Team Canada? Team America? I don't know what you guys are talking about. You might not have heard, but there will be 2 full Atlanta teams there this year. Maybe you guys can play off for 3rd place or something.

:lol: Oh cool, I guess I found the official trash talking thread. Good stuff.

Just curious, who is "Team America"?

While we're changing the rules, why not also make it so that each person has to play a different map?

Hi Guys:

As a potential team tourney newbie, I am unaware of what the what the 2010 rules were. is this it?

Teams will consist of 3 players each. Each player within a team will build a 200pt squad from a different faction. During squad building, unique characters with the same name can be used only once within in a team. Different versions of characters can be used by different players within a team. The Restricted map list will be used for this event.

Player matchups between teams will be the same as last year. Each team will roll 1 die. The team with the higher die roll will choose the first matchup between players. The opposing team will then decide the other two matchups. All players will have the opportunity to look over the opposing team’s squad list, to help your team make the best decision for matchups. Once matchups are determined, start your games according to normal DCI floor rules.

The results of each game will determine whether you team has won/lost the match. Your team will need to win 2 of the 3 games in order to win the matchup. The first tiebreaker will be the total games won/lost between your teammates. The second tiebreaker will be head-to-head matchups.

Except for the unique character restriction, the floor rules are the same as last year. Here is the big new twist to this event. The maximum number of teams for this event will be 16. If for some reason we don’t have 16 teams register, then we will fall back to a Swiss style format.
The 16 teams will be split up into 4 pools, with 4 teams in each pool. Your team will play each team within your pool once. The winner of each pool will move onto the semifinals.

Below is an example of a legal team squad list and then an example of how pool play will work:
Team Canada’s squad lists from last year

Separatist Rebel

Gen Grevious DAC 57 Luke’s Landspeeder 47
Darth Sideous 36 Dash Rendar, RS 28
Lancer Droid 30 K-3PO 20
Chameleon Droid 25 Princess Leia 20
Battle Droid Officer 8 Bothan Noble 17
IG-86, Assn Droid 16 Dark Hellion Marauder on Swoop 10
Gha Naghkt 12 Gen Rieekan 14
Ugo Demo x3 9 Juno Eclipse 8
Mouse Droid x2 4 Mouse Droid x8 24
Battle Droid 3 Ugo Demo x4 12

New Republic

Kyle Katarn, JBM 54
Mara Jade, Jedi 45
Ossus Guardian 26
Leia Skywalker, JK 25
Gen Wedge Antilles 23
Gen Dodonna 9
Ugo Demo x3 9
Mouse Droid x3 9

As I was looking over Team Canada’s squad list, the only unique character that was duplicated was Gen Dodonna. So, for this example I pulled Dodonna out of the Rebel squad and replaced him with 3 more Mouse Droids.

Pool play example

The following teams are in the same pool:
Team Fear / Team Texas / Team Elitist / Team Cincy

Round 1 matchups
Team Fear vs. Team Texas Team Fear wins (2-1)
Team Elitist vs. Team Cincy Team Elitist wins(2-1)

Round 2 matchups
Team Fear vs. Team Elitist Team Fear wins(2-1)
Team Texas vs. Team Cincy Team Cincy wins(3-0)

Round 3 matchups
Team Fear vs. Team Cincy Team Cincy wins (2-1)
Team Elitist vs. Team Texas Team Elitist wins (2-1)

Pool results are as follows:

Team Cincy 6victory pts(6-3)
Team Fear 6victory pts(5-4)
Team Elitist 6victory pts(5-4)
Team Texas 0victory pts(2-7)

As you can see, Team Cincy will move onto the semifinals because their player record was better than the other 2 teams in their pool. Team Fear would place 2nd in their pool because of the head-to-head win vs. Team Elitist.

I believe that pool play will last for 4 hours. 50 minute rounds with extra time for matchup decisions and for bathroom/smoke breaks. I would like to have a time clock for each pool, to help move the event faster. I will bring 2 clocks, so I will need some help from all of you for the extra 2 clocks needed.
Depending on where we are located, I would like to have a large posterboard up on the wall to display the names of the teams that have registered. When a team registers, a team member will roll a die to determine which pool they will be in. So at the start, the first team will roll an 8-sider. A roll of 1 or 5 will place you in Pool A, a roll of 2 or 6 will place you in Pool B and so forth. Once a pool is filled, the die will change to a 6-sider. Once 2 pools are filled the die will change to a 4-sider. This is the best way to randomize each pool of teams. I would like to start registering teams on Thursday. For anyone that has purchased an official event ticket for tteam

I don't believe there are any restrictions on uniques either. I am under the impression that if all three squads want to use Boba, BH then that is ok.

Anyone else?

Teams of 3 players will bring their 200 point squad and maps and face off in a team style tournament. Team rules maybe adjusted prior to event beginning.

At this point I do not believe there are any restrictions on uniques.

So the only restriction is three different factions?

that is my understanding of the team tourney rules for this year anyway ( I am sure next year will bring some changes)
