The ESL has announced that the upcoming Intel Extreme Masters stop in Guangzhou, China has been canceled due to the ongoing dispute between China and Japan. The tournament was canceled as the expo that was to host the event starting on September 30 had to cancel as many presenters are from Japan. Qualifiers had already started for the event, and they won't continue. Director of Pro Gaming at ESL Michal 'Carmac' Blicharz said that the company "will soon announce more Intel Extreme Masters tournaments, including another one in Asia," and apologized to all fans that were looking forward to the event.
