Come out and jump into X-Wing 2.0! This is a simple, fun, friendly tournament. We’ll play a couple games, get better at the new rules, and have a good time. Players new to the game overall or just to 2.0 are encouraged to come out! While this is a tournament, it’s all casual, and one benefit of tournament play is players end up facing those of similar ability as the standings sort out.
Squads for this event may be built up to threat level 8, as follows. At the start of the event each player simultaneously makes a bid from 1 to twice the number of players (e.g., bids a value from 1-10 if there are 5 players). Players then divide up by their chosen factions and each group conducts draft rounds. In descending order by bid, each player drafts (chooses) a unique pilot from the Quick Builds published by FFG, if they wish. Players may not choose a unique pilot already drafted by another player. Draft order between any players that bid the same amount is randomly determined and followed each round. Draft rounds repeat in that fashion until no players wish or are able (squads being capped at 8 threat) to induct any more unique pilots. Players then select generic pilot Quick Builds to fill out their squad up to threat level 8.
The Quick Builds published by FFG in the X-Wing 2.0 Core Set, the faction PDFs on the X-Wing 2.0 website, and by any other mechanism are all eligible. Note that players may battle against players of all factions, including their own. The draft rounds are simply conducted in parallel groups to speed up the process.
