Last year, Nand Torfs took out the title of the 2016 X-Wing World Champion with his 'Dengaroo' squad, and although this year he just missed out on the top spot, he chose a Rebel squad that isn't a typical regeneration build. Whilst part 1 took the champion Justin Phua into the spotlight, this post sheds some light on what is capable of getting to the premiere tables in X-Wing to contend a title.
Reviewing this year's X-Wing Worlds squads is a fascinating way to see how the 'meta' is changing, but also to watch players grow. With the 2017 Worlds dusted and a new champion announced, it will be interesting to see if Wave XI will shake up the meta once again. Let's break down Justin Phua's squad - the one he used to fight his way to the top in incredibly well played games.
