The Road to Adepticon: The Schaumburg Prime Offensive!
This Year we are back to 900 points and we are now in a two day format. Day one is 3 rounds and a Qualifier for day 2. Day two is the top 8 players from day 1. Lets dive in and look in depth at this years North American Firestorm Armada Championships!
Basically what I am saying is that you should not be shy about signing up for the Saturday event. There will still be prizes. You get the really good prizes if you win the day and are crowned the North American Champ on day 2. Look at it as 3 solid games of Firestorm Armada Saturday with the possibility of 3 more solid games and even more fabulous prizes on day 2.
Now that I have gotten that out of the way first lets look at the Tournament. As I said we are back to 900 points for day one after player feedback from last year. We have found, through lots of play testing and actual tournament play, that this is a very good point level for competitive play. It makes list building a little bit more challenging and allows you to take some cool stuff, but not all of it. You really have to choose.
The First day will be 3 custom missions, that are in the tradition of the previous two years. Multi tier missions. Unlike last year, this year will be 3 brand new never before seen missions. The Primer missions will give you a good idea of what to expect, however the actual final versions of the missions will have some added danger and possibly tweaks based on feedback from players. Players will play 3 rounds on Saturday. The top 8 players will qualify to play on Sunday. If you are unable to play on Sunday or don't want to, your spot will pass to the next player in the order. There will be prizes for players on day one. Our best sport and Painting award will be awarded on day one as well.
The winner of day two will be crowned the North American Firestorm Armada Champion and take home some nice prizes. Including some Spartan exclusives. They will claim the bragging rights and the gold medal.
So there is the North American Firestorm Championships in a nutshell. It is a different format and I am looking forward to it. This sets the stage for the future and a bigger event in years to come. I wanted to also announce that after a skype call with Spartan Neil last night, we will have some new stuff at Adepticon. New ships and some new stuff. We will also have a preview of the new edition of Firestorm Armada. There are still spots available in all the events. Sign up today and reserve your spot!
Until Next time crush the Alliance and as Always.......
