  • Hi guys,

    So its been a while since I've had some time to do blog stuff and so this comes a little bit later than i had hoped but the first in a series about the recent ART of War tournament in Bristol. Not only did we attend in good spirits, but we actually got invited to 'cover' the event by way of our channel. We would still do the Battle reports and tournament review as usual, but we would also be getting the opportunity to do a bit more to promote the event and to show how awesome going to events is for war gamers, and how fun it can be. With this in mind our vision for the tournament coverage was to provide:
    • List Reviews
    • Draw sneak peek
    • Table #1 Livestream
    • Short (& Friendly) Player Interviews
    • Bat Reps
    • Mid-Tournament (& Saturday evening shenanigans) Videos and Snippets
    We were very excited about this and want to share with you everything we managed to get up to. As you might expect, with playing in the tournament as well we had very little time to actually do the rest, but still managed a fair amount so hopefully we have done the tournament some sort of justice! Thanks once again to Callum (@'cm284') & Shane @The golden dwarf) for giving us the opportunity to help out, and for running a truly superb event. I don't think we've received any negative feedback on it and i know that everyone had a great time and especially commented on how good the atmosphere was which i think is a testament to them both! Great people, Nice prizes, and good times had by all - and 80 players, meaning it was officially the biggest singles tourney in the UK!

    Anyway, the main thing we wanted to get across to people was how easy going this tournament was - especially to new players, which we were this time last year. We attended simply as players last year and it was our first tournament. Not knowing what to expect, we turned up very anxious (and also excited), but this quickly changed and we had a great time. Big shout out to @Fthunder who was my first opponent back then, gave me a proper schooling in my first ever tournament game (20-0) but then sat with me and talked the game and some other tactics through, making me feel very welcome and not just upset that I couldn't hack it at tourneys. This I think helped me to just relax and play the rest of my games in the right spirit - and i think that was not a special case at this event, in either years. So yeah, good job in organising an event that is suitable for noobs (like we were last year), gamer's, average players and elite players alike.

    So, first up from our point of view were the list 'review' and revealing the draw to the public! Here are the videos for those of you that missed it...




    Apologies for the echo sound on this one, first time we have used skype so bare with us lol

    Plenty more to come from this event too, but we'll leave you with that for now! :thumbup:
