I played Ikari in three tournaments this past year. One of the tournaments was my state's largest where I placed 17th out of 46, I have mostly had mixed results with them. For the core I used to run the Keisotsu with Tanko ML and MSV2 Brawler sniper, but I already had trouble using the sniper in active before the ballistic skill nerf to mixed links so I drop the sniper now and just run the core with the Tanko ML. I think the Daiyokai and Tanko haris is great and will often take a Brawler specialist in it. I like to run Scarface and Cordelia duoed but they don't usually stay together very long. This is the list I ran at the big tournament, it's 1 point over now with Yojimbo's new points cost but you could run the multi marksman rifle Daiyokai for 300 pts: Tsunami Bomb Krug ────────────────────────────────────────────────── GROUP 1 7 2 2 KEISOTSU (Lieutenant) Combi Rifle / Pistol, CC Weapon.

(0 | 14) 4.5 SWC | 301 Points Open in Infinity Army One thing I do that I haven't seen anyone else try is run the Yuan Yuan boarding shotguns. With the N4 nerf to Yuan Yuans you have less orders to work with, but I think the boarding shotgun profile still sort of works because they are more deadly than the basic profile. I'll admit that Desperados are still probably better overall though. I don't see much changing for the way I like to play Ikari over the next season, I might try to work an EVO in for missions with the bonus.
