VT Tournament in November?

The First Congregational Church from last time is available Saturday, November 13th and will likely be the date for this event. For now, please vote on the format you'd like most.

Re: VT Tournament in November?

I voted drafting, but I'm about equally keen on Drafting and General Wars and not keen at all on Team.

Re: VT Tournament in November?

I definitely still interested in a team event, but doing a draft trumps it for me (if I can make it that is). My only concern is time. If 20+ show-up, that's a lot of time spent before any games start.

I think "drafting" refers to something like this format proposed by Dok. You and your opponent draft for each game, it's not everyone drafting an army for the day.

Yes, I was thinking about using that with very slight modifications (like instead of "You pooled in 3x 4th and I pooled in 2x, it's my pick I'll take 5x", I would make it 1 squad at a time) if we do drafting. I had no intention at all about drafting once, my original plan for drafting is to draft before each game.

Re: VT Tournament in November?

I saw that format after you bumped the thread ScapeMage, I like it a lot. I think I would definitely lean towards brining underused (maybe even weak) units. Should make for some fun games.

I think I like this variant too, with the extra condition that when someone drafts a common card the opposing player cannot draft that unit until the first player drafts a different unit.

So, in your example, if the first player took 10th x1, then the second player could not pick the 10th until the first player has picked something other than the 10th.

Wouldn't that simply allow one person to draft every available squad of that unit (providing they picked them all consecutively)?

Don't think of it as being outnumbered. Think of it as having a wide shot selection!

Yes, but while one player is acquiring those 10th Foot x5 cards the other player will have five picks to counterdraft against it rather than just one.

I'm liking that idea aswell. And I agree with Nyys, I do think that less common units will be drafted.

As a side note, if we do drafting, I think Raelin and Q9 should be banned from the draft pools, but not rats as you can only pick 1 squad per turn.
