The Irish WTC committee is proud to announce that there will be a Solo Masters event running at the WTC 2015. This will be taking place during the WTC team event in the Killarney Conference Centre, Ireland on the 18th – 20th September. The Solo Masters will be a 128 player event following the 2015 Masters rules pack and is a qualifier event for the European Invitational event at Clogcon 2015.
Ticket prices will be €175 per player, and will include shared accommodation for 2 nights, dinner on the Friday night; breakfast, lunch and dinner on the Saturday; and breakfast and lunch on the Sunday.
Tickets sales will be split into 2 waves, both of 64 players. The initial wave will be limited to 8 players per country served on a first-come-first-served basis for a 1 month waiting period. This is to ensure that there is an opportunity for players from all over the globe to attend. When the country cap is reached, any additional players from that country applying will be put into a draw for tickets after the waiting period. After 1 month, if the 64 player spots have not been filled, names will be drawn at random from the pool of players expressing interest in attending.
The first wave of tickets will go on sale March 1st, 2015 at 1800 GMT. This is to give players from the West Coast of America through the eastern reaches of Europe an equal chance at tickets. The second wave of tickets will not have a capped entry and will be put on sale on the 1st of April 2015 also at 1800 GMT. Tickets can be purchased by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org starting on March 1st with your name and country. You will receive a return email with payment instructions once the team sorts out all the country entries.
We understand that some people wanting to attend the Solo Masters may wish to switch to their national team if they get chosen. Be advised that refunds for your Solo Masters tickets will only be granted up until May 31st.
The Warmachine European Invitational
The Warmachine European Invitational is an invitation-only singles tournament which pairs the top players from around Europe to compete against one another in a demonstration of Europe’s best in the game of Warmachine and Hordes.
The Invitational is seeded through 16 Qualifier events which will take place during the course of 2015. Qualifiers were chosen by seeking out the strongest events in multiple countries in the region throughout the course of the year. The winner of each Qualifier earns a spot in the Invitational. Alternate Qualifiers are also announced for each subregion within Europe in case the player who won a Qualifier cannot make the Invitational. Qualified players will be seeded into a predetermined bracketed system to promote the interaction of various subregions within Europe.
ClogCon (Dec 11-13, Rotterdam, The Netherlands) will host the 2015 Invitational. ClogCon will also host a Last Chance Qualifier (LCQ) for the Invitational during the course of the event. All Qualified players earn free admission to ClogCon.
