    Order spam. The concept of the link has already been tested by me in the varuna: 2 main shooters + 4 regulars to replace the fallen sniper. The sensor helps against any infiltrators and TO around points. A pair of Aleph skirmishers in camo can do a lot of things. Also classic pare of bulleteer and peacemaker.

    The main idea was that the zone with tikbalang will be mine, and the tikbalang itself is very annoying with it’s climbing+, mimetism and mines (in 4th game it worked exclusively as an assassin of everything and tanked as many as possible for 2 rounds, in the fifth it worked as it should). Link exclusively defensive.

    Arqw won initiative and decided to go first.

    First, coordinated daylamis got rid of my sniper, and then the farzan came closer to my link, but did nothing. Mukhtar killed one lamp-bot, but then lost 2 or 3 ftfs to the second and retreated.

    In my turn, I killed lasiq and farzan. Bulleteer finished off the daylamis, but could not deal muttawiah.

    On the second turn, one of the mutts ran through the mine and bulleteer, but still got to the link and killed one regular. The second mutt isolated naga with intuitive. Mukhtar finished off bulleteer.

    In my turn, I brought the paratrooper to my opponent's deployment, but naffatun changed it's face thanks to an alert from hawwa from the center of the table and akalis decided to stay to see what would happen next. Bagh-mari with a hmg looked at hawwa, but suddenly tuareg-sniper appeared through the woods and critted bagh-mari with a shock sniper. Dart ran to opponent's deployment and killed mukhtar.

    The third round. The opponent’s paratrooper comes out, gets to the datatreker in the central building and kills the maximum of my bots along the way. Coordinated naffatuns killed my paratrooper who did nothing at close range with a shotgun.

    At my turn, dart finishes an enemy doctor, but catches isolate and does not have time to get to hawwa. Naga on her flank finishes muttawiah and remains silent to secure HVT.

    Defeat 2-4. I made many mistakes, was not aggressive enough with a paratrooper and skirmishers, missed opponent’s paratrooper because didn't deploy at least one of the flashlights to guard the edge of the table.

    I won the initiative decided to go first.

    Peacemaker passes on the left flank closer to rodoks, but noctifer appeared. I shot Imetrons because noctifer was too far, but he missed, and imetron near opponent’s deployment survived. I movув closer, but sphinx appeared and tried to kill the auxbot with spitfire. I shot sphinx with shotgun through imetron, wounded him, and burnt noctifer, who missed again. Peacemaker with auxbot are still alive. I burnt sphinx's TO and wounded second time, but the auxbot was finally killed. Peacemaker traded with rodok-hmg. Dart threw E/M grenades and isolated sphinx, but was burnt. Link moved a little closer and wounded sphinx third time.

    In his turn, the opponent healed Rodok-hmg and tried to kill the sniper, who controlled the nearest exits from the building, but died. Slave repaired the Sphinx (completed ”Test run” classifed objective), which killed the bagh-mari-hmg, but at the same time died from the regular with a combi.

    The second round: Naga came closer to the opponent and killed Kiss (+made Coup de Grace), hacked bit and shot the doctor-worm. Engineer's servant took beacon and run back. Finished sphinx.

    At this moment we decided to finish.

    10-1 in my favor. I was once again convinced that noctifer either crits or misses all.

    The opponent won wip roll, but decided to deploy second. In order not to be substituted at all, I decided to go first, because the OSS is good in attack, but not so much in defense and even with a large amount of TO, I can still find it with sensors.

    [​IMG]

    On the first turn, the link kills dakini-sniper, sneaks to the center point and the discover-shoots naga on the right flank. Peacemaker happily moves closer to dakini link, losing the bot on the way from a dakini with a combi standing on the line, and then, through her dead body, shoots everyone except deva and csu with a shotgun. On the left flank, naga puts a mine under proxy5 and shoots her.

    [​IMG]

    In his turn, the opponent kills peacemaker with a survived deva, but loses csu because of shotgun template. Proxy2 appears in the center and kills 2 members of the link with one shot, but dies from dart's viral bow. Deva runs on her flank, kills bagh-mari-sniper in the negative distance, but at the same time can not finish off bagh-mari-hmg in his zero distance.

    On the second turn he kills deva, bulleteer cleans the left flank and comes closer to the opponent's deployment. Naga activates the left point, link activates the right.

    Proxy1 desperately runs into the center and tries to do at least something. Kills a specialist from the link controlling the point, but naga dodges.

    In my turn, dart finishes proxy1, bulleteer cleans opponent's deployment and the doctor-datatreker with a synchronized xenotech calmly does everything else.

    10-0 in my favor. Aleph specialists are the best specialists in panoceania.

    I won the initiative and decided to go first.

    Tikbalang shot kriza, but wounded only once and he retreated behind a stone. Went to the opponent's sniper, but got stunned. Bulleteer drove along the left flank, killing the lamp-bot, warcor and TRbot. Dart came to kriza and finished him. I decided to shot enemy sniper with my own, which was a big mistake and fall unconscious.

    In his turn, the opponent landed Raoul Spector behind dart's back and in the blind zone of bulleteer, killed everyone. He came on the left flank and wounded tikbalang twice. Kekler with redfury tried to finish off my sniper, but did not hit even once, caught lamp and remained lying on his roof. The doctor treated kriza.

    [​IMG]

    On the second turn, the engineer slightly repaired tikbalang, who then shot Raoul, finally killed securitate-sniper, climbed the high column and blew off the kriza and kekler. Instead of moving back, I decided to finish off the doctor. (Perhaps the second mistake, but who knew that the only one capable of fighting Perseus in the 3man link would be able to turn everything around)

    In the opponent's turn Perseus smoked, came closer and wounded tikbalang, who then hid behind the container. Smoked more, walked closer and finished it off tjgether with peacemaker. Climbed onto a container in the center of the table. From time to time, in between, he led firefights with lamp-bots, but no one got into anyone.

    My third turn. The doctor killed sniper. I reformed the link, but died fighting with Perseus. Lamp-bots provoked Perseus to threw smokes, then they went closer to the center along with baggage-bot. I put multiscanner and brought xenotech in the center line.

    Further, Perseus smoked a couple of times more, finished baggage-bot and came to the zone closest to me, while securitates remain in the center.

    [​IMG]
    This little bastard!

    I didn’t run to the center with lamps, so I overdominated Perseus together with Intelcom card. Opponent controls the center and its zone, but did not put multiscanner. I control my zone, but put.

    Draw 2-2. It was not necessary to shoot his sniper with my own on the same values, but only 2 cubes against one. Then he would force Perseus to act more carefully and would slow him down considerably.

    The opponent won WIProll and goes first.

    Libertos passes on the left flank and exchanges for 2 of my lamp-bots and a mine. Clipsos passes on the right flank and kills peacemaker, but at the same time burns from the auxbot. Chaksas are moved closer to the center to score zones and control the passages.

    Tikbalang rises to the roof of the nearest house, kills Chaksa-trbot and kamael-lieutenant with taagma who were inaccurately lying on the roofs. Bulleteer occupies the right flank and stands in Suppressive, making it impossible for sukeul to exit and controlling the passage in the center.

    Scored same amount of zones.

    Opponent moved closer, but could not beat Bulleteer even with Gao-Rael-Spitfire, who at first order lost pokemon and a wound in ftf, and then caught a crit.

    Dart climbed on the roof in the center and killed Chaksa-datatracker, as well as part of the triad. I secured my side completely.

    Already I will have more zones, because dart is expensive, and my opponent is blocked in his last quadrant. He cannot overcome bulleteer and my sniper and we decided to finish.

    8-3 in my favor. Peacemaker perfectly lured out clipsos. Dart and tikbalang climb on the walls and still know how to surprise.

    As a result, I took 10th place out of 83.

    The sectorial is interesting and I highly recommend it for all pano players, who is looking for diversity in gameplay using the best specialists of pano (yes, nagas), a lot of camo (and there nagas can also be used along with dart) / mimetism and mines (Guess who. That's right, a little less than all these gooks in the trees from LI to TAG can mine the whole table with mines already during the deployment.). Not as direct as Neoterra and not as imbalanced as Varuna. Makes you think, but it still shoots well.

    Thank you all for the game. It was nice to see a lot of new faces in the tournament.

    Thanks to the organizers for the event.

    Congrats, that’s a fantastic showing! I love to read reports from countries other than the US - it’s so interesting seeing the differences in metas between what I’m used to and what everyone else plays.

    Thank you.
    Yes, order spam in our meta prevails. And isn't surprising that better to have 15+, than 10 because you need to discover ariadna/fight with hordes of muttawiah and every mistake will cost you more.
    Also there are a lot of KHD. Almost in every list. So it's more dangerous to use simple HD on regular(or fusilier) especially with running away repeaters such as bulleteer and peacemaker.
    And that's why neoterrain locust-specialist is really useless, for example.

    Great showing and nice battle reports! Your lists are really strong, one thing I would try to squeeze in the first list is a hacking device in order to buff a bulleter.

    For our central/eastern Europe meta those are standard lists. Every time I or my friends see LI list winning big tournaments in US/Oceania/UK we are really surprised.

    Try HD+lgl instead of akalis. He is ok, but really not necessary.

    And forgot to mention EVO. It is possible to take him and use synergy with 3 fugazis and bulleteer/peacemaker, but requires 1 more command token if you go second.
    I personally don't like it, but maybe sometime will try again.(or in neoterra - my next goal is to finish next major tournament with it)

    I was using EVO in Acon in similar heavy drones setup and it was really good. EVO is also cheaper SWC wise in Acon, additional burst on drones, combined with 2 snipers and 3 minelayers secures sturdily your first turn.
    Anyways those are just some details, great results from nice meta lists.

    10 order lists winning big events in the US is not very common. The only recent example I can think of is Adepticon.

    At what level is it order spam? 10 orders feels really restrictive, 11-13 is OK, and 14-16 is when I start to feel less pressure to be 'perfect'. Is it 17+ orders is order spam?

    Now I have read all the post and coments, so I can talk...

    As Acontecimento player (yes, this year I'am playing more with SSS, but you know... I bring Acontecimento always in my heart XD) I'am always happy of hearing about success in tournament with this faction. I'am convinced is one of the most fun to play and still competitive.

    Your position, and only one match lost is a really good prove of this.

    I found your list really really full of orthers, to me the max is one group with 10/9 and another with 5/6, but as usual I play with one group with 10 and another with 3. Maybe I should try something with too many orders like your first list.

    I really enjoyed to see how the "local meta" changes how the lists take form and works. Where I play isn`t normal find lits so full of orders, Ariadna apart.

    After a good thinking about your list I really didn't nothing "to add", they looks like they work really really well.

    Maybe we don't match in the list setups, but we agree about the Nagas. They are super in Acontecimento.

    I miss a Guarda de Asalto, you don't like it? To me is one of the reasons to play Acontecimento. Why not?
    In the Tournament, which game was the hardest? And usually which faction causes you more troubles when you face it? I'am curious about this.




    Thanks again for the good report. With pictures and the place of every troops.

    Best regards!

    Sorry for the Gramma mistakes :/

    Eh, it's just a term. I think it used to have a negative connotation, back in 2nd when 2 Combat Groups was much less common.

    Virtually all my lists have at least 15 Orders though, so I don't really take much notice.

    Also, not a GdA fan either. ~50 points for a MULTI Rifle or Spitfire is a lot. Acon has a lot of pretty decent close-range troopers, so I don't really see much need for a Heavy Infantry that (in my experience) isn't great at guaranteeing a win in a gunfight.

    Overall, I love the lists above. They look very similar to lists I run.

    I'd say, that 11-13 is really NOT ok, because if you take first turn opponent just removes your 2 orders from bigger group and you can do almost nothing because you have about 10 orders, but separated in 2 groups. We just make 10 or 15+ lists. And "order spam" is not just a specific definition for 15+, but more like style of playing and building your army. You can do more with couple of "not so expensive" attackers and you don't really regret losing them because you have more.

    Thank you very much.

    I used him before update, took 1st place at my first Dacha before army update and just wanted to try something new. Dart is really great and more flexible(not the same role in army, but similar) ((And "Smoke is a sin!"))
    I really miss old monteza with spitfire(and even lgl - that was fun way to spend whole turn missing every speculative). The new one have awful specialist profile and just ok multirifle option(but it is not spec.) and will take it only for specific missions such as Grid or Armory.

    Definitely 4th game. I can see easy fixes in 1st, but only one(maybe two) mistakes just almost ruined my 4th game

    With this sectorial easiest is JSA. But hardest...maybe another pano or imperial service? I can't really say about factions, but about players who plays this factions in our community.

    I think that's a good point... Dart makes the GdA less useful.

    Camo, Infiltrate, super mobility, good BS, multiple weapons, multiple ammunition types, lots of modifiers, basically 2 Wounds but not Hackable... And still cheaper than the GdA. She's a very good tool for Acon, and I think she's better in Acon than she is in any other army/Sectorial that can use her.

    I fond that ~15 seems to be the sweet spot for me. 12/13 feels like the second combat group is gimped and usually anything over 15/16 feels like I'm not taking enough quality units

    Fun fact: every time I took Guarda, he died due to crit from noctifer. But it plays really well. I think I like HIs/TAGs in almost every list because I started playing infinity with NCA(which had before update only 2 lists with couple of modifications). Really I thought hard about playing him with Dart, but refused it in favor of more orders and bulleteer.

    But I think that I made right decision.

    Tried Varuna with 20 because I can and it played very well, lol. Such imbalanced, I love it.(1st paradiso campaign mission)
    But seriously, I prefer ~18 order lists in NCA|VIRD|SAoA or ~16 with TAGs and pano sectorials(not MO) play very well at such quantities.

    I'm enjoying VIRD at almost 2 full combat groups. There are so many good options at the the 30 and below point cost.
