I didn’t find it easy coming up with a list to bring to Worlds as the meta had shifted ever since the newest errata came out. If you were an Imperial player like me, you “should fly” Defenders. I agree it makes sense, but I’m not one for playing a meta list. I’m also a dedicated Soontir Fel player, which often gets me ridiculed. Keeping with a favourite ship makes me believe that I’ll continue to have fun playing this game. Besides, Defenders are way too predictable and boring, I find.

The Ottawa/Gatineau X-Wing community has started right at the Game Release in 2012. The community grew with events like the Kessel Run, the very first regionals in 2013 and 2014, and Assault at Imdaar Alpha. The local community has since grown into multiple groups of players who play at different stores across the capital region.
However, we still have to build our own regional identity.
We strongly believe that the Prototype Toronto League did a lot to bring the Toronto players together in something recognizable to the larger scene. It is high time for us to forge our own identity and to create our own league. Continue reading The Bytown Smugglers League
On September 9-11, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, Lion Rampant hosted the Canadian Nationals championship for all of FFG’s Organized Play-supported games. Our turnout for the X-Wing event was a little under 120 players and VTTV Live was able to capture video of the Top 32 cut matches.
The fifth season of the Prototype Toronto League (PTL) concluded recently, so it’s time for another recap (check out last season’s here)! This time, I wanted to try a roundtable discussion with the players who finished at the top of the rankings. We’ve got Tim Ralphs, Aaron P, Devon Monkhouse, and Peter Scholch who were nice enough to do my job for me and answer some questions. Big congrats to all you guys for finishing in the Top 4 and special congrats to Tim who is our new PTL Champion!! Continue reading Prototype Toronto League – Season 5 Recap
With Manaroo becoming more and more prominent in the meta, mostly with her part in the dangerous Dengaroo combo, and her similarities to the Palp shuttle, its seemed very possible that Manaroo with two Scum Aces would become a thing. As a fan both of Scum, and of Palp Aces, I’ve decided to do some theoretical work on this possibility.
This repaint I used as a Dagger Squadron ship, or a thematic Red Squadron ship. It’s been modded to be fully rotational as with my other B-Wing mods. A few freehand rebel logos on the wings make it really stand out. Continue reading Custom Repaint: B-Wing Red Squadron with Rebel Logo
My first experience with Dengaroo was at the 401 Regionals in Toronto and already excellently chronicled here by SP3NC3R. I’m the guy who lost three TIEs in a round. Not my best moment, but I saw what was coming and just swung the elegant sledgehammer that is the TIE Swarm head on at it and just bounced. The rest of the game I just sat there in shock.
That was the first time I saw Dengaroo and the last time I’ve lost to it. Continue reading I beat Dengaroo and so can YOU!
A great interview with our very own Josh Derksen (aka Armoredgear7), creator of the viral X-Wing Co-Op Campaign, Heroes of the Aturi Cluster.
Hey all, Drew “Wilee” Edgar here!
I tend to push the idea that every Imperial ship has a role to play, and that when a ship doesn’t fill a specific role clearly then there’s usually some sign of imbalance. The TIE Advanced, before it had the X1 title, was one such example. Everything it brought to the table something else could do better.
While the First Order ships are minor deviants to this theory, they still do fulfill a given combat role and are spiritual equivalents. TIE/fo is just a beefier TIE fighter with upgradability and still is the spammy bully or disposable ace, and the upcoming Upsilon-class shuttle will be a Lambda on steroids. But what is the TIE/sf? Continue reading TIE/sf – Where does it fit in?
The road to win the Quebec Regional.
This is the long story of how I manage to win the Quebec Regional that happened on Saturday 2nd of July.
First of all, I’m a French Canadian, so English is not my primary language. I apologies for all the grammar and syntax mistakes I will surely do!!!
That Regional was held in Quebec city, in the province of Quebec, in Canada. For those of you who have no idea where it is, it is north of New-York. So, hot in summer and cold with tons of snow in winter. Continue reading The road to win the Quebec Regional
