We have a great announcement for participants today! I was recently provided enough Heroes of Newerth keys to supply every prepaid person up to our 40 person capacity with a key. Even if you have a key already we will provide you with a key (but limit 1 per person from us). If you are likely to attend our event we recommend you prepay. It costs less, gets you a key right away, enables you to pledge for tournaments (which increases prize pots), and helps us determine how many are sure to show up. We are currently working on the best way to distribute these keys, but if you simply cannot wait, just contact me directly through our forums and I'll message you the key (should you be prepaid of course). This is a perfect opportunity to not only try this fantastic game out, but it also offers practice to those who are trying to get ready for our coming tournament.

As the event approaches we are continually working to make sure everything goes off smashingly. Furthermore, we look for new opportunities. For this coming event we are arranging for there to be food services on-site. The food services will primarily focus around proper food and some snacks. The menu and pricing are not yet finalized, but here is a glimpse into what we are looking at so far.

Core dishes:
-Mac and cheese
-Cheddar cheese smokies
-Chicken caesar wrap
-Grilled ham and cheese
-Mini pizzas

Snacks:
-Candy
-Pop
-Chips

As for seating, we're running out of it! we only have about 16 spots left, so if you're thinking of coming then sign up. If you want to ensure you have a seat at the event, prepay. All prepaid attendees are guaranteed seats, otherwise it is first-come first-served. If you do prepay, don't forget to pledge the tournaments you want to enter too. Pledging costs nothing (but is only available to prepaid attendees) and results in larger prize pots.

As the event is approaching even closer we are working on finalizing all the elements. As such we have calculated the estimated maximum times of the HoN and TF2 tournaments. While the HoN tournament could potentially result in a drastically longer tournament than TF2 (at maximum numbers) we are seeing more interest in TF2. As such we will be having the TF2 tournament on Saturday at 2pm, and the HoN tournament on Sunday at noon. If interest in HoN explodes, we will have the first half of the HoN tournament on Saturday (TBD, but after TF2) and the second half on Sunday, likely to continue at noon.

So, to re-iterate

TF2: Saturday 2pm
HoN: Sunday Noon (unless interest explodes)


Since the event is coming up real fast, we will be closing prepay this coming Saturday (February 27th) at 10pm. If you are sure you are coming we recommend you prepay while you still have the opportunity. If you or someone you know who is trying to prepay and is having technical difficulties with our site or paypal we advise you contact us immediately to correct any issues, best to post on the forums. It is also worth noting that our TF2 tournament is only 3 pledges away from hitting the 15 person threshold for the $150 prize pot, so don't forget to pledge for the tournaments you want to enter.

Hope to see you there!
