ImageThe IGN Pro League is holding it's fifth live event featuring League of Legends and Starcraft II from November 29th to December 2nd in Las Vegas

On the League of Legends side of the tournament there is a group stage of 4 groups, each consisting of 4 teams: 1 from NA, 1 from EU, 1 from Asia, and 1 from the open qualifier being held live at IPL5. The group stage will determine seeding for the second half of the competition, a double elimination bracket with the top two teams from each group going to the Winners bracket and the bottom two to the Losers bracket. IPL has already announced some of the invited teams, including US Team SoloMid , US Team SoloMid EVO, EU Counter Logic Gaming EU, RU Moscow Five , and CN World Elite .


On the SC2 side we have a massive 72 person double elimination bracket tournament being put on by IPL, with a complete removal of the group stage. In addition the 8 Regional winners will be seeded directly to the Winners’ Round 4, which consists of players like Jung-Hoon 'MarineKing' Lee, Young Seo 'TaeJa' Yoon, and Lee-Seok 'aLive' Han!

As if this wasn't enough, the GSL will be holding the Code S Semi Finals, Grand Finals, and World Championship at this event live! With all these great players turning out this is sure to be a landmark moment in E-sports.
