Online Con 2020

With Gencon cancelled for the year, we wanted to make sure there was still a big Heroscape tournament in August 2020 to keep the competitive scene going and give people a chance to roll some dice. So, without more introduction, we have Online Con 2020, July 31st through August 2nd. It's three days of all-online Heroscape tournaments: Friday, Saturday, Sunday. There will be two events each day, ending a bit early on Sunday. All of the games will happen over Discord voice chat on the Online Heroscape Tournament Discord Server. There will be a big voice chat where we roll out matchups and give tournament info, and then you'll go into 1 on 1 chatrooms to play your matches with your paired opponent.

We'll have a set of Online Con exclusive prize dice for every event winner, and prize dice for the top 4 for the Championship.

Here's the list of events:

July 27-July 30

Pod Draft
9pm Eastern, one game per day on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday night. Bring 2 "pods" between 225 and 325 points. Players draft pods, either theirs or their opponent's 1-2-1 style.

July 31

VC Bring 2
11am Eastern. Bring 2 450 point armies. Classic Heroscape with customs approved by VC allowed. Draft one of your own two armies or one of your opponents armies, and your opponent does the same.

General Wars
4pm Eastern. Bring a 500 point army where all cards are from the same Valkyrie General. Your army may not contain more than 200 points of the same common figure.

August 1

Online Con Championship
11am Eastern. Bring a 430 point army. Alternating Reverse the Whip. Round 1 you will play your own army against your opponents', Round 2 you will play your opponents' army against your own, Round 3 you will play your own army again, etc. Top 16 players will qualify for a single elimination Day 2 on Sunday morning.

Heroes Only
6pm Eastern. Bring a 600 point army. Your army may only contain Unique Heroes, Uncommon Heroes, and Common Heroes.

August 2

Rainbow War
12pm Eastern. Bring a 550 point army. Your army must contain at least 60 points from 5 different Valkyrie generals.

Make sure when you submit your armies that you read the full event descriptions in the Online Con thread. These descriptions are abbreviated.

We highly recommend if you're going to play in events you've used the online interface at least once before. There's a few ways to get some practice in. One nice way to learn is the Pod Draft event, happening the week of the tournament. This event is one game per night the Monday-Thursday before the weekend of Heroscape. Because there's only one a game a night, time limits will not be as hard of cutoffs, and you can learn the system for the more fast-paced games to come. You also can message me, or any of the other organizers (Dysole, dok, kevindola, superfrog, Sir Heroscape, Scaperedude) and we would be happy to give you a demonstration. Another option is to use the Online Heroscape Match Request Thread to set up a game or two and get the hang of the online ropes. Online Heroscape games are not complicated, but it's just a little different than in person Heroscape.
