Armada Escalation League - Session 2

Post by WildBorr » Tue May 17, 2016 4:45 pm

Tomorrow begins our second session, bringing the points up to 225 per side. Games should still be played on a 3x3 at this point. Current standings are as such:

Kinne - 10
Paul - 10
Steve - 10
Kowal - 8
Patrick - 8
Chris (CptNemo) - 8
Russell - 8
Chris S - 8
Kevin - 6
Dez - 6
Shawn - 3

I have 4 people who signed up, but did not report any games. Some of you I know did not play any games, but if you did and need to receive credit, please make sure to report your games by the end of the day tomorrow. If you do not play any games in the league, you will not be eligible for the prize support.

Additionally, the tentative date for the tournament is looking to be July 2nd. I realize this is July 4th weekend, but due to other events and Magic, it's the earliest we could do without pushing into August. If not enough people are able to make it, I will post pone, but I would like it to be near the end of the league, which is slated to end the first week of July. Please let me know what you expect either in person, or when you report your games.

I played a game against Paul. I won. Mainly because Paul's dice went all Lando and stabbed him in the back.

I also played a game against Paul and won because my midichlorians were rolling hot. Then I played a non-league practice game against Chris E., but don't worry I scored a moral victory in the name of the Empire.

Yeah... it was the worst rolling of my life against Dan but such are the whims of the dice gods... Patrick straight up crushed me though but I learned a lot about how weak my list was. Lesson learned...

Confirming my game with Kevin, who had a good shot to win if not for a mission selection snafu. Kevin thought he picked my grey mission but left the red one on the table, and I was much better tuned for that one.

Got in two games today, one to count for myself and one to help Shawn catch up.

Game one was against the traitorous Moff Kuzmeski, whose separatist fleet included a Gladiator class and a Victory class Star Destroyer as well as a small fleet of TIE Fighters led by designation: Howlrunner. Imperial Class Star Destroyer Butt-Pillager was deployed with a wing of TIE Interceptors to slay the former hero of the Imperial Navy and break the back of this uprising. While the cost was high financially for the Empire, Butt-Pillager was successful in its mission.

In game two Mon Mothma's scouting party in a pair of A-type Corellian Corvettes was assaulted out of hyperspace by Gladiator Class Star Destroyer Demolisher. An Imperial Raider, supported with two wings of TIE Fighters, was to capture Mon Mothma's escape shuttle. Admiral Ozzel underestimated the plucky rebels and their speedy craft led his short range specialists on a merry chase. When the Raider was destroyed, the ambush proved too costly for the Admiral and he wisely fled the scene.

Confirming my game with Kowal. The results were accurate but his description was false. The Moff Kuzmeski forces remain true to the Emperor. The duplicitous forces of Darth Kowal claim loyalty while revealing their intent through their rogue actions.
