Hi all, the finals are fast approaching
Most of us cannot bring certain items on the flights such as MAPP gas tanks, Electronic contact cleaner spray, Liquid electrical tape, acetone. Do you guys think we can find that near the caseking location in Berlin fairly easily?
If anyone happens to have some extra of these items or could buy me some in advance to the competition I could send PayPal funds.

Is there a nearby hostel or hotel you guys recommend? or this is already booked for us and we pay once there?

Ah the classic mistake dude, you asked to many questions at once. Maybe ask the other questions again.. one at a time

Pieter could we start a Facebook group for the finalists to get last min details ?

Prizes are a big surprise, I would have thought prize money had been budgeted from the start of this series... especially considering that qualifiers had prize money...
I regret spending time and cash on the wild card qualifier. Dancop really was the winner in that one, he won first prize in the finals without having to go to Berlin. Wild card was nothing but a scam. And we even had to pay for it. When did hwbot know or suspect there would be no sponsoring for the finals?

My thoughts of the finals: an unfair competition where the skill of the competitors vary alot and the prizes for the grand final are not so grand at all. To me it is more of a marketing ploy than a "world championship". The sad thing is that it is not even a marketing ploy since no one is even willing to sponsor it. There are two yearly competitions worthy of calling themselves "world championship", and hwbot world tour is not one of them...

As far as I know hwbot is planning on another world tour next year? If so I would like to see two major changes or you can scrap it:
- Find a way to make sure level of competition is strong in every qualifier.
- Finalize the grand final prize before the first qualifier. And finalize qualifier prizes well in time for each qualifier.

What an event !

That was really great to see so many faces and a pleasure to do the stream.

Good discussion with Alva on the state of OC, funny talk with Christian, glad to see Paolo catching up on English even that is too bad he ended up 4th while being all on its way to the gold final ! DrWeez rocked it and along with Alva never stopped smiling, keep smiling guys !

The new guy bene and DSLR came in like a bang shaking the qualifier ranking, that spiced up the day !

Marc0053, you deserve that title of winner of the world championship I am sure the the guys at OCN are proud of.you, the past 4month have been intense in terms of research and sharing information. Congrats !

See you in 2017 !
