VCU Open Online Mirror - Canceled

Post by Mike Bentley »

We're going to be hosting a mirror of VCU Open on Saturday, 8/31.

Fee will be $25 per person. If you provide a moderator, we'll drop that to $15 per person. Initial field cap will be 8 teams. I'm likely going to weight it towards teams of at least 2 players rather than solo players. I'll post more details later.

The players on a team all need to be in the same physical location to play. No exceptions.

I'll post more details about the specifics, but note that these tournaments start later (for east coast teams) than normal and take a little longer to run.

We won't be running any side events.

I didn't vote in the poll since I'm not playing, but I'd be willing to read on the 25th. 31st, no go.

I'll keep the poll open until tomorrow night, but as of right now I think 8/31 will be the date. It would be great if people who voted in the poll could also say who they are.

I voted 25th because that's before classes start for us.

This statement applies to me as well.

Voted for either, but there's a chance that a Georgia Tech contingent might be interested in this.

I think I could moderate for this. Sunday is move-in day, so that wouldn't be doable for me.

I wish stuff like this could be announced before people, like, playtest 0.5/0.5 for the set because they don't think they can make it to any mirrors.

Sorry, this was a pretty last minute type thing.

Anyway, let's set the date at 8/31/13. Please let me know if you can attend.

On the database the most recently uploaded set is called "VCU Closed" but is actually VCU Open. Has anyone else noticed? Sorry if I should have posted elsewhere but this thread seemed apropos since it is the only mirror of the set yet to be played. While we're on the subject, when is VCU Closed going to be posted?

I uploaded VCU Closed a little while ago, I don't know what the delay in it showing up is. I also don't know who chose to upload VCU Open (to the wrong tournament/at all) but people playing the delayed online mirror should not look at it.

I've removed the VCU Open upload from that duplicate entry. I have no idea why that was approved; I didn't do it (I very rarely approve uploads at all). Thanks for catching that, Austin.

I haven't seen any notification of VCU Closed packets being uploaded to the correct entry through the database.

I am canceling this tournament due to lack of interest.
