The November Six Major 2020 has already begun with the LATAM region, where Team Liquid was crowned as the Champions. But now, with the North American November Six Major on the horizon, Ubisoft has shared more details about this upcoming event.
Instead of being an international event, the November Major was replaced to be a regional tournament. But unlike the other regions, the North American Major will be played offline in a LAN environment. The event will be held with no audience, maintaining safety protocols, at the Esports Arena in Las Vegas, NV.
