To a surprise of no one, Blizzard has decided to move another Masters Tour stop to online-only. The upcoming Masters Tour Jönköping (June 12-14) was announced to be online-only a while ago, but at the same time they didn’t want to make decisions about the next event yet. However, since the COVID-19 situation hasn’t got much better since the last decision and most of the countries still don’t allow mass gatherings, Masters Tour Montreal (September 11-14) will also be online-only. Additionally, some of the qualifiers have already started (such as Elite Series Philippines). The series of 90 online Masters Qualifiers (available to anyone) will also start soon, on June 4.
Stay tuned for more information about the events, and read more below!
