With everybody's favorite tournament set to return this weekend, the only things missing were who is going to face who and how much they stand to gain.

Although White-Ra will be absent due to personal reasons the brackets are likely going to be stacked as ever with players such as MVP, Nerchio and Homestory Cup veteran MC fighting for the prize. The tournament kicks off at June 5th and will once again have 32 players comfortably competing in Take's apartment.

As it is HomeStory tradition, viewers will be able to watch their favorite players outside the usual tournament environment. Players casting, poker games, barbeque and an overwhelming sense of camaraderie have always been the trademarks of the HomeStory Cup.
