I’m back with another webcam tournament!
It’s now July and hot off the presses of the previous webcam tournament we’re heading straight into the next one! This time the date is for Saturday July 11th which is slightly sooner than the June tournament but now on a date which doesn’t clash. As always it’s a fun best of 1 tournament designed to get people playing again with a more structured and competitive focus but all levels of players are welcome. As always entrance is free.
Tournament Format and Details
The tournament will be in Grand Skirmish format and consist of 4 best of 1 rounds. The reason it is best of 1 is because playing via webcam can be a bit more difficult due to logistical reasons, mostly because of camera management. This is why rounds are also 60 minutes instead of 45 minutes. Of course you’ll also need a camera to stream your setup which can be more of an issue. Setting up Warhammer Underworlds for streaming can be difficult but Well of Power has written up a guide here.
Remember this tournament will be done over Zoom so you’ll need to make an account and download the appropriate software. The good news it is free so you won’t have to pay. As it’ll be done over Zoom you can also use the app to stream via your mobile phone if you lack a webcam or camera. It will be better with a tripod but it’s a good option for players who lack recording equipment to stream with.
If you want to play, just follow the link to the tournament and register on the signup page (you can find it directly here). While this is a tournament it’s still mostly for fun and getting games of Warhammer Underworlds in so you don’t need to worry about being the best player ever. What’s important is that you can clearly stream your boards, communicate and have fun.
Just like last time I’ll be streaming the even live on my Twitch channel which you can find here.
There’s been some improvements made for your viewing pleasure. Firstly I’ll have decklists in advance to give better game coverage. Also player interviews will be in-use to help get a better understanding of each winning player and their deck. Overall it should be a much better viewing experience than last time!
So that’s pretty much everything. If you have any interest in signing up and playing, feel free to ask me or Valentin on Facebook in the Warhammer Underworlds pages. We’ll both be more than happy to help get you playing. If you just want to watch, however, then no worries as that’s what me and my stream will be there for! Remember the signup and tournament information can all be found again here.
So whether your watching or playing, see you next time for some more live-streamed crit action!
