NATIONALS

ETX is proud to present our headline events for 2017: the National Championships for Fantasy Flight GamesAndroid: Netrunner and A Game of Thrones!

Saturday and Sunday will be two days of fierce competition for title and glory on the road to World Championships at FFG’s Game Center in Minnesota. Entry into Nationals is included with the purchase of a full weekend pass. The winner of each National event will earn a flight to the FFG Game Center and a first-round bye at Worlds.

 

Both Nationals events will follow the same general structure: Swiss rounds on Saturday, followed by a top cut to elimination rounds on Sunday. The number of rounds and the size of the cut will depend on the total number of participants:

– Up to 31 players: 4 rounds of Swiss
– Up to 63 players: 5 rounds of Swiss
– Up to 127 players: 6 rounds of Swiss
– 128+ players: 7 rounds of Swiss

– Up to 24 players: Cut to top 4
– Up to 48 players: Cut to top 8
– 49+ players: Cut to top 16

The top cut of the Netrunner National will be a Double Elimination tournament. The top cut of the Thrones National will be Single Elimination. The final matches will be untimed. In addition, the finals for the Thrones tournament will be a best-of-three match.

For the start times of each day of each event, please see the events calendar. A lunch break will be scheduled on the day of, no more than four rounds into any given game’s Swiss matches.
