Counter Logic Gaming is having a $2000 tournament with 16 participants (chosen on a first come, first serve basis).
Yes, CLG is participating in a tournament hosted on their own website, but don’t worry it won’t be another Girls4LoL drama. Partly because an outside e-sports figure is running it, and partly because the 15 other teams are just going to get stomped by CLG (first come, first serve hahahaha) and there won’t really be a chance for CLG to lose and then afterwards abuse their connections.
But seriously, why put a prize on a tournament and then participate if you’re probably just going to crush everybody?
More interesting is that this is going to serve as a beta tournament for future CLG administered tournaments. This is a sign of tournaments to come and more mid-level tournaments for LoL getting attention will definitely shine some spotlights on more teams.
