Ahoy, commanders! It's with a bit of embarrasment that I note that it's been a while since we had a league. I intended to do a slow grow league when 8th edition came out but for various reasons that didn't happen. In any case, it's league time!
The first round pairings will be generated on 2018/01/29 at 1am EST.
Lists are restricted to 2000 points.
All published codexes, indexes, White Dwarf lists are valid.
Proxies are not allowed (although rule of cool does apply).
You may play different lists throughout the event (i.e. you don't have to play the same list each game).
Prizes will be awarded for the top three players.
The $5.00 entry fee may be paid to one of the friendly Brimstone Games Staff members.
Each league round is 2 weeks. You will need to play your assigned opponent within that time period or indicate forfeit.
If neither player reports the results of a battle before the next round begins both players count as receiving a loss.
In order to cater to our friends preparing for LVO and Canhammer, if your opponent brings an ITC or ETC mission pack and wishes to play those rules you are compelled to do so - but only if they have the rule packet handy. Otherwise missions are determined randomly.
Competitive rules, per the main 40K rule book and Chapter approved are in effect.
Chapter Approved 2017 rules and points values are in effect.
These are pretty much the standard rules we've been playing with but if you have any questions feel free to let me know and good luck!
If you're practicing for ITC/ETC I would recommend following those rules for your list although you are not compelled to do so for the purpose of the league. Any legal Battle Forged army is legal for the league.
Just because you aren't ALWAYS playing the ITC missions doesn't mean the games won't be "good competitive 40k".... I honestly dont know why you would even think that. And plus, i can't reaaaalllly see anyone saying NO! i wont play ITC missions with you! im sure most people dont really care which mission they play, playing new missions and adapting to them makes you a better player in my opinion. And i know i speak not only for myself but a few other people who have already signed up, we could care less which missions we play, and would gladly play ITC missions should we be paired up against you. And besides, league matches are once every two weeks, and if you do get paired with someone who absolutely refuses to play the missions you want, it'll be like one game in a month you're missing out on ITC practice.... and now im rambling.....but at the end of the day its obviously your call. If you dont want to sign up and play some good players, then don't. But i think its a pretty lame reason to not participate.
