Kommen wir zu einem weiteren Spieler aus Italien. Hiermit möchte ich euch Giulio Taddei vom Ludic X-Wing Team vorstellen. Ich traf ihn 2016 in Lucca auf der dortigen Kashyyyk Open wo Giulio den Top 8 Cut erreichte. Sehr gefreut hat mich, das ich Giulio auf der diesjährigen System Open Series in Nürnberg erneut traf und freue mich auf weitere Treffen!
1. Since when have you been playing X-Wing?
I’ve been playing X-Wing since March 2015, actually Marco Turchiano a Ludic X-Wing Team member and old friend of mine let me try this game in a local store of my neighbourhood and I fell in love.
2. What is or was your favorite 100 Point squadron?
Actually, I don’t have one, I may tell you that the 100 point squadrons I’ve been playing the most are Dash+Corran and Wes+Biggs+Corran.
3. Do you have a favorite ship or pilot that you try an include in your squads? (Due to the ability, model, …)
Corran Horn, is actually my most favourite pilot ever. All the time I can, and the current status of the metagame allow me, I try to build a squadron with this ship in the 100 points at my disposal. I’m really in love with his double tap ability, and I’m really in love with his gamestyle as completely build upon passive skills like green move and charge shield back or fcs or the double bash.
The next Top Gun Pilot is nobody else than Mike (Dennis). Not Magic Mike, but he does look similar.
He is also a great X-Wing player and member of the best X-Wing Team in the UK.
The 186th Squadron is a team like the „Deadly Pink flying Unicorns of Death, Doom and Destruction“ except they have different shirt-colors and like us they have also great players and because of they are from UK they know how to drink pints.
Mike also has an own YouTube channel where he talks about and all sorts of games and gives short previews/reviews.
Check it out.
1. Since when have you been playing X-Wing?
I started playing X-Wing in July 2014. I believe wave 4 was just coming out, or had just come out. The first list I ran was 6 bandits and Jan Ors flying a HWK-290 (yay wave 4!). The first list I ran, which was remotely competitive, was 2 Academy Pilots, 3 Alpha Interceptors and Howlrunner with a Hull Upgrade. There weren’t any 1 point EPTs at the time (other than Adrenaline Rush), so I had a 1 point initiative bid. Just as I was beginning to get really good at it players realised the power of Whisper, became really good at flying her and ruined everything!
2. What is or was your favorite 100 Point Squadron?
I think that my favourite list remains aces and a support. It was Whisper/Soontir/Doom Shuttle, then it became Vader/Soontir/Palp Shuttle and then Fenn/Teroch/Manaroo. Currently I’m flying Whisper with VI, FCS, ACD and Agent Kallus with two Delta Defenders with the title x7. It’s almost like I have come full circle back to the Wave 4 meta, but with a few critical differences! I’ll always have a special place in my heart for the list I took to second place at the Nordic nationals Whisper with VI, FCS, ACD and Rebel Captive; Soontir with PTL, Royal Guard title, Targeting Computer and Autothrusters and the Lambda-Class Shuttle with Darth Vader crew.
Willkommen zu einer neuen Ausgabe Top Gun. Mit dem Spieler Alessandro Marmorini. Wie der Name vermuten lässt kommt Alessandro aus Italien und ist dort der Kapitän der italienischen Nationalmannschaft und trat unter anderem mit dem italienischen Team bei der ETC 2016 in X-Wing an.
Zudem konnte Alessandro bei der italienischen Meisterschaft die Swissrunden mit 6-0 beenden, wurde allerdings von Tom Reed im Halbfinale besiegt.
Auch ich durfte auf der italienischen System Open Series Kashyyyk in Lucca gegen Alessandro spielen und es war mir eine Ehre gegen einen sehr guten Spieler Italiens antreten zu dürfen! (Siehe auch: Spielbericht zur Kashyyyk System Open Series)
The next one in our Top Gun Player Series is Joe Desmond (Worlds Top 16, Regional 16/17 winner from Mynock, USA). He is one of the youngest players, but also one of the best. As I was his age I played with my beer bong, and in this category I was one of the 16 best in the world. But maybe, if he is old enough he will be one of the best in this game, too. Where the challenge is bigger I don´t know, but nobody ask me for an interview. So X-Wing will be more interesting, headache you will get from both of them. Everybody who plays a big tournament on a high level know what I mean.
