If recent Regional Qualifier matches are any indication of what to expect, this tournament may be just as wide open as any the NA region has seen. Team Naventic is the only clear favorite as Cloud9 has struggled against other top teams throughout the qualifiers, while newly formed teams like Panda Global and Gale Force eSports have displayed promising performances.
Look for both groups to be hotly contested as the NA region’s top teams battle it out for the $100,000 prizepool May 6th and 7th. Competition starts Friday, May 6th @ 3 p.m. CST.
