Players should bring 3 identical physical copies of their list. Digital supplements/lists on tablets are welcome but physical lists are required. Lists must be legal according to battlefront miniatures. Players should print off their lists before arriving. Players will use the same list for the entire tournament. Players should email their list to Anthony Burger ([email protected]) by October 4th at 11:59pm to be reviewed for an extra sportsmanship point.
Players must also bring a copy of:
• The Team Yankee Rulebook V2 (mini or standard size)
• Forces book their list came from (multiple if using more than one nation)
• Any Errata related to the rules or their force(s)
Players should also bring dice, tokens, template, measuring tape, objectives, rule supplements or anything else they might need to play their army.
Armies don’t need to be fully painted or based but this will be part of the tournament’s scoring. WYSIWIG in terms of models is enforced. Players should inform their opponents of any specialized teams, or special rules before their games(s) starts.
Missions will be determined the Team Yankee more mission packet on Battlefront’s website. Packet will be provided. Players can select a single stance (Attack, Maneuver, Defend) twice per tournament. Players should use a dice to indicate their choice of stance. If one or both players during a mission have previously played a mission, reroll the mission selection.
Initial pairings will be based on NATO against Warsaw Pact, distance traveled by players, and previous standings on battle rankings. Subsequent parings will be based on wins and losses and relative score of wins and losses. Table assignment will be random and no table can be requested to be played on. The TO will attempt to ensure no player plays on the same table twice. No player will play on the same table consecutively. Players with limited mobility will be accommodated for.
The TO will announce time throughout the tournament. If the round is about to end (30mins or less) both players should be able to get a full turn in before the round ends. In addition missions where objectives don’t go live until the 6th turn should play until those objectives go live, giving the attacker and defender an equal chance of winning. When time is called players need to finish the step they are on.
Any questions should go to Anthony Burger, [email protected]
Any arguments or rule questions should be attempted to be resolved by first checking the rulebook, the players should then refer to the tournament organizer(s) (Anthony Burger).
