2019 World Championships

Published 11 January 2019 | X-Wing Second Edition 2019 World Championships Details on the 2019 World Championships for FFG's Organized Play Programs There are a number of changes to Fantasy Flight Games Organized Play headed your way in 2019, and these include some significant changes to the World Championship tournaments for our competitive games! First and foremost, our World Championship tournaments will be held at four different times throughout the year, rather than two. Our X-Wing™ and Star Wars™: Legion World Championship tournaments will be invite-only. And the World Championship tournaments for Star Wars™: Armada and Star Wars™: Imperial Assault will be held at AdeptiCon 2019 in Schaumburg, Illinois, rather than at the Fantasy Flight Games Center.

Apart from that, 2019 represents a year of transition, and we will be working throughout the year to improve our programs and events, meaning that we're aiming to deliver better and better play experiences—including those you might enjoy at the pinnacle of your game's competitive Organized Play: the World Championships!

Redirect Your Fleet

Published 19 December 2018 | Star Wars: Armada Redirect Your Fleet Try Something New with Season Four Organized Play for Star Wars™: Armada "It's a trap!"    –Admiral Ackbar, Star Wars: Return of the Jedi There are two ways to avoid flying your fleet into a trap. You could outwit and outmaneuver your enemy once the trap is sprung, but alternatively, you could assemble a fleet that can respond more swiftly to your commands—allowing you to steer your ships out of harm's way, even at the last moment. Either way, you'll find that the 2018 Season Four Tournament Kit for Star Wars™: Armada offers a range of valuable upgrades to help you better avoid your opponent's trap and, possibly, snare them in your own! So as you and your opponents head into the thick of battle during 2018 Season Four, you'll find plenty of reasons to stay on the move, to maximize your fleet's responsiveness, to experiment with the unexpected, to unleash a whole new arsenal, and to expand your talents as fleet admiral. Who knows? Your changes may even catch your opponents by surprise and improve your chances of claiming the season's top prizes! Choose a Side Season Four Organized Play for Star Wars: Armada finds the Galactic Civil War still raging across the galaxy. Rebels and Imperials continue to meet in ferocious battles for key star systems and objectives, and the prizes in the 2018 Season Four Tournament Kit support both sides equally. This means you'll have plenty of reason to head to battle, whether your organizer runs Fleet Patrol tournaments or schedules some other form of event. You'll want to win these prizes for your cause and keep them from falling into the wrong hands and bolstering enemy fleets! Core Prize The Tournament Kit contains seventeen copies of a double-sided extended art upgrade card that you can use to enhance your fleet. One side features the Boosted Comms upgrade, extending your ability to command your squadrons all the way to long range. The other side features the Slaved Turrets favored by ship captains who prefer to stay at long range and attack their foes from a single firing arc. One copy of this card is intended for the tournament organizer to keep or distribute as he or she sees fit; the other sixteen are to be awarded to participants in the season's Organized Play. At a Fleet Patrol tournament, the Top 16 players should each receive a copy. Elite Prizes Ships need more than comms systems and weapons; they need names as well. A good name can inspire the ship's crew, or it can invoke terror among your enemies. After you upgrade your ships with the Season Four Core Prize card, you might aim to title your Nebulon-B frigate or Gozanti-class cruiser, using one of the titles from the double-sided Elite Prize card. Printed at the same size as a standard LCG® card, this card features extended art on both sides, with the reliable Yavaris title on one side and the Suppressor title on the other. There are three copies of this card in each 2018 Season Four Tournament Kit. One is again intended for the tournament organizer, and the other two are awarded as elite prizes. At a Fleet Patrol tournament, these elite prizes are awarded to the top participants in the order of their finish, with each choosing to claim either one copy of this alternate art card or one set of the tokens awarded as the other elite prize. The 2018 Season Four Tournament Kit comes with two sets of three acrylic redirect tokens—green on one side and red on the other. As you look for ways to get your ships safely through your engagements with enemy fleets, these are bound to come in handy! Ready Your Fleet As the game of epic Star Wars fleet battles, Star Wars: Armada demands you plan well in advance of your maneuvers—even well in advance of your engagements. After all, your Mon Calamari cruisers and Star Destroyers are far too massive to respond swiftly to the threats they encounter. It falls to you to plan intelligently and build flexibility into the remainder of your fleet. What mixture of ships and squadrons will serve you best in the coming battles? Now is the time to experiment and take your rivals by surprise. Talk to your local retailer about getting involved with Season Four Organized Play for Star Wars: Armada! Discuss this article in our forums! Star Wars: Armada is an epic two-player game of tactical fleet battles in the Star Wars galaxy. Massive Star Destroyers fly to battle against Rebel corvettes and frigates. Banks of turbolasers unleash torrential volleys of fire against squadrons of X-wing and TIEs. As Rebel and Imperial fleets collide, it is your job to issue the commands that will decide the course of battle and, ultimately, the fate of the galaxy. © &amp; TM Lucasfilm Ltd.

The Fleet Is Yours

Published 14 November 2018 | Star Wars: Armada The Fleet Is Yours Decide the Fate of the Galaxy at a 2018 Star Wars™: Armada Regional Championship   "Deploy the fleet so that nothing gets off that system. You are in command now, Admiral Piett."    –Darth Vader, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back It's time to ready the fleet! The 2018 Star Wars™: Armada Regional Championships are nearly here, and you'll want to be ready well before the first shots are fired. After all, Star Wars: Armada is a game of epic fleet battles, featuring many of the Star Wars galaxy's largest warships. These are ships that boast crews of hundreds—even thousands. It takes them time to respond to new orders. And that means developing a strategy that embraces your strengths, baits your opponents into making mistakes, and sets you up for the eventual victory… In the end, it's the fate of the galaxy at stake—plus a whole lot of fantastic prizes! Top 64 Embrace the Galactic Empire's military strength and planetary conquests with this alternate art Imperial Star Destroyer Kuat Refit card, available to everyone in the Top 64 players at your Star Wars: Armada Regional Championship. Top 16 Playing within the shadows of Imperial Star Destroyers—and the looming arrival of the Super Star Destroyer—Rebel players understand the need to make big statements with little ships. Those who battle their way into the Top 16 will gain the ability to proudly proclaim their Rebel status with this frosted plastic Nebulon-B Escort Frigate card. Top 8 Once you're in range, it's time for your missiles, torpedoes, and lasers to rip through the stars, and if you make the Top 8, you'll be able to bring all the fire and explosions to life with a set of twelve custom dice. Top 4 The capital ships of Star Wars: Armada aren't really designed to zig-zag though enemy fire unscathed. Instead, they rely on their shields and reinforced hulls to withstand enemy fire. But you can still improve your chances of survival by cancelling enemy attack dice with the five acrylic evade defense tokens you'll get for making the Top 4. Regional Champion Winning the battles of the Star Wars: Armada Regional Championships for your faction is a reward in and of itself. After all, it will feel good to know that you've brought order to the Galactic Empire or fanned the flames of rebellion. However, there are other prizes at stake as well. Win a 2018 Star Wars: Armada Regional Championship, and you'll find yourself a hero of your chosen faction—complete with a trophy designed to look like a medallion encased in glass—and you'll walk away with a first round prize bye for an upcoming Star Wars: Armada National Championship! Answer the Call to Battle The fleet is at your command. The fate of the galaxy is at stake. The 2018 Star Wars: Armada Regional Championships are nearly here, and you can now review the list of events. Where will you answer the call to battle? Discuss this article in our forums!

"I Play to Win" Is a Lie

Published 28 September 2018 | X-Wing Second Edition "I Play to Win" Is a Lie A Designer Journal from Nate French Are games meant to be won? If not, why do we play games that have strong competitive scenes? In today's Designer Journal, designer Nate French takes a look at the nature of competition and suggests some alternative ways of thinking about winning.  It is helpful from time to time for those of us in the competitive gaming community to reflect on our own relationships with gaming and competition. What can we do to ensure that our hobby of competing with one another through gaming brings out the best in our selves, rather than the worst? This designer journal is one of my own recent attempts to wrestle with such a question. The statement “I play to win” has been used to rationalize and justify a fair bit of behavior that runs the gamut from off-putting to questionable to unethical and downright evil. As a competitive gamer who’s had some success in various arenas in the past, such a mindset has never been one that I have been completely at peace with. “Winning isn’t everything—it’s the only thing.” This overused quote and idea is often attributed to Vince Lombardi, but it is believed the original speaker was UCLA Bruins coach Red Sanders. Regardless of where it originated, it is frequently embraced by high-level competitors to focus on the supposed ultimate goal (winning) and to motivate them to do what they need to do in order to win. It shouldn’t be difficult to see how such a belief is unhealthy, and leads to many evils, great and small, in the world of competition. Unfortunately, such an idea is deeply engrained in our culture, and countless competitors find strength and reassurance in an “I play to win” approach to their sport or game. I should know, I’ve been there myself. Winning is seductive, and easy to fall in love with. As you win more, it feeds back into your identity as a so-called “winner.” Losers, on the other hand, are often derided: the very term is frequently used as an insult. But seeing winning as “the only thing”—the point, the end that justifies all means in any type of competition—is a mistake, a dire mistake that we must continually guard ourselves against believing. This task, I feel, is one of our deepest imperatives as competitive gamers. Making the task somewhat easier, I’ve found, is this: while the “play to win” attitude cloaks itself in the guise of strength, when you really dig in to the idea you begin to realize that it comes from a place of weakness. The Trap The biggest self-defeating trap in the “play to win” mentality is this: winning is a result, and we don’t get better at games by following results-oriented thinking. This is a concept I came across while studying poker, but the idea can transfer to any form of competition. What is results-oriented thinking? Basically, it’s judging the quality of your decisions (and your decision-making process) based on outcomes rather than judging the quality of those decisions on logic or objective analysis. Why is this type of thinking a bad thing? Ultimately, it’s because competitors don’t truly have any control over the outcome—the only thing we competitors can control is the quality of our decisions, and the outcomes take care of themselves. Don’t believe me? Let’s look at a few examples from different types of games. It’s easiest to see this in perfect information games, as they do the least to hide the connection between our decisions and our results. Consider a simple game like Tic-Tac-Toe. If both players play perfectly, the game inevitably ends in a draw. Put another way, you can only win a game of Tic-Tac-Toe if your opponent makes a mistake. As there is nothing (within the rules) that a player can do to “force” their opponent to make a mistake, winning this game is entirely reliant on a factor that I, as a competitor, have no control over. I can only play perfectly, and hope my opponent messes up. “But Tic-Tac-Toe is a simple game with a known solution. What about a more complex, unsolved game, such as Chess?” you might ask. While it is true that—as of this writing—Chess remains an unsolved game, this does not grant a competitor any additional agency in forcing a desired result. If both sides play perfectly, the outcome (currently unknown, but it will either be a draw, a win for black, or a win for white) is inevitable, and it is only through imperfect play by one player or the other that other outcomes can be achieved. Let’s now move our consideration to other types of games with variance and hidden information. In a broad sense, each of these devices serves to disguise the ways in which player error determines a game’s outcome. Variance is easiest to see. Imagine you make a play that, 99 times out of 100, is going to win you the game… and then the fated dice roll the one result that defeats you, throwing the win away. Curses! Even in such extreme cases, a truly results-oriented player would believe they made the wrong decision or, if they were on the other side of the improbable roll, believe they played the game perfectly. And either of these conclusions would be an obvious impediment to their development as a player. Hidden information (such as the hole cards in Texas Hold’em, or a player’s hand in a customizable card game) also serves to disguise the concept of “perfect” play, in that it demands competitors evaluate and analyze their play against all possible (or likely) holdings, and then choose optimal lines against the various possibilities an opponent could be sitting on. With such games, it’s very possible to make a correct play (correct against the possible range of cards the opponent could have) that in a particular instance turns out to lose the game (because they happen to have, against the odds, the one card in their deck that could beat your play). It’s also possible to blunder (make a play which would be wrong against their likely holding the vast majority of the time) that turns out in this particular instance to win the game because your opponent didn’t happen to have any of the dozens of likely outs that could have defeated your play. Such outcomes are not examples of superior or inferior play, they’re simply another case of running up against the wrong (or right) side of variance. Once variance and hidden information enter the picture, it’s possible to make terrible decisions and still win, and it’s also possible to make good decisions and still lose. Or, as co-host Andrew Brokos of the Thinking Poker podcast once suggested, “the end result of you winning the pot does not change the fact that the way you played the hand was a complete disaster.” What are our takeaways from these considerations of various types of games? Essentially, we as competitors don’t have as much control over our results as we’d initially believe. If a game is not decided by bad (or good!) luck, it was decided by a mistake (or series of mistakes) made by one of the competitors. Just as we cannot control luck, we cannot control whether or not our opponents make mistakes. All we can do then, as competitors, is eliminate as many mistakes as possible from our own play, and be prepared to capitalize on the mistakes our opponents do make.  A more profound way of thinking about this is the realization that at the heart of all competitive gaming—in which we strive to control the sole thing we have any control over, by eliminating mistakes from our own play—we are only competing against ourselves. This casts our opponents in a completely different light—they are no longer our enemies or adversaries that we must defeat and crush and overcome at any cost, but rather our allies, a mirror against which we can measure ourselves in our effort to grow and improve at our chosen game. And this realization, more than anything else, might change the way we treat those opponents—in victory and defeat. Nate French is the longest-tenured member in the card game department, and serves as a mentor and coach for the team. More often than not, he’s working on a project he can’t say anything about… yet! In his spare time he is an avid poker player and enjoys reading, writing, sports, (older) heavy metal, and talking about LeBron. Discuss this article in our forums! © and ™ Lucasfilm Ltd.

Executor Arrives

Published 3 August 2018 | Star Wars: Armada Executor Arrives Announcing the Super Star Destroyer Expansion Pack for Star Wars: Armada “If you will not be turned, you will be destroyed.”    –Emperor Palpatine, Star Wars: Return of the Jedi Order your own copy of the Super Star Destroyer Expansion Pack at your local retailer or online through our website today! Something huge is coming to Star Wars™: Armada. Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the Super Star Destroyer Expansion Pack! This expansion pack arrives to swell the forces of the Galactic Empire with the first ship of an entirely new class—huge ships. The pre-painted, beautifully sculpted Super Star Destroyer miniature within this expansion is the largest miniature yet created by Fantasy Flight Games, measuring over 24 inches from tip to tip. Of course, such a huge miniature serves as a stunning reminder of Imperial might on the battlefield—and it’s also a fully functional warship that you can add to your Imperial fleets. With four unique ship sheets, an assortment of tokens, and twenty-four upgrade cards, including iconic commanders like Admiral Piett and Emperor Palpatine, any rival fleet will tremble to face the might of your onslaught. You can pre-order the Super Star Destroyer Expansion Pack at your local retailer or online through our webstore today! Then, read on for more information. Unparalleled Size It’s immediately plain from the size of the Super Star Destroyer alone that this miniature is something special, unlike anything that has yet flown onto your table in Star Wars: Armada. In fact, the Super Star Destroyer is so large that it’s supported by one ship token placed on top of two standard large ship bases! We’ve already mentioned that the introduction of the Super Star Destroyer also marks the introduction of a new class of ships: huge ships. And this new class of ship has powers that reach far beyond mere size. For instance, the Super Star Destroyer features a total of six firing arcs—supplementing the standard front, rear, left, and right firing arcs with brand-new right-auxiliary and left-auxiliary firing arcs. And as you might expect, a huge ship like the Super Star Destroyer increases its attack powers to go with its extra firing arcs. The Super Star Destroyer can make up to three attacks from different firing arcs every round of the game. The Super Star Destroyer has six distinct firing arcs—forward, left, left-auxiliary, rear, right, and right-auxiliary. If the time for you to launch your attack has not yet arrived, huge ships also have the unique ability to pass. Once per round, when you would have to activate the Super Star Destroyer, you can choose instead to pass, allowing your opponent to activate another ship. Although the Super Star Destroyer must still activate each round, the ability to pass and delay your activation temporarily can lead your opponent directly into your trap. Even the command dials you assign to a Super Star Destroyer become more powerful. When you resolve one of these command tokens, you’ll also assign the corresponding command token to your ship! By getting more impact out of every command dial you assign to the Super Star Destroyer, you’ll be prepared to take on the entire enemy fleet on your own. Unmatched Firepower All of the advantages we’ve described so far are common to every huge ship—but the Super Star Destroyer has plenty of power to offer on its own merits. The cheapest way for you to field the Super Star Destroyer is by spending 220 points for the Star Dreadnought Command Prototype. $(document).ready(function() { var opts = { iframe: true, innerHeight: 561, innerWidth: 700 }; $('#11B7C').colorbox(opts); }); With eight attack dice from its forward firing arc, six ship tokens, a hull value of twenty-two, and nine upgrade slots, the Star Dreadnought Command Prototype offers a truly jaw-dropping addition to an Imperial fleet. And each of the other ship variants in the Super Star Destroyer Expansion Pack is even more expensive and even more powerful than the Star Dreadnought Command Prototype! Still, it’s not purely the ship that makes the Super Star Destroyer Expansion Pack so impressive. There’s also a wealth of upgrade cards that are sure to be valuable to Imperial players across the galaxy, including the debut of Emperor Palpatine $(document).ready(function() { var opts = { iframe: true, innerHeight: 386, innerWidth: 250 }; $('#115F7').colorbox(opts); }); himself as a commander in Star Wars: Armada. If you want to have the Emperor bless your efforts with his presence, it won’t come easily—Emperor Palpatine costs 35 points to equip as a commander for your Imperial forces. Still, his effects can be deadly as you work to pick apart and destroy your opponent’s defenses. After you deploy fleets, you’ll place one defense token of each type on Emperor Palpatine. Before any ships activate in a round, you can discard one of these tokens. For the rest of the round, if any enemy ship or squadron would spend a matching token, they must discard it instead! By spending the brace token from Emperor Palpatine, you can force your opponent to discard any brace tokens he wishes to use this round! In a fashion that’s truly fitting of the Sith Lord, you can manipulate your opponent’s actions with Emperor Palpatine. If you choose wisely, you may limit your opponent’s options and leave his plans in ruins, as he must choose to lose his most important defense tokens permanently or watch his ships disintegrate under the massive attacks of your Super Star Destroyer. We’ll take a much closer look at the other ship sheets and upgrade cards included in the Super Star Destroyer Expansion Pack in a future preview! The Might of the Empire The Imperial fleet is a force to be feared across the galaxy, and with their largest and most powerful capital ship deploying to your tables in Star Wars: Armada, you can crush your rivals in your grasp. Look for the Super Star Destroyer Expansion Pack (SWM20) early in the first quarter of 2019, and pre-order your copy at your local retailer or online through our website today!
