Who's going to what tourney?  I'm thinking I might stop by the Flat Land Games tourney.  Though I think I would prefer to make the Eternal Games one, but I doubt I'll be able to make noon.

I'll be at eternal. It's a little close to my inlaws. I looked at the Facebook page for the eternal and it said 10 people are going.
Imperials: 2 ties, tie advanced, fire spray, interceptors, aces, phantom, defender, decimator
Rebels: x-wing, y-wing, a-wing, yt1300, hwk, b-wing, z-95, e-wing, aces

Eternal was great too. I think we had 13. Maybe next time I'm in the area I can head out to flatland.

Don't forget 100pt tourney at Fun4all tomorrow! Prize is Winter kit. Looks like no cost to buy in, but if you need a new ship might as well use that $5-$10 you saved for some goodies.

Just an FYI, I'll be meeting some people at Eternal Games on Wed. at about 6:30 PM to help them learn the game.

 

If anybody wants to swing by for a few games feel free.

Hey guys, so I was just talking to some of my X wing buddies from the PA area, and they mentioned how they had a blast running their team event the other day.  (Link: http://teamcovenant....er-cup-results/) And that got me thinking - we should totally do something similar.  It seems like a good way to make epic play relevant in a tourney, without making it a full 12 hour day.  

 

For those that don't want to read the article, it basically goes like this:

 

Each team consists of the same number of players.  There are 2 regular rounds and 1 epic round in the tourney, and each player has a different list for all three rounds.  Each team is randomly assigned a draft position.  When your team picks from the draft, you select a list from your team to play against a list from another team (note, since a team cannot play themselves, there will be some restrictions as the draft continues to make sure everyone plays someone from a different team).  After all match ups are determined, the players reveal who controls what list, and they play their opponent like normal.  However, instead of getting 5 points for a personal victory, your team is awarded the points.  As such, it can be more beneficial to play two good match ups, and give your 3rd team member a match up that's highly unfavored, knowing that he's likely to lose that one (but you'll win the other two).  At the end of the round, a new draft process is started to choose what list plays what list.  And then the day concludes with the epic game, with the same draft rules.  Note that the draft would be constructed such that everyone has an overall fair experience.  For example, if there are three teams, each team would draft at all 3 places.  If there were 9 teams, a team might draft 1 5 9 and another 2 4 7 or something, such that it is as even as possible.

 

As for teams, we could break them up by region - East/West/North/South, or by Store, but personally, I would think it might be best if it was done by friends.  Anyone else think this is a cool idea?

Thanks for bringing up the idea, Khyros. That sounds like fun to me. I am actually so interested that my brain is jumping to "how do we accomplish this". I think next steps could be, pick two possible days, see who could be available, probably make a new "SE MI *insert name of event*" thread to follow the event, then we can find some way to decide teams (random, draft, pick your team, location), and of course, find the best location to host the event.

I'd probably join up if it could be scheduled.
