Hello everyone! We are pleased to finally be able to announce the program for Warmachine & Hordes at NM2017! For the first time, Warmachine & Hordes at NM will be a multi-tournament event and we are eager to try this new format.

What does a multi-tournament format mean? For those of you who are used to going to cons this is basically nothing new. For those of you who are not, it means that we are running multiple tournaments in parallell. Due to the nature of how we crown a winner in this game according to Steamroller, you'll often see players losing motivation and dropping if they get off to a bad start. As such we have a tournament starting after the first and after the second round of NM. Hopefully this also enables others who might not be able to attend the entire weekend to at least participate in some of the events.

Furthermore this format allows us to offer you a variety of formats, ranging from the classic Masters format for the title of Norwegian Master to the more casual Spell Draft. Perhaps a team tournament is what you're looking for? We've tried to have something for everyone here!
As a final note, the schedule is not 100% yet. Expect Saturday to be a very long day if you want to play all games and Sunday to last for roughly 8 hours.

Okay, onto the format!

Day 1:

Norwegian Masters. 5 rounds, 64 spots. If there are 2 undefeated players after 5 rounds, there will be a finale. 4 Invitational spots. Masters rules (includes ADR).
Champions. 4 rounds, 32 spots. Starts after NM Round 1 is over. If there are 2 undefeated players after 4 rounds we will do our best to hold a finale. 2 Invitational spots. Champions format.
Steamroller 1. 3 rounds, 16 spots. Starts after NM Round 2 is over. If there are 2 undefeated players after 3 rounds we will do our best to hold a finale. 2 Invitational spots. Normal Steamroller format, no ADR.

Day 2:

Norwegian Invitationals. The top 4 players from Norwegian Masters, the top 2 players from Champions and the top 2 players from Steamroller 1 are eligibible to play here. If they decline to do so the spots go to the next player from the respective tournaments. 3 rounds. Normal Steamroller format, no ADR.
Steamroller 2 ADR. 3 rounds, 16 spots.
Spell Draft. 3 rounds, 16 spots.
Team Tournament. 3 rounds, 3 members per team. Max. 8 teams. 1 list per player.

As the astute reader will note, we cannot guarantee a winner by being the sole undefeated player in some of these events. This is due to schedule restrictions and we hope you can understand this and that it will not be an issue for you.
