Kyber Cosmic League, season 6, round 9: Nébal (Scum and Villainy) vs Oscar Ice (Galactic Empire) (streamed on Hexiled Gaming)

Publié le par Nébal

 

Kyber Cosmic League, season 6, round 9! Which is the final round of this tournament, as it is the last of the third pod.

 

This game was streamed by Hexiled Gaming on its Twitch channel (also check for the YouTube channel of the same name right there). So many thanks to Scott for the stream, and to Funwok as well, who helped him on the commentary! Thanks also for having graciously sent me the file so that I can feature it on Random Academy Pilot!

 

(And thanks for the Mux’ed token as well!)

 

In this league there were precisely 200 players, dispatched in 50 pools or pods of four players. There was a round robin within pods, with one game a week. Then, after three weeks, new pods were drawn. And then you repeated that once again, for a total of three pods and nine rounds. Lists were extended format, and they were not locked, they could be changed whenever you wanted.

 

For this final round. I have been paired with Oscar, a very nice player from Poland, who brought the following Galactic Empire list, a swarm of Interceptors and Aggressors:

 

TIE Interceptor – Saber Squadron Ace – 35

Saber Squadron Ace (35)

 

TIE Interceptor – Saber Squadron Ace – 35

Saber Squadron Ace (35)

 

TIE Interceptor – Saber Squadron Ace – 35

Saber Squadron Ace (35)

 

TIE Interceptor – Saber Squadron Ace – 35

Saber Squadron Ace (35)

 

TIE/ag Aggressor – Sienar Specialist – 30

Sienar Specialist (26)

Dorsal Turret (2)

Ion Missiles (2)

 

TIE/ag Aggressor – Sienar Specialist – 30

Sienar Specialist (26)

Dorsal Turret (2)

Ion Missiles (2)

 

Total: 200/200

 

As for myself, I brought the Scum and Villainy list I initially designed for the second season of the Balance of The Force tournament, with everybody’s favorite lizard and some friends:

 

Lancer-class Pursuit Craft – •Ketsu Onyo – 76

•Ketsu Onyo – Black Sun Contractor (66)

Shadow Caster (1)

•Gamut Key (6)

Contraband Cybernetics (3)

 

YV-666 Light Freighter•Bossk – 68

•Bossk – Fearsome Hunter (60)

•Greedo (1)

•Zam Wesell (4)

Contraband Cybernetics (3)

 

HWK-290 Light Freighter – •Torkil Mux – 56

•Torkil Mux – Mercenary Miner (38)

Moldy Crow (16)

•Protectorate Gleb (2)

 

Total: 200/200

 

Now to the game.

 

BEWARE: RIGHT AFTER THIS OMINOUS DARTH VADER PICTURE, I WILL REVEAL HOW THE GAME TURNED OUT. IF YOU DON’T WANT SPOILERS, WATCH THE VIDEO BEFORE READING FURTHER!

 

 

Victory for the Scum and Villainy, 200-162! Well, that was brutal, only half a Ketsu remaining in the end… This game could have gone both ways. I was very afraid after my insanely ineffective first engagement, but killing two Interceptors in the same round after that was a relief. There was a lot of back and forth during the whole game, and our dices were… weird? Oscar certainly ran out of luck at some point… Anyway, great game, and thanks, Oscar!

 

So in the end I’m 5-4. Although to be fair I should say 4-4, since our good friend Kaplan and I couldn’t play our game and I had a bid… Not a mind-blowing performance. The first pod was ok, but the two others not so much. My MoV is not very good, and I don’t know where I will end on the ladder (currently I’m 73rd on 200, but there are quite a lot of games not played yet, so I’ll inevitably finish lower than that, maybe way lower…).

 

Anyway, that was fun. But it’s time to try new lists, for sure: I still enjoy my Malarus TIE/fo swarm, and might run it again in future tournaments or leagues, but right now is the good time to move on.

 

I’m attending two events in the near future, the 2nd season of the Balance of the Force tournament, as well as the 3rd season of the Rogue Outpost weekly league. In both tournaments, I will have to play different lists, and I’m quite excited about that. We’ll see what happens…

 

See you soon!
