Still awesome indeed.

Look forward to see you again, James. Tell Kyle to get his butt over here! :)

The week of insanity is still a go, if we have a couple more guys for it.
I have blocked 10 days of vacation for it, and just wait for more players to actually book flights.

Let me know your travel details as soon as you have them.

See you in October.

Both Cubes are closed. I have switched the 10 participants for each cube, so that there are 2 not yet qualified players in each cube. The second cube also has everything you need for a Viking war.
Poor Frans Zwiers had to be seperated by Dennis and will probably be destroyed by a horde of war monging Danish, Swedish and Welsh Vikings. I doubt that there will be a third cube.

I have some good news and some bad news for all Day 1 Qualifier Tourney (16:00) players.

Every-one who enters the doodle poll (see below in my signature) till tomorrow 26th September 2012 will only have to pay 20 Euro entry fee. That of course includes all those already registered.

All the players for 16:00 Day 1 tourney who enter their name after that date (from 27 September on) will have to pay 30 Euro entry free.

We have send countless mails to any of the 30+ potential additional participants. Let's see if money is a better incentive. ;)

Let your buddies who are not registered yet know, and save them some money!!!!

The following info has been added in the Schedule (first post):

Worlds Day 1 Open Format Tournament (16:00)

Entry Fee: 30 Euro (20 Euro if you were registered till 26th September)


Thursday - 11 October 2012) - Thursday Evening Warm Up Tournament

Event Start: 21:00
Entry Fee: 10 Euro
Number of Games: 4
Tournament Style: Swiss Constructed (all V-Cards allowed)
Ranking/Pairing System: Differential

This will be a regular constructed tournament for all early arrivers on Thursday evening. Angelo will host it, and we will give 2 Byes out for this.


The Cube

A third and probably final cube has been added for Friday

The cube is basically Star Wars drafting for 10 people.
The rules and FAQ can be found here:
http://www.starwarsccg.org/index.php?op ... 30&t=22108

The first 2 cubes are closed. I have switched the 10 participants for each cube, so that there are 2 not yet qualified players in each cube (first registered are first served). The second cube also has everything you need for a Viking war. After the third and final cube is closed we will shuffle players again, so that all the Vikings can massacre each other.

All 3 cubes are closed, which means that no more players will be able to play in the draft. The byes were handed out accordingly, and the players were shuffled afterwards, so that all the Vikings can massacre each other. I had to put the lonely Belgium and American guys into the German and Viking cubes, but I hope they will enjoy it anyway (especially Veez with the Viking madness)!

Ok, when I first posted details about the Euro Worlds schedule, I said that we would play with the Top 12 players, if we reach 55 players on Day 2. It now looks like this is 99% certain. 49 players are already confirmed, and at least 10 will play Day 1. There are another 10-20 or so I am not sure about yet.

My reasons for expanding to Top 12 with 55 players were the following:

1. To give more players a chance to play on Day 3, and make the most of the probably only Worlds to be in Europe. This was my main reason.

2. Last year at Worlds there were approx. 55 players, and there were at least 2 players which played 6:2 that did not make the cut (our DDM being one of them), which imho sucked. 55 players was the maximum reachable player count I estimated for Worlds, so that was not a random number, but a possibility. I chose the number as an incentive, and because I imagined that we would have several 6:2s in that case.

To be honest I was thinking that it was a no brainer and that I was doing the majority a huge favor, but so far there has been more negative voices than positive ones. Granted, most of the negative voices either have an early flight on Sunday, or are assumed to be in Day 3 anyway (so that will be more difficult for them to predict their opponent).

The travel back early is a totally valid reason against Top 12 of course. Another reason mentioned has been "It's always been Top 8 so don't change it" (it hasn't actually always been Top 8, but I know what the guys mean).

So, if the majority is against Top 12, I will change that again, and we'll keep it at Top 8.
Enter your preferences till the end of this week in the doodle poll below.

Since it looks like it will be Top 12, I have added 2 columns in the doodle list for when to play the first round of Day 3. Either on Day 2 in the evening (after the regular tourney) or on Day 3 in the morning (10 am as planned). You get to decide till sunday this week (7th October).

Every-one add your opinion in this list (even if you've done so already):
http://www.doodle.com/ty3ww9av2dn4zk2n


I am sorry for making such a major decision that late. It was all decided, but some loud negative voices and especially that some players have flights going back in the early Sunday evening has led me to put this to a vote (however representative it may be in that time frame).
