    U.K nationals and team nationals 2014 official(ish) thread

    Hi everyone, it's that time of year again, the excitement is building, the days of glory will soon be upon us so without further blathering I'd like to announce....

    U.K nationals and Team nationals 2014!

    To be held at Patriot Games Sheffield on the weekend of 4/5th October 2014. This is a week earlier than I usually run them but Patriot is hosting L5R worlds on our usual weekend so had to re-arrange.

    Saturday 4th October: standard nationals
    6 rounds swiss with a top 8/16 cut depending on attendance.
    sign in will start at 11.00 with round 1 starting at 12.00.

    Sunday 5th October: Team nationals
    4/6 rounds swiss with a top 2/4 cut depending on attendance
    sign in will start at 11.00 with round 1 starting at 12.00.

    Entry will hopefully be between 5-10 as in previous years but depending on how many people we get we may have to relocate to a different venue based on the fact we almost filled the place last year

    As usual there will be plenty of shiny things to win and lots of cool stuff just for taking part so there's no reason not to come down and try and de-throne our reigning UK (canadian) champion Garett Brett.

    If you have any questions don't hesitate to message me on here or on facebook on the ufs uk players group.

    Will patriots own former champions be able to reclaim past glories or will the south rise again after winning teams last year? who knows. all I know is it's a matter of national pride that we have a UK champion this year from the UK ;D

    Wow, a lot of pressure on me to attend and give you guys a good fight

    I really appreciate the huge lead-time announcement! Barring significant conflicts or financial disaster I will be there.

    If the date changes for any reason please let me know sooner than later, as I will probably try to make this a personal holiday (travel some of Europe) + UFS thing if at all possible rather than a whirlwind stop and go.

    Not a problem chief, I always make an announcement well ahead of time to give people plenty of time to prepare will inform you if anything changes but everything seems to be about right at the moment.

    Plenty of time to plan indeed! May not be able to book things immediately, but good to know things are confirmed!

    What sets will be legal? Megaman doesn't look to have hit our shores yet and may not do so in time.

    Legal sets will be: Red Horizon, Red Horizon: Tides of Vengeance, King of Fighters XIII, Ruler of Time, Neo Max, Mega Man tins, and Dark Stalkers tins (as long as they arrive in time).

    Also the Mega Man tins arrived back in June; however they sold out within days of them arriving and it was the last of the stock that Jasco had so it is a case of waiting for the reprint of the tin to arrive.
