Chat with potential EU crew – updates about not having an Open
Hey everyone. We’ve been running the daily KotH’s as scheduled. Right now, it’s a bit tough for us to host an Open in the capacity that we have in the past. Our staff that would typically host these events has been a bit busy. As you noticed, we have a lot of fresh faced casters as well. We will continue with the King of the Hill events, and are considering bringing back a Master’s night.
I know I’ve been saying this forever, but we are actually due a check from JTV. This money will go towards the prize pool for an Open that will be planned and advertised well in advance. Until we figure out when this is happening, we likely will not be having a tournament unless someone steps up to host a tournament every week. Otherwise, we may cut back to a once a month type schedule – and/or cut back the hours of casted time for the tournaments.
I also spoke with a bloke from the EU servers earlier today about the start of an EU KotH and tournament series. If all goes as planned, we’ll be casting 8 hours a day, 4 for the EU KotH and 4 for the NA. My EU counterpart is trying to assemble a crew, and we’re planning some of the scheduling and website changes/updates that would need to occur to accommodate our EU friends.
