UTAH Regional January 5th 2019. Thanks to all the people I played. It was fun to be a part of the first Regional in Utah. The prize support at the store was amazing. Everybody left with something. 2 packs per player minimum, at 16th it went to 4 packs per, then at 8 it was 8 packs per, then 1st place got a booster box. All Across the Galaxy. The organizer also raffled prizes to people and gave the bottom 4 players (all new players) play-mats from his personal collection as well as a ton of cards and dice. There were also some cool unique promo cards, and of course the ffg prize support too. The store owner of Paragon City Games also gave everyone 10% off during the event.
34 Players. 6 Rounds of swiss, then cut to top 8 with single elimination all the way to the end (the organizer made this call to accommodate the out of state players (Idaho and Colorado) and others who drove from further in state with snowy weather)
Game 1: VS ePiett/Tie Pilot/Guavian Enforcer/Double Down Plot (he had 5 tie fighters and 3 tech team). I milled all his vehicles, controlled his dice, and won pretty quick. WIN
Game 2: VS eTobias/eHondo. SUPER close game! He had Fast Hands and X-8s on both characters and was completely out of cards and was able to barely kill my guys. I couldn't stop his last few damage. So close, great game! Thank you, Todd (I want to play that match up again). LOSS
Game 3: VS eVader/Cienna/Bitter Rivalry. He got a bunch of damage out and messed with my dice with The Best Defense, but didn't play versus mill very well, resolving his Vader shield sides for some reason and never using the Vader power action when I was messing with his dice. Game was over in 15-20 minutes. WIN
Game 4: VS eHan3/eQi'ra/No Allegiance. I got royally man handled in this one. I think he still had like 15 cards left when it ended. His most brutal play, if I had to just pick one, was when he played Double-CrossDouble Cross and resolved a Leia 2 Mill side against me when I had Commando Raid in my hand. Ok, I'm picking another crazy brutal move, he had 2 Han specials and had a hero and villain card in his hand. This one was rough. Good Job Dennis of Idaho, thanks for driving down to crush me. LOSS
Game 5: VS eYoda/eLeia3 - In which I did a special chain wrong. Close game, but he totally earned it, and I made a major mistake, which was embarrassing, and really messed with my chances to win this one. I had yoda showing 1 special and force speed on special. I used the first yoda die to turn the other to a special, then discarded the top of his deck, then I used my force speed to activate Leia, and do something else (resolve a focus?), then I wanted to go back and use my other yoda die special as part of the epic 3 die special chain and I was told I cannot keep resolving specials after doing force speed since I did other actions and that broke the chain. Ouch. I misunderstood and thought those actions were contained inside of the force speed resolution and therefore I could keep going with specials after that. Major bummer and embarrassing that I didn't know that. He had the light bow on each character and was raining the damage. I didn't use force illusion to stop 2 melee and wanted to use it to stop backup muscle, and learned that force illusion cannot stop backup muscle and lost the game... I really should have already known both of those things. I made some play mistakes and misunderstood some key rules, and the close game got away from me. I think he had one or two cards in hand and none in deck at this point (Zack, correct me if I'm wrong). LOSS
Game 6: VS 1 die Grand Inquisitor and 1 die Kylo2 (no plot (Fairly new player)). Fast win, he was new. We chatted about the rules and the game and how long his has been in. I helped him with some rules and reminded him when he forgot things, even when they hurt me. WIN
I got 20th out of 34 players with a 3-3 record for the day. However, the person above me in 19th was a 2-4, so I think something got reported wrong...
Let me know if you read the whole thing, I'm super curious if people actually read through. Also please comment on the rulings that I messed up on if you have anything to add. Overall, I am proud of my deck, I think I made a good Meta call, as similar decks crushed it this weekend elsewhere. Looking at the VA winner though, makes me wish those card differences between our decks, would not have wound up on the cutting room floor. I definitely toyed with Dex's Diner, Field Medic, Mind Trick, Motivate, and Strike Briefing. Motivate would have really helped with hand elimination. I can't believe he didn't use hit and run, but I think I'm the one missing something when I compare the two.
Thanks for reading!
