Join us in Durham

If you’re in or around North Carolina, we’ll be at the Durham Microsoft Store (located in the Streets at Southpoint) on May 13th! Matches start at 5pm EDT, but we’ll be there a little early to hang out– watching local participants play in the tourney, mingling with fans, signing autographs, and giving away some The Unspoken posters! Internet personality CaRtOoNz is joining us as well, so it’ll be a great time! Come join us. Play, spectate, chat or just hang out!

Can’t make it to Durham?

That’s ok. With local events happening at 80 Microsoft Stores around North America, you can still join in the fun. Select stores in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco and Seattle will also have some of our favorite streamers and internet personalities making an appearance. Stay tuned in to our Twitter for more details on that.
