After the success Midland Warfare was last year, I have decided to up the ante on all fronts. Bigger venue, bigger pot bonus, actual working stream, and even more community direct love. The idea of this tournament in the first place was to give our community a tournament where they're taken care of first and foremost instead of a last ditch add-on and I'll do whatever possible to make this the cornerstone that this community needs. What I need to make this a smash success is the players. Chicago has been supporting from day one and this year is no different. Hawkeye, LostProvidence, FenrisZero, and possibly a guest of interest will be in attendence. What we need is other communities to support as well so we can have the major we all deserve.

If you have questions on travel, here is the rundown... Get in contact with me, if you're flying you can fly into Lincoln (more expensive, closer to the venue) or Omaha (cheaper but further out), our community can shuttle players to and from the venue within reason. The key here is contacting me if you're flying in so you can be well taken care of.

Other than that, I hope to see you all in September.

My advice is this...there is already a strong, living memory of a SC cornerstone event. It happened four years after sc4's release. Follow it. Fix it. Perfect it. We have not had a truly definitive SC event before or after it. You are in the perfect position to fill that spot next year, which means constructing the hype train at this year's event.

That said, good luck to all the competitors.
