Greetings to one and all!
Today we are announcing sweeping changes to the Renegade 40k Format.
The big picture changes are:
1. Primary Missions have been altered to be scored Progressively.
2. Sadly Table Quarters as a Primary Mission has been retired.
3. We now offer a new Primary Mission, “Supply Grab”
4. A reduction in points for army construction back to 1650 Points with 3 Detachments.
The reduction comes about again thanks to data collected at our last event.
“Naturally” completed games are those that get through Battle Round(Game Turn) 6 or Tabled/Conceded.
A total of 288 games were played (96 players, 6 games each).
60% of games (173) played FAILED to complete “naturally”.
25% Completed (72 Games) by Tabled/Conceded.
15% Completed (41 Games) by ending on Battle Round 6.
This was played at 2000 Points, and with 3 Detachments.
Compared to the previous year’s (7th Ed) Completed games of 90+% this represents a huge step back in game play for players. As such we have looked to returning to lower points to allow players to complete more games in less time and enjoy more free time between rounds without impacting the tournament schedule or trying to encourage players to play “faster” either through penalties or the use of a timing device.
More to come later today on the Missions themselves and how to score them. So stay tuned!
