Re: Gen Con 2019

Oh yea, signing up for set up crew, as always. And LoneWolf, are you making me a Judge with a badge? Or do I buy my badge?

Re: Gen Con 2019

That looks awesome! I'm not sure if I'll be able to attend this year or not, but there's another reason to go to the HeroScape area.

Re: Gen Con 2019



Well met!

In cluster or pod drafts, as long as the pods or clusters are balanced against each other (knowledge of metagame required), and in how they will synergize with other sets of pods or clusters, i.e., no Raelins, it does not matter what units you bring, nor does it really matter (IMHO) whether anyone knows what you will field in advance. It's all about how skillfully the players are able to use whatever units are in play. For that reason, I suggest such a draft format be considered for the GenCon 2019 Main Event.

Events for 2019 are already submitted to Gencon.

To be honest we have been very happy with the format of the Main event being Reverse the Whip. The winning armies are different every year and estimating the overall Meta is a big challenge when building your army.

I think we have had Dwarves, Goblins, & Marro Hounds as Main Event winners the last 3 years. That is a win!

We do have a draft event every year because we have seen good participation in it. As long as that event gets good numbers we will continue to run it.

Re: Gen Con 2019

For those selecting maps this year ( @lonewolf ?) I’d like to suggest the ARV’s Tournament Map Archive as a resource in selecting exciting, new, balanced maps that have been rigorously tested and “stamped” as tournament-worthy. If you don’t know already, the ARV is a group who’s purpose is (in part) to continue what the BoV started in providing the community with balanced tournament maps. We’ve got quite a few maps in our archive and would suggest you take a good look for adding some to the list for GenCon this year (I think people have played enough on Common Ground, and other favorites that tend to keep popping up in the pool...no offense).

The maps are largely chosen based on the limited materials we have at Gencon. Common Ground uses a single ROTV set and is used largely because of that. After searching through your maps, I don't see a map that uses a single ROTV set. Perhaps you could use that parameter for you next map building contest.
