ImageThe Texas e-Sports association and Cyber Sports Network are teaming up to put on the second Lone Star Clash tournament.

The event will take place over this weekend, November 10th - 11th and will feature 3 different tournaments. The first is a $15 000 SC2 double elimination style tournament. The second is a $5 000 single elimination League of Legends tournament from the collegiate circuit. This tournament will feature teams from Georgia Tech, UC San Diego, UC Irvine and UT Austin. This tournament gives us the opportunity to support the lesser-known teams of the collegiate circuit and show them the e-Sports community doesn't care exclusively about "pros".

The final tournament is a double elimination $15 000 tournament featuring some of our favourite teams including:


EU 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.


US Team Curse is going to be showcasing a new line-up this tournamnet as they just acquired US 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 US 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 US Christopher 'Zuna' Buechter. This team is known for their powerful bottom lane and it will be interesting to see how well they do.


US 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.
