Alright so I’ve gotten a little of my swagger back, won a few games in a row and I’m feeling decent. Right now I’m leaning towards 2 blues, a tala, a gold with r3-a2, btl and tlt and a proto with AT’s. It’s a small variant of a list I had a lot of success with in wave 6. I won’t go into all the details of why I like it cause there’s many but I’ll just say I feel like I’ve got a chance against most everything with it. Rebel Swarms have always kind of been my bread and butter ever since I started playing the game really so I’ve certainly got experience with it.
I’ve also found out that the initial Swiss rounds for Worlds will be 8 freaking rounds! I’ve never played more than 7 games in a day and even that was pretty rough, usually after 4 I’m ready to call it a day. It will be a marathon. So with 256 players that means only one will go undefeated, 7 will go 7-1 and 28 will go 6-2. Of those 28 only 7 will get in, 1/4. Not sure how I feel about that overall, with 7 rounds it was going to be 2 7-0’s get in and all of the 14 6-1’s were in as well. Going 6-2 obviously is a lot easier than going 6-1, I feel pretty confident in my ability to go 6-2 but as far as making the top 25% for MOV that’s something else. I think with the new rules for large ships and MOV I should be able to finish pretty high up, I’ve never been close to tabled with this list, almost every game I’ve lost has been very close. Gonna play in a tournament tomorrow and run this, will provide update afterwards, winning it would be another good confidence boost but we’ll see.
