No love for the Northeast... closest GP is in Pittsburgh or in Montreal.
Guys, seriously. Locations within the US need City->State->Country, not just city+country.
How come 10/21 events are Limited, but only 2/7 of the USA events are Limited? Run more USA Limited events please, possibly 2HG!
I know Vegas is not a Magic stronghold, but it is a "destination". It has been a long time since WOTC has run a GP in Vegas and maybe 2012 it can get some love. I know several years ago, I ran into a few MTG employees that were on there way to SD for an event. This was in LV and they were playing poker. I plan on getting back to Pittsburgh next year for the GP and visit friends and family, but it sure would be nice to get some of them to come here for an event!
I'm so tired of all these limited GPs. I can play sealed/draft every week at FNM
GP London is the day after Prince William is getting married. If you are thinking of getting a hotel book now!
I asked wizards about this a couple of weeks ago, on whether it would be moved, or if it could be confirmed where in London the tournament would be sited.
Thank you for contacting us. It is very for Grand Prix events to be rescheduled and despite the royal wedding, it's likely that the dates will remain the same. However, keep an eye on the Daily MTG for any changes.
Please let me know if you need anymore help!
My reply back: Any chance of letting us know WHERE in London it is then?
Thanks for writing back. Unfortunately, Game Support does not have any scheduling information about events other that what is listed on the Magic website.
We're sorry for any frustration this may have caused.
Looking at the accomodation situation at the moment, there are reasonably afforable hotels still about, they look to have come back down a bit after the price spiked on the day of the wedding announcement, but without confirmation of the venue, players can either wait and probably pay more than they need to, or book now and potentially be miles from the venue.
Would it be so bad to let the players know the venues for this and the other grand prix of 2011?
In the worksafe words of Cee Lo Green: "forget you".
