  2. Why couldn't it be 1850? Then it could have been good Adepticon practice

  3. It is a good prep for adepticon with just 150 more points. :)

  4. One question - regarding the "best per bracket", will we be looking at a primary/secondary/tertiary objective style a la NOVA missions? Or will there be some other way to determine the strongest win? It'd have to get fairly nitpicky to pick the best of... what... 4-5 wins per category?

    Normally I'm not interested in tournaments, but this one... this is something that I'd like to support one way or another... and having prizes in each tier is a far better incentive than the normal 'winner take all'.

    Sigh... guess I'll have to work on a new 2k list then, won't I?

  5. Yes you will Foodie! I look forward to you being a part. The missions are in process. I have written them but am waiting for the team to approve and make suggestions. There will be Primary, Secondary, and Teritiary Objectives like Nova that change each round. So no matter whether you win or loose, it all counts. The idea is that there is such thing as an ugly win. This ensures that every person is eligible for great prizes.

  6. I as well prefer a little lower than 2k, but that will not stop me from showing up and kicking butt. I am looking forward to this.

  13. I don't know if it is just me, but I tried on both of my computers, and there is just a blank where the link should be for paypal. I use firefox. I had to find another computer that had internet explorer to get it to work. Didn't know if there was anything you guys could do about that.

    To All,

    I have a confirmation that Adam Tricola FRom Deluxions of Grandeur is our first Internet Celebrity to confirm. I will do a write on him in the next few days. This is one of only 3 players to beat my wolves at the Nova out of 14 games.
