PLG Grand Slam heavily delayed; Initial matches to be played off-stream
Due to "delay and technical issues", the first day of matches at PLG Grand Slam 2018 in Abu Dhabi will not be streamed, the organisers have told HLTV.org.
The first matchups in the GSL-style group stage at the $100,000-tournament were supposed to start Thursday at 08:00, but around 11:00, players were only just setting up in the arena after having waited several hours in the hotel lobby.
At this point in time, it is unclear when the initial best-of-one group stage matches will start, but Power League Gaming has told HLTV.org that the first day of matches will not be streamed due to the delays and server issues.
Below is the full team list and groups for the Abu Dhabi event:
