Hey All,

It's that time again that I start making some noise about the World Cup coming in 2019 and sorting out people keen to travel from Aus and NZ to play IPB Image


Tracking this mostly on Ausbowl (BB Forum for AUS and NZ) but will be keeping this up to date as well. PLease let me know if any questions and or feel free to PM me smile.gif .

To those who don't know already know the time and location of the NAF World Cup is decided as below:

World Cup Website and Facebook Event Page

*Dornbirn, Austria, Oct 4th-6th 2019

Last few times we've had 3 teams of (6) Coaches. I think you'll find that any one of them would heartily recommend the experience as one of the best large gaming opportunities around. IPB Image

Another large venue so there should hopefully not be an issue getting whoever wants to go a spot but I'm keen to get our names in early anyway, due to the long distances that we here in AUS and NZ will need to travel and the understandable (and personally recommended) course to tie it into an European Holiday.

Schedule:
October 4, 2018 - Early-bird registration start
January 7,2019 - Registration start
March 30, 2019 - Registration and Hotel Booking End
August 16, 2019 - Deadline to Submit rosters


I'll keep a running list of interested parties and proposed teams so anyone who is without 5 other coaches can organise a spot. I know Team Wombat is keen to fly once more! IPB Image . The Kiwis are proposing at least 1x full team as well. So let the statements of interest commence IPB Image .

Confirmed Teams:
Team Wombat:
Fnord23 (Cpt for 4th time)

RULES
1 Rosters
All rosters for the World Cup have to be submitted by August 16th, 2019 latest. The rosters will be put online on the NAF WC IV webpage. Error corrections are permitted until August 30th, 2019. After this date no changes will be permitted. For squads, the captain will submit all rosters of his squad, individual sign-ups have to submit their rosters by themselves.

2 Division of Races (Tiers)
In order to reduce the unbalancing between the different races the World Cup will be divide the races into four tiers.

Tier 1: Amazons, Bretonnians, Chaos Dwarves, Dark Elves, Dwarves, Lizardmen, Norse, Orcs, Skaven, Undead, Wood Elves
Tier 2: Chaos Renegades, Elf Union, High Elves, Humans, Khemri, Necromantic
Tier 3: Daemons of Khorne, Chaos, Nurgle’s Rotters, Slann, Underworld Denizens, Vampires
Tier 4: Goblins, Halflings, Ogres
3 Team Creation
Teams at the World Cup will be built and will gain improvements (additional skills or stat upgrades) according to their placement in the tier system above. The composition of all teams and all improvements to be taken must be submitted before the tournament.

Team Building
Coaches must spend a minimum of 1,100,000 gold pieces when building their team. When building your team, you may buy:

At least 11 standard roster players before any star player
0-8 Re-Rolls
Assistant coaches
Cheerleaders
0-1 Apothecary or Igor, depending on race
0-9 Fan Factor
Inducements. The cost will be as following and will count for all 9 games:
0-2 Bloodweiser Kegs for each 50 kgp
0-3 Bribes for each 100 kgp, for Goblins only for each 50 kgp
0-1 Masterchef for 300 kgp, for Halflings only 100 kgp
0-2 NAF-approved star players for their regular cost
Wizards, (in)famous coaching staff and/or Special Play Cards are explicitly not allowed at the World Cup

Additional Cash
Each team receives additional funding based on their tier. Starting cash can be used for team building (as above) or used to buy skills or a mixture of both. Cash for days 2 and 3 can only be spent on skills in advance of those days.

Tier Starting Cash Day 2 Day 3
(gold pieces) (before game 4) (before game 7)
1 1,160,000 40,000 40,000
2 1,200,000 50,000 40,000
3 1,250,000 50,000 40,000
4 1,250,000 70,000 40,000

A ‘normal’ skill costs 20 kgp
A ‘double’ skill costs 30 kgp
Tiers 1-3 are limited to one double skill during the tournament
Tier 4 may have more than one double skill
Your roster can have one player that has two additional skills. Both skills must be normal skills and the second skill has a cost of 30,000 gold pieces. These skills can be added at different times in the event.
Tier 4 may buy a single stat upgrade. This cannot be combined with any other additional skill.
+ MA / AV costs 40,000 gold pieces,
+ AG 50,000 gold pieces and
+ ST 60,000 gold pieces.
Star players may not receive additional skills or stat upgrades
All gold left unspent each day is lost, and does not carry over to subsequent days. If you choose to not spend all of your gold, the organizing committee thanks you for your contribution to our bar tab!

4 Squads
For better differentiation of the term “team”, the word “team” only refers to the miniature team of each coach. The group of coaches who compete as a unit in the World Cup are referred to with the word “squad”.

Each squad consists of 6-7 coaches, where it is recommended that each coach should play at least 3 games. During a game only 6 coaches will compete against another squad. All coaches within a squad must be playing a different race, i.e. a squad cannot include more than one Wood Elf team, or more than one Undead team, etc.

If a squad has 7 coaches registered, the non-playing coach is not allowed to support his mates with advice during game play. The non-playing coach may also be asked by the organizers to act as a substitute during the games when he is not scheduled to play on his original squad.

The captain has to announce his line-up for each gaming day on the evening before until 19.00 (7 p.m.).

Any drop-outs and their consequences during the tournament will be decided by the referees and/or the organizers on a case-by-case basis. The ruling will be final without a chance of appeal.

5 Pairings
The first matchups will be drawn randomly before the tournament.

Each squad will be paired with another squad based on the overall ranking according to the Swiss ladder system for games 2-9.

The ranking within a squad will be determined by their individual performance during the tournament. For squads with 7 coaches, the non-playing coach will receive no scoring points, touchdowns or casualties during the round, but will be treated the same way as the playing coaches when the ranking is determined for the next round.

The ranking of squads or coaches within a squad for the next round will be determined in the following order:

Squad Points
Coach Points
Net touchdowns
Net casualties
Electronic coin toss (aka random)
6 How to win the Tournament (Scoring & Tiebreaker)
Squad
For squad ranking the following point system will be used:

Each squad gains “Squad Points” (SP) each round

Win: 2 Points
Tie: 1 Points
Loss: 0 Points
A squad wins a match if the sum of Coach Points (CP) is greater than the opponent. The Coach Points are not included in the Squad Points.

For determining the final standing and crowning the World Champion Squad the following order will be applied:

Squad Points
Total Tier of squad *)
Opponent score
Head-to-head performance to determine the World Champion
Coach Points of the entire squad
Net touchdowns
Net casualties
Public coin toss to determine the World Champion (for ranking: electronic coin toss)
*) To determine the total tier of each squad the numbers of each tier of the used races during a round will be summed up.

Single Player
For the individual ranking the following system will be used:

Each coach will get “Coach Points” (CP) each round

Win: 5 Points
Tie: 2 Points
Loss: 0 Points
Concession: -5 Points **)
**) A concession will be counted for touchdowns and casualties as 2:0 each for the opponent.

For determining the final standing and crowning the World Champion Coach the following order will be applied:

Coach Points
Opponent score
Head-to-head performance to determine the World Champion
Net touchdowns
Net casualties
Public coin toss to determine the World Champion (for ranking: electronic coin toss)

7 Teams
For team description please see offical rules (BB2016, DZ1, DZ2) and the NAF website.


8 Inducements
For inducement description please see offical rules (BB2016, DZ1, DZ2).


9 Additional Notes
Skill Rings
In order to have consistency throughout the entire tournament and in order to avoid miscommunication about the skills of each player, the organizer will provide special Base-Rings in different colors to all participants. The usage of these base-rings will be mandatory for every additional skill and they have to be used according of a specific color chart (will be published in November 2018).
