Saturday saw the first Fated Festival run at Moor House Adventure Centre. 6 Pilots launched to face each other in what was planned to be a 3 round Swiss Event. The players and lists were:
- Dave | Scum
Contracted Scout, Cartel Spacer, Cartel Spacer, Binayre Pilot, Binayre Pilot
- Ray | Rebel
Han Solo, Ezra
- Chris | Rebel
Miranda Doni, Lothal Rebel
- Scott | Rebel
Han Solo, Tala Squadron, Bandit, Bandit
- Ali | Imperial
Darth Vader, Soontir Fel, The Inquisitor
- Stu | Scum
A good turn out of factions, and nice to see no overly ‘meta’ lists for what was always intended to be a fun tournament.
- Round 1 Results
Scott vs Stu – Modified win to Scott
Ray vs Chris – Win to Ray
Dave vs Ali – Modified win to Dave
- Round 2 Results
Ray vs Dave – Win to Ray
Scott vs Chris – Win to Chris
Stu vs Ali – Win to Stu
- Round 3 Results
Ray vs Stu – Win to Stu
Chris vs Ali – Win to Chris
Scott vs Dave – Win to Dave
Plugging the final round in to TOME, we realised that it may come down to MOV, as we had three players on 10 points. We decided to play a ‘cut-to-two’ if needed. And we did!
So we geared up for a final showdown between Stu’s Scum and Chris’ Rebels. After a short break, we kicked off a 70 minute final round. Stu and Chris played a very close game – both lost their ‘big’ pilots Miranda and Dengar – which left Guri and the Lothal Rebel in a one on one dogfight. In the end, Guri’s defence dice won out – killing the Lothal Rebel to net Stu the win.
On a personal note, I’d like to thank all of the players for making it a great day – every game played was a real challenge and great fun. Id also like to thank the guys at Worhamma / Flipside for putting on the event. Finally – I have to give Ray a shout for running a really fun tournament. Cant wait till the next one!
