So the tourney today was pretty fun once it finally started. Just some things I noticed from the first two categories:

The probe section was dominated by spinners that were extremely mobile and abused the spinning velocity to spam very high range, fast, but inaccurate shots. Well-rounded probe fighters couldn't get close enough to score any hits, and the spinning seemed to make them more durable than other similarly mobile ships.

The Interceptor section had quite a variety of ships, from proton swords to mine laners to drone spammers. While the two finalists were both drone spammers and the twitch chat seemed pretty convinced that the strategy of throw drones and run was overpowered, there were several other drone spammers that lost earlier on in the bracket. I think the difference was that the Bee faction specifically has very strong drones that the AI was prioritizing over the enemy ship itself. I'm fairly certain that both finalists were of the Bee faction, and their drones seemed to perform better than drone spammers of other factions.

Overall, very few wins by K.O.

During the stream, Arthur mentioned the idea of having ships start matches as just the core so that matches would start by both ships racing to reassemble before they would actually become battle ready. I'm not entirely sure whether this will improve or decrease viable ship variety, but it would certainly help some of the weaker factions I feel.

Overall, pretty solid competition with lots of entries.
