2019 Star Wars: Armada Prime Championships

Prizes, Dates, and Locations for the Armada Prime Championships


“Alert all commands. Deploy the fleet.”
   –Admiral Piett, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back

Attention! Attention! A swarm of squadrons and capital ships have begun to converge in the heart of the galaxy! Fleet admirals, assemble your squadrons now and have your ships plan a course for the Star Wars™​: Armada Prime Championships, where these epic battles will take place between the Galactic Empire and the Rebel Alliance. As you make your final preparations for the assault, get the full report on the prizes in contention as well as the dates and locations for these exciting events!

Previously known as Regional Championships, Prime Championships are high-level tournaments that draw in talented players from all over to compete. These events are a central part of the Organized Play path that leads the World Championship at AdeptiCon, offering a World Championship invitation to the one admiral who overcomes all odds and claims the distinguished title of Prime Champion. While these events are excellent opportunities to test the capabilities of your fleet while making new friends, don't let down your guard while facing your fellow rivals amongst the stars—the galaxy is at stake, as are a host of exclusive prizes.

By expertly fulfilling your duty as an admiral, you can obtain the rewards below, including extended art cards, tokens, range rulers, and of course, an invitation to the Star Wars: Armada World Championship! After the prize preview below, you will find a list of dates and locations for this upcoming season of Prime Championships.

Top 32 and Top 16

During a Star Wars: Armada Prime Championship, the Top 32 players will an extended art version of the Quasar Fire I-class Cruiser-Carrier, as well as the Hammerhead Torpedo Corvette, two ships outfitted for a variety of challenging engagements. The Top 16 players will also receive a set of three objective cards, evoking the iconic title crawl of the Skywalker saga.

Top 8 and Top 4

Players who can prove themselves and make it into the Top 8 will receive a plastic card of the durable flotilla freighters: the Gozanti-class Carriers. Those who are able to secure one more win and advance to the Top 4 cut will be rewarded with a number of prizes that include sets of red and white tokens (five of each type of token per player) and similarly styled ship and squadron range rulers. The Top 4 Rebel Alliance players and the Top 4 Galactic Empire players will also receive a double-sided alternate art card of the X-Wing Squadron card and TIE Fighter squadron.


The sole player who secures their victory at a Prime Championship will be handsomely rewarded for their heroic efforts. In addition to the rewards previewed above, the Prime Champion will also win a one-of-a-kind damage deck, a metal coin adorned with the navigate symbol, and of course, an invitation to the next Star Wars: Armada World Championship!
