South East Star Wars X-Wing Regional

What is the event and who is it for

Regional Championships follow Store Championships in the Organised Play calendar and are the next level in competition, prizes, and prestige. These exclusive events offer players a chance to test their skills against the best players in their region and compete for

awesome prizes, including a precious first-round bye at a National Championship.

This is for any Star Wars X-Wing players that want to experience a weekend of fun events as well as the ultimate test of generalship to see who becomes the Regional Champion.

Day 1 will consist of 6 rounds of Swiss and day 2 will see the Top 16 Battle it out for the title. The Top 16 Cut will be Single Elimination games.

If you don’t make the cut on day 2 there will be lots of side events to enter that will lead to more prizes and even more fun. Day 2 is completely optional, but it is free to attend and take part in.

Premier Tournaments at this tier expect players to have a moderate amount of experience. Players should
be familiar with not only the game rules, but also the event regulations. The focus is on a competitive and fair environment.

Where is the Event?

The event takes place at the Wayland Games Centre and will be run in the gaming hall. Players report to the store upon arrival for registration.
