Thanks to everyone who showed up and participated in our Extra Life event, we hope everyone enjoyed themselves! Overall we've raised $2,254 for our local Sanford Children's Hospital with the help of the community.
If you're wondering what's up with the Minecraft server it's whitelist only until Bukkit is updated and we can get everything setup for the new map. Sorry for the wait, it's taking a lot longer than expected.
We're excited to announce our first big money tournament. On April 28th at 11 AM we'll be holding a 5-vs-5 Summoner's Rift tournament at the FM Big Boys Toys Expo in the Fargodome. The cash prize for first place is $400 and second place is $200. This tournament is also sponsored by Riot Games so winners will receive riot points, the exclusive Triumphant Ryze skin, and Champion Skin Bundles. Due to the limited time of the Expo we'll be running this event as a singe elimination tournament.
To participate in this event you need to pre-register AND pre-pay. The entry fee is $20 per person, which also covers entry into the Big Boys Toys Expo.
Thanks to everyone who showed up to our Starcraft II and League of Legends tournaments this month, we had a great turnout for both of these events. We'll be planning future tournaments within the next month or two for all of those who missed out last time so keep an eye out on the Section 9 Facebook or website.
Make sure you drop by and check out our three new amazing titles: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (GOTY Anyone?), Battlefield 3 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. We also have The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword on the way so keep an eye out for that.
Congratulations to the winners of our Starcraft II tournament.
Also congratulations to team For Narnia, IDK and People's Champions for the League of Legends 5-vs-5 Summoners Rift Tournament. Everyone played well and I hope you enjoyed playing in it as much as we enjoyed hosting it.

If you've been playing on our Minecraft server then you are aware that it has been down for a while. We've been changing around some stuff with our network and internet infrastructure. Sorry about the inconvenience, we'll try to get it back up as soon as we can.
We also have some brand new additions to our library: ICO / Shadow of the Colossus HD bundle and Batman: Arkham City. These games look great and have gotten amazing reviews so make sure you give them a try.
