Best event ever (feedback)

Post by Jesyce » 11 Aug 2015, 15:43

Of all the many warmachine/hordes events I have been to I would probably rate this as the number one so far. Fantastic venue, great food and very nice gaming tables. The downstairs main gaming area got kinda "hot" but other than that everything else was fantastic.

Thank you!

Awesome event, can't wait to come back next year.

The only thing that could have been a bit better is the team tournament on the Sunday. I'm not sure what kind of event should be in that spot to get people to get out of bed early and/or not prioritize the journey home.

Who's the boss would have gotten me back for Sunday. Finding a team is a bother after two days of gaming.

The Iron Moot has always been a great event, but this time it was leaps and bounds better.

- Gothenburg in august was a LOT more enjoyable than in november. (Even though there were some serious heat in the gaming rooms.... )

- The venue was superb. It is great to get simple good food served on site all weekend, without having to resort to the usual tournament fast food. Free coffee and water cans in the gaming rooms was great. Even though the cost for beer went up, I think it was quite worth it.

I think the main issue is more the fact that the Sunday events where not pre-signup events. If you're signed up ahead of time you're mentally committed and prepared to participate, plus in the case of a team tournament, you've assembled a team. Without signups a lot of people will generally flake out on the third day, I guess even more so without any "serious" events to participate in other than the Invitational. A regular 2-list, 4 round Steamroller would probably be appreciated, you can run several of them side by side if you anticipate a lot of interest for them.

My humble opinions:
-Good venue. Very nice to be able to sleep where you play (not literally)
-Not my kind of food, but good enough for the price!
-I think only the masters of day 1 was behind schedule, very nicely done and it could probably be avoided
-Not enough terrain on the tables in the main area
-Some chess clocks would have been great!

Will I return? Most likely!

Thank you all for the kind words! We highly appriciate your feedback. Regarding the comments about the hotels air condition, they are changng their current system for a new one and therefor it wasn't performing to a 100 % but we (they?) can promise that next year it will be better.

Well, to increase interest for the sunday thing you could have a big board were you write your name if you want to/are going to participate.

It is enough 4 matches per day, semi for the top fourth

Run the voting of "Nicest opponents" on Friday and Saturday. I forget who I was playing in the beginning.

General awards ceremony before the third match on Sunday.

Otherwise it was a wonderful weekend!

It's also quite nice to report the "nice-opponent-score" at the end of each game, if there is a good way to do the reporting anonymously. Then you don't have to remember the games for so long :D

You could view all your tournament games and who you played against in the event reporter...

No. The date is set. You should change your other plans. ;)
