Sadly, we will be canceling this event. As time grew closerm we started to realize that the timing was just not in our favour. With issues of protesting and riots, the Formula 1 and their whole bang as welll as a trend of reasonings that the differences in time-zones were proving difficult for some who had to work the day after, we realized that this event would not meet up to par with our expectations and would rather improve the next one rather than see a diminish in quality for this event.
We apologies to all purchasers and intended attendees. Anyone who purchased passes of any form will be reimbursed immediately. Any questions or further details are more than welcome to email or notify us or just post in this topic.
Thanks a lot for your understanding and I'm incredibly sorry at the build-up of all this. I hope to see you all as we prepare for Raleigh and onwards. Feedback, views, opinions and suggestions are really desired and we really want to hear what you guys think truthfully and frankly.
We've done Orlando, Providence and Columbus! It's now time for us to announce BarCraft Montreal for MLG Anaheim and what a great event to announce it for since there will be Blizzard's WCS US Nationals, Brood War KeSPA players attending as well as the main event being the Spring Championship for 2012!
With a lot of planning, work and luck (thanks to our friends and sponsors): we're happy to bring you one of the largest BarCrafts in the world and not a moment too soon! We've kept what made this place extroadinary and refined some parts of it we thought could use some improvement!
Pertinent Information about the Event
Rooms: As last time, in order to maximise everyone's confort, we will be opening all three rooms, able to fit 1,000 people in addition to two open-air outside terraces!
Seatings: The Blue Room will contain a massive amount of seatings for those that will want to sit. We will have an HD projector in that room as well. We will also add row of seats in the Main Room.
Evil Geniuses GrandMaster Lair: Once again, Evil Geniuses comes on board with us as we lavish their name with our GrandMaster Lair privately placed upstairs! Pizza and giveaways are to expected as well as the great seatings and televisions to accomodate your comfort levels (tickets go fast for this, so please make the necessary purchases as soon as possible).
Food: We are in the heart of downtown Montreal, if you can't find anything strolling across the streets, we will have the grill, Hot-Dogs and other food accomodations to serve your needs.
Pictures & Video: As always, we'll have a professional photographer on the site to snap some great shots of teh crowd, some of you attendees and the overall atmosphere as well as record some of the best moments of the event!
Drinks: We're looking to expand our horizon with drinks! All drinks are StarCraft themed and pretty badass (I can't get over the Vespene Gas)! If you have a suggestion of a pretty good alcoholic drink, let us know and we'll see about adding it to the menu!
Televisions: With the great weather and the commonality of often enjoying the games outside, we're taking advantage of the summer and featuring some televisions outside! The corridors and the main rooms will be decorated wtih the most optimal and HD-esque televisions or projectors we can find! Ultra settings for all streams and for your viewing pleasure!
