Hello CSGO players, now that CG has a studio
, we're considering starting up a new competition with LAN finals. This would be done as a new brand on it's own independent website, but run by CyberGamer.
The format I'm thinking of currently would run something like the following (ignore dates, they are just posted as a guide for season length for flights etc):
Entry fee per team:
Online Qualifier #1
Sunday May 7th: 10am-10pm - Double Elimination, top 4 teams make it to LAN
Online Qualifier #2
Sunday May 14th: 10am-10pm - Double Elimination, top 4 teams make it to LAN
Saturday+Sunday June 3rd-4th
The alternative format would be a 4-5 week online season of some fashion, likely swiss format: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swiss-system_tournament
Anyway, the competition's aim is essentially for a LAN final to occur every 6-8 weeks with essentially zero down-time between seasons if possible.
Please vote in the poll above if you would be interested in something like this as i'm unsure whether the scene wants in an additional recurring LAN competition. I think it is only sustainable if there is at least 50 teams interested, and basically won't bother pursuing the idea any further if there isn't strong interest.
Any questions let me know.
