Oh why didn't i see this before! I live in Linköping but haven't played Sc2 for several months now... Would be fun to try at the offline qualifier anyway. Hope the tournament is a great success, and i hope i remember to show up aswell!
Wow, this looks like a nice Sc2 event, that could serve as a "warm-up" for WCS Sweden (Which takes place the Saturday after Närcon's Sc2 event), as ten (If I've counted correctly) of the current qualified players for this has also qualified for WCS Sweden
Unfortunately, I cannot be there, but as a manga and Sc2 fan I really wish that I could. Good luck with the event
