Exhibition Match: TIE Salad vs. Han/Jake

Howdy holonet,

This is a new format of video we’re trying out, where we play exhibition matches rather than commenting on recorded games from tournaments. The idea here is to let you hear from the players in real time to get an idea of what we’re thinking, while in tournaments the players aren’t quite so generous to their opponents. We’re generally going to stick to top squads, but occasionally will throw some fun stuff into the mix. For this edition, we’ve got TIE Salad (Ben’s Roanoke Regional list) and Han/Jake (Derek’s Critical Hit Games Store Championship list):

TIE Salad:
Omicron Group Shuttle w/Palpatine
Alpha Interceptor w/Autos
Wampa
Scourge w/Crackshot
Howlrunner w/Crackshot

Han/Jake:
Han w/Lone Wolf, Luke, C3PO, Engine Upgrade, Falcon Title
Jake w/Push the Limit, Veteran Instincts, Autothrusters, Proton Rockets, and Test Pilot

We played the match twice, switching squads between games.

(This second video may still be processing; we’ve got games to get to this morning…)
