SL i-League StarSeries Season 2 Finals Event Preview
After a long online season, some small events on the side and a bunch of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, the season two finals are upon us. In just a couple of hours, 16 teams will load their rifles and ready their Molotovs for a chance to get a big bite of $300,000.
The prize money will be distributed as follows:
- 1st - $150,000
- 2nd - $50,000
- 3-4th - 25,000
- 5-8th - $10,000
- 9-12th - $4,500
- 13-16th - $3,000
The tournament itself will feature the standard four group set up, with the top two teams advancing to a single elimination, best-of-three playoff bracket. The opening, winners and elimination matches will be best-of-ones and the decider matches in the groups will be a best-of-three. If a team loses twice, they are out.
Here are the four groups:
You can see these great teams battle it over the next couple days, from Sept. 7-11.
In my opinion, these groups are full of dark horses. Who do you think will treat us to a classic underdog playoff run? Let us know in the comments below and for live coverage and updates on all things CSGO, make sure you are following us on Twitter, @GAMURScom.
