MAJOR US/World Competition- A&G Trackmania² Open [LAN FINAL]

Post by MacDuffman » 14 Dec 2011, 15:53

Alright everybody, for months I've been saying that I've had something big planned for the United States, and yes, we have it. Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you:

The A&G ’12 Trackmania² Open

Image Image Image

Animation and Gaming Ohio, the annual convention in Cincinnati, Ohio that I work with, has teamed up with sponsors Ubisoft, Intel, and DSGW.de to create the premier Trackmania² competition within the United States! However, this does not mean only U.S. residents can participate...

This competition is Worldwide. That's right if you can make it to Cincinnati, Ohio in March for the final, you can be crowned champion of the first ever "US Open" of Trackmania²: Canyon.


Competition Format/Timetable

*Prelims, January 21st, 8PM EST (UTC-5) (Online): This will be open to any person willing to enter into the tournament. All you will need to do is to fill out the entry form, submit it, and be on time to the competition server. This will be in rounds mode, to eliminate backmarkers, and to help seed the 16 semifinalists.

*Semifinals, February 4th (Online): The top 16 competitors from the preliminary round will compete in one of 2 semifinal sections. Cup mode will be used.

*LAN FINALS, March 10th: The top 4 competitors from each semifinal matchup (8 in total) will compete in a live, LAN Final on the A&G Ohio stage. All finalists will receive FREE entry to the convention space for the weekend. Cup mode will be used.
** Many more prizes will be announced within the coming days and weeks, and we have some great ones lined up already!

Prizes:
Intel will be supplying Core I7 processors for the Top 3 in the final. In addition, a much larger prize to be announced within the next couple weeks... stay tuned. ;)

Ubisoft will also provide each finalist with t-shirts and a free copy of TM2 to give to a friend, girlfriend, grandmother.


Track packs containing the online competition tracks will be available 1 week before each round. More details regarding event times, and other related items will be made available very soon! In the mean time, start training and we’ll hope to see you in Cincinnati in March!

It's logistics. Sadly there wasn't enough time in the convention schedule for both semis and the final to take place live during the weekend. Still though, 8 finalist spots are open.

"For years, the game “Trackmania” and its predecessors have been a large part of the worldwide competitive gaming scene."

sorry, but it should be only Trackmania Nations Forever here to be perfectly correct.

anyway cool to see it's open worldwide.

Haha Frost, I was thinking about that when I typed it. I was just referring to the TM brand, like Weeeee indicated. :)

If you're interested, or even want to help me promote it just give me a shout. We'd love some World Champion material involved with this.

It should be incoming this weekend. Would have been here sooner but there was a theft at my apartment, and my laptop was stolen.

We should have specific rules up in a few days. :D
