Will there be a rootstock this year?
Seems it was in August last year.
Console was in August.
PC was late September, IIRC, just after the server merge. Not that they seem to have ever posted that as a news item, so I can't find a link.
Even if it does start right after the Beach event ends on Aug 20, don't expect to hear anything about it until at most a week before the start, and likely just the week it does start. September again seems more likely, but who knows. They haven't yet missed a year, as far as I can remember, so it happening seems very much guaranteed, just the date keeps moving around.
I found the thread from last years seem Ellexem was the first to notice it LOL
