Essentials.TF is excited to finally be able to go public with information about our next offline 6v6 LAN event, which will take place in Lidköping, Sweden under the banner of Esport United Community Rumble between the 3rd and 5th of November 2017.

LAN Venue

The event will be held at the local esportcenter in Lidköping, a natural place to hang out for the local youth with computers, consoles and a skatepark. Their website is unfortunately in Swedish but if you want to check it out it can be found here.

Format

There will be PCs at the venue, so you do not need to bring your own; this has however limited us a little when creating the tournament format. Do bring your keyboard, mouse, mousepad and headset with you if you prefer to play in the competition with your own peripherals.

Invite teams

We will be inviting 4 teams to the tournament in Sweden, where they will play in their own group of 4 with all of them moving on to the playoffs stage. In the invite group matches will be played as a Best of Two.

The tournament starts on Friday 3 November at 14:00 CET, resumes on the Saturday and Sunday at 10:00 CET and will have the Grand Final at 18:00 CET on the Sunday.

Open sign-ups

In total we have 10 spots up for grabs. The teams signing up will be split into 2 groups of 5 and will play against each other in Best of One matches. From the open groups 2 teams will move on to the playoffs stage, but they will start in the lower bracket.
Sign-up fee for open teams is 150 SEK (±€15) per player. Sign-ups will open 18th of September at 23:59 and all fees need to be paid before the team is accepted.

Playoff Stage

Playoffs will be a 6 team double elimination with the 4 invited teams starting in the Upper Bracket and the 2 teams from the Open groups starting in the Lower Bracket.
