First, some general
common sense stuff.........
1. Have fun! This is the most important
rule. If you aren't having fun then why bother.
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 email Kilroy 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 such.
Second, who may play
who and how to report a battle.......
1. Obviously, only games against other club members
will count towards the club rankings.
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 (BAR 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 BAR. If you do
not, then please email
Kilroy and ask for one. Please include all necessary information
to the best of your ability when posting your result. An added feature
of the BAR 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
Third, tournaments and
special competitions, hence forth referred to as club events......
1. Only club members are allowed to enter club
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
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 BAR) 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
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.
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.
Fifth, regarding membership
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
Awol Members and MIA!
The new ruling on this is after a three month period a member does not post a game to the BAR - 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 BAR) - (RL Issues that are totally out of your control - these will have
to be approved by me and you will be given leeway in that regard).
The consequences of being ejected from the club are this: your name (nickname) will be stricken from the BAR 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 supercedes 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 basis.
As many of you know (at least in CMBO) Flak Trucks are not allowed in the Records page - they are faulty and have a bug that
does not allow them to be killed by AP Rounds - therefore:
Flak trucks are not allowed to be purchased for all Band of Brothers battles.
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
