Hi everybody!
It's officially less than 100 days to GenCon so it time for the event schedule release!

We are bringing back the Bounty Hunters Challenge this year. It will run all weekend long. It will run for 1 hour at a time. The schedule is Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 11am, 12pm, 1pm, 2pm, 3pm and 4pm. On Sunday we have spots from 11am thru 3pm.

Thursday we have the Jedi Challenge! It is a new format this year. We still have 100, 150, and 200 point tournaments but this year we have a restricted set list for each one.
The 9am 100pt will use Rebel Storm through The Force Unleashed. The 1pm 150pt will use Legacy of the Force through Masters of the Force. The 5pm 200pt will use all of the Vsets through Galactic Heroes but no Epics.
We also have the return of the Hoth Mass Battle starting at 9am and again at 2pm.
At 7pm we have the Clone Wars Mass Battle and the night concludes with 200pt Epic Duos starting at 9pm.

The 2013 Championship is Friday again this year! The championship kicks off at 9am sharp and we will play Swiss rounds based on attendance.

Also on Friday we have the 100pt Dynamic Duo at 10am and at 3pm we have a regular 100pt tournament.

We have two new events on Friday this year, Minis Madness and Assassin Style. The 4pm Minis Madness will remind you of March Madness! Players Compete for control of the Galaxy with 64 pre-built 50 point Star Wars Miniatures squads. The winner will receive a complete set of Rebel Storm!

In the 6pm Assassin Style you get a squad of two characters and two targets. Can you survive?

We also have the Battle of Geonosis Mass Battles on Friday starting at 1pm and again at 6pm.

Saturday is the dreaded Sith Trials--prove that you are worthy by competing in all three legs of this event.
The day starts off by playing in the 200pt Mystery Map tournament at 9am. It continues with the 100pt Light Side/ Dark Side at 1pm. Fringe and Mandalorian characters can be on either side and the Yuuzhan Vong are on the Dark side. It finishes up at 5pm with 200pt Tile Wars.

This year we are debuting the Endor Mass Battle starting at 9am and again at 1pm.

Also, we are hosting a Queen's Gambit board game Championship. We have four qualifiers starting at 10am, 12pm, 2pm and 4pm. The championship, for the two players with the most points in qualifiers, will be at 7pm Saturday night.

Finally on Saturday we have the Team Tournament using the Royal Rumble rules. It will start at 9pm

Sunday we have a day full of Mass Battles. We have the Death Star Trench Run at 9am, 11am, and 1pm. Also debuting this year is the Death Star II Mass Battle. It will also be at 9am, 11am, and 1pm.

We also will be having our Command of the Galaxy sealed event! It starts at 9am and we only have 48 tickets available. Get them ASAP as this is one of our most popular events!

I hope that I see a lot of you at GenCon!

Awesome schedule. Seriously, this is the best line-up for Star Wars Minis at GenCon to date!

James, awesome work.

Everyone thank him for putting a lot of work to get this thing rolling!

It's a great schedule and yes...

But statements like this always piss me off a little bit. Every person who did a schedule every year put in a lot of effort and heavily monitored feedback from the community to make improvements year after year. Thanks for undermining all that effort through the subtle insult made about the work they did. Though not surprising, very disappointing nonetheless.

Leave it to you to make it about yourself when it had nothing to do with you.

Jim F will always hold a soft spot in my heart and he truly is the godfather - In a lot of ways we wouldn't be here without him.

The game has evolved a lot and I really think for where we are at in the game now we couldn't have a better line-up.

My comment was 100% positive about this year and in no way was meant as a slight to anyone else.

I never said anyone in any other year didn't work hard. I am just really excited about this year's line-up, and I certainly should have the right to be.

We have some new events that sound awesome, and some really interesting twists on past events.

I think credit is due to those who put the line-up together. I credited James, and that is valid - but I know Eric L and Jason K did a lot of work to help put the line-up together as well.

I have always had an absolute blast at GenCon, and I am so excited for this year.

So with all this community feedback to make improvements year after year then shouldn't every year be the best Gen Con lineup to date. I'm confused as to why you are accusing him of undermining people from previous years but say that the community has feed back every year to make it better. Isn't that the point of this community feedback, to make it better, thus resulting in the best Gen Con Lineup to date.

FWIW, as an outsider to this discussion I didn't hear anything derogatory or insulting or undermining in Tim's original post, not at all. All I heard was someone who is excited to go to Gencon this year. I wish I could go too!

I, in turn, give much kudos to all the organizers (of all years), who work hard to improve the SWM Gencon experience every year! This is entirely a fan-run game now, and the more encouragement and support we give each other, the better. :)

I love the line-up as well. I will once again this year, be competing all 4 days at SWM!!!!!!! I will only have time to sneak away and play one other game.............my second favorite game to in the world to play, "Lord of the Rings The Miniatures Game" North American Championship, which I started playing just before "Rebel Storm" came out! :)

PS
Please don't take this as a complaint, but does anyone know why the 500 pt format was removed this year? I came in second last yr, and I am disappointed my fav format got the boot....................... Can you bring it back next yr???? Pretty please..............
