According to FFG's website:
Quote:
X-Wing™ National Championship Prizes

Champion: The winner receives a North American Championship trophy and a first-round bye at the 2014 Star Wars: The Card Game World Championship.

Top Two: The top two players each receive one backpack with Star Wars: The Card Game art.

Top Eight: The top eight players each receive one North American Championship playmat.

Top Sixty-Four: The top sixty-four players each receive one set of acrylic target lock tokens.

All Participants: Each player receives one alternate art Chewbacca pilot card.

Completion Prize: Each player who plays all rounds of the tournament will receive a second copy of the alternate art Chewbacca pilot card.

Note: All participation and completion prizes will be awarded to players during the Thursday and Friday flights. All other prizes will be awarded to players that make the final rounds on Saturday.


Sounds good to me. One question: why do you think they are giving away completion prizes?

Just realized they have an error in the listing. I'm hoping they mean that the winner gets a bye to the X-Wing World Tournament and not the Star Wars Card game tournament.

One of the big problems with the Swiss style scoring is when people drop early. By giving out a completion card they motivate people to play all the rounds. They do that at tournaments in MN all the time. Even worlds 2013 had two Boba Fett cards for every player that completed the seeding rounds.

Except it still says "playmat" where I think they mean "acrylic maneuver and range templates" based on what's pictured.
