Greetings, ladies and gentlemen. I am Adel Chouadria and from here on I will frequently be guiding you through the latest events surrounding the League of Legends scene. Whether it is the latest tournament news, rumors, or events surrounding the League of Legends scene, I will make sure you won't miss a beat of League of Legends action.
- Invictus Gaming gave no quarter to the Taipei Snipers with a 2-0 sweep as they advanced to the IEM Singapore Finals. Their siege composition in Game 1 allowed them to control the map and slowly snowball the game in their favor. Game 2 was a different story, as iG Zzitai owned Summoner's Rift.
- The DreamHack Winter Finals will feature SK Gaming and Kiedyś Miałem Team. Yesterday, KMT dispatched LowLandLions 2-0, and SK barely pulled through against GodBro's Intellectual Playground 2-1. This game may have repercussions on SK's choice of opponent come Season 4 Promotion Tournament, as KMT may be one of the options available to them.
News around the scene
- In a late EU Challenger roster shift, Eternity Gaming acquired the roster of RoughNeX, and Pulse eSports acquired the roster of Heroes Team. On the other hand, the previously reported Astana acquisition of Kiedys Mialem Team fell through at the eleventh hour, and eSuba's roster disbanded.
- Alex Ich is not attending the Tencent Gaming Carnival for health reasons. The Russian mid laner will miss the event due to treatment in relation to a surgery made after last year's IEM Hanover. We wish him all the best and hope he can have a speedy recovery!
Openly stated rumors
- Kev1n is currently trying out for Team Alternate. As of late, he has been streaming from ATN's gaming house. Is there a roster shakeup in the horizon? What does that mean for Kerp, the current top laner? This saga may continue in a future article.
That was Today in LoLeSports. Thank you for reading and make sure to stay tuned for our next recap!
