A 2014 World Championship Weekend Update

Information for Those Attending or Viewing the Events

The 2014 World Championship Weekend is almost here, and it is set to smash old attendance records, with more players preregistered this year than the total number of attendees last year. This year will be an event to remember, filled with passionate players, hard-fought games, laughter, and exciting and exclusive prizes. In addition, representatives from Gen Con will be attending the event and handing out additional giveaways. It all starts Wednesday night with an LCG® State of the Union address.

Live Coverage

The official Fantasy Flight Games Twitch stream will be active throughout the event, covering games in each of our Championships all day, every day. This year, FFG is taking another large step toward providing fans at home the best event coverage possible; we will have live commentating for every match we show on camera! During breaks between matches, we will have exciting announcements, interviews, and more.

Each day, viewers can tune into the FFG Twitch channel to see live streaming of their favorite games, including the Finals for every Championship. Almost all matches will be shown in their entirety, allowing viewers to see how a game plays out from start to finish. The crew from Team Covenant will also be joining FFG staff for commentating, interviews, and more. In particular, viewers will want to make sure to tune in Thursday at 12:45pm and 17:30pm CST (Central Standard Time) for important discussions.

Event and Tournament Registration

Preregistration for World Championship Weekend has closed. Even though space is limited, players can still register onsite starting on Wednesday, Nov. 5th, at 4 pm CST (Central Standard Time). The cost to register onsite is $50. Due to the high volume of players who have preregistered, if the number of players registering onsite would push registration beyond what our fire code allows, we may have to turn away players.

All players must register for the tournaments they are participating in an hour before it starts. Tournament registration closes fifteen minutes before each tournament starts. Receiving a badge onsite or answering the survey sent to those who preregistered does not automatically enter you into a tournament. X-Wing™ players who have reserved a spot in one of the X-Wing World Championship Flights must still register for the tournament and bring two squad lists.

Side Events

Due to the unprecedented number of players attending World Championship Weekend, we will be holding some side events on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday in an auxiliary space one block away from the Fantasy Flight Games Center. This space is an easy 5-10 minute walk from the Games Center, and we will have a shuttle van running between the two locations all three days. All World Championships will remain in the Games Center.

The auxiliary space is located at 1975 Oakcrest Ave, Roseville, MN 55113

The side event schedule has been updated to represent which games will be located in the auxiliary space.

An Event to Remember

The 2014 World Championship Weekend will be an event to remember. With a record-setting number of players set to attend, countless events, streaming live coverage with commentators, and no end of prizes, attendees and viewers alike are sure to have a blast.

Don’t forget! For those attending, it all kicks off the night of Wednesday, Nov. 5th, with the LCG State of the Union address. For those watching, streaming begins bright and early Thursday, Nov. 6th, with matches of X-Wing Flight One.
