Now that Jens/Nimthar is posting here directly I’m thinking it puts some pressure on me to blog more. I think people will like his posts better anyway but I will try to make an effort to compete. Today I’m thinking about balance in the missions. And not the type of balance I think you are thinking…

So now I have had the chance to soak up the information from our Swedish tournament and write down my conlcusions. I thought to write down the idea, the set-up we used and the result. then I will try to modify that into a new set of rules for tournaments.

The guys on Orbital Bombardment has released their tournament pack. As they are highly placed in the Invasion tournaments (technically that can very well mean the best players in the world) their vision of a DZC tournament is very interesting and well worth investigating.

Let’s do that, shall we? This is my feedback on Orbital Bombardment’s tournament pack.

Kick ass tournament guys

With Sweden’s second tournament we are going to use a version of my original random mission generator. I will also include it in a Power point on two pages to make sure that if you can print on double sides you can have it on a single paper.

Mission to GothCon

Posted: 16 April, 2014 by egges in Dropzone commander, Missions

This is the mission we will ply 3k points at GothCon. as we will not play ourself I haven’t bothered to write it in a better way. But you can always give your feedback anyway!

We tried it to 2k points at Gubbspel galore and it worked really well. We have now upped the amount of objectives.

So Hawk wargames have now had a few torunaments where they have shown us how they think a tournament in DZC should be played. I therefor have done a very simple random mission generator to make sure pick up games are easy to agree on and forces people to consider a balanced army list based on the four basic missions in the book; Targets of opportunity, Recon, Encroachment and Land grab. By agreeing with your opponent that you will use this generator you will get  a mission as well as a possible variation on this mission as well with special rules – or it might just generate a basic mission without anything special. The point being that the players don’t know beforehand what to play and must have a force prepared to handle all type of missions. All they have to agree on is to use a standard army and an agree point limit. The mission can then be generated at the gaming location.
