Update regarding edition in play for Wet Coast GT 2017

As previously posted we want to give players enough fair warning regarding the edition in play.

With all things pointing to a release of 8th edition by early June, we have chosen a “cut off” date of June 17th. That is to say, if the new edition is released by June 17th, then we will be playing that new edition.We feel three weeks is more than enough to transition to a new system, especially considering its similarities to Age of Sigmar as well as GW’s consistent preview teasers.

Here are the important things to consider if we are able to run 8th;

  • If ALL faction specific codexes are released prior to June 24th they will be allowed, otherwise only the base “generals handbook” will be in play.
  • Point level will remain at 1650
  • Armies must be battle forged.
  • Round time limit may be adjusted as the game is supposed to play substantially faster, however adequate time will be given to assure all games finish. If possible we will look to go to a 6 game event, adding a 4th round on Saturday so as not to mess with Sunday travel plans. As it is a new edition we want to make sure players are able to finish comfortably.
  • Matched, pointed, play will be in use.
  • Any officially published FAQs will be in play, up to and including the day of the event.
  • Further adjustments are possible, but will only be made to promote fairness and consistency through the edition change as more information becomes available. Watch this space!

Wet Coast 2017 Tickets on sale now!

Wet Coast 2017 is around the corner and tickets are now on sale!

The dates are July 8th and 9th at the Grand Villa Hotel & Casino in Burnaby. The Cost is $90.00 ($99 for 40k) (early bird price till June 1st) for the weekend. (Pricing will go up to $100 and $115 respectively June 1st onwards).

I know that may seem higher to those that have been to WetCoast in the past but there have been some changes this year over past years. Lunch will be catered both Saturday and Sunday and is included in the price. That makes it easier to schedule rounds as all attendees from all games sytsems will not be descending on the restaurant at the same time and causing delays starting after lunch rounds.

In Addition every player will receive a bunch of free stuff for the weekend. This free stuff varies from event to event, please check the www.wetcoastgt.com page for details for your event rules and for a run down on the free stuff. Pictures of each free package will be put up shortly.

Lets make our first tournament a Great Tournament a great turnout. Hotel Blocks are available for those who are coming in from out of town. I would love to see all of BC represented. Any person booked in the hotel block will be put in a raffle for a free Cruisehammer ticket per room night booked! More info on a free Cruisehammer ticket can be found here: http://cruisehammer.org/free-ticket-info/
More info on Cruisehammer in general can be found here:

Every event has limited spots, but spots can possibly be expanded for systems that sell out quickly!

Get your hotel room in our block!

Part of what allows us to offer food and lots of SWAG is the fact that we get reduced room rates for people booking rooms in our group.  Please use the link below when getting your hotel room.  It’s $159 a night, which is as good as you’ll get from any of the hotel discount sites.  More rooms means cheaper room rate which equals more prizes!

As an extra incentive this year, if you book a room night, regardless of what game system you’re playing in, we’ll enter you into a draw for a Cruisehammer ticket!  Each room night will get you one entry.
