Looking Forward—WTC 2023!

Hello everyone,

While the WTC 2022 is well underway, we have also started to look forward, to 2023.
The committee is henceforth opening applications to organize the next edition of the World Team Championship. If you, or your country, are interested to host this event, please send an email to warmahordes.wtc@gmail.com

We advise any potential applicants to reach out to some venues that are large enough to host upwards of 300 people. After applying, your bid will need to contain information about reachability of the venue, e.g. close to an airport and/or international railway, as well as expected price for a single all-in ticket. Of course you should make sure that these prices also cover the costs you will have to make, such as insurance, deposits, price to rent the hotel/venue, possible swag bags.
If you have any questions about the logistics of it all, feel free to reach out to us, and Christophe Dirckx in particular, and we’ll be happy to put you on the right track.

We look forward to hearing from you, and making the next WTC the smashing success it deserves to be.

Regards,
/The WTC Committee

Ukraine

We have been contacted by the Ukrainian team with the unfortunate, yet very understandable news that, due to the war raging in their country, they will not be able to participate in the event.


The committee laments the current events that cause great human suffering. Our thoughts are with them and everyone that has been caught up in this terrible act of violence. We sincerely hope that this ordeal will conclude soon and that we can see our friends safe and sound again.

43 Teams Registered

With current information we have 43 teams signed up and prepayed, this means that as long as all transfers come through we will have 64 available spots for the WTC. We are waiting to confirm all the funds and will keep you informed at the end of the week regarding how we will proceed.

Thanks to everyone making this possible!

Payment deadline tomorrow

We would hereby like to remind you that the deadline for pre-payments is coming up. If we don’t have 40 teams that have deposited their pre-payments by 15 March 23:59:59 UTC, we will be forced to limit the event to 32 spots. Worse, if there is not enough interest, we might have to cancel the event altogether and refund your deposits.

The WTC can not exist without your enthusiasm and support, so please give us a sign to go ahead by paying on time. You may still find all relevant information here: Payments

Note that international payments take some time, so if you haven’t started the transfer yet, or don’t see your updated payment at Participants then please feel free to email us with proof of your payment to ensure that we can go ahead with the event. We hope to see you all in October.

Repayment information

We finally have more info about the refunds that will be issued for the WTC in Poland. Until now we were waiting for more info from the hotel, so we do apologize for the delay.

First, as a reminder, we would like to note that this refund in no way affects your registration or pre-payment for the WTC 2022 in Belgium! As we stated before, these 2 events are organized by a different group of people, so we need a separate registration and payment for the next edition. For more information check our previous post

Now onto the news: due to inflation of the Polish currency, not at all helped by the current war in Ukraine going on, we will be unable to refund you the full amount. As mentioned before, we will be able to return about 70% of your original pre-payment. The organization will try to absorb as much of the transfer fees as they can, but due to these costs, as well as currency conversions, we can’t provide an exact number at this time.

In the coming days/weeks, Szymon will reach out to everyone to confirm the invoice and after that, start the refund process, starting with the bank transfers and then moving on to Paypal. Due to the required administration, we hope to have the bank transfers sorted by the end of March, and the rest by the end of April. If you have any more questions, you may contact the Polish organizer directly at wtc@qualigeeks.eu

We know this is terribly inconvenient while we’re also asking everyone to pre-pay for the new event. We also wish it could be different, but the new organization can not afford to take the financial risk by not asking for pre-payments, as we don’t have access to the money that was paid for the WTC in Poland.

Hoping to be of service,

/The WTC Committee

Registered teams 2022-02-24

With a bit over a week passed since pre registration opened we now have 22 registered teams, with hopefully many more to come. The WTC participants list is now updated with registered teams. Please double check so your team/country is on the list if you think you should have been registered.

The registration information is updated continually (ever 5 minutes). Payment updates are done manually so might have a bit larger delay but should show up within a couple of days of the payment being received.

Remember that you need to register even if your team was registered for the 202 WTC.

We look forward to seeing our community again in October!

WTC Update 2022-02-14

With the WTC being back in Belgium and things moving a bit again this homepage will become more active. The first information regarding that is coming here.

First of all this site has been updated to reflect the new dates and locations, if anything is missing let us know. Some details are still being worked on but we will keep you updated when we have more information.

First and foremost registration opens on February 15th! The number of pre registration we get before 15th of March will decide the size of the event. If we have less than 40 pre registered teams by then we will have to cap the event at 32 teams, otherwise we will open up for the full 64 teams. This is done to ensure the event can be held without economic risks for the committee as a larger number of teams requires us to book more of the hotel to have space for all tables. We hope you are as eager as us and the 40 team limit will be easily surpassed.

Preregistration is done through the following link:

Registration form

When your registration is confirmed you will secure your spot by paying the pre-registration fee. For more payment information see  Payment information

Due to the unique circumstances around team registrations this year, we will grant first pick to all teams that had paid their deposits for the 2020 edition, regardless of the amount of teams per country. Countries that have not pre-registered any teams, will be limited to 2 teams for now. Information regarding additional teams will be posted here on March 15th

The player pack can be found here:
Playerpack 2022


We also have some updates regarding terrain. We have included most of the new terrain forms for SR 2021 and you can find the information regarding that here:

WTC Update 05.02.22

This will be a bit of a long post, as we’ve got a lot of news to share regarding WTC 2022.

Unfortunately, on 28 January 2022, Szymon received notification that the original venue where WTC 2022 was to be held is scheduled to be closed and demolished May 2022. Accordingly, all events scheduled after April 2022 have been canceled by the hotel.

However, we are very happy to also announce that, even with the incredibly short notice, the Belgian community has stepped up and taken on the task of organizing and hosting WTC 2022.

WTC 2022 will be held 8-9 October 2022 at Floreal in Blankenberge, Belgium.

What does that mean about the pre-payments from 2020?

Pre-payments from 2020 will be partially refunded, around 70-75% of the initial value of prepayment. Szymon is working diligently with the hotel to provide a refund and an email with more information about the refund, information about the non-refundable costs, and how the refund process will work will go out between 15-28 February 2022.

When do we need to pay for WTC 2022 pre-payments? Final payments?

Pre-payments for WTC 2022 are due 15 March 2022. Final payments are due 1 July 2022.

How many teams will there be?

If less than 40 teams preregister for the event by 15 March 2022, we will need to limit the size of the event to 32 teams. If more than 40 or more teams register for the event, we will have a full 64-team event.

What is the cost for WTC 2022?

The cost per player is €280 for Friday evening through Sunday morning. This includes lodging Friday evening through Sunday morning and dinner Friday; breakfast, lunch, and dinner on Saturday; and breakfast and lunch on Sunday. If a player wishes to remain at Floreal Sunday evening until Monday morning, the cost is an additional €80. This includes lodging and dinner Sunday evening.

The cost for an accompanying individual who is NOT participating in the WTC tournaments is €250 for Friday evening through Sunday morning and an additional €80 for Sunday evening.
