NGF enters offline stages
From a pool of ten, four are left. The Nvidia Game Festival will now proceed to its offline LAN event. Invictus Gaming, by virtue of beating DK yesterday will join LGD, PanDa and World Elite in the semi-finals.
Group A saw LGD as well as WE come out tops to proceed to the LAN semi-finals. LGD eased into the semis with a flawless 3/0 record, beating all opponents they faced without dropping a game. WE, despite losing to LGD also managed to proceed with a scoreline of 3/1. AgFox took the role of the whipping boys in this group, and end the tournament their tournament without a win.
Perhaps the tougher of the two groups, this group sees iG as well as PanDa proceed, with dominant team of 2011 DK crashing out after narrow 1-2 losses to both PanDa and iG, which ultimately cost them their spot. For.Love and DT^Club both tried to put up a good showing, but the amateur teams were alas unable to compete with their professional counterparts.
|Date||Team 1||vs||Team 2|
|29 April||LGD||vs|| PanDa|
|30 April||iG||vs|| WE|
The prize pool for the Nvidia Game Festival is hefty, with a first place walking away with $12,000 second place with $6000 and third place with $3000. Every match counts as fourth placers win nothing. Can the soon to be disbanded PanDa squad grab first place and give a final swansong?
