    You can, since I'm asking for arguments in another match, but I won't change my vote.

    Very similar to the Asyr-Face match a few pages ago

    Asyr

    Joined rogue Squadron following the Liberation of Coruscant in their campaign against Isard (a small group of fighters and cruisers against Isard's fleet). She stayed with the Rogues till her "death" during the Ciutric Campaign; a timespan of about 3 years, which inlcuded the Rogue's extended campaigns against Zsinj and Thrawn. Now that's not a lengthy amount of experience, but the Bacta War, Zsinj Campaign, and Thrawn Campaign are all high-quality stuff. Asyr is also considered one of the better Rogues during this time as she performs at a high level, scoring many kills, rarely downed, etc.

    Myn

    He has more experience than Face, flying with Talon, the Wraiths, and the Rogues, though it's a little spotty. The ambush of Talon was his first mission after graduating flight school (iirc, not completely sure on that), then the stint with the wraiths, then promoted to Rogue Squadron after Zsinj. Unfortunately, we have very little on Myn post-Ciutric.

    In terms of experience, Asyr has the Bacta War, Zsinj Campaign, Thrawn, and part of Ciutric all with Rogue Squadron. Myn has Zsinj with the Wraiths, Thrawn and Ciutric with the Rogues, then a big question mark. We don't know anything about Myn post-Ciutric, save the fact that he stopped flying. I think that Asyr holds lsight edges in skill and experience, putting her over Myn

    It's unclear how long Donos had been flying with the Talons, but he clearly got top marks to be made a lieutenant (and brevet captain) right out of flight school. Aside from her early Rogue stuff, Donos flew in all the same missions -- but Asyr never made officer, whereas Donos did, and he was also invited to the Rogues. We don't know when he left the squadron, but their service lengths are effectively a wash -- except Donos was regarded higher.

    I don't really hold the Talon Squadron ambush against Donos especially given that he flew extremely well while massively outnumbered in his first battle. Given how he was very highly regarded in three squadrons, and that we don't have a timeframe for when he left the Rogues I'm going to go with Myn by a nose.

    I'll agree on the latter teams match

    For the record I probably would have gone with Asyr in the Asyr vs Myn match even though the potential experience for Myn is much greater, there's little known on when Donoslayne Excursions was founded and when Myn left and joined Kirney.

    i just don't think it's that cut and dried is all. looking down the list there are a lot of questionable matches, but whatever. no skin off my teeth.

    The way I see it is that Horsey's team has more cohesion and experience. Add that to the fact that her top 4 beats RX's top 4 (since Farrell beat Gallia in their head to head match) and it's pretty clear who the winner is.
