Welcome to another Datacard Showdown update! As of this post, all groups should have received an in-game message from me explaining their eligibility. If you did NOT receive one and feel your group should have received one, let me know.It may have gone to a different member of your group if you have multiple factions so keep that in mind as well.
A few changes since the first post have been made as well to make things easier on those involved, and to make it more fun. There will now be 6 winners instead of 4. Each datacard can be chosen TWICE overall instead of once. 1st and 2nd place will get to pick again from what is left after 6th place chooses its datacard. The events themselves will also be spread out more so I expect it to take the entire week instead of just the weekend, but you won't need to be active the entire time. Each phase will be broken into a tournament bracket randomly generated for fairness. We will determine best times between each group and move it along as quickly as possible.
Teaming up will likely not be possible. Even so, we will watch for shady behavior. Your group should act in its own interest and for its own datacards or they may be disqualified.
Space Combat Phase:
The 4 champions from each team will be split into different types of ships to form a small fleet. Two fleets will engage with the winner moving on in the tournament bracket. Expect Corvettes, gunships, bombers, and fighters.
Ground Combat Phase:
The 4 champions will be given squads that specialize in different things. Expect melee, sniping, and everything in-between. Tournament style as well. 2 teams face off.
Expect anything from R&D skills to Perception to Combat to Space Combat to Infantry Command... expect anything and nothing! You'll need to be creative and quick-witted. There is no other way to prep for this one.
The top 6 teams will battle it out here. Ground, Space, and Room combat are involved.
UT-60D U-wing Support Craft - Permanent Datacard
Goji-DF Turtle Tanker - Permanent Datacard
MC-30b Corvette - Permanent Datacard
Kandosii-type Dreadnaught - Permanent Datacard (stats and art pending)
Winners will be the teams with the most overall points. The prize pool will be selected from in descending order for their faction. 6 winners overall. Each DC can be chosen twice total. Draft order is - 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 1st, 2nd.
Every team member who competes, even if their team does not win, will get to choose a Physical DC of one of the new ships, making a full squadron (12 slots).
edit: some of the DMs didn't go through. I'm working on it now. Will edit again when they're all fully sent.
Edit: All sent!
