This is something that has been in the works by Paul676 (he's from HD for those of you who don't know him) for a while, but is finally in a finalised state to be worth announcing here without having to repost the info nearer the time (though I accept this is a bit short notice for a lot of people). The Info The UK Tetris Open will be taking place from 2pm-9pm on 21st July 2012 at Gamerbase in the Trocadero in Piccadilly, London. Here's the website, updated with the ruleset: http://www.uktetrisopen.co.cc/ It will be on Tetris Friends Arena. Seeding will be for the top 16 by Tetris Friends Sprint time. It is planned to be a 64-player bracket, with 16 groups of 4 whereupon the top 2 in each group go forward (UEFA Champions League style) to a single elimination tournament with playoffs for the top 8 positions. There will be a sign-up fee of 10 pounds (roughly $15). All profit will go to Childreach International Please direct any enquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org The Prizes You didn't think you'd be forced to pay £10 to play Tetris Friends without some sort of reward, right? There are actually some fucking good prizes on offer here, courtesy of sponsorship from Corsair: 1st prize: Corsair Vengeance K90 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard 2nd prize: Corsair Vengeance K60 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard 3rd Prize: Corsair Vengeance 1300 Gaming Headset Giveaway to be chosen out of a hat: Ticket for 1 day of play at Gamerbase The headset is pretty good, and both keyboards are mechanical and use red Cherry MX switches. I already own a Filco and I definitely wouldn't mind either of the top two prizes. And really, the best thing of all? I'll be there. Me. So come, and stuff.
