    See you there Firestorm. :)

    I'm glad I can still get there easily by train but seriously why Surrey. ;-;

    Why can't November 13th be now so we can talk about it? Not looking forward to team testing all over again thought.

    Yes. Regionals are swiss now. No buddy rule. It'll work like it does at Nationals. Also the same as the Battle Roads we went to.

    Wow, why did I even ask about buddy rule? I was just explaining the other day to someone that pairings are via computer. Can you tell I'm a little tired?

    I realized it's at Battle Roads, but I'm wondering where we will fit. I supposed they'll just put it out in the mall? I might go to City Champs later this month so maybe I'll ask about it.

    Sweet! The Surrey Regional is at the Mall! I live only like 10 minutes from there! You guys think that the tournament will be in the open, or will it be some separate room?

    It'll be in the large space between Future Shop and Winners.

    Every Regional gives 5 Play! points just for participating, and 10 are required to get into Nationals. Therefore, every player must either play in two Regionals (which means attending both a Novermber Regional and an April Regional), OR they must play the TCG to get more Play! points.

    Basically, anyone planning to go to Nationals MUST go to a Regional this weekend, or else play in TCG tournaments just to get Play! points.


    EDIT: Nevermind

    The play points restriction is only for TCG, not VGC.

    Oh alright, thank you very much. When I first read it, I was taken aback. That's good to hear :)

    Ya but the fact that they are including the points into the VGC just means that this will be something that's probably going to happen next year.

    I never mentioned anything about the future, I was just pointing out that there is no restriction on the amount of Play Points needed for Nationals. We'll obviously see them come into effect in the future, but they are useless this year.

    I'm going to assume that since Atlanta hasn't been announced by now, it isn't happening.

    It is probably still happening. Only 13 of the 15 Regionals have been announced.

    The Southeast Regional will likely be happening in The Classic Center in Athens, GA. That's all of them folks!

    I would have to fly to get to any of these. Would be a shorter trip to Athens, GA though. ;)

    Not really. Even though the location has moved both regionals still count as "Southeast". They just aren't doing it in the same place twice.
