So I was thinking about the rules we have currently for the Assault on Imdaar event. Yes, I know we're still awaiting the rules sheet, but I would like tother TO's opinions just in case it isn't explicitly stated in the rules sheet.
The website says that after the preliminary rounds, the top two finishers create lists using the new ships. Now after Round 4, do you calculate the Top four winners(for prizes) like normal amongst the whole field? Chances are the person who lost the game while using the new ships will fall out of the Top 4, so they got to PLAY with the new ships, but they didn't actually win one. Correct? Is that how other TOs would run it? I was also thinking of awarding the ships to the Top 2 Rebel and Top two Emprie players after calculating the points across the WHOLE field after round 4. Thoughts? To give numbers we typically have over 20 people at our events.
To make it easier on yourself, determine rankings after the swiss rounds. Top 2 play for first pick, everyone else stays ranked in order. Top 2 pick their ships and 3 picks from 2 left over then 4th gets last ship.
If 3 and 4 are tied in ranking you can have them playoff for right of 3rd pick at the same time as the top table is playing theirs.
Maybe im misunderstanding but top 2 unless it's tied should not have to play for first pick.
According to ffg it says first place picks first, then second.
I'm just curious how many ships a store has.
From my understanding the top 2 get both ships from whatever faction and then make a list with them.
3rd,and 4th get to pick last, so what do they pick from?
I'm a little confused how this works
Does the top 4 only get 1 each or what?
Just re read the news section on the Imdaar alpha.
So let's say the To decided to do 4 rounds.
Everyone plays 3, then top 2 gets to play using 2 ships each, gets to keep one for themselves, Which after that the 3,4 place get to pick.
So how do you guys deal with if there is a tie for first, second, third,and etc?
Last tournament I was at the was 2 ties for first and second, so those 4 got the prizes.
I believe that is how it worked out
