Re: GenCon 2018 Events?

A couple clarifications: is Day 1 only 4 rounds? Looks like it's 5 now.

And is Day 2 swiss, not elimination? Note that I like that change if true.

Re: GenCon 2018 Events?

Are C3V/SoV units only allowed at the Custom Matches events, or are those specifying that our own customs are welcome?

Sorry, but I'm still a little confused by your answer. Just to be clear, C3V units are only allowed at the Custom Matches events, but we can also bring our own creations to those, right? Any other event is official designs only?

I think his answer was a humorous way of saying both are allowed in the custom matches. It's like answering "yes" to a this-or-that question.

"Play however you like" is the central rule to the custom matches.

The C3G event is a "C3G army." All other events are official Heroscape with or without Marvel, as specified.

I presume Marvel is not allowed in Cluster Draft, correct?

Thanks for the clarification; I just wanted to make sure that I understood correctly that C3V units are only allowed at the Custom Matches events. I will admit to having a good chuckle about the answer, though.

It does not say they are not. There cannot be too many cards that fit in that range though. Spidey and Venom.

It also does not say that they are. Flex tourney specifically states that they are allowed (and it's not a real tournament, so balance doesn't really matter in that one).
