The Bytown Smugglers League : Season 2

The Bytown Smuggler League Season 2 is about to start soon! Last season was a great success with 31 players and 171 games played at our sponsor locations! We heard you and here are some rule changes for this season.

We are moving from an 8 weeks duration to 12 weeks. One issue we had last season is that a lot of players rushed to get their 8 games in the first four weeks then it became harder for players to find opponents and new players didn’t had enough time to play their 8 matches if they joined mid-season. That rule change was voted unanimously.

Second change, we are allowing players to choose between standard 100pts or Epic 300pts with a minimum of 2 epic points per squad. A lot of us has unused huge ships and we see not reasons to not allow epic play, especially with the Scum ship coming out soon. That rule was voted with a clear majority

Third change, generics are now usable in 3 different lists. That was a debated issue. So instead of simply allowing them in any lists, limiting them to 3 lists still allow for creative list and hopefully, nobody will try to play 4 tlt y-wings 6 times. This rule change was voted majorly towards allowing them.

Last change, we are replacing the top 8 with an end of season tournament. We felt that a top 8 with only 8 players was anti-climatic. Instead, top  8 will get a first round bye if they wish and we will have a great and fun tournaments where everyone can attend! It will also help out a lot in prize distribution!

    1. Its to ensure a team fields a huge ship… or not just huge ships. The CR90 and Raider are worth 3 epic points. The GR75, Gozanti and soon to be CROC are worth 2 epic points.
