The final tournament is a double elimination $15 000 tournament featuring some of our favourite teams including:
Counter Logic Gaming EU is the clear favourite to win this tournament, but don't count any of the other teams out just yet. This past weekend we saw them perform admirably at MLG taking 3rd with a substitute on support. They've been scrimming for the past few days and we'll see if they have what it takes to secure the win.
Team Curse is going to be showcasing a new line-up this tournamnet as they just acquired Joe 'Voyboy' Esfahani a little while ago. People have been speculating that the aggressive style Voyboy brings to the team may be what Curse needs to push it over the top.
Now ex-team Monomaniac eSports Ferus playing under the "FeaR" tag is the third team to compete. Though they dont officially have a top-laner at the moment they have been seen scrimming extensively with Christopher 'Zuna' Buechter. This team is known for their powerful bottom lane and it will be interesting to see how well they do.
Orbit Gaming is the last team to make it to Lone Star. They have been a 'quiet giant' in the NA scene for some time now, taking games off many pro teams and winning the occasional SoloMid invitational. It is rumoured that the team was recently acquired by gaming giant Natus Vincere after leaving Orbit gaming due to internal conflict.

I'm the ACM for LoL.NA. I think one of the best things about E-Sports is the connections and communities that are built around the game. My hope is that we can get E-Sports on the same level of traditional sports in the broader world's minds.
