Thread Starter 

It's official! The Overclock.net live event in Toronto is on!

 

Date: Saturday, June 30th, 2012

Location: AirShip 37 - 37 PARLIAMENT STREET STUDIO 2 | TORONTO, ON, CANADA, M5A 2Y2 (Street View Link) (Map Link)

Location Instructions: The venue is located down the alley - it's behind Urban Dog

Time: 10am - 2am

Cost: $20 to reserve your space. This is not refundable. Please only reserve if you are actually going to come.

Website: Coming soon at GrandChampion.com

Contest: Win a trip to the event! http://www.overclock.net/t/1228177/win-a-trip-to-the-overclock-net-grand-champion-series-in-toronto

 

What are we doing at this event?

  • Compete with and learn from the pros
  • Half of the venue will be dedicated to a LAN ($5,000 in prizes)
  • Half of the venue will be dedicated to Ln2 Benchmarking ($5,000 in prizes)

 

 

LAN Structure

 

 

Quote:
Ladders for both CS:S and TF2 will be double elimination. CS:S will be 5v5 teams, TF2 will be 6v6. Standard settings for both, and standard class limits for TF2. The tournament play will be PUG (pick up game) style, allowing people to play with friends if they'd like to (but making it easy for people who don't know people already to get onto a team).

Additionally, there will be individual challenges throughout the day (like CS:S Gungame, prizes for top scorers in LAN pub matches, prizes for most domination, killing sprees, etc) with their own prizing.

We're still working on the possibility of building SC2 or LoL in to the ladder, if we can secure the beefier internet connection required to make that possible.

Public servers for these games will be running on-LAN all day, and there will be downtime in which tournament competitors can play other games, watch benchmarking, etc. We're expecting plenty of Minecraft to be played, as well as BF3, L4D2, UT:2004, and other popular titles. 
 

Prizing info:

TF2 Team Prizes - Divide 6 ways
1st $1200
2nd $600
3rd $300

CS:S Team Prizes - Divide 5 ways
1st $1000
2nd $500
3rd $250

$1150 in individual, challenge, and participation prizes

An additional $1000 would be allocated for prizes for LoL or SC2 if we're able to make those happen.

Great question!

 

It's tough. We can only comfortably fit so many people into the venue. Depending on the number of people who confirm, I am sure we could let them in at no cost. I will let you know based on the numbers! It's not our intention to charge people for this, it's just to make sure we have the proper numbers for the event.

Just to add to what admin already mentioned, we will need members to join and form committees to get all the LAN and Benching details worked out smile.gif

Keep your eyes peeled wink.gif
