Part 2 of my tournament report from Riederich, the tournament that was held instead of the Realm Championship Season 5, has been put online now as well.
Read about the Draft as well as my top 8 match that marked the end of my success story this time: Suppe für den soul – Realm Champs tournament report part 2.
Last weekend, the Realm Championship Season 5 took place. Or at least it was supposed to; due to the licensing situation between Upper Deck and Blizzard, no official tournament could be held. Instead, the tournament organizer from Reutlingen, Matthias Jedele, took it into his own hands to run a tournament.
The “inofficial Realm Champs” attracted 53 players and pretty much all of the better German, Swiss and Austrian players showed up (well, OK, only 1 Austrian showed up). I was lucky enough to make it to the tops, but lost in the quarter finals.
You can read a lot more about the tournament in my tournament report that will be published as part of my weekly column (that’s taking a break from its break): Suppe für den soul – Realm Champs tournament report.
This article now finally concludes my tournament report from the Realm Championships. As you’re already aware of the deck I was playing, how the draft went and my ultimate result, this is now the story of how I advanced all the way to the finals. As always, I’ll point out my mistakes so we can all learn from them, but this time, I also threw in a few mistakes of my opponents.
I wanted to write a complete report from Wuppertal, therefore I not only wrote articles about the constructed portions of the event, but also the draft. If you’re interested in longer articles and in-depth draft features, this will be exactly what you’re looking for!
Last weekend, the Realm Championship Season 3 took place in Wuppertal. I was able to advance to the finals, but eventually lost there, just like I did in Amsterdam. However, Jonas, the winner – who by the way joined our team in the mean time as well -, was kind enough to offer me a prize split which I (foolishly rather) reluctantly accepted, so I’m better off than I was in Amsterdam. I tried to return the favor and he’ll now be able to use up 900 € of the 1500 € travel voucher while I’ll only use 600 € of it (although we agreed to a 50 / 50 split before).
As you can imagine, the tournament was lots of fun and I had a blast! Thanks to my great team, the Bootcamp LE (Leipzig), I could participate with quite a unique deck that was also featured in the coverage. However, I’ll still write some more lines about the developing process in my weekly column Suppe für den soul that will most likely be published this Thursday.
Additionally, Friday’s Schmutzige Picks will feature my draft in Wuppertal, providing you with a deeper insight on how I was able to make the cut for Top 8 (I went undefeated in the draft portion of the event). Once again, thanks go out to my team and all the cool people who cheered for me in Wuppertal, in the forums and on Twitter (speaking of which, you may find some more information about how the tournament went on my Twitter account).
Oh, one more thing: In case you’re interested in purchasing the PlayStation 3 Slim Edition or a Spectral Tiger Loot Code that I won, please let me know! I also got a Red Bearon Loot Code up for sale, so just get in contact with me.
Yesterday, the Realm Championship Season 3 final took place. We had a great winner with Patrick Binka who won this tournament series the third time in a row now! I provided live coverage on site and was able to provide a few good insights of what was going on. At least I hope so, but 18 articles in a 17 hour day is quite something, so give it a look.
