Star Wars Armada: The Massing at Sullust

Pork Chop Gaming & Proud Lion present
Star Wars Armada: The Massing At Sullust
Pre-Release Tournament

What Is The Massing at Sullust?
FFG's The Massing at Sullust is a special preview event, showcasing the second wave of Armada starships and squadrons at exclusive preview tournaments taking place the weekend of October 2nd – 4th.

How Does It Work?
Players will bring standard 300-point fleets and compete through three Swiss-style rounds, following all the standard rules described in the official Armada Tournament Rules document.

Then after the Swiss rounds, the top two players will confront each other in a final match of epic proportions!

Both players at the final table will set aside the fleets that they played throughout the Swiss rounds and will build new, 400-point fleets that utilize the Wave II starships and squadrons. One player (decided at random, STC) will construct an Imperial fleet that includes the Imperial-class Star Destroyer and Raider-class corvette, as well as at least one of the Imperial squadrons from the Rogues and Villains Squadron Pack. The other player will construct a Rebel fleet that includes the MC80 star cruiser and MC30c frigate, as well as one or more of the Rebel squadrons from the Rogues and Villains Squadron Pack. Both players will then be able to complete their 400-point fleets by adding starships, squadrons, upgrades, and objectives drawn from their existing collections, plus those from the Wave II expansions under their command.

Using these newly upgraded fleets, the players will battle for the fate of the galaxy… and the right to take home the Armada Wave II expansion of their choice!

At the event of this final battle, both players will return all Armada Wave II expansions to the TO, ready for prize giving.

What are the prizes?
  • 1st Place – First choice of one preview expansion
  • 2nd Place – Second choice of one preview expansion
  • 3rd Place – Third choice of one preview expansion
  • 4th Place – Fourth choice of one preview expansion
  • Every player will also receive – One commemorative Imperial II-class Star Destroyer ship card with extended art, one alternate art Nebulon-B Escort Frigate card and one alternate art Tie Fighter Squadron card.
There will be extra prizes awarded throughout the day taken from the Star Wars Armada Spring and Summer Tournament kits, ranging from dice bags to acrylic tokens and more alternate art cards.

What time do I need to be there, and when is it likely to end?
Registration begins at 9am, with first game rounds starting at 10am. Each game will last up to 120 minutes. An hour lunch break is planned midway through the day. We are anticipating a finishing time of around 8pm, though this will depend on the length of the games played over the course of the day.

NOTE: Players who are not ready to play at 10am will automatically forfeit their first round as a loss. Players who do not arrive at the venue before 10am will forfeit their place in the tournament. In this case, tickets will not be refunded.

There will be a break for lunch at 2:30pm, subject to change.
