dashnerBe grateful that anybody is spending the thousands out of pocket to come from Europe to help out with this event.

This. We're incredibly fortunate to have such great casters who are willing to come out (on their own dime) and make this event so special. None of our casters are local to SoCal, even Slin will have to make a trek down from SF. We're very, very lucky to have each and every one of these guys.

My friend and I started working on some ingame sticker prototypes, because I haven't seen anyone else make them.
Our goal is to do a sticker for every confirmed player and a additional sticker for each team (Yes, we did fake the signatures) .

We want as much feedback as possible before we start doing the next ones!

Doing a bunch and sending them to Valve would be hype

edit: would be cool to get authentic autographs from the players too, if you aren't already

Hey guys, I'm DAN2Y's friend and due to the fact that he went to sleep, I quickly created a tftv account to respond to your feedback. Thanks for the nice feedback so far.
Getting the autographs is currently our main problem. We aren't quite sure how we should get them, but we'll do our best and keep you updated!

in csgo, part of the sticker/signature money goes to the organisations and players right?
Because if valve takes everything or wouldn't do fair distribution of the earnings, i would have no reason to continue making the stickers.

Streep36Dont think Crowns are still going though. So making autographs for them is a bit silly

Crowns is one of a few teams who have high resolution pictures of their logo availabe, that's why I chose them for the prototype.

Another thing: does 20b have an official logo?

Their comp.tf page should have it. Fairly certain them and NRG going is just a meme, though.

I think waiting for teams to confirm that they are going and then making stickers would be the best thing to do. In the meantime you can contact valve and see if they are up to it (I doubt it but its possible)

those look amazing. Please make me one too yao! Great effort, I hope they can be implemented in some way.

(of course include the other casters/production people too. They've done it in DOTA with signatures, I think it'd be a nice pat on the back for people's volunteer effort but nbd. You're putting in the effort and we should be below the teams/players on the todo list for sure. wherever it goes, thanks for doing what you've done)

Caster/production and coach signatures are two I really wish CSGO had.

Gonna post this here instead of my twitter as I don't think many of you yanks follow me. If anyone has a floor I can sleep on in Santa Ana for a week during the event I will be forever grateful and cast literally anything you send me in pure 4k 120fps. It would help me out massively as I'm struggling to afford a hotel on top of flights + food and drink/ uber rides / general spending.

Just drop me a message on here or on steam if you're up for looking after a poor young lad in need of a NA sugar daddy (or mummy?)

Esports Arena Rewind

Hello fellow kids,
There have been some recent changes to the event I wanted to update you guys on. Firstly, I wanted to let you know that I’ve been hired at Esports Arena as Jr. Esports Project Manager, Events. As part of my new role, I’ll be taking on Rewind as my first project.

That being said, we have some SPICY new info for you guys to sink your teeth into:

-Sponsorship
Once again Marketplace has proven to be the most faithful sponsor of the TF2 competitive community by raising the stakes! The total invite prizepool now sits at $7,000.00, but we expect it to rise again in the coming weeks, so stay tuned

-Signups
Team signups for all tournaments will open next week, keep an eye out for an official announcement from Esports Arena! If you purchase a tournament entry, you will also receive LAN access for the weekend, including Friday the 20th (PCs are first come).

-Crowdfunding
“But where do I put my money??” you may be asking yourselves. You can support the event by purchasing Esports Arena offerings (like a studio tour, for example), or donating money directly to the prize pool, all through YouStake.com. YouStake has offered to donate $1 to the prize pool of the specific campaign for each donation/offering purchased under that campaign. This will go live with registration. There are test pages active right now, those are not live.

-Hotel
We’ve decided to make our home for the weekend at La Quinta Inn Santa Ana! They offer a free airport shuttle from SNA John Wayne Airport (ask hotel for details).

Hotel Address:
1515 South Coast Drive / phone: (714) 957-5841

Below is a summary of your group:
Between: 1/19/2017
And: 1/23/2017
· Guest Room Rates:
Standard Room with 2 Double Beds: $85 per room, per night, plus tax

Reservation method: Please contact the Group Desk at 1-800-642-4239, Option 1 and ask for the special rate for “Rewind”. Reservations must be made no later than 12/29/2016 in order to guarantee this special rate.

Notes:
-Coaching rules have been determined: no coaching plugin will be used, coaches will only be permitted to consult with teams during pauses or between rounds.
-Interested in the Open tournament? Good! All donations to the tournament campaign through YouStake are being cut 20% to the Open prizepool, and the Open finals are being streamed on stage.
-Invited teams: you do not need to register, your entry fee is waived. Please see b4nny if you have any questions.
-Streaming is allowed and encouraged while the event stream is not live (before/after stream hours, and Friday).
-There are gas stations and fast food walking distance from the hotel, as well as a bar and grill that’s open pretty late: http://www.spoonsoc.com/. Downtown Santa Ana (DTSA) where the Arena is located, is home to some of the most hipster spots you’ll find in Orange County, if you swing that way: http://www.downtown-santaana.com/

As always if you guys have any questions not covered here, please feel free to add me on steam or e-mail me at s.emery@esportsarena.com.
