yeah, see were your coming from.
Some people do enjoy BYOC, however from the experience of the CoD and other popular competitive console communities it never really catches on and quite a few actually make a point against it.
I probably will attend although @M3lm0th will be mad, gonna buy him an "I <3 ID a n z" shirt.
Probably wont turn up to actually sweat, might just take PC aswell and hoping Guild Wars 2 is out at that time, sweat that instead and just play my tournament matches...
Am I allowed to take my PC and xbox with a single BOYC ticket?
Fair enough, sure he'll be over the moon to see you.
Tbf I don't actually know. I took my laptop as well as my TV and xbox, not sure about full PC though. Only one internet cable you can use at same time anyway, so you either play online, or use laptop/computer.
To be fair, it's down to personal preference. I think it's unfair for me to claim to know how it'll be. Ultimately though, you speak to a lot of top PC guys and they prefer TUP. The novelty of BYOC quickly wears off I think. I admit it's easier than waiting for a station to be freed up, but TUP is geared for a more social atmosphere. You're forced to watch other teams play and get talking to people. It's very easy to bury yourself in scrims all weekend and just speak to your team mates otherwise.
If i was to buy about 10-15 tickets in bulk for my community org, would i get a discount with the more tickets i buy? Also do you have to pay extra for camping or anything like that?
I think the reason his BYOC experience was a lot better was because he speakes to all of the WGL teams in the first place, there wasn't really awkward conversations of meeting new people, it was just putting names to faces.
Whereas the 'Decerto players' wouldn't really want to talk to them for whatever reason and would then just be talking to each other which I believe were kind of a minority of the teams that attended.
Seeing as they have a league it's kind of a conversation starter
@Shortlist Yeh you can get bulk discount tickets through the Multiplay Website.
All tickets include camping!
Ask them, although camping is including in the tickets.
@M3lm0th, your old age has not hindered your speed, M3lm0th.
Sorry If I'm being retarded but if your under 18, do you have to buy just a BYOC to be able to play or do you have to buy BYOC and TUP aswell? Thanks for any help in advance
needs more teams to attend though, would be nice of you lot to up the prize fund for us
Thanks for the fast reply, i tried looking for it but there was no form of discount what so ever. I am willing to pay for them just not at full price for 10 AND monitor rental lol.
@Shortlist - http://iseries.multiplay.co.uk/i46/tickets/#group
@SkitzoCal - The BYOC gets you entry into everything. We will be running other tournaments as well. For example FIFA and Fighting Games
no, no no please no
PC Gamers will laugh at our community, like they already do.
So, no we don't "have to show the pc players how we roll"
You just need BYOC - this gets you a seat, power and a network connection in the console area. Use the seat picker to choose your seat with your team and bring your own kit
More about monitor rentals next week - the event manager is currently on a week off and I will make sure he gets the monitors sorted for you guys! Although its probably worth if you plan on doing future events to invest in a reasonable monitor. The ones we use are iiyama 22" 1080p monitors, and they are perfect for tournaments
To be honest paying 30 pound isnt that bad if you are able to play whenever you want but leaving controllers around could they not be easily lifted? Or is there good security?
Just had a look and they are £73.60 same price as a single ticket.
At the moment you do not have to pay full price, its 20% off.
If you are going to come as a large group however, there are discounts available after the early bird expires. Check this page:
These do not stack with the 20% you get at the moment however
I don't really see the reasoning behind claiming that allowing under 18s to compete is 'exploitative', it's free will, people attend because they want to. And now surely they've fully undermined that by switching it to 16+ this time around?
I'm less concerned about the legality behind it all, or the supposed rivalry between the 2 organisers for XP and whatnot, I just think it's a shame for under 18s who may want to attend but can't budget it.
Actually camping is a really good idea at this event. Generally the other two events (Winter and Spring) can be a bit cold, but this event is in August, and should be (*fingers crossed*) really good camping weather!
Yeah I want to shower.
EDIT: Do you need to bring your own monitor if you're under 18?
So £73 is the cheapest its going to get for a group of 5 or more?
is it always in Telford?
