A simple... "LRB6 - Galak S. and the BBRC rules!" Would work.

What can GW do about it?

1) Most of the community is calling the new competition rules LRB6, but GW is not.
2) Galak Starscraper is a GW "creation". Galak S. is not.
3) You're just showing your love for a certain GW character.
4) BBRC - what is that? I don't think that is trademarked.

Obviously there is a double meaning, but seriously, they can't do much about it as long as you don't use any of their IP, which you aren't. However, you could use the Gutcruncher font since that is available for free. http://www.dafont.com/gutcruncher.font

Galak 3:16 says "There is a point in time that a player really should read LRB6."

With this great idea in mind, I was thinking of something similar. It is only right and proper that we air our opinions on this matter, our disgust at the way that the game and Galak has been treated.

I have a cost free option. What about everyone having the name 'Galak' in their team name i.e. Galak's Reavers, Champions of Galak etc? This would perhaps cause those refs who apparently aren't really aware of the game to ask "who is Galak" to which we can reply in full! At the very least its a way for the community to have a say without degenerating to insults, threats or other behaviour that would be more detrimental to our cause.

I think it's a free, reasonably adult way of approaching the issue that will let our voice be heard, be unavoidable for GW - if every team has the name in it, it simply can't be ignored in terms of recording participants and winners etc.

The Events team have confirmed that is correct. I got an email this week to say it is.

Did the Events team give you solid dates for the GT and the day of release for tickets?

The Mail Order Trolls were as useful as I expected...

The BBGT is advertised in the February White Dwarf, a full page article confirms that the Tourney tickets go on sale 8th February.

Interestingly, the advert states the rules to be used are the "Living Rule Book, available on the Specialist games website."

I wonder if the left hand and the right hand have any idea what the other is doing.
