Blog Wars 2 - A Month To Go!!

So Blog Wars 2 is only a month away and to be honest I'm a bit dissapointed with the response. As it stands at the moment there's only a dozen people who've signed up. Last time around I'd sold twice as many tickets.  Now I know there's a few who'd talked about coming but I've not heard from them since.

The question is, what should I do? If in a couple of weeks time there's been little more interest should I just refund everyone and try again in the Summer? Should I run it anyway with just a handful of us? In which case would it be easier just to show up and play a few games rather than having a formal tournament?

I was amazed at the success of the first Blog Wars and perhaps I was naive in assuming that we'd get even more people this time around. I think the problem is that it's probably too close to Christmas. As far as I can tell there aren't any other 40K tournaments that weekend so it isn't that. 

Anyway, I'll leave it up to those of you who've bought tickets. Would you rather I refunded you and called it off or are you happy for it to go ahead with less people and therefore smaller prizes? If you're one of those people that were wanting to come but haven't bought tickets could you get in touch and let me know why so that I can figure out what's gone wrong.

  1. I'm frustrated that I can't make it! I'd love to come along and see fellow bloggers pound me into the ground with their 40K armies...

    plus, £15 for a 3 game 1750pt day of gaming is a pretty good deal... especially when there is a prize pot!

  2. I'm not fussed either way, it's never been about the prizes, the fame, or the women for me :p

    Just good games against people I wouldn't normally play against.

  3. I'm looking forward to it (I have been working on my list/army in advance this time) and its a shame more haven't signed up.

    I know the other Wee-dudes want to come but they have prior commitments. I'm not fussed if you want to postpone it a few months - if it means you can get more attendees.

    How many people would you want paid up to not cancel/postpone it?

  4. Thanks for the support guys. Sorry for being so negative about it. I'm just disappointed cos I'm looking forward to it.

    @the 6th degree: there isn't really a set number I'd want in order to run it but 20 would mean we could run the prize pot as planned.

  8. No mate the Space Wolf blog is closing down in a few weeks, Adam has shown his true colours and turfed everyone out on the street in a nut shell so at this time I' a free agent.

  9. P.S I reckon I can muster up two chums who would love to come along. Technically they do blog but haven't really done much with them lately. :)

  10. I do still plan to try and attend, but I'm having to wait on whether a couple of other things are going to go ahead to ensure I can get that weekend free, so haven't bought a ticket yet. Should hopefully know by the end of next week. I'd definitely like to head up no matter what as its a great fun day.

    Shocking to hear about the Space Wolves blog, and you getting turfed out Brad, just wonder what's gone on to cause it.

  11. I've just bought my ticket, and I'm pretty sure my mate is buying one in the next couple of days so that's 2 more at least! :)
