Notes

The 2016 season was shorter than normal due to future seasons starting immediately after the Interplanetary rather than based on calendar years. As such, it only ran from January to the end of August. It was the first season to use an approximation of an Elo ranking.

Season 8 Classic Tournament Pack

Notes

Season 8 is the first season to run from one Interplanetary to the next.

It was also permitted the use of the ALIVE Group and Scarface & Cordelia in most human armies.

TAGLINE packs contain almost everything from a Season 8 Classic Tournament Pack plus:

  • "Eduardo". Exclusive Tikbalang miniature.
  • Umbra Samaritans miniature.
  • Postcard of the stay of Toni Macayana at Paradiso.
  • Exclusive Toni Macayana Patch.
  • 2 "Toni is dead" badges.
  • 2 ALIVE badges.
  • 3 Patches (including 2 Toni Macayana patches) replacing those from the Season 8 pack.

Notes

TAGLINE[2] is a narrative event where every player in a tournament can immerse themselves and participate in part of the Infinity background. In TAGLINE the players are the main cast of an important episode of Paradiso’s military campaign, the combat action designated “Operation: The Grid”, which includes the death of Toni Macayana and the thirty days following this operation.

Take your Combi Rifle and take control of the story!

The narrative event TAGLINE is divided into five chapters, each corresponding to a Tournament Round. Three of these chapters are mandatory (Chapters one, two, and five) while the other two (Chapters three and four) are optional.

Mandatory chapters must always be played. If you want to organize a four round tournament, the Organizer must choose one extra chapter, be it the third or the fourth. In the case of a five round tournament, the Organizer must include all of the chapters. The maximum number of rounds allowed for this type of tournament is five.

Each chapter includes a small piece of narrative background, as well as specifics on how the mission must be played and the extras that can be applied to each mission and tournament round.

The narrative event TAGLINE is not compatible with tournament extras from the ITS Rules unless otherwise specified by a chapter’s rules. Likewise, the basic rules of an ITS Tournament must be followed, with the exception of the preselected scenarios.
