TOTM: Modern DC Draft

Hello Dice Masters!  Worlds has come to an end and while we are getting our coverage out there, I figured now would be a good time to sneak out the TOTM for September.  This month we will be trying something completely new for the TOTM, but something you should be familiar with.

For those that are unfamiliar with the TOTM, here is what you need to know:

  • You will be given specific parameters for a Team Build for the given month.
  • A “fun play night” will be set when people will be welcome to gather and play their Teams themselves for the competition.

This competition will be open worldwide, and anyone is welcome to  join.  The submission deadline for this month will be 10:00 PM Mountain Time on September 26, 2019.  Submissions should be filled out on the TOTM Team Submission Form.  This is one is a bit of a hard deadline as we are planning something a little different than normal.

Here is the challenge for September 2019:

Who doesn’t like a good old Rainbow Draft?  Let me present to you…

What is this?

We are going to test the waters by using Trubie’s Draft Pack Generator for this month.  You will be joining in on a Draft night on Friday September 27 starting at 7:00 PM Mountain Time.  We will drafting from all of the Modern DC cards.  If you are unfamiliar with online Drafting, check out this video from DMArmada:

Now, Trubie has made some major improvements to the Draft Pack Generator since this video was released and it is even better.  There are “Draft Rooms” that help automate many of the things in DMArmada’s video.

Once the Draft is done, you will come back and play your Team on Saturday September 28 at 7:00 PM.  Basically it will be a two night affair, but the actual drafting should not take THAT long.  When you submit your information for this TOTM, you will be contacted with a link to the Draft Room when it becomes available.  This will be through the Dice Masters Online Discord Server, so you will need to join that.

The Rules…

The sets that we will be drafting from will be from all of the Modern DC Sets, which include the following:

  • Batman
  • Superman/Wonder Woman Starter Set
  • Harley Quinn Team Pack
  • Justice Campaign Box
  • Doom Patrol Team Pack
  • Mystics Team Pack

To maximize dice counts, this will be a Double Rainbow Draft (meaning you will be able to use two dice for anything you Draft).  However… in the interest of simplicity, you cannot have more than the Max Dice listed on your Card.  I want to avoid complications if you draft unique dice that you do not own.

Proxy dice will be allowed, but they must match the symbol and stats on the card.  If you wish to run a card that you do not have, printed proxies are fine.  You just need something obvious to let your Opponent know what you are using.  If you happen to Draft something like a White Lantern and do not own it, but want to run it on your Team you will need to contact me and we will figure something out.  Situations with other “unique” dice may be similar.  I do not want to limit things too much for people but also want to be fair.  Long story short… please contact me with any questions.

The plan is to play your Teams on Saturday, September 28, 2019, starting around 7:00 PM Mountain Time.  We will be starting things off in our very own Hangouts Room.  You can find the link here.  Ideally, it would be nice to get 3-4 Rounds of Play in… but we will see what happens.

Matches will be 30 minutes long to avoid slogs.  If the game is tied when time is called, the game will go to 5 turns with the active player being Turn Andy (or Turn Zero if you want).  The player with the most life at the end of Turns will be the winner.

Looking forward to seeing you there.  Thanks for reading and feel free to reach out to us with any questions.

Best of luck!

    Unless time travel is involved, I think something is wrong with these dates.
