Post Scriptum: Yes, technically it’s not an EC qualifier, because the EC 2017 in Berlin will be an open tournament, but traditions .. vampires have ’em.
The VTES European Championship 2017 which will take place from March to 11 to 14 May, 2017 during the World of Darkness convention in Berlin, Germany. On this occasion, the attendees of the convention will receive one Anthology Set, consisting of 100 cards, which be exclusive to the event. They will also have the opportunity to pre-order & purchase more copies of the set via the webshop of the WoD convention for 20 EUR. The sets then will be paid and received on-site in May; the pre-order period ends on March 3rd, 2017.
The sets consists of a number of (rather sought-after) reprinted library cards as well as prints of crypt & library cards from PDF-expansions and a few new crypt cards. The post lists the cards from the PDF expansions not as reprints, which is technically correct, but on the other hand they are not really new cards either.
You can read the full post for yourself on the WoD convention website, which also has some artwork previews.
