glhf see you there

okay so after actually reading the event info:
Why are there ELEVEN days of registration and TWO days of tournament?
Why is it BEST OF ONE UNTIL THE SEMIFINALS?
BTW all tournament EXCEPT semis/finals takes place on ONE DAY. From 64-->4....?
once again registration is open for ELEVEN days. That's more time than it takes to complete an entire cycle of hontour.
Who is going to seed this? I REALLY hope it's not the same person that designed the format.
i dont even
i wish the competing teams even more luck because lets face it if you want to make it to dreamhack out of this tournament you'll really ****ing need it.
I'm gonna say... it wasn't me. But out of curiosity whats wrong with 11 days of registration?
[11:04:47 PM] Rene: but i just calculate people
[11:04:50 PM] Rene: when i meet them
[11:04:57 PM] Rene: and then pretty much know how to manipulate them
[11:05:01 PM] Rene: except for my friends ofc
[11:05:01 PM] Alex "sender" Wieker: dam you calculated me?
[11:05:08 PM] Rene: u count as a friend
[11:05:13 PM] Alex "sender" Wieker: yesss
- Hotel/Travel aren't covered - that means any team that qualifies through this has about a week to plan their trip.
- Any team with a hope of qualifying through this tournament has known about it for a month+ and will register by tomorrow
- Best of ones are bad enough, but in a single elimination format? **** me.
Will be fun to play atleast, but 1 week to plan the trip kinda sucks, probably impossible to make it IF we qualify
Because it costs money to use a venue, registration period could be as long as you want, because that's irrelevant to the fixed dates of the venue itself, you book it for 2 days one month ago, then you can announce the tournament either 11 days before the main event or 3 weeks, it's irrelevant.
You need to grasp the concept of event management to understand it completely.
sender is implying as if the venue is booked for 13 days.
And there will be around 26~ teams max. participating for HoN, it would be a waste of money to book the venue for 3 days for 20 something teams.

These people need to book their flights and accommodation within a week if they qualify. Instead of making it maybe five days of sign ups and then a three day tournament, leaving them with over a week to figure out accommodation etc. There is no point having 11 days of sign ups. It makes no sense.
i have no idea what the person who planned this was thinking when s/he put the last qualifier about a week before the actual event. you pretty much have to book hotel pre-qualifier to even be able to get a place to live. plus the prices will probably be crazy
Iceland is aswell =)
they are yet to have any accomplishments in HoN though.
I agree with Swindle and Sender, The tournament by all means can be two days if that's what has been decided, although Bo1 are a risky format for a large investment (Going to Dreamhack). But, Why not end the registration On Saturday/Sunday, and host the tournament at some point next week (Wed/Thurs/Fri), or (Tues/Wed/Thurs) or even make it two of those days. But Like others have stated especially those who live out of the Sweden like myself, I will plan everything ahead of time regardless, but its still not enough time. Teams who know if they can play the Nordic will after 5-6 days of seeing this information, and I'm sure every team playing in the Nordic has already planned ahead of time.
