Aces High Pods

Aces high pods use the Extended or Hyperspace game modes. Up to eight players can sign up for an Aces High pod and play two rounds of the Aces High scenario from the Epic Battles Multiplayer Expansion, with some minor adjustments. Players will play for 60 minutes and score match points according to their placement at their table (see below). The first round will be randomly paired with four players to a table. In the second round, the 1st and 2nd place players from each table will face each other, and the 3rd and 4th place players from each table will face each other. Once the second round is complete, players will receive prize tickets based on their standing within the pod. In order to play, each player will need to bring two Obstacles, one Hyperspace Marker, and one ship with a squad limit of 80 points,

Match Points

1st place: 8 points

2nd place: 6 points

3rd place: 4 points

4th place: 2 points

In the event of a tie, players add up the potential points for placements and divide them by the number of tied players.

Example: There is a two-way tie for a second place. The players add up the potential scores (6 points and 4 points for 2nd and 3rd place) for a total of 10 points, divided by the number of tied players (which is two). The two players would each receive 5 points.
