Updated Tournament Rules

New Tournament rules have been announced, and there are some fairly big changes:

  • Acrylic Bomb and obstacle tokens are only tourney legal if from FFG – presumably a size concern?
  • A tournament round’s length varies depending on the
    type of round.

    • Swiss Rounds: 75 minutes each
    • Single Elimination Rounds (except Final): 75 minutes each
    • Final Single Elimination Round: 120 minutes
  • If both players have the same score at the end of a game, they must fire a Final Salvo to determine the winner. Draws are now eliminated due to “final salvo” which rewards having more attack dice(so swarms are now better than smaller squads)
  • Players now earn tournament points as follows:
    • Win = 1 tournament points
    • Loss = 0 tournament points

My concern is final salvo. Things like the Outrider and Punishing One Title become meaningless, and as for HWK-290?

I’ll be updating the maths behind the league tables to incorporate the changes.
