REGISTRATION OPENS 1/1/22

In the aftermath of the cancellation of DreamHack Anaheim, a new TF2 LAN event is born in its stead. Starting with this event, we are aiming to break the cycle of frustrating LAN cancellations from the past few years, and offer a great LAN experience that the TF2 community deserves. Localhost is committed to supporting grassroots esports communities of all shapes and sizes, so hopefully this can serve as the beginning of a new era of TF2 events all across the country.

When:
February 12-13, 2022 (Saturday and Sunday)
11am-10pm PST Daily (10:30am Check-in)

The venue will be open in the days before and after the event, feel free to stop by and rent some time on the computers for even more LAN experience.

Where:
Localhost Fullerton
1134 S Harbor Blvd, Fullerton, CA 92832
https://www.localhost.gg/fullerton/
Venue photos: https://imgur.com/a/dE99IWt
(Note: The building is brand new, and attached to a Five Below that replaced a closed Chuck E Cheese, so don’t be surprised if searches of the address wield outdated results)

Localhost Fullerton is in a fantastic location with many amenities in the immediate vicinity, including: free parking, restaurants (In-N-Out, Chipotle, Chic-fil-A, GEN Korean BBQ, etc), shopping centers (Amazon Fresh, Costco, Target, Best Buy, etc), lodging (Fullerton Lodge, Willow Tree Lodge), and is just down the road from attractions such as downtown Fullerton and Disneyland. Cross-country travelers can fly into any of the nearby airports LAX, BUR, SNA, ONT or LGB.

What:
An open 6v6 TF2 community LAN tournament, everyone is welcome to sign up. There will be a group stage into a double elimination bracket. We would love to have 8 teams, but the more the merrier! Tournament entry fee is TBD, but aiming for roughly $50/person or $300/team, which will include PC access during the tournament. This is not a BYOC, up to 60 high-end computers will be provided for our use, but participants are encouraged to bring their own peripherals (Mouse, Keyboard, Mousepad, Headset, Config). Spectators are welcome to visit to watch and hang out for the weekend, for a small entrance fee (TBD). All ticket purchases will be split 50/50 between covering event costs and funding the prize pool.

Prizing:
$3000 minimum, to increase based on sign ups, spectator attendance, crowdfunding and sponsorships. With the following breakdown:

1st - 45%
2nd: 25%
3rd: 15%
4th: 6%
5th: 2.7%
6th: 2.7%
7th: 1.8%
8th: 1.8%

Localhost TF2 LAN (LHTF2) Update #1

Happy New Year! We’ve got some great news about the event to start 2022 off right.

REGISTRATION IS LIVE
Team passes and spectator passes are now available: https://nerdstreet.com/events/tf2-at-localhost-fullerton-2022-02-12
Team passes - $300/team
Spectator passes - $10 1-day, $15 2-day

In order to purchase a team pass, you will need to create a team and have 6 players rostered. It is fairly straightforward and quick to set up, just have someone register an account and create the team through Nerdstreet’s system (https://nerdstreet.com/dashboard) and then send each player the invite link provided on your team page.

Teams + LFT Spreadsheet
To help everyone get a sense of who’s coming to the event, and to help teams form, we put together a spreadsheet of attendees: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1iJ7tKxWe3ZhIGVKKvYUMVKNrwzBQyKZ0Hb2uq-m8t78/edit?usp=sharing

Please reach out to me on Discord (b4nny#0323) so we can keep the list updated. Individuals looking for teams should tell me their name, desired classes, division, and preferred contact method.

You can also find the current list of confirmed fully paid attendees (Teams/Spectators) here: https://nerdstreet.com/events/tf2-at-localhost-fullerton-2022-02-12?section=attendees

Sponsorship: VAXEE
We are happy to welcome our first sponsor of the event, VAXEE! They are a relatively new esports hardware company that consists of many of the original Zowie Gear team, carrying on their legacy of high-end gaming peripherals. The winning team of the tournament will have their choice of 6 VAXEE products: https://www.vaxee.co/en/product.php (Winners will need to provide a shipping address, and phone number in order to receive their prize)

We are in talks with a few more potential sponsors, so stay tuned for more updates.

RGL Conduct Partnership
We will be aligning with RGL’s player conduct policies during the event, so any violations of them during the event may result in RGL penalties, and this also means that any player that is RGL banned at the time of the event would not be allowed to participate, either as a player or spectator.

Next Steps
Going forward, the top things on our agenda are to spread the word far and wide about this event to get as many people signed up as possible, to flesh out the event ruleset and schedule, to iron out production details, to launch a crowdfunding/merch campaign to benefit the prize pool, and to lock down a couple more sponsors. Things are moving fast, but they are coming together nicely and we are on track for a great event so far.

As always, please post if you have any further questions or concerns.

LHTF2 Update #2

REGISTRATION DEADLINES
There will be a deadline of 2/1/22 for all new team registration. If you intend to sign up a team but cannot register or pay before that deadline please reach out to us so we can see about making an arrangement for you. Spectator passes will remain open for purchase online, and will still be available day of the event or in person.

Currently we have all of the top teams in NA fully registered (froyotech, Witness Gaming, Like a G6) plus a few fan favorites (Ford Gaming, Portland Burnsiders), with more in the process of confirming (RoS, Global Clan, etc) for a total of ~10 teams. Because we are going to have so many teams there will likely not be many open PCs for drop-ins/rentals until late in the evening on day 1. If you want to guarantee yourself a 0-ping experience, be sure to get a team together and signed up for the tournament.

Buy team passes and spectator passes here: https://nerdstreet.com/events/tf2-at-localhost-fullerton-2022-02-12

Team + LFT Spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1iJ7tKxWe3ZhIGVKKvYUMVKNrwzBQyKZ0Hb2uq-m8t78/edit?usp=sharing

Ruleset, Plugins, Configs
All matches will be played with RGL rules, and RGL map list (TBD), except where specified otherwise.

There will be no halftimes. Teams will be encouraged to use their tactical pauses between rounds instead.

KOTH matches will be played first to 4.

5CP matches will be played with the Improved Round Timer and Improved Match Timer plugins. The specific settings of each are as follows:

Round timer will be set to 3 minutes (resetting each time a point is captured).
Match timer will be 30 minutes, but if neither team scores 5 points by then, the winlimit will be reduced to the current highest score plus 1 (ex: After 30 mins, the score is 3-1, so the winlimit will be set to 4 and the match will only end when a team scores 4 points).
These settings are meant to reduce prolonged stalemates, and to eliminate undesirable effects of traditional timelimit formats (parking the bus as a winning strategy, stifled comebacks, garbage time, anticlimactic match endings, etc). These plugins are available now on servers rented from http://na.serveme.tf for you to practice with (select Enable Plugins and rgl_6s_5cp_improvedtimers).

The plugins can also be downloaded separately from the links below.

Improved Match Timer: https://github.com/dewbsku/Improved-Match-Timer
Improved Round Timer: https://github.com/b4nnyBot/TF2-Improved-Round-Timer-Plugin
Combined Pack: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1pU1G2im-d2wa12ijyKmR4UegMpJzJe8a/view?usp=sharing

Logistics/Stream Info
This will be one of the first events under the “RESUP” banner, to delineate the event organization, production and finances. The on-site production team will be streaming to http://twitch.tv/b4nny, covering the headline match at any given moment, but since there may be as many as 4 simultaneous matches at once, we will hope to coordinate with other production teams to cover as many matches as possible on different channels. We are aiming for the on-site casts to have a loose and fun feel with plenty of guest casters and community interaction. We will set up a couple live cams for the stream and also have an event photographer getting pictures of players, teams, and action from the event.

ironically this config adds undetermined time onto the 30 minutes and theoretically a match could last indefinitely if nobody caps (luckily which 99.9% probably will not happen)
