epic.SIX Feedback

As the event comes to a close it's time for a small piece of quiet reflection! As is customary we have created a short feedback survery that is only available to participants at epic.SIX which covers a few topics from venue to big games. Using the survey it allows us to be a bit clever with Excel and make some pretty graphs; it makes it far more valuable.

Anyway, find the survey under "My Account" => "Surveys".

Any problems, let us know!

Preparing for Check-In

epic.SIX Check InPlease help us to speed up the check-in process and keep the queues down by doing the following:

If you are planning on spectating the event or you have visitors coming to see you, please create a spectator booking on the system in advance, it's still fine to pay on the door, but will save time on the day.

Remember, the doors open at 4pm, if you arrive any earlier we'll have to ask you to wait outside or in the Railway Bar sleeping area.

TF2 Dodgeball Fun Tournament

Following on from the fun we've had at previous events and on numerous epic.Thursdays, TF2 Dodgeball will be getting an official slot on our timetable. But not only that, it will be one of our fun tournaments in Hall 1.

For those who don't know, playing is very simple, as you may not even have to move to let your team succeed. Both teams will spawn on their respective sides of a symmetrical arena, where they may or may not be able to reach the enemy teams side, which depends on the map. A specific spawn point, usually high up and is in the split center of the arena, spawns Critical rockets that home on one random player, which must be airblasted to the other team or the crocket will explode on contact with the pyro who failed to airblast it, forcing him to spectate until a new game starts, as dodgeball functions like arena mode.

The format is extremelly simple; tried and tested. It's 3 vs 3 in a knock out competition with the 2 final teams battling it out on Sunday for overal victory! Don't be the one to hear "You've failed! BOOOOO!".

So get practicing firing your lady cotton at moving rocket targets!

If you've still not signed up for epic.SIX and want to take one of the remaining spaces, head over to the booking page and signup!

Hunt the Bigfoot

Hunt the BigfootOn Friday afternoon at epic.SIX, we'll be releasing our Bigfoot into the wild.

At 4pm, we'll display the first clue, all you need to do is follow the clues to be the first one to find Bigfoot's Bling. The first one to return it to us will win a Killer 2100 Gaming Network Card.

The clues will be slightly cryptic, but a lot easier than the old epic.Hunt! Everyone will be racing at the same time to be the first get the card. Keep an eye on the event intranet for the first clue on Friday!

Desk Fans

In case it is a warm weekend, we are going to permit small desk fans on a trial basis at epic.SIX, allowing up to one per table (i.e. shared between 2 people). We will monitor the power situation to ensure it remains stable with the fans running.

Please come prepared for a warm venue!
