    Alright, first things- color me confused about how we go from Kasan over Myn, no questions asked to Myn > Kasan on just Jello's summary (and, just for references, voted over Aril and again). It's whatever though.

    The thing is though, Moor isn't just reputation. Ok, so we don't know more than she was given command of an elite squadron of TIE Interceptors by 1ABY (can you provide the source on the Captain after a year thing; I don't doubt you, just curious). After defecting though, she has extensive service with Rogue squadron during their campaign against Moff Seerdon and others (Rogue Squadron, FOC). At this point, she's considered by Luke to be one of the best pilots in the squadron. She's later seen flying during the Battle of Dac in 10 ABY.

    Seeing as this match has gone on for a bit, I'm going to agree with all of PG's judgements, including Donos over Moor. Moor has a decent rep based solely on what we're told from the Rogue Squadron game, while Donos has a record of excellency that stretches through multiple sources. Based on that consistency, I'm inclined to believe more solidly in Donos' ability.

    Jace's biggest strength is his natural piloting talent. He joined Rogue Squadron for its reformation, making it into the squadron out of some 1200 pilot applicants. He then quickly proving himself to be one of the best pilots in the squadron, and arguably the best aside from Wedge. He also flew with the Rogues during the Bacta War against Isard's superior forces. Jace's flying is always noted by his high level of skill, managing to keep up with the best pilots in the squadron at the time.

    While both pilots aren't given that much screen time, Jace's is consistent in portraying him as being an very talented pilot. Crespin definitely has an experience edge here, but I think Jace's skill manages to push him above him here.

    I'm gonna go with Crespin. I don't believe the skill difference is too much, while the experience advantage is absolutely huge.

    I agree with Adam on this one. Crespin's experience and the fact that he flew TIEs and A-Wings, which both have a high fatality rate, seems to point in his favor.

    Congrats Jello [face_peace] I guess third time isn't the charm:p

    Out of curiosity Typo, how would you evaluate Kell vs Crespin? Since you voted Bror over Kell earlier?

    And so we finish up the 17th SFD. Congratulations to GrandAdmiralJello for his first victory! Incidentally, in all three times I've commished, we've seen three first time winners who have participated in many drafts, New_York_Jedi, Trimaj and now Jello. (Also we've seen three straight championship appearances by DarkEagle, but unfortunately he came in second in all of them)

    Anyway I'll be stepping down from commishing. The Loyal Imperial will be taking over for the next one in a month or so.
