Wow! The Chance Cube Open brought more excitement then we could have imagined. We loved bringing this event to Worlds and thank everyone who attended and supported us! The final game came down to the last health point for the last character on each side! It was a nail biter until the very end.

Tournament Play Etiquette
By Paolo Fernandes
I know playing Destiny is not at all about trophies or medals (but as are you all, I’m extremely excited Worlds is around the corner), and even less about fame and leaving a legacy to your family’s name.

It started at 9:30pm so it would end at roughly midnight (before the cut), so participants would be able to buy his resupply of boosters on their street date of 01/13. Sixteen players did show up, including both Kevin K and myself from The Chance Cube. It did help that the area was already under an ice storm warning starting Friday morning, and that most of the area schools cancelled classes (and several businesses), so there were more people able to be up and out later than normal for a Thursday. It went very well. Mason, the owner of the store, ran a great tournament. I decided to go because I do much more playing online, and wanted the opportunity to play more physical games.
