Cpx didn't want to sell so they gave them a crazy high price for the land... Thinking no way would they pay that.

And the developers bought it at that price!
i hope that's true, and not that the government screwed them over.

Hell survivors already sent a semi with a flatbed trailer to haul some items from the field.

Thats a shame that it went to a field that could easily obtain them normally. Wouldve been better to see smaller fields get some help

CPX wants to prepare it up for Living Legends, the main thing they grabbed were picnic tables. Turnout will likely be quite a bit larger then what HSI normally handles.

That's a whole other topic I wont dive into, but what I will say, is that I very much hope that this is the ONLY year that HSI hosts this event. I have not seen much from them that makes me feel like this year will be half as good as it was at CPX

Yea, I predict that LL this year is going to be a disaster. I hope it isn't, but i have a bad feeling about it.

The other events have been successful and they'll likely get a majority of the MW teams to still make the trip, despite the extra 4+ hour drive. That difference might well be offset by PA, NY, OH, WV, and KY teams that normally wouldnt drive to Chicago (but having Endless legends in PA in Sept. might not make that a reality).

The unfortunate reality is there aren't many fields 1. large enough in the area and 2. near a transit hub for easy hotel/travel

I think I've only been to 1 or 2 big games at HSI since the field contracted (RIP MASTERS FIELD).

I don't understand the comments about numbers of players on the field... I've played there for Monster Games with thousands on the field before. Heck my first game there, ever, was a 24 hour Wayne Dollack scenario.
