Central IL NHSD Tournament Official Thread

Central IL NHSD "D-List" Tournament

Cost: $4 (to cover facility charge and some prizes)
Date/Time: October 19th, 12 - 4:30 PM
Tournament Organization: Swiss Style Tournament, DCI, 540 point armies, Only official Heroscape units (no marvel or customs) All Armies must include one army card from the D+, D, D-, or F categories based on Spider Poison's Power Rankings: http://www.heroscapers.com/community...ead.php?t=6171

Mahomet Area Community Center in Mahomet IL is a great place for this event. It has plenty of free parking, Free Wi-Fi access, tables and chairs for approximately 30-40 people. Mahomet is about 10 min West of Champaign-Urbana and Route 47 and Route 150 literally pass right through the town. It has a decent number of good places to eat, including two pizza places, a McDonalds, An Arby's, Subway, and a fantastic Mexican Restauraunt called Los Zarappas. It also has two very delicious Chinese Restaurants.

The Tourney will be 12-4:30 on October 19th. You could come into town early to eat. Food is welcome in the Community Center as well, but nothing will be served. Bring your own drinks (no alcohol permitted -- hey, it's a Sunday!). I will need a small entrance fee to cover the overhead on the building. $4 per person should allow me extra funds to buy some additional prizes. I will be offering at least one of my own Skahens.

I've gotten some feedback on the specifics of the tourney. I'm liking 540 points. I would like to allow Marvel Figs, but I've gotten mixed reactions. Let me know what you think! I would like to add something to make it different and encourage a greater variety of units -- perhaps something like every army needs to include something off Spider Poison's Ratings list with a D+ or lower. Please give some input here or PM me. I plan on using some of the maps from GenCon '08, but I will need a volunteer or two to come a little ealry to set up boards. I can only set up 3-4 of my own. We'll need 6-8 total. Thanks, I hope this works for everyone. Let me know here if you have any change in plans or if you have gotten more players.
Please avoid mixing Marvel with core Heroscape. The official tourney rules should be released soon and the mixing of the two will not be part of the initial sanctioned line-up.

Re: Central IL NHSD Tournament Official Thread

Everything sounds great so far! Keep up the good work.

As far as the Marvel controversy (and I am a little biased), my vote stands with allowing it until the games are officially separated. In all reality, I doubt that many people will have success with Marvel anyway or even choose an army including Marvel characters. Just because it forces a different style of play from the "norm" it not a reason to exclude them. Either way I am happy to be able to play in a tourny.

Marvel kills the synergy of classic, with the one exception of Captain America. Besides it's National Heroscape Day not National Marvel/Heroscape Day

Dilemma solved! Marvel is out.

And by the way, precise directions will eventually be PM'd to all of those who have already agreed to attend. Just give me some more time.

Re: Central IL NHSD Tournament Official Thread

Although I like Marvel (and wish there were more of them), it probably would be best to leave them out of NHSD tournies. Regarding maps - I have 3 MS I can build from if you need.
I like the idea of a quirk in every army. Where do I find that grading list again?

Other quirks:
each army must include :
one winged non-dragon/
one dragon/
one figure from each general (- Mr. WooHoo)/
one figure from each grade level (ABCD&F)/
all large or huge figures/

Your ideas are cool. I was thinking of having at least one unit in each army from the D+, D, D-, or F list just to force experienced players to get more creative and to encourage units typically not seen in tournaments. If experienced players are forced to build their army around Dund or Acolahr, I think it would make the tournament interesting. I don't want to exclude players without a large variety of figures though, so I'm not sure its the best idea. I'm looking for input.

P.S. I really like the one from each Grade level idea, but that's a bit restrictive. It sure would make the army choices unusual, though.

I agree with you 100% on the way Marvel fits into the game. I know there are a few quirks, but in my experience, all Marvel armies do not stand up to all HS armies, and mixing the two just makes the game more interesting; however, if GB says "NO" because the tournament rules will not include Marvel, then I'm cutting it out. I want the tournament to be as official as possible.

I didn't mean to build an army with just 5 heroes/squads, but rather have your 540 point army but each grade level must be represented. Minus the "plus and minus" grades - just straight A,B,C,D & F.

Re: Central IL NHSD Tournament Official Thread

Or combine the D & F grade into one since there are so few.

Thanks for at least listening to my ideas. I understand the desire to stay within the official bounds.

I do like the "D" or "F" class idea. It will certainly shake things up and help us noobs to not get destroyed so easily. I say go for it!
