Congrats to the winners and I want to thank Adepticon and our Sponsors for all the support. Evolution Games, Spartan Games, Ironheart Artisans, Adepticon and Firebase Delta all threw in to make the tournament a great success. We will be back again next year bigger and better. We learned quite a bit in this inaugural year and the new knowledge will be put to good use.
It was nice meeting all the players interested in the games while running demos the days before the tournament. Sadly due to a family emergency we had to cut our trip short and leave much sooner than anticipated on Sunday. We also got a couple community celebrities int the hobby. I am looking forward to Carl of the Independent Characters Podcast talking about his newly Purchased Sorylian fleet. It was also fantastic kicking back a few drinks with Jon aka "Commissar Random" of the Overlords Podcast. Sadly I did not have a chance to give Teri Litorco an intro to Planetfall. I promise I will make it up to you ma'am!
It was very nice getting to meet Phil, Robert and Bryan from Firebase Delta. All three played in the
tournament. It was also great meeting Nathan and Lange of The Jaded Gamercast. They both played as well and were stand up guys. I think they were actually taller than me too. I didn't expect that. They did talk a little smack in the weeks leading up to the tournament when they were on Firebase Delta Podcast and Lange had stated he would not loose his Dreadnought and Clean house with his Omnidyne, Lange did loose loose his Dreadnought once. The Foundry finally fell and was a very close contender for top painted. Team Alberta did place in the top 3 as well, Thanks to John Wongs Ryushi, so they have a pretty strong game and what sounds like a great community up north.
We are looking forward to next year and bringing you a bigger and better event. We are also looking to expand to a second event. Also stay tuned as we are going to be doing a big event this fall. Its in its infancy so stay tuned. I can't reveal any details as of yet. That is all for now. Once I sort through all the pictures we will do a big picture post later this week. Dreadbeard will also have some tips for players about how to survive a long tournament day over at The WayGate for those thinking about attending next year.
Until next time crush the Alliance and as always....
