Here’s a heads up on what’s on the staff’s collective mind for EVO2k3. These are our primary goals for improvement over last year. If you think something is missing, give a hollah.
Better time management:
In general we want to make better use of time. By putting players in pools, you will know roughly when you play, and will therefore not have to wait around the ballroom all day and look for your opponents.
Better coverage of prelims:
For the prelims, we want to have multiple matches projected onto screens, and let people know who’s playing on them. Ideally most of the high profile prelim matches will be shown this way. There are several technical issues that have to be resolved here, but we think we’ve got a handle on them.
I think most people at EVO2k2 enjoyed the theater-style format of the finals. We want to turn this into more of a show, with player introductions, etc. We also want to provide expert analysis since many players won’t be familiar with all the different games this year.
More cool giveaways:
We want to do something even cooler than the cards last year. If you have any inexpensive ideas, fire away. We’d like to give everyone a car, but get real.
