Event Rules

Event Arbiters

The event organiser will be the lead arbiter for the event. Arbiters are there to assist players in situations where players are unsure as to a rules interaction. There is nothing wrong with calling an arbiter to your table to make a ruling. Where there is a dispute, it is encouraged that an arbiter be involved to resolve the dispute. An arbiter’s decision will be final, even if it is later found to be incorrect.

More information about arbiters is available in the Premiere Showdown Event rules, found here.


The use of painted models is not required for the event. However, painting is highly encouraged as painted models not only look great, but there will also be painting prizes!


Tournament Software & List Submission

ArcPoint will be using Longshanks to run the event pairings and record results. Players will be required to submit their Premiere Strike Teams to Longshanks (here) at least 24 hours prior to the start of ArcFest (i.e., no later than 9am on Friday the 26th of April).

Please remember to also select the mission pack that you intend to use for the entirety of ArcPoint.

Please enter SPT codes for your Premiere Strike Team. Most team-builders of choice have the capacity to export SPT codes, such as Point Break and Hunker Strike. Exported SPT codes can be directly pasted into Longshanks.


Allowed Products & Rules

ArcPoint will allow the use of all Star Wars Shatterpoint products available and fully released as of the 25th of April 2024. The rules for conversions etc. are available in the Premiere Showdown Event rules (here). As this is an Atomic Mass Games sponsored event, proxied models will generally not be allowed.

ArcPoint will use any Star Wars Shatterpoint documents and Rules Forum Rulings effective as of the 25th of April 2024. General Star Wars Shatterpoint rules documents can be found here, whilst the Rules Forums Rulings website can be found here.

A Note on Round Timings

As per the Premiere Showdown Event rules, all game rounds will be 120min + a variable extra amount of time. Mission Critical will be in effect after 90min for all rounds. Rounds will start a minimum of 10min after each round is drawn. Each player will have a maximum of 10min after time is up to complete their turn and submit scores. If a player turn has not been finished more than 10min after the round time has been reached, an arbiter will instruct you on calculating the final scores.

Please consider your opponent when playing your turns. Try to make decisions within a reasonable timeframe as time is shared. If your opponent is taking too long on their turn, feel free to call an arbiter.
