Schedule:

9:00am - 9:50am - Check In and Registration
10:00am - 11:15am - Round One
11:30am - 12:45pm - Round Two
12:45pm - 1:45pm - LUNCH BREAK
1:45pm - 3:00pm - Round Three
3:15pm - 4:30pm - Round Four
4:45pm - 6:00pm - Round Five
6:15pm - 7:30pm - Round Six (if attendance exceeds 64 players)
There will be a small break after the final round of swiss before we start the single elimination rounds (top 8).
8:00pm - 9:15pm - Top 8 Round 1
9:30pm - 10:45pm - Top 8 Round 2
11:00pm - 12:15am - Finals

We feel that this is a very conservative estimate and we anticipate being able to move the day along at a considerably faster pace.  We find that the typical game of X-Wing does not last 75 minutes and the time in between rounds should be far shorter than 15 minutes.  We are going to make every effort to move the day along as fast as possible.

The tournaments will follow the standard Fantasy Flight tournament rules. 
Each round will last 75 minutes.
The number of rounds will be based on turnout.
There will be a cut to a top 8 after the final round of swiss pairings


Squad Submission:

We will require people to submit squadron lists to Chase@BattlegroundGames.com by Wednesday, June 3rd.  We will varrify each list before the tournament begins in an effort to avoid any problems during the event. They will be kept confidential.


Prizes will come out of the Fantasy Flight Games Regional Championship Kit:

• 1 card granting the winner a first-bye at your country’s National Championship - Awarded to the champion
• 1 Regional Champion trophy - Awarded to the champion
• 4 sets of acrylic maneuver templates - Awarded to the top 4 finishers
• 8 sets of dice - Awarded to the top 8 finishers
• 16 sets of shield tokens - Awarded to the top 16 finishers
• 64 Boba Fett alternate art cards - Awarded to the first 64 players to register for the event.
Also, Battleground will award a custom battle mat to the top 8 finishers upon conclusion of the swiss rounds.  We think you'll be happy with them.
Additional prizes may be awarded based on turnout.

Hi Ron,

We had some technical issues uploading results to the XWjuggler site, but that has been resolved as of late last night. I will have lists attached to that as soon as possible, and I can break down data from there once it is completed.

Some raw stuff -

We had 72 total players.

We streamed the entire day's events over twitch and had over 600 views. You can watch the streamed matches in "My Past Broadcasts" on my channel :

As soon as I have a better compilation of information, I will have it out to you guys, I promise!!



Be the positive change you want to see.
