Re: ETC 2018 - Age of Sigmar

LOL!!! :lol: :lol: AoS is dead in Europe as far as tournaments are concerned (other than the UK I think). It does better than 9th Age in Australia because it is a very simple and relaxed laid-back hobby-focused game, which fits in perfectly with the avg aussie wargamer. Europeans like to compete ser...

Re: Pairings and new objectives.

It would be absurd to play the 2018 ETC in August with a set of rules released in December of 2016. v2.0 is scheduled to be released (as a non-Beta version) months before the ETC... not to mention that its bloody awesome!! :mrgreen:

Re: Pairings and new objectives.

But if you practice all objectives equally AND you design your lists to be able to compete all objectives then this should not be a problem. And that is exactly what a team that wants to win the ETC should be doing anyway. Also, just like there might be rounds where you face a team who's meta suits ...

Re: Pairings and new objectives.

I wasnt aware that certain countries were better at certain secondary objectives than others... that sounds silly tbh; it would be like saying that a certain country is better at playing a certain deployment type than others. Nope... if you go to the ETC you practice all armies and all secondary obj...

Re: Pairings and new objectives.

I was actually going to suggest that now that we have the same number of objectives as number of rounds... that each round 1 objective is played by everyone. So round 1 for example, every single game played in all tables uses Hold the Centre, and so on. This guarantees that every army plays every ob...
