Sixteen StarCraft 2 powerhouses and four top League of Legends teams are lined up and ready for a weekend of competition and $15,000 prize pool per discipline.
Held in Austin, Texas, the second edition of the Lone Star Clash gathers together many of the most renowned names from the two eSports scene, both caster and player-wise.
The StarCraft 2 tournament will enjoy the voices of Day, Axeltoss and TotalBiscuit who will cast the star-laden bracket stacked to bursting with players like Stephano, Bomber, Naniwa, Thorzain, Polt and more. The French beast took the first LSC after a near perfect run and a grand final against Polt and is surely ready to snatch yet another championship for the zerg race. Ret, Hawk, Violet and Sheth are also there to complete the line-up for the swarm.
At the same time, the terrans are bringing in almost an all-Korean line-up backed up by Thorzain and qxc, while protoss is represented by the strong European trio of ToD, Nanwa and BabyKnight together with Axiom's Crank and i7's Axslav, all of whom more than capable of putting a halt to swarm's streak of tournament golds.
