Team Belgium (represented by Emiliano Imeroni) won this tournament. Unfortunately I lost my notes of the results of two finals results, so I have to reacquire most the information.
Congratulations to both Alain and team Belgium for winning the final rounds of tournament of the European VTES Championship 2017 respectively.
Since this year I will attend this year’s VTES European Championship in Berlin, Germany (after I missed the last two for various reasons), I will put a blog with news and information on the EC 2017.
The blog will mostly contain tournament information and (hopefully) also the occasional marginal note on something interesting I have seen or noticed.
Most interesting news today, as there’s gonna be a special VTES card set as part of the VTES European Championship 2017, which will take place during the WoD Berlin convention. But read for yourself …
