Re: Louisville, KY Events: GenCon Main Event Practice 7/27

I was also thinking maybe about re-pooling every round, except you get to keep 1 card in your army each round (keep 1 card after round 1, 2 cards after round 2, etc).

Re: Louisville, KY Events: GenCon Main Event Practice 7/27

That makes it so Obsidian Guards and Dzu-Teh and other terrain dependent figured can get redrafted on the map where they shine. That’s fine in my book, just might add time between rounds. Plus make sure to rearrange drafting order between rounds so same people don’t get first pick and others get last. Maybe reverse order every other round or even make reverse of win order so last place gets first draft pick, like NBA/NFL (lottery optional)

Re: Louisville, KY Events: GenCon Main Event Practice 7/27

Yeah if we did a giant pool, it would definitely be lowest rank picks first. But I think all that drafting might take too long. I like this, actually:


510 points, 24 figures. VC yes, Marvel no (although once you read the format it would be pretty foolish to bring Marvel anyway).



Each player brings exactly 5 cards. Duplicate Commons are allowed (3x Knights counts as 3x cards) as long as there are at least two different cards among the 5. Each round, opponents pool cards and roll off. High roll chooses who drafts first, in a snake format (1-2-2-2-2-1). After the round, each player chooses one card to keep in their army for the rest of the day. 4 rounds.


So the day will look like this:


Round 1: 10 card pools, 1-2-2-2-2-1 draft. After match keep 1.
Round 2: 1 card in each army, 8 card pools, 1-2-2-2-1 draft. After match keep another 1.
Round 3: 2 cards in each army, 6 card pools, 1-2-2-1 draft. After match keep another 1.
Round 4: 3 cards in each army, 4 card pools, 1-2-1 draft.

Re: Louisville, KY Events: Draft Format 8/24

Sounds good except I would up it to 6 cards and enforce you bring AT least 510 points in those 6 cards, as otherwise your cards must average 100 points each and most people are not going to bring low cost heroes/squads so many games at least one person would end up short on points. If you brought 3 * 70 point squads, that would leave you 300 points and I think 3 cards is better than 2, but maybe your intent is to force people to bring heavy hitters.

Personally I would make it 7 cards and and minimum of 600 points in your pool just give more leeway, but up to you.

Re: Louisville, KY Events: Draft Format 8/24

With more cards I would want to go more rounds, but we don't have the attendance for that. So I think we can just set min/max point totals for the cards everyone brings, but you can still end up with above/below that number in your army depending on how the drafts go (and with that in mind I'd think balancing your cards reasonably well against each other would be a good idea).



Also: @Viideosayg , @Deroche , I need my Guilty/Darrak back, please.

Re: Louisville, KY Events: Draft Format 8/24

Drafting was a refreshing change of pace, I look forward to that format again.

Same!

Speaking of formats, any suggestions for 9/28? We could try a draft format again, but I'll be going to the Lou City soccer game that night and might have to duck out earlier than usual. Also there are rumors of a @MegaSilver appearance that day...

Re: Louisville, KY Events: Suggest-a-Format 9/28

I was thinking maybe just keep it simple every other month and pick an unused point total?

That has always worked for me. Any particular point total? I'm going to throw out 465 as a random number.

In other news, @Viideosayg has talked to TTD about having us on the 28th. We'll meet there this month and see how it goes, then we can decide if we want to stick to BGM or move to TTD.
