Yeah, we know… we said it before, citing concerns with rules and detachments and timing. Well, we are finally saying it: We’ve set a date to start it!
Our 40K Escalation League will begin on Saturday, June 30th, 2018 and run for 6 weeks, ending with a tournament and awards ceremony/pizza party the following Saturday (August 11, 2018).
So what should you expect from this Escalation League? Here’s the points breakdowns by weeks:
Weeks 1 & 2: 500
Weeks 3 & 4: 750
Weeks 5 & 6: 1000
For each points iteration, you can play up to 2 games. That means that you have 2 weeks to complete 2 games. If you want to play 1 game each week, cool. If you wanna do both during the first or second week of an iteration, that’s cool too. Don’t wanna play any games during an iteration? I guess that’s fine (why’d you join the league, though?)
The league will have a $10 entry fee to add to the prize pool. This fee is waived if you purchase (or have purchased recently) a Start Collecting box from us.
In addition, for league players, we will extend our 15% discount on Games Workshop products (which ends on June 30th otherwise) through the duration of our league so you can continue to bolster your Army.
Stay tuned through the weekend for more specifics on the Week 1 & 2 scenarios and Army restrictions.
Edit: 7/1/2018 — Corrected points values for each iteration; Bi-weekly increase was intended to be 250 — not 500 — point increments.
