Possibly running EU casual online tournaments?


#1

Ok I just posted a bit in the Fantasy Strike discord about this, but here’s a thread to discuss here as well.

I’m considering running some Europe-only online tournaments for Fantasy Strike.

It wouldn’t be anything serious or with prizes or anything or (usually) streamed or as professional as the E4i ones, and I would likely have to run it on a weeknight evening at an EU evening friendly time, most likely 7-9pm UK time (Mon-Fri), most likely a Tue or Thur.

Assuming it went well it would be a semi-regular occurrence but on no fixed schedule per-say, just whenever I could do it. Format of the tournament would vary (team or single character, and double/single elim or round robin, swiss etc, maybe some other wacky things).

The reason for making it Europe-only is so it’s an acceptable timezone for people in Europe, and to ensure a reasonable standard of connection quality between opponents.
It’s also because this would be intended to be a European FS community-building thing as opposed to anything ultra-competitive (especially as the top players are pretty well known at this stage anyway!). I have experience with this working well from other fighting games too.

Feedback I’m looking for is:

  1. Would you be interested in this?
  2. If so, any strong preference for time or weeknight to play it?
  3. Any other thoughts?

I’d be interested! Tuesday/Thursday evenings sound great at those times.

Update: Planning to make the first event on Thur Nov 8th. Will make another post soon for proper promotion :slight_smile:
