  1. Was Österreich betrifft, wir haben eine beachtliche Präsenz in und um Wien sowie weitere Spieler in anderen Bundesländern und auch im Ausland, die so gut sie können zu Turnieren nach Wien kommen. Covid hat natürlich Auswirkungen und wir stehen erst am Beginn einer Normalisierung (wird dauern), aber grundsätzlich treffen sich Spieler mittwochs im Club. In alter Nomenklatur haben wir jährlich Stores (allerdings früher mehr) und ein Regional, und ein oder mehr Österreicher waren bei jeder DM und EM dabei, bisher. Einige Spieler nehmen auch regelmäßig an Vasall Turnieren teil. Unser - rein informeller - Club „Pink Squadron“ veranstaltet mindestens ein länger gehendes Turnier pro Jahr, mit zunehmend mehr eigenen Preisen. Allerdings nur vor Ort, aber bis zu 16 Teilnehmer sind für nicht offizielle Turniere und ein System wie Armada mit seinem Zeitaufwand nicht schlecht. Unsere Turniere stehen natürlich Spielern aus allen Nachbarländern offen, Italien, Schweiz, Deutschland, Ungarn hatten wir bzw. haben die Absicht dazu. Je mehr, desto besser. Unsere Spielerbasis ist, glaub ich, relativ groß im Vergleich, und über die Jahre stabil bzw. wachsend, aber Covid ist real, und der lange gesperrte und nur vorsichtig öffnende Club werden Auswirkungen haben. Der sehr schleppende offizielle Preissupport und die elendslange Warterei auf neue Releases helfen auch nicht. Welchen Impact Clone Wars haben wird, weiß ich nicht, es gibt Spieler, die sich darauf freuen, vielleicht bringt es neue, wird davon abhängen, wie unabhängig es vom bisherigen Bestand ist. In ein Wave 8 Spiel, das über 2h dauert, einzusteigen, ist natürlich nicht massentauglich. Virtuell haben wir eine Armada whats-app Gruppe, die wir von Trash reinzuhalten versuchen.
  2. I expect the contrary. „Cleaner“ squad fighting. Quicker. Whatever the method, I think they know this is a bit of a sore point. We will see soon enough.
  3. while the US president has an unprecedented record of lies, daily. but I guess they are just benign. And the US president trusts China particularly, often enough. the fact that this president lies so much WITHIN the system the US has is way more depressing than what you decry about how it is in a communist dictatorship.
  4. the position of his most stupid is hotly contested...oh Tokra how I would love to discuss this man and his current performance relating to Sars CoV-2, but I force myself to respect this Forum is a US one and about a game.
  5. on their catalogue website, they have him under „erschienen 03/20“ now, so „released“. Not yet available, but agree looks like this week. We are talking about the German version, not sure about English version availability.
  6. I was expressing unhappiness once, here, and was mildly admonished to not only complain, but actually write to FFG. I did and asked if its thinkable to move Worlds to Europe, once in a while. No reply, no acknowledging of receipt, no nothing. Having said that, I can kind of understand the argument that they want to do Worlds close to their home base. Its a „global“ game, but a US company. It would be fantastic to give more Europeans an easier chance to participate at least once, but I also enjoy following it from afar. Surely far from being the biggest concern. I only wish Euros would not be in the middle of August. Anyone has heard anything about 2020 venue and date?
  7. yes, thats pretty much it. we buy it anyway, they know that. to say that due to firings (which is a sad story in itself) nobody is left responsible or authorized, I dont buy it. There is always someone left, either on the same level, or a level above. Or another level above. but yes, those might prioritize feedback at rock bottom, or dont care. If its a case of inquiring into a chain, thats a pain in the a, everyone involved in such things knows that, but its no excuse over such a long time. I dont mind waiting one more week or two, I am well conditioned. But a black hole goes against my own job ethos, even if we talk gaming here. Not life threatening, but a big part of the lifes of involved players, still. Also Dras Id think that you cannot equal access they are responsible for with access that is determined by player factors.
  8. so February came and (almost) went, what an elusive ship the SH apparently is. Pretty sure its somewhere, though.
  9. grats aresi. too bad one of you had to bow out, though...
  10. Thx for coming to us. the guys are indeed awesome, Pink Squadron style 🙂. There will be more events!
  11. repeating myself, I know, just fantastic prices, and well done to qualified players. what interesting games we have ahead of us!
