BWX Fest ’21

Welcome to the inaugural Breath Weapon X Fest!

As you probably know, Alex and Rob record themselves playing games based around a build challenge each week. Early on they joked together about ‘when we do Breath Weapon X Fest this… and when we do Breath Weapon X Fest that….’

Then the pandemic hit and everything face to face stopped. Everything face to face, that was! During the year there has been an unprecedented number of online tournaments, taking up the slack and filling the void where the f2f tournaments would have been.

This renewed our interest in BWX as the original concept and also made the original idea for BWX Fest much more viable as an online tournament.

Time and Place

Date: 16th January 2021

Where: Online through Discord (#bwx-fest)

Start Time: check in at 17:30 GMT, first round starts at 18:00 GMT

The event will be swiss rounds only. The number of participants will determine the number of rounds

Number of PlayersNumber of Rounds
4-83
9-164
17-325

Rounds are “best of One” and to be played over 45 minutes.

There will be NO TURNS AT TIME.

In the event of an incomplete game in the round the win will be awarded to the player with the highest life total at the end of the turn in which the timer ends. In the event of a tie the winner will be the player who LOST the roll off at the start. For this reason a roll off of sidekicks/wilds must be done at the start of each round to determine who gets to choose who goes first. If the winner of the roll off chooses to go second the other player is still deemed to have lost the roll off.

We will not be running any cuts – the leader-board will be based on Swiss Round performance. Matching performance will be decided by “Strength of Schedule” as determined by the exciting algorithmic machinations of Challonge.

We are asking participants to “check in” on Challonge and hang out on the Discord channel 30 minutes before start time, to ensure a prompt kick off at 6pm GMT.

Please submit team lists by 13:00 GMT on 16th January. Team lists can be submitted by e-mail to breathweaponx@gmail.com as a Dice Coalition Team Builder link or through the submission process on Discord with a Team Builder link. You can find the Team Builder here:

Team Building Format

This team build for this event will be a modified version of our signature SAWLTEAC (Single Affiliation With Less Than Eight Available Characters) as we will also be including affiliations with EXACTLY eight characters. As such the format will be SAWNMTEAC (Single Affiliation With No More Than Eight Available Characters)

What this means is that if a particular Affiliation has less than 9 available differently named characters you can use it. The different number of cards an affiliation has is not important, just the different amount of available characters.

Here is a comprehensive list of available AFFILIATIONS

For this event we are not restricting Basic Action Cards, anything is fair game. Also there are no bans for this event, we think the format is restrictive enough as it is. That being said, if you manage to find anything particularly nasty (I can think of 1 such card at the moment) do remember that this event is aimed towards all participants having a good time and not being beaten down for 20-30 minutes at a time, so bear that in mind! above all, have fun with the build, you should all be able to find an affiliation that fits with a theme that you enjoy and can have fun with, even if that particular affiliation only has 1, 2 or 3 cards!

Entry Requirements

This is a Ticketed event. Entry is $7 (approx £5) this is mainly to cover P&P for prizing. Any leftover funds will be donated to a charity. We are asking you in the signup page for the Challonge event to nominate a charity that you would like the spare money to go to. There will be a draw on the day to determine which charity is chosen. A Challonge account is required to enter the tournament.

Prizing

There will be a number of prizes awarded. This might be slightly different to how prizing is usually awarded! Because we want it to be more about the time spent with others and not necessarily about winning we will be awarding the grand prize to the player that finishes last! On the flip side, we don’t want the gameplay to be so poor that people are vying to purposefully lose games, so there will also be a separate prize for the player who finishes first.

We will also be doing a raffle draw with not one, but two twists!

Firstly, 1 ticket will be awarded for winning a game and 2 tickets will be awarded for losing a game

Secondly, they won’t actually be tickets. Instead we will be assigning each player a character from the Batman set and the corresponding dice will act as the raffle tickets and be drawn out of a bag at the end of the tournament!
