Nationals 2016

Postby Sixtyten » Thu Feb 11, 2016 4:44 pm

I'm guessing people have seen the news about Nationals in August in Brum by now. 13-14th. I for one welcome our new Esdevium overlords.

For those who haven't seen, we're looking to host a team tournament on the Friday in Brum a la King of Servers...

More news to follow...

Interested to see if there will still be a UKGE event (Uroboros cup/ Regional / BABW / sanctioned event/ what ever).

Almost a shame the value of our promos won't be as high now :P (As we got ours first previously)

Looking forward to a less hectic first 6 months however.

Hello runners and corpo from UK !

I am a french player of netrunner (member of the BBQ Team), me and some other french players are also insterested to participate to your Nationals.
In UK it looks like Netrunner is really alive and hughe events are organized
I already looked at hotel prices next to the Birmingham's ICC, I don't know if it is the cheaper for us.

Do you know if the Nationals will be open for strangers ?
Who should I contact to have more informations (schedule, etc) for this tournament ? because we need informations to plan the journey. (maybe it is a little too early)

Thank you in advance for your answers.

I'm sure that UK Nationals will be open to all; we had a scattering of players from abroad last year, and I can't see why it would be any different this time.

At the moment though, you have as many details as we do! All we know is the date and the location; details like the schedule, registration process and tickets will apparently be published by Esdevium (the distributor) soon. I

Thanks you for your answer.
The main problem I see for us, is to be sure that we are able to have a ticket for the tournament, because it is difficult to make reservation in advance without it ;)

In how many time were sold all the tickets last year ?

There were 121 tickets at first last year, which sold in about four and a half hours.

Some more went on sale later on; they went relatively quickly, but in the end everyone who wanted a ticket got one as far as I'm aware.

They did say that was due to venue limitations last year didn't they? I believe they said once they moved the venue there would be no problem this year!

We'll post more details in the UK Facebook group and on here. Working out venue details. Expecting 150+ for the Friday based on the games expo regional ticket sales.

It will be a team event of 3 or 4 runners.

As I understand it, the reason it is being moved from the expo is to remove the limit on attendees, so hopefully there will be more than 120 tickets!

Also not everyone who wanted to get a ticket last year got one :(
See you later, Space Cowboy.
