Frequently Asked Questions (and answers)

Q: How will the 6v6 and Highlander tournaments be scheduled?
A: There will be 'blocks' of each gamemode; so if the day starts with 6v6 group stage the Highlander group stage games will not start until later. Each playoff stage is their own 'block' of games.

Q: Do I need to join a team after signing up on the Copenhagen Games website?
A: Yes, otherwise you can't book your LAN ticket. You can create or join a team created by your team leader.

Q: I want to play 6v6 and Highlander, but can only join 1 team after signing up?
A: The actual tournament sign-ups for teams will be announced later.

Q: I want to order pizza and bring my own bottle of coke to the venue, can I?
A: No, there is no outside food or beverages allowed in the new LAN venue, but with the new venue we will get proper food & drink stands with more reasonable pricing.

Q: Do I need to be at the venue on the Wednesday?
A: No. However it is recommended to set up your (rental) PC before 10AM on the Thursday!

Q: Where are the sleeping accommodations if they are not at the venue?
A: The sleeping halls will be close to the Copenhagen Central Station and will have shuttle buses going between them and the LAN venue around the clock.

Q: Can I sleep in a hostel/hotel/AirBnB somewhere else in Copenhagen and still use the shuttle buses?
A: Yes, how to access the buses will be announced later.

Q: I have more questions not in this FAQ, where do I ask them?
A: Here in this thread or on the Copenhagen Games TF2 Discord where you can also look for teams/players and coordinate travel and offer to share (info on) accommodation.

There is enough time allotted per match, with additional buffer before/after each game, as well as Heny and DCS running a tight ship admining both tournaments.

Starkiehow do you plan to avoid overlap between highlander and 6s

Only delays we had last year were from people showing up late for the first games on each day and from attacks on the network. Otherwise running the tournaments like this was not a problem.

I actually wasn't going to say anything, but please don't make this claim when both teams in the LBF had to stay for 16-18 hours and be back in 9 to play the rescheduled games. There were admittedly a lot of factors here: people showing up late, everything going to 3 maps, ddos, stream delays, player illness, CPG regulations, and uncertainty. There is only one thing you guys really have control over, and that's what schedule is planned.

Why not put 6's in the morning and highlander in the evening in big blocks (or the other way around, whatever suits you best) so that we can have some confidence that there's an attempt being made to avoid this happening again. I have a lot of faith in this event and I openly promote it, you know I love you guys, but I don't appreciate this attitude that nothing went wrong.

I apologise for the strong language.

edit: what i mean by big blocks is, no one has to come back 2 hours after groups to then start playoffs. just one. big. block.
