Ewan McNay

Ewan McNay vaulted over both James Pei and Sceadeau D’Tela to score annual metagaming honors for the first time in earning the 2015 Consul award. Stripping away email and Pre-Con laurels left McNay in the lead as all of his 120 laurel total was earned during WBC week wih a triple win in Ingenius, Britannia and Robo Rally.

The movement of WBC to a full nine-day format in 2016 will remove the concept of Pre-Cons and, thus, make email tournaments the sole difference between Caesar and Consul honors in the future.

The Mighty Finn, Riku Riekkinen, finished second with 112 laurels—eight behind McNay. Three runner-up finishes in 1989, Russian Railroads and Twilight Struggle cost him the title, as a victory in any of them would have made him Consul. Sceadeau D’Tela was third—11 laurels behind—done in by the loss of his Pre-Con laurels for a second in Through the Ages.

Caesar James Pei was sixth, 18 laurels off the pace and four behind relative newcomers Max DuBoff and Ryan Romanik, who tied for fourth. Completing the Top Ten were Wade Campbell, Matt Calkins, triple winner Ricky Boyes, and Duncan McGregor. All but Calkins were WBC newcomers of varying degrees.
