Sunday August 3rd at Pastimes 8502 W Golf Rd Niles, IL 60714 (847) 470-9636

With Gen Con vastly approaching and the Escalation tournament being sold out at Gen Con I thought we could have our next major event be an Escalation dogfight tournament. That way those who can't make it to Gen Con or those who couldn't get in to the sold out event could play. Also anyone who is planning on playing at Gen Con this would be a great tune up for them as well. This will be a competitive level event and we will be following all the FFG tournament rules for an Escalation dogfight. Registration begins at 11:00 A.M. and the tournament will begin promptly at Noon, entrance fee will be $10.

Prizes

1st place X-Wing Miniatures Tantive IV expansion pack or $90 credit
2nd place Custom Rubber X-Wing playmat Map made by Gamermats or $40 credit
3rd place $20 Store credit
4th place $20 Store credit

We will also have the current FFG official League kit prizes. Any additional prizes will be based on participation.

Official X-Wing Escalation Tournament Rules

Escalation tournaments for the X-Wing miniatures game are identical to Dogfight tournaments with the following exceptions: Escalation tournaments are held in a series of four tournament rounds. The first round is 50 minutes, the second round is 70 minutes, the third round is 90 minutes, and the fourth round is 120 minutes. Each new tournament round, players field a larger pre-built squad (following the Escalation squad building rules below), and players will score tournament points after each round based on the result of their game. After four tournament rounds (depending on the field size and time constraints of the tournament) the field will cut to a final championship bracket the top point scorers (usually a top 4 or top 8) will then play off in single-elimination championship brackets to determine the tournament champion. Championship bracket rounds are played with each player’s 150 squad point squad.

Escalation Squad Building

Each player may choose to field either Rebel or Imperial squads, as tournament seeding ignores the player’s faction. Each of the squads fielded must be from the same faction. You may not have more than eight small ships of the same ship type (TIE fighter, A-Wing, etc.) in any squad. You may not have more than four large ships of the same ship type in any squad.

The maximum squad points for each player’s first squad is 60 points. A squad cannot exceed 60 points, though it may contain fewer than 60 points.

On subsequent rounds, the maximum squad points for each player’s squad increases to 90 for the second round, 120 for the third round, and 150 for the fourth. During each round, each squad must contain all ships and upgrade cards from the previous squad. Ships from the previous round must keep all equipped upgrade cards, and these cards may not be “transferred” to a different ship. However, new upgrade cards may be added to ships from the previous squad.

Each player must submit a list of all four of his squads, including all associated upgrade cards and total squad points, to the TO before the start of the tournament.

Each player must bring an X-Wing core set and any additional components he needs for all four of his squads. This includes (but is not limited to) dice, a range ruler, maneuver templates, asteroid tokens, and a complete Damage deck. A player cannot bring more than one copy of each asteroid token. The TO is not expected to supply any game components to players.
