Golden Gauntlet returns for its third instalment. GGUK 2017/18 is here!

 

Image

 
There are a few rules changes from last year, mainly around there no longer being “Classic” tournaments. There are now four classifications of tournament based on number of NAF players. More points are awarded at larger tournaments.

The increase in scores for placings is no longer exponential. Also you can no longer score for both Most Touchdowns / Most Casualties and your placing at the same event.

Golden Gauntlet was an official NAF tournament series last year and hopes this will continue.


Rules:

All UK NAF coaches are eligible to score GGUK points at every UK NAF tournament which qualifies to award a NAF trophy as per NAF guidelines

From the 2017 updated sanctioning guidelines:

NAF Trophies may be awarded to the winner of any sanctioned tournament so long as it meets minimum attendance requirement... [if it has] 4 rounds or more, 12 coaches are required; if it has 3 rounds or fewer, 24 coaches are required.

Golden Gauntlet points are scored as per the table below. The intention is to award pure gaming results but also other aspects of the wider hobby which are traditionally recognised at tournaments with prizes. There is no limit to the number of tournaments coaches can score in.

Image

In the event of tied total scores, the coach with the highest tournament placing(s) will be placed highest.

A few footnotes on the additional trophies:

-Hopefully all tournaments will recognise Best Painted, Stunty Cup, Most Touchdowns and Most Casualties in some way. No prize, trophy or certificate is necessary. Even if it’s no more than lip service here on TFF.

-Coaches who score for their final placing and for Most Touchdowns or Most Casualties at a single tournament will only register a single score, whichever is higher e.g. a player who finished 18th at a 100+ event (8 points) and also won Most Touchdowns (10 points) will score 10 points only.

-Best Painted Duel will be awarded at the NAF Championship only



The highest points scorer at the end of the year will be awarded the Golden Gauntlet trophy at NAFC 2018 on the May Day bank holiday weekend.

Good luck to everyone!

I'll place an asterisk next to the Young Blood contenders after Valen has drawn up his list (see Young Blood thread).

Thanks for your help specifically Jim. Couldn't seem to neatly mesh the exponential placing scores with increased scores based on (objective) tournament size. Think the system above works well. Let's give it a go.

Runs from the first post-NAFC tournament to the NAFC.
