2011 World Championships
« on: May 22, 2011, 01:14:03 PM »
One of my players in the So-Cal area (yes, the same location your 2010 Wolrd Champion came from ...  ;) ), who won the ACMT this year is asking me...

"Where is Worlds being held this year? When is it?"

I had to be honest and say, I don't know if we're having one this year.

What is the latest information on this? Thanks,

VC

Most CCGs hold their World Championships at GenCon, but since we had the whole Wrestlemania thing going, it was held that weekend in the same city instead.  Since we no longer have 'corporate sponsorship' (heh), we're back to holding it at GenCon.  :)

So yeah, Aug 4th-7th in Indianapolis - GenCon will again be the location of the World Championships, like last year.

Thanks. I was aware of the location, that much I did know. I just wasn't sure what the status was in even having an event this year. It's coming up on June and there's not much talk about the event, so I just wanted to be clear.

Our current ACMT Champion is a member of this board, so I'm sure he'll get the news right here!

Thanks again, Creed.

I'm gonna reroute the scheduling info here:

I suppose it's about time we got a poll going on the formats for the Last Chance Qualifiers. Look for that in a few minutes.

Justin (our current World Champion), are you making any plans to attend this year's Worlds to defend your title?

Ric, I'll be getting with you soon to help me get the RAW Deal Planet website updated with all this information plus the images for all the prize cards.

Speaking of prize cards, Creed, can you please contact me about anything new other than the 2 cards we debut at this years ACMT?

I want to start putting together the prize support for this year's Worlds. I don't think I can offer up another replica belt (I've offered 3 of them so far over the past 2 years), but I'll see what I can do.

Thanks,

Is the actual World Championships on Sat Aug 6, or Sun Aug 7? And if it's on the 7th, any idea what time it'll start/end? I'm just asking so I can set-up flight/work arrangements. Thanks!

The World Championship will be held on Sunday. Most likely around 10:30 or 11:00 am. The final rounds may very well be held at the Steak n Shake down the road.
