Here is a list of everyone who got a list to me on time! (to be fair there were no late submissions, yet lol)

1. Gingerballs
2. Planes
3. Loreweaver
4. Dana
5. Matt G.
6. Gain
7. System Commander
8. superduexlol
9. Rhaveyn
10. Paz
11. Judchic

So it would appear that we have an odd number! If we do I will bring a spare army of some variety as a buy list.

*if for some reason you sent your list yesterday and you do not see it get in touch with me.

Since it looks like we might have an uneven number of players would you guys rather someone get a buy or would you rather play against my 1500 astro list?

A bye is a free win and all, but get league games for those!

If we played your list and lost to it will it affect our points for the  tournament? Our would it be a "so we dont stand there bored for an hour and a half" kinda thing to keep us busy?

Well there are three options I am deciding between.

1) you score the average of the round and don't have to play anyone (go get some food or something  Razz )

2) you play my buy list and you still score the average of the round (so you have something to do for the two hour round)

3) you play my buy list and the score you get is the score you get.

Three sounds good, as it gives the TO some League matches, too.

Sure, why not.
Sorry I'm competitive guys, just sucks in that regards that you would potentially be penalized in tournament score for "being the odd man out"

Also, you could still count a game towards league rounds, scored or not scored.

Either or, its not up to me *shrug*, just thinking to protect the person who would end up getting the buy round.

When I've had byes in swiss style, the bye plays the worst. Hence, has very little effect on overall.

Okie. Just bringing it up. You all have more XP at this than me here, just wondering really. I'll support whatever the call is Smile

Well really battle points make up 45 out of your total 155. So really the only impact it would have is for best general (and even then I doubt there is going to be a huge spread in points).

If 3 is the choice we are going with for the first round I will be using the composition scores for pairings after that I would probably be picking someone from the middle/bottom for a bye game. Although it will be against the list I plan on bringing to Astronomi-con Winnipeg.

Well, the way Ive always done it.. if I need to play a bye army, I always try to keep a couple points I try to keep in mind. Play something thats easy and fast to play and also very tournament friendly.

You've got a small experienced group here that have all played each other (except for you Bidyk!) and are pretty mellow, so you dont have to worry about "patrolling" the games.. but leaving yourself enough time to keep things tallied in between rounds and avoiding a long wrap up at the end is key.

If I had to play a round as a bye army, I always awarded the player I was going against a tie at the very least, but he would have to earn the win himself.. and as mentioned someone who more than likely lost the first round. I would never have a super strong list, or a super weak one... just average and of course try to move my turns quickly.

Whatever you choose though I'm sure will be a-ok.

Your model count is small enough that I'm sure it'll be fine.

Also a fun time to bring something you would never think of bringing before.

My Lord of the Warp list had a Helbrute, Termie Lord and Berserkers in Rhinos.. I was stoked to try it out! alas..

Alright, so tomorrow is the big day!

Just a reminder for everyone that if I asked you to make changes to your list (psychic disciplines and warlord traits were a big one) to include them on the list your bring tomorrow. Your physical list is worth up to 10 points! If you are doing something crazy to try and get the full 10/10 you only have to bring one for me to score and then extras can be normal for your opponents.

I will be bringing genestealers and gaunts for Brooding Menace and Judchic has volunteered to bring extra 'stealers and a couple of broodlords. So we should be good for round three.

Probably horribly off fluff, but I like it in that "its so corny I love it" sort of way
