The ACC is set to become the first ever two day Progression Tournament in the UK.
Sanctioned by The NAF, the tournament will be run according to the CRP with the following exceptions, ammendments and clarifications:
Starting Treasury: 1,050,000
Slann, Underworld, Chaos Pact rosters included.
No Inducements allowed in starting roster.
All Inducements allowed (except Special Play Cards) and to be chosen once opponent is known.
No Petty Cash to be used for Inducements, hiring of new players to the roster (including Journeymen) to be done before next opponent is known.
The Coach may choose which player receives the MVP award after each game.
All Skill rolls must be made immeadiately after the game and skills chosen then before opponent known. (+stats are allowed)
Any Ogre teams will be allowed to allocate ONE extra MVP to a player of their choice prior to the first game.
Points will be awarded as follows:
Win: 3 Points
Draw: 1 Point
Loss: 0 Points
Each round will be drawn according to the Swiss format with no reference to TDs, CAS or TV
If two or more coaches are tied for first place overall at the end of the final game, TD Difference will be used to find final placings.
It is expected that you will be able to provide appropriate miniatures for any stars that you may induce (or at least proxies that distinguish them from regular team members)
It would be sensible to ensure you bring a good number of skill rings.
Starting Rosters will be required in advance of The ACC so that provision can be made for effecient printing of updated rosters in between rounds.
- what's included? 6 games
(3 each day) Brilliant prizes
- a fully painted pro elf team with cheerleaders and stars thanks to Cornish Mikey, and some great minis with thanks to Willy Miniatures. Lunch on both days
(menu will be provided, choices to be made a week in advance) If you have never joined The NAF
before, your £20 will include membership.
