Welcome to the Ptl open

The Prototype Toronto League is throwing an X-Wing party! Join us for the Third PTL Open, held on November 23-24, 2019 at the Legion (Branch 22) in Toronto, near Woodbine and Danforth.

The Prototype Toronto League is an X-wing league open to all players of any skill level. We focus on friendly, community-driven fun while playing our favourite game! Our mission, as always with X-Wing, is to “Fly Casual” and have a good time. We hope you will join us in October!

This weekend-long X-Wing convention features a unique main tournament, fun and friendly side events, and cool prizes for everyone! 

Registration

A weekend pass is only $45! You can purchase your pass (as well as food and swag) at our online store.

Buy your ticket early (before October 20, 2019) and receive some unique PTL Tokens.

Main Event

The PTL Open X-wing main event consists of six rounds of Swiss pairings followed by top 8 single-elimination rounds, following Standard X-Wing Extended rules and FFG tournament regulations .

However! This is a Prototype Toronto League event, and In PTL's meta-bending fashion, players will have the option to bring three different lists to play throughout the Swiss rounds, choosing which list to fly each round. The only list restriction is that you cannot use the same unique pilot more than once between your lists.

Using all three lists will earn you an extra match point in addition to your wins! Using each list twice will earn you a set of three PTL force tokens, regardless of Swiss placement.

The PTL Open 2018 is sponsored by Face to Face Games Toronto, who will be providing affordable meals, and VTTV Live, who will be recording and streaming the event all weekend.

Side Events

Both nights of the convention will feature side events, including Team Epic and Free-for-all formats using the new Environment rules on the first day! On the second day there will be two rounds of individual epic matches for those who do not make the main event’s top cut. There will be special prizes for the individual epic matches! All X-Wing side events are open to anyone with a main event ticket. Further details about the Epic formats and side events will be revealed closer to the event.

On Day 1 (Saturday, Nov. 23rd) the PTL Open will feature an Armada Taskforce Tournament, using the rules below.

  • 200-point fleet maximum

  • 100 points squadron maximum in fleet

  • Commanders optional

  • 3'x3' play area

  • No objectives. The second player gets two objective tokens. After fleets have been deployed, the second player places one in the first player's deployment area, and the other in their own deployment area. When a ship reveals a command dial, if it is at distance 1 of an objective token in their opponent's deployment area, they remove it from the board and gain a victory token worth 50 points at the end of the game.

Registration for the PTL Open includes participation in the X-Wing side events, as well as the Armada events. If players wish to only attend the Armada events (and not the main X-Wing tournament), they can purchase a special discounted ticket at the online store.
