Updated December 15, 2001
The 2051 WADA Car Wars League is a tournament where
Car Wars players around the world compete against
each other for championship points. At the end of this tournament,
the participant with the most championship points will be declared
the WADA World Champion Autoduelist of 2001.
The 2051 WADA Car Wars League will begin January
01, 2001 and end on December 31, 2001.
The last day to submit results of Car Wars games
for the 2051 WADA Car Wars League is January 31,
Groundhog Day, February 02, 2002, will be the date when the
standings of this tournament are final and a champion is declared.
All games in the 2051 WADA CWL must have a minimum of four
players for any championship points to be awarded.
Autoduelists may use four events per month to use for
earning championship points in the WADA Car Wars
League. A multi-round tournament is considered one event. All of
the Car Wars games at a convention are
considered one event.
Any type of Car Wars game can be played in the WADA
League, however it is recommended most events should be duels,
races, or scenarios.
Most events should have budgets that follow one of the AADA
Divisional classes listed below.
Division 5 ($0 - $5,000)
The rules used are up to the discretion of
the event's referee and players, but WADA recommends games be
operated according to the rules found in Car Wars
Compendium Second Edition, Classic Car Wars,
Uncle Albert's Catalog From Hell, and rules that
can be found on the Steve
Jackson Games Car Wars Web site.
Division 10 ($5,001 - $10,000)
Division 15 ($10,001 - $15,000)
Division 20 ($15,001 - $20,000)
Division 25 ($20,001 - $25,000)
Division 30 ($25,001 - $30,000)
Division 40 ($30,001 - $40,000)
Division 60 ($40,001 - $60,000)
Division 80 ($60,001 - $80,000)
Division 100 ($80,001 - $100,000)
Variant or house rules are permitted in a WADA League match as
long as all players in the game agree to those rules changes.
Every player in a WADA League battle receives championship points
based on their finishing position and the total number of players
Entering Combat: [ (number of
entrants + 1) - place finished ] * round of the tournament. For
example, in a 10-vehicle race, the first, second, and tenth
drivers that cross the finish line will receive 10 points, 9
points, and 1 point respectively for participation.
To reward courage under fire, the top
finishing drivers in every game will gain bonus points.
First Place: 5 * number of players
* round of tournament
In a gaming group or demonstration session,
the round of the tournament shall be considered as 1.
Second Place: 2 * number of players * round
Third Place: 1 * number of players * round
of tournament. Awarded only if there are 6+ players in event.
Fourth: 0.5 * number of players * round of
tournament. Awarded only if there are 10+ players in event.
In preliminary matches, the round of the tournament shall be
considered as 1 and each successive round will increase by 1.
In a multi-round tournament, no more than half of the players in a
lower round may proceed to next higher round. If a tournament's
organization does not adhere to this rule, all rounds of the
tournament will be given a level multiplier of 1.
Championship points for ties are awarded by adding together the
championship points for all of the positions in the tie divided by
the number of players in the tie. Both victory and participation
points are used in this formula. For example, duelists in a
three-way tie for first place in a 10-person duel would normally
receive 60 (50 + 10), 29 (20 + 9), and 18 (10 + 8) points if the
tie did not exist. These drivers would receive 35.67 [(60 + 29 +
18) / 3] points because of the tie.
Vehicular kills will be recorded but as of January 2001 they will
not affect championship points totals.
- Firepower Kills (FK)
- Mobility Kills (MK)
- Completed Kills (CK)
- Total Kills (TK)
Only Completed and Total Kills will be used for kill records in
the 2051 WADA League.
October 2001 Update: For simplicity, Completed Kills are now
considered as Total Kills for kill totals, but autoduelist records
will show Completed Kills as half-kills in each event listing.
American Autoduel Association
AADA membership is not required to be a
participant in this tournament.
Winners of the AADA events listed below will
receive bonus points to their championship point totals.
If a participant wins a match that is
considered both a Chapter Championship and a Regional
Championship, only the 25-point bonus for winning a Regional
Championship will be awarded. The winner of this type of event
does not receive double the amount of participation
- Chapter Dueling Championship: +10
- Chapter Racing Championship: +10
- Regional Dueling Championship: +25
- Regional Dueling Championship: +25
- World Dueling Championship: +50
- World Racing Championship: +50
December 2001 Update: If Chapter Championships for the 2052 AADA
Season are held in the third and fourth quarters of 2051, the
events will be counted for the 2051 WADA League and will
be counted for the 2052 WADA League.
