Wrestlemania 33 Orlando Tournament
« on: June 29, 2016, 08:34:39 PM »
Hey everyone, in light of Wrestlemania 33 being held in Orlando next year on April 2nd, I'm looking to organize a tournament event with the Top Prizes being tickets to Wrestlemania.

The current plan is a two day event with the following formats: Virtual Classic, Virtual AA and Virtual Revolution. The top winners of each format winning a ticket to Wrestlemania 33. Other prizes would include Backstage Autograph Session's, uniquely signed by a Superstar, GRA's, and Title Belts, sponsored by VelaCards.

Currently "where" the event will take place is being decided. Cool Stuff Games, a local shop here in Orlando is willing to accommodate the event for up to 200 players. Though I realize the majority of the player base is outside of Florida, this is an effort to bring Raw Deal back into the community. The player base is limited but I'm sure those of us that still play can make some noise with this event.

A tournament held online on Lackey is being considered. There is tons of stuff to do during Wrestlemania week, Hall of Fame, Fan Axcess, NXT Orlando and even the Raw after Mania.

I invite players from all over the world to join us!

I'd possibly be interested in this if Lackey will be used.

Though a tournament of that caliber will take A LOT of organizing for lackey (which I'll gladly help with if need be since I run them on a regular basis) I would be all over this. I even would consider Orlando for such a huge prize of an event if it was legit happening

I love the timing and the concept here (not to mention it's around six months away from Gen Con, so it spaces out the big events....and actually gives what would be a true "World Championship" since the international folk could get involved).....definitely interested here!

I don't care how this gets settled, I'd just love to see this happen.  ;)

I get the whole Lackey deal and how it "opens the door" for more players who can't travel, but we don't do that for Gen Con events, so why this? The idea of this is to get people "together" and play, and why not at the largest wrestling event of the year? 10s of thousands of wrestling fans are going to be in Orlando that week. What an opportunity to gather players and maybe even get NEW players involved.

As for why would you travel all the way to Orlando and not already have a ticket ... Good question. How about you buy a ticket any ways, show up and play, WIN an event that gets you another ticket and sell that other ticket? Maybe the one you just won is better than the one you bought? I don't know!  :o

Any ways ... I just would like to see something like this happen. I'm all up for it and will treat it like a World Championship type of event and fully prize support it like Gen Con. Organizers ... figure this s$%t out and lmk.  ;)

In that case, why would someone travel there two times unless they were local?

Plus I would think with all the events the WWE puts on (takeover tickets would be sweet though), you'd have to run this event on the Tuesday or Wednesday before Mania, just to let people fully enjoy the experience

Or, you know, all the other events run during Wrestlemania weekend.  NXT Takeover, whatever other ROH etc. events are on...
