Welp, Tournament-Pack is here, but there are still several open questions:
- What Patch will be the tournament played on (I assume 204.2)
- How are tables determined (with the Paring or randomised?)
- Asklander book? Currently there is nothing which would forbid playing it, a clear statement is necessary here (and honestly I doubt that anybody would play them even if they would be allowed, cause the lack of time till list deadline)

IMPORTANT:

the Errate for 0.204.2 has been included in the pack as a "book" we use at ETC as well.

It corrects some stupid errors in BRB and AB´s and just makes sure that no really weird situation occur at ETC due to that mistakes.


Plz inform your teams and make sure they take it into account for list building as well.

Did I understand correctly that the objectives are going to be drawn without replacement? (each objective being played exactly once)
Are you going to draw the objectives at the same time that a round pairing is announced, or at the start of the round?

Regards,
Dimitri

Small update to the ref-pack. Bold is new:

Zitat
Typo mistakes: Wrong wording of a unit, miss an equipment or option but is paid for (and is the only viable option). Some examples: Don´t indicate the size of the unit, paid for an option that can only be that option. Spelling errors are excluded. Penalty: 0.2 BP per typo mistakes of the team. Rounding all fractions down.
Spelling errors are excluded. Penalty: 0.2 BP per typo mistakes of the team. Rounding all fractions down.




Rounding up (as it used to be) was unnecessarily harsh and was partially implemented due to misunderstanding between judges. This now means that the first 4 typos are penalty-free.
Spelling mistakes are excluded from what counts as typo-mistakes. Because it is close to impossible to enforce in a fair way, and it gives an unfair advantage to native speakers.
