DreamHack Montreal Brood War Meetup
Hello friends, let's have a meetup! I would like to follow up on here regarding helping some Brood War fans coordinate a happening at our event.
DreamHack is about community gatherings and we would love to help you meet up and have a good time with one another, StarCraft has always been first and foremost about friends and community to me and I would be so happy if we can help people get closer to one another. The most important part:
If we get 32 signups to the DreamHack Montreal BYOC, we will provide a $2000 CAD prize pool for a tournament.
On the TL side BisuDagger, Ty, gypsy, and Tim will help coordinate plans like what form this tournament takes, and how people will meet on site, and I'll help coordinate what they need from DreamHack. They have already started by getting an Event Discord ready as well as figuring out how people can situate themselves in the LAN. There is a current registration list here with interest.
I'm currently planning the SC2 event WCS Fall and will be on site overseeing that so I'd love to meet everyone there.

Apologies to all for how late this is, I'd love to help out in any way I can with other questions. One final piece: If you cannot bring a laptop or PC to play on, it's possible to help you find a place to rent one, however its very expensive at about $400 CAD, so be aware.

You must be on the Ticket Rollcall and Event Discord to participate in the tournament. People who have the Bought Ticket role on the Discord server will be given access to channels with the challonge link.
Make sure that your Discord name on this server, your name on the Ticket Rollcall, and your name in the upcoming challonge bracket are all the same. Info and coordinating games will be primarily done through Discord.
