I had the absolute pleasure of participating in the Star Wars Legion Tournament today.
Thank you to LJ and everyone who poured their blood, sweat and tears into making LVO the Legion event of the year and hopefully the inspiration to all future tournaments.
Congrats to those who won an invite to High Command.
Congrats to John Griffin who came in first.
And congrats to David LeBlanc (who plays at my local store) who went into the final round and took eleventh.
Here’s some photos from of the gorgeous tables: Continue reading →

Going to the Las Vegas Open Legion Tournament (LVO)? Lj Peña recently posted the following on the LOV Facebook page:
We have one last CRITICAL update to share with you.
The Tournament Organizer and Marshall have decided to release the following Tournament Regulations Addendum. This addendum is designed to enhance the Legion Organized Play document, and explain the duties and responsibilities of judging during LVO. It will also cover penalties, and FAQ questions that have not been covered by the RRG or the Legion Rules Thread.
The document was built using the LVO weekend guidelines, so you’ll find it very close to the expectations of the other Vegas events. Please use this, in conjunction with the SW:Legion RRG, Rules Thread, and OP document to have a successful and enjoyable tournament on the 8th! As with our other major updates, we recommend you tag other LVO Legion players so they see this as well.
See you soon! #lvolegion”

The guys discuss whether the Specialists should be legal at LVO, how your friendly local game store can effect the Legion community, and John eulogizes an FFG favorite with his rendition of Sarah McLaughlin. Sad reacts only.

I’ve gotten several confirmations from gaming stores that Alliance Distribution has the Specialists expansions listed with a street date of January 24th.
This is the absolute last day for them to make the cut to be LVO legal.
So be sure to grab yours from your local gaming store and be ready to see them coming at you on the LVO tables in on February 8th!
(Now I just need to go plan my army of astromechs list!)

With the most recent rules update, several of the Battle Cards were errata’d, most famously Key Positions.
What’s a player to do now that their Battle Cards still tell them not to deploy their rapid reinforcements until the end of round 2?
