While vaccines are starting to get into the population, there's still a very real threat of getting COVID-19 and becoming very, very sick. As such, Atomic Mass Games has decided to postpone all major Star Wars-related Organized Play events until 2022, when this whole situation will be under much better control (we all hope).
From the article:
Hello, Star Wars™ Miniatures players.
Last year was…unusual, to say the least. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected everyone’s lives, and unfortunately we are not out of the woods just yet. It’s going to take a bit more time and a lot more patience before we get through this episode of history, which brings us to our announcement today.
We at Atomic Mass Games believe that our first priority is the health and safety of our staff and community. As the vaccine is being distributed, we wish to remain extra cautious, and so we have decided to delay all Star Wars Miniatures World Championships until 2022.
Now, we understand that this may be disappointing for those of you who were looking forward to flexing your competitive muscles this year. Fortunately, while the World Championships are delayed, we do still plan to have Organized Play take place this year.
