HCT Playoffs came to Prague once again! The Fall Playoffs took place on Sep 1 - 2, 2018 in Prague, at our traditional venue Café Majak. Again, we’ve raised the number of players choosing our location to fight for their place at Seasonal Championships. With a total of 33 players, we’ve happened to be the largest Playoffs event in Europe!
Here’s how the other venues stood:
Alphen aan den Rijn, the Netherlands - 29
Bergamo, Italy - 5
Kiev, Ukraine - 6
Moscow, Russia -14
We had players not only from Central Europe (Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Germany and Austria), but also Bulgaria, United Kingdom, Romania, Greece, Sweden, Denmark and others. The list of players included names such as RDU and Sjow. As with the previous playoffs, two out of four players qualifying for Seasonal Championships 2018 were in Prague. Congratulations to Sintolol and Moyen!
Apart from the number of players, we’ve also managed to improve the event itself. We tweaked the organization making the event proceed smoothly and based on feedback from the previous events, we’ve also included player’s comfort with better chairs. And last but not least, we’ve again provided a variety of refreshments including fruits, sandwiches, great coffee and homemade cakes.
You can see for yourself what did it look like at our venue during the event.
All in all, we are pleased to say that our event went smoothly and very keen for a very positive feedback from the players. However, we stay determined to seek ways to improve and give the players the best experience possible. We’ll be ready to show off with the next event, HCT Winter Playoffs taking place on Jan 12 - 13, 2019. See you there!
