RO Weekly League Season Three – Week One Round-Up

Twenty players kicked off the third(!) season of the Rogue Outpost League last week. In these round-ups, I’ll be giving a very quick breakdown of the factions used and pointing out any interesting lists (to me at least).

The theme of week one was ‘Your squad cannot contain small base ships and can only contain one large base ship’. Cue lots of banter around double Firespray lists. Let’s check out the faction split.

Of no surprise is that there are no Resistance lists this week. That’s because the faction does not have any medium base ships! Rebel, with their abundance of medium base ships, easily came out top. U-Wings, ARCs, and K-Wings all being good choices gave them lots of…choice. A few examples of Dash too which is nice to see.

We also saw a lot of Republic ARCs with some LAAT support and Scum IGs mixing it up with the obvious Firesprays.

Let’s check out the list of the week!

Huge props to David for busting out a 5 x Xi list. The sheer ballsiness to fly it should be applauded. I know the game didn’t go the way he wanted but he built a list that’s very much in the spirit of why I run the leagues as I do; to go off-piste and try different things.

Below are the top ten following the conclusion of week one.

Another strong start by my local Bandits with four in the top ten. Note that all four Republic lists are here which shows how strong the ARC/LAAT combo was this week.


Until next week, pilots! If you’d like to get involved with choosing the articles I write here and support Rogue Outpost you can find my Patreon here. You can check out all the lists for week one on MetaWing here.
