Hope we can pick up a game here and there. :grimacing:


#625

I was told we were in the ‘really difficult’ side of the draw. Hopefully we can knock a team or two off.


#626

I saw the team is using RMIT’s Vietnam campus as their base. Interesting confluence of EFC partnerships.


#627

Anyone watching it tomorrow? ill be streaming from home, but was thinking of heading in GG in the citty


#628

I plan to stroke my beard and nod sagely when I see the results posted here.


#629

I might get to watch the first set of games, but I’ll just have to dream the last couple.


#630

FTFY, … :wink:


#631

How fair is the umpiring in this sport ?


#632

Well, the rules are hard coded into the games software so there’s no room for interpretation. I think we’ll be fine, you could say its logic is black and white… wait… oh… oh no. PLAY ON!


#633

I grew a neck beard for the occasion.


#634

Just an update, our first game tomorrow is now at 7, theyve had to move a few days games around due to 2 days of mourning in Vietnam.

would love to have hit up GG to watch this, but I’ve just moved to Adelaide, no esports bars here yet…


#635

Would it be correct to make the assumption that this change moves all the games forward 1 hour?


#636

To put the viewership into context for everyone who doesnt know much, there are currently 5,000 people streaming the games, and it doesnt start for 15 minutes. I expect it to hit 20k or near for this group stage active online


#637

How do I watch… how do I watch.


#638

It’s at 33,000 views now


#639

22k viewers already~!


#640

Sorry I mean 33,000 views on Twitch at the moment.


#641

So, with multiple viewing platforms provided by streaming the numbers could be at 50k??


#642

not a good start, going too hard too rarly
