Opinion on escalation Campaign

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone

A friend and I want to do a Planetfall Escalation Campaign to get some more People into the game and give the Rest of us a reason to play more games.

Since we haven’t done such a campaign for any System we play, we would be happy to hear you opinions on our plans.

First there aren’t a lot of players in the area so finding different people for a game is a bit hard. So the campaign would be open for everyone. 

This is our first Draft at the moment:

Pointlimit: 4’000 - 5’000 Points, the “Pricetag” for new players should be  around 200£ which gives you 4-5 Boxes.

Painting: Models can be played unpainted but must be assembled. Players who have 50% of their MFV painted get 50 Points for Log points only. People who have 100% painted receive 100 Points for Log Points. (Those points can be combined with points from the MFV, So a Directorate player who has painted 50% could spend 10 Points from his MFV and end with 3 Log Points).

Proxys: Proxys will only be allowed for Infantry Upgrades, because we don’t want to force people to buy the Upgrade box. However the Infantry Bases need a marking to show which one isn’t just a regular Base.

Escalation Games at 5’000 Points:

 

1st Game: 1350 Points Limited to 1 Core Helix Box and no Tac Cards. (Yes some races have to cut, Directorate has to take Upgrades on their Infantery).

2nd Game: 2’000 Points no Limits, with Tac Cards

3rd Game: 3’000 Points: No Limit

4th Game: 4’000 Points: No Limit

5th Game: 5’000 Points: No Limit

The Games will take place every 6 Weeks with the Dates known at the Start of the Campaign.

About a Month before the campaign starts we want to do a Demonstration day.

We haven’t contacted the LGS yet because we wanted to hear some input first so we don’t have to change our plans every other day.

We would be happy to hear your thoughts especialy on the points limit.

I've never done an escalation campaign before. Is it an online thing?

There is a fairly large jump in the length of a game for beginners from 1350 - 5000 points, as this opens the game up to lots of helices. Id suggest you do smaller increments: 1350, 2000, 2750, 3500, 4000.

No we are holding the campaign hopefully at our Local Game Store or at our Gaming Club. It's not planned to hold the campaign online.

Thank you for your opinion on the points increments we take that into our consideration.
