Re: Chairmen's meetings summaries.

I have concerns over “transfer for 8 people to be offered as part of ticket” Is this free/optional. A lot of teams will be arriving before the event/will not be going direct to the venue. So a transfer direct to the venue is of little use to the majority. So we are stuck paying for something as an i...

Re: [Captains] [T9A] Vote for scenarios and deployment - Results

Seems pretty clear to me?

The usual system for such ETC is to eliminate the least popular at each stage and assign their votes to the next choice untill one has majority

Therefor C wins by 9 votes to 8 by Germany’s decidng vote.

Seems pretty straight forward

Re: Request for scenario / deployment vote options

Objectives I think a good halfway measure is to each round have pairings 1-4 play objective A and pairings 5-8 play objective B Rotate the objectives each round, with each objective used twice - in different sets of pairings. That way at the end the team has played 8 games of each scenario (just lik...

Re: The 9th age rules version for Zagreb 2018

I’d don’t see why we’d be playing anything other than the most current version of 2.0

The final version of which is due to be realised in May when it will become “official” ie not a Beta, and all 1.3 pdfs removed from the website. There are to my knowledge no updates after that till after the ETC

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 o...

I completely agree Especially in the case of Unasked for comments from spectators I think the refs probably need to use their common sense and look at each incident separately. Unsolicited isolated comments from unassociated can then be let off. Where as comments from coaches can be punished properl...

The other situations you mention have options that have an impact. WIthout spears you have Parry, the Sky Sloops actually has another option (that it sucks isn't really something you can take into account IMO). I don't see how you can claim the option of having shields doesn't make an impact. When ...

Re: 2017 ETC T9A List Corrections

We prefer players to be a littl outside wysywig in terms of weapon/armour options than allowing changes to legal lists. So that means two possible outcomes 1) -1 penalty and have spears. Wysiwyg. 2) enforced have to use hand weapons. Wysiwyg incorrect but no penalty as enforced by refs? Question no...

Team England will abstain from voting Because we have realised we are in the same boat. And have no spears listed on our army list To the point where we didn't even realise we could have hand weapon and shield. And are now having a debate about as that's an option do we even want spears! :lol: :lol:...

Re: 2017 ETC T9A List Corrections

Either way your list was illegal

A 1 BP penalty for an illegal list is a very small price to pay - and one which should have little/no consequence

So I wouldn't be complaining too much. Especially as some captains were complaining for big penalties for illegal lists

Re: 2017 ETC T9A List Corrections

I think the referees have been very fair, and maybe somewhat lenient 1 BP penalty to let you have the lore of your choice, or sky reapers on your sloops etc is not a big price to pay - it certainly could have been a lot worse Likewise with Russia, you cannot take the totem because doing so makes the...
