Worldeater Tournament!

Recommended Posts

Okay.......

Entire group of us just signed up for this event at GenCon (event did sell out). When are we gonna get the cards to build the decks needed? Is this product in stores prior to GenCon or do we buy at Gencon on Thursday, learn the game, build decks and play Saturday?

Very excited about this game!

Can anyone from FFG answer this question please?

If it's anything like the netrunner and x-wing initial GenCon tournaments of a couple years ago, it will release at GenCon, so you'll want to buy the core set (or 3) on Thursday and start learning.

Netrunner, X-Wing, and Warhammer:Invasion have all followed the "released at Gencon" pattern of buy/learn on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday morning, play on Saturday afternoon in the past. I don't know for sure, but my guess is to expect the same for 40K:Conquest.

The real question is will FFG have enough copies to prevent selling out before the people in the tournament have a chance to buy a core set (or 3).  I seem to remember Netrunner having this issue.

It would be nice if they would publicly announce whether they are reserving copies for tournament players.  With Netrunner they did not, but I hope they have learned that lesson and are making improvements.

 

Rushing in extra Netrunner boxes was of little value because they did not communicate this to players (not that there was any way to do so).

They will probably set aside boxes for the tourney like they did when they rushed in boxes after Netrunner sold out in record time.

 

I asked organized play customer support and the current plan is NOT to set aside any boxes, but if you don't get product you can refund the ticket. It may change who knows.

Could we please get confirmation from someone from FFG on how the tournament will work in regards to product? Our whole group is signed up. Can we get a box in advance or do we have to rush the FFG booth Thursday morning and pray? Knowing in advance will assist us big time. Our group is signed up for Star Wars lcg Thursday morning and rushing the booth will take some planning.

Thank you for expanding the tourney but that may complicate product more.

Thank you in advance.

Got a response and it is good:

______________________________________

Hello Stephen,

 

We have decided to reserve 64 copies of the core set for tournament players. You can expect an email to registered tournament players describing how to get your copy from the reserved group - you will need to present your event ticket. Please let me know if you have any other questions, I'm happy to help.

 

Thank you,
