If you want competition and good teams to attend you're going to have to look further than people who live in PA. People aren't going to drive all that way and spend $60-$100 in gas and then sort out a hotel, food, or whatever the additional expenses are on top of a $100 entry fee per person. Spending $100-$300 to play in a tournament you might not win is the reason why the turnout if going to be low. If you can't lower the fee so be it. I'll be attending anyway, but you're not going to get nearly the amount of teams you want.

So on the tournament page it says that general admission starts at 12 but before then only early lan payers can enter but the tourney starts at 9:30. If we buy a basic seat and register for the go tournament do we also get in early for it or do we have to pay for the early access option in order to compete?

Be happy and rejoice for I will be your end :)

#82 right now there is one team fully paid up and 2 others with one person on each team. so thats 7 slots. what happens if by the time (lets just pretend) 4 more teams sign up the rest of the GXL tickets are sold out...so thats 4-6 teams for this lan that already paid up but theres no more room for any other teams...this just seems so dumb. i would like to see a ***** "we have 80 seats reserved to be allocated to the CSGO tournament" ***** not trying to be a debbie downer or nething this just seems like a fairly large issue that is being overlooked. unless im misunderstanding something.
