They will have strong beer and wine on our evening. Because it is a closed company. It will be just us rrom the tournament.

If you are under 18, please write so in the letter. This is info for the drinking and eating venue on saturday evening. If you are under 18 it will be no problem being with us on that evening but you will not be able to purchase alchol.

Please only post in English for all the other non-swedish speaking people who will read and post.

Sponsor
The swedish game store Alphaspel will be attending the tournament both days and will also sponsor the tournament with some additional prices. They will bring an (almost) complete stock of Warmachine/Hordes items as well as soda & candy (no peanuts, we promise). If there is anything you need it might be a good idea to pre-order it from their website. Choose "Övrig utlämning" and "Betala vid upphämtning" as your delivery/payment options. Write "Swinnish Warmachine" as a comment, and the items will be brought to the convention for you. You pay on site, but it is yet unclear if card payments can be accepted, perhaps you will need cash.

Order miniatures to the tournament
If you haven't checked their website yet it is time to do so! With over 10.000 different items in stock Alphaspel has one of northern Europes widest ranges of games. Find out more at www.alphaspel.se

Hello, this is Philipp (the water boy) of Team Switzerland at the OETC. Thanks for the invitation to this tournament, we are busy putting it into our agenda and thinking up lists.  :)

BTW, it's nice you have this thread in English, but registering can be a difficult process for foreigners. My problem was that I saw the captcha for the first time in my life, but once I had figured out one has to move the tiles to the correct places to complete the image, I was able to register. Interestingly, Google Translate also translates some pages automatically, but others aren't translated at all. Maybe it is possible to install the English language file to this forumsoftware so international users can switch the language upon arrival?

Either way, I'd like to thank Team Sweden again for the awesome games we had. I am looking forward to more!  ;D

Hello again!

I also really enjoyed playing against team Swizerland although my Butcher ate alot of Arrows and bolts with a small touch of a kiss until he died. It is really nice to register and be able to write in the forum. However it will not be necessary if you want to register.

Later during this week I will post an email in the front of the thread which you will be able to apply to. When this email is up the registration is open.

I hope I will see most of the Team Switzerland in Stockholm.

and again. We will have a cap at 64 people so it is the first ones who gets it.

So, after the Oetc is gone, I felt a strong urge to come over here and thank Alfred for playing against my evayl in a such great game. For me the best and funniest I played over the complete tournament.
It was a pleasure to meet you guys and to play against you.

Eva, my little photoslave has placed her pictures over here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/88185663@N05/sets/72157631715037508/
so if you are interestet in looking - have fun with it.

I'm going to tell my game Club about this event and trying to incite them, so hopefully myself and one or two others participate on this Tourney. If it is not possible (don't getting Holiday or something like this) I'll hope to see some of you guys at the Coin of Evil next year.

With kind regards

Jan

Thank you. And I must say I feel exactly the same way about that game. It was the funniest and also a really sweaty game, literally. And it was also relaxed. I hope you find the time and also that you get some time off from work to come here to sweden to play with us.

PS. It was really nice that Eva gtook alot of pictures. I will post mine later, but they aren't nearly as covering as hers.

Well do you realize in what bad situation we are? We have to play this guy every week and now that he's home from the OETC his self-consciousness is quite boosted after killing Butcher twice.  ;D

If you could over in the spring it would be awesome! Feel free to post info here if you run an open tournament in Switzerland. I'm always looking for good excuses to go on weekend trips to places I've never been. Need to give Botund another chance to stomp Barnabas into ground :)

Hello you people from the north.

I was in the team with Kwainchen playing the Protectorate (Harby + ESeverius)

I am seriously considering to come to the tournament!

How do you guys want to do it with the foreign participants? Is there any chance to couch-surf? Or will I need a hotel?

And: Could the Cygnar player who played against me (ECayne) please contact me if he reads this? Best would be PM or via skype (skype user would be 'Skerolf')

thanks in advance!

I have a couch that's up for for free. I also have access to a dirt cheap (~10 euro/night) guest apartment in my building with two bed sofas, small kitchen, showers and sauna. Lots of floor space too if that's an option. Just let me know when you've decided and I'll see if it hasn't been booked yet  :)

This sounds very nice. Would you be so kind to ask if it is possible to rent this apartment?  Just to keep the costs in a "normal" range. On the other hand, is there some Hotel near the Tournament area?
So I have to calculate my costs bevor I'll try to get my work off for this =)

We play at skytteholmsskolan, really near skytteholmsparken, which you can see on the map.

If some other swedish people know good Hotels and hostels you could be kind and put the here.

I also know that some of our german friends liked this place:
http://www.svenskaturistforeningen.se/sv/upptack/Omraden/Stockholm/Vandrarhem/chapman/

Which is more closer to the drinking venue. And kind of a close walk to the Subway which leads to the gaming venue.

It would be awesome if Poland came and represented itself here in Stockholm! I hope that you may find something you like in some of the links i put up or if you find some nice swede to let you stay somewhere. Just send me an E-mail if you want me to write your name up on the players list!

Well I technically could Paste you onto the list Whithout you sending me an email. But I am buggering everyone else with it so I don't think I will make you an exception. Eventhough I told you once already that you should send an Email.

I'm just abit afraid the others will search me up and beat me down If I let you off the hook and not the others. ;)

I can't find my name on the list and I like to sign up. Also, I might be able to hook up a bunch of people with some kind of sleeping arrangements. There are a few couches to crash on and a crazy amount of floor space for those who bring their own gear. Free of charge. I'll get back as soon as I know for sure.

So, I just signed up but I have a couple of questions.
First, will there be reinforcements needed?
Second, you've written "character restrictions", do you mean just the normal restrictions of SR2012 or do you mean the army list variant actually named "characters restricted"?
(Different versions of the same character model/unit cannot be included in more than one of a player’s lists. (Example: A player cannot include Eiryss, Angel of Retribution in one list
and Eiryss, Mage hunter of Ios in another.))

It is Character Restricted from Steamroller 2012 1.3
Example: A player cannot include Alexia, Mistress of the Witchfire in one list
and Alexia Ciannor & the Risen in another.

The most interesting thing is that only 37/64 players signed up are from Sweden (I just looked over the list real quick). That's amazing, so many guys wanting to come from abroad to play!

As usual people will probably drop out as the date of the event is closing in etc, especially from close to Stockholm as we don't have to travel and so on.

Keep a watch on the thread. Later we will update the posts and give you the information on how to sign up. Just keep a look out for that information.

Too bad you didn't see this Which came 17 min after your post.

So when will people from the waiting cue know that they got a space? To get a cheap flight from germany, you have to book about two month in advance...

  Anyway, I've already sent an email to the listed address a while back, but did not get a response.  Am I supposed to do anything else?

  Hopefully we can see each other soon.

Heya,

Mailing is the right way to go about it. You will be put in as a queued player since the tournament is full at the moment (but there WILL be drop outs for sure). Sydow (the guy above your post) is the guy responsible for everything so in case you get no feedback you can always ask him directly.

Cheers and I hope you will make it to Stockholm :)

You probably have a mailing list since you took the applications by mail so I think a good advice is to mail out the payent info and the deadline for payment beacause I think a lot of the people who are attending the tournament is not chaecking this forum so often.

+1 to a deadline early enough that reserves could make travel arrangements. At least a month in advance would be nice.

However its up to the organizers to choose. You may set an early date to get in the money to spend on prizes and other costs.

In fact around here all events require you to pay the fee to be enlisted to the tournament. Or else people may just sign up on the tournament and loses nothing if they later decide not to go. Have led to some considerable last minute drop-out and considerable trouble for different organizers all over sweden.

As for foreigners thats another matter of course.

It takes 9 min From Solna Centrum to T-centralen
and it takes 6 min or less from the aula were we palay to Solna centrum
And should take around 10 min to find and get to the train from T-centralen.

If I were you I would look for another train not to get stressed out.
And Hopefully we will be quick at giving out prizes but there is a risk you might have to go before that.

As mentioned above, we (the entirety of meta south, really) might be unable to get home on Sunday if the event runs late. The 18.21 train is the very last one of the day.

Would it be absolutely impossible to change the schedule a bit? We only play until 17.00 on Saturday, which seems unnecessarily early? 19.00 would still allow for a full evening of food, drink and war stories.

The "problem" now is that when we have more than 64 players we might need seven rounds to have one undefeated player. So I think we'll do four rounds on Saturday and then 2 or 3 on Sunday depending on if we need it. We could also start an hour earlier on sunday (so at 9 AM) if that helps to make sure you get to the train in time?

We are not using Reinforcements (nor are we using Specialists). The schedule will be tight enough even without them.

Nice! Someone more who brings the "player wife" with him... Mine usually follows aswell and do some sightseeing. But she is going to be at the tournament and help out so she can't show your wife around town.

If your wife is going to come to the "drinking venue" I need to have her name. Because we are going to have it shut off from the public so we can sell alcohol there. And then we need to put the people on the lists so the state don't come and points fingers.

^^ Hopefully there are some other poeple who brings friends and such. Might be a good idea to ask on Page5 aswell: http://page5.de/viewtopic.php?f=45&t=16861

I can't really promise that. There are alot of parking spaces outside but most of them are hired by teachers who work at the school. And they won't be there that day. But I still think it will be enough to get a ticket for if the ticket lady finds you. And you could just park it outside the venue were nobody will be except the Finnish van with the suff.

In my humble opinion, the swedes that haven't paid their fee before the set date, should be moved directly to reserves. This isn't children we're dealing with after all.

Though, I suspect everyone will get a place since there been some drop-outs. Would just be nice with confirmation for those that are affected.

So a rules question:

The cyclops shamans primal magic is not Erratad (yet) but there is an infernal saying that it will be (the legion bloodseer(?) has the same rule with "non character animus" added to the wording). So which wording will be used in swinnish? Has some impact on my list building so would be nice to know...

Basically will my shaman be able to use Fatewalker and/or Bump?

That's an excellent question. Let's play it like it is played in the future (ie after the errata) so no casting of character beast's animi.

I still have a bunch of stuff I want to play unpainted.
Will I be able to get it done? I don't know. These damn Fennblades have been a nightmare to paint.

So...do I suck it up, go with the already-finished army and bring Searforge?
or do I try to crack on and get the Trolls painted and try to play an army I've not used in several years, with Warlocks and lists I've never used?
(I'm so glad that I don't go into these things expecting to be competitive).

So about the deathclock, what is the death clock time used? (42 points not being a standard size...) And will the deployment be included in the deathclock?

Will there be an overall game timer or is it only deathclock?


Titel: SV: The Great Swinnish Warmachine and Hordes Tournament 13-14/4 2013
Skrivet av: TheEmu skrivet 27 Mars 2013 kl. 19:37:25
We will use the new Deathclock, so according to SR2013. This means that the deployment is clocked and only TOs (=me and Alfred) can stop the clock. As per the new Deathclock, there is an overall timer and if it runs out, both players lose the game, though this is not a problem as long as you play by the rules and don't stop the clock by yourself.

As you said, there's no official time limit for 42 points, but we'll use 53 minutes per player. This is pretty much according to SR, plus a couple of minutes.

Please everyone, remember that everyone should send the army lists they are using in the event to our email addres before this friday. Also note that Characters Restricted really means Characters Restricted, ie. the variant of SR. So you cannot have pEiryss in one list and eEiryss in the other.

All the tier lists are naturally allowed, but if you want to use a tier list, clearly indicate that you're using one (and where is it from: NQ/Faction book/whatever). Also when sending in your lists, add all the bonuses from tiers next to the lists. If this is not done properly, you won't be benefitting from tier bonuses. This is for that it's perfectly clear to everyone if you're using tier list and what benefits you gain from it.

TheEdit: Forwardkommander.com is a great way to send your lists to us. For example, your email might look something like this:

But Midas has 5 WB points, two Razorboars is not enough! :( Maybe we can live with Midas, Gunboar and 21 min units of Grinders? Min vs max units is actually something I've been thinking about: Max units would give better skill for lazers and better targets for Battle Lust, but min units would give more lazers.

I was actually wondering about pairing that Grinder list with Maelok armor spam. Though I've heard there's this guy in Sweden playing with Maelok quite well, maybe there could be some synergy there, hmm hmmm...

What do you mean "test time is running out"? Doesn't everyone put togehter a list with
models that you have no idea how they work or what their stats are and then pack it
in a bag and wait until tournament day to open up that bag???

Man, I knew I was doing something wrong!!!   8)

No wonder i keep loosing...

This time I actually "cheated" a little. I've played 2 games with one of my lists already.
And thats a record for me when it comes to prepearing for a tournament.

Yes they will, as long as we can get through them in time.

I wrote some terrain rules down for the tournament, check it out here:

http://ordoaboensis.net/liitteet/OA_terrainrules.pdf (http://ordoaboensis.net/liitteet/OA_terrainrules.pdf)

This is so that everyone can focus more on the playing, and not worrying about how the terrain should be played. Of course, if both players agree on that something is played differently, go for it.

Also, if you find something odd about the terrain rules, or you find a terrain piece I didn't cover here, feel free to let me know (during or after the event). This is the first time I've written this down, it may well be that I forgot something.

Alfred has mainly been taking care of this, but if I'm not mistaken, it's a restaurant, booked for us privately. So, don't bring your own alcohol but buy it there. There should also be food served there.

I've made a small, but important change to the terrain rules: A model must now be completely on top of a hill to gain bonuses. This is done to prevent the need to balance models partially on top of hills with dice (or whatever) which can lead to damaged models and frustration.

PS:  While I sincerely respect the ruling the TO made about hills here and do not dispute it at all, I am not sure I would call "toeing in" a dirty trick.  It is just how the rules work.  The same could be said for toeing into a zone to hold it.  That's perfectly legal as well.

What he said. And I would like to add that even if they do not bring a bonus, hills will still have edges and it will still be neccessary to support models with dice, e.g. when attacking other models that found enough room for their whole base on a hill. In fact hills only got smaller, shooting army got a little advantage and we play with different rules as used to (at least for me). But still:

I appologise for the "dirty" part. It from personal experience, I feel dirty claiming DEF bonus for beeing 1" high when the model is 1mm elevated, but thats just me.

Regarding the rules, it is up to the players to decide about in the pre-game preperations. There is a gap in the rules between 1" elevation needed to get the DEF buff and the text about hills in the terrain section. Check the rules forum, threads on the subject always end with "player agreement" as soulution.

Sorry for going OT.

Friday evening is game night for us living in Stockholm so you're more than welcome to drop by Norbert! The store where we play is really centrally located right by Odenplan underground station, street address Hagagatan 6 (I think it's 6, could be 8 as well but it's a store named arcane, kinda hard to miss). But as it's game night we usually just grab some sort of fast food so if you're looking for a more full on dinner it might be better to do something else :)

Check that your name is on the list if you have sent your list (and check that the paid tick is also correct). If your name is on the list, but you're not coming, let me know also. (PM me for example).

Also, if you find a typing error in your name, let me know. This is where we'll get your names what we'll use in the pairings software.

Hm I can't find Eva Treml on the list. One her Lists wasn't correct (you told her today, which brought some unexpected problems, but we managed to handle this). 

Looking forward to see all of you and having a great Tournament.

I've also researched more about the issue if a model must be completely on a hill or not to gain bonuses and found out that there actually is a way supported by PP, which is that "toeing in" is perfectly legal. I've made the change to the terrain rules pack and this is the way we'll play it in the event.

Sorry for the confusion and going back and forth with this, but yes, this is the final word on the issue.

Skrivet av: John skrivet 11 April 2013 kl. 19:59:32
It is legal, as is the other interpretation. That is why is must be decided during pre-game preperations normally. I think you handle it perfectly by stetting the standard for the tournament as a whole as it could have been different with different players otherwise.

(However, I lament that you elected to change to toe-in as I find it ridiculus.)

Ahh, forgot about earlier post, but at least find your lists and go through them that they are as you meant. Then it's good to start going through other lists and try to spot errors. I looked through all of them and they should be fine, but I'm only human and it's easy to make a mistake when going through 150-ish lists...

  Why is it ridculous to toe into a hill, but it is not ridculous to toe into a woods, or toe into a zone?

  This is a game ultimately of abstracts.  We don't have true LOS for a reason.  Toe'ing in is just another game mechanic.

  If nothing else, the suggested size and shape of terrain pieces in SR2013 show you why toeing in is important to the game.  If you didn't have toe in, then you effectively shrink down terrain pieces by a significant amount and thereby increase huge amounts of open space on the game board which detracts from value of many abilities within the game.

  If instead you increase all the terrain pieces to sizes comparable to toe in while requiring whole bases to fit on the terrain piece, you now have overcrowded the board with terrain making it unacceptably negative to many different factions in the game.

  Toeing in is simply an abstraction, one among many abstractions that Warmachine makes to make it the streamlined and fast-paced game it is.  Could this attitude towards terrain come from more WYSIWYG games like Warhammer?  I'd be very interested in discussing this further over some beers on-site!

Some random stuff from the army lists (because I'm obsessed with random numbers):
6 Cygnar Players, 6 eHaley, 6 Stormwalls. Seems like they're trying to make a pact with the Infernals.
9 Khador Players, 14 Iron Flesh caster (assuming I didn't get their caster mixed up, which is likely I did).
34 Warmachine Players, 34 Hordes Players.
12 Colossals, 2 Gargantuans.
11 Legion Players, 22 Angelii, 14 Shredders
Not a single Basilisk Drake, to you Skorne players I say, have fun dealing with the 19 Eiryss and 16 Gorman.

Slussen is a station for the subway, buses, and also another local train line named Saltsjöbanan, thus named because it goes out to the fancy area Saltsjöbaden. The train stops down by the buses which is where you'll end up when you're walking to Slussen, and down there there is a place which opens early where you can buy tickets!

My guess is that it'll probably be least painful just to order two big taxis from the harbor. Taxi is a little* expensive in sweden but compared to walking 15 minutes  and then possibly maybe eventually go on a subway riding adventure might even out the cost.

A little question to those who live a little more central than me (ie almost everyone) :D

From T-centralen...

Blue line (11) towards Akalla, get off at Solna centrum (south entrance, towards the busses).

It looks like a "short" walk from there to Ankdamnnsgatan 14-16. About 5-10 minutes.

Is this the simplest way to go? Or are there easier?

It helps printing a map over the area to bring for the walk :)

The only sad part was that quite alot of people dropped out day two.
Some had good reason, some not so good. This skewed the SoS a little.

I would like to suggest that players that commit and stay for all matches
automatically place ABOVE those who abort (whatever the reason).
The "dropouts" get their own internal result at the bottom.

By the way, what is:

"Large event scoring variant"?

Large Event Scoring – In larger events, players dropping out of the tournament adversely affect their opponents’strength of schedule. If there is no clear winner at the end of an event using large event scoring, count the tournament points scored divided by the number of games played by each opponent of the tied players. For an opponent who did not score any tournament points, use a value equal to 1 divided by the total number of rounds in the event.
For example, after four rounds Jason and Doug are tied for second place. To break the tie, the EO adds up the tournament points and divides by the number of games played by Jason’s opponentsduring the previous four rounds. The EO does the same for Doug’s opponents and compares the total to break the tie.
The player whose opponents have the highest total score has the best strength of schedule score and earns the higher rank. If strength of schedule is the same for both players, go to Control Points and then Army Points as normal.

15 Minutes to say hi, choose lists and prepare for deployment:
This was very good. This kept the feeling between games somewhat relaxed and allowed all ~60 players to move their stuff in the quite crowded play-space without too many accidents! :)

No scenario markers
Making scenario marker kits for 30 tables is a lot of work, but it adds a degree of smoothness to the games when you don't have to improvise some sort of solution for each and every scenario.

No signs around the school
The information for the tournament only says an address. Informing us that it was a school and which building and entrance would really have helped. Also some directions for parking for next year would be good, if the tournament is in the same place. There was parking on the street just outside but it required you to bring 80kr in coins each day...

Schedule change
The schedule was changed "last minute" to be four games on saturday instead of three. From what I've heard this was changed here (on kolgruvan) but not on the other forum (gotapair). This caused confusion, small amounts of chaos and in my case a missed game in the tournament : /

The centre tables
These were horrible. I suspect that this was not by choice, I'm guessing you ran out of square tables. It was very hard to play on the centre tables that had no extra table edge to put stuff on and didn't have support in the corners of the board. If you were unlucky or had a small lapse in concentration I think you could "split" the playing table in half by leaning on the corners of the board...

No clocks
I think everyone has a smartphone nowadays so this is not a huge problem, but if there are no clocks available on the event this should be noted in the information so that people can prepare and bring their own timers. :)

Terrain
Some of the tables had really strange terrain pieces, like 2cm long linear obstacles. This is not necessarily a bad thing, just unusual for me. There was a document with terrain rules, which I think is a good thing, and it contained some new, made-up terrain (fields), which I think is a bad thing.

Pairings for the first round
I got to play against my practice buddy from my club in the first round. We asked to switch but we were told it was not possible. It is not hard to make sure that people from the same club/country/something else don't have to play each other in the first game. I would be really annoyed if I came with my friends to a tournament in another country and we had to play against each other in the first round.

Communication
The communication with the players in regards to listbuilding, rules queries and just general responsiveness has been horrible. Sorry to say it, but there really is no "sugarcoating" it. No notification of if your list has been recieved, no answers for questions about list changes, etc etc. Please, this has to improve for next year.

Toilet paper
On the first day the toilet paper ran out immediately (60 people poop a lot). This was bad. On the second day the toilets were restocked with luxury toilet paper. This was excellent! :D

Revealing of pairings
The first round pairing reveal was entertaining but hard to read. You solved this problem very nicely for all the other rounds however!

Results
All 60 people should go write their results on one single piece of paper? I have never seen this method before and it seems very inefficient to me. What happens if the paper is lost? XD

Individual score cards
Steamroller record sheets make it a lot simpler to keep track of important things such as # of times each list is played. I don't know how this was checked in this tournament, but I'm guessing that it simply wasn't.

Sunday morning
If the venue is going to be closed until ~40 minutes before the start of the first game, please inform players of this. The morning weather was sucky.

Painting competition
We got to vote for all the armies, which was good. We had to find them ourselves among 30 tables, which was bad.

Afterparty
 There was a venue booked for the afterparty, which I think is a great idea. It was loud and expensive, which I think sounds bad (I was not there).

Microphones
The organisers had a microphone to use while presenting. This was good. Only 50% of the organisers talked into the microphone. This was... less good. Please, talk loudly and hold the microphone pointing into your mouth, not up at the ceiling (yes you, Alfred :P)

Scoring
There were some erroneous calls on how scoring is done when the clock reaches 0 or when a caster is killed. A judge cannot be prepared for all rules questions, but questions about scoring you really should be prepared for.

Scenario presentations
Teemu read every scenario for us. This was more fun than useful, especially on sunday. I like fun, so I think you should keep this anyway. :D

Small space
The event had 33 tables and they were quite close together. There were 84 (?) positions available originally, I wonder where you would have put the extra 10 tables. :D It was a little crowded in my opinion but it was ok!

Certificates
Everyone got a certificate! This was great!

First of all, I want to say that I had a really great time. For me, tournaments are all about meeting new players, and I actually got to go up against people that I hadn't met before in each round. Going 2-4 didn't exactly earn me any bragging rights, but each game was actually really interesting and exciting. Well, maybe all except one... Yes, I'm looking at you Falkman! ;) *

It was quite a learning experience running into tough match ups like Saeryn and eDoomshaper. (Big up to Christian from Norway who offered me one of the most exciting games I've played ever. Great game!)

It was really inspiring to see that many nicely painted armies. A lot of my stuff has been hastily painted days before tournaments or league play, so they basically look like crap. I feel it's time for a makeover, so I paint-stripped a couple of beasts that I have some cool ideas for. It's nice to feel inspired again!

I hope to see all of you next year again! Cheers!

* Super quick Mage Hunter Strike Force assassination! Well, we got time to talk some about Retribution lists and play another friendly game, which I really appreciated. Next time bro! :D

Hey Island! Thanks for the very detailed feedback, this definitely helps us to make the event even better next year. I hope you still had fun, even though your feedback is a bit negative-ish?

Communication between us and you, the players, is something we're definitely improving next year. This was the first time I've ran an event with someone (I've organized my fair share of events, but by myself) and this caused some confusion who announced what and where. A good option for next year might be a blog/site dedicated to the Swinnish tournament?

Hehe. :) Sorry about the quick finish, but I had to seize the opportunity when you gave it to me, as the practice game showed it would've been uphill otherwise. Was really nice to play a friendly game with you after the somewhat quick ending to the real one. :p
Next time I'll come prepared with a list that can actually handle Circle so I don't have to resort to cheap shots! :D

All of us from Västerås (5 guys) agreed on Island's feedback (we talked it through together) but we still had a great time of course! :)
The lack of communication before the tournament was really the big issue and as you can see several of Island's points actually tie into that.
As experienced tournament organizers ourselves we just thought that there was a bunch of things that could easily be improved so we wanted to give you some feedback about it to make the tournament even better. :)
(I've noticed this whole feedback thing isn't something Warmachine players seem to do, but we come from a Warhammer background and it was very common there so I guess we just still do that)

Seriously, no hard feelings! :) If you hadn't seized the opportunity you would have had to walk your army of ARM 11 forest ninjas into Kruegers lovely storm of auto-hitting POW 10:s. Then I would have been the one feeling dirty... ;)

Jag tror inte jag är ensam om att mentalt vråla "Ja!" på den förhoppningen.
