6th Elvensword Ambassadorial AFTERMATH

Postby Unorthodoxy » Mon Jan 30, 2017 10:29 am

The Grand Tournament is complete and the big news is, it was big news!

We had 30 Ambassadors, and it was a great time. As always we provided snacks, drinks, full on Teriyaki lunches, complimentary Gyoza, massive prize support including free tournament dice, and Raffles; and of course the prizes for placing which were $1000 on their own.

Interesting firsts happened during this festival of Warhammering. The most notable:

1. For one of our Bracket winners, Nathan Billings, it was his FIRST TIME even winning a tournament!

2. We also saw the manifestation here on the Prime Material Plane of the River Styx, of which there are pictures on the Facebook page in a match between Shaylynn Allen and Lars White.

3. We had our very first sighting at our tournament of Joshua Death, who is renowned in the ITC. He came all the way from South Dakota to participate. So our first South Dakotan!

4. This also marked the very first time we separated from our typical bracketing structure to include a seeding round ,wherein each race had to look in the mirror and face themselves before venturing fully into the Elvensword Arena!

5. This was also the very first time that a Tau Empire force took an Elvensword Ambassadorial bracket! The Tau Empire fought for it but lost in the 3rd Elvensword Ambassadorial Tournament, but hadn't even made the Final Four since then, until now.
Not only that but this also marked the first time a Dark Eldar made it into the Final Four!

6. This was the first time an onsite masseuse was made available to the players, and we absolutely foresee this happening again at the Elvensword events.

Any other firsts? Share them! Enjoyed yourself? Tell everyone why! Pictures? Post them.

As a follow up worth mentioning, the results did get in on time for everyones ITC points from the Elvensword Ambassadorial Tournament and the ITC standings have been updated.

Congratulations to Nathan Billings and Sean Morgan for winning their brackets, and to everyone who competed in the ITC this year. There were 5435 Generals ranked in the ITC for 2016, and the Portland-Seattle corridor had many more than its share of excellent generals represented.
