Hi guys!

We’d like to welcome you all Norrköping, Sweden on the 21-22 of May 2016 for the EEC 2016!

We will continue to build on the format used by previous two tournaments. It will be a team tournament and each team should have 4 members.

We will be able to arrange for up to 8 teams to come to the event (e.g. 32 players or 16 tables). Games will be arranged between teams so for instance during round 1 all four players in team UK will be matched against the players from team Norway etc. Within the teams players will be matched according to swiss.

Each country’s community decide on how to choose these teams as they see fit as previously. Teams from different countries will have precedence, however a country may bring more than one team if all 8 posistion are not taken by actual countries (a likely event based on attendance previous years). We reserve the right to take the first dual team place for Sweden, if any, with us having the home turf. ;D

Five rounds will be played over two days. Three on the Saturday and two on the Sunday. Each round will be 3 hours maximum, in addition after 2h 30 min a call will go out to mark the time and players are asked to not start any new game turns. A scedule for the event can be seen below.

A players score in each game will be based on the epic-UK tournament scoring system. A teams score is the total of the four players individual score. Each team will recieve a bonus 20 pts to it’s team score if they get more wins in a round then the opposing team (not counting winning draws).

Prices will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, best individual score, and best painting (per popular vote).

Wheres Norrköping?

Norrköping is located on the east coast of Sweden about 80km south of Stockholm. It's Swedens 10th biggest city .

The venue?

We'll host the EEC at the Primate Lounge which is a big MMA Gym located next to the bus- and train stations. We have 500m2 of space to make use of. Games will be fought on tables standing in a boxing ring and on a wrestling mats with lots of pads and sand bags around for participants to use if the dice gods doesn't favour them... :P

How do i get there?

Theres both express busses and trains going from Stockholm central station. With the bus it takes 2 hours and with the train 1,5 hours. The venue is a 5-10 minute walk from both the bus station and the train station.

You could also fly with Ryanair which would take you to Stockholm Skavsta airport which is about 45km from Norrköping. From there it's a bus ride of maximum 1 hour to the city.

What will it cost?

The cost is set to 20 Euros per person.

Where to stay?

Theres a couple of alternatives within a 10 min walking distance to the venue:

http://www.centralstationens.se/ (a hostel located on the upper floor of the train station)

http://www.hotelalbatross.se/ ( a hotel located right in between the Norrköping police station and an area with lots of biker clubs and non official after hour clubs)

http://www.marican-hotel.com/default.html (small hostel/hotel right by the Old theather house of Norrköping. Very close to lots of good restaurants)

theres more pricy hotels very close to the venue like Scandic hotel, President hotel and Grand Hotel. Please check them out at a booking site for the best prices and offers.

Awesome!

Train goes from Copenhagen (Denmark) to Norrköping as well as far as I can see on http://reiseauskunft.bahn.de

So any city with trains to Copenhagen (Hamburg/Berlin) can take the train as well.

I think that's cutting it a bit close.
Teams will surely have finalized their lists before the deadline, any last minute changes are counter productive and may trigger conceptual changes and in the worst case new units to paint to fit that stylish EEC army you prepared.

So a month before deadline would be a better date to freeze the lists. That's enough time to think about any change or even switching armies, if somebody corrects that oversight in the armylist and turns that super cheesy army into an ordinary army.

The idea of a 'Team Orange' is being explored. This would be a Dutch-English coalition as 4 Dutch players is unlikely. I know this is not pure but it is a way of introducing a new Country to the Euros. Dutch players would get priority over English players for places in the team. I don't know if this idea would be positively received by other nations?
