LOTR SIngles Tournament Adepticon 2013

Postby Guardian of Ecthelion » Thu Oct 25, 2012 8:08 pm

OK I have talked to some people about running a singles tournament on Saturday at Adepticon 2013. I am looking for people to commit to the event before hand. I really want to run the event, but I really want to make sure we have enough people to make it worth while. I hope you all understand what I am trying to say. The main reason I have decided to do this is for our out state travelers. For some of you who can't get there to play on Thursday.

I think we will have enough space for 10 tables and 20 players.

So please PM me or just let me know here if you are interested in playing in this tournament.

Thanks and keep me posted.

I think I'd definitely be interested and so would the buddy I travel with, but I couldn't fully commit yet.

Though, honestly, with Friday being essentially a singles tourney (albeit a fun variation on it) I'm not 100% sure that will do the trick, but more LOTR is definitely better. And honestly, not trying to be difficult. Very much appreciate the efforts and communication here and in the other thread.

First, thank you to Chris for offering to think up something for Saturday. I have gotten word that we could have some table space (maybe for about 20 players) but we have to have something planned soon so it can go live on the cart next month. Time is of the essence! I cannot run this event (or likely play in it) but if the players want the event, are willing to attend it and someone is willing to run it, then I will champion this and work before the event to make it happen. Hate to throw you guys under the bus, but basicly, this is up to all of you. :twisted:

So please post your thoughts on a 3rd day event. I don't expect you to know right now if you would play, just if this is something you "might" play in. Essentially, we don't want to add in a 3rd event and then have it cancelled due to low registration numbers. :oops: So if it's something you would probably not play in anyways let us know.

This possible 3rd event in no way changes the plans for the two events we already have planned (March to Mount Doom and Team Tournament). None of the existing (and past) staff could commit to three events thus the changes you see. But we are all in this together so if there is demand and staff to take the lead then we're behind you.

Just so you know Jamie, I plan on running it. Josh can help with a ringer if we need it. Not sure if we will need anyone else to help run the tournament. We just need the players.

Great! I know you were thinking of running it but I didn't want to put you on the spot if it wasn't going to work for you.

Is this going to be 600 points? (barring any unforseen rule changes)

I need to figure out if my family commitment on Saturday will hold up or fall through before I can sign up.
