ETC 2012

It seems I'll be going to the European Team Challenge this year. I was a bit skeptical at first (they asked me months ago), but I promised to think about it, and I've decided to go. It's going to be my first international tournament, but the team has agreed that finishing last is acceptable, and that we should all bring socks and the faction model we believe capable of inflicting the most physical harm to an opponent.

I don't think we will be finishing last, but I didn't want to join a team that actually cared about doing well, since things can sour between players when expectations differ. I also wanted to be able to play like I do at "home", and give my opponents the benefit of the doubt without disappointing my own team in the process.

That was my main concern, since two of the other players ranked above me in the Danish Masters, but having been reassured that training and winning is entirely optional, I've decided to go.

  1. Glad to hear that you will be going! It's gonna be a blast.

    I like that the common trait between the team's lists is "the model best suited for sock-jacking" :D
