In the mist of Galactic Civil War, it is the very fates of heroes, villains and scoundrels which will determine the course of history – the Light versus the Dark, and everything in between…

Piggy-backing off Fantasy Flight Game’s standard rules for X-Wing dogfighting tournaments, Outpost 6030 will host an event that provides an interesting list building challenge, with a requirement for participants to bring two dissimilar* 75 point lists each.

General Details

– The event is to be held at the South Perth Community Hall, Como, corner of South Tce and Sandgate St.

Note: Some of these elements may run a bit faster/slower, but I’ve scheduled so the time is available.

Rules
Each participant’s dissimilar* lists will be denoted red and green. Your opponent each round will determine which of your lists you will fly based on their selection of a red or green manoeuvre on a movement dial after reviewing both – as you will select theirs in the same manner. Let the mind-games begin…

*To define Dissimilar – utilisation of different factions would generally be expected to provide dissimilar lists, but this should not stop Single-faction players from entering (nor does use of different factions guarantee automatic dissimilar status). Flying different classes of ships will go a long way to differentiating the lists. On list validation, if I feel you are running lists which are too similar, I’ll ask you to resubmit with some guidance. TO decision on this is final. Really this is meant to be a catch-all to avoid situations where two submitted lists by a participant are essentially identical. Just ask yourself if you’d be happy to be provided with your two options if you were the opponent, and you shouldn’t really go wrong. If you have any questions along the way to list submission, I’m happy to guide (questions early will pay dividends later…).

The current online FFG content will support this event bar the noted exceptions presented within this post; the newest revision of support material (Core Rules, Tournament Regulations and FAQ) available for over a week before list submission will be used. ie Support Information current as of Wednesday 2nd of November will be used for this event. If there is any question in the lead up, Outpost will clarify.

FAQ version 4.2.3 will be used on the day.

Note on Byes – there will be none. A ringer will be available if we have an odd number of participants. The ringer will play as a normal player. Further, if someone is late to the tournament, they will receive scores of 0 (Tournament Points and MOV) for the rounds missed.

All ships appropriate for use in standard Dogfighting Tournaments (ie non-epic ships) available in WA retail stores prior to list submission are valid for use in the tournament. No proxy cards or proxy ship tiles are allowed.

List Submission
List submission of both lists will be by midnight Wednesday 9th of November; after this I must start issuing contracts to the Bounty Hunters to find missing lists.

List submission is to:

  1. Hi Folks,

    X-wing: Storm of Fates is less than 6 weeks away now, and we still have Early Bird positions available for entry into an exclusive raffle draw of an X-wing expansion pack.

    We need participants to start confirming their attendance and begin to pay for spots (early bird spots are on first participants paid) – this helps Outpost 6030 also organise appropriate prize support (ie, Trophies need 4 weeks lead time).

    Should be a fantastic alternative X-wing event amongst the larger tournament vibe of an Outpost 6030 Skulls Weekend.
