Outer Rim Mystics killed Thrawn in his sleep.

 

They probably killed Thrawn with Sith. But not with Navy. Between Tarkin, Moment of Triumph and the stormtrooper assault team there are lost of ways to get rid of them. Also Pilot Vader and Thrawn works too.

 

I guess they are just another tool for Jedi that the DS has to find answers for. I still wish they weren't Jedi. I mean I get the theme they went for but that ability should have been somewhere else entirely.

Where can I see who is in the top spots? Is my boy David Tietze still in first?

He was on table 4 for the last round. Unless he doesn't get swept, he should make it in.

Interesting (perhaps meaningless) bit of info.  According to the info I've compiled from past tourneys. 

 

4 people have made Top 16 each of the 3 Worlds tourneys - Matt Wehner (Flip), Mick Cipra (defending champ), Zach Bunn and Todd Vanderwalker.  That's pretty darn impressive. 

 

4 others are making their 2nd Worlds Top 16 cut - Nathanael Tripp (Ketricel), Tyler Parrott (davflamerock), and Tom Melucci and Matthew Davey.

 

3 people made Top 16 at Gen. Con this year and Worlds - Dante DeMille, Tom Melucci and Chris Kowall.

 

Once again the top players seem to have proven themselves to be just that by where they've finished at these big events.  Congrats to all in the top 16 and good luck to everyone tomorrow.  Looking forward to watching any games FFG bothers to stream from the top cut. 

 

I hope people don't mind me listing their screen names when I knew them. 

 

Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe Matthew Davey is Toggle, Dante D. is Utinni and Chris Kowall is tierdal. 

 

Edited:  Didn't mean to shortchange Tom M.  Thanks TGO.

And Tyler's first worlds was last year, so he's made top cut every time he's attended.

I was watching the x-wing final earlier today, and I will admit that I am not a fan of games where dice play a significant role, but to watch someone win for the 3rd time in a row is definitely crazy.

 

Perhaps the dice play much less of a role then I thought.

 

Sorry for falling off topic, yodaman's statement was similar to my thoughts during the x-wing finals.

Team Covenant did an interview with Paul Heaver and he has only lost 1 game of X wing the last 3 years.

I assume that is at Worlds because he totally does actually lose. He just brings his A game and really strong meta call lists to Worlds.

I was rooting the for the kid but I knew it would be an uphill battle. Nathan played pretty well but he was overrun by a failure of the dice. While Paul may have still won the match, I think in this instance the dice undid Nathan's strategy and turned the game more into a rout than a contest. 

 

I can't speak for the other games though. Paul didn't lose one and a lot of the game is about positioning to make sure you can mitigate the effects of the dice.

This is exciting. I saw Zach Bunn playing DSSDs in one of the FFG Twitter pics, which definitely piqued my interest.
