I will be masterfully attending this event. Double Tree was a really nice place and here is hoping that the same location will bring the same level of competition as the Canada NATS from the '12 season.

No Canadian Video Game National Championships in 2013




The Pokémon Company International has just updated the page for the autumn regionals taking place this weekend with slight adjustments to the prizes which reveal that plans for a Canadian National Championship have been scrapped.

Travel awards and byes are awarded to the winning player and are awarded to the U.S. National Championships. A Canadian player is therefore eligible to win a travel award to the U.S. National Championships, as there is no Video Game Nationals in Canada in 2013.

Unfortunately the Ontario Regional is this weekend so if you had plans to just attend the Canadian National Championships next summer, you’re out of luck. This brings down the amount of Worlds Qualification events (including the LCQ) to 5 in 2013 instead of 10 in 2012 with Europe’s system also changing. The Canadian TCG National Championships will still be in Toronto as scheduled. The silver lining to this news is that we shouldn’t see a split in the playerbase when Nationals weekend rolls around. And hey, maybe we’ll get a few more invites this time too?

Signed in, hack checked, registered. Running a new team because I lent my brother my old team. Probably doomed.

Lost my first round to a sand team full of dragons. Bummer.

Damn, L-W-L. This new team is not strong enough!
