Well then, lets make Tigers illegal, they are for the weak, and then we can make KV tanks illegal, those are for the weak. And why not make Komissars illegal, those are for the weak as well. M10's, for the weak. Air, for the weak. Brits and Night attack, for the weak.

We could get rid of a lot of rules and have a much quicker tournament. Just roll a single die, odd you win, even your opponent wins. Smile

What about re-thinking certain rules....e.g. slow traverse?

I find heroes to be a bit cheeky and turns it into a super hero game, we could play hero clicks instead?

But I know some people enjoy them and thats whats important anyways, so I have no qualms playin against it.

One warrior in particular, Rommel, can screw up game scores and a player can get win a game 7:0.

I was just making the point that if we throw some rules out, then people will want others thrown out as well.

I never use the heroes, but in talking with Phil about fielding SS troops and other ways to legally field a force like it you can use heroes and standard German units to accomplish the same effect.

Remer for instance could be used as Kurt Meyer when fielding an SS Aufklarungs for MW 42 Germans. Either in a motorcycle unit or in 250 or 251 HT's; depending on whether it is 42 or 43 and even depending on which month.

I never liked the point restrictions when you could instead field a couple of special characters that could accomplish the same thing.

I lobbied for a long time for generic characters for each country instead of the horrible caricatures that happened.

Yep, i hate the character idea too. Oh well, cant do much about it.

The no heroes rule is very common in almost every tournament so I included it here. Like I said, if people want it the otherway round we can change it.

We had a great tournament. 10 people played on 5 tables, and another 10 or more expressed a lot of interest and came in to check it out.

Congratulations to:

Sean Curl - Best Overall

Bill Nolan - Best Sport and second for Best Overall

Al New - Best General and third for Best Overall

Andre Knapp - Best Painted/Historical for Luftwaffefeldkompanie.

Hey Sean and everyone,

Thanks for playing and having a great tournament. It sounds like everything went well. And I wanted to thank Battlefront for the calendars. They are still crazy busy with the move, but found us some extra goodies for the tournament.

Thanks all.

John at Merlyn's
