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.
