Star Ladder Season Two nears its end
posted by Roegnvaldr, 350 days ago
Amidst the sea of battles and tournaments, one must now take note of the second season of the Star Ladder Star Series. With 16 teams competing for a prize of $6000 as the main prize on the line, we shall take a moment to go through what has already happened and look at what will happen next.
Even though most of the matches have already been played, there is still much more in store for teams and spectators. Just like the first time around, the secon season of the Star Series will conclude with a LAN finals at the Kiev Cyber Sport Arena, but this time, it will be the top 6 teams who go there to compete, rather than the top 4.
1. Natus Vincere
2. Evil Geniuses
3. Keita Gaming
7. Moscow Five
However, as any attentive reader may have noticed, there are 7 teams currently qualified for a 6-team LAN-tournament. Moscow Five, Darer and mTw have all scored the same results during the league campaign. To decide which two of them will advance, and to decide who will be left behind, an additional playoff tournament between the three teams will take place tomorrow, July 4th, with the matches being played at the following times:
Moscow Five vs Darer 16:00 CET
Darer vs mTw 18:00 CET
mTw vs Moscow Five 20:00 CET
An English broadcast of the first and second matches will be available right here on joinDOTA, brought to you by our very own Toby 'TobiWan' Dawson.
