Please read the post carefully and note the FAQ below!

Good day, beautiful gamers!

I would like to hereby inform you that the bosses over at the RCADIA in Hamburg, Germany have given their thumbs up for an awesome weekend of TF2 in their venue!

WHEN?
25th - 27th November 2022

WHAT?
A weekend all about TF2. The centerpiece will of course be a BYOC competitive TF2 tournament.
"What makes THIS one so special"? Glad you asked...
This event is also meant to be aimed at a variety of other parts of the community:
Highlander, Casual players, influencers, SFM animators (maybe even cosplayers?) and many more! Anyone who loves this game is welcome!
There will be a stream for you to watch, produced by PhoenixRed with the support of our hosts.

Which brings us to the WHERE?
RCADIA Hamburg, Germany
Oberer Landweg 27 - 29
21033 Hamburg

Never heard about this place? Basically, picture an ideal place to have a LAN, a bootcamp and/or a stream event at.
And the best part? It is also a hotel. More specifically, a hotel which was designed with the gaming community in mind. You will not even have to go outside when time has come to lie down! This place is an all-in-1 kind of deal.
You can choose whether to bring your own PC or rent one from RCADIA. They will have at least 80 machines (possibly more) waiting for you to pick up and play all weekend.

Rentals
Since RCADIA offers everything, tickets and rentals are cheaper than at events like insomnia or Copenhagen Games!
Tickets are now on sale right here!:
- participation tickets: 40 € (early bird rate), 50 € regular
- visitor / spectator tickets: 20 €
- Monitors (fri-sun, 24'', 144 Hz): 20 €
- PCs (fri-sun, cpu i7 10700kF/11700kF | gpu RTX 3060Ti | 16 GB 3200 MHZ ): 40 €

Accommodation
Rooms are also available now, may book yours here or through another website of your choosing. You do not have to stay at the hotel, but we highly recommend it!
Your team may even book a separate room in which you can scrim or hangout bootcamp-style! And do not forget about the streamer booths as well as the gaming area (open for the public every day) which includes PCs, Simulation Racing, VR Tower Tag and an AR Escape Room... everything is ready and waiting for you!

Tournament Registration (6v6)
Tournament signups are open as well! Head over to our toornament page and register your team ASAP!
ETF2L champions and i69 finalists Witness Gaming have already confirmed their attendance. Will you join them and battle for the 1.500 € prize pool?

Singups for Highlander are now also open!
https://play.toornament.com/en_GB/tournaments/6136996214205054976/

Schedule
This is a 3-day-event from friday to sunday. We are currently trying to persuade the RCADIA to open their doors for you on thursday evening (after 18.00), but we really cannot promise anything. For now the schedule looks as follows - all times in CET:

For that reason we recommend paying attention to this forum and join the RCADIA Discord in oder to receive updates.
The evening entertainment may start later than scheduled depending on when the games end each day.
The discord will be used for communication during the event, so at least 2 players per team are expected to join it and grab the TF2 role in #rollen anyway!

If you wanna check out the RCADIA already, feel free to browse the website RCADIA.de. Unfortunately a large part of it is in German, but you will get a good idea of what this place offers.

We cannot wait to welcome you all!

- Placeholder post for FAQ and Updates -

Are signups open yet? And if yes, where do I sign up?
Yes, they are! You can sign up for the 6v6 tournament on toornament right >>>here <<<.
Singups for Highlander are also open!
https://play.toornament.com/en_GB/tournaments/6136996214205054976/

Will there be a package deal for rooms and tickets / rentals?
No, you have to book them separately. Tickets/rentals + rooms

How long will the early bird rates on tickets be available?
The first 80 tickets are sold for the early bird rate.

How many tickets have been sold already?
Currently 96 players and 9 guests have bought a ticket (currently = 8th nov)

How many rentals are still available?
We have currently sold 80/80 PC rentals and 83/~100 monitor rentals (currently = 8th nov)

What equipment am I expected to bring?
You will have to bring your peripherals, such as mouse, keyboard, headset, mouse pad in any case. An ethernet cable will be provided to you.
If you are not from Germany you may need a power plug adapter since our sockets may be different to those you have at home. You better doublecheck as we will not have any available at the event!

Will I be able to cancel my ticket / rental?
Yes. Best way to do so is to open a ticket in the #support channel in the RCADIA Discord. (You should REALLY join that one)

Will there be ingame medals for participants?
Valve has stopped adding medals to the game. So no. No virtual medals for anyone. Nothing we can do about that...

What is the parking situation like?
There is an underground parking lot available - free of charge!

How do I get to the venue/hotel?
· By Plane! If you want to come by plane, you can fly to Hamburg Airport (HAM). From there it takes approximately 50 minutes to get to the venue. Take S1 train to Blankenese/Wedel (they are all going into the same direction) get out at Berliner Tor. At Berliner Tor and switch to S2/S21 to Bergedorf/Aumühle and get out at Nettelnburg. From there it's a 5 minute walk.

· By Train! If you travel by train you will either arrive at Hamburg Hauptbahnhof (Hbf, Central Station) or at Hamburg Harburg. From Hbf take the S2/S21train to Bergedorf/Aumühle and get out at Nettelnburg (20 Minutes). From there it's a 5 minute walk. From Harburg, you can either take the S3 train to Pinneberg, get out at Hbf and proceed from there (+20 mins), or you can take the X30 bus to Bergedorf and get out at Oberer Landweg (Eisenbahnbrücke) (30 min). The bus stops right in front of the Hotel.

· By Car! The RCADIA features a underground car park, where you are able to park for free.

Does the toornament front page show the actual number of registered teams?
Not necessarily. We verify every single team manually before their registration is shown in order to make sure no banned players are rostered. This is done in waves, approx. once a week, as it is rather tedious work.

Will there be a community photo?
Yes. And unlike at past events we will make a serious effort to get every TF2 person captured in the photo. (no h8, hydr8!)
The community photo is likely to be taken in the yard on saturday before the games start (around noon), but be sure to check the announcement on the RCADIA Discord as this plan may change (did I mention you should join that Discord yet?).

There will be a 6s tournament for sure. But we are planning to run at least one side competition. At this point it is not decided what that’s gonna be. Could be any competitive mode (2v2, 4v4, 7v7, 9v9).
