X-Wing Testing for Month 2 and random job silliness...


Looking at running a fair number of different things for the next League day…  It is not looking like we’ll have access to the Wave 9 stuff before the 11th of September, so we’ll be going with what we have…

Simple enough build..  N’Dro starts on a Flank, the other 2 on the opposite one.  Go fast, hit hard and hope they die first…  The Autoblaster Turret for the (usually) 3 Dice Attack that cannot be dodged backed by Predator…  Might swap it for VI and upgrade the Bombs perhaps…  But this is pretty simple as I said.  HAVE to get close to the Imperial Aces or say, IG-88/Dengar that I need to put some hits onto…

The other one I am throwing around a bit is:
Kavil — Y-Wing

The Rebel 3 B list might be a safer bet…  So I’ll likely try to get in some test games with both of these builds…  I got in some practice with the Miranda build, but I am fairly confident that will not work so well for me…  I need something to take down Imperial Aces and Dengaroo…  Oddly, no one played it last Month, but Imps were EVERYWHERE…  And against the Aces, even 4 4 Dice Attacks get shrugged off and almost never actually hit, so the TLT is no longer the answer it once was...

Work is...  Well, we are continuing I guess.  It does appear as if the the title change has been at the least delayed if not derailed.  So, I'll wait it out I guess and see what happens.  On the major plus side, met with some folks at another IT organization and there are a good number of jobs opening up starting...  Well, now.  The first JUST got posted.  I do not think that one is a fit for me, but there ARE several I'll be applying for.  I did go to the trouble to get that silly advanced degree and all, so time to move on perhaps if there is no chance of moving up in this organization....  No hurry, I still have a good job, but there is a difference between a job and a career.  Ad it is time I think to pay attention to my career...
