The Bromad Academy Mission System (BAMS) is a tool to release new ITS-like missions and light-touch rules patches (no profile changes) specifically to address perceived stagnation in ITS mission pool and negative play experiences resulting from rules interactions. It is not intended to "balance the game" or as a criticism of Corvus Belli's fantastic ITS offering.

BAMS is simply an alternate play mode intended to help grow the player base by attracting players to return to the game as well as pulling in new players and to provide currently invested veteran players with some fresh content to enjoy. We will also be soliciting and posting ratings on BAMS and ITS missions to help guide newer players in selecting and approaching missions (e.g. complexity rating, second turn power level, etc).

The BAMS intended usage model for tournaments is as an alternative to ITS--you use the rules patches and may include a mix of BAMS and ITS missions in the lineup. For non-tournament play, feel free to use the rules, missions, both, or neither. Talk to your TO and encourage them to give us feedback!
