NSW Open 2012

Post by Rabid_Bogscum »

NSW Open 2012 will be run as a 1 day 4 game tournament at the GOM church venue. St Pius x College Chatswood (35 Anderson Street, Chatswood NSW 2067)

Sat 20th October, 2012.

This will be the 3rd Selection Tournament for the NSW State team to attend Ausbowl Two in Adelaide in March 2013.

Schedule for the day is as follows:
08:45 09:00 Rego
09:00 11:15 Game 1
11:15 11:30 Break
11:30 13:45 Game 2
13:45 14:15 Lunch
14:15 16:30 Game 3
16:30 16:45 Break
16:45 19:00 Game 4
19:00 19:30 Prize giving and raffle draw

Where possible I will skip the break.. its just factored into the day to account for data entry etc.

****
Everyone will be using chess clocks. To help maintain the time schedules for the day, and as a fun learning curve for the community as its not something that has really been done much in Australia.
Each player will have 1 hr and 5 minutes for their turns. They are allowed to take more at the discretion of their opponent based on upcoming breaks, short time by their opponent etc. However should they reach their allotted time and their opponent wishes to enforce the time limit, the only actions that will be allowed will be a single action if they do not have the ball (this can be a blitz action, pass action etc). Otherwise they can only take actions with their ball carriers. Basically no blocks are allowed, but should they be carrying the ball they could run it in for a TD (using a blitz action if they prefer), or they could pass or handoff the ball, and then the new ball carrier can take an action.

****
The rules stated here are common to both the AusBowl State Championship 2 and the SA Open. These rules are based on the 2012 Southern Shrike Bowl rules.

Unless specifically modified below, both the Australian State Championship 2 and SA Open use the Blood Bowl Competition Rules Pack (CRP) which can be found here. In addition, the Slaan, Chaos Pact and Underworld teams are allowed as found here.

Team Creation
Coaches are given 1,150,000 gold pieces to create their team. This may be spent on players, rerolls, fan factor, coaching staff and inducements with the following requirements:
All gold must be spent.
There must be a minimum of 11 players in the team.
All inducements are available as per pages 49 to 50 of the CRP, although only one Star Player may be purchased for any "non-stunty" team.
"Stunty" teams may include up to two Star Players. "Stunty" teams include the following: Goblins, Halflings, Ogres, Underworld (with no Skaven players), Lizardmen (with no Saurus players).
If two teams play against one another with the same Star Player it is assumed that the Star's "identical twin" has shown up to play for one of the teams. Both may retain their purchased Star.

Each team may have one of the following skill packages applied to it, subject to the requirements below:

Federation Star Package: 7 skills (each player may be given only one skill, Stars may not be upgraded)

Union Jack Package: 4 skills and 2 double skills (each player may be given only one skill, Stars may not be upgraded)

Yellow Sun, Black Sky, Red Soil Package: 4 skills, 1 double skill and either +1MA or +1AV (each player may be given only one skill or stat upgrade, only players with a position of 0-4 or greater (eg, 0-12, 0-16) may be upgraded, Stars may not be upgraded).

Red Southern Cross Package: 4 skills and +1AG (each player may be given only one skill or stat upgrade, only players with a position of 0-4 or greater (eg, 0-12, 0-16) may be upgraded, Stars may not be upgraded).

White Southern Cross Package: 4 skills and +1ST (each player may be given only one skill or stat upgrade, only players with a position of 0-4 or greater (eg, 0-12, 0-16) may be upgraded, Stars may not be upgraded).


The AusBowl State Championship 2 and SA Open are resurrection tournaments, meaning that teams are returned to their beginning state at the end of each game. There is, therefore, no need to keep track of Star Player Points (SPPs).

*****
The trophies are just as good as the ones from the first NSW Open so if you want a paper weight to be proud of this is the tournament to attend.

Cost is $25.

*****

The following is the Breakdown of Scoring for the NSW Open Tournament.

Score A)
Will Consist of points solely from Wins/Draws/Losses with the following:

Win = 100 Points
Draw = 50 Points
Loss = 10 Points

Score B)
Will consist of bonus points combined with points from Score A and includes the following:

Winning by 2 or more TDs = 5 Points
Keeping Opponent Scoreless = 5 Points
Losing by 1 TD = 5 Points
Each TD = 1 Point
Each Cas = 1 Point

Opponents Scores are also tabulated and are drawn from their Score B points.

For Final results the first determinant will be coaches Score A points. i.e. the bonus points are essentially stripped away for final rankings. The tiebreaker for coaches on equal Score A points will be their Opponents Scores (derived from Score B points) added to their own Score B points.

e.g. Rabid defeats One Eye 3-0 with Casualties 1-4.
Rabid: 100 (Score A), 114 (Score B)
One Eye: 10 (Score A) 14 (Score B)

Rabid is blind drunk but still draws with Olaf 0-0 with Casualties 3-2
Rabid: 50 (Score A), 58 (Score B)
Olaf: 50 (Score A), 57 (Score B)

I've been investigating the coaches and I think I'd come down on the Friday night and then go home on the Saturday night (if it's on a saturday that is).

When will we know the final date? If it's on the Saturday I'm keen to book myself in ;D
