Prizes, Dates, and Locations for the Imperial Assault Prime Championships


“It's not wise to upset a Wookiee.”
   –Han Solo, Star Wars: A New Hope

Star Wars™: Imperial Assault players, prepare yourselves for the upcoming Prime Championships, where the very best Imperial, Rebel, and Mercenary armies will meet on the battlefield for a series of spectacular skirmishes! In this article, we're excited to share dates and locations, as well as the prizes for these rousing Star Wars™ events!

Previously known as Regional Championships, Prime Championships are high-level tournaments that draw in talented players from all over to compete. These events are a central part of the Organized Play path that leads the World Championship, offering an invitation to the one player who outsmarts the competition on the ground and claims the title of Prime Champion! Not only do these events serve as challenging conflicts where you can truly put your personalized army to the test, but they're also excellent opportunities to form new friendships in your area as you play Star Wars: Imperial Assault​ with other passionate fans!

Before you lock in your final roster and deploy your armies, make sure you first get the full briefing on the prizes available at these engaging events!​ Among these prizes, you'll find acrylic tokens, extended art cards that include errata, deckboxes, and of course, an invitation to the next World Championship! After the prize preview below, you will find a full list of dates and locations for this upcoming season of Prime Championships. 

Placement Prizes

At a Star Wars: Imperial Assault Prime Championship, each player in the Top 32 will receive an extended art version of the imposing Gamorrean Guard. Players who fight their way into the Top 8 will win a plastic version of Spectre Cell, with added errata. Then, those players who prove to have extraordinary abilities and make the Top 4 cut will receive a set of eight green and red activation tokens. ​Separately, the Top 4 Imperial players will receive an extended art version of The Grand Inquisitor, the Top 4 Mercenary players will earn Bossk and finally, the Top 4 Rebel players will win an extended art version of Leia Organa, with errata. 

Finalists and Champion

Both finalists of a Prime Championship will win an Imperial Assault trooper box, but only the Prime Champion, the one player who overwhelms the opposition at every turn, will win a medallion emblazoned with the damage symbol and an invitation to the next World Championship!
