CC 2024 Announcement

The Corona challenge (CC) is back on VASL, in a slightly different format.

CC 2024 will be held in two groups (the HtH group and the Melee group, see below), and a player can choose to participate in only one of the two groups. The winner of each group will then meet in the Super-final.

You will play three rounds: One round each from the PTO, DTO and ETO. In each round you are paired with an opponent, and play one scenario chosen from a list of three. Each round will have a maximum playing time of 2–3 months, so the schedule should not be too taxing.

  • Round 1: April 1st–May 31st
  • Round 2: June 1st–August 31st
  • Round 3: September 1st–October 31st
  • Super-final: November 1st–December 31st

CC 2024 is a friendly tournament open by invitation only. If you have a friend who you would like to recommend for invitation, please contact Øyvind.

The tournament fee for CC2024 is NOK 100, EUR 10, USD 10 or DKK 70. The tournament fee covers a prize for the winner.

To participate, please contact Øyvind at oyvind@bjorkas.no no later than March 23rd.
