be both, on laptop and desktop.
