300 or 350 points for Derby?

Post by Ross Figurepainting on Fri Jul 17, 2015 10:00 am

There seems to be fans of both points systems and a poll seems fairest way to decide.  If 350 points gets most votes there will be a follow up poll to decide if it will be 1+ commands or 2+ commands.

Poll will run for 10 days.

Please only vote if you are attending.

All entries need to be confirmed and paid for with the organiser ASAP
Email Richard Waring - competition@worldwargaming.co.uk


If you don't confirm soon we might lose our tables.

Hi Ross - could I suggest not complicating things by having a second poll? no-one as far as I am aware has suggested 350 with 1 command - I have not heard of that being played, and the "normal" 350 format is 2+ commands

Hi Ross,

Voted 350pts. My understanding of the original idea of the 350 point format in a tournament, was that it should be a minimum of two commands. A single command would be too large to break within the normal tournament time frame. The extra points, and minimum two commands, makes more interesting play possibilities, while keeping the games short.

Hi All

I've voted 300pts. It may be a bit controversial but I really don't understand what the extra 50pts and the command make, apart from some armies become very brittle.

Cheers

Classic - currently standing at 4 votes each! Still assume this means that we have 8 players who have paid up for the tournament so good news will all be going ahead and we have the tables reserved - can we sweet talk the Derby organiser so we are not near the side door and getting all the drafts!

I am looking forward to either 300 or 350 points games - not played for a while so have to get some practice games in. As has already been commented on IF we do decide on 350 then was assuming this would be at the standard competition rules so 2 commands plus.

Although remember last year at 350 points, Fraser had his 3 commands with one command under charismatic general coming in as a flank attack - oh sorry hope I have not given away the planned strategy for this year????

One of the reasons I like 350 is it gives much more scope for flank marches. If it stays at 300 I would expect some Hussites to appear

Na - Paul is just a Klutz as far as the net is concerned - he just missed the button. I'll explain it to him next time he is here

Hardly an issue - I'm sure Ross wont overrule a clear 5-4 majority. More of an issue is we may have an odd number of players ?? That assumes everyone comming has voted of course

Clearly not everyone has voted - Ross has 13 entries with Paul making 14 (phew- even numbers)

Looking at the names we seem to be missing some stalwart Welsh and Scots so hopefully they may be just late entries

Yep, 4 to 4 seemed light, besides the idea of not everyone probably being a member of this forum anyway.

4-4 split! Typical Smile
Now if it had been 26% in favour of one of the options we could have called it a mandate.
Based on the comments above it seems 5-4 in favour of 350 pts with 2 commands.
Sorry Lorenzo, you will have to put an extra case in the luggage.
Sorry I missed all the comments. The notifications havent been coming through for some reason and Roger gave me a nudge.
I will get everything updated and confirmed asap.

Lorenzo - please confirm yourself and however many flying with you
