EDIT: Official thread is now live! http://www.overclock.net/t/1228171/overclock-net-grand-champion-series-toronto-june-30th-2012-10-000-prizing
Overclock.net is looking to throw a large event this year in Canada. Whether you game or benchmark, we want to have something there for you.
This will not be your normal event. We would be holding it at a very cool downtown Toronto venue.
- Cost would be free to come. You have to bring your own gear.
- We are thinking of having it on either June 30th (Saturday) or July 1st (Sunday).
- Doors would most likely open at 10am and the event would run through to 2am.
- All ages (but alcohol would be served to those who are legal drinking age)
- Event would be livecast
- Prizes would be available ($10,000 we are thinking)
- Learn from pros / bench with pros
- Compete to be the King of the LAN
Please post in this thread if you would be interested in coming to such an event. We are really trying to figure out some numbers before we finalize things. We are ideally looking for 150 people :) We need some indication enough people can make the trip / will be around that weekend.
The goal is to have one of the best events the industry has seen in Toronto - then do these elsewhere around the world. Vegas would be on our future consideration list for sure ;)
If you are interested in coming - please let us know what you would be interested in doing.
Benching (we will have Ln2 there!) / Learning?
Poll added. Sorry about the typos. Can't seem to remove the poll or edit it right now!
Use HipMunk.com to get a sense of how much a flight would cost you. Fly into either YTZ or YYZ.
We are looking into group rates on hotels thanks to RussianJ. We should know more soon!
