@JSChild... are you saying there is a possibility of a VW being a prize at a future tournament???

EDIT: I just looked at Grishnack's thread on lava creation and it is awesome!
For the April one for sure - It's surprisingly easy - however, there will be no Obsidian Guards for it, it'll just be the terrain.

Do you want me to do Fire Isle or the other one?

Now through May 28th, the Louisville region is in desperate need of platelets - call the Red Cross if you are interested in donating!

Re: Louisville Monthly Tournament - March 5th!

@Jschild...

Yep.. go with Fire Isles... Moltenclaw needs a helping hand... er claw.

Plus I want to see this custom lava in person!

Edit: I just looked at Sea Arch... looks good, and I will bring it!

Can someone explain to me why we need more maps than players to prevent too much duplication in a swiss tournament? Is there a size at which the number of maps can be equal to the need... without a single duplicate map needing to be played? For example... with 20 players... would 10 maps be sufficient to not have anyone play a match on the same map? Anybody handy enough with numbers to help me puzzle this out???

Re: Louisville Monthly Tournament - March 5th!

Sure, 10 maps means you won't repeat seeing a map...but it also means not everyone will have played on the same map an equal number of times either. That may or may not be an issue in your mind whether or not you're concerned about the concept of having everyone face equally the same hurdles and challenges unique to each map. Short of using nothing but BoV maps, you start to possibly creep even more into unbalance issues, with some maps favoring certain armies over others. Obviously that's going to happen anyway because that's part of the game design and the army strategies that evolve around it, but I would think it gets perpetuated even more when some armies never get to be played on half the maps being used at all.

Then again, the point I'm making above might be moot if our local community of players are somewhat limited in the kinds of maps they can bring in the first place.

Ideally, shouldn't it just be the number of matches played equals the number of distinct maps? So if we're having a five match tourney, we merely need to have whatever multiple of five is necessary to allow for the anticipated number of players that show up. In this example, assuming we get 20 participants, we'd need two of each of the five map types brought to the table for 10 maps total. The challenge with this, then, is picking maps that can be duplicated sufficiently not only because we're trying to accomodate all of our players, but because we know whether or not we have the required terrain tiles necessary to make enough maps in the first place.

Or am way off base here?

Edit: after re-reading this, I didn't make clear enough in the first paragraph that I was talking about ten distinct maps total as opposed to my last paragraph, which was ten maps arrived at by 5x2.

Braxas

This army is kind of interesting. In the expected match vs Nilfheim, Raelin, and GSW's you can ignore their boosted Warriors which is pretty nice.

Re: Louisville Monthly Tournament - March 5th!

I'm not math-y enough to figure it out, but I think just 1-2 extra maps should handle it.

And I will be bringing extra armies - 1 for each dragon... and I have no idea which one I'll be using.

Re: Louisville Monthly Tournament - March 5th!

Well, here is the map I'm bringing, hoping to get a version of it into BOV someday:

Hail and Brimstone Morazz Requires 1 SotM, 1 TT, 2 VW

Re: Louisville Monthly Tournament - March 5th!

If my Auggie's order arrives on time, I'll have Lava (the same amount of terrain that came in the set) for a prize - if not, just picked up the Marvel set for $5 bucks, but I'm being selfish and keeping the terrain (almost half of it is going towards making another Lava set), but I'll be offering all the Marvel Heroes as a prize.

And Marcus - yell at me Friday night or early Saturday morning so I can bring you your Cap and Raelin finally. Sorry.

Re: Louisville Monthly Tournament - March 5th!

Greetings all!

We have an estimate of 20 attendees at the moment (due to a +2 that I am hesitant to add to my already large + list)

I have confirmations on only 4 maps! I can at best pull an extra two out of my back pocket, but I know we need at least 6 more!!!

This is going to be epic!

Re: Louisville Monthly Tournament - March 5th!

I can possibly bring another. If we don't have any by Sat. I'll look up a simple 1 RotV map to bring & build.

Let me go through my terrain...I can probably bring enough for three of the maps -- maybe four? -- as long as it doesn't involve tundra or jungle (I have one lava set).
