For us, perfection would have been removing HTL and NR from the random pool once Pincer was drawn or rolled for.

I'm praying for medium density tables...and whilst on that topic how is the terrain situation looking?

Quick question, do you want ESC missions rolled before tournament as well?

What about first round pairings, i remember you don't want it done pre-event but no so sure.

With most of the missions needing players to walk around the tables is there any chance of getting the tables separated the way they are in the other systems? It's a pita having to walk around 3 tables to move a unit. Maybe I'm just lazy? :wink:

I'd like the ESC to use 3 of the ETC missions, as I'll be using the event for some last minute practice.

I think it adds a bit of fun to know who your first round opponents are, so I'd support announcing them in advance.

I like the way it was done a couple times before when the first round matches were announced the previous evening. It gives time to properly prepare the pairings and initiates the Team part of the ETC.

I also support the idea of having the same scenarios for the ESC as for the ETC. Makes ESC more relevant and there are also quite some people like myself that really need some practice before the event itself.

Our opinion on first round pairings for the ETC is that done ahead of time is fine but no more than a week before otherwise a lot of practice can be levied for that first round matchup.

I echo the thoughts on terrain, density and quality, and the need to walk around the tables given the missions played. Setting up the area with two tables together and then walkways between them and the next two tables is enough as you just need to walk around one side or the other. There doesn't need to be a walkway between every table but having them grouped into sets of three makes it much more difficult for the middle pairing!

Ok, so you can handle that yourselves with the refs. Or can just yank me from the 40k side and we can get it done :) .

You can trick your opponent into rubbing my head as a "good luck charm" then :)

Otherwise making the first pairings on Thursday evening is exactly what I proposed :)

Shouldnt the names of the actual mission we are going to play be added to draft and turn it into the 1.0 Rulespack?

OK, so when do we decide the ESC scenarios ? I'm all for drawing from the same scenarios as for the ETC.
