The Warhammer 40k Escalation League will take place over 12 weeks, running from Sunday, June 12th, 2022 and ending on September 4th, 2022. Players will be paired in one round a week each week on Sundays. They will then have the entire week to contact their opponents and play their game within the store sometime during operating hours. Event pairings will be posted and coordinated through the store’s Discord server (a link of which will be provided later in this document).
The “escalation” aspect of the event refers to the fact that the league will play three games at each level of competitive play. The first three weeks will be played at Combat Patrol level, with armies being no larger than 500 points each. Starting with week Four, army sizes will increase to 1000 points in size; then 1500 points at week Seven, with the last three weeks being at a full army size of 2000 points.There will be prizes for the best overall league records, as well as several minor Best in Faction awards. Finally, there will be prizes for Sportsmanship and Painting!
While players in the event can indeed play on any day of the week during store hours, the TO for the event will be at Crazy Squirrel in person on the currently scheduled times for open play minis (Thursdays 6-9 pm and Sundays Noon to 5 pm) during the duration of the event.
