Some good news and some bad news

Postby BloodyIron » Tue Feb 23, 2010 11:50 am

As the event is approaching even closer we are working on finalizing all the elements. As such we have calculated the estimated maximum times of the HoN and TF2 tournaments. While the HoN tournament could potentially result in a drastically longer tournament than TF2 (at maximum numbers) we are seeing more interest in TF2. As such we will be having the TF2 tournament on Saturday at 2pm, and the HoN tournament on Sunday at noon. If interest in HoN explodes, we will have the first half of the HoN tournament on Saturday (TBD, but after TF2) and the second half on Sunday, likely to continue at noon.

So, to re-iterate

TF2: Saturday 2pm
HoN: Sunday Noon (unless interest explodes)

As for the rules of each tournament, we are finalizing the server configurations for TF2, but they are likely to follow near ESL's 3v3 arena rules. However we are still sticking with the class limits of 1 per class, including 1 medic and 1 engineer (just to clarify). We will post further details when they have been finalized. We are also exploring the possibility of 1000fps servers for the TF2 tournament.

In terms of HoN, it is currently Banning Draft, but we are exploring a slight alternative to that. As for limitations, we are looking further into such, but as S2 has been diligently implementing built-in methods to prevent over-powered (as in un-counterable) strategies and as such we do not yet see a reason to limit items/heroes/strategies beyond what is built into the game, and beyond exploits. For those who might have missed it, it will be round-robin if 5 teams or less enter, and double elimination for 6 or more.


Onto the bad news. We regret to inform you, the public, that we are dropping BAWLS as a sponsor. This comes with great regret as BAWLS has been one of our longest sponsors. The reasoning behind this is due to BAWLS supposed internal restructuring with the possibility of sale of the company. As a result we have been unable to maintain contact and supply with the company. Should BAWLS supply return to Canada, we will seriously consider revisiting sponsorship with this fantastic beverage company. Sorry guys, as such we have no BAWLS for sale for this coming event.


Since the event is coming up real fast, we will be closing prepay this coming Saturday (February 27th) at 10pm. If you are sure you are coming we recommend you prepay while you still have the opportunity. If you or someone you know who is trying to prepay and is having technical difficulties with our site or paypal we advise you contact us immediately to correct any issues, best to post on the forums. It is also worth noting that our TF2 tournament is only 3 pledges away from hitting the 15 person threshold for the $150 prize pot, so don't forget to pledge for the tournaments you want to enter.

Hope to see you there!
