We have heard through the grapevine, that the United States Grand Tournament circuit is dead for 2009. Expect this news to be rolled out shortly through official channels.
UPDATE: Official Confirmation Here
~While I’m still somewhat shaken up by what this means towards the future, I see it as an opportunity for the player community to step in and fill the void with independent events. Time will tell if this decision gets reversed eventually, or whether Games Workshop has really decided to leave the dedicated tournament scene.
