More like a bunch of white guys from minnesotar

wish they posted their hometowns it'd be fascinating to see the demographic of entrants too. Seems like it's not something people travel for.

Did anyone go?

They used to do them at GenCon and seemed like it brought in a large variety of folks... but yeah, I know a bunch of locals who went.

Over three days of enthusiastic participation and stiff competition, we enjoyed top-level games, including several World Championship Finals that featured the best players from both Europe and North America.


Game of Thrones:
Quote:
The reigning North American Champion, five former World Champions, and two European National Champions all fought to defend their bids for the Iron Throne from multiple Regional Champions and other hopeful players.


Call of Cthulu:
Quote:
A field consisting of players from North America, France, Italy, and Tokyo fought to retain their sanity as they uncovered the terrible truths of the Ancient Ones’ influence over all reality.


Dust Tactics:
Quote:
The 2012 Dust Tactics World Championship was a true contest of champions, pitting the French and German National Champions against one another, as well as a number of American contenders


Warhammer Invasion:
Quote:
The top players from Europe and North America fought for dominion over the Old World in the 2012 Warhammer: Invasion The Card Game World Championship Tournament. After four hard-fought preliminary rounds, four players earned their way to elimination play, two each from Europe and North America.



No doubt the locals would be a majority of the "less serious" players but there were entrants from around the world.

You seem to spend a lot of effort just to be 'unimpressed' with stuff.

Remember if you find a post offensive, trollish, or otherwise improper, there is a wonderful red X button to click.

The move from a continent, to countries, to a city amuses me. That is all.

The move from having Worlds at Gencon to having it at their company HQ in Minnesota probably did reduce the number and range of players.

Personally, I played in the Gencon Call of Cthulhul tournament this year and last year and greatly enjoyed it (and came in 2nd place this year too) - but I can't justify traveling for such a small event. Gencon is four days of wall-to-wall gaming. This is maybe one or two events, roughly the equivalent of about 2/3 of a single Gencon day.

Future years I'm afraid will be the same for me. Given a choice, I would always rather take my trip to the bigger event and I'm sure I'm not the only one. I can only imagine how hard it must be to justify the trip if you're flying in from another continent.

Granted, I'd have been a lot more tempted to go if I'd come in 1st rather than 2nd at Gencon though...

Is that your way of saying we need a "Gaming and non-whites" subforum?
