Thursday: 5pm - 9pm MST (GMT-7): Minecraft King of the Hill

We are hosting a brand new King of the Hill event featuring Minecraft pvp. The rules and format are not yet finalized, but this is welcome to anyone. The rules will probably fall along the same lines of the Starcraft 2 KotH. Do not worry, we havn't forgotten about our build fest world, but we are re-working the format for it, it's fair to expect it to return in some fashion. We will present how to join this event during the broadcast, or earlier if possible on our site. So keep checking back to our site for updates.

As for our coming LANified! 9: Batter Up event, there are some things we want to cover.

First, in terms of pledging prizing unlocks. As you may know the prizing increases as enough people pledge for particular tournaments (you pledge on the page for the specific event in-case you didn't). However something we can't present nicely just yet is that when these new prize pools unlock they will not just go to the first place contestant, but they will be split between first and second place. To elaborate:

For Starcraft 2 the step up prize pool will be:
1st place: $220
2nd place: $100

For Team Fortress 2 the step up prize pool will be:
1st place: $210
2nd place: $90

Second, our early-bird prepay will be ending midnight Friday night of this week. To clarify it ends 00:01 Saturday May 7th 2011. Currently our prepay is $40, but afterwards the prepay will bump up to $50. We will still be taking prepayments after this point. As such we recommend that you take advantage of the early-bird pricing while it's still available! If you are having difficulties with any step of the way, give us a shout on the forums and we'll work our hardest to help you with whatever problems you may have.

Third, we've been putting up quite a few posters, and are constantly looking for new locations, but we sometimes miss good locations. Do you know of some worthwhile locations? Let us know! Post on our facebook page: or on our forums:

There's plenty happening and boy are we excited to bring it all to you. If you know of any other people who would enjoy our events, don't hesitate to spread the word. It really helps us, and helps you have a great time too. To sign up or prepay for our LAN party head to the event details at:
