The tournament Player won was my version of "Tournament of Champions" not a actual war2 festival event as it was the only tournament hosted that weekend. In the very beginning stages I was advertising it as one but decided to just make it the ToC instead. The idea behind it was that all past tournament champions were invited to compete in this invitational, as well as people who won my 8 player qualifying tournaments on each map heading up to the event. The idea of it I thought was exciting but not really a lot of champions showed up and I think I ended up letting others just fill the spots for a 16 player tournament.
The icon was never actually advertised, I think Player came with it afterwards and Mousetopher added it.
For now I think I am done labeling any tournaments as the Festival, and more just doing a series of big events in different months. We have the big $$ prize 2vs2 HUM/ORC vs HUM/ORC in June, a big $$ prize GoW 1vs1 tournament in July (when the festival would normally be the last weekend of July), and finally a GoW 2vs2 big $$ prize in December.
