Due to the recent news regarding Set 2's change in release date, we've decided to avoid conflicts with the special Set 2 launch event, we'll be delaying the Blood Cup until the following week.

More news can be found at http://fiveshards.com/blood-cup-delayed-until-december-20th-2/

Sorry for any inconveniences this causes. None of the other events in the series will be affected by this.

Ok good to know. However that is the same weekend as the HexTechs open tournament for December I think and the VIP tournament the weekend after that. I will gladly play in the tournament whenever it is though, but it might work better on Saturday December 6th instead though (just in case the Set 2 release weekend gets delayed again due to bugs)

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.

Ok thanks. That is good to know and is reassuring. I thought they were always the 3rd weekend of the month.

^The last Hextechs Open before November was in August, so I think they might be quarterly.
