denkmark just announced that there would be no travel restrictions for vaccinated people coming into the country (no test or self-isolation required), still, with no words on the rentals people are probably holding off on taking time off work etc.

Hello beautiful people!

We sincerely apologize for the radio silence over the last weeks. Let me assure you the minds behind Copenhagen Games 2022 have been very busy behind the scenes!
We are happy to be able to tell you that we have reached a verbal agreement with hardware partners in order to provide enough rentals to accommodate 24 teams total!

The rentals include monitors and PCs!
We do not know the exact specs yet, but monitors should all be 240 Hz (24.5 inch, some a bit smaller) and the majority of PCs will have Intel Core i7-11700F and the others will have i5-8400 or similar. Rental packages will be priced around 200 € (that includes thursday-saturday afternoon, pickups probably possible wednesday evening) with the better specs likely to cost a little more, the others a little less than 200.

Please note that the contracts on the rentals are not signed yet. We are, however, confident that the verbal agreement will be put into a written contract as early as the end of next week. Since there is not a lot of time left until the event we wanted to once again be transparent about things and give you the opportunity to book your tickets if you wish to do so.

LAN tickets will not automatically be linked to your rental reservation. You may book your LAN tickets independently, as we are yet to figure out if rentals will be bookable via the Copenhagen Games website or another service.

As I am writing this we are working on the details for the tournament as well as signups, so expect an update fairly soon.

Cu@!

Hi all

The unthinkable has happened - Copenhagen Games 2022 has been cancelled by the event organizers.

We're really sorry to have to tell you this, and it comes as much as a surprise for us as it does for you guys. Until today, all plans were looking good and the event was good to go ahead as planned. Rentals had finally been sorted out, teams started forming, and we were all looking forward to the 13th of April.

So what happened?

There are a few parts to this story, I'll try to cover them all here.

The COVID situation meant that Copenhagen Games had to do a lot of the preparation in a very accelerated timeframe. The COVID restrictions in Denmark were lifted at the beginning of February, which in turn meant that the event could now go ahead from a legal standpoint. Many of the event partners had been waiting for this confirmation for months already, and had at this point already locked in their budgets for 2022. This meant that the economic situation of the event was looking bleak from the get-go.

The event needs about 400 computers total. A large chunk of these are rental machines, but many are also used for other aspects of running the event. Especially for TF2, rentals are crucial as so many of our players arrive from abroad. After a ton of work on the part of Mia especially, we managed to secure the necessary rental computers for the TF2 side of the event. Sadly, this didn't solve the issue of computers for the rest of the event, which was still short at the time of cancellation. We've been in contact with multiple hardware vendors and rental companies, and none have been able to provide the number of machines needed for the event. Many hardware vendors haven't even been willing to give an estimate, citing especially the global silicon shortage situation.

Finally, of course, a big concern is the COVID situation in Denmark. While Denmark no longer considers COVID a societally criticial disease, and has very few restrictions, the number of cases in the country are in the 30-40.000 a day. In a country with only 5.8 million inhabitants, this is quite significant and means there's a very real risk that we could end up with a lack of crew for the event. This of course on top of any travel restrictions that may still be in place around the world. Especially for TF2 this is a big concern, given the vast majority of our players are, of course, not from Denmark.

All in all, this really just sucks. We've put in uncountable hours trying to get this off the ground and happening for you guys, so believe us: we are just as devastated as you! Having missed both CG20 and CG21, the hype on the crew for CG22 was immense.

With the world starting to look more normal, we of course hope that we can realize a Copenhagen Games 2023. We hope you'll be there to join us!

Best regards,
Lasse, Mia, DCS, Heny, and the rest of the CGTF2 crew

I think I can safely say on behalf of everyone thank you for putting in so much effort to try and get this to happen, it hasn't gone unnoticed.

Hopefully see everyone later this year at Insomnia or next year at CPH!
