“Make ten men feel like a hundred.”
–Cassian Andor, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
Conflict permeates the galaxy. Everywhere, territories have been marred by the ravages of war. Now, a tipping point has been reached and the finest commanders of both the Galactic Empire and the Rebel Alliance must assemble their armies to clash in an epic finale that will bring this chapter of the Galactic Civil War to a close.
On June 22 and 23, you can join the action and get a ground-level perspective on how the final battles of Star Wars™: Legion unfold at the 2019 World Championships. In Roseville, Minnesota, eight of the top players from the AdeptiCon High Command Invitational will gather and compete for the ultimate prize. Be sure to tune into our Twitch channel or our YouTube channel to catch all of the action.
The action starts on Saturday, when players will be divided into two groups of four players, based on their placement from the High Command Invitational. From there, each group will play a round robin series of three games against members of their own group. The following day, the top two players from each group will advance to an elimination bracket. By the end of Sunday, the winner of the bracket will be crowned the Star Wars: Legion World Champion!
The livestream will run from 10:00 AM CDT (UTC -5) to 6:00 PM CDT on both Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday, we’ll be streaming a full game from each of the three rounds. Then, on Sunday, the entire elimination bracket will be streamed, including both semi-final matches. Streaming the full elimination bracket should allow the viewing audience an interesting perspective on how the final match could potentially play out.
Will the players make use of the sturdy TX-225 GAVw Occupier Combat Assault Tank or the nimble X-34 Landspeeder, or well they stick to utilizing more traditional combat units? While it’s impossible to know exactly how the battlefields will look now, our Fantasy Flight Games staff commentators will be sure to offer their insights once the competition begins, up until the last army is standing.
Whether you’re watching the World Championships from home or at a streaming party at your favorite local game store, don’t miss out on the epic conclusion of this year of Star Wars: Legion Organized Play events
