UPDATE!

Hello everyone, due to unforeseen circumstances Chuu has had to relinquish hosting duties for the Overpower Championships. This means a changeover. Jack and I have discussed options and will have new information for you as soon as possible.

There will be a change up in the entry fees and prizing structure, which we will confirm soon.

The date is fixed and will not change, though there will not be a Friday event this time.

I will post updated information soon.

Thanks guys!

no ALCS game 7, so i'll be there :(

if anyone is interested, I'm offering my services again as a mercenary.  You pay the fee and pick the team, and take any prizes.

I can use my own team too, but that didn't work out so well for the backer last time

you can reply here, or through PM if interested
