Hi guys,

I don't frequent the forums much so apologies for the delay in spotting this (I posted originally just to advertise the event). I'm easiler to get ahold of on BGG (Chriz007) or FB (Chris Brett).

Unfortantly the event was cancelled by UKGE due to lack of booking, tournament must have a minimum of 12 players or UKGE will not allow the event to go ahead. Those who did book should have received a refund from the UKGE team.
I think one of the issues we have is that it takes 1.5 hours per round for tournament play, which means we are looking at an 8 hour tournament which will clash will a lot of the more-popular tournaments.

Speaking for the UK player base, we do have some big pockets of players; Scotland, Cardiff, Telford, Bristol and London are the main ones I'm aware of. Personally, I became an ambassador to help grow the game I love; I believe this is happening - not as fast as German or the USA - we just need to keep introducing new people to the game.

As for UKGE '18 - I'm looking to run a MW Academy beginners tournament, where people don't need to own a copy of the game to partake; so hopefully that encourage more people to give it ago.

Hi Guys,

Add a few more spellbooks to the list, next year I think I'll ask for them via email prior to the event!

Speaking of next year: any feedback from the Stand, Tournament or Organised Play that was run?

I know some people on BBG said Friday wasn't a good night to hold it, maybe Saturday evening would be better? I'm thinking evening rather than day time because we could simply use the open gaming hall, that said with the venue changes next year, there should be more space for events.

I'm also thinking that next years Tournament should be Domination rather than standard, as I feel this would better fit the time constraints of a tournament, but ultimately Id love to hear what you guys think

Atm, I have no interest at all in any kind of prizes, I just would like to play a nice tournament with as many people as possible. Sadly, there are none in Germany *sniff*
My impression is that this might be true for most others too  - although one ofc shouldn't judge others by one's own standards.  ;)

Yeah, I think you've hit the nail on the head here. I guess I deem $18 as cheap because we have no MW tournaments here, and yes I too would have paid that just to play regardless of prize pool. I've paid £30 ($51.12) to play a Warhammer 40k tournament before, and they were no prizes. I still stand by my comment of people being unwise / silly about turning down the chance to play in a tournament because of the cost or time, I bet there are some people kicking themselves about their decision not to play.

Again, I wasn't aiming my comment at any one person. I own an iPad so yes the iPad prize wouldn't have attracted me to pay, BUT like I said the art work would have. What it comes down to is people placing a value of 'Worth' on something, personally $18 seems cheap but then if the standard is for tournaments to charge $5 at Origins then AW shouldn't have put up such a good prize in order to keep the price down.

It was a personal insult to you, it was a general frustration at people in general.

So from your post I gather that the precedence is for cheap tournaments and so to ask more is to much of a culture stock for most people. is that with a cheap prize pool or no prize pool? In which case it should have been researched better. Tournments at UKGE are around £6 ($10.22). So I don't see the stretch so bad a thing. Perhaps instead of the iPad they should have given a copy of FiF away to the winner.

Some people are really stupid, $18 (£10.55) is cheap, I've paid double that to play in MTG sealed events, yes I'm getting 6 booster for that money but the prize pool here is so good. Winning an iPad is great, but what would have attracted me was the chance to win the beautiful art work! Staying you don't have time to play a game you love at a games convention is another stupid reason IMO, it's not like the event is only there for one day. The fact that they winner just started playing and won, hats off to him! That's the right attitude and it paid off!

I recently attended the UKGE a growing convention which is now chasing the numbers of some of the American larger conventions, and people there where crying out for the opportunity to play in a national MW tournament. Give the support to the UK if the people of Origins are too lazy to enter tournaments!

*note this rant is my own personal opinion*

I really hope Arcane Wonders are reading this thread! I love the idea of a mummy style necro !
I also really want to see novels and comics, it would also be cool if they used the Arkham horror/mtg models for those; ie they come with special alternative art promos.
