Update & Plus Ones

 

Current subscriptions

For now, it looks like the event will be fully booked! With only 5 team slots remaining for each WTC.

WTC WMH > 59 out of 64 teams (295 out of 320 players)
WTC GB > 43 out of 48 teams (129 out of 144 players)
Solo WMH > 29 out of 48 players
Solo GB > 3 out of 16 players

Please keep in mind that for WMH the 3rd teams need to be confirmed by the WTC committee. So it’s best to wait for confirmation before any payment is done for those teams (13/04).

Also, feel free to poke some players in or outside your local community to form an extra team (if allowed) or compete in the solos.

Plus One + Prepayment

The “Plus One” option is for those in need. In case you are out of wife points/credits and you can’t justify your absence towards your girlfriend/spouse, you can simply subscribe her so she can tag along. The price of a plus one is 210€.

The prepayment for a solo is 40€ and can be transferred along with the subscription (due 27/04).

The price of a solo is 230€ (standard fee). The prepayment for a solo is 40€ and can be transferred along with the subscription (due 27/04).

Prepayment & 3rd team/solo subscription!

The committee would like to apologize for the delay in communication about pricing/payments. It took some time to double check the costs and we had to wait for an EU bank account.

We know that some of you expected a lower cost compared to last year. The total cost is 230€ per person, so 690€ for a GB team and 1.150€ for a WMH team. As we want to be completely transparent on the costs we make, we’ve created the breakdown below and provide you with some additional information per cost element.

  • Overnight stay: The cost per night per person is pretty decent. Please keep in mind that we rent out the entire hotel which means that we had to calculate an average cost per night across all of the available room types.
  • Lunch/Dinner: 4 meals (buffet), all you can eat. Soft drinks included.
  • Gaming area: Some people believe that when you rent out an entire hotel you get the conference rooms for free.
    • This was not the case. It’s perfectly possible to rent out the entire hotel whilst another event party rents out the conference area in parallel.
  • Gaming equipment: We will drive most of the equipment from Belgium to Poland which already reduces the costs for this item drastically. However, some additional equipment needs to be purchased as well as new objectives, zones, etc… which are typically handed out at the end of the event.
  • Event agency: The Polish organization decided to use an event organizer called Relago to help them set-up the WTC. Please realize that they don’t have the seasoned crew we have in Belgium and therefor had to call in some extra help.

However, there is good news! We are negotiating with the hotel and can confirm that the price of a consumption and the cost of an extra overnight stay will be lower then last year, probably balancing out the extra 20€. On top, the Sangate hotel is located right next to the Warsaw airport, ruling out excessive transportation costs.

WMH Third Team Priority for 2018

After soliciting teams from every country, the WTC will accept applications from countries for third teams.  The priority for these teams is detailed here.  We’ve consolidated a list, and are making final confirmation with captains to determine the number of spots we will be offering.

If you spot an inconsistency in this list, or have concerns, feel free to message the WTC Committee directly either on Facebook, or via email (Warmahordes.WTC@gmail.com)

*Poland, as host country, gets automatic priority for a third team
**In previous years China has received credit for multiple timezones based on size.  We’re continuing to give them this credit for geographical scale

The new WTC committee members are …

Hello,

Thank you all for voting. The newly elected members of the WTC Committee for the next two years are:

  1. Kim Pipers (Belgium) (22 votes)
  2. Steve Herck (Belgium) (21 votes)
  3. Tim Banky (Canada) (20 votes)
  4. Myk Myers (England) (17 votes)

As you can see, that is one more than previously advertised. Since two Belgians were elected, Christophe Dirckx decided to bow out, to bring balance to the Force Committee.

Together with resident strategic advisor Tim Grubbert (from German persuasion) and two more yet to be announced logistics members from the Polish organizers, we wish them all the best!

-Christophe, Klaas, Michael, Norbert, Teemu and Tomas

WTC Committee Election for 2017

Hello,

 

A WTC cycle has come to an end, it’s time for renewal of the committee. Members who have served two years step down, but can be re-elected.

At this time, the terms of Michael Winters and Teemu Aro have expired. Klaas Luyckx has also elected to step down from his position early.

Therefore 3 spots are open for election to the Committee by the current team Captains – both Guild Ball and Warmachine/Hordes captains. This is a call for players interested in being considered for the spots to submit their names to the Committee via the email address: committee@wmh-wtc.com. The deadline for the nomination process is Sunday, October 29th, 2017.

The Committee is looking to add people with a Guild Ball profile, to further harmonize and integrate the event across games. However, competence and commitment is more important than which game one plays, so we don’t intend to enforce any quota. That being said, we aim to add at least one committee member with a clear Guild Ball background.

The Captains will have 2 weeks to vote on the nominees (deadline November 12th, 2017).

Candidates should submit any information that they feel would be relevant for the Captains to hear to help inform their vote. It is recommended to include your name, city/state/country, relevant game qualifications, real world skills you bring, and why you would like to be considered for one of the Committee’s positions.

Responsibilities for Committee members are to discuss and manage issues that come up with regards to the management of the event, in conjunction with the hosting team who are primarily responsible for the logistics of the event. Time commitments vary depending where in the process of the event is, but expect to spend 1 evening a week on average on WTC matters (spread over the course of the week) for a full year. Expect to spend time (non-exhaustive list) on communication with the public and with game publishers, chasing sponsors, coordinating judges and rules, coordinating social media and streaming, and overseeing logistical issues.

Feel free to contact a current Committee member if you are seriously interested and have some more specific questions.

 

Looking forward to your candidacies!

-The WTC Committee
