The following is our recommendation only, and is meant to supplement, not replace, the official Star Wars: Legion Tournament Regulations

Format

Armies will consist of 800 points or less and follow standard list-building procedures found in Star Wars: Legion official Rules Reference (https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/products/star-wars-legion/).

Players should submit their army composition, including all associated Battle Cards and Command Hand via Table Top TO before the start of the event. For Premiere events, this should be required a few days in advance so that the TO has adequate time to check the legality of lists.

Players Should Bring

  • Their army (to include minis and all cards used)
  • Three copies of their army composition (Two without Battle Cards or Command Hands for the player and opponent, and a third WITH Battle Cards and Command Hands for the Judge)
  • Order tokens for each unit
  • Command hand
  • Sufficient dice for attack and defense rolls
  • Movement and range tools

Legal Units

Rally Point Qualifiers are FORMAL events, so all product released before the day of the Tournament is legal for that event. Grand Championships and Continentals are PREMIER events, so product must be released 11 days before the day of the event to be used.

Round Recommendations

When deciding the length of your tournament, there are a few things to consider. If you have 16 players in your tournament, you have one of two options.

-Option A, you can host 3 rounds of swiss that leaves you with two undefeated players
-Option B, you can host 4 rounds of swiss that leaves you with a single undefeated player

-Option C, you can host 3 rounds of swiss and cut to the top two, allowing the other 14 players in your tournament to go home to their families

Your options are similar as you increase your tournament size. For 32 players:

-Option A, 4 rounds of swiss, two undefeated players (optional cut to top two)
-Option B, 5 rounds of swiss, one undefeated player

-Option C, 3 rounds of swiss, cut to the top four

For 64 players:

-Option A, 5 rounds of swiss, two undefeated players (optional cut to top two)
-Option B, 6 rounds of swiss, one undefeated player

-Option C, 4 rounds of swiss, cut to the top four

Unofficial Rules Addendum

The following is a link to the Rules Addendum which was used at the Las Vegas Open and AdeptiCon Legion tournaments. While you do not have to use this guide, it has been provided to the public as it covers several scenarios that the OP document does not. This includes conduct, game state, penalties, and more to help run a smooth event.

Final Note:

Should a tournament require more than 4 rounds, a second day is recommended with no more than 4 rounds in either day.
