As y'all may know the ETC is going on right now in Serbia.

Four of our clubmates are attending on the Fantasy side and I always try to keep up with the event. I don't really know any of the people in the 40k side of things, so I'm mostly just going to concentrate on individual Fantasy performance.

Coverage is being filtered through several media sites:

Looks like the USA won its first round both in Fantasy (vs Austria) and in 40k (vs Czech Republic)

Both were minor wins overall -- currently the USA is in 8th place in Fantasy and 11th place in 40k.

From the individual event that took place yesterday I don't see the names of anyone we know, but Tau were on every single one of the top 8 40k tables, including both table 1 teams.

I do like how Travis has his hands on either Alex's balls or thighs in both photos.

Game 2:
Fantasy: USA v Malta
40k: USA v Wales

Fantasy: USA did well vs Malta and is now in 5th place after Round 2.
40k: Looks like more or less a tie vs Wales. Now 9th place.

Round 2 sees Captain Arash win an award for Worst / Most Illegible Score Sheet. Apparently there are no do-overs at the ETC, you just have to scratch out the entire damn thing and try to fit it all in with whatever space is left.

Individual fantasy scores for round two:

Jarrett M - 20
Lee H - 15
Alex S - 13
Travis W - 13
Josh - 11
Larry M - 10
Matt C - 6
Keith B - 1

Game 4:

Fantasy: USA v Russia (uh oh!)
40k: USA v Poland (uh oh!)


Fantasy: Big win v Russia! USA back up to 6th place. Poland got knocked out of 1st place by Germany... which means we'll be facing Poland (one of the big favorites) next.

Germany, Denmark and Italy (all annual favorites) are now in the lead. Greece (!) jumped into 5th place. Germany v Denmark will probably decide which of those two get to face Italy, unless Greece rises up as the great underdawg and shocks Italy. If we can beat Poland we have a good chance of sitting on the top tables.

Individual Fantasy Scores:
Alex S - 16
Josh H - 15
Jarrett M - 12
Lee H - 12
Keith B - 11
Travis W - 10
Larry M - 10
Matt C - 5


40k: Poland beat us, USA back down to 10th place.

Final Round:

Fantasy: USA v Singapore
40k: USA v Serbia

Fantasy: A maximum score win vs Singapore leaves us in a totally respectable 8th place overall at the end. Germany takes #1 (for the first time? I think?) with Italy, Denmark and Poland predictably rounding out the top spots. Greece deserves special mention for coming in top 5.

40k: A tie vs Serbia lands us in 10th place overall. Germany takes #1 in 40k as well (first time a team has won both too, I think?).

Huge congrats to Germany in order!!!


* Looks like Jarrett owes somebody $50 as USA placed 2 spots lower than England! :lol:
