Tier-01: Orbital Platform
Founders: ciago, CrankyDay, dlow, Facsantos, HomerJr, jorchard, Kamillian, Matney, rocksbg, Scrooge, TAGames, thetexan

Charter:

This tier is the first place where prior success is a requirement to compete. This tier is fed by a steady stream of Entry Level Tier division winners and runners up, providing a tense do-or-die competitive environment. This will be the only tier where the list of founders will be larger than the size of a division. All players who are promoted from Tier-00 during the first cycle through the initial player queue will be considered a founder of this tier.

Divisions within the Tier will have a limited format range, primarily featuring V-1BHF, and derivatives (no Gambits or Events). Alternative formats may be used as necessary to accommodate players lacking certain expansions.

This tier began in the Transition Phase. During that phase, only 1 player was relegated from each division rather than the normal 2 players. This was intended to help stabilize the tier itself, as well as support creating the next tier up.

The tier has now entered the Stabilized Phase, with 2 players relegated from each division. The division size will be 7 players to compensate.

Scrooge sent me a BF challenge that I accepted, not realizing the division is BHF. We're only two turns in each, should we play it out or play a BHF match after this?

first recorded match of this tier:

CrankyDay defeats Facsantos - GG

I got lucky with the second and third deck shuffles, and was able to step up to quite a powerful deck. I offer you filhos as a peace offering.

Me wasting that 6 trade in two ships instead of just buying that big blue one was a suicide move on my part!
Not much adept of filhós, i rather go for a nice pastel de nata.
And filhós without the accent is a synoninoum of children in my language so, well, offering a child as a peace sacrífice is a mighty offer indeed!

As soon as I bought that stupid Ark I realized that I needed the +2 Authority more. Good game Panda.

dlow over Kamillian in a 45-turn epic. What a game!! Ebbed and flowed, as I kept whittling away at the base/discard wall, while blue kept me alive long enough to scrap out. One of the best/most-challenging games I've played in a long, long time. I thought I might have thrown it away half a dozen turns before the end, as I didn't trash out and go for the "quick" win, on the basis that I wasn't odds-on to draw the rest of the damage next hand...oh look, I did. Bother.

Great game, mate.

Sorry - I was going to let that one lapse, since it was in the wrong format, and challenge back in BHF. Just trying to clear an active queue before I got around to it!

My mistake issuing wrong format sorry. I just used same as games I played on last tier.

(Although I was under impression it was any format between V-BHF??)

New challenge from dlow accepted

Challenge to matney lapsed. New challenge issued.

V-BHF is the set format for this tier (check out the Challonge page info). It's not a range: it a specifier of the base set (V) and expansions (BHF) to be used. Allows for when Colony Wars enters as a new base set option gulp

Well played by you, that game - I tried something different (that early Capitol World), and it failed miserably in the face of all that scrap that turned up for you! I should have just taken the Construction Hauler instead

Yeah, sorry for any confusion jumping to using the new format format before the bgg league has. the format is now {Deck}-{Expansions} where the Deck can be original vanllia, V; eventually colony wars, W; or both combined, VW. and the Expansion codes are still G1BEHF.

dlow (P1, turn 29) over Matney in a nailbitingly good game. I had the card-drawing, Matney had the scrap, and it came down to the last couple of hands. One of those games where I had to keep hoping Matney didn't quite have enough damage to finish me through my (very thin) base wall; and that I drew into enough damage to get through Matney's rather more substantial one!
