I noticed that 40K was not on their as a championship game. Is there a possibility that this game wont be out by then? FFG said Q3.

Color me worried.

Yeah, I was also a little unsure with this lack of an announcement. Maybe they aren't sure and will add it later if/when it releases on time? It seems like it would be very surprising for it to not be out by then...

Perhaps the announcement was created prior to the announcement of Conquest and they didnt update the information to account for the game? Didn't Netrunner come out at Gen Con 2012 and they did a world championship for it that year?

A local store called their FFG rep and they said that Conquest will not get a world championship but will have a seperate tournament and event for it.

I'm surprised they won't be. Figured it would be the same as ANR back when it released.

That's interesting, Buzzsaw, good on you for putting in the leg work with your shop. I guess they want to showcase it at GenCon and then let some packs come out before putting it on the big list?

It will probably drop @ gencon - if you look at the ticket price it went from 25-40 you might be buying a conquest core set with your worlds ticket.

Netrunner launched at Gencon, but Star Wars launched closer to Christmas time. So, at Worlds everyone already HAD their Netrunner Cores, but not Star Wars.

If they're giving away 40K Cores at Worlds, that seems like it would imply that 40K will not be for sale at Gencon, it would only be for demos.

I doubt 40K will be given away at Worlds. Too far away. SW made sense because of its release and longer than average development due to the redesign.

If Conquest is out by Gencon it doesn't really make sense for FFG to not have a world championship for it.

I agree. Hopefully they will at least have a tournament.

BuzzsawMF did say further up that his local stores FFG rep said it would have events just not a worlds champ at Worlds weekend.

Hopefully it doesnt conflict with X Wing or Star Wars.

I'd count on it conflicting. It never fails.
