BrisVegas Open Pack
The BrisVegas Open was fought over five rounds using realm artefacts but not full realm rules. The organisers also used a unique approach to scoring. Check out the full pack here.
Bris Vegas Open will be trying a new way of scoring Major and minor victories, this will be based on the difference between the score at the end of the game.
The exact differences will be listed on the tournament scoring sheet at the be-ginning of the weekend.
As an example: Battle for the Pass, if you beat your opponent by 6VP or more you will win a major victory, if you beat your opponent by 1—5VP you will win a minor victo-ry.
The aim of this is to more accurately reflect the outcome of a game being close or a crushing defeat.
