The common opinion on the forums is 'most matches are won/lost before the start'. So - I am posting a starting list here. No who can guess how will the match end?

PS. For those who played that exact match - don't spoil

Alright I'll play.

Empire has Urteon in Sting, Republic has Hachiman (who however is mostly veteran from pre 2.6 era, I haven't seen him much in the last months), the rest of names don't ring any bell. Republic only has 3 Gunships (yes, because they can't technically queue more than 3, but let's not derail the thread), so unless the Imperial 2-shippers will feed the gunships by beelining them (as they sadly often do, despite being told otherwise in chat), Urteon should be able to carry the team.

50:35 for Empire.

First glance : Balanced match.

Second glance : Your team has six strikes one scout and one bomber, the opposing team has 3 sheeps and a healthy mix of scouts and strikes : Opposing teams score the first kill and will take a lead in the beginning before your few valuable pilots switches to scouts to counter them.

Third glance : Your teams scouts are weak.

Final... The ooposing team is more likely to win but the match is clearly open, I can't tell more without knowing the individual pilots.

The opposing team has Boreajuku on not-so-upgraded ships, the Empire has Urteon, so it depends on the rest of the team. I'd call it a tight win for the Republic.

This.

Based on the initial ship picks, your team seems to pose only a weak direct threat to the enemy gunships due to a lack of scouts beyond yourself or gunships of your own, while the ammount of strikes makes it seem your team might be easier to farm. However, without knowing the players I can't be certain that this will hold true.

I think most players would see this start screen and expect it to be a farming race with so many two-shippers, though your posts hint of something less usual. Perhaps it ended in double defeat (i.e. draw)?

The result was 46:39 for Reps. Gunship ball and a little too eager team on Imp side were deciding factors..
Anyway, pretty close answers

First glance : Their team have the advantage.
Second Glance : Your team has a TensorPoint.
Third glance : They didn,t field too much bombers.

Your team get the lead with a smart Tensor Field. They counter with either bombers or gunships. Probably a match with a lot of sat switching. I say they won by less than 100 points.
