Round 1 showed how diverse and well rounded the competition is. There were some upsets, there were was a match where victory was stolen on the last roll. I can’t wait to see how this next round plays out. In the registration I posted that these games would be ranked. Well the ranking has begun. Sense this is the first ranked online X-Wing event, we all start out the same, so there isn’t much difference between players right now, but as the tournament goes on things will shift more. To view the rankings you can go here. When you go to the page select X-Wing, then online, then 100pts, and see where you stand. For some of us who have been on the TC site for a while you can earn Badges for different things. If you look at my profile you will see that I have a few badges. The winner of the X-Wing vassal tournament will get this badge next to there name
From now on X-Wing Tournament winners will gain this badge icon. One more thing to look forward too. I thought I would post The factions and players plus their lists again.
Now many people have red Kevin’s blog on Measuring. It seems FFG is looking to take a much harder stand on measuring then many would have guessed. I’m not going to implement these new rules for this tournament. I will continue to answer rules questions, and make calls based on my best judgement, but I will not be following these new rulings. These new rules will fundamentally change how many people play, and when you add that to learning Vassal, I find that to be too much. I also don’t like making big rules changes in the middle of an event.
Good luck to all of you and may the Force be with you!
