SQUAD LEADER ACADEMY RULE CONVENTIONS

Revised 160922


These Rules conventions are in force in all SQLA events, subject to scenario SSR. "House Rules" as defined by others are not applicable to SQLA events. The documentation does not claim to be the 'official' rule interpretation by TAHGC (or MMP) nor can they be forced on a player outside SQLA events. These conventions supersede the SQLA Consolidated published Q&A version 2006b060725WBC should a conflict exist. (SQLA is part of the ongoing QA review team with MMP; conflicts will be resolved after a data driven document review). The purpose of this document is to provide a standard set of rules of SQLA tournament rules and minimize the impact of gray areas of the rulebooks as published from creating controversy in SQLA tournaments mid-game. This document will be revised regularly as warranted as new issues are identified. The justification for most conventions is based on clarifications contained in later rulebooks. The temptation to change actually change/optimization of the rule is restrained and deferred to a future rulebook revision. (Amplification/enhancement vs major change for consistency with system in later ruleset).

These conventions are not to be considered a consensus opinion of the SQL player community. This document is also useful to determine rule interpretation differences prior to starting a match with a new opponent. The majority of active veteran players use these conventions which be default leads to standardization. Every effort is made to be consistent with later rule sets which often clarify various rule sections. Creating conventions which must be 'unlearned' in later rule sets is unjustified. These conventions also act as a bridge between the last rulebooks of TAHGC (SQL4th, COI4th, COD1st & GIA2nd) and the unofficial next/SQLA editions. SQLA is actively working with MMP to generate next edition rulebooks with the goal of making obsolete the need for this document and compiled Q/A.
