Shader Superfights/Heavyweight Grand Prix 2019

The bracket is filled, the organization is underway. It is an old-school knock out phase system with a wild card/alternate construction.

The first test match will be held in September or, possibly, a month later, at the Unity Copenhagen office on a Friday evening and streamed live. The test match will be between ReJ and Superplek. This is mostly for testing purposes, but we will have voting online and an idea for the result that I won't disclose yet. But it'll be fun and confusing.

Quarterfinals will thereafter be planned at demoparties whenever possible, and from there on we'll see. It will span from late 2018 until the very end of 2019.

I know not everybody appreciates Facebook so I'll post meaningful updates here. Coming first: the test match in Copenhagen, when and how to view it live: in a seat right there or from home.

Hope you appreciate it, (most of) the participants do and we'll go a bit off script to make it an event that's different than the great Shader Showdown - obviously the daddy of this whole idea.

Your truly,
- Niels

Oh? I didn't got that memo, I thought it was the same event. But I like this even better: it means more shader battles or as you called it Shader Superfights. This is a good thing. \0/

Still hope you'll bring back KB vsd Smash though.

Yes, very much so. Also funded.

Is it in association with Unity?

No it is not.

We have liftoff in a few months. The wildcard versus the loudmouth in a test match. It would be criminal to schedule of those other kids on the roster for a test flight.
