Is this still going to happen on Dec. 13/14th now that the Shattered Destiny launch event has been pushed back (https://hextcg.com/set-2-launch-date-moved-to-december-9th/) to that weekend?

Looks like it's scheduled for the 20th/21st which is the same date as the HexTechs Open. It can't be the 26th-28th because that's when the December VIP is so it looks like the best time would be during the HexTechs Open (which quite a few would be up for doing too) or on December 6th/7th...then again it is possible though that the HexTechs might be willing to cancel their tournament for this month so that people do this one instead...I don't know on that though.

When we looked to move the date, we checked to see if anyone else scheduled a tournament for that weekend. With the weekend being less than a month away, we figured people would have claimed it if they were planning for that weekend. As of the last Hextech's article (11/24), they had still not planned/announced on their next tournament (the last few sentences here (http://www.hextechs.tv/articles/november-open-overview/)). If we are stepping on their internal dates, we apologize. However, we do have hextech's people (recently) signed up (http://challonge.com/TheBloodCup) for our inaugural tournament and if they still wanted to run the tournament that weekend they can always contact me as there is a potential compromise we could work out.

In short, we are still planning on 12/20-12/21.
