European Tournament CoC LCG, IRV Liège. Saturday 2nd November 2013

During the 31st International Rendez-Vous (IRV) of the Objectif-Jeux association (http://www.objectif-jeux.be), the organization staff, leaded by Frédéric Taton, suggests that you take part to the European CoC Championship in Liège, as well as to side events. An international event with great prizes you would not want to miss.

Hello Darkman.

 

Great to read that once again, you'll be part of the cool bunch of CoC LCG players we have the chance and honour to host at the Euro Champ.

 

The level of competition will be high and fierce again this year.

 

Just to keep everyone informed, we have already 24 players who confirmed their participation (among them all the last euro champions (B_P, Graham, Konx) or challengers (mzi, darkman,...), and some of the french champions (Carioz, Leng,...), and we are expecting a few more (5-6 at least). So we will just experience again the biggest CoC event of the year, and the deckbuilding level will reach the stars which will be aligned...  :lol:

 

We even have the pleasure to host 5 players from Spain, which will add this nice CoC LCG community to the ones already participating from previous years: Luxemburg, Germany, Netherlands, France (Paris, Lille, Lyon,...), Italy, Japan, Belgian (Liège)

 

Of course games will be played in english and french. Cards in other languages (spanish,...) are welcome, provided we can easily recognize them.

A quick update to let you know that we have reach the number of 30 participants who confirm that they will participate.

 

Yyyeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhh! :D :D :D

 

We have now 8 spanish, 3 italians, 9 frenchs, 2 germans, 1 dutch, 6 belgians (Liège) and 1 japanese. And my little finger tells me that we can still hope to get more participants to announce in the coming weeks...

 

Come on, don't be shy, the only risk you'll take is to spend a WE full of fun and nice players!

By the way, I think I did not mention that the side event will be a Highlander format: only 1 copy of each card in a deck, other rules still apply (and FAQ 3.2 as well!).

Hi.

 

The European Championship just finished and I feel really exhausted but so happy that things have gone smoothly for each participant. Finally 30 players from 8 different nations showed up and it was a blast!

 

The 2013 Champion of Europe is Graham Hill (Japan). It is now his 4th Euro title!

 

Finalist: mzi (Belgium)

 

Semi-Finalists: Gman (Luxemburg), Ray (Italy)

 

Quarter Finalist: Azatoth (France), B_P (Belgium), Darkman (The Netherlands), Sectario (Spain)

 

What is great is that we have in the TOP 8 seven different nations represented.

 

 

Sunday, we played a more "casual" side event. We chose the Highlander format.

10 participants registered, and among them 8 spanish, 1 italian, and 1 belgian.

 

Highlander winner is Hansen (Spain)

 

Full report and pictures will follow as soon as possible.

 

Thanks again to all participants for their sportmanship.
