Re: GENCON 2019 Official Events

Are we extending the time on the main event to make up for another game. I believe the army consists of 80 less points but that is not going to be enough to shorten the games to allow for a 6th game in the same time period. Also on the general wars, what are the army alliances. Idk if they changed from last year and a little clarification would help

It looks like for general wars this year, you can make your own alliance from any 2 pairings. At least that's how I read it.

On Gencon's website, the Main Event's duration is listed at 6 hours, so I assume it's from 3-9 this year rather than 3-8.

Games do not have to be shorter; allow 6 hours instead of 5.

The whole point of the new General Wars is that you basically get to pick your own alliance.

Re: GENCON 2019 Official Events

Official GenCon event listing for General Wars does not have specifics -- no point totals at all

And there’s no X-Wing on Thursday to conflict with it!

It is looking like it might be the best Scape tourney this year, all things considered.

Yeah - they changed the number of participants in the event and somehow overwrote the details. I'm working with them to get his resolved.

Re: GENCON 2019 Official Events

How about that new General Wars, huh? Doors are wide open for what you can bring; no more being able to say, “this is the best army for this general or specific pair of generals”.

Re: GENCON 2019 Official Events

A lot of interest in the Wise Men Tourney. I thought of the idea at last year's GenCon after slugging it out with Nick the Ant in a 2 hour championship round of Coalition Wars. I'm almost 3 times as old as Nick, and I was mentally exhausted. I started talking to some of the other wiser men, and realized there is a need for a more relaxed tournament. Hence, the first annual (hopefully) tournament.
I have to give credit where it is due -- the wise men mechanics of this tournament (the choices of re-rolls, or plus/minus to the d20) were Orc's excellent ideas.

Re: GENCON 2019 Official Events

I will try to provide what I can for folks for the C3G event.
I do not have all the figures but I can probably find a decent proxy for just about anything. Just PM me and we can work it out.
I will probably play myself if possible. Will be running my go to testing army of Frankenstein, Dragon Man and Wendigo. Hmmm, now I am considering a Dinosaur build, I guess that will depend on what I can finish by then.

I promise I will get them there on time this year as well.

I will have some prizes as well, including what will be recently released designs.
Eject! Eject!

Re: GENCON 2019 Official Events

The biggest main event change (besides getting rid of the 3-2 bring cheese hope to win tiebreakers which imo wasn't a big deal) is that now there are an even number of games with and against your army for the first time in RtW history. There's always been more with your own army. So I expect army builds will continue to get weaker. You still have to win games with your own army to have any chance at winning the event so builds shouldn't get to be problematically weak ever
