WMH: CG Release date shift

Hey folks,
 
We’ve had a few questions about the recent release date change for a few CG models. This year, we’re intending to honor the list of models we indicated would be legal. We’ve confirmed with the players using these models that they have access to them and will have no trouble playing their submitted lists. No submitted lists will be changed.
 
This does not represent a policy change, per se, simply the cleanest solution to the problem this year. We will leave the issue of how this challenge may be resolved in the future to be determined by a future committee.

WMH: WTC seeks a few more Judges

Hey folks,

As the event dates narrow in and we confirm final plans for staffing, we’d like to open a wide call for volunteers with a Warmachine expertise.  If you’ve previously been involved in table-judging at the WTC, or you’d like to get involved helping out at this premier level event, send us an email.

Selected volunteers will receive accommodation and food all weekend, and the thanks of the Warmachine community.  This event isn’t possible without your help!  If you or someone you know might like to help us out, please contact us and let us know.

Guildball Rulespack

Hey Guild Ball players,

Sorry for the delay publishing the Rulespack.  Here is is, live and available for your enjoyment.  Edit – an older version of the rulsepack draft was published by mistake.  The up-to-date and correct version is here: WTC_GB_Rulespack_2018

On a second note, it is time to start getting your player roster in. So either captains can get their team rosters filled in 3 times or ask their players to do this individually.

Please use the form below:

Team submission

Remember, no captain may be shared within a WTC-team.

In case of the sturdy Blacksmiths, you have to elect 3 possible captain-masters in your roster, please add Cpt. before the masters name. (e.g. Cpt. Ferrint, Cpt. Burnish and Cpt. Anvil)

Warmachine: Rulespack and List Lock Dates

The WMH Rulespack has been released, updated for this year.  This is later this year than we would have liked it to be, and we’re sorry for that.  It answers a few specific questions that came up last year, but is in most ways consistent with years previous.  Let us know if there are concerns — this may still be adjusted before the event.

Also, a reminder that list lock is August 20th.  Captains will be receiving emails to add lists via Conflict Chamber in the next day or so.  If you’re a captain or local coordinator who has not received a Conflict Chamber link, let us know ASAP.

Guildball players, expect a Rulespack and details on how to submit player teams shortly.

Updated schedule

Based upon some feedback of the GB community we decided to adjust the GB planning a bit. The main idea was to make sure we don’t arrive all at once at the lunch/dinner buffets and to free up some time for non-WTC games.

This will be the final version. We will not make further changes (we can’t please everyone, but we aimed to please the vast majority of the attendees).

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.
