How do we know Sean's games are even real? He won't come play in the Saskatoon group (gas is as cheap as it's been in a decade and still too much) and we've never even seen these other fellows that he coincidentally just signed up. Hmmm.

I have a fellow I'd like to introduce to the league. His name is Farty Big Balls. I will pay his fees, we will only play in my house, and since he's a terrible player, I'll win every game - which is cool since we play twice a night. Oh ya - I am painted he is not.

I should be at the top of both lists in a week! Very Happy

There was no restrictions on humans or even living creatures. Neither of my cats play very well and i beat the tar out of my lamp. EPIC wins on all accounts.

Is fully painted going to matter for extra points again?

No, for now we're going to keep it simple. Once people get back in the groove and playing lots of games and get their armies back up to snuff we may reinstate it.

The only way to get "bonus" points is to play a secondary objective. You get 2 points for winning the secondary objective. But be careful, if you lose the secondary objective (even if you win the game) you lose 2 points.

Are you guys playing with alot of secondary objectives yet? because we are not.

We play on a 6'x4' table still, with an average of 8 pieces of terrain of different sizes and so far just Battle Line @ 2400pts

What do you mean 50 points to our Army Lists?

How did i lose 1 whole average for just losing one game? Just honestly curious at this point, there is another unrecorded game for last week. that Brian's lazy ass was supose to post a battle report for. Should have just not had the game i knew VC werent up to the task Wink

Brian (Lizards) vs Ryen (WoC) - Major Victory for Brian.

Which is one of the incentives to painting. Seems a shame Brian can't be rewarded for his efforts.

I figure the main incentive for painting is that your army doesn't look like ass on the table.

Your average is your total points divided by your games played.  Sean you have 42 points and 6 games played.  42/6=7.  Last update you had 3 games played and 24 points 24/3=8.

What do you mean 50 points to our Army Lists?

Yes.  Something new we're trying out.  It's good to be the king.

Brian (Lizards) vs Ryen (WoC) - Major Victory for Brian.

If it isn't in the league reporting thread it doesn't get counted.

Brian needs no motivation to paint i assure you, his Necrons are being built and painted faster then they are being purchased.

Hrm... damn so if i had no games last week i would be a DOUBLE KING! - totally worth, incentive to have less games Wink

Not so, the average is in place to even the playing field for the guys who aren't able to play as many games. As you seem to play 3 or 4 games a week you'll find that your average will even out and give you a pretty good idea as to how you stack up against your opponents (the ones you play anyway). Others who are only able to get in a game or two a month can conceivably stack up some wins and get a good average by the end although that isn't all that likely. The total points standing is there to encourage people to play games. If you quit playing games to preserve your average you are doing it wrong. We will use both standings to seed the playoffs.

I know Nathan, we (i mean me) argue this every League, im just being greedy and want BOTH spots... More points... MORE... which im not super enthusiastic about, i honestly LOVE the idea of getting a little bit more points, extra banner or chaff unit or magic item. but what i dont like is i have a comfortable 2500 ish points for all my army, so if i keep kicking ass (which you ladies know i will) then im going to have to go buy more figs !! bwhaha i joke.

The extra points are not cumulative.  Only 50 points total for this week.  Next week when I update the standings whoever is in first place in each standings will get the bonus.

And we are playing 2400 points for the league. The extra 50 points does not count toward percentages (so you don't need to have 612.5 points of core, etc) but it cannot break any rules so if you want a 50 point magic banner on a unit they have to be able to take a 50 point magic banner, you can't use it to get extra magic items above the max. allowable magic item points on a character etc.

Ha ok, we were thinking different things I thought u meant like that campaign u wete trying to run before. Like I got 50 points to add to my army so id have 2450. Thought that seemed goofy.

Wow I got a sigh out of the Nathan! Must mean im doing something right, that man is usually a rock to my stupid endless questions

You do get 50 points to add to your army. Any games you play between today (Monday February 29) and Sunday March 6 you can have an army totalling 2450 points.

Like I said before, count your army percentages as if you had a 2400 point list (so you have to have at least 600 points of core, you can't go over 600 points of rare, you can't have more than 1200 points of heroes or 840 points of lords or 1200 points of characters total).

The extra 50 points must also follow the unit rules as in you can't take more guys than the maximum, you can't give a magic banner to a unit that can't take one or a 50 point banner to a unit that can only take a 25 point banner. You can't give a character an extra magic item if that item would exceed the maximum magical item points for that character or break any other rules such as 2 magic weapons etc.

You can't use the 50 points to take more than the maximum duplicate unit limits either.

At 11:59pm March 6 you are no longer entitled to the extra 50 points. I will update the standings at some point on March 7 and award the 50 points to the new leaders for the week.

Is that clear enough? Or is there still some loophole that needs closing or anything not fully explained?

You see how easy it is Nathan? Forget it, I promised to be good.

Anyways, about the painting; Nathan, you and I, and others, have a sense of pride putting painted figs on the table. But, we also know that there are many who don't have quite the same interest or incentive. Seems odd, in a league, to put an army on the table that you spent hundreds of hours on and get no reward for it other than personal. I swear on a stack of bibles I'm not busting balls, I'm posting here for feedback on others thoughts. Seems like people are terrified to voice opinions now and that's a sad thing. We can leave it alone for this league but we should push the painting part of the hobby as everyone benefits.

Sean, I was talking about Brian. I know he's a mad painter and I give him huge props for that. That guy a passionate hobbyist and we need more of those. I'm talking about gamers that just slap models together and for 5 years I have to play against grey plastic.
