On-Line League Rules


Fool’s On-Line League 2010-11

Overall Rules

Concept
“They’re dead…every single one of them.” - Anakin Skywalker (Attack of the Clones)

The concept of the On-Line League 2010-11 is not only to win, but to win by slaughter. This season the participating teams will be ruled in the standings by kill points (gambit does NOT count towards this). Games however can still be played to gambit but this is not required. The match ends when one side is totally destroyed and both players are given points equal to their kills which are reported in. Therefore, it would be better to lose 154-142 then win 110-12 as the loser in the first example picks up 142 points for the season.

Sign-Up
Sign-up will begin August 11th. From there the pre-season can begin and will run until Thursday, September 2nd.

The season starts on Friday, September 3rd.


Pre-Season
There will be no teams for pre-season but once players sign-up they can feel free to start playing to the rules as explained below. They are also encouraged to track wins by point kills. No bonuses will be awarded for Pre-Season but it will give players a chance to adjust to the format and also work any potential kinks out.

Teams
There will be a team element (2-8 teams) with 3-8 players. I'm only anticipating 12 or so players so that's a good start, Players will be randomly placed on a team after they sign-up before the season begins.

Each team will have advisors just to keep track of the team threads if needed

Unique Requirements
Every Squad 100 points and under requires at least 1 Unique Miniature. Anything 150 and over requires 2 Unique Miniatures. There are no other requirements other than this.

Set Reductions
The League will start with all 16 sets and supplements as legal. Starting September 15th, one set will be randomly removed from use for all teams. On the 30th of the month 2 sets will be removed. From there on 1 set will be reduced on the 15th of the month, 2 on the 30th until the End of December. Supplements will be removed in league with their appropriate sets (Battle of Hoth is included in Alliance & Empire).

Joining the League in Progress
Players are welcome to join the league in process at any time and will be randomly assigned to a team.

Reporting
It will be up to the players to report and confirm their matches. For reporting, either player can post (I recommend the winner to be consistent) with their name, team and the kill points as well as the faction and uniques they used followed by the loser, team, kill points and uniques used.

Example:
Player 1 (Team A) wins over Player 2 (Team B) 112-96
100 Point Match
Map: Starship

Player 1
Obi-Wan Kenobi
C-3P0
(Non-Uniques)

Player 2
Darth Vader, Sith Lord
Emperor Palpatine


You can choose to report the full squad but only the Uniques are required as long as the squads are legal. It is up to BOTH players to validate the legality of the squad(s). When the game begins, the match is sealed regardless of whether or not the squad(s) are legal.

In-Game Rules

Legal Game Formats:

2 player: 50, 100, 150, 200
3 Player (Point Squads): 50, 75, 100, 150, 200
4 Player (Point Squads): 50, 75, 100, 150, 200

4 Player would be 2 v 2 or free for all

Tile Wars (Point Squads): 100, 150, 200

Gameplay
Both Players roll for map, winner decides map and can setup first or defer. Squads can be built in secret or placed on the map at the discretion of the players (it is strongly recommended to build your squad in secret).

Legal Maps
This will be determined at the onset of the League

Gambit
As mentioned, games do not require playing to the gambit scoring ring; however, they can be played to gambit if both players agree. Standard DCI Rules apply.

Playoffs
The Playoffs commence Feb 1st. An announcement will be made mid-season to decide the miniatures available.

The format will be like previous season with the first round consisting of 200 Points of matches, the second round 400 points of matches and the final round 600 points of matches.

Questions/Comments
Please post in the Rules thread if you have any questions/comments.

Question #1Ya I was just checking that out. Sounds cool! Starts in September right? I'm on East Coast time in New York. What time of day will you be running this



There is no set "time" that you can play. Anyone can play anytime during the day when another League member is on.

Will we be allowed to use the Virtual set pieces being released by the design team at swmgamers.com? I'm not sure when they plan to release the entire set, but they have a few pieces already previewed.

Re: On-Line League Rules


Alright I have a big question. In a game where I used Cay Qel Droma, Cay's legacy suceeded in causeing Vaders Apprentice, Redemed to join my side. Do I get the points for converting him added to my kill point total?

Just wondering, cause even though I won the game, I only got 52 points in kills if the Apprentice didn't count.
