Hi,

If you clicked the link that means you probably already know what a Warzone open is, if you don't here goes:

A Warzone open is an event held at a pre-determined real world location, which is often streamed and has several high tier players in attendance. There are events exclusively for players at the event and also for any players who are online around the world.

I am looking to host a Warzone open in August this year near Manchester (UK), the way I currently envisage this happening is it would be a three-day event from Friday to Sunday with around 6 tournaments and featuring a couple of showmatches.

I am also considering throwing in a small cash prize for the best performing attendee over the course of the weekend.

The dates I am currently looking at are:
August 7-9
August 14-16
August 21-23

At this stage I am not looking for any confirmations of attendance but would appreciate it if you could let me know what dates are best for you, if you are considering attending, by filling out this short Google form (there are also some extra questions related to the format of the event itself, if you have the time please fill these in as well).

Good luck s1gmoyd!

I can only recommend attending a wz open, both of the ones we held in Berlin were tremendous fun.


and dry clean, get your priorities straight! Just kidding, good luck to you too! =D

I feel like doing one in Australia would be fun but it would be a lot of work to have 3 people turn up... 😉

Would probably be a stretch too far unless you made a full holiday out of it.

Okay, based on the underwhelming amount of responses in this thread and on the Google Form I'm going to shelve this idea. Sorry if you were interested but didn't have the chance to respond.

@huddyj I'm Victorian. Melbourne tbp.
@Viking I know, but I'm not quite sure you realise a few of these factors:
1. There might be a large number of Aussie players, but probably only a small percentage would bother coming to an event, even if it were their own city.
2. Australia is huge. The distance between the heavily populated areas is massive. (US is a little bit bigger than Australia, but it has more than 10 times the population, and that population is fairly evenly spread; in Aus, we have ~25 million people, and 15m of those live in only 5 cities (Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth)) This makes transport and accommodation necessary and costly for those travelling interstate; I know I would not spend more than 50 bucks on getting myself to something like this, but I might be an outlier...

Think about the previous Berlin Opens and the US open being discussed (even this Manchester one!); each of those places has a far larger population than any of the Australian cities, and they are much closer (with the exception of the US one) to travel to: Berlin in the north of Germany, for instance, is only 6 hours by car away from Munich in the south. Melbourne to Brisbane takes 3 times that amount, and it's about the same for Melbourne to Sydney.

Basically, what I'm saying is, despite the seemingly large number of Aussie players on Warzone (which is tiny relative to the number of US and German players), very few people would turn up to an event organised in Australia, because of the small percentage that would even come anyway and the large difficulties for those who would like to come.

My bottom line: and event in Australia would likely only get <20 people, >15 of whom would all be from the host city. :/

But Aussies, you're welcome to prove me wrong!!!

Assuming the virus is still in the uk by the scheduled date, I won't be coming.
