Lets hammer out a plan for a PG Tourney. Its something you guys have been asking for a while and im finally convinced it would be fun :P
HARDWAREXBOX - 4 Consoles - 8 Controllers
PS3 - 4 Consoles - 8 Controllers
PC - 8 rigs
Displays (Shared) - 8 Plus (if possible) a projector
Camera :P - 1
WHO WILL PARTICIPATE
Since most of us have broadbands, im thinking a league like tourney with best teams/players from Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad (others cities welcome) facing off in a grand final over the internet. We might also make league games online depending on the number of people interested.
The plan is to use PCs/360s for local matches and only using the PS3 for finals (i.e. online matches). A problem for us is PCs, people can bring their consoles to the spot easily but a PC is a whole diffferent story. any suggestions how we can do this? how about someone picking up pcs from the homes of guys who dont have their own transportation.
DID YOU SAY KARACHI LAHORE AND ISLAMABADYes. There will basically be simultaneous PG meets in 3 cities with more people joining in via the internet. We intend the Tourney to be finished in a single day (i.e. the league games plus the finals).
WE STILL NEED A PLACE
This is the hardest part. We have some places in karachi, homes of some pg members etc but i fear we might have to rent out spaces in out cities. It would be great if members from all cities can visit thier local gaming zones and find out how much it will cost us to rent 10 or so PCs for 6 hours. We can connect the consoles to the pc monitors, im sure those guys wont have a problem (atleast the guys at playdium karachi dont)
how about a show of that pg spirit! as you can see we need consoles, games and controllers! it would be great if we can find copies of PS3 cause thats a problem. 360 games are dime a dozen and there are plenty of controllers around. Please guys, if you can bring a console, controller, pc or a display, do come forward!
so this is just the blueprint. no date yet. suggestion welcome, what do you think?
Question 1: Your gut feeling about this plan?
Question 2: What would you prefer, someones home or a gaming cafe?
Question 3: How much does it cost per hour at your nearest gaming cafe (must have atleast 20pcs)
Question 4: Can you bring a console, controller, game, monitor?
Question 5: are you a graphics guy? can you make us a banner? and are you good with a camera? we might need you
Question 6: Should we keep it offline? i.e. separate winners for all cities or should it be online? please answer keeping in mind the answers to all the questions above.
