ETC vote on system change

Postby Eternal flitter » Thu Sep 24, 2015 12:01 pm

So the ETC is voting on a new system that will replace WHFB 8th at future events.

All the details are in this thread:

To vote you need to be born in England and have played a tournament in the last 18 months.

Even Labour had a more stringent voting system than that! ;)
(Although I'm chuckling that KoW is ranked lower than AoS.)

Good luck to 'em.
Although I think KoW might do surprisingly well to objective voting - it's one of only two on that list that will have ongoing support, and unlike AoS wouldn't require heavy lifting to get the game usable in a 'traditional' tournament format.

I don't think anything was intended by the order of the candidates in the list, but hey I'm no psychologist and as far as I'm aware Leggy is fairly pro AoS anyway. I reckon AoS might come out top from England, but even then there just aren't the numbers signed up for events: and the UK is WAY ahead of Europe as far as attendance for AoS goes.

Frankly I'd be surprised if it did - because once you've gone with AoS as a tournament game, you're then having to pick 'vanilla' or 'competitive', and if you go competitive you then have to pick from the myriad of comp systems...
I want to see the game do well, but I don't think it'll scratch the itch for a lot of ETC folks.
