We’re looking forward to seeing you in about 3 1/2 hours from now!

We had a blast last night! If you want to join us for Part 2, you can find all the information on this thread -> Land Of The Rising Sun - Part 2.

It starts at 5PM GMT.

NOTE: We will move over to the South-East Asia server as we have tested this earlier in the week and there were less issues with the server.
