At times the mundane dogfighting of 100 point battles over and over again can certainly become a drag to all of us and Aces High is a great way to break that monotony of gaming in that way. With its unique set of tournament rules that put a real fun spin on the game the event will undoubtedly sell out fast just as it did last year.
The key difference for this X-wing event is players take a 125 point squad which opens up a lot of new opportunities for nasty combinations and builds previously unseen. All players must select an 'Ace' which must be a named pilot. It is this Ace that will record every shield and hull damage it does over the course of the day along with regular tournament scoring allowing bragging rights on two fronts.
I think this is a fantastic idea and such a good way to shake up the tournament scene and I'm very much looking forward to attending and have already secured my ticket. If you're into X-wing and you're in the Brisbane area then support the local scene and be sure to buy a ticket.
The next part is putting together a fun 125 point squad that proves to be semi effective. If you had 125 points to spend on a squad I'd be very keen to hear what would be your must takes and who do you think would be the best ace? Would it be classics such as Poe Dameron or the Inquisitor or because of the expanded points would you explore some of the lesser known pilots?
Thanks for reading.
