This tournament will be a “Relaxed Tier” tournament.

Tournaments at this level are welcoming to all players, regardless of experience level.

Players are encouraged to help each other improve and learn, so long as it does not significantly disrupt the game. The focus is on creating a fun and friendly environment

Standard Tournament scoring system will be used.

Win 3 point
Draw 1 point
Loss 0 points

We will be doing Swiss rounds with the number of rounds determined by the number of players (to a maximum of 4 rounds).  There will be NO top cut for this tournament. 

We are limiting the event to 24 players.

The tournament will use the STANDARD FORMAT tournament - Each player is required to upload their squad to the Tabletop.To event page before checking in and to have a copy of their list for their opponent to review. (A squad list on your portable device is acceptable for your opponent)

Squads must contain no more than 20 squad points and conform to all of the rules laid down in the core rulebook, rules reference, and tournament rules PDF.

Players will also require all tokens, templates, and cards they will need during the day. Proxies are not allowed at the competitive level of play. 

The expected schedule for this event is as follows:

10:00 - 10:30 Sign in.
10:35 - 10:45 Announcement of 1st round pairings and set up time.
10:45 - Start of Round 1
A planned break after Round 2

**Number of rounds will be determined by the number of players with a minimum of three rounds - there will be no top cut for this event**
