BattleCON League 2 begins Monday, December 9th! Please have fun and good luck to everyone!




BattleCON League 2 Information & Rules

General Rules
1. First and foremost, let's have some fun. Please treat the moderators and other participants with the same respect that you would expect. Keep in mind that, while we have sweet prizes this league, it is just a game and we all love BattleCON.

2. If a player does not submit an attack pair to a mod in 3 days, they will be given 1 strike. If a player accumulates 3 strikes, that player is disqualified and taken out of the league. The first available sub in order of priority will be chosen to take their place. If the disqualified player was in the middle of a match at the time of disqualification, the sub will take over for the disqualified player from the point of disqualification. If there are no available subs and a disqualification takes place, an active player(s) from the league will fill in for the disqualified player to help complete all needed matches.The 3 day, 3 strike disqualification rule will be relieved for the Christmas and New Year's weeks.

3. BattleCON League 2 will use a 1 on 1 duel format with the Special Actions variant.

4. All Special Actions (Finisher, Cancel, Pulse) are legal.

5. We are using all of the updated Bases, Styles and Special Actions found in Devastation and Extended/Updated War (including the new Burst).

6. If a War character is chosen for a match, the mods will be in contact with Brad and other mods to get updated cards for that character. The updated styles and unique base for the selected War character will be GM'ed to each participant in the match to ensure everyone is on the same page.

7. If a rules question comes up during a match, the moderator of the match has the final say in a ruling. Moderators will consult one another to determine a final ruling if needed.

A quick note: Please, please take into consideration that these leagues last 2-3 months. If you will not be able to update at least once daily and for a few months, please let me know so I can take you off of the list. We had two people drop out last league and it ruined some of the experience.

Tournament Layout
Players will be randomly split up into 4 groups of 4. This will be determined by a dice roll here on BGG and will be posted. The top 2 finishers in each group will advance to the single elimination playoff rounds. The winner of Group A will play the runner-up of Group B. The winner of Group D will play the runner-up of Group C. The winner of Group B will play the runner-up of Group D. The winner of Group C will play the runner-up of Group A. The following bracket provided by Phyr shows the single elimination layout:



The single elimination rounds will continue until the final 2 players are left. They will participate in the championship match to determine the winner of BattleCON League 2. A third place match will take place between the losers of games E and F. The top 3 will advance to fight Brad Talton in a boss match format!

Matches will be played as they become available. If a Group has completed all of their games and can start some of the single elimination matches with another Group, that will be allowed to help speed up the overall timeframe of the league.

Group Assignment
As far as assigning people into Groups, I was going to roll a 1d4 for each player.

1 = Group A or higher
2 = Group B or higher
3 = Group C or higher
4 = Group D of higher (then wrap around if Groups are full)

The players will be assigned into the corresponding Group that the dice result shows unless that Group is full. If the Group is full, they will go up to the next Group or Groups until there is an open slot in that Group.

So, dorktron rolls a 3 for Group C. Group C already has 4 people, so he checks Group D for an open slot. Group D also has 4 people, so he checks Group A. Group A has an open slot and he is assigned to that Group.


Tie-breaker Process
If there is a tie in wins within a Group, life differential from all matches played will be compared to determine seeding and advancement. If a tie still exists, the player will the least amount of total beats played will advance. If a tie still exists, a coin toss will be used to determine who advances. NOTE: When a player is KO'd, they cannot drop below 0 life points when calculating life differential.

If there is a tie in life remaining at the end of 15 beats during a match, the player with the lower life total at the end of the next beat will be eliminated. If a tie in life remaining still exists at the end of the beat, another beat is played.

Character Selection
Character selection will be a Select 3, Reveal, Pick 1 method. Players will GM their 3 character selections to their moderator. Their moderator will then reveal the 3 characters for each player. At that point, the players will GM their final character selection for the duel.

NOTE: Mirror matches are allowed in the league as voted by the participants.

We have officially been sponsored by Brad Talton and Level 99 Games!

Brad has graciously allowed us to offer PnP updates for the War characters that are chosen during this league to moderators and participants! Additionally, Brad is supplying prizes to the top 3 finishers in the league:

1st Place gets the BattleCON artbook
2nd Place gets a BattleCON playmat
3rd Place gets the Strikers expansion


But wait, there's more...

Brad will be a guest opponent to the top 3 finalists and will duel the players in a boss match as Twilight Magdelina or another boss of his choosing! If the finalists beat him, they will get a new commemorative alternate art costume for the character of their choosing.

Battlers, please give a huge "Thank you!" to Brad Talton and Level 99 Games! He is a true class act.

Just playing this time, maybe modding, but no organization, please. PIN - E1856

EDIT: And for me, we should mix.

Re: Show of hands: Who would be interested in BattleCON League 2?
Me, me, me! I wanto play and moderate.

I think we should play with both War and Devastation. I don't have the revised files for War for pnp and I'm waiting for Brad to unlock them on BC:O. But that shouldn't stop us from playing with both.

Re: Show of hands: Who would be interested in BattleCON League 2?
I'd be interested in giving it a shot, but I've not played in a play by forum or online game before. Will I need to download anything special to take part, or is it all done via PM and posts from the mod?

My BCO PIN is C4091.

I think it would be fun to include both War and Devestation, but it might be harder on people who only bought Devastation and don't have a physical/PnP copy of War to reference.

Would we be including the alt versions of the Devastation characters as well?

Alright, I'm down. I have been watching the forums and have an idea how to mod. I'm willing to give it a try as well as play, so long as people are willing to bare with my beginner's mistakes.

I'm interested in playing, and would mod. PIN: J1134

Mixing in War is okay with me, but only if we play the revised versions of War characters (so, once Extended arrives at people's homes). Or, failing that, we could just mix in the War characters who haven't changed.

Count me in (playing and modding).

While I myself don't have a problem mixing War and Devastation I can see it being an issue for others.

Wow, quite a response already!

I would personally like to mix revised War and Devastation (once we all get our copies). Is there anyone here that couldn't do that?

I will update the master list on the first post.

I do not have the War characters yet, so I would at the very least need to see the reference card or something similar for any such characters that I go against.

I suppose we would need to ask Brad if we could provide you with the reference card for the selected War character. Or...you could sign up to become a playtester and have access to those cards.

Sorry Jason, I missed this.

We actually use a system of carrier pigeons so you will need to purchase one at the local market.

Nah, we just do everything through PM.

No, just standard versions. The alts aren't totally balanced for competitive play.

You know what, I've been lurking the PBF battles long enough that I think I'm ready for a fight or two. Sign me up, although I don't think I'm ready to mod just yet.

Here's the link to get you started. There's a few hoops to jump through, but it's honestly not that bad.

No worries. As long as we're not using hollowed-out coconuts carried by swallows I should be fine.

I didn't get involved on the Level 99 playtest forums until recently, so that's good to know regarding balance of alt characters for Devastation. I've been playing alt Clinhyde and was feeling a bit dense because I wind up near dead from my own boosts before my opponent even lands a hit on me.

Re: Show of hands: Who would be interested in BattleCON League 2?
I'd love to but I'm not sure if I can, it depends on when this would start. I pre-ordered Devastation instead of backing it so my copy won't show up for like a month.

But yeah, I'd love to play (not mod) if I can.

Re: Show of hands: Who would be interested in BattleCON League 2?
I'm not 100% sure. I am a playtester, but it's possible that the latest version of War on the playtesting forums is not 100% the same as the version that's shipping out. And I don't have original War either.

Re: Show of hands: Who would be interested in BattleCON League 2?
I am excited to get in for this one, count me in!

PIN = H1112

Devastation and War characters please, though the only issue I can see is if you do not own the latest version of a War character. It would be like playing without all the info.

Though mind you, I plan on catching up and purchasing the PnP for the War cast.

I can also help moderate. I would probably stick to the tried and true forum format for a league.
