BDD 163 – Tournament Soft Scores

Tournament Soft Scores

In this episode I talk about the things I have learned about Soft Scores from the Masters weekend.

I address the areas that I found were the biggest problems at the event

  • Painting
  • List Submission
  • Sportsmanship
  • Time Keeping

I have a number of ideas that I will be including in the rulespack for the 2013 Masters and I have a year to tweek them until they are perfect.  I wanted to take the chance to air these issues so the community can help with the creation of that rules pack.

My goal for the Masters is for it to be ‘Exhibition Warhammer’ and for that to happen I need to accurate and strict with the scoring in the rules pack.

To further discuss this I have started a thread on the Bad Dice Forums

Daily Episode 43 – UK Tournament Scoring Systems

I talk about the different types of tournament scoring systems commonly used in the UK.  Win Loss Draw, 20-Nil and the Maelstrom Victory Points based system.  Over the years we have had a bunch of requests for this topic on teh main show and i’m sure I have spoken about them seperatly in different shows, but I thought I would talk about them all together and give my thoughts on the pros and cons of each.
