Special thanks to Dark Angel for designing the t-shirts and flying all the way from Texas USA to take part.  To the Swedish players for coming over and give some very strong competition.  Xipheas and crew for running the LaserQuest portion and getting games turned around in less than 3 minutes.  To the arena owners Terry @ LaserAce (Actual Reality) for all his hospitality and work he put in to equipment maintenance, and to Paul @ LaserZone Huddersfield (Zone/Quasar) for putting so much effort in to accomodating us with both systems.  Thanks also to everyone who put work in behind the scenes, getting games settings organised, teams signed up etc.

Thanks to everyone for coming!  I hope to see you all again at next year's event.



 
Tournament Details - 04 April 2008

 UK Armageddon 2008 will run from
Friday 15th August 2008 until Sunday 17th August 2008.

Teams are 8 players in size, with a maximum of 5 teams at the event.  Players unable to attend as a team will be allocated to a team.

The systems played are as follows: LaserForce (Peterborough), Adventure Sports Outdoor (Doncaster), MegaZone (Huddersfield), Quasar (Huddersfield), Actual Reality (Oldham), DarkLight (Bristol), LaserQuest (Bristol Longwell Green).

The event starts at 9am at the LaserForce arena in Peterborough on Friday 15th August, and ends at LaserQuest Longwell Green (Bristol) at 9:30pm Sunday 17th August 2008.

Entry fee per player is £115 if paid in full by the 8th June 2008, otherwise it is £125 due on the day.  The entry fee includes two nights in a hotel and all the lasertag, it does not include transportation this year.  For those unable to transport themselves or make other arrangements, a supplement of £35 can be paid for transport to be provided.

To secure a place at the event the entry fee, or a deposit of £60 must be paid.  The deadline for deposits is Tuesday 8th July 2008.  Deposits and entry fees are non-refundable, however you can transfer the secured place on the event to another person if you wish.

Please note the Friday is a busy schedule, running from 9am until around 12:30am.  Please try to get a good nights sleep before the event!

Hotels have been booked, with a focus on cost reduction.  The first night will be within 5 minutes walk of the venue, with everyone getting their own bed (room sizes vary).  The second night is a 15 minute drive from the venue, with 3 people per room, each room containing a double bed and sofa bed.  If you wish to have two per room then please let me know as soon as possible to ensure the correct number of rooms are available, the cost will be around £25 per room.  If you live near the locations we are staying at and wish to save the hotel cost please let me know and I'll advise you of the entry fee minus hotel room costs.

If you have a spare place in your car for the route you can sell this back to the event for £35. The event will only purchase the number of places it needs on a first offered first used basis. Please only offer spaces if you genuinely have them available as this could disrupt planning. The price is based on the cost of renting a minibus for the event, which will be used if insufficient spaces are available in cars.

You will get one practice game on each site, this may not be the full tournament format due to role-play on some systems. The outdoor games will be short to get a basic feel for the equipment.

If there are 5 teams you will get to play each team once on every system. If there are 4 teams then the games will either be extended in length and you will play each team once, or a change in colour/side will occur half way through depending on system turn-around and site.

Sides/colours will be randomly drawn. Order of play will be semi-random to provide for the fairest experience possible. For example with 5 teams, where one is an obvious home team on a system, the other 4 teams will have their first games against each other before any play the home team.

Please note that exact event details are subject to change. The core event will remain the same, and this site will be updated to reflect any alterations as quickly as possible should anything change.  Substantial changes are very unlikely at this stage.
