Hey everyone.

 

I'm a new Assault Officer (#104) and need some help from you guys with some experience.

 

I'm working with my Home Game Shop (also known as A Knight's Realm <-- shameless plug) to get everyone playing more by setting up a league.  I have played and run leagues based on other game systems and I've noticed that there are always things that you do and do not want to do with a league.

 

So finally to my question... Has anyone out there run a league for CAV, and if so, are there any tips or special rules, etc. that I need to know about to make sure that everyone has fun and no one feels that the league isn't fair.  I understand that you can't please everyone, but I want to try.

 

We've got between 8 and 12 people that will play.  Although it isn't a large group, I think we can make it fun with help from you high level Officers.

 

Thanks in advance.

What I had in mind for a background would be....

 

A long standing family <insert name here> had dictatorial rule over a sector of the galaxy.  The area was rumored to be one of the wealthiest in minerals and supplies.

 

After making a wrong decision on which side to back in a recent battle, they have all been executed by the Templars.  this leaves a vacancy in the area so fast that you could hear the vaccuum calling in mercenaries as well as well known families that want access to the wealth.

 

There will be between 8 and 12 planets in the area that will be staging points for the battles that make up the league.  The final goal being taking over the moon colony that used to be the home of <insert name here>.

 

I planned on starting people out with no upgrades, being armor, pilots, different weapons than stock, etc.  This would then open up week by week based on how they do in the battles.

 

I am going to set up an experience table that will be the only way they can get upgraded pilots/weapons officers without paying double or triple the base price.  This will then include a chance to survive you equipment being destroyed in battle in an attempt to not tally piss people off when their ace pilot dies because of a lucky shot by infantry with a missle launcher.

 

Each week would be a special scenario.  These would include ambush, raid, gather the treasure, etc.  All of these would have special rules that would then also give upgrades and additional experience.

 

The league would end with a single table massive battle to see who wins control of the moon colony.

 

That's about all I have for now...

You might want to change Templars to Rach or Malvernians.  It wouldn't be good PR for the supposed  Good Guys of the universe to go around executing people!  :D

 

As for how your league works, I'd highly suggest something that can be easily scaled down as it progresses.  You'll be sure to lose a couple of those players after a week or two, just a sad fact of gaming.
