This would be the second tournament that my local game store (Comic Culture & The Games Store, Lincoln, UK) had run for Conquest, and I decided to go for a completely different Ork build to my previous deck. I changed it to more of a swarm build, including cards like Snotling Attack and Promise of Glory to enhance the swarm feel. Here is what I went with…

Star Wars Worlds

Welcome to the World Championships

Here I’m going to be providing text coverage of the World Championships to the best of my ability, updated as often as completely as possible. For the most recently-updated tournament standings and records, follow the Team Sandcrawla Twitter account, @TeamSandcrawla. As the day continues, this post will be updated with new titles and content, so be sure to check back regularly. I hope to do some features on the decks that are featuring prominently at the event, as well as the personalities who make Day Two, so the community has a better idea of who is competing at the event and what strategies are represented. Watch this channel for updates starting Thursday morning!

In a very exciting announcement at Worlds this week, FFG has addressed the ever-growing card pool of LCGs and how they threaten to alienate new players and retailers from entry.

Now, when a LCG hits its 8th cycle, the first 2 active cycles will drop from competitive play eligibility, with Rotation that essentially mimicks what Magic: The Gathering and Pokemon have done for years.

This is good news for several reasons, which we will talk about in an upcoming podcast.

Discuss!!

Here’s a recording of the live stream from 8PM EST tonight.

Torquemada (wonder if he hates his parents for that name) is an interesting cat, indeed. I have to say that Hoop got a major jump on me partly due to the 8/8 that Torque boasts, as well as a flood of Psykers. To defeat Eldar – or any Faction, for that matter – you need that kind of start.

Obviously the card pool is going to be a little different come the time that Torque’s Sig Squad is released, but at least it gets you an idea of how he sets up and the combos that are possible.

(BTW, @30:45 attacked by my son to read a bedtime story!! Haha. No, I don’t edit that stuff out. Makes us more REAL!!!!

And yes, I did read him a bedtime story after the stream. What kinda Dad d’ya think I am??)

Enjoy the stream!
