The Rules


(These rules are tentative and subject to change, pending participant input)


NOTE: All participants must be on the latest release of JTCS (v2.02) available at Matrixgames.com. If you own it, updates are available under "my subscriptions" on your page.

All optional rules on, except Extreme Assault (EA) and Variable Visibility (VV). We will not be using scenarios that call for either.

Non-Combatants:

  1. Any non-combatant may be removed from the map. Non-combat units are any units that cannot fire and/or assault., i.e. unarmed trucks, wagons, horses. The idea here is less fodder to worry about = potentially faster turn rate = faster tournament.
  2. Non-combat transport units cannot be used to surround, block movement, block line of sight, draw opportunity fire, or perform "recon" duties.
  3. Dismounted horses should be treated as non-combat transports.

Halftracks:
  1. Use them however you like. They can block, they can assault, as long as they have those capabilities.
  2. Armed trucks (with fire and assault values) are treated as halftracks.

The Bonner Rule:
Play the way Eric would play. He never used "gamey" tactics. He always played fair. He always enjoyed the experience and the camaraderie he felt towards his opponent, more than a win. To Eric, a ladder stat was just not that important. Have fun.

All players, please make note. This is a tournament and it will be greatly appreciated by all players involved to keep moving it forward. Your turn rate is of the upmost importance. We all realize that Real Life (RL) takes precedence over any gaming. However, a lot of you have background games going on at the time of this tournament behind the scenes and we all understand and appreciate that. When this tournament starts we ask that any game turn received back from an opponent within this tournament take precedence over the other games you are playing. In other words, tournament game turns should be played first in order to keep this tourney going. We make this suggestion in order to keep this tournament moving forward and fun for all. There is a big field of players out there and a lot of games within the first few rounds that need to get completed timely. Its going to be a great Campaign Series tournament and I wish fun and luck to all!

Regards and thank you for your support and understanding!!

Good question about versions. I'm assuming everyone is using 2.02, that's what I use. Its the latest.

Yes, has to be the latest Matrix version. No excuse not to be. The current version is 2.02. You can get it by logging in to Matrix Games, going to your page and clicking on "my subscriptions".

I might make a John Given rule. He has to play blindfolded. Maybe just if he plays me, though.  Smile

Hi David. Helmet Wink 

Lol, I don't consider myself to be good at this, I just do everything in my power to avoid casualties, which affects my score...and stuff.  And besides, I'm rusty! Tank6

Mm, love these awesome emoji's. MG 

This tourney ought to rock!
