In the moments leading up to prime opponent Sean and I building our lists in secret for a battle in the Lab, we don't discuss builds or tactics at all. But sometimes, there's just a listy vibe in the air, and we both settle on something similar. It happens all the time, and this game was no exception! I thought I'd do something out of character for me- a Rebel list with no Assault Frigates, no Corvettes, and B-Wings! That is like, mirror universe Steven with an evil Goatee.
Sean also decided on a bomber-centric build. I was excited to see where this thing went!
Sean elected to go first, and chose Hyperspace assault from my objectives. Naturally, I placed Yavaris and 3 Bs in the Hyperspace Assault. I setup my Nebs to try and maximize range from his VSDs.
Conclusion: Man, this was a super fun game! I think screwing up Salvation's navigate early on is what cost me. I didn't hate the B-Wings this game!
