In early 2020, the A Renewed Hope team came together with one goal in mind – keep Star Wars Destiny alive. The writing was on the wall that official production and support for Star Wars Destiny was in jeopardy, but we came together to keep the game and community we all love going strong.
There were, of course, monumental challenges in trying getting a project like this off the ground, and there have been roadblocks along the way. However, we all know there is no try – its do, or do not.
So how do we keep “doing?”
One of the most important things for any organization is consistency. Our players and supporters should know what to expect and when to expect it. With that in mind, going forward expect there will be far more regularly scheduled updates and community engagement from the team . We have brought on several new team members to help make this a reality, including those that we announced on our Live Stream! You can catch a link to the replay at the end of this article.
More Community Involvement
One of the greatest things about Star Wars Destiny has always been the community, and the way we keep community involvement going in a competitive game is to offer Organized Play Opportunities. For those of us who were able to join us for the Q&A session on our Twitch Page on September 19, 2021, you already know there are big plans on the horizon, including an In-Person World Championship event at Gencon in 2022! That’s a long way off though, so in the mean time we are excited to offer new weekly AND Monthly events:
Weekly Online Tournaments and Monthly Online Leagues
As many of you know, there have been several content creation teams that have offered regularly scheduled events over the course of the last year and a half or so. In an effort to encourage more concentrated participation and create better opportunities to play together with more people, several teams, including Destiny Jr., Echobase, Entourage Gaming, and On the Sensors, are coming together to host weekly Tabletop Simulator tournaments on Sundays! Starting Sunday, October 10th, 2021 these teams will come together under the A Renewed Hope umbrella to host weekly events at 3:00 PM US Eastern Time/2:00 PM US Central Time / 7:00 PM GMT. These weekly events will have a 5 dollar buy in and 100 percent of registration fees will go to cash payouts! They will be Swiss only events without a top cut, so its a great way to get a few games in on a Sunday afternoon (or evening for our European friends!) and walk away with bragging rights and prizes.
More information will be forthcoming on how registration fees will be collected and processed, as well as the sign up process for the weekly events.
Additionally, the long-successful Artificery League, which has for many people been THE place to get games in with some of the best players in the world, will also be coming into the A Renewed Hope fold. The A Renewed Hope League will adopt the format of the Artificery League, which features a monthly roster of participaints in which you schedule games and opponents on a schedule that works for you and get your games in. At the end of the month, the top players will be placed into a top cut which is scheduled in a similar manner. Entry into these leagues will be 10 dollars and all fees will go toward prize support. The first A Renewed Hope League will begin October 1, 2021. Stay tuned to this website for more information on how to register!
Special Online Event – September 26, 2021
But wait, there’s more! This coming Sunday, September 26, 2021, A Renewed Hope will be offering a Tabletop Simulator Tournament, complete with cash and other prizes, and it will have FREE ENTRY. This is a great way to not only get a free preview of of what our weekly events will look like, but also gives you a great opportunity to get primed and ready for the Tatooine Galactic Open taking place the following weekend!
Want to register? Since its free, just submit a registration request on the event page!
Tatooine Galactic Open
Finally, remember that on Saturday, October 2, 2021 and Sunday, October 3, 2021, we will be hosting The Tatooine Galactic Open. There will be three separate heats in different time slots, so sign up for any of them or all of them!
