Chairman's little helper

Postby TheMarko » Mon Jan 08, 2018 9:57 am

Guys!

Not wanting to leave everything for the last moment, it would be helpful to think a bit ahead, and make a list of things that we need/would like on the ETC in Zagreb. I mean things that directly impact games and which are required from orgas. For starters we need:

customised pairing cards with player name/country, nation played and company type - for sure;
pairing sleeves for attack/mobile/defend - quite possibly;
SEPARATED tables (as in 40k), (or at least three pairs of tables per row) with enough room between those - would be much appreciated;
.
.
.

Feel free to join in, add, discuss, remove . . . And after we have our final list of "demands" we can submit those to orgas through our chairman. I do not know if orgas follow FoW threads but I'm [-o< to the chairmen board that our dedicated chair is, and that he will be able to start asking for things even before the list is final while there is still time.

Asking for big things like table space too late will provide no result, and a lot of angry comments AFTER the ETC . . . So let's act AHEAD . . .

Cheers!

What do you mean by pairing sleeves? Are they sleeves for cards or sth totally dıfferent?

There is a major change in FoW 4th edition regarding deciding attackers and defenders. It is done using attack/mobile/defend orders. In order to translate this into "Team" part of ETC, we are currently discussing how to implement this. Since each team is limited to two of each orders, but interchangeable between games, the idea was to have sleeves with these marks on one side so pairing cards can be fitted inside before pairing. It seems as the most elegant way . . .
Mind You, this has not yet been decided on, it is just something proposed, and no one still has objected to it . . .

There won't be 30 teams. Given the rules version switch and the lack of interest in the new rules I doubt we even get 20 teams.

The sleeves have to be all the same color on the back side so as to not give away the actual army type placed in the pairing process at the time they are placed. The back side has to be neutral among all 6 cards to not tell the difference among any of the different armies the team will have.

As Tony said, back should be identical (all blue or green or red or ETC logo . . . whatever), and on the front side there should be three pairs of different markings per team. One pair for attack, one for defend and one for mobile.
