Worlds 2015

Postby Cerberus » Mon Nov 17, 2014 7:25 pm

This question may be a bit early, but I want to get people thinking...

Would anyone else be interested in a trip to Worlds next year?
I'm currently thinking of going regardless of a Nationals win or not, this is based on the fact that I had an AMAZING time this year. I really think it is something that you guys n gals should experience.

Costs
£500-600 for flights
$500 for a room for 2
$40 for registration
Spending money...

It is amazing, you should go...

Anyone open to the idea? I think it would be even more fun with a group of people.

I want to but I have a fear of flying....and America.

If I can offset them enough I'd go.

I saw you talking to Andy Sixtyten on twitter about it right after the event and I've been mulling it over since then. Cost is a pretty significant barrier for me but I'll see where things stand in a few months, it's certainly tempting.

Its likely a £1000 for everything (when you consider eating out etc), hence why I'm asking the question now, since saving a bit each month seems sensible.
Remember if needed you can likely make a significant portion of your costs back by selling the Worlds only promos.

I don't post much on here, but I'd been wondering about going along next year too - chalk me up as interested in theory.

I'm certainly interested, but cost is going to be a big barrier for me. Hopefully I'll be able to save enough to go and play out there.

Are the power counters the regional ones or are they different.

And this is making going more appealing, I could scrub out and still get 2 copies of a worlds promo...

I'd potentially be interested: definitely think it needs to be planned ahead for. Where were the flights from/to? I've got some virgin air miles that could be used...

Also: it'd be good to get a team together after hearing the "local meta" guys bragging about their teamwork on the latest terminal 7 podcast. Clearly i'd need some more practice/training though I definitely could have done a bit better than some people I saw on the casts.

I'm doing GenCon next year but rock star wages depending I might be tempted on two trips. Depends on work course dates and available leave for me which is the tricky part.

I'm really tempted. The length of the flight is a bit off putting - I've never flown further than eastern Europe before!

The spirit is willing but the bank account...may be weak. I would really like to go though. May be a case of seeing where I stand after I do my first year of self-employment accounts o.o
The onesie was a legitimate tactical decision.

I'd really like to go to Worlds.

I probably can't go next year as Small 2 will only be 11 months old. My wife will probably have just started work and it will be all bad timing.

When I win nationals, it'd be rude to refuse though. Right? (I'm not very likely to win Nationals)

I'm seriously considering 2016. 40K Conquest, Thrones 2 and Netrunner might be stretching myself a bit thin though.
Oh that, don't worry about that, it's my negotiating tank.

Everyone start saving now.
Sell off spare promos.
You will make it...

I'm guessing that FFG won't be paying all expenses for the nationals winners in 2015 - they only seem to do that for 1 of their games each time if I'm correct. I'm guessing X-wing next year or Conquest...

Just had "the conversation" with the gf about going. Seems like it's a go if I can save up the money - we'll probably try and turn it into a holiday with Amy joining me after the weekend finishes. Might mean I have to do odd flights depending on where we head to after worlds.

Just be aware its the start of snow season!
Also they definitely flew out the UK x wing and GOT winners.
They just didn't last year for Netrunner.

Yep - I heard some people got stuck in roseville.

It'd be cool if they flew netrunner people out again - I doubt I'll be the lucky recipient this time however!

I'm well tempted.

Have you done a write up of your experiences Cerberus? I imagine I've not been paying attention and missed it due to work shenanigans (they're making me do actual work).

The UK has got a great Netrunner scene - I think just about everyone I've played has been a decent person (as opposed to my experiences years ago doing Magic). Was it the same with the yankee-doodles?

Based on what I've seen and the article he wrote for Stimhack, Dan who won is a bit of a bell-end. Might all be online bravado but he seems like a bit more of a "Bro" than most of the people I've played with/against.

It's really hard to tell someone's personality from the online presence. Cerberus comes across as warm and cuddly on here, for instance, but he's terrifying in person.
