I am posting to regretfully inform y’all that we’ll be cancelling the Pokemon Go Tournament. Like you, we were very excited about the event and were in the final stages of our preparation. However, recent changes in the applications and a crazy huge drop in popularity for the game has forced us to cancel the event.
Events like these require a decent number of people to make everything challenging and fun. We had enough interest in the beginning, but based on recent customer input and general interest expressed, we’re not certain we’ll be able to get enough people out to meet those requirements.
If anybody else wants to take up the reigns and run an event, we’d be happy to provide you with any of the information/rules/scoring that we have put together. As well as any advice on running them, as we ran/participated in a number of events for Ingress (PoGo’s dad).
TL;DR Pokemon cancelled, all Trumps’ fault!
