ACRONYM Online Championship: May 8, 2021

Post by InvadErGII »

Play Quiz Bowl is pleased to announce the ACRONYM Online Championship, to be held on Saturday, May 8. This will be using the ACRONYM 14 set (which a few of you may have already played, so if you have, this is not for you).

TOURNAMENT INFO

Games will be held on Zoom, and will begin at about 9am on Saturday the 8th and will continue into the mid-to-late afternoon. As long as both open and high school registrations are sufficient, we will run two divisions. Players will be expected to have cameras on, and we are considering further measures to prevent potential cheating.

REGISTRATION

Registration is $90 per team. You can sign up here.

STAFF

If you'd like to staff this event, you can sign up here. Please be sure to indicate whether or not you have access to a Pro Zoom account, as we'll need to know that for logistics purposes.

Here's the field as of this afternoon. If you still need to register, please do so ASAP (especially if you're a high school team)! I'll be shutting registration down by this time next week.

The field spreadsheet link doesn't work; it says the file does not exist.

I can't see the field Google doc anymore. Is it still open then?
It's a movement now!

What's the expected format of this/how long can we expect the event to run? Need to know to figure out if I'll be able to play.

I would say expect 8-10 rounds for all teams, though with this number of teams a single-elim playoff bracket isn't out of the question. I'll be closing registration tomorrow night and will finalize the schedule shortly afterwards.

Also - I am in still in significant need of moderators. If you're available this weekend to read some fun packets, please sign up here.

Gonna make one more call for staffers before making the schedule this evening - we're still a good number of staffers short for tomorrow. If you're interested in staffing, you can sign up here. We're paying $30 per staffer.
