epic22 - Event Defrag

Recommended Posts

Hello Guys & Gals,

 

Another sell out event, so congratulations to anybody who helps contribute to our success and we much appreciate your support.

 

However with sell out events comes major responsibility to our shoulders with regards to the seating plan and how to keep everyone fairly happy. Last event I 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 and of course Overwatch now with teams of 6. 

 

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

Quote

Clan Tags

Ensure these are up to date and matching with the rest of your community. This can be done on https://www.epiclan.co.uk/account
Seat Layout

We will do what we can to keep you in the same configuration as you are sat, but to fit in other people this may not always be the case, same with your particular location.

 

Here is the process that everyone will need to follow in Fair Isle.

Quote

Team Games - Teams of 5 (CS:GO/Dota2)

 

Please make sure you have signed your team to your tournament, this will help me with any teams who need to stick together, and thus means I don't displace anyone in stupid areas. It is vitally important you do this step. If you haven't allocated your tickets for obvious reasons (line-ups incomplete) then please do so as soon as physically possible to help with signing your teams up.

 

Tournament Website

How To Allocate Your tickets Guide

 

Team Games - Teams of 6 (Overwatch)

If you are an Overwatch Team, you will be placed primarily in the room Portland, as this room caters for teams of 6 players. Please make sure you are tagged up as appropriate and/or signed up on the Tournament website.

 

Single Players - 1v1 Games SC2/HS

 

I know there are a group of SC2 players who all like to be kept together. If you are part of the SC2 community and want to stick together, I will do all I can to facilitate that. If one or two of those members can contact us either through this thread or Support ticket then that would be much appreciated, just list the names of people who are in your group and that will help me keep you all together.

 

Large Groups in FI

 

There are a few groups in Fair Isle who are fairly sizeable, again please make sure that you either grab Gumpster here and/or support ticket with the names in your group and how specifically you want to be sat, that would be much appreciated

 

Looking to have some drafts in the next coming days and have a final plan ASAP.

 

Thank you for your cooperation and see you in a couple weeks time

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here is the Lakeside 1st draft. Let me know if anything needs changing or any preferences. I will always do what I can but cannot make any massive promises. With Lakeside filling up so quickly lots of people are scattered in some cases so we need to make sure those guys are catered for, but that we don't split up any groups

Thanks

Preferably next to the two in H.

So moving umbra is fine, moving you to those rows may be difficult, because of the numbers in your group and the people around you, I have a feeling i would have to move entire rows, for the 5 stack you are in. I will see what I can do but the main thing is you will be together.

So.... I still have 11 people yet to find (I have 17 seats to fill in both rooms, and 3 more in Lakeside), and I cannot seem to find said people, but I've been slogging away at this and pretty much ready to go with the draft.

 

If you have failed to sign up your team name, or you haven't tagged yourselves up as a "clan" on the seating planner, then I will have missed you and when it comes to actioning all the changes, you will be dumped whereever I have space on the seating planner as a result. It is in your best interests to follow the plan, that goes for the Dota2 community importantly because I haven't had enough information to see what teams are which.

 

The FAIR ISLE DRAFT.

Hello,

 

Leader of INFED here. 

 

Would it be possible for us to stay in the main room, FI? We'd rather not be moved into Portland, we have been trying for weeks now to ensure all of our members are in FI-B20 to FI-B13 but had no response from those sitting in b-11 to b-13. I understand defragging is a necessity.

 

Edit: After discussing interally portland H is fine with us, sorry for an inconvenience.

Hi, sc2 person not in a team with other people, would it be possible to be moved so I'm with the rest of the people playing Starcraft 2? Atm it looks like there's 4 of us in Fair isle, then everyone else in portland from the draft. 

Edit: Though if INFED get the seats there asking for above, I guess that all works out anyway ^^

Actioned, but I've put you as 4 and 4 atm. Do you want that or would you prefer a long aisle?

Done.

 

We would much prefer a row of 8, after discussing interally the majority of SC2 players seem to be in portland so we're happy to take portland H as originally planned. 

 

Thanks

Feasibility of group sizes Jaddie. A group of 6 goes into a row of 6 better when I have several groups of 8 who can slot into rows of 8. Strange that :P

@DanBennett - @Umbra_curatoris now with you, but moving your 5 stack into seats taking up by an 8 stack just doesn't work unfortunately.

@Avellana - Check your PM's im still unsure how many in your stack

 

I had another request in PM for team @MoleInHole which is also sorted.

 

Lets keep the communication to this thread guys, no need to PM me stuff about the seating plan. Just makes it easier to reference and resolve

 

Thanks

      Hello Guys & Gals,
       
      Firstly, this is a little short notice and late, however this is due to the fact that ticket sales have only just started picking up over the last few weeks, and the seating plan has started to get a little fragmented as a result.
       
      To make everyone aware, only the rooms named PORTLAND & FAIR ISLE will be getting defragged. Lakeside still has plenty of seats (and we can always open another row if needed to accommodate any late ticket sales).
       
      Please be aware, if you are part teams then you will need to get your players to buy tickets as soon as possible otherwise I will end up bunching part teams together to make space for others.
       
      This is a major responsibility to shoulder with regards to the seating plan and how to keep everyone fairly happy. In previous events, we have accomplished of keeping the majority of people happy with this, however please understand that this is a tough thing to accomplish. We have people attending on their own, all the way up to groups of 10+. We will be reaching out as much as possible to organise this the best we can. The logistics of this is very time consuming and takes a lot of work by ourselves. We are happy to discuss alternatives and as much as we want everyone to be 100% happy, there may need to be some compromises and I would ask that you work with us to come to such agreements if needed.
       
      As a final further point. We will not tolerate any sort of toxicity within this thread or anywhere on these forums or any other public forum (social media, discord etc.) Please respect both ourselves and each other throughout this process. We don't do this for our own benefit, we do this to make sure everyone has a... EPIC LAN!
       
      Here are some vital things to follow
       
      The seating plan will be LOCKED on June 8th & 9th for me to do the changes necessary. If you have any specific requests, please use this thread to communicate and please make sure you communicate these requests in a efficient manner (ie please check with others in your group or groups that everything is as it should be). Once June 9th (at 11pm) rolls around, I will take no further requests from anyone and the seating plan will be locked until LAN.
       
      Thanks

      want to mention two things
       
      1)seating defrags will be happening closer to the event so make use of clan tags and contacting the defragger with info for your group/friends.
       
      2)leave walking space in sleeping areas PLEASE.(I dont want to injure my self)
       
      this is not about causing arguements.
       
    • By left-one
      I feel i need to mention this before some one gets hurt there is a large suitcase plus other things on what i would count as a walkway in the sleeping area i dont know anyone who could step over this safely i know i cant.

      epic24 seems so long ago and I haven't been back since. Having taken the 3v3 Rocket League tournament, I'm hungry for more.
       
      And so...
       
      I have plans to return to epic27 with a new team behind me! I am incredibly excited as epic24 was my first taste of a LAN and I loved every minute of it. It's completely worth the 700 miles round trip and I'm ready to do it all over again!
