Hello Everyone! We are opening the Factorio Olympics signups today!

What is the Factorio Olympics?
The Factorio Olympics is a public, worldwide Factorio event where YOU, the player, are going to compete in different aspects of Factorio! There are 3 different activities for teams to compete in Speedrun, PvP and Production! For individual players, there’s solo speedruns as well as racing!

During the weekdays, we will have qualifying servers running 24h a day where you can try and try again to qualify. The best players will get to compete on the weekends where we organise, observe and stream the matches! You can find the weekend stream here: https://www.twitch.tv/factorio_olympics

What events are there?

This sounds like a really nice event. Thanks for organizing it! I just signed up, but I don't think I'll last long. :D

PS: I was a bit disappointed that I couldn't select "Factorio forums" in the last question. ;)
Mods: Shortcuts for 1.0, ick's vanilla tweaks
Text quickly seems cold and unfriendly. Be careful how you write and interpret what others have written.
- A reminder for me and all who read what I write.
