Chicagoland December Game
« on: 20 November 2022, 22:27:07 »
Hello,

The annual December "Kill the agents" will be on Sunday, December 11th.

The game is at Games Plus.
(Start time approx. 11:00)
101 W. Prospect Ave.
Mt. Prospect, IL 60056
Phone: 847-577-9656
http://games-plus.com/

The rules for the players are as follows:
1. You must select 2 book stock mechs from any TRO up to and including 3085. Record Sheet products are also okay. It must have a legitimate record sheet. Experimental units are not allowed from those products either. With all of the TROs, you can ask if one of those will work and I will approve it or say nay. Please post here or PM if you would like to ask about a unit.
2. No artillery of any kind is allowed.
3. Any type of C3 is only shared between your two mechs. Just the same, Narc or any other group benefit weapon only helps your 2 unit team.
4. You get 6000 BV2 to pick your units. This includes their piloting and gunnery and other modifiers to BV such as C3.

The standard Chicago rules apply.

I and my fellow agents have some nice painted mechs up for grabs for the for the person who kills the mech. One per player to make sure everyone gets something.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask.

It is 2 mechs, for 6K BV2. They have to be book stock within the restrictions mentioned. I recommend bring multiple pairs in case of issue or for respawns.

I have not played since the 1980's, but getting tired of spending way too much on 40k. That and I'm not very good at 40k :o

Does it have to be mecha? The reason I ask is that someone one time used hover tanks.
So super heavy mecha?
Tanks?
Battle armor?
Halos?
Wing in ground effects Also?
LAMS?

No artillery? No T-Aug? It's like you don't even want me to play in this game!  ;D

I've got my forces lined up - see you all there!

I have 1 pair worked out, but I'm waiting on tomorrow's recognition guide before I decide on the other.  There may be something in there that's legal for this game and I've been trying to use new variants where reasonable.
To the utmost!

If Wolf Reaper allows RecGuide designs, I've got a few new things I'd like to try, but he explicitly said TROs 3085 & prior only.

Will "The Binder" be available?
Not sure if I can come (I'd like to, planning to), but also not sure of my ability to pick units anymore.

I took that to mean only tech that was Tournament Legal as of 3085. So nothing like CASE II or Reflective Armor, but Watchdog CWS is OK.

I've got two pre-3085 pairs set to go, but I also have a TR5 Wraith & an Agrotera if you'll let me run them.

I am fine Agotera. Edit: both are fine.
