During the OGN: The Champions Spring 2012 tournament we saw familiar names participate, particularly Counter Logic Gaming and FnaticRC. While both teams did get eliminated during the quarter-finals, it goes to show that the Korean teams are going to be a force to be reckoned with. This time around we will be seeing other big international teams participate in the tournament, specifically CLG.eu, Team Dignitas, Natus Vincere, and China’s World Elite.
Similar to the Spring Championship, the tournament will be boasting the same amount of prize money with almost $155,000 in the prize pool, and the first place champions will win a whopping $88,000 prize. This will be one event you don’t want to miss!
The IGN Pro League Season 5 qualifiers rages on as both the European and North American brackets are dwindling down to their semi-finals. We continue today with two strong teams in the European scene, with Season 1 Champions FnaticRC going up against Made in Italy, who placed second in last weeks Go4LoL.
