|ACC VIII 25-26 August 2012 Southampton
The Albion Coast Cup is back. Ring the bells and bring the maidens!
The Albion Coast Cup is a tournament like no other. Rich in history the ACC has run for a full nine years* but, for a second year only, we are proud to present a progression tournament. As a progression tournament the ACC is still NAF-ranked but each coach has a team to develop and build rather than a fixed roster of everliving players. The ACC is the only progression tournament in the UK so, well, get it while its hot
*apart from "the year that wasnt", courtesy of a Mr E. Rob.
Remember that this is a little different to other events so please take careful note of the rules. The tournament will be run according to the CRP with the following exceptions, ammendments and clarifications:
Starting Treasury: 1,050,000
Slann, Underworld, Chaos Pact rosters included.
No Inducements may be purchased as part of your starting roster.
All Inducements allowed (including Special Play Cards) and to be chosen at the start of each game. Petty Cash may be used for Inducements.
SPPs are earned according to the rulebook with the exception of the MVP which is chosen rather than awarded to a random player.
All skill rolls must be made immeadiately after the game in the presence of your opponent (+stats and doubles are allowed).
All purchases, journeymen, and skills must be selected after each game and before the start of the next round.
Any Ogre teams will be allowed to allocate ONE extra MVP to a player of their choice prior to the first game.
Points will be awarded as follows:
Win: 3 Points
Draw: 1 Point
Loss: 0 Points
Each round will be drawn according to the Swiss format with no reference to TDs, CAS or TV
If two or more coaches are tied for first place at the end of the final game then opponent score will be used to find final placings.
It is expected that you will be able to provide appropriate miniatures for any stars that you may induce (or at least proxies that distinguish them from regular team members)
It would be sensible to ensure you bring a good number of skill rings.
Starting Roosters will be required in advance of The ACC so that provision can be made for effecient printing of updated rosters in between rounds.
Venue, costs, and stuff...
We can confirm the venue is The Mitre as per last year. Tickets will be £20 and include two lunches and brilliant prizes. All entrants must be registered with the NAF but NAF Membership is included in the ticket price for any brand new members.
Please send entry fees to email@example.com or shove money into our hands if thats more convenient.
We look forward to seeing you there
