ImageMLG Summer Championship continues with full force. Today is Championship day but who is still in the last fight for circuit points?

Day 2 of MLG Raleigh and it was time for some of the teams to leave the tournament. The battles in the losers bracket started with US Team Legion vs US Team4Not . Legion won the first map very convincingly despite US Christian 'TheRainMan' Kahmann's Teemo, but in the second one 4not were on top of their game all the way till the last Baron which was stolen by a Gragas ult and that allowed Legion to come back after being behind in kills, objectives and gold throughout the whole game. This unfortunate turnout of events sent 4not home and they were followed by US Meat Playground , US Monomaniac eSports Imperium and US unRestricted eSports .

In the next round of the losers bracket Legion had to play against US Counter Logic Gaming Black. In an epic match-up in mid between US Neil 'pr0lly' Hammad and CA Jason 'WildTurtle' Tran the latter managed to show his dominant play once again and even though Legion didn't give up until the last team fight of the second game, they had to admit defeat and leave the tournament despite being a fan-favourite for a top 3 finish.

Up in the winners bracket US Team Dignitas managed to overcome CA Dynamic with a 2-1 score. Sent down to the losers bracket the youngsters from Dynamic took out CLG Black out of the tournament ending their hopes to attend the Regionals and today we will see their rematch against Dignitas for a place in the Grand Final.
The other match from the winners bracket was between US Monomaniac eSports Ferus and US Team Curse Academy. Being one of the big favourites to win the tournament Curse didn't show any hesitation and won two straight maps with the second one showing the real definition of carries when both US Chenglong 'Nyjacky' Wang and US David 'Cop' Roberson managed to get their full builds minutes before the game ended.

Down to the losers bracket mMe Ferus had to face US Orbit Gaming but they didn't had better luck against them. Orbit 2-0ed them like they did before that with US Team SoloMid EVO and will have their rematch with Curse for the second place in the final.

The semi-finals start at 16:00 CET while the Grand Final is at 21:00 CET. Catch all the action at MLG!
