Err, I have played a grand total of about two games played. I would prefer people didn't tell me which pilot I can and can't use while learning just because of the perceived meta, and it's not just pilots. I have 4 ships, for one I have only taken one pilot who's a named one, if i can't take them I can't take the ship so I only have three ships to choose from. I think less rules is better is probably a fair summation.

For purposes of clarity.

All players can put any ships they want in their hangar and are encouraged to run any ships they choose in any of their games (within the rules outlined).

Please don't let comments by others in this thread influence what you want to play with!

Play what you want Dave. I will be. If there are 2 wedges. I will refer to mine as "Cool Trevor" or something.

If we have fairly even sides and Ian is going to do match ups, then it will most likely only arise at the higher level of the qualifiers when player 'A' must face off vs player 'B' and then they will both have to turn their tactical skills up a notch to counter their equal handicap.

It was just a little idea to add a little fluffy quirk to the league… but thats just my thought on it. Its Ian's baby but take a consensus if we feel its a crazy adjustment. I'm cool either way. I'll be upping my game for this no matter what.

Ian - Only include it if you feel the league will benefit from it. If you don't, then don't put it in. Its your league mate, and was just an idea as per my above.


Unnecessary rules complication for one. If it grates against your fluff sensibilities, pretend that your Wedge Antilles is an unknown fighter ace from a different part of the galaxy.

How about we actually play some games and let people use the toys they've bought before deciding to bringing in arbitary restrictions on how the 'game should be played'. If it turns out every single rebel player brought wedge, and every single imp player brought echo, then yeah maybe think about restrictions for next time round.

I also thought, possibly mistakenly, that the pairings were going to be imp vs. rebels, hence the emphasis on equal number of rebel and imperial players, no?

Everyone plays everyone originally. See 1st post. We will, however, move to having 2 or 3 conferences if the 20 or so interested players submit lists. Details will follow on Wednesday 17th when I know how many are playing. I want to get it done in around 10 weeks at most.

So, I'm glad there are no restrictions on named characters. My hangar consists of a massive 5 ships, 4 of which are named... I'm excited, man. I can't wait to conquer some rebel scum in the name of our glorious Emperor!

I feel I've heard that somewhere before... Something about a dickbag Gungan suggesting that the Supreme Chancellor should be granted emergency powers?

Thankfully, Gungans never had space travel. Apparently, they relied on the Naboo to get off world...

It looks like you've read my hangar list from here :-P

There's nothing to indicate you have/haven't read it in my outbox, I'm sure someone more technologically saavy could check though. I trust your integrity, plus there's not that much tailoring you can actually do with flexible 200pts hangers. Thought I'd point out you spelt (or spelled if you prefer American) submission wrong btw :-P

Are you allowing grudge matches in the early pairings by the way?

Thought they stayed in the sender's outbox until they were opened by the recipient? They seem to at my end...

Oh yeah, no M! Copy pasted that to everyone as well, see the replies! But that's clearly a typo. HangAr, on the other hand, is spelt correctly (nearly everywhere)!

Personally, I had tooled up one ship; pretty much just because I could, not for any real plan. When I came to look at turning the hanger into a 100pt squad I had no flexability. With a little bit of fine tuning (and the physical purchase of another ship at lunchtime :oops: ) I think it's all looking much better. Just need to check one thing at home tonight and I'll resubmit.

You have sent two messages titled V2 Hangar? One at 10:36 and one at 10:41...

If they are identical, fine. But if not, you're gonna have to clarify!
