    Hungarian National Championship 2019

    Info updated with attendee levels we need to reach to get a better package for the winner. Important: the price of the ticket will be raised from March, so if you plan to participate (and you should), don't hesitate with the financial part. We need to see the rough numbers as early as possible to properly prepare for the event. Thanks for your cooperation!
  2. Hungarian National Championship 2019 Did you know? In 2018 the Hungarian National Championship had the most diverse audience regarding nationalities with 10 different countries represented. Let’s try to beat that number this year! Date: 25th - 26th May 2019 Maximum number of players: 64 Place: Africafe Club Address: Hungary, 1092 Budapest, Kinizsi u. 2. (Google Map: https://goo.gl/maps/rx4r7L5HgMq) Longshanks link: https://www.longshanks.org/events/?event=1800 Entry Fee: Early bird: 5000 Hungarian Forints (HUF) - till the end of February Normal price: 7000 Hungarian Forints (HUF) - from March Prizes: Swag bag for all participants and various prizes for the best players and painters. The winner of the tournament earns a place in the 2019 World Championship final and could potentially get a free Con ticket (30+ attendees), free hotel (40+) and free travel (50+). Registration: You need to pay the entry fee through PayPal to csontpet@gmail.com. Please, make sure that we receive the exact amount in HUF (ie. pick Family&Friends transaction and chose HUF as target currency). Important: write your Longshanks name in the notes section so we can add you to the list. We can accept multiple registrations in one go but don't forget to give us the necessary info about all players. According to the plan, we will play 4 games on Saturday and only 2 on Sunday. In this way, we will finish before 3 pm on Sunday so foreign participants would have an easier time to catch returning planes, trains etc. Questions: you can comment below this post, send me a PM or an email to csontpet@gmail.com
  3. Is this thread still under consideration by the ruling team? It would be nice to get a ruling about the above, more complicated situations. From the answers of the community, it looks like the rule is not that straightforward to implement. Thanks!
  4. Ok, let's spice this up a little more with Crucible and Naja getting in the way. Where will the ball land? There is no point where you could place it on the ball path and in base contact with the terrain. I'm pressing this because I would like to see the intent behind this "along the ball path" part which I find very vague.
  5. We got a situation where a goal kick landed on a barrier and we are not sure about the interpretation of the rules. So the question is: which position should be the ball placed in the attached picture? The one that is closest to the correct location (A), or the one that is "along the ball path" is the closest legal spot (B)? Or maybe a third place?

    Poor showing on YouTube. Are Brewers that bad?

    I think this would lead us to off-topic fields but you can dig the whole database on Longshanks for answers to this kind of questions.

    Statistics of tournament GB games played from 18th May. So no, they are not bottom tier and yes, they can be played and expected to win. You arrived just at the right moment, during Magical Christmas time.
  8. So this won't be a rules question per se rather my surprising revelation but I still think the topic belongs to the rules forum. I started to think about the status of the crossplayers in the Major-Minor Guild pairs. Reading the cards and the rules I came up with my own answer that they function like the Union players in other Guilds and not as Dual Guild players (like Compound or Lucky). Then I found this topic which clearly stated that I was wrong. I'm all good with this intent but I would like to note that the current rules, cards are not really backing this. Firstly the card that comes with the Ratcatchers references Bonesaw and vGraves as Mortician players - pretty much the same way as other Guilds get their Union picks which are obviously not Dual Guild players. (Btw Morticians need an updated version in the resource section since they could still hire Union according to that pdf.) Secondly Compound and Lucky both have strong visual signs on their cards that they belong to two Guilds. Split logo at the top left corner and also split background. These things are completely missing from the player cards of Pelage and Skulk or the updated once of Bonesaw and vGraves. The only clue is on the back of their cards in the form of two Guild signs at the bottom right corner. I think these things could lead to confusion among casual players who are not hunting for info in blog posts or surfing the forums regularly and probably the coming of S4 is a good opportunity to make things clearer. Bonus note: while I was trying to track down the issue I stumbled upon a very strange/funny thing in the rulebook. If you strictly follow the rules as written you can't decide what Guild a certain player is playing for. Of course, it is clear that the icon and the background should guide you to the correct direction (or not in case of Minor crossovers) but the part that talks about the details of a profile card (p4-6) doesn't contain anything about Guild affiliation or how that is marked on the cards.
  9. Well done, Edek! I can just agree with you in every aspect.

    Game plan deck revealed

    Hitting an event that has 0,0031423% of probability is usually followed by strong reactions.
  11. Thankfully, in our community the numbers are still growing but we do see and want to address the possible NPEs. Thresher/Farmers: experienced players voluntarily avoid taking the guild before that bunch of supermen finally get a well deserved nerf. Event stress/frustration: in a bi-monthly base we split our players into two groups (according to ranking points) and hold two separate tournaments parallel. In that way, the not so good or less experienced players can swim in a nicer, more welcoming pond and even snatch a medal with their performance.
