Henchman rights

Question

 Hello to everyone.

Dunno if similar question is for this section.

Our local hechman declare next tourney as using GG2018.

But some changes are ridiculous. Players get Tournament Points (TP) as always (3 for win, 1 for draw, 0 for lose) but then player can get up to 3 TP for painting (pretty subjective factor) and then after all 3 rounds each player rate each other opponent on scale 1 to 5. And after all player with lowest summary number get -2 TP, with highest number get +2 TP. So winning all 3 rounds you can easy lose to player who won single match ( 9-2 TP and 3+3+2 TP)

Question is so: henchman can do anything he want or he must have some constraints? Next time nonsmoking player can get - 5 TP, for example.

Not necessarily a henchman but anyone organising an event can set the rules as they please. You can voice your displeasure by not attending their events or try to sway them so they do it differently the next time.

Just remember to express yourself carefully to them. Speaking from experience I can tell you that when you spend several hours of your free time and usually end up losing money on arranging a nice event any negative comments will hurt. Saying "I didn't care for this abd would prefer this" is one thing, calling their decisions ridiculous is a good way of making them potentially never arrange anything again.

You hold in your hands a guide to the world of Malifaux 2nd Edition (M2E) Tournament scene. This document defines the Gaining Grounds Tournament format, which is the official M2E Tournament format. While individual Tournament Organizers may wish to run other unique formats, this document contains the official system used by Wyrd Miniatures.

Your question has nothing to do with Henchman work.

Tournament organizer chooses the rules he want to people play. If u don't like rules he offers make your own tournament. Usually if ends up with if organized offers something that people don't like, people play without him and organize another tournament and abandon one they don't like.

Points for painting and sportsmanship used to be the norm when I was playing gw games a few years back btw.

Back then paining and army composition would be added to each individual match so someone powergaming an unpainted army would need to win with the equivalent of 10-0 to have a shot at winning the whole thing. It is usually possible to getthe highest paintih point without being a master painter just having properly painted models that are based. Have you recieved a guide on how painting is judged?

Unless you need to do some crazy stuff to score those points, it's likely that anyone that would be allowed to even play under the GG2108 rules is picking up 3TP. The players that aren't getting those 3TP wouldn't have been at the tournament it was being run strictly by GG2018. This seems like a nice middle compromise on having a painting requirement.

I'm not sure what the voting thing is meant to accomplish but the person running it is probably trying to accomplish something with it.

Our local hench does something in a similar theme, just a different method.  1st, 2nd, 3rd just gets you the fancy certificate.  After that, everyone flips from the same deck to determine what order you get a crack at the prizes in, with "favorite opponent" (as determined by vote), "fully painted" (run fully painted all day as defined by TO), and 1st place getting :+flipon the flip.  If you manage to win multiple catagories, multiple :+flip for you.

Ludvig's got it right though, likely your Henchman came from a GW background, and he's bringing some of that scoring with him.  That's his right.
