It's been almost 5 months since PiGSty Cup #3... but the fourth one is finally here!
A tournament where players of all skill come together in my house to drink beer, have a bbq and of course compete for the best trophy in all of eSports history!
The tournament is a local, community tournament. This isn't about the best players coming down, it's about anyone who enjoys Starcraft coming together to play some games, commentate some games, eat some bbq and drink a few beers. You're welcome to come down late to enjoy the atmosphere and drinks, or to come without intending to compete. I'll have 6 PCs set up, most in one room. A casting room (which everyone is encouraged to take a turn in - super casual and fun) as well as a general viewing/chill area with 55-inch TV, and an outdoor area with the BBQ set up.
I'll have a few more volunteers helping run the thing this time around so I'm hoping for a very smooth experience. Tournament play will aim to finish no later than 21:00. Play will be starting pretty promptly and we'll have a few extra PCs to make sure things move a long a lot quicker.
Date: April 22nd Time: 10:00-22:00 Venue: My place, right near Lidcombe Station in Sydney. Facebook Event:https://www.facebook.com/events/268134220307953/ Entry: $15 to cover beer and food (pretty much endless food being cooked - so you're getting 2-3 meals + drinks for this, pretty good deal! Format: Groups of 4, best-of-three into single elimination best-of-three is what I'm aiming for. But it's adjustable based on number of PCs I can squeeze in and number of signups.
At the moment it's only open to live attendees as the aim of the event is to be super focused on getting the local scene of ALL skill levels active again.
In future I'd love to do some online cups for community outside of Sydney/Aus to take part in, but for now you guys can just watch our super professional, not at all drunk commentary
Hope to see you all down here and meet a few new Starcraft lovers!
