And too bad I'll be there Thurs-Sat and not Sunday!

Will there be exciting new things on the DoW stand for BattleLore fans? Scottish Wars? Creatures? Heroes? Please drop us a hint, Franck!

So how did the championship go? Who won? What was the format? Would love to hear some details.

I participated in the championship qualifier tournament. The format was like this:

Each player was assigned a side (English / French) and he kept this side through the tournament. Then there were two preliminary games (Scenario 2 and Scenario 5). Points were earned for win, number of enemy flags (red flags counting more than blue etc.). If there still would be a draw points were awarded for the majority on one of the flanks.

After these 2 games, the best English faced the best French in a final scenario (custom, but totally symmetric scenario).

I had several problems with this tournament format:

If you didn't make it to the final, you played just two games. (I traveled a total of 6 hours there and back on train. Playing only 2 scenarios was kind of meager)

You can reach the final on 2 lost scenarios (being the best on 1 side) while players with 2 wins end up at the bottom of the ranking. I'm not sure, but I think it happened at Essen. At least in the first round no French did win. So a person with 3 losses out of 3 games got second, and I placed 7th with 2 wins.

Some games dragged a long time. There has to be a time limit (it wasn't in Essen).

The owner of my local shop held a tournament some time ago, and his format was much better:

We played 2 scenarios, each one two times on different sides against different opponents according to the Swiss system.

You had to win with 2 points advance.

There was a time limit of 75 minutes.

Games won within the time limit counted more than games won due to the limit taking effect. I think it was 3 points for a normal win, 2 points for a win due to time limit, and 1 point for draw or win with only one advance.

This was a very good tournament. You played 4 games within 6 hours. The winner had to win at least 3 out of 4. Imbalances in the scenarios were neutralized by playing each side.
