X-Wing 2013 World Top 4 – Match 1

Team Covenant has posted the first match of the X-Wing 2013 World Top 4. The video production quality is top notch, as usual. In match 1 Jonathan G. faces Paul Heaver Both players are Rebel, which might sound boring, but it’s a great match.

Paul has the pilot skill advantage with 3 ships that higher than Johnathan’s rookies. His two B-wings are equipped with Advanced Sensors. I’d give him the maneuverability advantage, even though the dial on B-wings is terrible. Paul has a slight hit point advantage: 26 hits compared to John’s 20. 6 sounds like a lot, but B-wings only have 1 agility. Biggs will hopefully be able to force some shots upon himself at range 3, instead of his squishier B-wing counterparts. For more information read Paul’s blog post about his Worlds list.

John has Luke Skywalker at PS 9 which gives him one shot before Paul. He had better make it count! Luke is fairly tanky with his innate evasion ability, R2-D2 for shield regeneration, and a shield upgrade. It looks his strategy will be to use Luke to absorb some critical hits and regenerate them. Dangerous on his best pilot, but it could pay off.
