Code of Conduct:
At Warhammer World, we place great emphasis on playing excellent games of Middle-earth™ Strategy Battle Game with like-minded people at the home of Games Workshop.
Therefore we expect players to play each game with a certain code of conduct to support this. When you arrive at your table for a game, greet your opponent, introduce yourself, offer them a copy of your army roster and start the game promptly. We then expect players to treat each other positively and demonstrate good sportsmanship. After all, part of your Grand Tournament score is based on doing just this! .
We expect all players to see the game through to the very end and not concede, as doing so can impact tiebreakers and, ultimately, the final rankings. In the unlikely event that a player does concede before the game has reached its natural conclusion, then the conceding player earns a loss, no extra victory conditions (e.g. killed the enemy Leader), and zero victory points. The winning player records a crushing victory – which counts as a win and maximum extra victory conditions achieved! Thus the winner would record six points for their Grand Tournament score, and also record killed the enemy Leader and maximum victory points for that game.
