Hello Dice Masters! The dog days of summer are upon us. What better way to beat the heat than to hide inside your house and play Dice Masters online! This month we will be celebrating the end of summer by making two of the biggest comic book Teams face off against each other… sort of.
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 August 23, 2019. Submissions should be filled out on the TOTM Team Submission Form. This is not a hard deadline, but the more notice I have, the better I can get things set up.
Here is the challenge for August 2019:
The eternal question: DC or Marvel?
Who would win in a battle of the Titans? The best that the House of Mouse has to offer versus the Distinguished Competition. Time to put this to rest with this month’s TOTM…
What is this?
This one is pretty straight forward. Your Team will be made up of Justice League and Avengers characters. So, it is not REALLY JL Avengers… it is YOUR JL/Avengers against your Opponent’s.
Half of the Team will be from the Justice League, and the other half will be from The Avengers. These characters must have the appropriate Affiliation Symbol on them. You cannot use characters who happen to be on these Teams but are not Affiliated.
Your BAC’s must be split between the two universes. One from the Marvel Sets, and one from the DC Sets. You will be allowed ONE non-BAC from each universe on your Team. The only caveat is that the non-basic action die should have a connection to the Team it is on. Try not to go too comic book nerd here.
Flip cards that have one of these Affiliations are allowed, but must start the game on the Affiliated side.
Everything is fair game in this one. You will be able to build from the full selection of Golden Cards. The only bans that are in place will be:
- Relentless – BAC
- Black Widow – Tsarina
- Hulk – Green Goliath & Jade Giant
- Lantern Ring – Limited Only By Imagination
- Cosmic Cube – Energy of the Beyonders
The following combination of cards will be banned. You may have one of these on your Team, but not both:
- Luke Cage – ALL VERSIONS FROM CIVIL WAR
- Vicious Struggle – BAC
As for proxies… I am fine with them. You may proxy cards freely if you do not have them. Just make sure it is clear to your Opponent what you have on your Team. However, dice must match the correct symbols/stats/energy exactly if you are planning on proxying them.
The plan is to play your Teams on Saturday, August 24, 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!
