    Thank you Huffy Puffy
    Burk, your over-use of periods is driving me crazy. Use one, or three (also known as an ellipses), not four, you heathen.

    I have updated the main post with the changes. Thank you to everyone for the well thought out and kind suggestions and explanations of your specific situations. I really do like my own ideas LOL however I am humbled and inspired by the knowledge, wisdom and experience of my fellow gamers here at ORDO. I hope I did not ruffle anyone too much, I know this will be an incredible event and will be EXACTLY what we all need after the current lockdown.

    For the benefit of all involved I am revising my previous plan. Thank you to everyone who has voiced their opinion, and thank you for everyone keeping a cool head about it. I would like to bounce some ideas about factions around at the ORDO senate meeting but for now please know that the restrictions will be relaxed significantly. I will finalize the specifics after this weekend. Team size is going to remain at 4 as in previous years.

    That would not really be a Pollyanna, but perhaps an optimistic perspective from a single (and perchance privileged) point of view. There may be 31 factions to choose from, but your assumption is that each player at OFCC has access to all 31 of those factions, and enough time and money to prepare a brand new army from now until the end of July. Additionally, we have multiple teams (mine included) that travel over 2,000 miles at great personal expense to attend an event that we believe in, an event that I have pushed and recruited people for over a decade and a half. The ability to simply 'find more people' or 'switch up teams' is not easy for those of us that do not live in the hallowed PNW anymore (and boy do I miss it).
     
    Burk, you know I love you man. We've known each other for a while now, and you also know I wont censor myself. I know you, and for all the German jokes, you're one of the most caring, giving, and selfless people I know (unless you're playing Blood Bowl), and Ordo would be nothing without the endless dedication of you and the rest of the Senators. Thank you for that. With that said, perhaps this statement was meant a different way, but this came across, to me at least, as "sorry our late decision makes it so you can't play in the event you want to, but here's this standard 40k event that isn't the one you came here to play, play in this one". I understand providing an alternative is gracious as hell of the HOG and the Senate, but I really feel that for teams such as Ordo East (as an example), in a tiny town with a single store, where almost everything is shut down and no one can buy anything, and who have already purchased their tickets and in some instances reserved hotel rooms, that is a bitter pill to swallow. This is assuming that I am not misunderstanding the intention of this co-current event. If this is a part of the OFCC team event, and just is a way for Ringers to participate without a team, then that might work. But a completely separate event just isn't the same.

    I want to reiterate that this new limitation affects my team in no way, as we never double up on factions, and I LIKE the change and what it's trying to do. I approve of diversity and not just seeing a team of five marine players all with similar lists. It's just the short time frame combined with the current economic/pandemic situation that I am objecting to, and the fact that this decision will make it impossible for some players and even entire teams to not be able to participate. At a time like this, in the type of situation everyone is in with this pandemic, taking away something like playing in the OFCC team event for such a reason just feels against the spirit of what OFCC and Ordo Fanaticus is all about.
    That being said all, this is just one person's opinion, and I will, of course, accept the final decision of the HOG and Senate. There are hundreds of small details that go on behind the scenes that we team captains and players do not understand or know about, and there could be a LOT more to this than we know. In the grand scheme of things, the Senate has never made a decision that they did not feel was in the best interest of the club, and I trust them. I simply am expressing my thoughts and feelings.

    If I have offended anyone, I apologize, it was not my intention. I love all of you guys, I wouldn't save up several grand a year and fly 2,500 miles to spend a single weekend throwing dice and drinking if I didn't. This event and it's spirit simply matters a LOT to me. Thank you for your understanding, patience, and attention.

    Not offended at all. This is not a reaction to the times we are in.  This individual event was planned from the start.   Why you ask?  Because a person wanted to run one.  The OFCC is about the players and the HOGS and if a HOG wants to run an event that his player base asked for, and it is still put on in the spirit of the event, we will do what we can to make it work.
    May it affect the size of the Team event,  perhaps, but it will likely increase participation in those that normally cannot make it.  Anyway,  more than willing to talk more about it, but I am not an english professor 🙂   love ya!

    I want to thank everyone for their opinion. I'm sure an arrangement can be made, and @Huffnpuff will come up with a solution. I agree being 3 months to the event isn't much time to shift entire teams/armies that have probably been building over the last year. 
    I think it sounds like everyone should do their best to spread out teams and try not to duplicate factions. This isn't anything new honestly, and always been something captains should be considering as OFCC is about flavor and providing good match-ups.
    IMO, i think something like above being mentions should attempt to get no duplicates of factions, but if no solution can be found allowing up to 2 factions duplicated? More than 2, should probably split teams. Just an idea at a solution, but other thoughts?

    Eager to come back for my 14th year at OFCC! Or is it 15th? I can't remember at this point. While this new team limitation doesn't affect Team Diversity very much (we always bring different armies for each person, hence the diversity), I feel that this will be quite a blow to a large number of teams that cannot afford to buy and make a new army at such a short notice. This announcement needed to come back in January, not April. With that said, I LIKE the change and what it is trying to do, don't get me wrong. My issue is the timing and the fact that there are many older gamers who cannot afford to/don't want to make a new army that come to OFCC as their only major 40k event each year. Any rule that restricts long-time members and participators out of hand without a recourse that doesn't cost 500+ dollars and/or 100+ hours of work painting and building cannot be for the good of the event. I feel that allowances should be made for some teams, like the Warhampsters who are all great guys and I love seeing them every year, to bend this new rule a bit.
     
    Otherwise, I'm looking forward to this event! Now to find a fifth member.... Khan? Skipper? Don? Gotta send out the all-call!
