Is the final round to be played exclusively with the new ships, like Kessel Run, or do the top two players just use a list including two new ships? It occurred to me that one might be able to come up with a 100-pt list using only two ships, but it might be tough, especially for the Rebel player.

One player will construct an Imperial squad that fields both the TIE defender and TIE phantom. The other will construct a Rebel squad that utilizes the Z-95 Headhunter as well as the E-wing. Both players will complete their 100-point squadrons by adding starships and upgrades from their existing X-Wing collections.

What if two Rebel players make the final? Or two Imperial players? What if the Wave 3 Rebel player wants to play Wave 4 Imps the same way that the Imp player does?

I would think just like Kessel Run that top seed gets to choose which they want to play as. In the Kessel run I chose to run Imperials after going 3-0 in the early rounds, my opponent was 2-1.

The winner of the tourney gets to pick which side first, 2nd place gets the remainder side. So it won't matter if both sides want to play Rebel, only one can.

So bring ships to construct either Rebel or Imp, since you don't know what side you'll be on in the final round (assuming you even make it to that round).

When I go I will likely already have two squads picked out. I will likely already have my whole collection anyways but I will know what I'm flying when I get there.

Do you get access to Wave 4 upgrades? The wording implies no ("upgrades from their existing X-Wing collections"), but it would be nice if it were explicitly declared.

I can imagine some places will allow slapping Predator on a Defender, but having only one opened blister, hearing complaints that the Rebel player can't equip it on his E-Wing.

I expect the Rebel player will get the upgrades from the Z-95 and the E-Wing while the Imperial player will get the upgrades from both new TIEs.
