I am sooo going to OD on SWM that weekend. Very intrigued by the Jedi Challenge. So between the three legs, the KOTOR sealed, and the Master Event, not sure when I will find time for league. I also want to try the Dynamic Duo if I don't make the final 8. I would also like to explor the con.

I like the Jedi Challenge idea. Its pretty much a take off of my Ironman event.

I dont suppose you could be awesome Boris and post the event numbers. I cant find anything SWM related on the excel sheet for SWM.

I just want to iron things out here:
No $2k.
Not a championship.
Revised Map List.

Well, not too bad. I can say I finished 15th in the only ever official SWM championship. Now I will look at a repeat performance for the first ever Jedi Master event.

Ugh....Going up to $10 per tournament this year? :(

And $20 for the Jedi Master Event on Saturday is kind of ridiculous if you ask me, especially since there is no mention whatsoever as to what the prize support will be for it. Since there isn't a $2k prize in there anywhere, will it be worth the $20 fee and playing ALL day long?

As it stands right now, it's kind of up in the air as to whether I'll be able to go at all this year ( :( ) but the increased prices may cause me to play a lot more League. We'll see I guess.


Also.....100 point Tile Wars? Are you serious? Shouldn't that be 200 points? I seriously hope that's a mistake. 100 point Tile Wars games are not nearly as fun as 200 point ones. :(

I hope you can make it. Heck i hope I can make it. Assuming i can, i plan on doing a LOT of league as if i get to go to Gencon i wont be getting a case of KOTOR, so that will have to be my source of minis.

Yeah, without there being a 'Championship', I think I will definitely forego any case purchases of KOTOR before hand, and then play things by ear afterwards. If I have to play the Jedi Masters on Saturday with a squad that only has stuff up through LOTF, no big deal. Or hopefully, I can acquire whichever pieces from KOTOR I want before then. I am hoping to have everything figured out by the end of June so I can still grab my GenCon badge before the prices go up.

And I'll probably sign up for a few events, and see how things go throughout the weekend as to whether I play more of the various events, or play more League instead. We'll see!
