Updated March 09, 2002
The 2052 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 2002.
The 2052 WADA Car Wars League will begin January 01,
2002 and end on December 31, 2002.
The last day to submit results of Car Wars games for
the 2052 WADA Car Wars League is January 15, 2003.
Groundhog Day, February 02, 2003, will be the date when the
standings of this tournament are final and a champion is declared.
All games in the 2052 WADA Car Wars League 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.
Results of events should be submitted, using the WADA Duel Report
Form, within 30 days of events to Michael
Owen, the WADA Webmaster.
Please state "WADA League 2052," title of event reported, and
date of event in the subject line of your e-mail message. For
example, "WADA League 2052: Jan 8th AAIE Div 10 Duel." These
accurate labels will decrease the time necessary for the
processing of your data.
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
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
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 2002 they will
not affect championship points totals.
Only Completed and Total Kills will be used for kill records in the
2052 WADA League.
- Firepower Kills (FK)
- Mobility Kills (MK)
- Completed Kills (CK)
- Total Kills (TK)
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 100-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 points.
- Chapter Dueling Championship: +50
- Chapter Racing Championship: +50
- Regional Dueling Championship: +100
- Regional Racing Championship: +100
- World Dueling Championship: +250
- World Racing Championship: +250
If the winners of any 2051 Championships regain their titles, they
will receive bonuses for retaining their titles equivalent to the
awards above. For example, if John Blaylock, the current AADA World
Dueling Champion, wins the 2052 AADA WDC, Mr. Blaylock would receive
250 bonus points for winning the 2052 tournament and 250
bonus points for keeping his title.
If Chapter Championships for the 2053 AADA Season are held in the
third and fourth quarters of 2052, the events will be counted for
the 2052 WADA League and will be counted for the 2053 WADA
Questions, concerns, and comments about the 2052 WADA League should
be submitted via e-mail to the WADA Webmaster and posted on Car
Wars discussion forums listed below.
