Tournament Legal Maps for 2016 HeroClix U.S. Nationals and World Championship Event
The HeroClix U.S. National Championship and World Championship events will be taking place at Origins Game Fair in Columbus, Ohio, June 15th-19th, 2016. In addition to all of the HeroClix premier events, there will be a variety of side events throughout the weekend for HeroClix and other WizKids games giving players a chance to win rare prizes and convention exclusives will be available for purchase—for more details visit the 2016 WizKids U.S. Nationals and World Championship announcement.
PLEASE NOTE: The HeroClix U.S. National Championships will only be open to players that qualified from the 2016 Regional Championship events.
For players in the 2016 HeroClix U.S Nationals and HeroClix World Championship events, there is a map menu for what maps you can use in these events. These tournament legal maps will be used in both the qualifier rounds and the final rounds. The 2016 HeroClix U.S. Nationals and World Championship Map Menu is listed below in the article.
When filling out their Army Sheet, players may indicate up to three (3) tournament legal maps that they may choose to use if and when they are given the option to choose a map for their game. When selecting a map for a round, players have the option of:
- Using the map that is on the table they are assigned (see Maps Provided by WizKids below). Players may choose either the front or the back face of the map that is already on their table. [NOTE: Players must use the map on the table they are assigned and may not take/swap maps from/with any nearby tables.]
- Selecting one of the tournament legal maps that they recorded on their Army Sheet. PLEASE NOTE: When recording a map option to list on the Army Sheet and when selecting maps for play, players may only list/select one playable side of a map and may only select the indicated side of the map.
Example: The double-sided map that was part of the Marvel HeroClix: Avengers Assemble set has two playable sides—Arcade’s Arena & Avenger’s Compound. If a player lists Arcade’s Arena on their Army Sheet (and does not have Avenger’s Compound listed), that player may only select to use the Arcade’s Arena side of the map—they may not use the side that was not listed on their Army Sheet (Avenger’s Compound).
If a player does not have any tournament legal maps listed on their Army Sheet, they may only select the front or back face of the map on their assigned table.
Maps Provided by WizKids
The maps on the tables will be a limited assortment of a random selection of maps from the Map Menu. WizKids does not guarantee to have any one specific map available for use. If a player wants to use a specific map from the map menu, they should bring that map with them to the event.
HeroClix Premium Maps
During each round of every HeroClix Qualifier or Championship, once players are seated, ten tables will be randomly selected and players at those tables will be given the opportunity to play on one of four HeroClix Premium Maps.
When players at these tables are selecting a map to play on, they may select to use the HeroClix Premium Map offered (see below under HeroClix Premium Maps in Map Menu), instead of choosing a normal map. If a HeroClix Premium Map is selected in this way, the player who wins the match gets to keep the HeroClix Premium Map. If the player selecting the map does not wish to choose the HeroClix Premium Map, they may still select a map from the maps listed on their Army Sheet or use either face of the map on their assigned table, but neither player will win the Premium Map that was offered.
