GetawhaleThanks Wade.

Asked first page but will the bar have hard liquor this time? Or just beer and wine?

Kind of. Officially just beer/wine at the moment. But there is a small possibility we will have full liquor license by then. If we don't we have a distributor of fermented spirits that we use. So we can make cocktails, they're just not as strong as traditional spirits and are around 25%-30% alcohol.

BilbertWhy does the ESA site say February 2?

Also, are the individual LAN passes going to be available for purchase at the venue or do we have to order them ahead of time?

Oops.

And you can purchase them at the venue, however it's first come first serve. So if they did all sell out online you may be in trouble at that point.

hi wade can the next one be during the summer or winter breaks? ty :D

Maybe. We'd certainly consider it. However has Maxi said we don't want to interfere with i-Series. And while we'd love to ensure it fell during school breaks, we do lots of events for lots of communities, all of which have similar constraints. But we do our best to accommodate and Rewind 2 does fall during Presidents Day which should make the Monday travel easier for most US attendees.

#84 Rewind II details revealed in News

I've been working on an official Hotel deal, but haven't been able to secure anything officially. However my recommendation is the Clarion Inn and Suites in Santa Ana. It's typically $85-$95 a night. We have booked rooms here in the past, and it's clean with good amenities.

I recommend this be the official unofficial hotel of Rewind 2.

Also want to say that 3 additional open team passes have been made available on our website!

tatuwahaThe action will center around a tournament featuring some of the top teams in the world. On Friday, the event will begin with an open qualifier, where 14 open teams will compete against each other to advance to the main event alongside the 4 to-be-announced invited teams.
is there a cap of 14 teams?

Yes there is, which is dictated by the number of PCs we have available as well as space and time.

lucrativeI really do think the tournament format needs to be revised. There are a lot of high caliber teams attending this LAN and a lot of people are going to be travelling very very far to potentially only play 2 games. It doesn’t seem like the smartest way to get everyone playing a lot of games and still have the exciting invite group at the end of it, not all of us are going to be wanting to just spectate the end of the LAN.

A really good idea brought up in the rewind discord by phelonwhat about just dropping open playoffs and doing groups + playoffs? or is that too time consuming? maybe have the 4 invited teams in a single group where all 4 teams move up, placement determines seeds 1-4
This way everyone could play a group stage and then most could play playoffs while leaving the originally invited teams intact. I think a lot of people would be more in favour of more guaranteed games considering the caliber, size and investment of time and money to attend.

Tournament format won't be changing. On top of that a lot of presumptions are being made on the first limited bit of information. Open teams will be guaranteed 7 matches.

uberchainWill this be the same location as last year in Santa Ana?

Haha, yes it will be. That would have been good to include, huh? We explored the upcoming Oakland location. But ultimately didn't want to wait any longer, and didn't want to announce/cancel if Oakland had complications.

Does anyone know if we'll have 144hz monitors this time?

Also what about the whole switching comps every match
https://twitter.com/ESA_Wade/status/922590688772083718

I can confirm there will be 144hz monitors for everyone. The open LAN will also have designated seats so there won't be PC switching. We are still ironing out the exact format. Expect details in that regard over the next few weeks.

reakoRequest for all of the unused footage and clips to be released.

Unfortunately we probably won't be able to do that as there is stuff from different interviews that we were asked not to release.
