WHAT'S HAPPENING AT GDEX 2018?
MIDWEST CHAMPIONS SERIES AT GDEX
GDEX is excited to have the finals for the Midwest Champions Series this year. Featuring teams from across the Midwest and beyond, it's going to be an awesome event. We'll also be joined by the developers of Killer Queen who will be not only be speaking at GDEX 2018, but will be participating in the tournament!
The Midwest Champions Series came about with the idea of being able to travel, compete, and foster new relationships with other scenes, but to also experiment with new ideas to eventually push the collective national scene as a whole.
The Midwest Champions Series (MCS) is a series of invitational Killer Queen tournaments hosted at venues located throughout the Midwest, with this years finals occurring in Columbus at GDEX. The MCS seeks to establish an objective system to determine a Grand Champion, by standardizing the competitive experience with a standard set of rules and cabinet components. This will facilitate high-level competition between collocated Killer Queen communities, and foster relationships between players - old and new - throughout the region.
Entry is open to all, with a separate Amateur and Professional bracket. There will only be a select number of onsite spots available, so make sure to pre-register to ensure your spot in this exciting event!
GDEX is hosted in the Greater Columbus Convention Center, or the GCCC. Located at 400 N High St, the Convention Center is right in the middle of Columbus, with a short walk to Food, Entertainment, and other amneities.
