    For some reason I love the nuts and bolts real life stuff! I find it very interesting.

    Couple of questions/points on the Hobby Track. I do understand it is secondary in importance to most players as part of the tournament scene, but it would be great to have TOs take it a bit more seriously. As of now, I have 6 scores entered in it, 2 are wrong and the TOs were contacted to amend them with no change to this date (one was contacted this week so I will give him some time 😉 ) and a third one seems wrong but might be due to the way the score is calculated.

    To be more specific, if you look at my score, my team and I came first for the Hobby Track at the Basement Open and we show in 3rd place instead, our overall score before one team was disqualified, not our painting score which was first.

    Following that, all the players at the Hooded Goblin GT#2 get 90.02 points and came in… first place! This one is the tournament I contacted the TO this week.

    Last one which might be due to the way things are calculated is the score for Adepticon. 5th place Jim Vesal score more points than 2nd, 3rd and 4th place with a 5th place and nearly as much as first place. Is that due to the fact he made the finals, got more rounds which resulted in more points? If it is the case, I feel it is not in the spirit of the Hobby Track which should not reward the best general over the best painted armies.

    So out of my 6 scores, 2 are wrong and a third one is in a grey area, it is 50% of my score that seem to have issues. Not a great result!

    Finally, I hope this those not come up as a rant but a way to improve the Hobby Track. I do appreciate the effort FLG and all the TOs put into the ITC and promoting the hobby in general.

    P.S. It would be great to include tournament like Adepticon Team Tournament and Long War Double in the Hobby Track. Each year, those events bring the best hobbyists from all around to show off the most amazing armies!

      Hey Dom, yeah, reach out to the TOs about incorrect scores and if you see things that look off like that, let us know as we can’t see everything. Email the BCP guys about the Hooded Goblin event as that is clearly incorrect.

      Hobby Track points don’t have anything to do with rounds played. Again, ping the BCP guys about the Adepticon score and they can help you out. It’s possible Adepticon scored their hobby points differently than normal.

      The ITC is a collaborative effort, we don’t have the manpower to scrutinize every result of every event, so we need to all work together to spot any outliers.

    Was enjoying this, but it seems to have cut out mid sentence for me… Is there more?
