Title: Checking on Interest for a Warband Tournament in 2017 (County Durham)
Post by: Spenno on 02 September 2016, 09:09:20 AM
Hello everybody,

The guys who ran Fated Festival this year which was at the Moor House Adventure Centre at West Rainton have been looking at expanding the games played at the 2017 event and have asked me to be a TO. I thought it would be cool to plan a Warband Tournament for this as it is a really cool game and a good idea to support a game that was designed so close to where the event is held.

Currently I can not give any dates as it is still in early planning and I am wanting to gauge interest in such an event so if anybody would be up for this please reply to this post.

If you have any questions please ask and I will do my best to respond quickly.


Thanks

Steven

As long as the date did not clash with work, I would be very interested, I only live about an hour away.

It's possible, any chance of stats for Dionsaours ? Got a large batch cheap at Gauntlet.

Cool, last years event was around the end of June but as soon as I get some form of dates I will update you. Hopefully with it will get a fair bit of interest from local people.

Thanks

Another question would people prefer it to be a standard Swiss style tournament or a story driven tournament with two factions?  Any other suggestions will be taken on board.

Thanks

Well if it is a story based tournament I might be able to throw something together   ;)

Does "Swiss" give more flexibility in army choices?

Swiss style would just be the standard rules for picking a force and players would be randomly matched game one and then after that 1st vrs 2nd, 3rd vrs 4th and so on after that.

If it was story driven then I could look into changing around army selection for each round if I use custom scenarios.

Swiss seems easier and will mean players can build the forces they want rather than being predetermined (unless you're planning to provide those forces)?!   :D

Perhaps a Swiss style but with the players divided into two "factions" so that there's an individual winner and a winning faction?  That would allow a bit of a narrative over the course of the games?

Yeah that sounds like the best mix of the two types of event.

Lol I do like painting but not that much ;)

Just to give people a heads up, I have spoke to the organizer and we have no idea yet for a date due to him being severely over worked at the moment, but will post as soon as I find out.

On a different note the Club that I go to in Sunderland are looking to run more tournaments next year. so once I get some more scenery made I will be looking to run one there to and will post it on here.

Thanks
