ComicReaders Downtown: Warmachine / Hordes: Journeyman League
« on: January 05, 2019, 10:57:48 PM »
JOURNEYMAN LEAGUE STRUCTURE

Introduction

All Journeyman events are designed to be easy for players of any skill level to participate in and track their results. You don’t need complicated tables or charts to run or play in a Journeyman event. All you need is an enthusiastic desire to destroy your foes and, if you choose to paint your newly acquired models, a bit of creativity.

Joining the Journeyman League

The concept of the Journeyman League is simple: Sign-up for the League by contacting ComicReaders Downtown, by posting on SaskGames, or by posting on the Warmachine Regina Facebook page.

League games start Wedneday, January 9, 2019 and the League runs until April 24, 2019. A final tournament will be run at the May 2019 Prairie Game Expo to wrap-up the League.

We require a minimum of 4 players for the Journeyman League.

There is no maximum number of players for the League, but only the Top 8 players will be able to participate in a special event at the end of the League, with other players being able to participate if someone from the Top 8 cannot participate.

League games are held at ComicReaders Downtown on Wednesday nights for the duration of the League, but League players can arrange to play at ComicReaders Downtown on other days, too, if it is convenient for the players and if space is available at ComicReaders Downtown. The more you play the more points you accumulate!

You can sign-up by responding to this post.

Army List

The composition of player army lists will be as follows:

Month 1 (January)
30 Points
Battlegroup, Units, Solos, Theme Forces Allowed

Month 2 (February)
45 Points
Battlegroup, Units, Solos, Theme Forces Allowed
Warcaster/Warlock Swap Allowed

Month 3 (March)
75 Points
Battlegroup, Units, Solos, Battle Engines, Theme Forces Allowed

Month 4 (April)
75 Points
Battlegroup, Units, Solos, Battle Engines, Theme Forces Allowed

At the start of each month after the first, when players create their new army list it must contain all the models/units used in their previous month's army list. The only exception to this rule is that at the onset of month four, players can change the warcaster or warlock they were using to a new warcaster or warlock but must use that new selection for the remainder of the month.

Model entries with variable point costs, such as units, can be adjusted each month. (For example, Charles adds a unit of Bane Knights to his army and plays them as a full-sized unit. In the next month, Charles must include Bane Knights in his army, but he can play them as a full-sized unit or a minimum-sized unit.)

Scenarios

Month 1 and 2 will use the "Trial by Fire" scenario.
Month 3 and 4 will use the "Journey's End" scenario.

You can find the details of these scenarios in the Privateer Press' Journeyman rules PDF.

BATTLE & BONUS POINTS
Players accumulate points through the duration of the League:

- Win (3 points)
- Tie (2 points)
- Loss (1 point)

There are a number of ways to earn and lose bonus points over the course of the League...
  • Creative Crusher - Any game played with a fully painted army without improper substitutes; +1 point
  • Destroyer  - The player with the most wins for the month is the Destroyer; +1 point
  • Battle Mad - The player with the most games played for the month; +1 point
  • Slayer of Champions - Win against the current Destroyer; +1 point
  • The Mentor – Taught / helped a player in the League who is new to Warmachine / Hordes; + 1 point per
  • Herald of Jerkdom - Players with complaints regarding his or her conduct within the month: Suspension*
*Multiple occurrences of this infraction will result in expulsion from the league and may affect eligibility from future ComicReaders Downtown events.

A player can play as many games each league week as he likes, but he cannot record a game against an opponent when the last game he played was against that same opponent.

PRIZES
Prizes are provided by ComicReaders Downtown; details of the prize will be given to the winners of each month. All the prizes will be randomly drawn. Number of entries will be determined by a player's number of games.  A player may only win one prize each month.

Overall standings only affect entry into the final League tournament (and bragging rights).

GAME SCHEDULE
Warmachine / Hordes players have been meeting at ComicReaders Downtown on Wednesday nights. Wednesday night will still be available for Warmachine / Hordes and this time can be used for League games. But players can meet at ComicReaders Downtown on other days, too, for League games, if space is available.

The store is generally not available: Friday nights due to other events in the store. Please call ComicReaders to see if there is any room in the store. Please use the Sask Games Forums (http://forums.saskgames.com/index.php?board=4.0) to find out if there are major events happening in order to help you schedule matches against other players in the League. You can use this thread to help contact other players in the Leauge or you can do so through the Warmachine Regina Facebook page.

When wanting to play games at the store, be mindful of store hours. Keep in mind how long it takes to set up and clean up a game, an hour or two may not be enough time to play a full game. Staff may ask players to leave when it is time to close the store without a time warning.

GAME PLAY/REPORTING
There is no maximum number of games you can play within a month of the League.

Report wins and losses along with any bonuses to ComicReaders Downtown via email (downtown@comicreaders.com) or through the forum thread or on the Warmachine Regina Facebook page.

We no longer require players to fill out the Sportsmanship Criteria cards, but this does not mean we will not be monitoring conduct. Depending on severity of the issue, a suspension may be given out without a warning. Please refer to the general Code of Conduct expected of players: http://forums.saskgames.com/index.php?topic=794.0

If you are spectating games, please refrain from helping players with strategy or influencing players’ decisions. If there is a rule error or clarity of a rule is under dispute, if you know the answer, refrain from simply telling the players what the rule is, but instead find evidence in the rulebook or FAQ / Errata.

THANKS
This League would not be possible without the dedication of ComicReaders' staff.
