Generally I'd say we don't tend to measure ourselves by the standard at which we play a pretty inconsequential board game.We see scarcely any english player in European events. There must be a reason.
Almost all the people I know who attend ASL tournaments attend for fun. I can think of about three or four exceptions on the entire UK scene.
If you accept that most UK players attend tournaments for the 'craic' then what can you sell us about European tournaments that would have us reaching for our wallets to traipse across Europe for?
I could attend European tournaments as I have a motorhome and therefore free and ready accommodation...frankly I am too busy travelling around the UK on my spare time to go playing wargames in France, Holland, Germany, wherever. I may attend Grenadier one year as I like Germany and holiday there each year. But I can't see myself attending any other tournaments. Not because of my level of play...I'd give pretty much anyone a game on my day....but for the reasons already mentioned.
Honestly...I think you over-estimate the importance of ASL in peoples lives.
