Howdy everyone, its OldHat from Dust-War.com here again. Let’s talk about DUST Warfare and tourneys.
While it hasn’t been long on the scene, Dust Warfare has drawn some serious interest from the gaming community. Locally, it is spreading like a wildfire as players seeking a cheaper game with as much depth as their other staples. For many of us coming to Dust from other games, such as Warhammer 40,000 or Warmachine, a lot of the community finds a need for a competitive outlet to test their mettle – be it from locals at a gaming store or against people from all over at a convention. So being the new kid on the block, what will Dust offer in the way of tournaments for us old salts?
That being said, there are some unique elements to the Dust Warfare rulebook that will need specific addressing. Terrain and the Battle Builder set-up seem to present a TO with some options, depending on the desired complexity of the event.
Within Dust Warfare, there exists a simple system that allows players to spend points to determine just what sort of game they are playing. So, when organizing an event, is it most prudent to outline the missions for the players or let them enjoy the cunning and craftiness of the Battle Builder? For me, I feel the latter really encourages strategy more and can be easily accounted for during a tournament.
