Store Tournaments, Scum and Villainy


Store Tournament- Evansville, IN

So I don't know how many of y'all are somewhat local to the area, and by the area, I mean my area, but lo and behold, it would appear that I might actually get to play in my local store tournament. 

If you do happen to be around Evansville, the tournament is going to be at Comic Quest and starts at noon on Saturday (21 Feb). Entry is $10, 100 point lists, etc. etc. 

I'm under the impression this is an actual FFG Sanctioned Store Championship with the usual trappings as such, but to be honest, I'm not 100% sure on that. I don't want to sound negative or anything, just saying that although I'm literally like 5 minutes away from this store, I've had zero involvement whatsoever with this, so take this more as information rather than an endorsement. Mainly saying that in case some of y'all out-of-towners see this and feel strongly one way or another about officially sanctioned tournaments. In any case, I do plan on attending assuming nothing crazy in my personal life goes down. 

As for what I'll be flying, well, it'll either be really effective or really stupid. I've not had a chance to play much at all the past few months, but as I'm wont to do, I shunned the usual tournament lists for something of my own devising. It's slightly cooler than my 4 TIE Advanced list I rolled at the Urbana Regionals last year, and by cooler I mean more dangerous, but who knows if I'll actually be able to do anything with it. I'll tell y'all all about it on Monday. 

Those of y'all playin' in your Store Championships- what are you flying? Are you sticking with Fat Hans and VT/ Phantoms or what? 



Scum and Villainy Release TODAY!

As usual, I'm actually writing this in advance, but from everything I've seen, by the time you read this (or very shortly thereafter), S&V will finally be available. I don't know if the same West Coast longshoreman's slowdown is what's been affecting S&V's release date, but it's definitely been causing some issues with overseas parts here at the plant. In any case, they're supposed to be available from your favorite retailer today, so for those of y'all who didn't pre-order, you oughta be able to swing by your local FLGS or your favorite internet game store and get hooked up with S&V.
