The Guild Ball Community Project has two important announcements to make today. Without further ado...
So I'm Dominic Westerland. I've been tabletop gaming for about twenty years at this point (my first White Dwarf was the first Lord of the Rings issue). I played Malifaux competitively for a number of years (including creating the Breachside Broadcast podcast for Wyrd Games) before coming to Guild Ball around the start of Season 3. I have a professional background in community radio and the public sector. I also worked for Steamforged for a spell, with my favourite projects being the Shepherds Guild and two live-streamed Guild Ball tourneys.
I was initially somewhat reserved about joining GBCP for ... well, obvious reasons. But then I had a thought that spurred me to join both the Rules and Creative Committees and its the same notion that will drive my work following me joining the Steering Committee. Guild Ball, without a doubt, is the tightest and best tabletop game I have ever played. The community is without a doubt, the best gaming community I have been a part of. Both the game and the community deserve better than the official "end" that they got. By joining the Steering Committee, I hope to contribute even just a small amount of what both this game and this community has given me.
The qualifying events for the 2021 Digital World Championship start tomorrow! In preparation for this, we have amended the Organized Play Document with a section specifically for handling online gaming. Check out the latest version here.
We also have a few details to share about roster and game submission:
If you haven't already, you can still sign up! Registration for the qualifying events will be open through the end of the day today.
We hope you're all as excited to get back into the game as we are! To give you a little extra motivation for the qualifying events, all players with only one loss (or zero!) will be invited to the World Championship finals event!
