We're all bummed out that Copenhagen Games got canceled, but I figure since we've all booked time off for Easter anyway and are stuck sitting inside, why don't we organize a tournament to keep ourselves occupied and have something to get hyped about?
I have 40€ sitting in my paypal account that I'd be willing to put up as prize money, and if we have a bunch of people chip in some small amount of money we could gather a pretty decent pot that's worth competing for, I recon. I'll open up my paypal for donations if enough people express interest.
I think the best format for this tournament would be to have two separate ones: One invite tournament for top teams and an open tournament for everyone else. How the invite tournament is organized would depend on the number of teams, but I think the Open tournament should start with 4-team groups leading into a single knockout bracket, to ensure that everybody get to play at least 3 games. The main issue with this format is that it can be difficult to pull it all of in one day, and two-day tournaments are just harder to schedule for IMO.
If you have any good suggestions or or ideas please share them here. I'm just spit balling at this point.
So let's have a lockdown smackdown, a rumble as society crumble, a containment competition, a quarantine guillotine, you know, a TF2 tournament!
