Worlds 2016

Postby Cerberus » Sun Nov 22, 2015 10:09 pm

I know this is a bit early, but I want to get people thinking... Worlds 2016, you should come!

Both years have been amazing, but this year with a group of people was really really good. I'd like even more people to come next year!
I know its expensive and it requires time off work etc but it is worth it, so I'd suggest saving now, just makes it easier.

Costs
£450-550 for flights
£220 (each) for a room for 2
$50 for registration
Taxi money to and from the airport (cost depends on size of group)
Spending money...

It is amazing, you should go...

If anyone has any questions please shout.

i would love too, but im getting married in 2017 and we are saving up.

On the other hand if i went i certainly wouldn't have to worry about the cost of getting married because id either be dead or single haha

So, Dave. Could you summarise a bit about how the trip went?

I guess you organised to travel as part of a group, meeting at Heathrow or something? Was the airport convenient for the hotel/venue? How was the venue? What was your schedule for the days you were there? There were other tournaments I guess, but non FFG activities too? How was the food/other amenities?

Sorry for all the questions, but I'm just wondering if there are any caveats/warnings/advice you would give from your experience of the event.

I'd also be interested to hear how the event was for people who were, how shall I put this, less "winning endowed" than people who made the cut. How they enjoyed it etc.

I'm guessing we haven't had any dates for next year right? :P My only concern at the moment is trying to get the time off work - saving money is it's own seperate issue of course but I'll be saving money for other things as well. Seeing the NRUK facebook updates really got me psyched to play competitively again, so I'd like to try and find the opportunity to attend worlds at least once.

I wanted to echo what the others have said and also add that the trip was one I'll never forget and I made some real friends from people I barely know before.

In terms of cost it's worth factoring selling the promos you acquire for participating.

I have personally sold £331.95 worth of worlds promos, after fees with another £271ish left to sell.

This adds up to £600, these are all prizes for just turning up. Of course every year the promos are different and there are no guarantees but I think you can be safe in assuming a significant cost of the trip can be recouped.

I'm extremely tempted to come to Worlds 2016, especially given how much people enjoyed it this year. All the more reason to win Nationals next year!
