Kansas City to host $10,000 Midwest NCS Minor

Another event in the National Championship Series circuit will play out this weekend at Planet Comicon.

Planet Comicon in Kansas City, Missouri, will play host to the latest N3rd Street Gamers National Championship Series Minor this weekend, offering a $10,000 prize pool as well as points towards free entry and possible travel to later events in the circuit.

There are currently fourteen teams signed up, with ten spots still open on the registration page. The tournament is slated to get underway at Bartle Hall on Friday, with matches kicking off at 3 PM EDT. The event is entitled "Cataclysm", and is the latest in a series of NCS events that have already played out this year.

Shawn "witmer" Taylor's Hooked squad won some points of their own with a win at Localhost Denver this past weekend, while Michael "agM" Abood's Stay Frosty mix took home the title at Underwatch in Boston at the end of February. A handful of points also went the way of Holo, who topped the NCS Academy GEX CS:GO Showcase in Washington, D.C. at the start of the year.

The NCS circuit has now played out in three of the ten cities that were announced at the end of 2018, with Kansas set to add a fourth to the list. Over the course of the year, the NCS circuit will continue to play out in:

  • Boston, Massachusetts
  • Washington, D.C.
  • Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
  • Arlington, Virginia
  • Chicago, Illinois
  • Kansas City, Missouri
  • Las Vegas, Nevada
  • Los Angeles, California
  • San Franciso, California
  • Denver, Colorado (Grand Finals)

In April, Philadelphia will play host to an NCS Academy Bootcamp, while Boston will once again play host to a sixteen-team NCS Minor Underwatch event at the end of the month.

Closest I can find is at the bottom of this page:

"The NCS takes the form of four tiers: Academy, Minor, Major, and The Grand Finals. Players of all skill levels may attend Academy events, which offer free or low-cost competition, in order to earn NCS points, develop skills, win small prizes, and build community relationships. NCS points can be accrued through frequency of attendance and from the outcome of their competitions to provide players the opportunity to earn free entry into (and sometimes travel to) the larger Minors and Majors tournaments."
