Flight Club Champs Summary

The Flight Club Championship event series is an X-wing 2.0 competition with a focus on creative list building and unexpected challenges.

The Flight Club Championship event series includes a set of qualifying events (FCQ) that will put players into a championship event with players of similar skill/experience level. The event series will conclude with 3 separate championship events for each of our 3 levels. Theses 3 Levels are Recruit, Veteran, and Ace.

Each qualifier will have 6 rounds. Players are allowed to play in as many FCQs as they would like. Your best performance in a qualifying event will place you in the corresponding championship event. 

Recruit Championship - Players with a best performance of 0-2 wins in a FCQ
Veteran Championship - Must have a best performance of 3-4 wins in a FCQ
Ace Championship - Must have a best performance of 5-6 wins to in a FCQ

Each Championship event will run on a different day and will crown a separate Champion for each event. A player can only participate in 1 (one) Championship event. If the date for their corresponding Championship event doesn't work with their schedule a player may attend a lower tier championship if their average performance is equal to that level.

All events in the series are played utilizing the Table Top Simulator and the Unified X-Wing 2nd Edition module.

Players are expected to respect each other's time and follow all instructions in order to keep the event running smoothly.  Players who show up late for synchronous events or miss scheduled asynchronous game will be removed from the tournament WITHOUT a refund.

This will be played as a Formal level event. Players are expected to have working understanding of the basic rules of X-Wing Second Edition and be comfortable the basic functions of Table Top Simulator. Lack of knowledge of how to use the basic functions of TTS or personal technological failure will also result in you being removed from the tournament WITHOUT a refund.

Starting Each Round

  • Before the event, before every round, and at the end of every round you should be in the "Galaxies Announcements" Voice Channel

  • Dion will announce the start of the round, give the end of round time, and begin a unified 85 minute timer.

  • Go to the "Round-Pairings" channel to see what table you are assigned.

  • Go to the GSP Discord Voice channel that corresponds with your table number.

  • Confirm that your opponent is who you are assigned to play. 

  • The player with the most secure internet connection should make the room.

    • Name the room - GSP# (Example: GSP54)

    • The number is the table number you are assigned.

    • Your room's password MUST be: GSP# (Example: GSP54)

      • The number is the table number you are assigned.

      • GSP should be capitalized

      • When setting up the room do not limit the number of seats so that judges and other staff can enter room as need.

  • Spawn TWO copies of your squad, setting one in your play area and the other on the unused table

    • Spawn your list using 1 of the 2 methods below

      • Using the YASB TTS text import​

      • Pull the List from a recently saved disk

    • If you require extra color coding outside of what TTS automatically does, you must have it saved your in "saved objects" in TTS.

      • Additional color coding during set up of a game is not allowed for the sake of time

      • Once set up is complete, start your table clock on TTS and begin play
         

End of Round

  • If the announced "End of Round" time arrives before your table timer finishes, your game is over.

  • Only Finish the round if you have reached the System Phase. For the purposes of this event the Planning Phase will NOT constitute the beginning of a new round.

  • When your game is complete, BOTH Players must enter/confirm the results on Table Top TO. ​Please double check for accuracy. This is the number 1 things that slows down events.

Tech Issues, Expectations & Resources

  • All players signing up for the event MUST:

    • Know the basics of using Table Top Simulator​ (5 games minimum)
    • Communicate to their opponent Via Discord Voice chat
      • (Using headphones/headset is highly recommended)​
    • Report all results on Table Top TO
  • Technology issues always happen but make sure to set yourself up for success by testing to make sure your devices can run/access all required programs and sites at the same time.
     

  • Lack of knowledge of how to use TTS or personal technological failure will also result in you being removed from the tournament WITHOUT a refund.
     

  • Worse Case Scenarios:

    • In the event of an event-wide TTS failure we will add time to the event clock and if need be, postpone matches to another date.

    • While we don't have control over all the issues, we will do our best to mitigate problems as they arise.
       

Rules Questions/Judges

This event will have judges available for questions throughout the event.

  • If a judge is needed:

    • Both players should move over to the Judge Room voice channel.

    • Judges will speak with players and if need be join the players' game on TTS.
       

  • DO NOT call a Judge for range/arc checks. TTS does all of this for you.​

    • The right click arc checker supersedes the visual arc checker.
