Star Trek: Attack Wing Nationals Championship Qualifier Tournament

The WizKids Open Star Trek: Attack Wing Nationals Championship Qualifier Event will be a Constructed Tournament consisting of 3 rounds of Swiss-style pairings followed by multiple single-elimination rounds. After the initial 3 rounds of Swiss pairings, the pool of players will be cut to the Top 16 players. Players with at least 1 win who were eliminated after the cut will be awarded prizes according to their record. The players who advance to the Top 16 will continue to play through 4 single-elimination rounds— these players will receive tiered prizes for each single-elimination round that they advance until a ultimate event winner is crowned. In addition to prizes received, the winner of the event will be granted a seat at the 2015 Star Trek: Attack Wing National Championship (registration to convention, travel & accommodations not included).

Cost for this event: $15.00 (includes Tournament Booster Pack for Sealed Play)
See individual WKO Store pages for scheduled time of event
Prize Structure: TBA (check back soon for complete listing!)


*Premiere Event details may vary per WKO location as space and other restrictions necessitate—changes to the event format will be noted on the individual host store’s WKO page.

There's one within driving distance of me, so I guess I'll be attending.

None of them are near me, but I see some (more) air travel in my future.

Looks like 2 more Borg releases between now and then?

I wonder which faction will be over-represented at the event...if only there was a way to tell...

By then, I suspect a lot of it will be Borg vs. Federation. We should have the Enterprise-E on shelves at that time, plus whatever the NX-01 brings to the table upgrade-wise.

I was just one the website for the closest store to me and they only had 32 tickets listed as available for purchase. I'm hoping that it is just their pre-order number.

The place we are having X-Wing Regionals this weekend here in Atlanta will hold at least 150-200 games...but I don't believe they play Attack Wing there. Although it would have been very nice for the SE regionals to be here in Atlanta...easy to get in and out of if folks are flying. Wilmington, not so much.

True...although outside of Gen Con, we've had complaints from players of other games I play about attending Regionals/Nationals/Worlds at conventions. They don't like having to pay for badges and increased hotel prices.

Does anyone actually know where these are.

I'm having trouble using the event system to find them, the bast I know is that it doesn't have any within a hundred miles of me. (Which probably decides that for me.)

Just wondering what they though were the best locations overall.

Clcking on each individual button for the stores can give you details. Half of the attack wing tournaments are slated for 64 players, the others are slated for 32. there's a total of 452 seats nationwide, and I already know some people are looking into attening multiple. That is not alot of capacity...

If you cut out Chicago, that could be one helluva road trip. I don't get how Tradesmart got it in Littleton, to my knowledge they've never even done an attack wing event. I can think of 4 or 5 game stores that would be better suited for it around here. Weird.

Probably... I was really going for Attack Wing and this is better. I could get to 2 regionals for the price of 1 gencon and still probably get a couple ds9 packs
