This weekend at JustPlay we had our Christmas Party, part of which was a Destiny tournament which turned out to be quite sizeable at 16 players! A brilliant showing - the free cake might have made all the difference!
The structure we have been running for all of our Destiny events so far has been the following
75 minute matches
Each match is best of three games
At the end of the round time, players take 5 more turns after the currently active player has finished his turn
So with 16 players, we played 4 rounds of Swiss with a cut to top 4.
Players getting stuck in on round 1!
We had a really varied field taking part in the event, with some surprising decks having good success - the Destiny meta will be a varied one, not just Han/Rey and Vader/Raider as some people would have you believe! Here's a meta breakdown from the event:
Elite General Grievous, Count Dooku
Elite General Grievous, Jango Fett
Elite Padme, Rebel Trooper x2
Elite Kylo Ren, Storm Trooper x2
Darth Vader, Storm Trooper x2
Elite Kylo Ren, General Grievous
Elite General Veers, Nightsister x2
Bala-Tik, Nightsister, Storm Trooper x2
Elite Leia Organa, Elite Rey
Elite Han Solo, Leia Organa
Elite Grievous, Kylo Ren
Elite Rey, Padawan x2
Elite Kylo Ren, Darth Vader
Nightsister x2, Storm Trooper x2

After 4 rounds of Swiss the final standings looked like this:

Ian and Phil made it to the finals beating the top two Swiss finishers - both semi finals were rematches from the Swiss rounds that both of the winners had previously lost. A Hero vs Villain final was on the cards, and you can check it out below on our YouTube channel - there's also a winners' interview and deck tech!
