Online Season 22 - Reverse Draft -- CONGRATS DOK!

Online Heroscape Season 22


WINNERS REPORT GAMES HERE!
Spoiler Alert!




This is a 2015 End of Year Championship qualifying event.
Games are played using the online Heroscape interface. Links to how-to-play videos below:
Spoiler Alert!
Using an online voice chat utility, such as Skype or Google Hangouts, improves the playing experience considerably.

Format: Reverse Draft
  • Each player submits one army of between 400 and 600 points, and between 7 and 20 figures. Army submissions may have more than 20 figures, but no more than 20 can be placed at the start of the game. VC Allowed, no Marvel. Standard 24-hex startzone restrictions apply when placing your army.
  • There is a dice-off at the beginning of the game. The winner of the dice-off chooses whether to make the first army selection, or defer the opening choice to their opponent.
  • For the opening army selection, a player selects one of the two armies to play (their army or their opponent's army). They may also state that they intend to sit (leave out) specific figures from that army. Figures left out are not part of the army for that game.
  • The player who did not make the bid has two choices:
    1. Let their opponent play the chosen army, and take the other army.
    2. Make a counter-offer for the chosen army. The new offer must sit enough figures to make the partial card point total lower than the offer that came before.
  • Continue the counter-offer process until one player decides to take the other army (with all figures available) instead of making a counter-offer on the bidded army.

Example Reverse Draft:
Spoiler Alert!


The regular season will last four weeks, with one game each week. After the regular season ends there will be a single elimination bracket for the top finishers.

Corrected. There was some miscommunication between the code we have to set this up and the google forms and it cut off everything after Wolves of Badru alphabetically. I'm not sure exactly what happened but a work around was implemented and it should be good to go.

Re: Online Season 22 - Reverse Draft (Signups Until 9/27)

This sounds super confusing. What's the incentive as the second player to bid. Almost seems convoluted enough that i'd just want to skip it and go straight to playing. Furthermore it seems like winning the dice off is more of a bane than a boon as the other player can force you to play under the point total.

If I've brought Drudge and you've brought Stingers and my opening bid is "Eh, I'll play a Stinger light.", if you don't bid lower you're going to have to beat Stingers with Drudge.

As to the diceoff, well it all depends on the armies. In some situations, playing under the point total is not a bad thing. I'll take 2 squads of 4th Mass against about 5 squads of Groks. The goal is to end up with a balanced matchup. In some matchups, winning the diceoff will give you an advantage and in some it won't.

~Dysole, hopefully clarifying

Re: Online Season 22 - Reverse Draft (Signups Until 9/27)

Hmm I see. So as far as building my own army goes what level/grade of units should I focus on?

What's more important is that it's breakdownable (i.e. something with a lot of high point heroes could struggle unless they're all bad so you'll be dissecting the other guys' army). You can pretty comfortably submit just about any level of units.

~Dysole, helpfully

Standard 24-space startzone rules will apply. No extra hexes.

Re: Online Season 22 - Reverse Draft (Signups Until 9/27)

So let me get this straight,

I make an army 400-600,
opponent makes an army 400-600.

We die roll, highest # wins.

Winner gets to either choose:
Picking their own army
Picking their opponent's army.

The opponent can then offer; "I will trade you armies under the condition that I sit out x many of x units."

Then I can either say "Yes, that's good, let the game begin." or "No, offer up more." until both parties are satisfied / ready?
