Toronto’s Star Wars gaming Store Champs season kicks off with the X-Wing SC at 401 Games on June 4th, 2017. Some of the local players were gracious enough to offer their expertise in commentating the top cut matches – here’s the semifinal.
Tristan’s rebel swarm had what it took to make it to the finals, but Joe brought a surprise – Horton Salm! Not quite a match you’d expect in any other final but that’s the beauty of the PTL Open format! One of these players walks away the first PTL Open 2017 Champion!
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.
So recently there was an X-Wing convention in Toronto called the PTL Open. It was attended by 80+ players and it featured a 2-day main event tournament as well as many side events, including the Furball free-for-all alternate dogfight format. It was such a fun time, we recorded the match and this may be the first such recorded game on the internet! The main event will be going up soon as well but we thought we would start with something fun!
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!
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.
The Prototype Toronto League has been a long standing institution of the Toronto X-Wing scene, and VTTV has started to record videos of the playoffs of this creative league format. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jtmgCWT9aFc
On September 9-11, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, Lion Rampant hosted the Canadian Nationals championship for all of FFG’s Organized Play-supported games. Our turnout for the X-Wing event was a little under 120 players and VTTV Live was able to capture video of the Top 32 cut matches.
401 Games is holding its X-Wing Regional on June 25th and will have a livestream of the entire tournament starting at 10AM EST, at https://www.twitch.tv/401games and they will be featuring commentary from the first match to the final table. These streams are very popular and it’s a chance to join in on the chat and discussion of the matchups of some of the best players in Canada.
