Hello Guys & Gals,
As we creep closer and closer to epic25, we need to start looking at the seating situation and getting the defrag planned ASAP so that everyone is in the know!
This is a major responsibility to shoulder with regards to the seating plan and how to keep everyone fairly happy. Last event we managed to make everyone fairly happy, however please understand that this is a tough thing to accomplish, we have larger groups which are odd numbers, and 1v1 type games in Fair Isle with the usual 5 man teams.
If you are a casual player and wanting atmosphere, we strongly urge you to go into Lakeside. Fair Isle is the competitive hall, and is treated as such for that reason, We won't force you to move of course, but it would be much appreciated if you were casual and wanted a smaller LAN feeling to sit in Lakeside.
Last couple of events what we did, was group all respective gaming communities and placed them in the appropriate parts of the hall, if you were a Dota team, you were down the Dota row, if you were CS:GO you were in the CS:GO rows, that same logic will continue for this event too as it makes it better for all players and admins involved.
Similarly, in Lakeside, we would group communities together as much as possible, whether that be back to back or full row. keeping spaces for other people to book up last min (as usual)
Here is the process for people in Lakeside
Here is the process that everyone will need to follow in Fair Isle/Portland.
