You will declare your Keyword at registration.
You will build an initial 500-point force using that Keyword. This force will act as the foundation for subsequent Escalation Periods in the League.
For each Escalation Period after the first, you will increase your force to match the Points value for the current Escalation Period while retaining the units selected in the 500 point escalation Period, all other units may be changed from battle to battle.
League Scoring Sheets will be available at the Jupiter Games front counter. You will use this to record the Victory Points achieved by both players in each League game.
Report your Victory Points by turning in your League Scoring Sheet at the Jupiter Games front counter after each League game.
You will receive full Victory Points (as scored) for the first League game played in each Escalation Period. Subsequent League games reported in that Period will receive one bonus Victory Point, for a maximum of three bonus Victory Points per Period. You may play more than four League games in an Escalation Period, but only the first four games will grant you Victory Points.
League Games may not be played against players who are not
participants in the current Escalation League.
You will suffer no penalty if you are unable to play any League games during an Escalation Period, however, you will not receive any Victory Points for that Period
