Hello SWLCG Community!
Following the success of season 1, we are happy to announce season 2 of the SWLCG open play league!
Start Date: Right Now!
End Date: Wednesday, July 31, 2019
Games can be reported using the Google form here:
Base scoring will remain the same as season one
Game win = 3 points
Game loss = 1 point
Bonus points this season:
1 point - Play a game against the defending champion (Ethan Anderson)
1 point - Win a game against the defending champion (so a total of 2 bonus points for beating Ethan)
1 point - Super Restricted List - Have no cards in your deck on any restricted list.
1 point - Game played at an in-person tournament (minimum 4 players, 3 rounds)
The player with the most points at the end of July will be the season 2 champion.
The Legends cycle will continue to be legal for this season while we review all of the feedback you guys provided over the last 3 months and decide what changes, if any, are needed.
Some additional plans for league play:
At the end of the league year (ie 4 seasons), we will hold a SWLCG invitational championship. The top 2 players from each league season will qualify (passing down if that player has already qualified). Currently qualified players: Ethan Anderson and Colter Cookson. Those 8 players will be seeded based on their total points across the leagues and play in a double elimination tournament to produce a final champion.
Have fun everyone and good luck!
*UPDATE* - The Frozen in Carbonite sets can be used if both players agree to use them. We will be running a full open beta for the cards in season 3.
