You are aware that the Godemperor of this tourney is wearing justified the Grand Nagus batch :) ?? Joking aside. I am in favour of naming an affiliation you do not want. Updated suggestions will follow today.

Update:

- OTF

- 25th of April, weekly rounds, random affiliation assigned by me and a neutral force for control

- rated will depend on the poll after February, current standing: rated

- I will not participate and assign a second TD who of course can participate

- every player could name ONE affiliation he does not want to play

- all non.Alpha Qudrant missions are banned

- affiliations include: Klg, Fed, Non-A, Borg, Rom, Starfleet, Vulcan, Bajoran, Cardassian, Ferengi

- affiliation matters, if you chose a faction given by regulations, you are fine

- you are limited to FOUR cards not matching your affiliation only

- anyone bold enough to name dominion alpha VOLUNTARILY according to this restrictions will receive a dual-card from TMP from my stack

Open for suggestions.

And I'll take 3rd position on that. I don't even care about the card. :P

Depends on how many TMP DAs Seppel has available to give away! :wink:

Do not push your luck, my stack is limited :) . Kev is noted for AQ Dom if he participates, if not, it is Brian. You have to deal with the lottery. But you are allowed to pick one affiliation you do not want.

Planting Flag Now:

Choice 1: Alpha Dominion (contingent on Kev not participating and/or Seppel putting up 2 TMP DAs)

Choice 2: NOT [1E-Fer]


[1E-Fer] ! I'm not above a bribe. :P [Rule] [Rule] [Rule]

Clarifying question:

Do DAs count against your 4 card off color limit if one of the colors matches the chosen affiliation?

For example, if I'm given [Kli] , can I use Phlox plus 4 more non- [Kli] cards or does Phlox count as off color because he also has a [SF] icon?

Good question. My idea: Dual-cards do not count to the limit, if you are using them in the appropriate mode. When you change their affiliation they will count to the limit. 4 cards only not matching your affiliation.
Alternative: Banning dual-aff entirely.
As usual: What would you prefer?

Ok well that's a different rule. It's one thing to say you can only have 4 off color cards in your deck, it's another to say you can only have 4 in play.

My opinion: don't overcomplicate it. Have DAs that match the chosen affiliation not count against the 4 off color deck building limit.

If you're worried about shenanigans (and I'm not sure what those shenanigans would be... Diplomatic Conference, maybe?), then have a separate cap of 4 DAs that include the matching affiliation. Maybe shenanigans can still be pulled, but at that point it's just fun!

Brian made some very good points in our chat after the game.

Update:

- Dual-personnel may only be used in the mode of your assigned affiliation

- Alliance with the Sona: I overlooked that one. The 4 card limit will be extended to PRINTED affiliation only. But the reward will be high: You will get a TMP Dual for sure. And there are plenty of ways besides the Sona to make Alpha-Dominion running.
