Our goal was to really push the narrative elements with the new event, and that’s caused quite a shake-up to our traditional way we do scoring.

The event will place a an equal emphasis on Gameplay, Sportsmanship, Appearance, and Theme categories.

Each round players will play their battle, and determine the game results. They will also score their opponents on their Sportsmanship, Army Theme, and Army Appearance.
Each of the categories will be scored out of a possible 5 points.

With 5 rounds for the event, and 20 points available to each player in every round, the event will be scored out of a nice round 100 points.

Players will receive a scoring guideline sheet as detailed below which will serve as a reference for how we would like you to score your opponent and their army in each round.
