Poland conquers Germany but Asia reigns supreme

ImageDay 1 of the League of Legends tournament at the WCG has concluded with the shock of the day being Team Acer eliminated by Gameburg and perhaps with 2 Asian teams going 3-0 in both their groups.

The first day of the WorldCyberGames in Korea has concluded and Groups A and B of the LoL tournament have finished.

Group A

Before the tournament started, many would have put that DE Team Acer would have won the group and that PL Gameburg Team or SG Flash eSports would take the second spot. This been mainly due to the fact that VN Siol haven't been seen in any major offline events before.

However the shock of the day is that Team Acer were eliminated at this early stage. They will be left reeling after being defeated by GBT, a team they have faced plenty of time before and beaten.

Flash probably turned a few heads, the Asian teams are relatively unknown entities but not many would have predicted their 3-0 clean sweep of the group stage.

Standings (W/L)

SG Flash eSports 3-0
PL Gameburg Team 2-1
DE Team Acer 1-2
VN Siol 0-3

Group B

Group B also saw an Asian team brush every other team aside, CN Invictus Gaming went 3-0 in their matches to ensure that both #1 places would come from world's largest continent.

Similar to Group A, going into the first days action many would have assumed US Team Dignitas would have secured the first place in the group and although they still qualified it was not the plain sailing they had probably been tipped for. The team who will be feeling the most disappointment will be that of ES MeetYourMakers . MYM representing one of the strongest LoL nation's in the EU will no doubt have wanted to at least progress from the group stage.

Standings (W/L)

CN Invictus Gaming 3-0
US Team Dignitas 2-1
ES MeetYourMakers 1-2
UK 4Kings 0-3
