We continue the playoff action with two talented players flying unorthodox lists in this semifinal match of the 2017 PTL Open.
At the end of April, Toronto hosted the PTL Open, a 2-day fan-run X-Wing convention that featured a special format main event and many casual side events. For the main event, players were required to build 3 separate lists and at the start of each match, secretly choose which of the 3 lists they would play that round. You can find all of the Swiss round matches at our youtube channel ‘vttvlive’, but we’ve begun to upload the playoff matches! This format has encouraged some very offbeat lists and while the skill level of players at this event is high, the matches you’ll see are those you wouldn’t normally expect from a ‘regular’ x-wing competition.
On Tested there are a lot of great Star Wars geek videos, like how to build a lightsaber or a replica of Han Solo’s blaster.
I was completely blown away by Adam Savage’s Chewbacca costume and working C-P30 backpack. It’s simply amazing. If you haven’t seen it yet, take a look.
Here are some Star Wars videos I think any fan of the franchise should see. Continue reading From the Serial to the Formula in Star Wars
Season 7 of the Prototype Toronto League concludes with this nearly 2-hour slugfest between two X-Wing grandmasters! This season’s playoffs were filled with some great matches and we can’t wait for the next season!
X-Wing has evolved and grown over the years. New mechanics, new cards, new maneuvers, and new ships keep pushing the limits of what can be done on the tabletop. As a game, it’s one of the best in a generation and it’s popularity stands as testament to this.
Yet sometimes a Star Wars fan who grew up on the Original Trilogy just wants to play with the iconic ships of the franchise. So we decided to throw a little old school X-Wing party here at DockingBay416.
We’re going to have a tournament with new rules and old ships and we’re calling it OT Play, or Original Trilogy Play.
Here are the rules: Continue reading Introducing the OT X-Wing Format
A second QF match was recorded earlier last week! Some really talented players and creative lists in this series – yes even when a list has triple Jumpmasters.

Oh boy, where to begin.
It has come to light that George Lucas, in his original script for Episode III, had another “I am your father scene.” This time it was the Emperor telling Anakin that he’s his dad.
Here is what Palpatine said in the original script,
“I have waited all these years for you to fulfill your destiny. I arranged for your conception. I used the power of the Force to will the midichlorians to start cell divisions that created you.” Continue reading The Emperor is Darth Vader’s Father, According to Lucas
