Insomnia67 cancelled

Player1 Events has announced over Twitter that the upcoming iteration of the Insomnia Gaming Festival will not be going forward this following August, due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic. Essentials.tf were expected to organize the annual TF2 tournament at Insomnia67 in Birmingham.

The cancellation follows in line with other cancellations or delays of TF2 LANs this year, including Copenhagen Games 2020, the RGL Season 2 Playoffs, the LAN Downunder 2020 and RGB LAN V.

While previous LANs were cancelled over the initial outbreak of the virus, uncertainty about the coronavirus still looms, with major esports organizers like ESL and DreamHack holding off LAN events until next year. As such, 2020 will be the first year without a major TF2 LAN event.

Essentials are already looking into running an online tournament in place of i67 this year.
We are currently awaiting details from Insomnia/Player1 about potential sponsorship of it if at all possible. Stay tuned for more info soon about the setup!

can we just agree to take the political arguments to dms? if you're going to argue about covid-19 don't do it on a forum board for a 13 year old game.

Obviously Covid is a serious issue regardless, but atleast try to be numerically accurate.

Death rate of corona is literally nearly identical to flu except for age 65+ (2.7% death rate), and massive spike at 85+ for a 10% death rate at the highest. Source CDC. Coronavirus is nearly harmless for a gamer lan.. If you take care of your 85 year old grandparents just don't go.
