Orion Cup 2017 is upon us, and this year's edition will be a 4-game tournament - turncoat-style, similar to the Belgium original!


LOCATION:
Ralph Thornton Community Centre
765 Queen St. East
Lower level
Toronto, ON M4M 1H3


SCHEDULE:
09:00 - 09:15 Registration
09:15 - 09:30 Setup and trash talk
09:30 - 11:30 Game 1
11:45 - 02:00 Game 2
02:00 - 03:00 Lunch break
03:00 - 05:00 Game 3
05:15 - 07:30 Game 4
07:30 - 08:00 Awards and closure


COST:
$8 for dice and awards
The RT community centre is hosting us completely free of charge. As a thank you, I would like to raise a bit of donation money. $5 to $10 per coach would be great.


STYLE:
This year’s Orion Cup will be mirror-style: coaches will swap teams, including rosters, skill choices etc. for games 2 and 4. In these games, you will face the very team you brought with you! Besides that, the tournament will be resurrection-style, with Swiss match-making and 2/1/0 points for wins, draws and losses.


TEAM BUILD:
Each coach receives 1100K gold crowns, which can be used to hire players, cheerleaders, assistant coaches, star players, a master chef, and purchase fan factors, rerolls, apothecaries and bribes. No other inducements are available.
According to their tier, teams will receive an additional amount of money to purchase skills for their players. No player can receive more than two skills, and no stat upgrades may be purchased. Normal skills cost 20K, double skills 30K.

Tier 1 teams receive 70K: Amazons, Chaos Dwarves, Dark Elves, Dwarves, Lizardmen, Norse, Orcs, Skaven, Undead, Wood Elves
Tier 2 teams receive 110K: Chaos, Chaos Pact, High Elves, Humans, Khemri, Necromantic, Nurgle, Pro Elves
Tier 3 teams receive 140K: Slann, Underworld, Vampires
Tier 4 teams receive 170K: Goblins, Halflings, Ogres


BONUS:
Each coach that submits the final roster to orioncup15@gmx.net before June 21st AND shows up before 9:15AM on Saturday will receive a free random "Miscellaneous mayhem" card to use once throughout the tournament.


CLARIFICATIONS:
We will be using CRP rules with only the following changes: Human catchers are 60K, coaches can “argue the call”, and Halfling treemen gain Timmmber.
There is no minimum number of players before purchasing star players, but you have to field at least 11 players. If both coaches field the same star player, both clones will play, but gain the skill "Disturbing Presence" for this match.
Important: all fatalities inflicted by blocks, fouls, secret weapons and crowd-surfs count towards total number of casualties (i.e. not failed dodges etc.).


NOTES:
The 2h and 2h15min time limits will be strictly enforced.
Please let me know in advance if you feel uncomfortable letting your opponent use your miniatures, and I will provide an alternative team for your mirror matches.


For your offline reading pleasure, there is also a handy PDF available. You can also find us on the Zuckerberg Book of Faces.

Everybody is welcome to wire, ship or personally deliver the money beforehand, but normally I just collect it at the day of the tournament.

Thank you to everybody that came out yesterday! Here are the complete results.

Grant85 and Natsirtdm tied for first place with three wins and a draw, but Grant had the better tiebreaker (opponent score). Dave followed on third. Most casualties went to Corsair321, and Genghis took home most touchdowns as well as best defense. Manpug only played one match and was therefore not eligible for the most potential award, which is now being devoured by Ethriel.

Nine different races were played (with Orcs and Slann represented three times each), and we collected $100 in donations for the community centre, which hosted us free of charge.

As mentioned before, we had four coaches who played the first time in a NAF tournament, and two coaches (Grant and me) who played their 24th race. As soon as the new NAF accounts are confirmed, I will be able to enter the data into the system. I will also post some photos soonish.

      Code:
#  Team                  Race        Coach      Score TD    CAS
1  Frogs of France       Slann       grant85    7     7-4    7-8
2  Deep Im-Pact          Chaos Pact  natsirtdm  7     8-3    4-7
3  Birdhat's Dirtlords   Goblins     Doomington 6     5-3   10-11
4  Gorgetown Pantry Cats Halfling    Genghis    6     9-3   12-10
5  Kermit's Killers      Slann       tlawson    4     6-4    8-11
6  Slann Dimas Bogeymen  Slann       NguTron    4     4-6   10-6
7  Kaos Khorne Flakes    Chaos       Stimme     4     4-1    9-4
8  Hamedan Tiger Rats    Skaven      Corsair321 3     4-7   13-6
9  Black Orc Knights     Orcs        BGG        3     3-4    6-7
10 Wasaga Waaagh!        Orcs        modedaala  2     4-5    3-6
11 Hexoatl Harriers      Lizardmen   arminius   2     2-7   12-11
12 Mousillon Marauders   Vampires    ethriel    0     2-9    4-10
13 Orcadorca             Orcs        Manpug     0     0-2    1-2

Thank you Alex for the great time! I had an excellent first foray into the NAF tournament scene with some very stiff competition. Really a big fan of the turncoat style too, though it hurt my brain quite a bit to figure out how to defend against my own team.
