TOURNAMENT FORMAT

FORMAT OVERVIEW: This year we will be trying a new tournament format called “Reinforcements.” Each player will build their own army but that army will be divided into two categories: (1) Core Army and (2) Reinforcements.

The goals of this format are many, but the key angles are (a) diversity in the units that are played in a tournament setting, (b) creative selection of Reinforcements from map to map, and (c) for those of that don’t want to play the same army all day – here’s a new option.

CORE ARMY:
The Core Army will be played in every match of the tournament, and must range from 240 to 350 points. For building their Core Army, players may select units from any official Heroscape set (except for Marvel) or official promotion (including Samuel Brown). Once the Core Army is chosen and registered it cannot be altered during the tournament

REINFORCEMENTS:
The second category, Reinforcements, is a pool of units that the player will use to supplement his Army. These units will come from the approved list of Reinforcements below. Units chosen for this list are from Power Rankings B and lower, along with other units that are often considered ‘filler’ for any army. The total number of points for the pool of Reinforcements equals 800 minus the Core Army total.

Example: If a player has a 350-point Core Army, then they can have a total of 450-points in Reinforcements. Of those 450-points, only 150-points can be select for the match.


Before each match, players will chose units from their Reinforcement list to add to their Core Army to create an army of up to 500-points. With this option, players can effectively play a different army in each round of the tournament or adjust their army to match the terrain.

If a player wants to have multiples of a unit (like a Common Hero, Common Squad or Uncommon Heroes), those multiple units count against their Reinforcement total.

For example, if I want to have two squads of Micro Corp Agents as Reinforcements, that is 200-points towards my total number. I don’t have to use both squads, but I can only pull from two squads as Reinforcements for my matches.


SELECTING ARMIES:
After each player is assigned to a map and an opponent, the two players will reveal their Core Army. Players may also ask to see their opponent’s tournament record sheet which will show their list of potential Reinforcements. Once each player knows their opponent’s Core Army, they will secretly decide on their Reinforcements and record those on their tournament record sheet. After both have recorded their choices, they will reveal their Reinforcements and set up for the match.

--
COMMENTS ON ‘REINFORCEMENT’ FORMAT:
Is the format too complex?

The answer – that’s up to you.

The nice feature of this format is that you can make it as complex as you want to. Players can tinker with their army until their heart is content, but if you want to bring just one army and make sure you have 150 points of lower graded characters – you are good to go.

While players *can* alternate which units are used for their Reinforcements each match, this is not required. You are welcome to use the same 500-point Army throughout the event as long as at least 150-points comes from the Reinforcement list.

For beginning players, I would recommend a strong Core Army with a short list of Reinforcements in case they want some variety. For intermediate to advanced players, you have the option for some creative freedom in army construction between rounds, and choices after you see what map you are playing on.

Please feel free to PM or post questions here.

Re: Seattle - NHSD 2011

I'm in, plus a friend. Will also be inviting the rest of the guys I play with (though we haven't played in months). Some of them have only played a few times but obfuscatedhippo mentioned last year there was a beginners bracket, so it should all be good. I'll either update here or let obfuscatedhippo know when I hear back from my other buddies.

Re: Seattle - NHSD 2011

Hey! I played with you guys for some time back when we were playing up north, but the drive was such a schlep that it stopped being feasible. Card Kingdom is much closer to me, and I'd love to come play 'Scape again. I can't confirm for sure, but I'm definitely thinking about it. I might also bring a friend or two.

EDIT: Actually, put me down for myself and one guest, as of now.

Re: Seattle - NHSD 2011

Hey Seattle players! We have opened the invitation for our local NHSD to the Portland/Vancouver WA folks .. and they are going to move their NHSD event to a special event in November so that we can attend.

Here's some info:

--
NORTHWEST CHAMPIONSHIP: We have joined forces with the Portland/Vancouver group in the effort to bring our corner of the world closer together (and to provide more opportunities to Scape). The NHSD for Portland/Vancouver is on November 5. Follow this link for more information: Portland/Vancouver NHSD. The top three finishers in combined rankings for the two tournaments get an extra "valuable" prize furnished by the tournament organizers (more information on prizes to follow and 1st place gets a trophy!).

So, start planning.

http://www.heroscapers.com/community...ad.php?t=37663

Contact Longy418 for possible carpooling north to Seattle .

Contact Nomad for possible carpooling south to Vancouver/Portland. The more the merrier!

Peace, *Kai

Re: Seattle - NHSD 2011

Hi there,

The basic format will be a five-round tournament, with maps representing the main terrain types (dungeon, jungle, lava, road, tundra).

Army size will be 500-points, using official figures only (no Marvel).

Nomad and I are still working on the tournament format. We have been brainstorming on ways to incorporate some of the lesser-played units .. and hope to reveal more specifics soon.

Thanks,
*Kai
