My guess: @R˙chean gave The Main Event the boot so he can be The Champ in perpetuity.

Excited to see the map selection!

Re: Gen Con 2015 Events

I home one event besides the custom free-for-all allows V3V/SoV but I highly doubt it. Hopefully I can go this year, but doubt that about as much as I doubt the VC inclusion.

Finally get to meet the legend in person. Make sure to sign up for my event during Open Play! It's likely I'll be playing a lot of X-Wing this year (if I can get in, of course...)
