PDX Open Warmachine Tournament, March 2nd


Recommended Posts

A link to a link for the details is poor form, especially when there is nothing being answered anywhere besides "Steamroller! 75 Points! Top 8 get points for Warmachine Weekend!"

This is a Steamroller, 75 points, 1-2 lists, what else? Painting required? Timed rounds? Chess clocks? Death clock? Prize support? Base line? Specialists? Final Standing variants? Any "House Rules" we need to be made aware of? Will the scenarios be published before hand, or will it be random each round? Do I need to bring my own objectives? Do I need physical cards, or will Warroom be enough? We are submitting lists via conflict chamber, but should I bring paper copies for my opponents without a tablet? Will there be free wifi for internet and using conflict chamber? Are you providing any incentive for people to continue playing after they lose a game? Only top 8 get points, and I imagine you'll have the standard Steamroller prize kit, so only 1-3 will get a trophy?

Thanks Jesselowe for posting SOMETHING. I was about to ask because a buddy in Seattle told me about this even this weekend and was asking questions I couldn't answer. Many of the questions above are from him.

I am not the tournament organizer, I'm just signal boosting.

AFAIK, though: Standard steamroller, with death clock, as per the current steamroller packet. As for questions not answered there: What is "Base line?" Specialists are no longer a thing. Final standings might be based on average of CP and AP as tiebreakers, but you'd have to check with the TO. No house rules I know of. Objectives and scenario elements will be provided.  I recommend bringing a printout of your Conflict Chamber list, just in case. I don't know about wifi at the venue. The only incentive to keep playing after you lose is because you enjoy playing the game. Check with the TO about the prize kit and prize support.
