How likely would either of you be to travel to Brissy next Easter?

Looking to make a national tournament with amazing prizes but would love to have people from all states come and represent themselves and their state...

Canberra, and getting back into Battletech.

Played a bit today actually.



Regarding travelling to Brisbane, sure. I have family there.

When you say that, do you mean the forthcoming 2018 Easter or the 2019 one?

It would be 2019. Its too late to get one in this year as we are about to start playtesting formats.

But Im hoping to achieve a national comp that has great prizes and is represented by all the states.

Thanks for sharing Son of Kerenski.

Hopefully I can find some more Canberra locals to play with/against over the next year. If I do for some reason head to Brisbane, Sydney or Perth in the near future, I'll ping folks.

Youd be more than welcome to stay with me if you are ever up in Brissy. Especially if you come up for a tourney....

Is there anyone Sydney based? I've been keen as all hell to play for 20 years but I've never found anyone that knows or wants to learn how to play. I've devoured all the lore but never got an opportunity to give it a go.

I’m from Adelaide - my 3 brothers and I were BattleTech fanatics in the late 80s and early 90s - at times we still dabble.

Playing Succession Wars for a few days straight was not unusual (with our little sister being the 5th)

One brother lives in Brisbane - he’d probably attend and it’d be a good excuse for a visit (for me

Canberra reporting in.

Unfortunately, work and family are currently limiting the time I have available to play tabletop but hopefully that will change in the future. Interstate travel to play a tournament would be almost mission impossible as wife works weekends.

Incoming fire has the right of way.

The only thing more accurate than incoming enemy fire is incoming friendly fire.

Always remember that your weapon was built by the lowest bidder.

Tell your brother to go into The Magic Vault in Alderley next Sunday (27.5.18) as I will be playing Alpha Strike and can talk to him about playing some TW games as well.

Fellow BTech player based in Adelaide. I know of two others that play as well. All three of us have been meaning to continue on with our Campaign for far too long.

Good to know we aren't the only 3 playing in Adelaide. =)
