Ok a little bragging here.
Last Saturday was the first time I’ve played Craftworld Eldar since 4th edition and I placed 5th! I’m actually pretty pleased with the results, as my old, perfectionist style of playing Eldar-annoyingly enough-terrorized my opponents (enough to get one couple cussin’ how much he hates Eldar ). My last game was probably my best played game, but it was completely in vain. Brent just couldn’t fail a save the last 3 rounds (I believe he only lost 3-4 models in the last 3 rounds, and I wasn’t short on firepower). Needless to say he was worried the first 3 rounds.
A little word about Tournament-Tracker.NET: this is an online tournament tracking solution that I’ve whipped up in the last few weeks. It’s still in Alpha status, but it performed brilliantly in last week’s tournament for our Administrator. I’m not accepting new public users yet, but I’ll be happy to set up a Tournament-Administrator account if you wish to test the software.
Eventually–when it’s well out of Beta (probably 4-6 months once beta has been removed) –I’ll be charging per tournament. The good news is that at this point it’s going to be a minimal charge: US$5/tournament (which can easily be taken from entry fees). I think this is a pretty fair price for handling all the heavy lifting and keeping permanent records of your tournaments (plus all your player’s tournament stats). Just contact me if you’re interested in trying it out as a tournament-administrator.
You may keep up with the development status of the web application at the development status page.
In time (during beta) I’ll post some YouTube/Vimeo videos of how to use the software, plus put the documentation of how to run a tournament in HTML form as well, although it’s fairly self-explanatory.
