Rules Pac timeframe

Postby Trick08 » Fri Oct 20, 2017 1:30 am

Hi

Do we have a timeframe for when the rules pack will be up for voting? I ask because it is next to impossible to know how to start prepping before knowing what the rules governing list construction are and the mission/match-up process. Perhaps these two areas could be given priority?

Regards

Trick

I'll have a word with the rest of the committee and see if we can agree a target date. For the moment, I'd just say "soon"... and not necessarily in the BF sense. :wink:

cheers,

We could have it done fairly quickly but feel that it would be best to wait to see if any issues arise from the US Masters tournament Nov 18-19. That event is EW 1650 and should highlight any glaring issues with EW for V4.

So instead of releasing it now and have roughly a month for discussion before US Masters, you prefer not to do it and just waste this time?
We could have first draft discussed and playtested before Masters and then have a fix after the masters.
I think it would be way better, if we plan to approve a rulepack in 2017 =)

We are not having this discussion again, Committee has authority over their work.

The entire point of having the committee is to cut down discussions that does go on for literal months on the same topic until somebody just ends it (usually a chairman).

If they want to post their WIP, they can or may choose not to. But the sentiment of having a hard deadline for the tournament/vote pack is valid.


Suggestion:

End of November seems like a decent date, so DECEMBER 1st is the milestone that the committee must provide at least a draft of the vote pack. After that we would have 2 weeks of time for discussions and 2 weeks more for the vote. That way the rulespack would indeed be mostly done by 2018.

Maybe you should reconsider the tone of your comments? It appears to me to be quite negative given the ‘waste time’ comment. ;)

No offence mate, just can't imagine a reason to wait almost a month just to see tournament results

Then maybe you should recheck what was actually said because it was a bad tone at the least. Especially given your insistence that we aren’t doing anything for a month. We haven’t finalized anything yet, let alone an entire rules pack ;)

We said it could be done soon, not that it is done!!!

Ok, it's not ready, you need another month, no need to shout :D
Looks like I was too optimistic when I read that it would be done soon, not in BF sence
