Well, it's happening. Both good and bad at the same time. Over the years Russia used to have a fairly strong but closed TF2 competitive scene. We don't usually attend international events because of how hard and expensive it is to travel to EU or United States. The first event of it's kind in ages with the previous one being Pixling LAN party back at 2012 covered by BlackoutTV.

I was not going to announce it out loud just yet, but since we got some coverage already, here it is.
And yes, the bad news are the fact that the LAN is taking place at August 26th, i63 finals. We're not expecting a lot of coverage in English, however there is a possibility of the event being covered by an English-speaking casting org.

Moscow LAN is sponsored by community enthusiasts, participants and Cyberspace Riviera - an esport arena that kindly provided us with all the equipment and a place to host the event for the entire day. The major part of the prize pool is also sponsored by m0rg, a fairly well-known semi-active prem sniper, Huge heads up to this guy.

We're hoping to bring some old farts back into the game at least for a brief period of time, so if you are interested in oldschool players fighting against 3000 elo mge players and cyka on stream - you are welcome to come and hang out on stream during iseries breaks.

Website (sadly, Russian only)
Russian stream - TBA
English stream - TBA

Starting @ 26.08 ~9:00 CEST

And just to make things clear - this was the only day we could have the entire arena available for the entire day. Go, i63!

Were the prizes given out in USD, or are those converted from the Ruble to the Dollar? If the latter, the exact ruble amount would be great :)

Moscow LAN AMA ITT

HiipFireany chance of the stvs getting uploaded?

LAN organizers/admins are currently trying to find as many STV-demos as possible. I'll try to keep you updated on this one.

Alfieshame this is around i63 time, I would have loved to come and visit Moscowmartenсайт очень красивый! жаль я не могу ехать :/
может быть следующий год?

I might just be overoptimistic on this one, but I think it's not impossible to make it a non-RU only LAN, providing that enough people are interested and that it's not just a one time thing.
