Word from the 44Clash contest organizers is that they are putting the contest on hold.
Regarding holding 44CLASH
We have decided not to hold 44CLASH this year.
We would like to apologize to everyone who was looking forward to attending, and we appreciate your understanding in this matter.June 2013
This is sad news for 44Clash Japan fans. 44Clash is a very exclusive contest that attracts the best players in the world. With the success of 44Clash Moscow, I think this is the last thing anyone expected.
