How Do Regional Championships Fit into Organized Play?

Regional Championships are your chance to create a community that spans beyond your town or city and the first big test for competitive players on their road to World Championship Weekend in November. A premier event, Regional Championships attract players hoping to earn the precious first-round bye at their National Championship and gain a leg up on their opponents.

Regional Championships are exclusive events and there are a limited number of them run around the world each year. We are excited to announce that this year we are increasing the number of events to better serve the needs of players. In the United States, each region can host up to three Regional Championships (see the map below). If you are outside of the United States, contact your distributor for more information on Regional Championships in your country.

What Does Premier Level Mean?

Premier-level events are the most prestigious tournaments FFG supports. Players can come to these events expecting the highest level of competition, as well as the strictest enforcement of rules. From FFG’s official tournament rules:

Premier events are the highest level of competition for Fantasy Flight Games tournaments, and all players, judges, and tournament organizers involved are held to the highest levels of conduct. Players are assumed to be familiar with the game’s rules, as well as the latest FAQ and tournament rules, and should expect all rules to be strictly enforced. Regional Championships, National Championships, and World Championships are premier events.

Regional Championship Prizes

A bye is not the only prize for the taking at Imperial Assault Skirmish Regional Championships. In addition to a poster and info sheet, each Regional Championship Expansion Kit comes with exclusive prizes for up to 64 players.

  • 1 Regional 2015 trophy
  • 1 card granting the winner a first-round bye at the country’s National Championship
