2012 Warhammer: Invasion The Card Game German National Champion
"A perfect strategy prevents you from making tactical mistakes.”
Who is Chris Ehmann?
Chris Ehmann began playing Warhammer: Invasion during the days of The Corruption Cycle but took an extended break before returning, more seriously, during The Bloodquest Cycle.
In His Own Words:
I have been a gamer since my dad bought me an Amiga 500 twenty years ago. During my teens, I became a tournament organizer for Warlord TCG, played a lot of Warhammer 40K and card games, and got deep into rules creation for pen & paper RPGs and classic board games. Gaming kept being the most important aspect of my life, so at one point, I decided to make my hobby my job and became a game designer at upjers. And I lived happily ever after.
How Does Chris Prepare for Tournaments?
Play. A LOT. The night before a major tournament, I usually do not sleep at all, thinking about all the possible outcomes of multiple match-ups and blindfishing.
On the 2012 German National Championship Finals:
The tournament format was very rough – only four rounds of Swiss with only four players making the cut to elimination play. When I was defeated by Torsten Krämer (aka Mallumo) in round two, I thought for a moment about quitting the tournament, but then I made some calculations and realized that I might make the top four if I won every single match afterward…and was really lucky. In round four, I only won two games to one, which gave me a final score of 7:3, so I was very lucky to get in the top four.
