This Casual Tier league event will provide a friendly & learning environment where players will be playtesting Season 4 content. Players of all experience levels are welcome to join. This event uses the Playtest Format: You will be using cards from the Season 4 Playtest, which may be updated during league play. All games will be played online using either the Vassal Skirmish module or the Tabletop Simulator Skirmish module.
- Players will be assigned to play one game a week until the week of November 2nd, 2020. This assignment will be based on Swiss tournament pairings.
- Players may sign up after the league starts and get assigned a pairing.
- Players may opt-out of being assigned a pairing temporarily or for the remainder of the league. Please inform the Event Organizer if you need to stop receiving pairings.
- Players are encouraged to play additional games outside of their weekly assigned game. Players can arrange these games with other league members on the IACP Discord Server.
- Players who submit Testing League surveys & game logs for at least 6 games that are assigned to them will be eligible to receive a special Heroic Effort alt-art card from IA Command. Contact the Event Organizer once you have submitted your 6th set of surveys & game logs.
- Pairings are announced each Monday at noon Pacific Daylight Time. Assigned pairings will be displayed on the Tabletop.to event page. When the pairings are live, an announcement will be made on the IACP Discord Server.
- When pairings are announced, contact your opponent promptly.
- If you cannot play and your opponent can, assign your opponent the win.
- If neither player can play, report this ASAP to the Event Organizer.
Order of Play
- A map & mission will be announced with the pairings. Use this map & mission for your assigned game. When playing a league game you arranged with another player, both players should choose a map & mission from the Map & Mission Pool below.
