Nationals announced!
« on: February 02, 2015, 16:03 »
Pokémon trainers! It's that time of year =D

Video game and TCG Nationals for the UK have been finalised. The dates are Sat 30th - Sun 31st May, and it's at Event City in Manchester. It's also looking to be bigger than ever, given that last year we had almost a thousand video game players alone!

I'm also super excited to be the Head Judge for the VG this year ^_^ and it'd be wonderful to see as many of you there as possible!

Even if you've never attended an event before, I totally recommend that you come along - it's a fun day out, even if you're just taking part for the fun of it! All you need is a 3DS, a copy of ORAS and your team of six fighters.

Is anyone thinking of coming? =]

I wish I could, but it's in another country, I don't have that kind of money, and i'm 14.

Congrats on being Head Judge though! Have fun everyone who's going.

I don't have a 3DS and I wouldn't be able to guarantee having that weekend off so I very much doubt my attendance, although anyone who can should definitely go ^^;

I'd be tempted to come, but I've got work that weekend and an exam on the Monday :(

Good luck to anyone who does decide to go though, and hope the judging goes easily for you Kay!

I really want to come along to this but maybe just to watch lol I won't know for sure until my exam dates for uni are announced, which might end up being too late to book accommodation unless I can find a lovely friend/relative nearby.

Woaaah, nice one on being the head judge. What sort of criteria are you given to judge on? I thought it was pretty much just down to winning battles.

Yeah, sure. Because an almost 18-year old in america that only has X can afford that kind of thing. XP

But in all serious, this sounds amazing and I wish I could go. Have fun, Mr. important judge figure guy thing.

Thanks for the support, guys! I'm very nervous but very excited.

I wish I could, but it's in another country, I don't have that kind of money, and i'm 14.

Yeah, sure. Because an almost 18-year old in america that only has X can afford that kind of thing. XP

The states have tournaments, too! (I'm assuming you're American) February Regionals are happening in Virginia, California, Oregon, Missouri and Florida, and there will be more in Spring. Your Nationals are in Indiana.

And if you're not from the states, there are loads of other countries with big tournaments. Holland's is happening this weekend!

Although yeah you do need ORAS to play rather than just XY ^^;

Thankfully the VG is in this golden position where the game itself decides most of the important things for us, but we still have to handle any misconduct, cheating, rudeness.. we also perform hack checks as and when they're needed. It's certainly not as judging-heavy as the TCG, so we also kinda act as stewards for the event.

Meh. I wouldn't come anywhere close to winning, but thanks anyway, Ms. Important Judge Figure Lady.

Congrats on the Head Judge position :P

I'll have to drop by at future VGC events, but that ain't happening yet for a few reasons (coughnojobnomoneyforatraincough)
