      Mesa AZ, I put the link up on in the post for the location and hotel and such. Dumb of me to forget to include it the first time!

    Team tourney shares a force org? I seriously disagree with that decision. People are still getting use to 6th, I’d let them each have a FOC. Less stress and confusion if it’s just 2 people with 1K lists than 2 people with a single 2K list. I also disagree with following the alliance chart for who you can team with. My best friend plays eldar and I play necrons, so we’re being excluded from the tourney because we both only play one army. I understand the interest of fluff but that seems very short-sighted.

      I understand what you’re saying, but the single FOC is a format we have used in the past and it works well. We actually took it largely from Adepticon’s Team Tournament format which is definitely tried and true.

      As for following the allies matrix? I thought about that one for a long time. I think it is just easier for people to work with an established allies matrix as this allows people to use rules they are used to. It means we have to change the book as little as possible. It works as closely as possible to the way the book presents allies.

      It is a bummer that some combos will be invalidated, but no matter what we do, someone will not like it. Had we created our own rules for allies, I assure you we’d have another group of people mad at us for not just sticking with the allies rules in the book.

        That’s fair. It’s a different meta out there on the west coast, just never seen something like that over here. I understand what you’re saying about the allies chart, too. The unfortunate burden of a TO is that someone’s always going to be unhappy with how you decide to run things.
