    Tournaments with High Stakes Prizes

    We had a meeting this week. We are all excited. We have five referees ready to go. We have the tables and terrain ready to go. We have three food trucks ready to be on site. We have the players signed up and fees paid. We're not going to promote through GW right now because its a waste of time, as you said they only focus on the big events. This is our pilot event.
  3. They would need a substantial rules change and points drop to make them even close to tournament viable and optimal before you start seeing that.

    They do the yearly generals handbook and then the yearly faq. We're on the cusp of getting the faq.

    I considered buying a DoK army but at this point by the time that I get it painted and back to me I'd only have a few months to play with it before its inevitably nerfed. Had we a little more time in between nerfings, I'd definitely be all up on that army though. Undercost, highly optimized, and in ways a lot of players don't really "get" right away so have a harder time overcoming.

    I would say no. I wouldn't say that khorne summons are better than lizard summons. A debate could be had that they produce equally useful summoning, and the lizards can summon more of that. In our group and in the tournaments in our region, khorne armies have never really done well, particularly against things like seraphon. I have said many times that if they made the blood tithe mechanic give them more summoning ability (I think that they should be able to get about 1000 extra points on the table to be viable) that they'd definitely be on par though.

    I've never seen a khorne army out summon a seraphon army before. Or a Legion of Nagash army either to be honest.
  8. Thats why I pay top dollar to people that have won painting awards at the large scale. I hate painting or hobbying, but I want my army to look as good as possible.

    We are working on the logistics. Yes there will be referees in place and yes there will be a general pool of dice on the table to prevent people showing up with dice that tend to roll high all the time as well as a pair of tape measures that are ensured to have not been altered in any way (this past summer there was someone at a tournament my group went to that it was discovered had altered a tape measure so that he was getting an extra half of an inch for every normal inch)

    It brings more people out and is seen as more "legit". It allows for setting up a tournament circuit where good players could conceivably make a living by doing well in tabletop tournaments the same way as magic players can. It puts money into a pot and attracts endorsements and sponsorships, the same as esports.
  11. Skaven do not have any optimized tournament builds, i dont think its surprising that we dont see them here.
  12. Everyone has hobbies for different reasons. There are people that play sports for hobbies. They still have a goal of winning and trying to win the competition trophy at the end. There are people that competitively play other games for hobbies. Same rules apply. There are people that play games or sports for leisure and don't care who wins. Different rules apply. The problem arises when you tell me that how I'm doing my hobby is somehow wrong. If people want to play to relax and not care who wins, thats entirely on them and I dont say a word otherwise to them. On the flipside if people want to play to compete and prove that they are the best, thats entirely on them and you shouldn't say a word otherwise.
  13. Yeah. People that are roleplaying their army at the table kind of creep me out to be honest.

    We have a large store that can accomodate 20 tables so we can get upwards of 40 people ($4000). Our costs right now are 0. The other costs for food etc are being discussed. We need $1500 for prizes, and if we went over a certain threshold they'd start opening up other prizes for third and fourth place. Also gift cards to the store.

    When I travel to the big tournaments, I pay about on average $500 which includes cost of entry, hotel, etc. For the local people (most of the atendees will be local) this is actually a lot cheaper than traveling to Chicago or Las Vegas and the potential reward greater.
