Infinity Escalation League

Postby MisterSwiss » Tue Sep 20, 2016 6:37 pm

Hello all-

There's been some interest in starting an Infinity Escalation League, and I wanted to open it up to everyone else here.

Details:

  • You would have one game per week for 8 weeks.
  • You would use the same faction/sectorial for League games
  • First round pairings are random, and then scoring proceeds in the Swiss Style
  • If there is an odd number of players, no one will have more than one bye week (assuming we have more than 8 players).
  • You need an ITS number (free).
  • Games can be played anywhere: there is interest from The Portal over in Manchester for this as well. Players will need to work with their opponents to set up times to play.
  • Postings will be made each week, you should have a new opponent each week.
  • We can choose to have a prize kit- A standard prize kit is $50 usd. With 5-8 players, that goes from being $10 to $5 per person. Alternatively, we could do no prizes and make it cheaper, depending on how people feel (post your thoughts in here).
  • I'm also willing to chip in for a painting prize for the army that goes from absolute nothing to looking the best over the course of the tournament.



Weekly Details:
  • Each week, you submit your army list to the organizer. A PDF/paper from Army Builder 6 is desired.
  • Weeks 1-5 are a limited point amount and have a specific mission to be played.
  • For the 6th, 7th, and 8th league rounds, the organizer will choose an available scenario- no scenarios will be repeated.
  • For full details on the weekly stuff, go here: ITS Rules, page 63 - PDF Download

Briefly, the escalation league goes:
Week 1 - 120pts
Week 2 - 150pts
Week 3 - 200pts
Week 4 - 250pts
Week 5 - 300pts
Week 6 - 300pts + ITS Mission chosen by Organizer
Week 7 - 300pts + ITS Mission chosen by Organizer
Week 8 - 300pts + ITS Mission chosen by Organizer (Maybe 400pts?)

What do you all think? What would you like to see?

I love it, man. You can count on me for the League. An opportunity to start a new army from the beginning. I hope we find enough players!

If you want some introductory game to start with just ask for it!

What faction are you collecting?

Im not sure yet. The starter came with the two factions I am interested in, so I figured I would start painting and see which one I like better.

Red Veil? It's a pretty starter. You will enjoy painting the miniatures. Let us know when you want to start playing.

Out of curiosity, wh ouch factions are people planning for this? I want to be sure to add some variety to the league.

Probably Ariadna.

Tentatively, I'll be planning to try to start advertising this stuff soon with a league start in November.

Details as they come forwards.
