Flames of War National Tournament

Post by Hurricane on Sat Jul 26, 2008 11:42 am

Well, I am kicking myself! I was going to try and attend the pre-qualifying run the guantlet tournament that was on Thursday but decided against it. My reasons were pretty simple. I would have had to play all day just to qualify then play all day friday and saturday to play in the national one. I just felt that was too much time to being playing in the a tournament when my family was with me on vacation. I went over there this morning to check it out and found out that only 8 people showed up for run the gauntlet and all of them got in without even playing on thursday. So, I am kinda bummed out. The tournament looked way cool. There was at least 25 tables. All the armies were painted and the boards and terrain was beautiful. I am definately going next year. Hopefully, I will be pre qualified ahead of time.

Here are some pictures.

Looks like a hellafun tournament! Some of those boards look awesome, particularly that air field one!

Next time for sure though! I think that mid-war tournament in September is a qualifier.

Thats the link I posted for you in Orlando, the Hurricon event in the last weekend of September. I think it was mid-war though it could be late-war.

Guys, we can have our own qualifying tournament!
Why drive to Orlando?
All you need is 12 or more participants to have a qualify.
We have over 12 local players, if make a concentrated effort we can do this!
Just a suggestion.

This is true. Plus I bet if you post on the FOW forum early enough and get it registered you'd get a decent sized crowd.

Only problem is you only qualify 1 out of every 6 players for nationals. That is, if people want to go lol.
