An Unexpected Pleasure

See the Prizes for the 2018 Star Wars™: Armada National Championships

"We shall double our efforts."
     –Moff Jerjerrod, Star Wars: Return of the Jedi

You'll need to put forth your best effort—perhaps even double your efforts—to claim victory at one of this year's Star Wars™: Armada National Championship tournaments.

Top-level events that celebrate all the very best players and strategies that Star Wars: Armada has to offer, the 2018 National Championships feature some of the game's most exciting prizes—including the chance to win seats at the next Star Wars: Armada World Championships for you and a friend!

Top 64

The Top 64 participants at each 2018 Star Wars: Armada National Championship receive an alternate art version of Moff Jerjerrod.

Illustrated by David Auden Nash and with a look of grim resolve on his face, this version of Moff Jerjerrod doesn't appear at all happy about being asked to double his efforts to ready the second Death Star ahead of Emperor Palpatine's visit… But as we all know, Jerjerrod and his crew managed to get the battle station armed and operational with sufficient time for the Emperor to lay his trap for the Rebellion.

You, too, can use Jerjerrod's talents to your advantage—dealing damage to your ships in order to turn them more sharply and lay some traps of your own.

Top 16

There are tremendous differences in the strengths of the galaxy's many starships. Still, despite all the firepower that a Star Destroyer can bring to bear against a fleet of Corellian corvettes or that a Mon Calamari cruiser can direct against an isolated Imperial Arquitens-class Light Cruiser, the greatest fleet battles of Star Wars have often turned upon the actions of a single fighter pilot.

To commemorate the impact and importance of skillful piloting in even the greatest of battles, the Top 16 participants at each 2018 Star Wars: Armada National Championship tournament are awarded a double-sided plastic squadron card. One side features the Rebellion's A-wing ace, Shara Bey, and the other features the fearsome Imperial pilot, Maarek Stele.

Top 8

The Top 8 participants at each 2018 Star Wars: Armada National Championship earn a set of custom acrylic range rulers.

Cut at each different speed and firing range, these rulers make it easy to line up your maneuvers and shots in even the most heated combat.

Top 4

No matter how much your fleet uses its starfighter squadrons, no matter how large an impact they may play upon your games—the crux of every Star Wars: Armada battle is its ship-to-ship combat. There is nothing more central to Armada than its capital ships.

That's why the Top 4 players at each 2018 Star Wars: Armada National Championship win a custom ship tray.

Decorated with the colors and symbol of the Rebel Alliance, this tray is comes with spaces to hold your ship card, defense tokens, command dials, and command tokens—holding everything neatly in order, even if your ship is battered, bruised, and ragged from combat!

Finalists

One of the greatest prizes any fleet admiral can hope to win is survival—and the chance to fight again. Make the finals of a 2018 Star Wars: Armada National Championship, and you'll earn this chance to continue fighting for your Empire or Rebellion.

The Top 2 players at each 2018 Star Wars: Armada National Championship earn a free seat at the next Armada World Championship!

National Champion

Win a 2018 Star Wars: Armada National Championship, and you'll have truly proven yourself one of the galaxy's greatest fleet admirals!

Of course, as one of the galaxy's greatest admirals, you'll need a worthy ship—like the Chimaera, Grand Admiral Thrawn's ship, which is featured on the 2018 Star Wars: Armada National Championship trophy.

Meanwhile, as you head to the next Star Wars: Armada World Championship, you'll need to stay focused on winning the war—not just the next battle. Accordingly, your National Championship will earn you a first round Prize Bye.

We Will Be Honored by Your Presence
