What are the details on the hotel?
More info to come.
Can I play in other tournaments?
You may only play in other tournaments if and when you’ve been eliminated from the TF2 tournament. Keep in mind that the TF2 tournament is only on Saturday, so anything you wish to do on Friday is up to you. There are no tournaments on Sunday.
How can I sit with my team or other friends?
There will be a section for each charity (so a red section, green section, and blue section). Make sure your team picks the same color/charity if you want to sit near each other. If you don't care about sitting next to each other, then it doesn't matter what color/charity everyone chooses. There will be no assigned seating within each section.
Will there be rental computers and monitors?
We are looking into rentals and will get back to you with updates. We know this is important to a lot of you, so we are trying our best to make this an option.
