NXT Starcraft 2 tournament. APPROVED (Cancelled)

-----------------------------Submission date-----------------------------
31 March, 2014
-----------------------------Short description-----------------------------
Market NXT to the starcraft 2 community VIA a starcraft 2 event in order to educate them on NXT and hopefully expand the userbase of NXT.

-----------------------------Long description-----------------------------
I have previously with help from Uniqueorn put on a starcraft 2 showmatch with a 25,000 NXT prize pool between Ret and Whitera which unfortunately ended in a clean sweep for Ret but it still managed to reach over 6300 unique viewers with a peak of 1431 concurrent watching live on the stream.

The objective of this event would be to put on a much more extensive event, A 16 person event taking place over two days similar to the recently concluded vasacast invitational which managed to keep an audience of 16,000-20,000 live concurrent viewers throughout the majority of the event in several languages. The goal would be to put on an event similar to the Vasacast invitational hopefully reaching tens of thousands of people around the world and educating them what NXT is in hopefully as many languages as possible.

-----------------------------Target Audience-----------------------------
Starcraft 2 fans mostly aged 18-30
-----------------------------Budget-----------------------------
80,000 Going to the prize pool, Paying the casters for there work, And Marketing materials such as promotional images. We could shoot for a smaller event if you dont want to go for this size of an event though.

-----------------------------Deadline-----------------------------
I would like to plan on shooting for the end of april/early may although it may have to be delayed in order to prevent scheduling conflicts with other events.


Edit, due to the delay it would have to be mid to late may in order to get everything organized in time and get everything finalized in order to make sure it all goes smoothly.

-----------------------------Metrics-----------------------------
Viewership from the streams on twitch.tv and the VOD viewership from the VOD's on youtube with specific statistics taken from the analysis tools built into twitch.tv to get total unique viewers and everything else.

Edit, This is the thread from the showmatch with links to the VOD's. http://www.teamliquid.net/forum/sc2-tournaments/443331-nxt-starcraft-showmatch

Yes, there are some pretty good sized professional starcraft leagues not only in korea but also around the world with the global WCS event and alot of smaller events around the globe. But yes korea is still a huge competitor in the starcraft scene.

Would be happy to answer any questions you may have. Also as i said the budget can be pretty flexible and we could do almost any kind of event if you wouldn't want to do a 2 day invitational tournament. We could do a weekly king of the hill event or possibly something along the lines of trial of the xel'naga which was a pretty successful event meant for pure fun instead of people competing all out in a more serious event for a large prize pool.

I like this, because it could appeal to a large group.

However, I would like a very firm and clear plan on how we get this known.

The last contest was great, *I hear*, but I have seen nothing but the promo and as far as I know nothing else came from it.

Can you tell us how the people involved felt like it? Did we get people interested in Nxt? Are some of these people still here?

I am at least looking to learn from past experiences here. What is you opinion on the value of this and how can we maximise exposure?

In theory this can be fun and BIG. How can we make sure it actually is?

My current plan would be to announce players in two announcements both of them announcing 8 players giving us more exposure on the front pages of the starcraft fansites. This would put us on the front page of reddit.com/r/starcraft for more then one day maximizing the exposure for the event and fueling more discussion on it creating more hype for the event. The players would also put it announce it on there social network accounts putting it in front of there fan bases. The players we invite would be well known players in order to maximize the exposure on that front.

After that we would mostly wait for the event day, Then on the event day on teamliquid the event would be on the sidebar showing that its on air and with links to all the currently live streams. And on reddit there will be a thread up in order to remind people over there that the event is taking place.

We could potentially do a announcement video if anyone is good at video editing in order to make more hype for the event.

Im not sure what you mean by nothing else came from it. If you are referencing the event its self then everything happened that was planned. If you could elaborate on what you mean then it would be appreciated.

The players involved were pretty interested into NXT. One of them is in it for the long haul and the other wanted to cash out.

The casters had no interest in learning crypto currencies so they both cashed out.

I personally think that this holds alot of potential in order to grow the NXT community or at the very least get NXT into the minds of tens of thousands of people. In order to maximize exposure we would mainly due what i described in response to your first question.

One thing in order to maximize the amount of people coming into NXT would be stuff such as 30 second to one minute ads we could play during down time explaining some of the advantages of NXT and what NXT is.

hi,

would you include a report, like: http://bostonherald.com/entertainment/lifestyle/2014/04/call_of_duty_championship_shows_power_of_esports ?

thanks


So try and get reporters to cover the event? I would try to but no guarantees as its not really my area of expertise. I could do a post mortem of it myself though.

TeamWealth: well, sure you can try, but I was asking for a text report about the tournament - you could simply post it to this forum and to gaming forums. We can do the distribution and contacting journalists then, but we need to have that text :)

Ok, wasn't sure on what you meant by that. So basically a post mortem covering all the details of the event and how successful it was? Sure i can do that. I would put it on the teamliquid blog section and this forum, put up a post on reddit linking to it and also putting up the same post from teamliquid on here.

This is essentially what I meant by "not knowing what became of it".

A post-mortem would be very nice :)

Ok, i will get one written up if we put this event on and after i get all the relevant data so probably a few days after its conclusion. But the showmatch that was put on i really did not do any post mortem or anything else to answer your question damelon.

If you watched or even organized a first starcraft event, then a post-mortem report about the first showmatch would be useful too

No matter. I'd rather look to what we cán do in the future, than gripe about the past :)

I'd like to add that this isn't just about sponsoring / hosting a event.
The casters actually did broadcast the message and all the important intel about NXT to the 6000+ viewers several times during the hours that the showmatch ran.

We would also have been able to get more media coverage if there was funds for this. We BARELY got 25K for this huge event (whens the last time over 6K people who had never heard of NXT learned of NXT last time?) after I had to fight with salsa for days for it.
I even had to pay TeamWealth from my own money for the tremendous effort he put into it.

QBTC also stepped up with graphics.


So I guess my conclusion is: if people would've actually listened and salsacz had shut the fuck up then events like this would already have been the norm.

it's a problem if you ask for 15k and then you demand 25k

No remember how our logs showed differently ?
Remember how the funds were from both Neer.g and Hash for this?

What you were complaining about was that there was additional costs (Organization and Casters) which I had tried to explain to you for weeks, which you dismissed as "spam" and "a wall of text" because you are so incompetent that I barely fathom how you are even capable of using a computer.

Then afterwards you used this SUCCESFUL event as a part of your smear campaign against me. Randomly saying out of context "25K NXT on Showmatch and no report!?" in an attempt to get the community against it. This was AFTER I had provided you all the facts of viewership, the vods and how shit went down.
You are a clown and should not be a part of this decision at all, go back to writing articles and paying yourself.


*EDIT*

Anyway, I am not going to waste more time or derail this thread.
I just want people to understand why the last event, which was a success, wasn't even better covered and also why the additional costs exist.
Organizing this + casters + graphics actually cost time and money.

250.000 readers of http://www.scribd.com/doc/214163135/Nxt-in-Outperform-Magazine - it cost about 900 Nxt

I understand this is a HIGHLY charged issue.
However, I would like to ask not to do this in this thread, please.

Edit: thank you :)
