As the HeroClix World Championship Tournament approaches we would like to go over with everyone our new tournament Army Sheet.
With the new Army Sheet available for download, players can print and fill their sheets out prior to an event. This will save players and judges time during setup so that events can start with ease and on time.
Let’s take a look at the sheet and see what information is needed…
Here we have the top portion of the Army Sheet. Inside each box you will add the following information:
Name: Your full name (Use your Legal Name as this info will be matched up to verify WES account as well as for any potential prizes)
WES Username: Your screen name on the WizKids Event System (If you do not have a WES account yet go to http://www.wizkidseventsystem.com/player-signup.php?IS_WRS=0 and sign up now)
Date: The date of the event that you are attending
Event: The title of the event (example: HeroClix World Championship Qualifier)
Theme: If your team is a Themed Team you would write the keyword used here.
Initiative Bonus: If you are played a Themed Team, the bonus you get for your roll to see who goes first. (+1 bonus to the roll for each character possessing the shared keyword on that player’s force)
TTPC Count: This is the number of Themed Team Probability Controls a player gets. (Number of characters on your force at the beginning of the game, up to 1 per 100 points of the game’s build total)
Next we have where you will enter your information for the characters and other items that will make up your Force.
For each game element (character on your force, object, resource, resource attachment, sideline, etc.) you will fill out the following information:
Set: An abbreviation of the set title (example: DC Justice League Trinity War as “JLTW” or Marvel Avengers Assembled as “AvA”).
#: The collector number for that game element in that set.
Name: The name of the game element.
Points: The number of points it costs to add the game element to your force. Note that this can be “0” for a number of things like standard objects, sideline elements, and many attachments. Still, if it’s something you are bringing to the game, it needs to be listed on the Army Sheet.
Sideline: If the character is part of your Sideline (3 game elements per 100 points of build total, up to 15 game elements).
Cumulative Total: As you add game elements to your force, maintain a running total of the point value, adding the points of the game element from this row to the total you calculated on the previous row. The last row will show your final build total (which should be equal to or less than the build total established for the tournament).
Assigned/Attached: If a Game Element starts attached to a character or other game element you will list it here. The point value may be 0 for these attachments (or may not) and, if there might be confusion as to which character it is assigned to, you can use the row number as a reference. (Example: for an entity you will write who it is attached to during force construction via a character name)
A couple of notes about filling out these sheets.
- Always add your Starting Force game elements first, then leaving a space or two list your Sideline.
- If you are using Standard Objects you should list them as such (write N/A for Set and collector #, then 0 for point cost).
- If a Resource Attachment requires a specific slot to be noted, write that slot the attachment begins in next to the Resource it is assigned to. (This can also be used when listing characters in your sideline for Team Bases that have specific slot numbers).
Here are a couple example Team Builds filled out.
With the sheets that have wrote their Starting forces out and then left room for their Sideline info after. Some venues may require additional information such as what game elements you are going to use from outside the game. An example would be like the additional constructs. You can always fill the sheet out and then add information that a Judge requires once you get to the venue.
Lastly, we have the tournament information.
As you can see it is Split into two separate groups Before and After Match. Each have a set of information that needs filled out.
Opponent’s Name: Who you are playing in each round of the tournament.
Verified Build Sign-off: This is showing that your opponent verified your team and acknowledges that you have a proper build using legal game elements for the format.
Win/Loss: Did you (the owner of the Army Sheet) win or lose against this opponent. Circle the W or the L, accordingly.
Victory Points: How many victory points you scored against this opponent.
Running Total: This is the cumulative of victory points for all rounds played including the match that just ended.
Verify Score Sign-off: Your opponent verifies that the Wins and Victory points are added correctly.
Lastly, all Army Sheets need to be signed—noting that in doing so you are not only verifying your team build but you are also acknowledging that you have read and agree to the disclaimer written at the bottom of the Army Sheet. A signature is required to participate in the tournament.
With that all out of the way, we can now talk about the functionality of the Army Sheet being available online. A player can print these sheets off (standard 8.5 by 11 inch paper) to take to a tournament in which they plan on attending, for example the WizKids HeroClix events held at Origins Game Fair, and be prepared. They can be used to fill out for events such as the World Championship Tournament or even used for side events such as Protect the Boss Scenario. You can even print out the sheet and fill out the top for Sealed events and be one step ahead and ready.
