Off-Meta Check - The London Legion Online Tournament

Over here in the UK we have been advised that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we should all be sitting at home in self isolation. Normally this means that most L5R events planned for the next few weeks have been cancelled so at the London Legion we thought that it might be a good idea to run an event played on Jigoku over one day in real time. This is very much a test event for the format with the goal to run another in a couple of weeks time to fill the hole until OP events start up again hopefully sometime in April.

That being said, we had a fair few players sign up and show interest so in the spirit of the good work going on over at Imperial Advisor I thought that I would do a 'Meta Check' (as far as that term can apply to a tournament run and played by janklords such as us) as a bit of fun to fill the gap left until the end of the Dominion Cycle and I can get back to my regular writing schedule.

Whilst there are already Jigoku leagues that are run and organised, I don't know of any regular one-day events that operate. A big shout out to our TO Finbarr (Steelfur) who has tirelessly been releasing videos walking through how the event works and also a follow up on actually playing on Jigoku (because there are a fair few people who mainly play face to face) over on his channel HERE. He was the driving force behind the event in the first place and is an active member of the community so please check out his work and give your support.

You can also find streams of some of the games over on Finbarr's Twitch and Youtube channels  HERE and HERE.

Also a re-stream in Spanish HERE.

As is the norm nowadays, the tournament was tracked on The Lotus Pavillion HERE.
