1250Points? Is this the standart Point value?

PostWed Aug 08, 2018 8:49 am

As in the title is 1250 the standard game value? It seems to me a bit low.
I thought 1500 point were standart?


Is there any source for this?

thx

Well the standard is usually set by tournaments those where 1500P see the old Invasion ones. But you can play whatever you fancy.


Edit: I was wrongfully thinking we were talking about DZC instead of DFC for DFC Gauntlet is correct 1250P is the standard.

Most organizers found 1500 points took too long to play out for standard tournement arrangements that could be done in a single day.

Even with several streamlining attempts, most games at that size take too long to run for an effective tournament. As a result 1250 evolved into the "standard".

Hopefully, in the future further streamlining, alternate scenarios, and deployment rules will allow for larger games in a shorter timeframe (for the average player).

Alternatively, see if your group can potentially run a tournament or such over multiple days and go nuts and do 2500 point mega battles!

I quit like the 1500 Points size. It is perfect to fit enough stuff from big to small, but not too much.

I don't Play the game tournament wise. It is more like a hole Sataturday evening with eventually to much beer and Pizza.

It is bombastically cineastic and fun to play.....


This is the way i enjoy it the most. I was just curios. I heard that 1250 will be standart in the future....which could have a effect on the Points costs of the fleets, maybe..

Tournament at 1250 is for 2day events.
As each game runs for 3 h.
999pts is used for a single days event.
Unless you have a timer on and a gunho TO.

I like to give player's time. Where there to have fun after all!
