Oh man, don't tell me you're doing the pairings by hand... Challonge is easily set up ofr SWLCG (2 points for game win, 1 point for game tie, 1 point for match win, 0 rest) and it solves the issue. Match point would be awarded in the case of modified win, rest is self explanatory.

The only problem would be setting up the pairings as they were in the first round, but that should work with just placing people who played together after each other and setting the seeding rules to "order of the participants list". Or placing them across the list and setting it to "traditional seeding rules".

The only thing not complementary with SWLCG is their tiebreaker system - they are using Median-Bucholz system, which does not take into account the lowest and highest scoring opponents (aka the outliers) - these opponents are used in the official tournament rules.

If ya need any help setting it up, feel free to hit me on Skype (janek.gabriel), I've been using it since I've began organizing tournaments for SWLCG. Too bad FFG does not have any program for doing so, even the likes of ****** Wizards Event Reporter.

I've been seeing quite a few decks that include the possibility of not drawing an affiliation you might need. In this case, If you draw 2x Han and 2x Prep, you won't have any Jedi Affiliation. It's hard for me to build decks like this because of the big risk involved. Have you drawn any non-Jedi affiliations before? And if so, are you just plain screwed?

I have a couple of times only had 1 Jedi objective in my opening 4, but have yet to get 0. The probability is low enough that it doesn't worry me too much (once out of every 210 games I'll get stuck with no Jedi resources).

Exactly what dbmeboy said. You can be fine even with 6-4 split with the affiliation for the higher represented faction, since not drawing the objective will happen once in about 20 games. Higher risk involved for sure, but can be rewarding if you need a specific "faction only" objective.

A cookie for you if your light side doesn't include cavern or Luke, and two cookies if your dark side doesn't include emperor or killing cold!
