Ptl Season 8 Final Battle Report

It offers a unique experience to try out different off Meta ideas against challenging opponents. The community is one of the best and the diversity of the lists flown help to keep matches fresh and interesting while reinforcing important skills like adapting strategy on the fly and positioning.

PTL Open: Furball Side Event

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!
