Quake Champions is being done in the expo, I don't know if there are any formal events or activities for it. PUBG, on the other hand, will be ran by InsideJob, SebKow, and myself.

We are going to try and cover as many game modes as we have prizes, but FPP will probably be the focus since that's the competitive standard. Originally I had been working on a more normal tournament format but since there's not going to be a cash prize what we have to give away will be a bunch of hardware. Instead of doing 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place prizes which could require up to 16 prizes with 4 duplicates of each we'll probably just run standalone mini-tournaments where we only give a prize to the team or solo who won. That way we don't have to worry about having a mixed bag of prizes nor do we have to worry about making the format super official.

The target is just shy of 400 but a series of delays meant the announcement was quite late. Ticket prices were slashed to basically nothing to try and attract people as quickly as possible. There definitely has been a lack of interest from the public at large this time around, but I would say it would largely be because there was no real promotional strategy beyond the announcement. I'm not seeing any retweets or coverage from any media outlets beyond us and Media XP so I don't even know if any partners will be attending. There are supposed to be some Twitch personalities attending as well but I haven't seen any co-promotions coming out from them. I hope more than anybody that we at least hit 100 ticket sales soon but this is by far the slowest ticket sales rate we've ever had.

Even within AMD there hasn't been any buzz... I blogged internally, but my reach isn't very big here yet. Only 74 views.
