TTS Draft Tournament: The Objective Hex Open
Updated: Aug 20, 2020
The Objective Hex Open
The premise of this tournament is to try a new format for selecting war bands. Instead of choosing four and dropping three, we will draft champions prior to each round.
Here is the procedure for setting up a round for this tournament:
Step 1: Both players roll five Godtear dice, re-rolling any ties. The player with the higher result chooses to be the FIRST or SECOND player.
Step 2: The FIRST player selects a champion and its follower unit to be part of their war band. This champion is no longer available for the SECOND player to select. Then the SECOND player chooses a champion its follower unit to be part of the SECOND player's war band which then becomes unavailable for the FIRST player to select. Repeat this until both players have a warband of three unique champions and their follower units.
Step 3: The FIRST player to select a champion is also the FIRST player on Turn 1, deploying and taking the plot phase first as normal.
Step 4: Play the game normally.
Registration closes August 14th. Players will register on BattleLadder. Please note that BattleLadder is not set up for a draft format, so leave your champion selections blank.
The event begins on August 15th, players having one week to play each round
The event will be run on Battle Ladder, as will registration.
Games must be played via Tabletop Simulator. This is because TTS is the only venue available in which all champions may be selected.
If a player drops from the tournament after they have been paired for a round, their current opponent will receive a bye. Byes will be seeded as 6-0 wins.
