How does Scoring in this narrative event work?
Players will score points individually and as a 4 man team in Missions similar to the ITS. To clarify, all games will be one on one. Exact missions will not be known ahead of time, instead they will be released as the story unfolds. Hints on Missions, Classified objectives and Specialists will be released prior to the event and army list deadline.
How do Teams work?
Players may form their own Teams ahead of time or they may be placed on a Team by Rodge if they have no preference. Each Team will have its own thematic background, similar to last year's event.
The players may create this background for themselves or Rodge will provide it if they have no preference. Unlike last year, there are no restrictions on factions, units or Classifieds.
We encourage players to think outside of the typical factional divisions (All Pano, YJ, Nomads, etc.) To see examples of Teams that are not just aligned by faction, check out last year's teams.
Any and all of last year's teams are welcome to return this year – each would have their own reasons for returning.
RegistrationRegistration opens January 1st, 2020 and closes March 31st, 2020.
To register, Paypal $65 to RodgeRules@gmail.com address. (Note: this is a different Paypal address than last year. Also, please use the Friends and Family option – we're all one big Infinity family, aren't we?)
Full refunds are available until March 31st. After that, a refund would be conditional on your spot being filled by another player.
Please include in the Paypal note:
- Your Name
