What is the closest airport to the venue?
Philadelphia International Airport - PHL
What are the details on the hotel?
Use this link as TMG room block codes are placed within the links. If you plan on going, book your hotel ASAP so it doesn't become an issue later.
Can I play in other tournaments?
You may only play in other tournaments if and when you’ve been eliminated from the TF2 tournament. Keep in mind that the TF2 tournament is only on Saturday, so anything you wish to do on Friday is up to you. There are no tournaments on Sunday.
How can I sit with my team or other friends?
There will be a section for each charity (so a red section, green section, and blue section). Make sure your team picks the same color/charity if you want to sit near each other. If you don't care about sitting next to each other, then it doesn't matter what color/charity everyone chooses. There will be no assigned seating within each section.
Will there be rental computers and monitors?
RENTALS ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE.
Rentals will be $80 + taxes and fees (so expect around $90) i7-9700K CPU
16GB DDR4 2666MHz RAM
RTX 2070 GPU
240hz BenQ Monitor
It will be listed as an add-on for your BYOC ticket on the TMG site, and you can add it later if you already got a ticket. June 6th cut-off for orders, none available to rent on-site. It's PC/monitor ONLY so you will have to bring: keyboard, mouse, headset, and 25ft ethernet cable. (Power and display cables are included) Rentals are available now! There isn't really a limited number of rentals by any means, so don't worry about missing your chance to get one. Our supplier has quite a few, but they will only send us what we order, so again, you must add it on to your ticket by June 6th. If you or anyone that has already purchased their ticket and needs to add on the rental, they are going to have to follow the following steps: Log into growtix.com
Once logged in - on the right hand side click the green "view all orders" button
Your TMG ticket should show up, on the right of your ticket click the green "order additional tickets" button
Then you can add on your computer rental there.
