Finally we can announce it, after many months working on it and a lot of time willing to do something like this. Organized by Sin Petaca 2.0 and Bakunin Club.

 

 

We present:

EUROPEAN INFINITY CHALLENGE

 

A different tournament, with a lot of releases and created for maximum enjoyment!

Before introducing the bases, this is the presentation flyer, which resumes in a single look the most important

What is the European Infinity Challenge?

 

This event was born with the intention of becoming a reference in Europe, offering not only a satellite tournament, but an entire experience for the players. Our all inclusive package will allow you to forget everything and enjoy a weekend of fun, relax and a lot of infinity.

 

 

 

What makes it different from other satellites?

 

This event is held in an Aparthotel where not only the tournament will be played, but it will also offer the possibility for all the players to live the three days side by side for a total experience. This hotel has a meeting room of 400 square meters for the tournament, 300 square meters of demonstrations and activities area, private bar for the event, etc ... more than 700 square meters of event! All players will be able to stay at the aparthotel, at an incredible price. All inclusive board and with SPA! Had you ever imagined getting into the cold pool after being beaten in a game? Relax in the Jacuzzi chatting infinity with a player from the other end of the country? This can only be done in the European tournament.

 

 

 

Is it just a tournament in a hotel?

 

Absolutely not, we have many things prepared to make it a unique experience, lots of fun and interesting activities. The Tournament is also innovative in some ways, has a new format unpublished, a qualifying format *.

 

- qualifying? So if I get eliminated, I cannot do anything else?

 

- NO! Here ,the fun never ends. On Saturday ,all the players will play 3 matches, afterwards all the players qualified below the 30th position will get eliminated. But on Sunday they will have the chance to redeem themselves in a tournament of Aristeia OR IN ANOTHER INFINITY TOURNAMENT! It's a 2x1!

 

–“I do not want to play anymore, want to see the island, or enjoy this amazing hotel!”

 

- No problem, because it is not mandatory to play if you get eliminated. Did you come with your partner? Recover some "familypoints" by spending the day with her/him in the SPA or drinking some Caipirinhas. This option will appeal to the most competitive players, who can give everything playing and the most relaxed players because they can enjoy themost of a unique weekend.

 

As we have commented, the European is an experience. And this is just the tip of the iceberg. 

 

Let's get it right; If you keep reading you'll need to buy theflight ticket because you will not want to lose it;)

 

* The qualifying tournament is still pending to fix some details regarding the tournament manager and the ELO, so we will not give you more details until they are solved.

The lists may be posted in the Official Event following the procedure before February 10th.

Mercenary Troops (for example, Yuan Yuan or Avicenna) are only allowed on those Official Lists of Generic and Sectiorial Armies in which they have been included.

The player must point out at the base of the troop or through markers (such as Customeeple's Vision Line Markers or Visual ArcMarkers from Antenociti's Workshop), in a clear and visible manner, which are the 180º LDT of the troops, to facilitate and speed up the gameplay.

 

 

Proxies:

 

the use of miniatures of other brands or manufacturers is not allowed under any circumstances.

The use of transformed miniatures is allowed, provided that most or all of the miniature is made up of pieces of Corvus Belli miniatures and it is completely clear which unit and weapon option is being represented.

 

 

 

Referees:

 

Referees are not to explain rules, their function is to discern between situations in which the regulation is unclear, lines of fire, confrontations, very unusual situations etc ...

Care to elaborate on this? 

There have been situations in the past where a player fired one time telling that he was using DA ammunition and the objective survived. After declaring he was firing again, it is undertood that the ammunition was the same but (according to the rules) it HAS to be declared again. We expect players to assume that certain details (as this one) can be avoided in order to speed up the game and telling "you have not declared the ammunition type" once you are repeating an action is of course legal, but unfair (as far as we understand)

Probably those situations are not really usual but we encourage people to play and enjoy at the same time and going to the limit can lead the organizers to ban a player for future tournaments.

I hope I have clarified the rule, given my limited english :D

Dear all
 
We are overhelmed by the response of the community and we would like to thank you all.
Unfortunately, for those of you who have not yet signed up, there are no places left.
Those who sign up will be in the waiting list, if the places increased we will follow the inscription order
We will seriously evaluate the possibility of increasing the number of players, and for this we will contact with the clubs on the island to lend us the tables.
We will need a couple of weeks to evaluate if we can do it.
We would like to reiterate our gratitude for the welcome and hope to live up to expectations.
We will work hard every day to achieve it.
 
Kind regards

Wow, this is a really ambitious and cool event!  I'm eager to see how it all plays out.  I must admit to not being to thrilled about cutting players after the first day, but since I won't be there... I'll withhold judgment. ;)

Also, on the gymkhana event.... this kind of gymkhana?
