I just edited the post above that has the squads so now all 10 squads are listed as well as who played them. I only have screennames for a handful. Most are not regular SWMinis players.

I placed 5 maps down on tables and the maps didn't rotate. The players did. It was "arbitrary" more than random. I tended to put higher-ranked players at the higher tables, but also moved players down to lower tables to try to make sure players didn't play on the same map twice. These are the five maps, but I might not remember the exact map locations correctly for a couple of them:

Table 1: Gangster's Vault
Table 2: Rhen Var
Table 3: Spynet HQ (or maybe this was Table 4)
Table 4: Asteroid Base (or maybe this was Table 3)
Table 5: Anchorhead

Round 1
T1: Jango (0) vs GGDAC (3)
T2: ImpBoba (3) vs Mace (1)
T3: Maul (1) vs AnakinRex (3)
T4: Nightsisters (3) vs GenoBattlemasters (1)
T5: Han&Lando (3) vs BobaMC (0)

Round 2
T1: Mace (3) vs Han&Lando (0)
T2: AnakinRex (3) vs Nightsisters (1)
T3: GGDAC (1) vs ImpBoba (3)
T4: BobaMC (0) vs Jango (3)
T5: Maul (3) vs GenoBattlemasters (1)

Round 3
T1: BobaMC (3) vs GenoBattlemasters (1)
T2: Maul (0) vs GGDAC (3)
T3: Han&Lando (0) vs Jango (3)
T4: AnakinRex (1) vs ImpBoba (3)
T5: Mace (1) vs Nightsisters (3)

Final standings:
1. ImpBoba 9pts, 3-0
2. AnakinRex 7pts, 2-1 (20 SoS)
3. GGDAC 7pts, 2-1 (19 SoS)
4. Nightsisters 7pts, 2-1 (15 SoS)
5. Jango 6pts, 2-1
6. Mace 5pts, 1-2
7. Maul 4pts, 1-2
8. Han&Lando 3pts, 1-2 (14 SoS)
9. GenoBattlemasters 3pts, 0-3 (14 SoS)
10. BobaMC 3pts, 1-2 (12 SoS)

We planned to use the Skirmish Tracker app, but during round 1 something went wrong. We were already playing round 1's match-ups, but must've hit a back button or something because the app generated new round 1 match-ups. It was too late to move people, and we couldn't get the original match-ups back, so I did the rest of it by hand. (Pairings may not have been exact - I didn't go down to SoS to figure pairings. It was just random when players were tied on points.)

And I definitely screwed up the tiebreaker, not taking time to look up the actual tiebreaker rules - sorry guys. I went straight to strength of schedule - adding up points of the opponents as indicated in the parentheses above. And I even screwed up the addition, having #8 above #9 when in fact they were tied. The actual tiebreakers go like this:

Floor Rules wrote:
1. Total Wins-The player with the most wins.
2. Head to Head Matchups – The player who has won any head to head matchups would
be ahead of the loser in a head to head matchup.
3. SOS 1- The players strength of schedule minus the player's worst win.
4. SOS 2- As 3, factoring only the defeated players.
5. SOS 3-The players full strength of schedule
6. Roll Off-tied players will roll a D20, highest roll placing above the rest.


Based on that, 2nd place through 4th place still wind up the same. They are tied on total wins. They didn't all play each other, so skip step 2. Then it shouldn't be straight SoS but instead SoS minus worst win, which comes out to:
2. AnakinRex 7 (20-4 = 16 SoS)
3. GGDAC 7 (19-4 = 15 SoS)
4. Nightsisters 7 (15-3 = 12 SoS)

But 8th place through 10th place would have changed. GenoBattlemasters had three 1pt losses but no wins while the other two each had a win, so GenoBattlemasters drop to 10th place based on the first tiebreaker. Han&Lando beat BobaMC, so they would be ahead based on the second tiebreaker. This is what it should have been:
8. Han&Lando 3 (1 total win, H2H win over BobaMC)
9. BobaMC 3 (1 total win, H2H loss to BobaMC)
10. GenoBattlemasters 3 (0 total wins)

My own quick play report...

I played the Mace squad.

Round 1 against Imperial Boba (the eventual winner) on Rhen Var. He made two really good plays. First, he split his forces. Normally, that's not a great idea in Star Wars Minis, but for this match-up, it worked. Mace and Foul went to chase down Boba. My shooters tried to stay back, but with his split forces, his shooters tracked down my shooters and took them out before they did much. (I think Sev put 40 on Boba, but that was it.) Mace took several shots from Boba did eventually track down and kill him, which was almost all I needed to get my point. (We needed 63 points for a 1pt loss.) Foul was dead and he had too many troopers remaining. Particularly the Sniper, who eventually killed Mace. The other troops weren't doing much, needing really high rolls to hit Mace. 0-1, 1pt.

Round 2, I played against Han&Lando on Gangster's Vault. This pretty much all came down to one great Force Repulse. I damaged Foul, too, but I was able to get all of the other squad's important pieces in one big Repulse. It didn't kill anyone, but after that everyone was so close to dead that almost every activation meant I was defeating another enemy. 1-1, 4pts.

Round 3, I played against Nightsisters on Anchorhead. This was my most interesting match of the day. I made a really bad play, then got lucky, then lost on a great example of needing to know your opponent's squad.

First, my really bad play... I was out-activated with a closed door between us. If I let him open the door while I was all activated, he would have lit up Mace with 3 lightnings while he was adjacent to Foul. No bueno. But my really bad play was opening the door with the Antarian Ranger while putting him in front of and adjacent to Mace... in a square that did NOT prevent my opponent from targeting Mace. Not sure what I was thinking there. I should have been a square away and NOT adjacent to Mace. In any case, Mace took one Lightning directly and the Antarian Ranger took another. Mace was hurt but swung at whatever was adjacent. After basing Palpatine, Palps took some Lightning damage himself, but pretty quickly Mace, Foul, and the Ranger were all dead. Sev was lighting up everyone as much as he could. At one point, I needed a couple really high rolls to hit and kill Palpatine with Sev... which I got. (That was the "me getting lucky" part.) And when Palpatine was dead, he had no more Lightning. The witches couldn't hit much and kept swinging and missing at my 10hp Sev, who shot them down one by one. Finally, I killed the Probe Droid while I was based... bad move. The Probe Droid killed Sev with Self Destruct. I suppose players who have been around since Rebel Storm would've remembered that. I never played against a Probe Droid much (maybe never?). So I did not remember that. He still had his medic alive, which was enough to secure the win for him.

Another part of not knowing his squad... for some reason I thought all the witches were getting Renewal (probably because I was thinking of the NS Mother), but they were just able to use Palpatine's Force points. Without them not having renewal, if I had simply spread out completely so I was never adjacent to an ally, that might have been enough to secure the win. Charge in and base them and force them to kill themselves or use their ineffectual regular attacks. I didn't think I'd be able to wait him out, so I didn't think of keeping Foul away from Mace. (And the Antarian placement was a mistake no matter how you count it.)

1-2, 5pts
