WMH team tournament - Best of Gauteng - 4/11/2017 - JHB

Postby The italian job » Tue Sep 12, 2017 2:40 pm

Do you think you and your buddies are the best warmachine players around?

Then come play in Best of Gauteng Team Tournament!

When: 4/11/2017

Where: Warzone gaming club (Jeppe Quondam bowling club https://www.google.co.za/maps/place/Jep ... 28.1388786 )

How: standard steamroller rules with team pairing (see FAQs) 75 points.

Entry: 50 Zar per person (150 per team).

Price support: trophies yes, we will look into getting something else or sponsorship if available. We will mostly play for the glory and the title. All the fees will be devolved in prizes after deducting the cost of the trophies.

Confirmation/prebooking is vital. We need at least 4 teams to ensure 3 games in a round robin tournament, for a total of 12 players. Less than that and we will need to cancel.
If we do not reach the number before the 27 October, the tournament will be unfortunately cancelled.

FAQ:

Q:What do I need to do if I want to play?
A:You need to have any other 2 buddies able to play in your team each one fielding a 75 point list. Second list optional.

Q:Do we need to have all different factions?
A: No, you can have the same factions and even play the same lists (even if isn't exactly suggested due to pairing strategy).

Q:How do the pairing works?
A: Is not difficult but bear with me. Every team choose the first player to present in secret. The name / list / avatar of the player is put face down on the table. Once both teams have selected their first player, they're revealed. Once the player is revealed, both teams choose a opponent for the first player, in secret. The name / list / avatar of the opponent is put face down on the table. Opponents are then revealed. The 2 remaining player end up playing against each other.

Q: What do I need to do to book?
A: Write in this forum, send me a PM or book yourself in the Warmachine whatsapp group (if you're in).

Q: If I bring two lists, should I play one of the lists at least once?
A: No, the baseline format do not enforce playing your second list. You can bring an optional second list and not play it at all should the opportunity not arise.

Q: Should I skew my lists?
A: As hard as you can

Q: Is going to be fun?
A: Lot of fun.

Count in Rorrak, Robert and Myself as a team (we'll come up with a catchier name soon)

Make it happen. Speak to 3+ guys or maybe Ryan and Brad from D20.

I think I'm looking at this team:

Me
Pierre
Pedro

Me and Pierre had a quite illuminating game yesterday were we looked at a lot of stuff (both in terms on gameplay and list building) and we come up with some really nice ideas.

We are hyped.

That's what it is all about. Play, discuss and learn.
They're something terribly satisfying about personally murdering the enemy wizard-general. Wracking them is cathartic, like squeezing a great big stress ball, except you're strapping it to a massive metal religious icon and it's screaming. -cryptomancer

Hi,
Due to not having reached the minimum numbers of teams, I'm cancelling the tournament.

It's unfortunate but we need to accept the game is not currently in a good space and such kind of iniatives aren't really adapt to the current situation.

We tried and the regular players did pull in, but the regular players aren't enough.
