ATC 2018 - Initial Musings

Post by D_Arquebus »

Hey All,

Just a notice. I am currently confirming venue and date for Ausbowl Team Champs 2018! :)

At this point I am aiming for Late April or during May to avoid clashes with existing tournaments and give time for people to book flights and accommodation once the Venue and Date is locked in.

Soon after the announcement of Dates and Venue I will also be publishing the rules for team creation, etc.

It will remain a team event, 3 player teams, with the existing Player Match Up system for individual team rubbers. For those new to the ATC event the teams are wholly up to the players to organise amongst themselves. So no qualifying required. If you can organise a team of friends or people you know then great. If not I will have a random player tally and we can form some teams from players keen to participate and meet new people in the Oz/ NZ BB scene :) .

I'm leaning towards 6 games split 4 games Sat and 2 Games Sun to allow coaches to get away for flights etc in Sunday evening.

Watch this space.

Can each coach configure the skills (and players) on their BB team to their liking then?

So effectively each coach has 3 rosters, 1 for each race taken by their ATC team that they use each time they run that particular race?

Rosters are locked, but each coach isn't tied to a roster. Nice.

Question on the ordering of this - Captains do their dice off and allocate teams against each other, then how is the allocation of coaches to teams handled (if outside of "playing the team I brought with me")?

Does one team allocate their teams to coaches then the other? Does this get done at the same time? I'm only thinking about the higher tables (not that I'll be on them) and gaming who plays who - I'm sure there's reason to do so at some level.

Lol, of all the power gamers in all the places I've posted this... it was you! :P

I'm leaning to either a) Simultaneous or b) in reverse of order that teams were picked/ put up....

What can I say, the concept is great but I know team captains like boggy and dazed ( ;) )are going to wait until their opponents are at a table with a team before they allocate the who to who, and that takes some of the well meaning intent out of it for me.

Best I mention it before someone else abuses it ;D

Just get the coaches to write the coach/team combo on a piece of paper then simultaneously swap with the opposing captain. Simple and quick.

Pretty sure you can take 3 teams in any tier (so you could take three tier 1 teams, or one team from each of the 3 tiers). The tier just determines how many skills the team gets.
