Our first X-Wing event of 2017 saw 18 players attempting to pilot their ships to victory! With FFG's Q1 Tournament Kit and £50 of JustPlay store credit as prizes, the meta broke down as follows:
7 Rebel, 5 Imperial and 6 scum - a very even field
18 players meant that MOV would be crucial, and it was in the last round, with our previous tournament champion Dan Sellen missing out on the top 4 cut by a small ship's worth of points.

Congratulations to our top 4 players - you can check out their lists below:
Our Top 4 (left to right): Angus, Robert, David and Stephen
The first semi final saw our two locals, David (undefeated in the swiss) and Stephen square off - they'd done brilliantly to get to the semis but only one could advance, and Stephen took the win!
In the second semi final, Robert took on Angus, with a convincing win to the experienced Commonwealth Defender pilot; congratulations to Angus on getting to the semis, it was his first time at one of our events and I know he was very happy to make it that far.
In the final, Stephen - in his first X-Wing tournament, to boot - was excited to take on veteran and previous JustPlay tournament winner Robert. Robert's experience carried the day, so congratulations to Robert; the first winner in our tournament series for 2017!
