  1. 40K OFCC Team Event - Conversation starts here!

    Maybe you are right....maybe I was secretly supporting my newly found heritage :)
  2. 40K OFCC Team Event - Conversation starts here!

    The thread may be dead, but think of this as a wake rather than funeral. Over the course of a few weeks, we pretty much stayed on topic and revealed a ton of cool information about OFCC. I'm not sure if we have ever had this many details out 6 months before the event before. It is an exciting time and this thread is just the start. :) Also, with over 400 responses this thread broke into the top 10 most responded to threads in the history of the 40K sub-forum on Ordo. So, raise a glass and toast a post well lived!

    Bonus Spoiler!!! In honor of the release of Black Panther, I felt compelled to add a post credit spoiler. :) There will be a special award for the first fully paid team!
  4. 40K OFCC Team Event - Conversation starts here!

    Now we have reached page 15, which will be the last page I spoil a detail for OFCC. I have been sitting on this detail for weeks, and I knew it would be the last thing I would share in this thread. You may remember back towards the beginning of the thread where we spoke about the return of challenges, and I even shared that it would be possible to have more the one challenge round. It is now time to unveil the complete plan. Teams will be able to challenge opponents for all three games played on Saturday. Matches will be paired randomly on Sunday. Here are the rules: Challenges are options, and not required for play on Saturday All challenge matches must be prearranged by 8/1/2018 Both Captains must agree to the challenge match Only fully paid teams are qualified to arrange challenge matches After 8/1, challenge matches cannot be changed The process for submitting challenge matches will be outlined in the Players Guide. Between challenge matches and captain's pairing, players have never had a better chance to have an unforgettable OFCC experience.

    Page 14, and my well of OFCC secrets is getting pretty thin at this point. So, let's provide another date....the Mission Pack will be published on June 1st and will contain 4 of the OFCC 40K Missions. The secret 5th mission will not be revealed until OFCC weekend.
  6. 40K OFCC Team Event - Conversation starts here!

    For the page 13 spoiler, I need to do some stage setting. In planning to manage an event of this size I'm sure it comes as no surprise that I have a task list of things that need to happen. Here is a glimpse at that list: Determine the event scoring criteria by category (there will be an opportunity to earn points pre-event like last year) Decide on this year's approach to list review, submissions, rating and team matching methodology Construct the team captain checklist and list of achievements Build and publish the Player's Guide (to include all things listed above) Create the missions and mission scoring (to be a separate guide) Update player achievements (for Spirit) Design the player event reference sheet/packet Determine the game scoring and reporting mechanism (sheet, app, etc.) Now that you have seen how the sausage is made, the page 13 spoiler is that the Player's Guide will be published on March 15th.
  7. Game Night at W.O.W. - Tueday 2/13

    @ninefinger I'm down!

    Page 12, who knew we would get this far This page update is important, and you can expect it to be communicated broadly as we get closer to the event. Over the years, I know I have personally been pretty lax in enforcing the painting standards in our 40K event. It was not difficult last year to walk through the venue to see a few models or even a squad or two below the event minimum. I think this is a slippery slope and needs to be corrected before it gets worse. For this years 40K OFCC, the Painting requirements will be strictly enforced and models not meeting the minimums cannot be fielded. Captain's will be responsible for checking all armies on their team prior to the event. If you think you will have players struggling to meet these minimums, then please leverage the community for last minute painting on Friday night or borrowing models that meet the requirements.
  9. 40K OFCC Team Event - Conversation starts here!

    Fair question, and at this point I do not have an answer. There will be a date prior to the event where we lock out all future updates, but that date has not been determined yet. You can expect advance warning of that date, but it will not be spoiled as one of the page reveals. (damn, I should I used THAT fact as the next reveal...wasted opportunity!) :)

    Looks like I should jump in before we leave page 11 :) For this spoiler, we will expand on our page 10 item to add that all Games Workshop and Forgeworld models that have rules for 8th edition will be allowed at OFCC.

    Page 10 update under the wire! :) Since I made you wait, let's make it a good one.... This year, we will be using battle-forged armies with a max of 3 detachments...get to building!

    Okay, before we leave page 9, I should get to the spoiling. :) Since today is Superbowl Sunday, I am in sports mood. Not being a sports guy (or really a football guy) page 9 makes me think 9th inning, so it is time for some inside baseball (to coin a phrase.) After analyzing team scores last year and how they contributed to the best overall, I was unhappy with the contribution ratio and felt it was too focused on Sportsmanship. Now, I know that may sound shocking coming from me as I hope that I am known as a Sportsmanship fanboy. I just think that it needs to be a more balanced approach to calculating something like Best Overall. Let me show you what I mean: 2017 OFCC Team Results: If you average 2017 results across the board, it breaks down like this: 54% Sports, 22% Painting, and 24% Spirit It is clear to me there is room for improvement, and a need for a change. So finally, the Page 9 spoiler is that the Best Overall will be calculated from 40% Sports, 25% Painting, 30% Spirit, and 5% Captain Achievements

    With us reaching Page 8, I turn to the Magic 8 Ball for this next tidbit. "Oh Magic 8 Ball, will the OFCC be an ITC event or use ITC rules?" Now don't get me wrong, I am HUGE fan of Reece, Frankie and everyone else associated with Frontline/ITC/LVO etc. I think they have been an immensely positive force on the gaming community and I would be happy to advocate for them every opportunity I could. I would really have a hard time running out of nice things to say, but that is not the purpose of this thread. :) Unfortunately, in my opinion the ITC approach to 40K does not align well to the OFCC approach to 40K. That is why OFCC will not use ITC rules.
  14. Rogue Trading rules for posting?

    Well, if replacement is not an option there are other ways of upgrading. :)

    Some of you may know that Nurgle is my favorite Chaos god, so I consider 7 to be sacred number. As such, the reveal for Page 7 should be significant. Army size this year will be 2000 points!
