**** A Statement on Lists and List Pre-Submission ****

**** A Statement on Lists and list Pre-Submission  ****

In light of recent events (Adepticon, March Madness), there has been a greater call to review lists.  It is with that in mind that we are making a small policy change.

The new policy:
Lists are not required to be pre-submitted, but at our event we plan to validate EVERY LIST in attendance.  This will be done by the Judging panel, and will be done during the event, when the judges aren't actively involved otherwise.

We the Judges will do our best.  We will use tools to aid us such as Battlescribe, and we will consult Codexes and rule books where we think it is important, however, we are human, and capable of errors.

We will have the following consequences for lists found to be invalid.

A) If the issue is minor, such as a typo, or a misspelling, and does not affect gameplay we will issue a warning, and ask that it be notated for future opponents.

B) If the Judges have approved the list, and missed an issue that has effected gameplay, for instance an army being over points, we will require the following corrections.

  1. The player with the Illegal list will be issued a warning.
  2. The list will be corrected for future rounds by removing components (wargear, models or units).
  3. Opponents who lost to the list prior to the correction will be granted +500 bonus points.   


C) if the Judges have not yet approved the list, or find the error during the approval process:

  1. The player with the Illegal list will penalized with -1,000 points.
  2. The player with the illegal list will be disqualified from Best Overall.
  3. The list will be corrected for future rounds by removing Units until it is legal.
  4. Opponents who lost to the list prior to the correction will be granted +500 bonus points.   


In light of this policy update, if you would like to pre-submit your list for approval you may do so by sending me a Facebook message, or using the Contact Us link on the website:  http://www.flyingmonkeygt.com/p/contact-us.html

We ask for 24 hours to grant a pre-approval, so lists submitted April 15 or later will not be pre-approved.
