Grab your upgrades for the 2018 Coruscant Invitational.

The release of X-Wing™ Second Edition is rapidly approaching. We’re now just under a month from the game’s September 13 release date, and we’re racing toward its first major event at the 2018 Coruscant Invitational.

The climactic conclusion to the 2018 System Open Series, the Coruscant Invitational will feature talented aces from across the globe. These players will have all earned their invitations thanks to their success with the game’s first edition, and they will come ready to demonstrate their mastery of the game’s second edition—including its renewed focus on skillful maneuvering, strategic use of actions, and clever squad building. In fact, this focus on clever squad building takes on a special role at the 2018 Coruscant Invitational. Participants will all face a unique squad building challenge—how best to incorporate one mandatory, faction-specific upgrade. Players will be able to draw upon all the second edition components in the Core SetConversion Kits, and Wave I expansions, and each list must include at least one copy of its “essential” upgrade.

Over the past few weeks, we reviewed the different faction-specific upgrades included in the Conversion Kits for the Rebel Alliance, Galactic Empire, and Scum and Villainy. You cast your votes for each faction’s essential upgrade—the upgrade that would appear at least once in each squadron for that faction—and now the stage is set.

  • Rebel Alliance — Leia Organa
  • Galactic Empire — Ruthless
  • Scum and Villainy — Boba Fett (crew)

Notably, for the 2018 Coruscant Invitational, all copies of these upgrades will cost 0 squad points!
