As the title suggests, we unfortunately have no choice other than to postpone the upcoming Open and Promotion & Relegation Tournaments due to the recent announcement made by Dreamhack, the tournament operators for the NLC and UKLC. If you haven’t seen the announcement, please click here for further reading.
Currently, the UKEL does not have any further information other than what has been posted publicly by DreamHack. However, we are seeking clarification as fast as we can so that we can provide a more concrete update to all prospective teams.
This is of course not how we planned the 2021 competitive year to end and we hope that we will still be able to deliver an open tournament and subsequent promotion and relegation series. However, with the current lack of information we cannot confidently plan a tournament for which there may be no reward.
As soon as the UKEL has more information regarding the plans for the NLC ecosystem, we will provide a further update to you.
For the time being, please consider our Open and Promotion & Relegation Tournaments to be postponed indefinitely.
-Alex (Operations Director)
