Update 23/09/14, Post von Dave Salisbury auf Facebook.
Everything anyone wants to know about the 2014 European HeroClix Championship at Essen, brought you in association with WizKids Games and Esdevium Games.
Where and when is this being held?
It's running October 17th and 18th at the Atlantic Congress Hotel, Norbertstr. 2a, 45131 Essen, Essen, DE literally over the road from the Messe Spieltage itself. Which is great news, as you don't actually have to buy a ticket into Spiel to play or to buy convention exclusives. But hey - you're at Essen, so you should definitely also find time to go to Spiel as well (when you aren't playing Clix!)
Onsite registration and Convention exclusive sales will begin at 11am on the Friday. If you pre-register on the WizKids Event System, you'll need to confirm your presence at the event by 11.30am on Friday for the Constructed and 3.30pm for the Sealed; at this point we'll be offering any spare player places to non-preregistered players at the venue.
How are the events working?
On Friday October 17th we're running two qualifiers.
The first qualifier will be 300 point Modern Constructed at 12pm, with an entry fee of 10 Euros. You can preregister for the event here: http://www.wizkidseventsystem.com/event.php?EVENT_ID=86563 - spaces are already filling up quite quickly. I can pretty safely say there will be a minimum of four rounds.
At each event 8 players will qualify for Saturdays final. If all goes according to plan, that should be every player on a 4:0 unbroken record, as well as the top points finishers on 3:1.
Saturday's European Championship Final consists of the two T8 finishers from the two qualifiers, plus the three National Champions: Alex Crow (England), Dimitri Fietta (Italy) and Miguel Garrido (Spain). The format for this event will be 300 point Modern Age. Please don't preregister yourself for this (no matter how badly you fancy your chances...) - unless you are already one of our three National Champions of course!
What figure sets and maps are legal?
You can use any Modern age figure, even ones that have not as yet been officially released in Europe. This means you can build your force using Convention Exclusives you intend to buy at the event or the different coloured lantern batteries.
The legal map sets remain unchanged from the summer's Nationals and Worlds events. We will bring a selection of maps to the event in case everyone forgets to bring one, but your choice will be dramatically limited. So if you want to field that Deadpool Fast Forces map, make sure you bring it!
Marvel: 1-2 Avengers vs. X-Men Latveria/Drowned Wakanda 3-4 Avengers vs. X-Men Kun’Lun/Moon 5-6 Wolverine and the X-Men Danger Room/Canadian Wilderness 7-8 Captain America The Winter Soldier Triskelion Helibay Indoor/Helicarrier Outdoor 9-10 Deadpool Fast Forces Thunderbolts/Submarine
DC: 1-2 Teen Titans N.O.W.H.E.R.E.: The Crucible/ Teen Titans Tower: Great Hall 3-4 Teen Titans Fast Forces N.O.W.H.E.R.E.: Arctic Base/Teen Titans Tower: Tower Ground 5-6 Superman and the Legion of Super-Heroes Apokolips/ Legion Plaza 7-8 Superman and the Legion of Super-Heroes Fast Forces Hall of Doom/Slaughter Swamp 9-10 War of Light Ranx/Oa Plaza
What should I bring?
Your figures and their cards, your choice of map, object counters, action tokens, a PAC card, dice, a pen or pencil to fill in your HeroClix Army Sheet, enough cash to play in the event you want to play in and to buy the convention figures you want to own and a positive attitude!
I know a lot of people like to use their ROC dice, and there is some question about whether or not engraved dice roll true or not. The simplest way of addressing dice legality in a miniatures event is to give every player the right to use their opponents dice for any roll they need to make during the game.
What Convention Exclusives are available?
Zombie Galactus: 45 Euros Black Lantern Anti Monitor: 45 Euros Impossible Man: 10 Euros Resurrection Man: 10 Euros
And for the first time in Europe:
Black and White Lantern Pack: 25 Euros Captain America Sentinel: 25 Euros Spider Man Team Base: 25 Euros Star Trek Attack Wing: Deep Space 9: 80 Euros Star Trek Attack Wing: Cloaked Ships: 40 Euros
Both the Star Trek Attack Wing sets come with convention exclusive DS9 Crew Upgrade cards.
Convention Exclusives will be limited availability, first come first served with a limit of one of each per customer per day.
What are the prizes?
Each player in each event will get a minimum of one LE figure as a participation prize; the better you do, the more prize LE's you'll get to choose. You'll also see a few spot prizes for sporting behaviour, high points scoring in each strength of schedule and more. There will also be additional prizes available at Battle Royale side events, space, time and stock permitting!
#2 RE: Erste bestätigte Informationen zu Quali & EM 2014 auf der Spielemesse in Essen
Ich will ja keine schlechte Stimmung verbreiten aber wir sollten uns auf die ein oder andere Enttäuschung einstellen. Speziell alle die von weiterfern anreisen und auf 4 Tage Spaß & Heroclix hoffen! Bisher sind die Drafts NUR für die beiden Hoteltage geplant...wo wir eigentlich in den Qualis sitzen! Letztes Jahr wurden die Figuren noch wie Kamelle an Karneval rausgehauen und das erschließt sich für dieses Jahr noch nicht so direkt...
