Update 2: The entire set of WE and CLG.EU will be replayed, rather than just the third game.
Update: VP of eSports at Riot, RedBeard, has provided an update on the day 3 games that were postponed. The remaining games have been rescheduled for Wednesday, October 10, starting at 5PM PDT. The teams will be "separated with no visibility of the opposing team." While there won't be a live audience, the HD streams will be up and running -- though Riot is still exploring how many languages they'll be able to support.
Hey everyone, it's the third day of the League of Legends season 2 World Championship and the last before next weekend's finals. That's right, by the end of today there will be two teams remaining where once there were twelves. After the three quarterfinals games from yesterday, there's currently only 5 teams remaining, with one quarterfinal match left to play and then the semifinals.
Fair warning, if you're unaware of which teams have won or lost up to this point in the tournament, there will be spoilers ahead:
- Quarterfinals: World Elite vs. CLG.EU (12PDT, 3EDT)
- Semifinals: Moscow 5 vs. Taipei Assassins (2PDT, (3DT)
- Semifinals: Azubu Frost vs. winner of remaining quarterfinal match (4PDT, 3EDT)
It's quite remarkable that it's day 3 already and we may not have seen the best team in the tournament play. World Elite, during season 1 and on, has widely been considered a contender for best League of Legends team in the world. Today, we'll see whether that stands the test of true competition. Hopefully waiting in the stands while everyone else plays doesn't bother World Elite like it seemed to bother TSM.
