Over the past year we've had quite a few requests to organize and run a Dota 2 tournament. However because we're unsure of the size of the community who would be interested. Now that Dota 2 has been released to the public for quite some time we believe now is a good time to properly gauge people's interest. Ideally we'd have around eight teams total in a double elimination style tournament so that's the number of signups we're looking for in order to deem the tournament feasible.
Below you'll find a sign up sheet where you can register a team. This isn't for an actual tournament but simply to gauge how many five-man teams we would have interested in a future tournament.
Thanks you everyone for participating in our February 22nd League of Legends tournament. Everything went pretty smoothly despite server stability problems. The eight team limited that was imposed may be a one time thing, but make sure you register in advance next time so your team is guaranteed a spot! Here are the final results:
Is your computer running slow? Are you having issues with pop-ups? Suspect you may have a virus?
For a limited time we're offering $45.00 computer tune-ups for your desktop or laptop computer. We'll optimize your startup, optimize running services, clean temporary files and the registry, make overall performance tweaks, remove adware or bloatware, and check for and remove viruses. This is a $60.00+ value that we're offering for only $45.00 until March 20th. To take advantage of this offer simply mention this page when you're dropping your computer off.
Remember that all computer repairs done by Section 9 carry a 30-day warranty. If you're still experiencing your problem or feel unsatisfied you can bring it in for no addition service charge.
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.
