First, some general common sense
1. Have fun! This is the
most important rule. If you aren't having fun then why bother.
Second, who may play who and how
to report a battle.......
2. Be courteous to your opponents!
If you will not be able to return that PBEM file for a few days let your
opponent know about it. If you join a tournament then do your utmost to
see it through and finish all battles on time.
3. DO NOT USE THE CLUB MESSAGE BOARD TO
PERSONALLY ATTACK A FELLOW MEMBER!!! If you have a gripe
with another member of the club then email him and let him know about it.
If its something I need to know about then e-mail GreyWolfBoB
and let me know about it. Personal attacks on the club board will not be
tolerated. The message board is intended as a medium for getting club information
out to the members and for friendly discussion of club and/or Combat Mission
topics. Now, I like a good natured ribbing or taunt as well as the next
guy and this is allowed. Just be sure it is clear that it is intended as
1. Obviously, only games against other
club members will count towards the club rankings.
Third, tournaments and special competitions,
hence forth referred to as club events......
2. There are no restrictions on who may play who
as long as I don't see you playing the same opponent all the time. The
idea is to play many different opponents and expand your Combat Mission
experience. Now if you have a favorite opponent and want to keep a running
game going with them at all times.....fine. Just include some other games
against other members as well.
3. Upon completion of a battle it is the winning
player's responsibility to report the results using the Band of Brothers
After Action Report Registration Tool (BoBster for short). Once you become
a member you should receive an email with all the information you need
to post a battle result on the BoBster. If you do not, then please e-mail
and ask for one. Please include all necessary information to the best of
your ability when posting your result. An added feature of the BoBster
is that whenever a battle is reported as finished an automatic post is
made to the "After Action Report" forum of the message board containing
all the pertinent battle information. This makes it easy for members to
keep up to date on the battle reports. It is the losing player's responsibility
to verify the report made by the winning player is accurate. If a game
report is contested and neither player has proof of the correct result,
then the entire game will be voided.
1. Only club members are allowed to enter
Fourth, the campaigns........
2. All club events will be open to all club members.
However, limits as to the number of participants that will be allowed may
be set by the member hosting the tournament.
3. All club events will be announced on the website
and the host of the event will start a thread in the tournament forum of
the message board where members should reply to enter. If there is a limit
on the number of participants then it will be first come first served.
Example: If I limit a club event to 16
participants, then the first 16 members to sign up on the message board
will be allowed into the event.
4. Every member who enters a club event is expected
to do their utmost to complete all event battles on time. To not do so
shows a lack of respect for your fellow members. If its determined that
a member has a history of not finishing event games then they will be suspended
from club events indefinitely.
5. All club event battles will be included in
the calculation of club rankings (reported on BoBster) unless specifically
stated by the member hosting the event that they should not be reported.
The member hosting the event will indicate if the battles should be counted
as it depends on the nature of the battles in the event.
6. The only true draw in a club event battle will
be when each player's final score as calculated by the Combat Mission engine
are equal. Barring that, the player with the higher point total is considered
to be the winner.
1. The campaigns will be open to all
club members the same as club events.
Fifth, regarding membership
2. Once a campaign is ready the campaign host
will start a thread on the message board asking for members to sign up.
3. All members who sign up for a campaign are
expected to do their best to keep up and get their orders and battles done
on schedule. A members history in club event participation will also
be a factor. Repeated failures may cause them to be dropped from a campaign
or not allowed in.
I don't want to sound like a hard
ass or a tyrant. I'll do my best to take this club in the direction that
the majority of members seem to want to go. I'll often ask for member input
into various happenings in the club and I'll be receptive to ideas and
criticisms by members regarding the club. However, if I find that a member
is acting in such a way as to disrupt club activities or ruin other member's
enjoyment of the club, that member will be dropped and dropped fast.
The new ruling on this is
after a three month period a member does not post a game to the BoBster
- he is ejected from the club. There will be exceptions
made - (example - being in a tourney that produces games that cannot be
entered in the BoBster) - (RL issues that are totally out of your control
- these will have to be approved by me and you will be given leeway in
The consequences of being ejected from the club are
this: your name (nickname) will be stricken from the BoBster and will no
longer appear in the rankings. All medals and ribbons that were given for
various tourneys or anything else will be erased.
If any member reapplies for membership they will
have to start fresh, just like a new member. If a member was ejected for
not finishing games, ignoring multiple requests for game files - they will
not be allowed back into the club.
This supersedes any other rulings on this subject
- posting does not count as being active in the club, playing
games does. This is not a chat room or social club - it is a gaming
I realize that RL issues are sometimes beyond
our control, remember all these will be considered - on a case by case
However, all types of excemptions won't last
longer than 2 years. After that time, the member will be dropped from the
Retirement from club membership
Veteran club members will
have the option to declare their retirement from club membership.
To be qualified as a veteran, a club member must
have been in the club for more than 2 years
and played more than 30 games.
Upon his declaration of retirement he will be
put on the AWOL list but with a *retired* remark added.
The benefits of the retirement is a possible
full membership restoration which includes all battle stats,
rankings, medals & ribbons. This reactivation
may be declared at any point the member likes to come
(This rule is valid only for
Flak trucks are not allowed to be purchased for all
Band of Brothers CMBO battles.
As many of you know, Flak Trucks are faulty and
have a bug that does not allow them to be killed by AP Rounds - therefore:
Exceptions as follows:
- computer pick
- tournaments/ campaigns when explicitly allowed
by Tourney/Campaign Master
- test games
These include the SdKfz 7/1 and SdKfz 7/2 vehicles
(This rule is valid only for
CMBB & CMAK battles)
The "Variable Game Ending"
setting is mandatory for all BoB tournament games (CMBB & CMAK).
Same is true for campaign games, as long as it
fits into their battle creation system (as per campaign director's decision).
For stardard games (e.g. non-tourney/campaign)
players are encouraged to use this setting for their games in order to
avoid last turn flag rushes.
