At the World Tour event, the ROG OC Showdown Area is a separate part of the venue, featuring its own branding and of course hooked up to our livestream system. The goal is to broadcast the World Record, Global First Place, and Hardware First Place results as they come in. For this purpose, we have four seats available during the ROG OC Showdown Area for participants to attempt to set the best results. Since there are more than four people attending the event, you need to reserve a time slot for your attempt. The available time slots are:

June 6, 2PM - 6PM: 4 seats
June 6, 10PM - June 7, 2AM: 4 seats
June 7, 6AM - 10AM: 4 seats
June 7, 2PM - 6PM: 4 seats[/list]

To reserve a time slot, please send an email to xyala@hwbot.org. Please include your nickname, which time slots you would prefer, and when you arrive and leave the event. In case there are slots not taken, we will allow multiple time slots per person. Hint: it's quite likely that the top-bin hardware will be supplied at the ROG OC Showdown Area *wink*.
