Equinox 2018 – Tournament Report

Posted on March 19th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

Wargaming interest in the North Island of NZ is super strong at the moment and Equinox was run at the beginning of March so Hobbyists could rock their game during tournament season. This year saw a strange phenomenon which we haven’t seen before of Hobbyists almost all registering their interest within three weeks till the tournament start. This meant that to ensure the tournament didn’t see a huge loss, the venue was downsized for the Wargaming section of the convention. Some might say we upgraded as well, since we were Wargaming at the ‘Auckland Rose Park Hotel’ with full Bar, Restaurant, and Air Conditioning. Hosting almost 50 players, the venue was a den of happy gamers.

Help us Event Organisers out Hobbyists. Pre-register early so that the tournament can have the time and resources to prep and plan a awesome weekend for you to enjoy fully. With almost 30 on the waitlist wanting to come to Equinox on the books and no space because of the smaller venue, we couldn’t capitalize on perhaps another large gathering for our hobby . If those waitlisted had been a little earlier in the show of interest, then it would have seen another super sized event that regularly happens at this annual Convention. The more attendees at an event means that we can promote our game to the public better and this is why we do this isn’t it? We all want to grow our hobby so it doesn’t just stay a small niche market. Lets do it better next event and make the hobby great again!
This year Equinox concentrated on the ever growing strength of numbers of Warhammer 40K and Fantasy battle. We saw travellers and locals competing at the Auckland venue and it created a great friendly rivalry between the group. It was spectacular to see Old and new players finding joy again playing their game at the venue. I for one have got wargaming in the blood and to see it amongst the whole group was a marvelous thing to witness.
** Important read **
The results are to follow and I apologise for their slightly late release. As we all know at Equinox, The event is run with a team of T.O’s. If we have any logistics or appeals then all the major T.O’s will be notified (this takes time to coordinate) and the situation attended to. I am glad to say that the W40K tournament were Scholars and Gentlemen. The T9A side of the tournament we had a few repeat resubmitters and 2 of which who made a carry on about their subsequent late penalty and strangely suggested how they could have helped us better score the tournament results. Normally this wouldn’t be made public but it was too humourous a story not to share. If you can’t get lists right after 4-5 times resubmitting, I do suspect that you’d have a tough time tournament scoring. You may find that you’d need to resubmit that as well a few times. This after a little while made all T.O’s laugh a little bit and we all made the decision to ignore the clowns in the room and moved on. Hope you 2 (you know who you are) had a good laugh but people have lives to spend their time with and not waste it in foolery. Save us the hassle and use a Army Builder in future, plus don’t repeat the situation again.

Warhammer 40K Results
This year we had a great contingent from the Far North and Lower North Island providing some stiff competition for the locals. We saw a seasawing at the top of the tables with Tau, Tyranids, AM, Chaos and a few other factions all closely packed for the first days honours. It would be a very competitive second day that would decide the top tables. With so many varied factions and lists the majority of attendees reported that they were all enjoying the experience too. 
Astra Militarum has been dominating events both here in Auckland and around the world lately. At Equinox, their dominance was going to be sorely tested. It was going to be a test of Strategic skill and the fall of dice to decide the Champion.

Congratulations to the Champions. The tournament had been designed to encourage maximum carnage and Kill points was the key to winning the tournament (mentioned in the morning pre-tournament brief) More complexity is planned for our next tournaments with a emphasis on making sure that it doesn’t impact on the time required to play. With only 2hrs 30 in rounds, it left the game slightly tight for 2000pts. All those factors will be taken into consideration with future Players packs.

The 9th Age: Fantasy Battle
Good field of contestants and short a fair few regulars with real life commitments this time around. It would of been great to see more players support this event from around the country but ultimately it’s a big journey if you don’t live local. The tournament will endeavour to provide more advance notice where we can. It’s good that the game is getting more traction and exposure and hopefully from word of mouth we can jump start this amazing real Fantasy Battle game into a heavyweight in the future.
This time around the tournament was using the Ver 2 Beta rules. I hear from good sources that this will be the stable rules for the next foreseeable future. It plays amazingly well and is an excellent design with signature innovation. If you’ve been a WHFB or other type of Fantasy Battle enthusiast then this ranked battle game you should definitely give a go. Use a Army builder and it makes it easy to create your lists for tournaments. The ability to build multiple lists to chose from will not only make you enjoy the game better, it will make submitting your lists to tournaments a breeze.  
With Ver 2 so new to the community there wasn’t a meta just yet. Equinox was a great way to test your army and play in a tournament environment with multiple new opponents. From the games I saw, you were rewarded if you stacked the phases to your advantage and was rewarded with action vs inaction.

NB: 
1. There were numerous late lists and we waived the first offence. Multiple repeated resubmits are not acceptable in any situation and a minor 4pts was deducted. We will look at this situation moving forward and perhaps introduce a disqualification for repeated offences. A more concise list of strict penalties will be available in future. Honestly we never thought anyone could muck up repeatedly in this age of gaming support apps. 
2. Penalties were not added to your scores during swiss chess so it would not in any way affect match ups to give advantage or disadvantage.
3. Scores were open to view at all times to all competitors through to round 4 of the 5 round event. 
4. The tournament used multiple Umpires from ACG to help run the event and this is the usual policy with all events Equinox tournaments run.
A Big thank you to our Sponsors. Go support them as they help
us make events happen for you!!

NZ Wargaming Invitationals 2017 – Results

Posted on November 22nd, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

The second annual NZ Wargaming Invitational has just been held over the weekend. We had solid competitive turnout this year so it should from now on be cemented into the Hobbyists calendar of events every year. NZWI is hosted at a fully catered hotel venue with a restaurant and bar so you can relax and just concentrate on having a fun gaming weekend.  Contestants brought their best lists to compete and we have our Champions.

With the ever expanding list of events in NZ, the community is growing fast. NZWI hosted Warhammer 40K & The 9th Age: Fantasy battle this year and will expand the number of systems if the numbers demand.

We will endeavor to work on the invite process and new systems that join the event over the course of the next rankings year. Keep it free on your calendar and come join us and compete in future NZWI end of year events.

Warhammer 40k : T.O: Christian

The competition was over 5 rounds using 8th edition rules and with 2000pts. Competitors gained their invite by placing in the top 10 of a NZ W40k tournament.

Fantasy Battle numbers has grown and 9th Age has captured the imagination of generals around the world. Another huge turnout for ETC (European Team Champs) this year means that the game is growing and the interest is strong. NZ has a fledgling community and it was brilliant to get so many travelers from out of town and from overseas to compete at this years event. Some truely competitive and some whacky lists made the cut and the competition was very close throughout the two days.
