To everyone’s surprise, Ubisoft has revealed the location of the upcoming BLAST R6 Major almost 4 months in advance. The R6 November Major is returning to USA, and is set to take place in Atlanta, Georgia, from October 30 to November 12.
It was a common complain from the Siege community that the location reveal of these R6 Major tournaments always happened too close to the actual event date. This meant that fans could not plan ahead and buy tickets for their travel and hotel, which then lead many fans to either pay high prices for planes or just not attend the event at all.
But Ubisoft seems to have listened to the community feedback and announced the location and dates much earlier than usual.
Stage 2 of the competitive year will be rounded off with the BLAST R6 Major Atlanta, where teams from all nine regions in the circuit will gather to claim a lion’s share of the $750,000 prize pool.
Following the same format as the Copenhagen Major, the Atlanta Major will welcome 24 teams competing for the last Major trophy of the year and valuable Global Standings points to qualify for the Six Invitational 2024.
