East Coast Throwdown 2 was one of the craziest tournaments we’ve ever experienced, and not just because we organized it. The energy in that ballroom was really something else. Joe and I are really proud of the progress we’ve made thus far in organizing these events, and we’re really pleased with what we have in store for this year.

The venue has changed, but it is still in Morristown, NJ. The new venue is the Hyatt Morristown which is very close to the old venue, but in a completely different environment. There are TONS of places to eat within walking distance of this hotel (like 3 minute walks out the front door, VIEWABLE from your hotel room window). Joe and I have eaten at The Office bar and grill and their food and atmosphere is really good. Definitely a spot to hit up after the tournament ends to unwind. Here’s the scoop on the hotel:

Hyatt Morristown
3 Speedwell Avenue
Morristown, NJ 07960
(973) 647-1234

=====MASS TRANSIT INFORMATION!!!=====

To get to the hotel using mass transit, please take the Morristown Train Line from Penn Station in New York to the Morristown line.

===========================

ROOMS CAN BE BOOKED!!

Turns out, however, that ECT3 is too hype to contain everyone in one hotel. We’ve booked every single room in the Hyatt Morristown that was available our weekend and sold the place out. Please visit the link below to our website to see alternate hotels within 1 mile of our venue. Do, however, try the Hyatt Morristown link on that page as there could be a cancellation that opened up a room for you.

===========================

Venue fee will be $25 Pre-Registered. $35 At The Door

We wasted hours last year doing registration at the door, causing major delays and pushing every side game back to Sunday, which was completely unacceptable. We are enforcing online pre-registration this year in order to prevent this from happening again. If you choose not to pre-register through the website, your entry to the tournament is not guaranteed. If the bracket for a game is determined to be 512 and all 512 spots are filled, we will not be creating a larger bracket. Pre-register online to ensure entry into the tournaments you want to play in.

PRE-REGISTRATION ENDS JUNE 19. REGISTER HERE!

#8

Congrats man and Best of Luck, would love to make it this year but I will be in Sweden during that time. Any Promo Support from CEO you need and it’s yours.


#9

Noooo AC would have killed me.:sad:


#10

OHHH another year. First I would like to say sorry for all the AC hype that was created for this years ect. John and I were really trying to make it happen. With the tournaments around the same time, room availability and a few other factors, AC just wasn’t possible this year. We are shooting for it in 2012.

A few announcements will trickle out for the next few weeks or so. The first post will be updated often. This one might seem a bit obvious. Our good friends at Team Sp00ky will be providing the stream this year. We all know how they work, and play for that matter. We are honored to have them along for the ride this year.

Later on tonight we will post our final game roster for this years ect. Just gotta confirm a few things.
