Tournament Format

The tournament will consist of two days of gaming. The first day (Saturday) will be used to separate opponents into 8 Person “Pods” for Sunday’s games.

The Top 8 players from Saturdays games (Based on Match Score with strength of schedule and battle points used as tie breakers) will fight in the championship “Pod” on Sunday.  With each following “Pod” having it’s own Mini-Tournament, with prizes handed out to the winners in each “Pod”.

Match Scoring

Games will be scored on Battle Points with a Maximum of 11 points possible.

Each game will consist of 1 Primary Objective worth 4 Battle Points, the Renegade Maelstrom worth 4 Battle Points, and 3 Tertiary Objectives each worth 1 Battle Point for a total of 11 Battle Points a game. The winner of a game is the player who scores the most Battle Points in a game.

Battle Points will be tracked in order to assist with pairings and tie breaking, but WILL be used in your overall score.


First round pairings will be randomly assigned, for each subsequent round we will use a Swiss Escalation format. This will help to ensure that players who continuously do well will be paired against each other in subsequent rounds leading to stronger competition throughout the event.

Hobbyist Scoring

Throughout the tournament judges will be coming around to rank peoples hobbyist score. Each player will get ranked independently by 2 different Floor Judges and our Special Guest Judge. These scores will then be averaged for the players final Hobbyist Score.

There will be a maximum of 40 Hobbyist points available.
