Does seem a shame that the geographical distribution of Regionals is so clustered:
Really wish FFGOP (Evdesium/Asmodee OP or whatever) could be a bit more proactive in organising these venues and dates and balancing things. I know it is driven by which stores apply, but would it be super difficult for FFGOP to contact stores who’ve hosted in the past and stores who hosted a SC this year and ask them if they want to apply?
I know a lot of people will be disappointed at how few Regionals they can make, and how far they will have to travel to do so. I think I can get to 6 in total, but I’m going to clock up 2,000 miles of driving if I do all 6!
The announcement from new OP Coordinator at Asmodee:
the two most important factors considered when allocating the next set of events were the strength of the stores application in combination with their geographical location.
Must have been very light on applications then I guess?
4 I can reasonably make, and will probably actually get to two or three. Six months into the game that’s all I’m willing to commit.
