After many years of procrastination and broken promises, gaiia is finally ready to host some more icon_cpma CPM tournaments. I hereby present to you:

Meow! Meow! Space Tiger (FFA) &
Penguin Marlin Brando (Duel) Tournaments!

The events will commence at 17:00 UTC, 19 Nov 2022 and 17:00 UTC, 20 Nov 2022 respectively.

To sign up for either one of these events, head on over to the icon_discord Official CPMA Discord and request the admins or myself (gaiia#2491) to give you access to the tournament channel.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Communication regarding the event will take place exclusively on icon_discord Discord. Message gaiia or any of the admins for access to the tournament channel. Presence In the channel is mandatory to ensure admins/referees/staff can reach participants when needed.

I'm glad you asked. I plan on participating in both tournaments myself alongside hosting them, and any volunteer help would be greatly appreciated for the following tasks:
  1. Streaming: Whether it's your POV, spectating others or a full out event coverage with casting, it doesn't matter. Simply put, more streams = better. Let me know if you're planning on streaming the event and I'll add your stream to the list.
  2. Admin/Referee work: Admining the events all by myself is doable for sure, but any willing extra pairs of eyes and hands are most welcome. Help with these will make the events run smoother, quicker and with less errors.
  3. Social media management: This one is rather straightforward. Like, retweet, subscribe, you name it. Feel free to spread the icon_cpma CPM love along in your socials. Who knows, maybe that elusive 18th CPM player stumbles upon this event...

If you simply cannot wait to watch some icon_cpma CPM action, you should tune in to watch the first AFPS Finland LAN Coverage this upcoming weekend at icon_twitch Kainalo's stream.

The event will have tournaments in Diabotical on Friday, followed by CPM and Quake Champions on Saturday. The event has a focus more towards having fun and getting together instead of tryharding. The stream provided will be predominantly in Finnish.

If you have any questions regarding the events, please don't hesitate to ask gaiia#2491 on Discord.
