Finnish Nationals 2022
Espoo, Finland
3R + F
45 players
winner: Teemu Sainomaa

After last year's dramatic surge in participation numbers, we managed to retain a similar level, despite a bunch of last minute cancelations. For myself, it was the fifth time hosting the nationals, so the routine is getting pretty well rehearsed. As seems to be a common theme in Finnish large events, we had a tight schedule dictated by the venue's limitations, but everything went well, as usual

The hit meme of the tournament was the amount of the unnamed decks. At least six of them were spotted, which means that almost every seventh deck featured our dear old shady beast. I was naturally a part of the problem myself, but I regret nothing, even though I may be personally partly to blame for the phenomenon. And even though there was another unnamed in two of my three tables...

The amount of combat decks seemed very low by Finnish standards, and I didn't come across that many walls, either. This was reflected in the final that included two heavy bleed decks, one bleed/vote, one bleed/breed, and one wall.

The final table:
  1. Antti Penttilä (Palla Grande breed) 1 VP
  2. Jyri Puhakka (the unnamed bleed)
  3. Teemu Sainomaa (Gangrel barons wall) 3 VP
  4. Juha Nyholm (Art of Memory bleed) 1 VP
  5. Esa-Matti Smolander (Stanislava)
Congratulations to the winner who will post his list and possible comments here shortly!

What makes me happy is that we also got a table or so of tournament neonates attend the nationals! Yay for the new blood! Plus we had some of the foreign types from the Western Wonderland aka Svearike grace us with their presence -compatriots,it is great to see you!

Congrats to Teemu for the win, thanks to Tero and Tommi for running the tournament, and Niko, Noora and everyone else who participated in the gift.

I was totally flabbergasted so I need to quote something appropriate here:

"Tonight's our night, we'll never go it alone
Tonight's our night, we're never going home
With the greatest friends I swear I've known

-Cancer Bats, "Deathsmarch"
