A&G 2012 - The Next Big American LAN Event! 13 January 2012 03:32:04  


Animation and Gaming Ohio, the annual convention in Cincinnati, Ohio, 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 (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!

Track packs containing the online competition tracks will be available 1 week before each round. More details regarding specific rules, regulations, 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!

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 the 2nd environment!


On Another Note:
We are still in need of maps for the finals.

Right now we are in need of mainly speedtech/harder tech maps.
All maps should be finishable after a respawn.
The track name should be A&G '12 - Trackname
Sign packs will be provided to all the authors in time

On the downside, anyone who makes a map will not be eligible to participate in the tournament.
Please send any maps to:
anxiety@staff.esl.eu (or, PM them to me via mx)
We will then let you know what we think of the map, any suggestions we have, and if we will be using it in the tournament.
