A friend and I are tinkering around with various scenario rules for team-based events at our LGS. We think it would make things more interesting than just your standard Swiss or round robin tournament to line up two teams and go at it objective style. We'd love to hear any ideas you have on the topic.
The basic theory is to develop a system in which you have two tiers of objectives; Team and Individual. The Individual objectives will be essential to the success of the Team objective, but still independently tracked and scored. Partly because we want to be able to determine an individual Champion on the winning team, partly because we think this might be a good basis for a League scoring system. For now we're basing our models on 3 vs. 3 events, and then working on ways to modify them as necessary.
Currently we have two variations on a Base Assault scenario for use as examples. I'll start with Extraction, and use the Rebels. For them, the Team Objective is to recover a shuttle (which will shift to the Falcon instead once it's out) from a platform on an Imperial station into hyperspace (off the Rebel edge). The platform has a turbolaser and a tractor beam that needs to be put out of commission before the shuttle can take off (the fluff and other factors are irrelevant to the topic at hand but I'll be happy to share them if you're interested). Taking these out is one of the individual goals. Protecting the player responsible for this objective is another. Individual goals are not disclosed to the other team by the way, ya know, just to insure no personal grudges play a part in the outcome.
When setting up, each team receives their goals and 15-20 minutes to build their squads and they do so together. They decide amongst themselves who is responsible for each IO. For most of these scenarios, we've instituted a rule of one unique figure per squad, but each one is considered to have the text of Squad Leader printed on his card. We feel like this helps create the mission within a greater war feel we're going for.
I know I could do more to explain this better, buuuut I'm watching football. Gotta love old school games like this one. Anyway, I await your thoughts and questions.
