Curse continues their winning by beating Team SoloMid in just two games. The rematch between Curse and Counter Logic Gaming coming up with a weighted finals. Because Curse is coming from the loser’s bracket they have to win two in a row, while CLG only has to win one game.
Curse wins in two games against Dignitas, so the penultimate match will be Curse vs. Team SoloMid on NESL channel two.
Dignitas advances, so the Curse vs. Dignitas match will begin soon on NESL channel two.
CLG wins against TSM in two games, so they advance to the finals. Crs won their loser’s bracket game, so they are going against the winner of v8 and Dignitas next.
In the v8 vs. Dignitas match v8 was down more than 10k gold and might be pulling off a comeback right now on NESL channel one. Dignitas still up more than 10 kills. Catch game one of Dignitas vs. v8 later on the VoDs if you didn’t watch it, it’s a good game regardless of the outcome.
For those wondering why Epik isn’t competing in this tournament, Dan Dinh said on his stream that the Premiere League requires a fee to enter and Epik just didn’t bother with it.
The finals of the winner’s bracket, TSM vs. CLG, is beginning on NESL channel two soon, casted by Dyrus and ColbyCheeze.
RFLX and Dignitas are also going into game three right now. Game one was a 45-minunte game of back and forth eventually won by RFLX. Scarra carried with a Veigar in the second, causing RFLX to just ban him for the third.
Games beginning now. Dignitas vs. RFLX already under way on NESL channel one.
One of the biggest upsets of the day was Toveri, a pretty unknown team that lost to LeagueCraft gaming in the first round, beat Complexity and then A Picture of a Goose immediately after.
Playing tomorrow begins at 12:00 p.m. PST. CLG and Team SoloMid are still in the winner’s bracket and are guaranteed high-place finishes, while v8, Dignitas, RFLX, Curse, and Toveri will play their way up the rest of the loser’s bracket.
A lot late, but the second game between CDE and Poland happening soon on the second stage. CDE and Poland at 1-0. CLG and France at 1-1.
5:40 update: Dan Dinh also commentating on his own3d channel
Quarterfinals matches on the only-LoL channel right now (CDE vs. Dignitas right now!). Nhat Nguyen is commentating right now on his own3d. Matches with official commentators on the main stage and second stage coming up.
It looks like there’s going to be one to two games on the second stage channel at 7 p.m. (Pacific standard time) and then one game at 8:30 p.m. on the main stage channel. Keep in mind that no e-sports event has ever started on time. You could probably get there late and be perfectly on time.
Counter Logic Gaming (Canada) and Chicks Dig Elo playing today, along with some other teams (NORTH AMERICAN BIAS).
Streaming on the second channel soon, switching to the first channel about midway through. I approve of the Justice music used for the WCG spots in-between games.
Goose beats v8 in three very close games. The North American representatives in Kiev will be A Picture of a Goose, Dignitas, and Team SoloMid. A Picture of a Goose has been one of the teams just on the edge of the spotlight for a long time, so this qualification for Kiev has been awhile in the making. I’ll have a recap and stray notes up soon (long day x_x).
