Current league organizer Devon M has defeated Eric to make it to the finals to play off against his predecessor Aaron P. Both players pledged to make this match a game where X-Wing returns to its ‘roots’ – a game where arcs matter! A rare sight for a finals table, multiple Imperial ships!
Commentator Tim has a chance to sit down with both players afterward and talk about the PTL and its evolution through 9 seasons.
Former league Boss Aaron P has made it to the semifinal round alongside his opponent Raf B who makes his first appearance to the PTL post-season. Adhering to the PTL’s rules of not repeating any unique pilots throughout any of their games in a single season, Raf has ‘saved’ his Miranda and Dash for this semifinal. Aaron has assigned his ‘fairship’ Rebel team of Lowhrick, Jess, Rex and Roark to push him to the finals.

Last month, 401 Games in Toronto was host to a special format X-Wing tournament where the only ships allowed to hit the table had to have appeared in any of the (non-Special Edition) Original Trilogy films – episodes IV, V, and VI. Players were still allowed to run any pilot that came with these ships despite not appearing in any of the films, so Rey piloting the Millenium Falcon was legal. All upgrades were also allowed with the exception of the Twin Laser Turret upgrade.
Here’s the semifinal match – we have four rounds of Swiss on our channel as well, and we will be posting the final match soon. Enjoy!
