The 2021 Online Limited Series begins January 5, 2021 with a First Edition event, Second Anthology Sealed.

This will be an online event in which registered players will receive a cardpool containing the contents of a Second Anthology box set: two Starter Deck IIs, two packs each of First Contact, Deep Space Nine, and The Dominion, and six fixed personnel cards.

This event will follow Open OTF format rules, with the following changes:

* "Universal Treaty" in effect: each player's non- [Bor] personnel, ships, and facilities may mix regardless of affiliation (though a matching personnel is still required to staff a ship or attempt a mission).

* Ignore quadrant icons on missions, facilities, ships, and personnel.

* Ignore [Holo] icons on personnel.

* Memory Wipe is banned (as is anything else banned in OTF).

As this is an online event, Lackey is required to play, as is Skype (or other mutually-agreed upon voice chat program). First round pairings will be announced on January 5th, with a deadline of one week for each round. Cardpools will be send to all registered players within a few days of the start of the event.

That's it for now. Happy gaming!

Just a bump to remind players this is coming up, with a couple weeks left to sign up. Three registered so far, can we get a few more? Start your 2021 off with some sealed play!

It would seem, at least by the consensus of those that have posted so far, that OTF would be preferred. I am also a vote for OTF.

To me, going OTF in sealed basically means we are using the ban list and not having to account for potential mission theft. I am good with using it for both of those reasons. :twocents:

I like missions not being stolen. (The opportunity may be there anyway with all the universal missions in the SDII's.)

I'll make the change tonight, as that appears to be the consensus.

OK. OTF Rules are officially in effect for this event.

As this means the ban list is in effect, the rule about Memory Wipe being banned is now redundant, but I'll leave it there as it's very important. (Especially since every player gets two copies in their cardpool.)

Well I just finished building nine (!) cardpools in Lackey, so we are on track, with just under two weeks left before the event begins.

Found this topic only today (but naturally I blame me, squarely).

I'm a total newbee in OP land, having played only 3 side events during Worlds. But with what I saw there, and how much fun it could be, this -- and the OTSD event starting the same day -- seemed great for me. Of the two, eventually I chose this one because we did OTSD in Vienna.

Just for the record: I, for (only) one, lament the change from Open to OTF. If only, because I have no practical experience with OTF.
OTOH, I do hate the complexity of mission stealing; and Fair Play may be my most-used card after Red Alert or Toff. So, if that's the price...

And it'll be good to finally get some of that experience, I guess. It's just... I'm afraid I'll make habitual mistakes during deck building and/or the games. Please point that out, then.
And, hopefully, y'all turn out to be as patient, elegant, and helpful as "the Vienna lot"...? :wink: :P

Seriously, I'm looking forward to this and hope I'll not be a bother.

:cheersL:
