Points and Aggression Bonus
At the end of each game, both players will add up the Victory
Points they earned during the game.
The player who won will receive 3 Round Points.
The player who lost will receive 1 Round Point.
Players who draw do not receive any Round Points (but if time
allows the Judge will find a way to break the tie).
Using the Swiss Style tournament rules each person will play 3
The Judge will then add the total Round Points together of the 3
games for each person and determine the winner of the tournament.
In case of a tie in Round Points, total Victory Points will be
looked at to break any ties.
Note that Victory Points are only tallied by what you earn during
the game – Build Totals are not factored into Victory Points.
If a player destroys over half of his opponent’s force by the
end of the game, he will be awarded an additional Round point
(regardless of whether the player wins or loses the game).
Before each round begins, every player in the tourney has the option of putting a Battlefield Condition Card forward. One card will then be randomly chosen and will affect all of the games that round. Once a player's Battlefield Condition has been selected, he may not put forward any further cards during the tournament.
There must be at least 4 cards placed each round. If
there are not enough cards or players to meet the minimum of 4 cards,
the Judge may either supplement the pool with random scenarios or elect
that no Battlefield Condition is played that turn.
Any Feat Cards assigned to a character adds to that character's point cost for all intensive purposes. The same applies for any benefit derived from a Feat Card (The Thunderbolts card, for example, adds 5 points to each figure that is utilizing the card even though only a single card is required). If in doubt, ask your Judge.
