Hey everyone! Mineplex and the MCL are super excited to announce 2017's second official tournament: the MS Open 2017. Register your MineStrike team for the tournament between July 29 -- August 4 at midnight (EST). Teams of 5-8 players are allowed to register! The MS Open 2017 is the second collaboration between the MCL and Mineplex this year, and will bring the Mineplex community its first official MineStrike tournament ever! 64 teams will go head-to-head in single elimination and Swiss-style brackets until a champion is crowned. The winning team will walk away with thousands of XP, chests, rank upgrades, a never-before-seen 2017 Champion Knife skin, and a "2017 MineStrike Champion" in-game title. The MS Open 2017 will be much larger than Battle of the Bridges, meaning plenty more teams have the chance to play. Every game will be streamed and commentated live on the Mineplex Competitive League YouTube channel, and highlight reels will be uploaded to Mineplex's YouTube channel weekly. This latest Mineplex tournament is part of a greater plan to grow the competitive scene on Mineplex, a goal the MCL has been working towards for years. "Since the creation of Mineplex we've hosted many tournaments, but this year we made a commitment to create more. By partnering with MCL it has allowed us to continue supporting this initiative in bringing more competitive games to Mineplex," said BlueBeetleHD, Mineplex's Head of Staff. We know you're eager to play, so hurry over to the official MS Open 2017 website to register your team. Also, be sure to join the official MCL Tournament Discord to get updates and notifications for livestreams!
