Welcome to Hypespotting 6

This is it, the return of the biggest fighting game event in the UK!

On the 15th and 16th April 2017 at the Hilton Hotel in central Glasgow, we’re taking the most hype event around to new levels. In its sixth straight year, Hypespotting continues to grow and innovate, and in this next instalment, will feature a number of new additions and exciting developments. Of course, as always, Hypespotting presents the best of competitive fighting game action, with nine awesome tournaments taking place including:

As well as invading the entire main hall in the Hilton on both days, we will also be featuring our largest seller and stalls market to date, with guest artists and lots of awesome swag on offer.

A brand new addition to the Hypespotting line-up is Affro’s Arcade! Alongside our friends at We Throw Switches, Steel City Clash, and Turbo Tuesdays Kirkcaldy, just a few steps away from the main hall, it will host a fantastic selection of arcade style and indie games for everyone to enjoy. Plus, there will even be extra room for anyone wishing to bring along their own setup and take the challenge to the community!

With players descending on Glasgow from all over the UK, Europe, and beyond, you know that the competition will be seriously fierce!

Nowhere is that more apparent than at the legendary Hypespotting Pub Quiz! Our regular quizmasters are back to test your mental match-ups, as your team fights to win epic prizes!

  • Estou tentado a ir a isto.
    Assim por alto, ir 6ª e voltar 2ª (voos com escala, total de 8h para cada lado +-), preço total da brincadeira deve ir para os 400€.
    Alguém interessado em alinhar?
  • Eu este ano quero ir a 1 viagem do PTF, nunca fui, tenho algum dinheiro guardado e a vida é para ser vivida.

    Haha, that's the spirit! xD

    Tbh ainda não tenho planos nenhuns para este ano e não sei se as datas deste Hypespotting são ideais para mim, but we'll see.

    Acho que alinho nisso, é um dos que me falta na checklist.
  • Daquilo que eu sei este é dos torneios que mais vale a pena ir. O ambiente é bastante Lockdown-ish, tudo muito familiar (apesar de ser muito maior) e há sempre hype de sobra.
    A parte chata é ser carote e as viagens serem grandes e com escalas.
  • Eu curtia bué ir mesmo. Tem KI e tudo. O bilhete de entrada, os 35 pounds, é p/ entrar em kk número de torneios nos dois dias, pelo k percebi?

    Ou ainda haverá alguma fee por cada torneio?

    Os voos k vi rondam os 180€ o mais barato. Estadia, pesquisaste algo, @obake?
  • O bilhete é 30£ e depois é mais 10£ por cada torneio que queiras entrar.

    Estadia há sitios de varios tipos, tens barato e fraco, caro e bom, etc. Ha alternativas de todos os tipos pelo que vi.
    Mas vá:
    200€ viagem
    50€ inscrições
    150€ alojamento

    fora o resto.
  • segundo as minhas fontes o proximo sonic boom é 15 dias antes deste, e ao sonic boom sera muito mais facil e barato ir, alem de que gostava de ir retribuir a esse pessoal o favor que fazem de virem ao lockdown sempre.
  • Ui, então nesse caso, preferia o Sonic Boom exatamente pelas mesmas razões...
  • Também preferia ir ao SB, to a dever isso ao Rivarsal.
  • Digam coisas, se forem eu pondero ir também ou então, poupamos todos dinheiro : >
  • Também estou a ponderar ir a um torneio fora...

    Há que mostrar ao mundo o que é ser um scrub em condições B)
  • @Obake já existe + informação sobre o SB sem ser data?
  • digos said:

    @Obake já existe + informação sobre o SB sem ser data?

    não, mas estou a trabalhar nisso.
