We are hosting the Operation Gathering Forces Star Wars Legion event on May 19th! It will be played in 4 swiss rounds as an Escalation Event! An Escalation Event involves players playing 1v1 and requires players to add to their army after each round of the event. Players must include all units from the previous round in their army when modifying it for future rounds. However, they may add new units and upgrade cards, remove existing upgrade cards, and swap in new command cards for old ones—as long as the player’s new command hand follows all rules for building a command hand.

Tracking Achievements

Over the course of your Operation Gathering Forces event players will earn various achievements.
These achievements will help determine who receives prizes at the end of the Operation Gathering
Forces event.

Games Played: When a player finishes a game against one of their assigned opponents, have us check off the left-most box under “Games Played” next to your name.

Decorated Painter: After your Operation Gathering Forces event begins, players may show the organizer a newly painted miniature that is part of their army. If a player does, check off the “Decorated Painter” box next to your name.

Operation Achievement: At the beginning of each game, each player secretly chooses one of their units. If a player defeats their opponent’s chosen unit during the game, the player receives the operation achievement for that round. Report to us when this happens, and have us check off the left-most box under “Operation Achievement” next to your name that does not already have a check.

Major Achievement: If a player earns seven or more Victory Points from objectives over the course of their games, have us check the “Major Achievement” box next to your name.

There will also be an award given out to the Bested Painted Commander.
