Think you have the date of the tournament wrong in the title.

Would you be posting the scenarios you use so that all of us who can't afford to go to the USA can have a go in their own clubs?

Thanks

Once the details have been decided, yes I will update this post with what missions will be played and where they are from. Thanks for catching the date issue.

Sorry, I'm a bit of a pedant.
Date says March, should be April.

Actually, the title is correct and the detail in the post is incorrect. Adepticon 2017 is March 23-26.

And the time in the post says it will go to 1400 (probably correct based on the detail provided) while the Adepticon site says 1300 (probably incorrect).

Hmmm ... tempting though. Could get me to go to my first Adepticon.

Any info about prizes you can release Dave T.O.? Just curious because $30 badge fee and $10 entry fee could buy several tanks.

Thanks for the mis-type in the date info.

Time is as set, as long as the start time is good, so are we.

Prizes are not set yet, but there will probably be some terrain in the mix.

I hope you'll appreciate this is a big opportunity to generate a lot of content for Tanks as this is probably first (semi-) official Tanks tournament.

[1] I'd love to see an extensive in depth report as a blog post for the Tanks website, including many many many photos :)

[2] It would be interesting to see the number of participants per faction (including how many wins/draws/losses per faction).

[3] Also it might be worth doing subsequent small blog posts on the highest ranking players platoon lists per faction. Maybe with mini interviews?

[4] And finally maybe a blog post with recommendations / lessons learned from running a Tanks tournament might be a good resource for future tournaments, especially for independent organizers.
