Re: Tournaments 2019

Personally I would find just going to the same venue off putting - I like going to different venues where there are other games being played so as to catch up with people that I would not otherwise see. Additionally some venues have a show where things can be bought which adds. In respect of the pla...

Re: The new scoring system...

IMO all this talk of handicaps is pretty pointless as I don't believe that scoring systems impact to any material degree on the enjoyment of the vast majority of players. IMO (and lets face it its all anecdotal) the thing that puts people off comps the most is not losing to a more experienced player...

Re: The new scoring system...

But, IIRC, they are for just 12 months results and you cannot get a "full" ranking unless you do 6 (?) comps. So a good player who hasn't played recently, or plays occasionally, will be ranked low even if their last games were all victories.

Re: The new scoring system...

I suspect what Dave is getting at is that there aren't that many MeG players who jumped directly from FoG:AM to MeG, but there are quite a few who did play FoG:AM after moving from DBM but then moved onto FoW or something else and have now moved to MeG.

Re: The new scoring system...

Well to comment on Chris' question about people promoting v3 I'd have to say that Dave's posts are generally nice and positive about the game and are likely to encourage IMO. A bit different from Chris who always seems to be moaning about something to me - I'm sure he is trying to help but the wordi...

Safest is to leave a gap the same width as the evading unit :D

What is the minimum to be viable at Britcon Tim?

Re: Britcon 2018

With a dozen (and still growing) signed up for Devizes as well, I suspect rumours of FoGR's demise are somewhat overstated! Also Attack have provided extra spaces for FoG:R due to demand. Britcon's lack of entries seems to be rather the exception than the rule at present. Not sure what the cause is.

Re: Britcon 2018

I may struggle making this after all - just realised it starts the Friday after I will have just come back from a 10 day living history event in Denmark with the Company of St George. May just not work :(

Re: Britcon 2018

Despite my dislike of open comps I am thinking about the possibility of Britcon this year for the first time since I was part of the org team :shock:

Just wondering who else is going for FoG:R?
