It is time for the next one!

 

With the Spring 2020 online tournament wrapped up, lets move on quickly to another one this summer!  After feedback from various groups the cardpool is going to be kept limited to just FFG cards.  It will again be a limited cardpool, but the environment will be different from what was available in the spring so we will see what new archetypes emerge!

 

 

Tournament

Like the last Online Tournaments, this one will have a Group Round and then an Elimination Round.  Players will be allocated to a Group to try to best accommodate player availability.  Players within the Group are responsible for coordinating their match times, playing and reporting the games, before the end of the Group Round.

 

Group Round will last 1 week per match-up players need.

Decks can be changed during the Group Round.  (It’s a new world)

 

Scoring: Like last time we did an online tournament, there is a tie-breaker system players will need to report on.  A win is considered 12 points.  DS gets points based off the Death Star Dial when they lose.  Ex: losing with the dial at 10 results in 12 points for the LS player, 10 points fo the DS player.  LS tie breaking points are based off objective progress.  4 points for each objective in the LS victory pile + 1 point for every 2 points of objective damage on the board, rounded down, the a maximum of +3.  Ex 1: LS loses with 2 objectives destroyed and 3 damage on the board.  LS gets 9 points.  Ex2: LS loses with 1 objective destroyed and 2 objectives at 4 damage on the board and another at 3.  LS gets 7 points.  Yes, this does incentivize certain decks, we’ll just have to make our peace with that.

 

At the end of the Group Round the top players in each Group will advance to the Elimination Round.  If there is a tie game point will be examined.  The exact number of players advancing will be determined once sign-up is complete, but, like the World Cup, expect it to be roughly half of the group.  

 

 

Elimination Round

Entering the the Elimination Rounds qualifying players will need to lock in their deck lists!  Once all lists are provided they will be posted on Cardgamedb for all to see.  This will let players plan their strategy and also let the rest of us watching place our bets!

 

Elimination Round will be single elimination best of 5.

 

In the early round(s) the higher seeded player from their group will have the choice of what deck to play first.  In all later rounds it will be decided by coin flip.  Players will alternate playing LS/DS. If a 5th game is needed the player who has more game points accumulated during the first 4 games of that one-on-one match up may decide which deck to play in the 5th game.  So keep track of the dial and objective damage in these games too!

 

Hopefully we’ll continue to have really exciting games, and online streaming in the cut!

And the prize for all this: Community!  Fame -the fortune.  Fame minus the fortune… and a say in the next limited cardpool!

 

 

Next Steps

 

If you are interested please respond below by Sunday June 28 and include the times that would be best for you to play and your time zone.  Also include what SWLCG card you would like ot use as your avatar in the live drawing of groups.  For example, I will represented once again by the one and only "Kyle Katarn".  You know which one.  If you have questions please let me know!

 

If you would like to play, but cannot post here because a moderator hasn't approved posts yet, you can still PM me on cardgamedb here.  Or you can reach out to us on the FB group.

I'm in! But I'll likely be on vacation in July, so I'll need to hammer out all my games quickly in early August.

 

I'll take Lando again!

I'm on UTC +3 time. I should be available pretty much any workday night (which would be late afternoon for the US/Canada players). On weekends I could be available pretty much all day long.

Of course I'm in again.  These are always a blast.  It's easiest for me to play any time after 1 PM EDT, but I can make other times work at least until mid-August.  Of course I need to be a Yoda.  I'll take the one from IYMG. 

 

Thanks for organizing again, Mick.

I’m contemplating coming out of retirement... just not sure yet. My rusty innards might not be up to the task

A number of people are “coming out of retirement” for this one. You wouldn’t be alone.
