Today is the big day!
For the first time ever, Fantasy Flight Games is hosting the World Champioship of Star Wars LCG at their Minnesota Event Center. The first day of play begins at 3pm this afternoon, player attendance is expected to be around 100 or so. The event should be 5 rounds today (70mins each, 1hr dinner break after round 3) and will probably wrap for the night around midnight.
Flip the Force will be attending the event and will be presenting live updates throughout the day today.
Keep checking back here for more info. This article will serve as a ‘placeholder’ for the live blog, so just refresh this page to check for updates.
Thanks, and may the Force be with all players attending today!!
Due to a super late start, the World Championship is just now getting underway.
No free Balance of the Force given out to anyone.
Over 130 players, will be 6 rounds and cut to top 32 (the haven’t announced official cut yet).
The first round started at 4:05pm CST
After talking with FFG, clarification on the above — CLARIFICATION — Total of 111 players, six total rounds, cut to top 16. The rounds have been adjusted down from 70mins to 60mins to give players an additional round.
Rogue Speeder 5 swept round 1.
Many players with BYES have been hanging out, socializing during the first round. Hard to tell how many regional winners are here. Over 20, maybe over 30 would be a close guess.
Round 2 just finished (6:43pm)
Gonna be a long night. Not many timed games, which seems good.
Flip the Force 16pts
Round 3 is over, we’re now on dinner break.
Flip the Force 20pts
Flip the Force 24pts
Round 4 just ended. Lots of people still here, looks like very few drops. We’re pretty sure that 33pts is a guaranteed top 16, so several of the players listed above are in great shape!
Only two more rounds, going to be a really late night.
Longn day, another long round. Top player looks to be Matt Kohls on 37 points after sweeping TinyGimes round 5. 33pts still looks solid for making Top 16.
Flip the Force 32
Final round will start around 11:45pm CST.
Finally hope. Last round finished around 1245am or so. Headed out around 130am, just got home.
FliptheForce – 36pts, Top 16
MasterJediAdam – 27pts, Top 40
TinyGrimes – 35pts
Good luck to everyone who top 16’d!!!
