World Team Carcassonne Online Championship
« on: April 30, 2020, 07:05:56 AM »
This looks very interesting to me so thought I'd share it here in case anyone else wants to get involved...


"In recent weeks, different Catalan players have had the opportunity to play online against a team of the best Japanese players in Carcassonne. The experience has been so enriching that Carcassonne.cat has thought of encouraging this type of confrontation that began the Japanese team a few months ago.

And what better way to do it than in a global format and online, given the current context generated by Covid 19. Thus, although the individual world championship held every year in Essen has been canceled , we are in a good time to launch a new game mode that in the future can become a classic and official event, the World Team Carcassonne Online Championship.

In this first edition of the World Team Carcassonne Online Championship will be able to participate those countries or regions in which the game has been published in its official language presenting a single team. Players of these teams must have or create a profile on the online platform www.boardgamearena.com, where the competition will take place.

From Carcassonne.cat we want the largest possible number of teams to participate in this championship, for this reason we will contact international players. At the same time, we leave our contact email for those teams that we can not reach and also want to participate in the championship: carcassonnecat@gmail.com.

The championship will be divided into two phases. In the first there will be groups with different teams, where they will all play with each other. In the second, the semifinals and finals will be played between the best teams in each group. The number of rounds will depend on whether 2 or more groups are made."

I'm especially interested to hear from any other UK-based players who may be interested in this as I've started putting a team together.

I am aware but I have not been the creator and I am not organizing it either. It's been less than two days since it all started. The idea is to do an online world cup and you are contacting different countries that have edition of the game in your language. I don't know if you were contacted Danny.

 >:D I'm never one to turn down the opportunity to make a mean/ sarcastic remark...

Truth be told, I was hoping you'd be interested to join the team. I'll drop you the details through Slack.

Good to have you on board! :(y)

You say that, but two of the other team members have already won it three times between them! :o

Anyway, I'll drop you a PM about it either here or through Slack.
