Dit weekend was het wereldkampioenschap X-Wing in de US en Nand is met de titel gaan lopen !
Super prestatie van een super toffe kerel ! Cool
België aan de top.

Hij speelde met een Dengaroo variant en heeft een supertraject afgelegd over 2 dagen heen.

Kudos to him !

En ik ben blij dat hij binnekort op onze eigen Xhammer X-Wing Open gaat aantreden ... beware ! Smile

Een brit op het FFG forum vat het heel mooi samen ... de X-Wing top is geen US-only clubke meer ! BigGrin

Hi everyone, this is Andrew Pattison of the 186th Squadron, based in London, UK. Several of our players were at Worlds this last weekend, and those that were not, have been following the coverage obsessively over the weekend, from both official and unofficial sources.

The overwhelming message is one of diversity. List diversity of course, but also true diversity in player origins. This year has been amazing for European X-wing, with the System Open series and several massive national events. The number of people playing has increased, and the standard of play has matched that increase. For the first time, i feel that the popularity of the game over here at a high level, is such that players are prepared to spend time and a lot of money to make that trip to Worlds.

At the highest levels of play this made one heck of a difference. Lets take a quick look at the top 16. 8 of them were American, and 8 were from Europe. Of the top 8, 5 were from Europe, and in the top 4, 2 were from Europe. In the final, an American played a Belgian.

Make no mistake everyone, this is absolutely fantastic.

Above all, I wanted to ask people to be nice to each other. For possibly the first time, we are living in a truly global X-wing environment. Pay attention to the results of foreign events, and instead of writing off the results, learn from them. The best part about the whole thing is a huge melting pot of ideas and tactics that has come about as a result of so many different national/local metas coming together. I would bet that every single one of us saw at least one list that has made us re-evaluate how we think about this game. I'm certainly more inspired than I've been in a while, and I'll be making the trip out next May if I can get a ticket. Maybe I'll even try and take the Jesper Hills #HwkMeta to the next level.

Finally, I wanted to thank the Internet as a whole for the amazing level of coverage across all platforms. Even those of us who were not there felt part of this event, and that is another great thing that the community should be proud of.

thanks for reading, and remember, fly casual extends beyond the gaming table


GO BELGIUM !

amai schitterend resultaat ThumpUp

Moeten we dan ook geen fan-signeer-ruimte voorzien zodat de world champ handtekeningen kan uitdelen aan zijn fans ? BigGrin
