I posted a box opening video to Youtube. I figured as I open so many boxes of each new set for singles I might as well let people watch along! I hope you enjoy it, and subscribe to the channel if you want to see more.
This was the final week of our Summer League and the current standings were very close. So far in the league I have used Baharroth, Urien Rakarth, Aun’shi and Torquemada Coteaz, so they were unavailable for this week. Since it was the final week and I was in a position to challenge for the league title, I decided to go with a warlord that I have used before, Zarathur. Since one of the prizes for this league is an alternate art Zarathur, I thought this would be quite fitting as well.
This week I decided to go with Torquemada Coteaz. I have played a decent number of friendly games with him and have had favourable results, most of them resulting in the opposing warlord’s death. That strategy was the one I was going with in this tournament; I would try to keep constant pressure on their warlord and kill them when possible. The planet lineup was of course important, but I was going to consider it my secondary win-condition.
This week we have three videos from our latest tournament, courtesy of Rik Hyde (youtube channel):

Torquemada Coteaz vs Aun’shi
Aun’shi vs Urien Rakarth
With the recent release of the Imperial Raider, as well as Wave 7, I decided that it was time for me to actually try using Huge ships and the rules for Epic. I am an Imperial player and luckily I knew someone that had a large Rebel fleet as well as the CR90; Tony. Neither of us had played a game of X-Wing using the rules for Huge ships, but rather than play using a more sensible number of points on each side, we went with 800 points each!
Week Four of the X-Wing Summer League has just finished. Loki added another good result (2nd) with his double YT-1300 list to his impressive run of results so far (1st, 1st and 2nd). That puts him on top of the league going into the final week. However, it is still possible for Jack or Tim (that’s me!) to catch him.
