Bear Wars II ?

Postby ScaredOfCrows » Tue Dec 16, 2014 1:54 pm

Thanks again to all involved in the first Bear Wars league. A total of 56 games played!

I'd like to run another next year. I'm thinking mid March as we will hopefully have a new faction by then and the store championships will be out of the way.

As there will be a 3rd faction there will be an ammendment to the format:

Players will either be able to select a 200 point hangar from a single faction as in season 1 or select 2 separate 100 point squads from different factions and choose before each game which one they will fly.

Everything seemed to work OK?

Please put any ideas or suggestions for me to ignore below!

Don't know if this would break things or not but could you have a pool of additional upgrades; so if you put something on a pilot they must take that but with 'spare' points you could buy a PTL or Assault Missile or Hull Upgrade which could be added to any ship (which is allowed by the rules) as an upgrade. I would see it being limited to 5 or 10% (or something like that) of your total points; so you couldn’t just take every type of upgrade or missile and pick and choose. The idea being to give a bit more flexibility in individual builds without losing the overall 'Hanger' dynamic.

How many people actually used a different list for each game? how many people used just one list the whole time?

I think with Scum being the new kids on the block we will see a LOT of them about, I liked the hangar idea but I ran the same 94 point list all the way until my last game!

I'm deffo up for playing in whatever format and any time you want to start it up again!

Surely that'd result in a league mainly comprised of S&V lists.

I like the proposed format. It doesn't penalise people who only have one faction, and allows others to mix a couple of factions.

I'm going for extremes - a scyk swarm and a two ship aggressor list...subject to viability...

Bluffreggie, Cai and Al were restricted by ship availability and even then I think only Dan ran the same list the whole time. Excluding me, everyone else used different builds throughout the season and well over half of the league players changed their squads around a significant amount.

Do you even results thread?

I probably would have swapped about more had the outrider been available earlier. And once I had it my two games used a list I didn't plan on (using Tarn and B wing instead of Corran).

Overall I like the hanger rules.

Really keen to get in on this when it comes around again - the Hanger idea appeals quite a bit, especially since it encourages a more modular approach to fleet design.

This sounds cool. I'd like to get involved if it starts running again.

I would be up for another swing at this!

In response to the questions, I used the same basic structure to my list in pretty much every game (Ewing), but then that's how I structured my hangar.

Looking forward to running a Scum & Villainy hangar with loads of different ships put in there with no overall synergy! :)

Any ideas on a start date now that S&V has a street date of 25th Feb? I'd be keen to get going in March.

Ian said a couple of weeks after S&V drops so we can all have time to work out our lists, so probably mid march would be my guess, Can't wait!!!!

For those of us who are on the fringes of the X-wing scene but interested in Bear Wars again, when is the Excelsior store championship?

"A player's hangar will be made up of 200 points worth of ships and upgrades. These will be the only ships and upgrades that can be used throughout the season. Before each game, players will select up to 100 points worth of pilots with their fixed upgrades (yes that's right, Luke cannot lend Biggs his astromech for the fortnight). This is intended to provide flexibility but also maintain some sort of player identity. Lists will be decided upon before the game starts and should be revealed simultaneously.

Hangars will be submitted to the organiser and published to the forum before the season begins."


Choose a 200 point list, and select units from this list (with fixed upgrade) before the game, to the usual points value.

I believe Ian was considering allowing a 200 point list from one faction, or 100 points from two factions, since Scum is a thing now.

Clearly this means that it's possible to just choose two 100 point lists, or it's possible to aim for a more flexible, transformational hanger.

So tempted by this, but I already have other commitments and not a huge amount of time. :(

Being smack talked by 10 year olds is actually a pleasant change of pace to my usual routine, actually. :shock:

Mine too. They have a lot of ships that start with "Tie..." and end in "...r"
