March Madness @ Gatehouse Games

Come One Come all...

This Friday at Gatehouse games we will be taking sign-ups for the March Madness League.  This will be a double-elimination league.  The point value for the games will be 1200 points using the standard force organization chart.

A double-elimination league is a type of elimination competition in which a participant ceases to be eligible to win the tournament's championship upon having lost two games or matches. 

A double-elimination tournament is broken into two sets of brackets, the Winners Bracket and Losers Bracket (W and L Brackets for short; also sometimes Upper Bracket and Lower Bracket, respectively). After the first round, the winners proceed into the W Bracket and the losers proceed into the L Bracket. The W Bracket is conducted in the same manner as a single-elimination tournament, except of course that the losers of each round "drop down" into the L Bracket.
you get the idea....

Friday Night @ Gatehouse Games will be the League night until a Champion is found.  A few rules:
  • 3 colors and based/flock
  • The League buy-in will be 10$ to be given to the store owner at sign-up.
  • First round will be randomly seeded
  • Scenarios will be provided every Friday till completion.
  • First match on March 18th.
  • Games will consist of 1200 point army's.
    • You may change your army list from round to round.
    • You may not switch armies from round to round.
  • Prizes will be 70/30 split in store credit for 1st and 2nd.
  • Consolation prizes for the bottom two.
  • Judges from Club Snake Eyes will be on hand every Friday to help dispute rules.
If you are scheduled to play and you miss league night you have till next Wednesday to make up the match with your opponent.  The game MUST be played at the store. Failure to do so will result in a loss and movement to the lower bracket or elimination.

We will go over the rules and a sign-up will be posted starting this Friday.  Be there, or the kitten gets it....
