Top Two Players will win TPN "Legion" T-shirts to wear while proving who really runs So-Cal when it comes to Legion.
Welcome to The inaugural SoCal Invitational. With our outstanding community of Legion players, we're excited to participate and can't wait to see which two players head out to represent the best of The Perky Nerd.
Our season will consist of a typical round robin regular season with a leaderboard based on wins and loses (and strength of schedule in the event of ties)
If we can run a second season prior to late October, and there's interest, we will.
Games will be scheduled for 10AM on Saturdays. They'll be pre-determined match-ups. In the event of a conflict for the weekend, so long as both players agree, games can be schedule for other days. That said, any player that requests a change that can not be accommodated by opposing player -- and game is not played/made up will result in a loss for the player requesting a game change.
Pre-arranged tables will be set up every Friday night with table designation posted on Fbook. Tables will be marked and held for tournament play. (yes, there will still be tables available for casual play for those not participating.)
We will need 5 players to commit in order to ensure the 4 week minimum run so please sign up right away if you're looking to give it a shot!
*In an ideal world, we would send the top Imperial and Rebel player. I suppose that's worthy of discussion still - but more than likely sending the top players based on W/L regardless of faction is likely the best outcome.
**As of now lists are based on current releases and regular list-building rules. This will likely hold true for the entire first season. If we were to run a 2nd season, we could discuss adding challenging elements such as "if you win a game, you must play with entirely new commander(s) in your next game" - and variants like that to really really show who's got playing chops.
Yes, we expect a highly competitive atmosphere of top lists and game playing but the continued excellence of class and sportsmanship that's become a staple of our Burbank community of gamers. This event is absolutely open to new players. We have players of all skillsets and mindsets playing so feel free to jump in! Few weeks of league play will make you better in no time.
