Hello new and aspiring admirals, the Ottawa Armada group is hosting an online Tabletop Simulator (TTS) Armada League! This eight week Star Wars Armada League is a way of bringing together people together during the pandemic and giving both new players and veterans the chance to try out the new 1.5 edition of Armada. While the League is focused on Canadian players, those outside Canada are welcome to join as well. https://www.facebook.com/events/500634884238412. Registration closes on January 22 so sign up soon if you'd like to participate.
Participants will play eight games over eight weeks - at the end of which the top 4 players will face off in a cut to a "top table" round robin. The League portion will run from 26 January 2021 to 09 March 2021 and the top table round robin will run from March 20-21 2021. There will be an optional prize pool with prizes TBC. Participants are requested to contribute $10 to the pool, however, no one will be turned away for lack of funds. To register, please send an email to Montana.firstname.lastname@example.org and (if you would like to be eligible for prizes), send a $10 E-transfer to the same email. Final prizes are still to be confirmed until registration is complete, but the top two will have their name engraved on an Armada trophy and we're looking at sending custom-made ship trays to the top player(s).
Players will be randomly matched throughout the League and it will be up to them to select a date and time during each week with their opponent. Games will be played on Tabletop Simulator (TTS), however, if both players prefer Vassal they are welcome to use that platform instead. TTS is on sale on Steam for 50% off until 05 January 2021. https://store.steampowered.com/.../Tabletop_Simulator/ Lists will be 400pt tournament standard and we will be using the recently released Armada 1.5 rules. Players will be allowed to change up their lists weekly though those in the final round robin will need to select one list for the entire tournament.
