Even if you aren’t participating in the tournament, there will be a 3rd field for open Ion Rush games to be played, so you can get your competitive fix, or try the game type for the first time!

Teams have been keeping their rosters and plans quiet as this is the first major Ion Rush event and there isn’t a ton of scouting information out there yet, so we have group information and team names to share with you, but no rosters for most teams as of yet.
