VTES EC 2023 LCQ champion

(The VEKN is trying a new routine for official Vampire: The Eternal Struggle event reports. The reports will be published as separate articles on VEKN.net – only a short summary with a link to the full article will appear in the newsletter. In this way we lift some stress from the newsletter writing at the end of each month and get more room for other fun stuff in the newsletter. But still, please remember: If you organise a tournament of National Championship level or higher, it is important that you send in the requested event information to the newsletter editor. Do it at the same time that you upload The Archon!)

On Friday October 13, 221 players turned up for this years “Last Chance” tournament in sunny Barcelona, Spain. All the tournaments of the EC weekend took place at the excellent Centro cívico Casino de Hostafrancs close to Estació de Sants.

As qualification no longer is needed for the actual EC, the top five players from this tournament instead are automatically qualified for the Day 2 tournament played on Sunday the same weekend (ie, they can play some funny annoying durdle deck on Day 1!)

Largest deck category: “Bleed” (27 % of the decks, according to the self-classification)
Largest clan: Gangrel (9 % of the decks)
Largest nation: Of course Spain (38 %)
