Star Wars: Destiny

A fabled cast of characters that span the entire Star Wars saga clash in the fast-paced game of “what if?” duels, Star Wars: Destiny. Whether you team up with heroes like Obi-Wan Kenobi and Rey or villains like General Grievous and Kylo Ren, the Star Wars universe opens up like never before as you play out nearly any confrontation that you can imagine. Filled with Jedi, Sith, bounty hunters, pilots, scoundrels and more, all of these beloved characters are found in the game while letting players experience the various strengths and abilities of these classic characters. 

For the 2019 October World Championship, the diversity of these characters is further exemplified through the numerous rewards you can win!

Prize Wall

The Star Wars: Destiny prize wall will feature a wide assortment of prizes, only some of which are shown below! Among these previewed prizes, you’ll find clone trooper and clone commander helmet shield tokens, promotional cards that feature newer additions to the Star Wars universe like Poe Dameron, Iden Versio, and Enfys Nest as well as classic characters like IG-88, Yoda, and Darth Vader. A playmat of three Ewoks set against a space nebula will be one of the many playmats available to World Championship attendees. In addition to these prizes, you’ll find many more rewards that are unique to the prize wall which are attainable with prize tickets, including more promotional cards, tokens, and playmats!

Participation and Placement Prizes

Simply for participating, Star Wars: Destiny players will receive a deckbox of Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker’s final confrontation abroad the Death Star II, as well as a pair of prize tickets to kickstart their prize wall venture! Players will also earn two additional prize tickets per win and one prize ticket per loss during the main events. There will be many more opportunities to earn prize tickets throughout the weekend, as side events will be following a similar structure for awarding prize tickets.

Last but not least, the Top 64 overall players will win a striking playmat of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Maul facing off with crossed lightsabers, while the Top 32 overall players will also receive a set of ten gold and black acrylic resource tokens!

Champion

The winner of the Star Wars: Destiny World Championship will be awarded with a one-of-a-kind playmat featuring a stunning illustration of Amilyn Holdo’s heroic sacrifice to save the Resistance transports during their desperate escape to the world of Crait. Due to her selfless act, Vice Admiral Holdo was able to cripple the First Order fleet as her jump into hyperspace decimated their forces and cleanly cut Supreme Leader Snoke’s flagship, the Supremacy, in two. Along with the other rewards and prize tickets gained along the way, the renowned champion will also receive a unique trophy (not pictured) denoting their impressive achievement!

Star Wars: X-Wing

Star Wars: X-Wing places you directly in the cockpit of a starfighter, as you try to outwit and outmaneuver enemy squadrons amongst the stars! At the 2019 October World Championship, you’ll find a host of prizes suited for an ace pilot. No matter what faction you fly, or what ships are in your squadron, these rewards are designed to be a direct reflection of your skills as a squadron commander. 

Maintain your target lock on these prizes as rival pilots will be gunning for the same rewards! Your opponent will not hesitate to strike. Keep your aim true and follow through!

Taking part in the Star Wars: X-Wing World Championship yields several exclusive prizes, including a spread of promotional cards including Plo Koon, Delta 7B and Battle Meditation! Depending on your chosen faction, you will also be given three extended art cards, such as Trade Federation Drone, Delta Squadron Pilot, and Contracted Scout. Day 2 players will be rewarded with a copy of each of these extended art cards, no matter which faction you fight for!

And perhaps most impressively, all X-Wing attendees will also receive an exclusive alternate painted Plo Koon ship, complete with a maneuver dial, ship marker, and token set!

Finally, simply for participating, each player will also be given a pair of prize tickets. Additional prize tickets may be earned via side events or achieving top placements in the main event. These prize tickets can be turned into a number of rewards that are unique to the prize wall like extended art cards, acrylic tokens, alternate ship punch, tote bags, and art prints! Through the use of these prize tickets, you’ll be flying in style in no time.

Top 64 and 32

Players who make their way into the Top 64 (per flight) will be awarded with silver-and-green focus and evade tokens. The Top 32 players (per flight) will receive a red-and-black range ruler with the World Championship symbol, denoting your accomplishment at this high-level event! During the final elimination rounds on Saturday, the Top 32 players will be given a unique Plo Koon damage deck. 

Top 16

Only the most skilled squadron commanders will break into the Top 16 during the elimination rounds and their efforts will be greatly rewarded for doing so!

Top Faction, Finalist, and Champion

The top player per faction and per day will be awarded with a striking black and gold magnetic template tray emblazoned with the symbol of their faction.
