Soo... it's not doubles... except for round three?!? Why the heck is it called doubles? Shouldn't it just be a team event, with teams consisting of two players?! And 2,000 points?!? So game three is 4,000 points per side, 4 players... hope there's increased time allotment for that game...


In my mind, doubles is a great chance to build on the strengths of your army while another player covers your weaknesses in a collaborative effort. If we're playing two 1v1 battles, those weaknesses are much more prevalent. If I bring magic so my teammate doesn't have to, then during the 1v1 matches, he won't have a caster. This means we each have to bring lists to account for all aspects rather than building off your doubles partner. This also means that during game 3, one person can/will have a useless caster because their teammate has a better one, etc. So now you're just wasting points.


Running it this way defeats the entire purpose of having a 'doubles' event IMO.
