My team already knows that we will be attending this LAN, but we are starting to second guess wether it will be worth it or not. We are planning on attending for Black Ops, and there is still no actual mention of what gametype or prizes, other then a raffle. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

We will definitely be having a CoD BO tournament , however I don't think it will have any prizes this time around. The main tournaments we will have prizes for are Team Fortress 2 , Starcraft 2 and Battlefield Bad Company 2. However if we get more prizes we can possibly delegate them to the winners of the CoD BO tournament. At this point in time we do not have a prize list, but as vendors send us things we will have an idea of what they will be :D . Hope this helps

If you do decide to change your mind and make BO your primary game advertise in #blackops    TONS of teams would come and your event would be very large...

The swap would be a good idea, BC2 was so 1 week after release.

At this time, we are happy to announce that, due to popular demand, Call of Duty: Black Ops will now be an official tournament at the Atlanta LAN. We are still settling up the final tournament details, so if you guys have any input, hurry along and let us know. Black Ops WILL be replacing our BC2 tournament (sorry BC2 players), although we will still have BC2 as a scrip type/for fun game. HOWEVER, we still wont know our prizes for this even untill a few weeks out, and again, the only way to guarentee good ones is to have tons and tons of people register. So now that we will offer Black Ops as an official, prize-winning tournament, wont you please, please sign-up (for those who have already- thank you) to attend the Atlanta LANFest? We still have 4 more spots left in that "First 50" triple raffle deal! :)

Can we get more than a 4 round win limit? Maybe like first to 13/best of 24? Maybe a 5 second plant and 7.5 second defuse? Just ideas...

edit: I've actually been having trouble getting that round set with the rcon tool. Seems like the most you can do is 7 per side, 8 to win, so best of 14.

I just noticed you said HARDCORE ?, your really going to loose alot of interest from the competitive call of duty players. Personally after noticing this and seeing the "Round Win Limit: 4 Rounds", I do not want to play in this event anymore. Maybe ill still come and play in the games that are for fun.


->EDIT:: Also if you haven't already you might wanna consider disabling perks and attachments most of the competitive gamers are playing "barebones" as close as we can get to the cod4 pro mod, without an actual mod. There are plenty of server configs already out that do exactly this.

->EDIT 2.0:: Most scrims we have played in no one wants you to use Decoys, Stuns, shottys, thats all i can think of at the moment.

Even if we have to use perks and attachments please reconsider your "HARDCORE" idea.

Hardcore????? Please do not run hardcore! I agree with the person that posted above me that everyone who is playing in competition is playing barebones. Please reconsider this decision. Thank you for considering our ideas to make this LAN a great time.

Sounds like a barrel of fun, i forgot to mention, please add no equipment to your list, and no attachements, attachments can go either way, but without perks having equipment with no perks, theres gonna be a clay around everycorner and bomb site and we wont be able to select a perk to see clays, so no perks and no equipment kinda go hand an hand. 

Anyone else have thoughts on having.
