By Official HCS -
In exactly three weeks, we’ll be at HCS Indianapolis at Indy PopCon 2015 for the final open tournament in Season 2, and we hope you’ll join us! We have some exciting news to drop for those thinking about competing, as well those watching in-person and from home. Let’s get right into it.
COMPETITORS: JUNE PRICE DROP & RESERVE PROGRAM
From now until check-in at Indy PopCon on Friday, June 26, a full team pass for HCS Indianapolis is just $200 (a $40 saving). Just use the code “PGL@HCS-INSIDER“ at checkout to receive the discount. If you’ve already grabbed a pass for the full $240, don’t worry - you’ll be receiving a reimbursement of the difference. Players will pick up their 3-day Indy PopCon pass and HCS Indianapolis event badge at check-in.
If you haven’t quite locked on your roster yet, but know you want to compete at HCS Indianapolis, you can now secure a pass with the new HCS Indianapolis Reserve Program. With the Reserve Program, you only need to pay for your portion of the pass ($50), while the rest can be paid during check-in at the tournament. We’ve made a handy graphic to illustrate the news more clearly:
Come test your skills against the best!
SPECTATORS: LIVE & AT HOME AUDIENCE
