Rosters and Skills

• The 24 NAF approved races will be permitted to enter the €uropen Online 17. Simyin will not be eligible

inducements: Tier 3 teams may buy 0-2 Star Players but must have at least 11 regular players before doing so. Goblins may buy 0-3 bribes and Halflings may buy 0-1 master chef.

o Please note that most likely you will have more skills to chose than you are allowed to (dummy skills).
This means you have to either use a skill which the player already has, or use the following skills which you must opt not to use:

- If player already has a skill which he has access to: Chose that skill => skinks dodge, dwarf blockers block, ...
- Normal skill only access players: Kick off Return or Pass Block => e.g. zombies, skaven linos, orc linos
- Agility skill only access players: Sprint or Leap => e.g. elf linos
- Strength skill only access players: (only if no normal or ag players are available) Juggernaught (you are not allowed to use it) => e.g Ogres

While this is not 100% idiot prove, we'll try to check all the teams as good as possible before the start, but it's also each players responsibility to check the opponents team before starting the game.
Intentionally abusing this rule and using dummy skills in gameplay will result in forfait for the opposing player.

o A single player cannot be given more than one additional skill throughout the tournament

o Star Players may not be given additional skills

o All Skills are available from game 1

o “Double Skill” means a skill from a category if the player would have rolled a double

o Instead of double skills normal skills can be given

o The €uropen Online is a ‘resurrection’ tournament. This means that your players will not gain spps, and that teams will ‘reset’ following each match. Injuries and deaths do not carry to the next game, new players cannot be purchased and raised Zombies and Rotters are not added to the roster

Tournament Format

o Euopen Online is a team tournament. A team aka Squad consists of 3 coaches each coaching a team of different race.

o Coaches will enter the €uropen Online with the intention of playing in one of three timezones (European, American, Oceanic). This should ensure coaches can schedule games at mutually convenient times. Squads do not have to play in the same time zone.

o You do not have to live in one of these timezones to participate in it! Select the timezone that suits you best

o Applicants will be split into ~ 30 team Swiss groups according to timezone
