Time: 2hrs and 15 minutes

If, with one hour left, your game hasn’t started the second half yet, you and your opponent will get a timer (chess clock). Each coach will have 30 minutes time for all his turns left in the game.
If you’ve spent all your time and your opponent hasn’t, all you are allowed to do is put any prone players upright and unstun any players that are stunned. You are not allowed to take ANY other action than this.

If one or both coaches are late for the game, the referees will make note of your table number and who is late. If, with one hour left, the game hasn’t started the second half yet, the coach who was late will get 20 minutes instead of 30. His opponent will get 40 minutes instead of 30. If both players were late both players will get 30 minutes. If one of the players is not at his table after 30 minutes, the other player will win by default! If 2 hours and 15 minutes have passed or both players’ time has run out the game ends immediately.

POINTS & RANKINGS.
Results will go into two rankings: Team and Individual.

Team Ranking: Each game played by a team member will add up to the team ranking. The team ranking will be made up of the results from all the team members.
Win : 1 point
Draw : 1/2 point
Loss : 0 point
Tiebreaker: Net TD + Net Cas

Individual Ranking: We’ll also keep track of an individual ranking. Each game will add points (or none) to this ranking.
Win : 3 points
Draw : 1 point
Loss : 0 point
Tiebreaker: Net TD + Net Cas

It is here to stay, at least for WC 3 :P

I personally don't mind it, it gives Coaches/ Teams something to think about vs just spamming the best Tier 1 teams.

i put up a post for discussion
im simply of the mind all teams aren't created equal so why artificially try and make them better and if you do it should be recorded in the stats via tv difference or the like.

Don't disagree with you there. :)

I think it is due to trying to promote some variety. Giving some teams a small boost leads to more variety of opponents.

Lol, I almost posted that very question ;) .

Interesting to note though that wasn't based on Tiers but rather on second guessing your opponents. Case in point I think n 1-2 Wood Elf coacxhes meant they were getting cardsa as well.

I'd prefer a set system (though I enjoy the meta-gaming challenge of the VIC ATC) that means the teams who are generally recognised as Slow starers in TV or just genenrally use-impaired (Stunties :P ) get these advantages. :)

Not in previous two. But they have extended the NAF ranking boost to ASC and ATC so they may give it to the WC 3 this time around as well.

Thanks for the heads up, Hutch.

I wonder if the rules as published are correct, as the "handicap" for Tier 2 and Tier 3 teams looks the same. Perhaps it is a typo and they meant Tier 2 teams to get 3 normal skills and 1 doubles skill (not 4 normal skills and 1 doubles skill). Otherwise everyone will take Tier 2 teams, with an extra normal skill plus an extra doubles skill they are better than the Tier 1 teams IMO.

All the best.

The extra for the Tier 3 is yhe Stars and Bribes/ Chef as I read it.

But they may tweak the rules before the main event.

an aftertaste not a after taste :P

The only thing about that ruleset which i dont think worked was the "speed up" thing i put in play. It was first used on bill (surprise surprise) and he managed to play slower than ever.

My thing about tiers is that yes its a tournament organiser or a rule commitee deciding that this is the powerful team. I let the market decide. And the market decided that no one wanted to bring undead except for one guy. Deal with it orcboy.

PS- so who's thinking of going?
