Pretty sure having a secondary small HL tournament with a very small prize or nothing at all could still be possible, similar to what got organized for i49 and i52.

I personally wouldn't plan on playing in it myself if it gets made but even having something like that organized for fun to be played on the non-group stage day(s) would seem doable on paper, assuming that the schedule would be similar from the past couple events where the main group stage had all matches played on Thursday.

We've considered organizing Highlander in some way at CG2020, but (for this event) we don't want to force people to pick which tournament they want to play in.

Perhaps when TF2 would actually proper Tier 1 and 2 teams to play for actual prizes and the Tier 3 and below teams would still keep the option to play Highlander. We'll see what 2020 brings and what we can do for 2021!

EquaLwhy was hl removed?

not enough people cared for it and I think it was like 2 guys that responded to a survey that they wouldn't go if hl wasn't offered

i get pissed and distraught over lans for two reasons, one there are no lans of any game close to me where i live, and two, tf2 lans have prize pools that are a maximum of $5k, and i have never seen a tf2 lan with a $10k prize pool yet. we need that kind of lan to happen. i know i cant do shit about it.

Sadly I can't fix your no. 1 concern, but as to no 2.: Copenhagen Games 2019 had a prize pool for 6v6 of 10,000 EUR(approx 11,000 USD) and HL of 2,000 EUR(approx 2,200 USD). We're aiming for Copenhagen Games 2020 to be at that level again.

gonna say the same thing to anyone I try to convince to come to LANs; if you don't live close, save up for travel if you can. In both the US and in Europe it can be shockingly cheap to actually get to an event if you look into it. For RGB4, I was planning on paying for THE BILLDOZER's flight coming into Philly from Houston because it was under 100 bucks. When I asked my ETF2L team about coming and meeting up at i65, they all said it was too expensive without looking at flights, which were all around 150 dollars or under.

Not everyone has stable income or the ability to get the time off of work/school to be able to attend events, and that's totally understandable; and sometimes LAN travel can become pretty expensive (all of the NA people who regularly attend iseries and copenhagen can definitely attest to this, as well as people who travel east>west coast or vice versa for NA LANs) and this still doesn't include LAN ticket and hotel/airbnb prices, but those often times can be helped as well via methods such as room sharing with teammates (this also is just a really good chance to bond with close online friends, recommended even past cost savings). I know I had been wanting to go to LAN for years before 2017 but didn't get the chance until RGB2 as a combo Christmas/birthday gift from my dad, and since then I've had a bit of my personal savings set up for LANs.

TL;DR - LAN can be less expensive than you'd expect if you haven't even actually looked at what prices for flights/busses/trains/etc. are, and just because LANs aren't local to you (in TF2 we don't really get that privilege due to the game's size) doesn't mean they aren't monetarily feasable.

Appologies for nerd essay, just this kind of attitude about LANs bugs me. If you want to go to LANs in your continent, it is not super difficult to make happen provided a bit of dedication.

Thank you both for the information. Should’ve watched the Copenhagen games then I guess. My bad! And also yeah it makes sense for that kind of conflict related to travel costs.

_KermitThe venue not being set in stone isn't that great, is there any public reason for announcing the tournament and stuff already if the venue isn't even confirmed?

For what it's worth, I've seen two posts on their official website that states that the venue will be Lokomotivværkstedet, the same as last year:
