ETC game six match ups

Hey ya.

 

So it’s the last round. It all hangs in the balance. Who will be the champions of ETC 2012? Only time will tell, but again I am surprised by the calmness of the dudes. It’s quite fun being here and when happy people play, Gareth is happy.

 

Just a little disclaimer first. I just want to state that all the things within this blog are totally my opinions and feelings. I say what I see and what I hear, no offense or incorrect information is intended. I am one little guy giving my views out to the geek world. So in terms of corrections, it’s been noted that, apparently, there were no unofficial yellow cards given yesterday…I have been told. And the same happy organiser has told me that the hall was in fact not given for free…Ok. Again I only report what I see and hear. But maybe geeks are the biggest gossips around.

 

I do want to give a shout out to one of the main organisers, Buzz. He has been so welcoming to me and my work and is such a lovely guy. So thanks dude. And also a massive big up to www.puppetswar.eu for the use of the internet and computers. Needed communication to the outside world. But Buzz assures me that next year (should they host the etc) internet for Gareth is a number one priority.

 

I have also been the self appointed / unofficial photographer for the event, taking team portraits. These are the ones you see on this blog and I hope you like them. But is has sometimes been an effort to get these. Some teams (maybe rightly so) have been too focused on the game to get a group pictures…that will live forever on the web…that take a few minutes to do. I have most, but, as I have said to them, I’m not wasting my time by constantly returning to the same countries to see if they are ‘ready’.

 

What has impressed me about this event is the teams swapping gifts and shirts after their games. I feel that’s a nice touch and it shows great sportsmanship. It like a ‘proper’ sporting event. And I suppose it is; sweat, tears and competition. It’s very hot here in Poland and depending on where you are in the hall, the sun is streaming in. Some teams (Denmark) are mostly topless (nice). That may be a bit off-putting for some people and the larger of the people, but maybe it adds to the excitement. I find it funny to see the guys leaving their games to stand in front of the massive fan, trying to be Marylyn Monroe. But I’ve heard that the 40k is like a sweaty old mans pub. Nice!

 

So the match ups are as follows:

 

Engalnd V Malta.

They seem to be doing ok. Maybe a win on the cards, but some match ups are hard and not going in the way planned. Failed charges, bad dice rolls and poor magic are not helping. Maybe that ironic being baaaaaaad daaaaice.

 

OGRES V VC

TK v DE

These guys are doing great and moving up. Hope this win this match up as (most of the time) they seem to be quite focused. I enjoy me time with them and think they deserve to get a good result. No games have finished early

We have a big social / piss up later, so depending on the results this could be an amazing laugh or a ‘drown your sorrows’ event. Either way…bring it in.

 

Results next, so place you bets please. As of writing England have three wins and a loss.

 

Peace,

G
