Icon Q

Postby Charles » Tue Mar 22, 2016 10:45 am

Hi Guys,

Icon is coming up on the 25 June so around the corner, so I need to know a few things:
-How many players (especially new players) can do 50 points painted ?
-If I am getting only experienced players how many can do 75 points ? Just thinking of doing something different for ICON for the regular Warmachine players.

At the moment it set at 35 points Painted, just stock standard Steamroller.

Definitely can (prefer to) do 50.

I can make 75, not sure how many can do that though.

Robert and I cap out at 50 painted and Robert is already limited at that level.

I don't mind 35 point games.
They're something terribly satisfying about personally murdering the enemy wizard-general. Wracking them is cathartic, like squeezing a great big stress ball, except you're strapping it to a massive metal religious icon and it's screaming. -cryptomancer

It was. We unfortunately the experienced a big decline in the game. I think there are max 3 or 4 players who plays regularly now. Some of them will probably play other systems at icon instead.

I will suggest you to go with whatever you find more appropriate for the event.

Charles, will this be a MK 2 tournament? I assume so but its worth checking :) new rules and faction decks will be out but it'll be very early

I really hope its MK3. Very unlikely to play if its MK2.

Who is going to want to regress for one tournament?

Trouble is, the timing sucks. Most people won't have cards yet.

That's the issue. It happens 2 weeks after the prerelease. I'll play regardless since it is icon and I want to support wmh tournaments

I got same problem, i want to play mk3, not mk2, but the faction decks only released that saturday, although rules are out. Can't play with mk2 cards in mk3 rules, certain things will be way too good

Then it might as well be a free event, just for fun, as no one will be taking it seriously, and pointless to build armies and think of tactics, as everything is obsolete
