Hey Guys, I'd like to get some feedback - both positive and negative - from this year's BPO. I think that @Yarium and I did a pretty good job, but there is always room for improvement. Please comment on some or all of the following, plus anything else that you want to add. If you don't want to submit publically then please PM the two of us. ------- Venue - How was the physical space that we used? Was there enough room to move around? Were there alligators in the washrooms? Food - How was the food this year? Was it of a decent quality? Was there enough? Would you be willing to pay more for lunch next year (this year was heavily subsitized), or would you want something simple? Organization - Were we organized enough for you? Did we look like we had no idea? Schedule - Was there enough time to complete you games? Would you like longer rounds with more time between games? Would you like to change the start or end times? Prize Support - We had some very generous prize support from The Basement Collective (bolded because I blew it on my first go round), Dark Shard, Games Nook and Reckless Assault Gaming and Entertainment, as well as Mark's Purity Seals. Did you approve of the distribution of prizes? Four Best-Of prizes, two other placing based awards, four in-game raffle prizes. Tournament Format - Do you like three games? Four or Five? Would you be interested in a two day Saturday/Sunday event? Game Size - Do you like 2000 points? Would you prefer smaller? Would you prefer a teams event? Event Frequency - Given our demographic (20-40) we all have busy lives. How often would you like to see large local events run? How often would you like to see small local events? What about a tabletop game convention where multiple game systems come together over a weekend?
What we have here is an epic challenge of the ages. Taylor vs. OJ. Warhammer 40k. In preparation for the BPO, OJ and I are going to engage in an exhausting challenge - to paint and base everything we need to play in that tournament. Why should you care? Because it wouldn't be a challenge if there weren't stakes involved, and a chance to profit from our inherent laziness. If OJ does not complete his challenge, we will raffle off a NoS Sylvaneth Treeman Lord. If I don't complete my challenge, I will raffle off a NoS Imperial Knight. We have until November 17th at midnight to post our pictures. We Will, of course, keep everyone updated on our progress. OJ even promised to post Work in Progress pictures regularly (he actually didn't, but fuck that - he will). So, with that being said, this is how we are doing the raffle. If you post constructively in this thread, you get one entry. If you post a picture of what you're working on along side us, you will get TWO entries. If you post pictures with a bit about how you achieved your desired effect, you will get THREE entries. So, what are we painting? Here is the lists. OJ Completed to date 10 - Rubric Marines 10 - Tzangors 5 - Occult Terminators - 3 - Exalted Sorcerers - 1 - 1K sons Demon Prince - 1 - Ahriman - 1 - Eversor Assassin - 1 - Wraith Knights 2 - Wraith Lords 2 - Eldar Flyer - Complete Taylor 10x Nurgle Harpies 2x Daemon Princes 2x Hugely Converted Rhinos 2x Almost Scratch Built Helbrutes 10x Plague Marines 1x Glottkin 1x Great Unclean One (Corbax Utterblight) We start this upcoming Saturday! Stay tuned!!

A: The kitchen staff has been turned over due to... performance issues. Q: Where do I register? A: Best Coast Pairings will be available soon. First to pay, First to play. Feel free to voice your interest in this thread! Edited: I've been waiting for BCP to have a Tournament Organizer App that doesn't require an iThing. That hasn't happened. We will be managing registration between here and the Facebook Event. Q: Is this competitive or casual? A: This event is what the players make it. We aim to accommodate all types of players, and use a self-imposed ranking system that helps ensure you fight people with the same mind-set as yourself for your first matchup. Historically, this has work very well and everyone has left happy. Q: How do I win prizes? A: The BPO rewards the full hobby. Prizes are awarded for Best General, Best Sportsman, and Best Hobbyist while the top prize is awarded to the player with the aggregate score (all scoring tracks are weighted equally). Prize support and distribution is dependent on attendance. Last year we had a total purse in excess of $1000 distributed to nearly 10 prizes! ---------------- Registration The following is a list of players who have shown interest in attending. We can accept 24 players and will continue to manage a wait list. Players who pre-pay by October 17 will be guaranteed a spot.
