There will be a $15 Steam giveaway at 7:00 CDT[local]
Hey everyone. Last year I did a 24 hour marathon the weekend before my semester began as a last hurrah for summer, and I've decided to do it again this year. However, this year will be much bigger and better than last year. There's going to be a lot of laddering, but the marathon will also feature an invitational and an open tournament, both with $100 prize pools!
Here's a tentative schedule of how the day will go: August 11 2012 8:00 CDT Warm up ladder games 9:00 CDT Ladder games with commentary and replay analysis 13:30 CDT Set up for I'm Out Already!? Invitational
14:00 CDT I'm Out Already!? Invitational Ro8 Match 1 14:45 CDT IOA!? Invitational Ro8 Match 2 15:30 CDT IOA!? Invitational Semi Final 1 16:30 CDT IOA!? Invitational Semi Final 2 17:30 CDT IOA!? Invitational Final (Some players are playing in the NASL 4 Qualifier which begins around the time when this final happens. A semi final may have to not be casted to speed up the tournament so that no player is late for that)
20:00 CDT 30 Minute Dinner Break. I may show a mini-documentary I made on the GSL Open Season 1 to fill time. 20:30 CDT Set up for I'm Out Already!? Super Tournament

3:00 CDT Team and custom games with friends and viewers. This includes: - 3v3's and 4v4's against randoms or viewers. Viewers will typically have the option to pick limitations on what I do (i.e. expand 4 times before making tier 1 units, etc.), or pick what units I make. - Monobattles - Star Strikers - SC2 Sprint (Best custom game) - Photon Cycles
8:00 CDT Bedtime!
There will be a giveaway of a poster for the I'm Out Already!? Invitational after its finals, and I may have other giveaways during the marathon.
