2014 Gen Con Clan Grand Melee
« on: 30 August 2014, 21:14:17 »
After allowing players to bring their own choice of mech resulted in 5 of the 11 players bringing a 4 gun Nova Cat F, we decided to change the format to draft-style, with a pool of 32 medium mechs and accompanying painted minis. It seemed to work better, finishing 2 hours faster than last year.

This was the grand melee to get into the Trial of Bloodright for the Sea Fox Hawker bloodname. Accordingly, there were three Inner Sphere mechs on the list. The full list:

Looks like fun.  How long did it take to resolve & how did it turn out?

It took 3.5 hours to resolve, with Steve Watts in the Stormcrow A taking the victory.
