Come on down, bring your friends, and join us this Sunday November 10, 2019 at 11am (please arrive by 10:30am so registration does not get in the way of the actual event), where players are invited to bring a 300 point Modern Age team with an extra limitation.
This year, ROC has recently been experimenting with its format so this event gets that special treatment.
The format for the event will be Constructed using ROC’s new Pauper rules!
Players will compete using teams consisting solely of modern-age pieces (as defined by WIN). As per the WizKids Comprehensive Tournament Rules, teams will be built at or below 300 points. Furthermore, ALL pieces (including pieces on a player's sideline) will fall into one of the following categories:
Common Rarity – often referred to as “white tabs,” these pieces contain their set symbol within a painted white tab on their bases. On their character cards, there will bea white background behind the character portrait. These pieces also will typically have the lowest collector numbers in any given set. This includes “Sidekick Night” player pieces (Thor, Iron Man, Captain America), but NOT the prize pieces.
Uncommon Rarity - often referred to as “green tabs,” these pieces contain their set symbol within a painted green tab on their bases. On their character cards, there will be a green background behind the character portrait.
Equipment (of common or uncommon rarity) -equipment of the appropriate rarity isallowed in Pauper Circuit play. Legal equipment can be identified by both the appropriate colored tab containing the set symbol on the piece's base, as well as the appropriate colored background behind the portrait on the equipment card.
ID Cards (of common or uncommon rarity) – ID cards of the appropriate rarity are allowed in Pauper Circuit play. Legal ID cards can be identified by a white tab containing both the set symbol and collector's number on top left-hand corner of the back of the card. (NOTE: In order to use and ID card, the character being called in must also be legal according to Pauper Circuit guidelines)
Fast Forces and Starter Set Pieces – modern-age pieces included in Fast Forces or Starter sets may be used in Pauper Circuit play. These sets typically contain six dialed figures, and may also include additional game elements, such as equipment, ID cards, or bystanders. Any game elements included in these sets are allowed in Pauper Circuitplay.
WWE Pieces – all WWE pieces are legal for Pauper Circuit play (Yes, they will be totally legal!).
During force construction, all characters become Unique Characters per the Heroclix Rulebook. Specifically:
“You may not include more than one copy of a specific Unique character (with the same name, set symbol, and collector's number)between your starting force and starting sideline.”
PAY ATTENTION! The following game elements are NOT legal in Pauper Circuit play:
Ban List Pieces – there may be, at the discretion of WizKids, ROC, or the Pauper Circuit Council, pieces that are found to be disruptive to the balance of the game. These pieces will be placed on the Ban List, and not be legal for Pauper Circuit play.
Figures used in Pauper Circuit events may be repainted, but not modified, as per the WizKids rules. Modifications include, but are not limited to, replacing the figure on the base, reposing the figure on the base, or adding scenic elements, such as walls or grass, to the base of the miniature. Repainted figures must still represent the character presented on the character dial.
Rounds for this event will be strictly timed (Last Action announcements will end a round).
This event will have two parts. The first will be a round robin format where all players will be matched against each other for 3 rounds.
The second will be based on the first, where the top eight players from the round robin series will be re-seeded against each other according to their win-lose ranking.
Bring down your Modern Age Pauper team, tokens (action and object), dice, related markers, and Modern Age maps (see if you can bring down the cash entry fee, too)!
