Pedantic suggestion: why not make teams cost more points the higher they are placed in the Tiers, then give teams a maximum of 5 points to spend rather than a minimum?

So.....
Tier 1 would be 4 points
Tier 2 would be 3 points
Tier 3 would be 2 points
Tier 4 would be 1 points

Each player has 5 points, or 20 points per team of 4?

That works :D

Darkson's way works just fine, no need to confuse things by inverting Tiers to Points! But yeah a team tiers needed to be reached is good. I'm worth 4 tiers :P

so, assuming I can run this here's the current thinking:

1. 3-man teams - though I'd like to make it 4-man, I'm not sure I could get enough coaches who'd be willing to risk not playing for a whole weekend. 3-man means I'd only need 2 "volunteers".

2. Each player must spend 5+points on two races - races cannot be duplicated across the team.

3. Coaches would need to decide before the tournament starts which will be their Saturday team.


The other idea up for consideration is a two-man tourney, where the players would swap. the two rosters on day 2.



Now, before you start going out and making up your teams, there's no guarentee that this will actually happen. I need to look into alternaive venue (if needed), look at the calender to see when would be the best time, and see aboout scoring software, whether that's Score or something else.

I would try chasing Nipples, Pippy, or Geoff.

Dates would be 23rd/24th November 2013, as that's the only weekend that fits with mine and moody's rota (can't book holiday in that month, it's already taken).

Will ask about hall availability - if it's free, then I'll look at getting it organised.
And PM sent to Nippy, Pippy and Podfrey re: scoring software.

Well, it's a long way off, but count me in. I'm sure I could get a team of 3 together. In fact I could probably put together a few teams :)

This sounds like a great idea - a team event with different teams Saturday and Sunday, (or not). I'd prefer not to swap teams - I'm a bit OCD about other people playing with minis. That said, the idea of using 2 teams in a weekend really appeals.

Are we going for 3 games per day, or can we have a 3/4 split - that would force players to select one team for the majority of the games and to have a true 2nd choice for the 3 2nd day.

Either way, it sounds great and I would like to attend.

Chris

Yep a 2nd ARBBL of any sort would be good, team tournament would be great. Last tournament i went to was STABB and barring the bunker bowl theres not been or gonna be anything near me until the next ARBBL.

P.S took the family to Andover last weekend, that'll teach em :wink:
