Wild Card Tournament December 5th
All right, after a bit of discussion we've decided to go with Saturday, December 5th for the Wild Card Tournament. Unfortunately, Peter C. had to drop out of the League Championships due to work obligations, so here's where we stand now:
Iskazri, Faizal, and Joe are automatically in the finals, which will be held Saturday, December 12th at Battlefront. More details on that one coming soon.
In the meantime, a conditional invitation is extended to the following players, all of whom played at least the league minimum of six games:
I say "conditional", because to be eligible to compete in the Wild Card Tournament for the Marksman's Honour and a spot in the League Championships, your army MUST be fully painted AND based. Based means the bases must be painted and flocked at a minimum. Painting the bases green does not qualify for this, unless you glue flock on top (for instance). painted means all of the models show "painting effort" and have at least three colors. If you have any doubts whatsoever as to what "fully painted" or "based" mean, I strongly urge you to email me for clarification or post your question in this thread. If you show up with an army that does not meet these requirements, you will not be permitted to play in the tournament.
Scoring in the Wild Card Tournament is simple. You all will play in three rounds, using the standard Legio Swiss format. If we have an odd number of players, one randomly determined player in Round 1 will get a bye (worth 15 points). The bye for rounds 2 and 3 will be given to the player with the lowest overall score at that point in the tournament.
No appearance or sportsmanship scores will be taken for these matches. Once the tournament is over, you'll have scores for three games. These scores will be added together, and then we'll add your final regular season league average in Sportsmanship and Appearance to that for your total score. Highest score wins the tournament!
So, that's it folks. Please RSVP your attendance, or lack thereof. If you have any questions, post them up here or drop me an email.
Until then, good luck!
