X-Wing League Nights Season 2 at Madness - Plano, TX

84 posts in this topic

Hey all!

I want to announce that Madness Games and Comics in Plano, TX will be hosting League play for X-Wing from 5pm to Midnight every Friday starting January 10th and going for 6 weeks. It is anticipated that the store will continue doing further leagues on the same day AS WELL AS hosting Store Championships and likely a Regional (pending FFG approval).

Check out Madness Games and Comics at their website or on Facebook!

League Structure: Show up on Friday from 5pm-midnight and find an opponent to play! No entry cost/signup required. Each match you play following standard FFG tournament rules counts towards the league and prize giveaways. We will have score sheets for recording wins/losses for each match that you can turn into the organizers each week. The league will run for 6 weeks and prizes will be given away for various achievements. I will update this thread with current standings/breakdown each week (usually on Monday).

Prizes: We will be giving away prizes from the Season 2 and Season 3 FFG Kits. Prizes for the league will be given throughout the 6 weeks with the 'biggest' ones the final week. Obviously the more you participate, the more special stuff you will be rewarded.

Questions? Post here or send me a PM and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Hope to see you all!

What if you cannot make every Friday? Or more accurately, what if you can only make, say 2 or 3, of the Fridays? Outside of the obvious answer that you get to play X-Wing, is it feasible or worthwhile, to show up and participate? Do you have to log so many plays to be considered part of the league, or would I be considered part even if I could only go to one Friday of the 6?

 

Thanks in advance for answering!

Gazer: I am not opposed to that provided you play people in the league when you do so. We can work something out. Id rather include people as long as its not abused.

Rym: It is worthwhile. Obviously, the more you come the better, but no one will leave empty-handed. The intent is to have fun and play and be rewarded (outside the obvious rewards of enjoying the game) with some nice swag. I expect that most people will miss a week here/there possibly myself included. This is fun, not a job. =)

Thanks for the response Hida! I'll try and make it sometime.

 

Next question: Will there be gaming going on this upcoming Friday (12/27)? This close to holidays and all, just wondering before I make the long drive out there :-)

I plan to be there, but I know most of the players are tentative at best.

Just an FYI, in case you weren't aware that I pushed the start date for the league back 1 week.  Madness will be hosting a George Takei signing on Friday Jan 3rd, and asked that we not schedule for that day.

As with last season, I'm very interested in playing, but my Friday evenings are booked.  I could make anytime Saturday or Sunday if there was a way to accommodate that into the league.  If not, then, "oh well".

Ill be at the store on Sundays, but Ill likely be playing in another league.  If you want to play on Sundays I will be at the store and you wont miss out since I dont post the scores until Mondays usually anyway.  Talk to me this Sunday if that works, Ill be at the store all day. That way you can get me your sheet prior to leaving and we'll be square. I want you to be included, I know you play mainly at Madness.  

 

Unfortunately, I can't necessarily help you with finding opponents.  Know you play a lot with Sable and I know Tony will likely also be at the store Sundays playing Star Wars, am sure he could find you some games here/there as well. Other than that, you would need to find/ask people here if they are available.

Sorry, I wasn't keeping up with this during the holidays and the forums slipped my mind until I remembered that the league would be starting up. I meant an account here for posting purposes. I wasn't aware we would need any kind of account at Madness.

To be clear, you do not need any account at Madness to play in the league, just show up during the times specified.

Oh and by the way, I don't think I will be able to make it as consistently to the league as I have been before. Will be having a lot of stuff going on with my job. I will make it out as often as I can though!

Sure. You're just trying to escape the wrath of the snowy nova cervines. ;)

We had a great turnout yesterday. 9 people showed up.

 

I had great success with a new list I was trying out:

 

Omicron Group Pilot (21)
Fire-Control System (2)
Gunner (5)
Engine Upgrade (4)

Obsidian Squadron Pilot (13)

Obsidian Squadron Pilot (13)

Boba Fett (39)
Navigator (3)

Total: 100

 

I'm thinking of tinkering with the Firespray though.
