I was very excited to participate in this event. I was entering with my Chaos Daemonettes deck.

Allow me to briefly describe some of the policies of this event:

- This is 50 cards per deck, each deck consist of one faction only.
(meaning no combo- mixing dwarf and High Elves for example).
Also each deck of 50 must have 21 unit cards total, 2 quest cards, 12 tactic cards, 12 support cards, 3 legend cards. We had to submit the list earlier.

- each deck must have 3 copies of each card and 2 copies of Quest card belonging to the same faction it represents).

- There is a 12 turn maximum time limit. you can finish the match earlier by burning 2 of the opponent zone but if not, 12th turn for each player is the end. (so yes there could be tie games or one player win by burning one zone only).

- The event also counts every single damage inflicted to the capital.
as a tiebreaker. so if I had 3 development on my Quest zone, at the end of the game if the opponent inflicted 8 damage + 3 additional damages in to my Quest zone, they would have burnt my Quest zone and total damage score would be 11.

Event format:
The group I was drawn was one of the 14 groups, each group consist of 6 teams (factions) and the six teams in each group would play others in the same group (total 5 games). 1st place would advance and the best second place finisher among the 14 groups would advance to the final 15 later.


The group I was in consist of five other teams.
1. Empire ostlands
some of the cards were units of Warrior Priests, Ostland Bowmen, Stirland Deathjacks, Werner Ludenhof, Ludwig Schwarzheim, support cards City Gates, Blessed Hammer, Tactic card Will of the Electors..
2. High Elves Guardians
some of the cards were units Nagarythe Warrior, Shadow Warrior, High Elf Spearmen, Tiranoc Chariot, Valorous Mage, Tactic cards Guarding Boon, Magic Ward, Support cards Phoenix Ward, Elven Warship..
3. Dwarves of Moria
some of the cards were units Dwarf Ranger, Iron Defenders, Durgnar the Bold, Standard Bearer, support cards Karak Great Cannon, Gyrocopter, Und Dokbar, Tactic cards Open the Armoury, Hewn from the Mountain, Striking the Grudge..
4.Dark Elves Raptors
Some of the cards were units Cold One Knight, Cold One Riders, Spawn of Kintearer, Cold One Chariot, Hag Graef Knights, Support cards Har Ganeth, Tactic card Jealous Eyes, Quest card Night Raids..
5.Orcs Raiders
some of the cards Red`ead Boyz,Reckless Boyz, Big Boss, Followers of Mork, Boar Boyz, Makka Greenfist, Support cards Totem of Gork, Rock Lobber, Tactic card Smah-Go-Boom..
6. Chaos Daemonettes
some of the my unit cards Winged Fury, Dark Zealot, War Hounds, Daemon Summoner, Alluring Daemonettes, Kepper of Secrets, Support cards Daemonic Offering, Den of Iniquity, Tactic cards Seduced by Darkness, Seductive Delusion...


I was just happy to participate and I did not care what place I would finish. I also liked the Dark Elves Raptors theme. It would have been very neat to watch them go against Lizardmen deck. (Raptors vs Lizards)


first game:

my Chaos Daemonettes vs Empire Ostland. I lost 0-2
Although the game went 12 turns, he was having fun inflicting damage in to my capital. I just could not get my units into play in timely manner.
the other two games, Orcs Raiders defeated High Elves guardians 2-0 after 10 turns and Dark Elves Raptors beat on the Dwarves 2-0 after 11 turn.

second game:

Dwarves of Moria beat me 2-0 the game lasted 8 turns only. I was becoming depressed because the two games I am not even coming close to apply pressure. Other games Orcs Raiders easily brushed off the Dark Elves 2-0 after 1o turns and Empire Ostlands won their match against High Elves Guardians 2-0 after 12 turns.

third game:

Well, I managed to take the game to 11 turn before losing to the Dark Elves Raptors 0-2. Orcs Raiders and Empire Ostland played 1-1 after 12 turns,
What a match this was. Orcs jumped out early as usual but the empire player managed to slow down the rush and suddenly he turned things around and for the first time the Orcs were on the defending position. On the 12th and last turn the Empire was ready to inflict the final damage causing second zone to burn and Orc player knew the game is over after the empire player begins the Battlefield phase so the orc player played the Tactic card
Foot of Gork ! which destroys one empire Unit with printed cost of 2 or less. That canceled out the intent to apply damage and the game ended 1-1. The other match High Elves Guardians defeated Dwarves of Moria 2-0

Fourth game:

I went up against High Elves and again I lost badly. Took the game to 11 turn but lost 0-2. Other games saw another tight game Dark Elves defeated Empire Ostland 1-0 after 12 turns. The Orc player had no problem smashing the Dwarves 2-0 only after 8 turns.

Fifth game:
my final game and I was up against the best deck in the group. The Orcs Raiders. I heard the guys laugh and wished me good luck and they were bidding on which turn the game would end. They agreed the game should not last more then 3 turns. I think the orc player felt sorry for me because although he won 2-0 he took the game to 10 turns before burning my second zone. He took it easy and there was no sign of his Rush deck of orcs coming down as we had seen previously. Any ways, I lost again.
Other games saw Empire Ostland defeated stubborn Dwarves 1-0 after 12 turns and the battle of the Elves saw Dark Elves beating High Elves 1-0 after 12 turns.

Final standings saw:
1st- Orcs Raiders won 4 games, Tie 1 game, no losses. They inflicted 129 damages in opponent capital in 5 games while their capital received 18 damage in 5 games. Also it is important to document for you that during five games only one time Orc zone was burnt. (Battlefield zone against Empire).
2nd- Dark Elves Raptors won 4 games, lost once (to the orcs), They inflicted 94 damages in 5 games while receiving 49 damage.
3rd- Empire Ostland won 3 games, tie one game ( tied the orcs), lost 1 game to the Dark Elves. They inflicted 91 damages in 5 games and received 49 damages.
4th- High Elves Guardians, won 2 games, lost 2 games. Damaged opponent capitals 49 times while received damage 57 times in five games.
5th place went to the Dwarves. won once and lost 4 games. They managed to inflict damage to the opponent 43 times while receiving 91 damages in five games.
6th-Last place was my Chaos Daemonettes
Lost all five games. managed only to inflict 9 damages to the opponent capital in five games but received 138 damages.


Here is another stat.
Subtracting Damages received from Damages inflicted, here is the final +/-:
1. Orcs Raiders +111 after five games.
2. Dark Elves Raptors +45 after five games.
3. Empire ostland +42 after five games.
4. High Elves Guardians -8 after five games.
5. Dwarves of Moria -49 after five games.
6. Chaos Daemonettes -131 after five games.

So it looked like the orcs were in the league of their own. Dark Elves took second place but I think Empire deserved to win that match against the orcs and also they were unlucky against the Dark elves. But that is all for now.

If there is any interest, I will continue provide some reports from other groups by contacting Sonja.


Thanks for reading this, sorry for my bad grammar, apologies for LONG report.

Diana

I am still trying to get the details of the 1st round games from the other groups and stats but this is the final round results. I will continue and post updates of details of second round and final round.

The final round consisted 15 teams divided in 3 groups of 5. The 14 group winners and the best 2nd place finish team.

The quarter finals saw top 2 teams from each group and the best two 2nd place finishers:

Empire Kislev against Orcs Raiders 2-0
High Elves Saregons against Chaos Mordheims 2-1
Lizardmen Lustrians against Orcs of lost legion 2-1
Dark Elves Sabetons against Empire Oregans 1-0

All four games went to 12 turns.

Semi finals:
Empire Kislev against Dark Elves Sabetons 2-1
High Elves Saregons against Lizardmen Lustrians 1-2

Both games went to 11 turns.


3rd place:
High Elves Saregons against Dark Elves Sabetons 1-2
after ten turn.

Finals:
Empire Kislev against Lizardmen Lustrians 2-1
after 11 turn.



Some notes:

- There were un official decks of Bretonnia (2 teams), Chaos Dwarves (1 team)and Amazons (2 teams) Halflings (1 team) and the card Arts were printed black and white and although these teams participated in first round and played 5 games each, their results was not considered towards group rankings.
(i hope i can get some photos from her to post here subject to advance permission from GW because the arts were from the army books and GW magazines involving those factions).
-Chaos Dwarves had the best success played 5 games, won 3,Tie 1 and lost 1.

- There was one team which made it to the quarterfinals and had 3 cards from the fan expansion forever war.
Dark Elves Sabetons had tactic card Death night.

- The Empire winner was Mr. Tedus Trzaskalski from Poland.
(apologies if the spelling is not correct).

- The next event will consist of combo decks and some multi player Cataclysm being held in Budapest August 19-28.

- Everyone had good time and the organizers/judges did very well.


Thanks

Diana
