IPL6 Cancelled

Posted on at 5:16 PM by Seranaya
The IGN Pro League has finally announced their official cancellation of the IPL6 event at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas.
Continue reading for information on why they cancelled, along with how to get your money back if you have purchased tickets for the event.

IGN put out this statement earlier today regarding the cancellation of IPL6. In short, they do not have the resources to host another major tournament.
"We regret to inform you that we have decided to cancel our next public competition event, IPL 6 at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, March 28-31. 
When we launched IPL two years ago, the eSports landscape was very different with far fewer events than we have now. Now there are more tournaments than ever before competing for people's time and attention, so we're no longer in a position to commit the resources required to run another major independent event. 
You should also know that we are working on finding a new home for the IPL team and IGN will continue to broadcast partner tournaments in the future. 
The past two years have been incredible, and we thank every one of the millions of people who tuned in to our events and coverage over that time. Your support has been tremendous and we could not have done this without you. We went from $5,000 online StarCraft 2 tournaments to one of the world’s best and largest eSports events."
 For those that have purchased tickets for the event, full refunds will be given. If you bought by credit card, it will be refunded in the same amount to the same credit card. If you bought the tickets in person, you must go to the Concierge at The Cosmopolitan to refund your ticket.
