Mage Wars German Nationals 2018
« on: May 10, 2018, 04:47:37 AM »
Hey all! The largest Mage Wars tournament worldwide is coming up in two weeks (May 26-27) in Germany. In the previous two years there were even more players than at GenCon. Perhaps some of you would still like to join? If you'd like more details in English please don't hesitate to ask! Please do hurry though because registry closes soon!

The full tournament rules (in German) can be found here:

Hi Thesaris  :D

Thanks to you and Jannis for organizing and running this tournament.
I had a fantastic time.
26 players this year :)
Also weather was sunny and hot and we sat outdoors playing Mage Wars.

Congrats to Enti for winning German National for the second year in a year.
Zombie Brute Necro/Namnam Kralathor Druid.

Congrats to Keejchen for second place. Not easy to beat both Enti and Juli, to just make it!
Not-Elemental Wizard/Felella Druid.

Juli came third. 0,01 points away from the finals.
Great meeting you in real live and hope you don´t hate playing live to much.
Forcekill FM/Brute Necro.

Fritz came fourth.
Awesome playing with you again. And i actually got a lot from our Paladin mirror and talking to you.
Will love to come to your town and make the Paladin haters shut up :)
Adramalech Warlock/Mighty Paladin.

Id actually like to talk about signing of Mage Wars card here also (cause im loving it)

I think we should let top 3 players sign important cards from their spellbooks.
It would be great prizes and it would make for great display for tourneys to come and for FB, forums, national television etc.

So here it goes:
Enti
A signed Kralathor with a text like the sound he makes when he eats someone: pluurrrrph ?
A signed Tanglevine "Ich liebe tanglevine"

Keejchen
A signed Felella "??"
A signed Mage Wand "Mage Wands wins games"

Juli
A signed Forcemaster "Why do they call it Force Pull? - they should call it FORCE KILL.
@Pudding +1.
I would like a special one just for me "NO BIBLO - you cannot reveal Nullify to stop Dispel"
Thanks for helping me getting started at OCTGN.

Fritz
A signed Adramalech Warlock "something German"
@Shark "When in doubt - Kill it with fire"

I mean think about it. Wouldn't it be great to have a signed copy of:

Alfiya by Alfiya
Clear Mind by Brian Pope
Priest by Coshade
Wizard by Zot

I already got a signed copy of a Silverclaw Grizzly by guess who?

I think it has potential.

Anyway i look forward to see the books in action, on Enti and Keejchen channels. When Juli, Enti and Keejchen plays the rematches online.

I'll point out my friend you're the only person in the world to have a signed copy of a Steelclaw Grizzly from me :) don't go showing it off too much or everyone is going to want one.

What we must all remember is no matter the game we were all newbies at one point.

Dear players,

What an extraordinary weekend we had! Thank you all for that! I think we can be proud to have such an exemplary community. We would appreciate your feedback!

What is there for us to improve? I think the majority of players approved of the new scoring system and that it lead to fairer rankings. We need to speed up the scoring process in between rounds and will use a notebook or tablet next time.

We took some photos but would really also like to collect all of your images from the event. Jannis will publish a link soon where you can upload and view everybody’s photos.

You can find the full results here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/xqm9eigsbs0rdq7/GN2018_Results.pdf?dl=0

We really hope to see you all again next year in Bad Nauheim!

Thank you very much again,
Jannis and Jan
