This event has been postponed to a date to be determined next week due to a lack of interest from the recent 21.3 update.

Stay tuned for the postponement date coming your way as soon as possible. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Update: Event canceled, we apologize for the inconvenience. In the meantime, check out the latest US East Takeover. Thanks!
