The most enticing quarter-final should be Unknown versus FlipSid3 Tactics*, with the Danes hopefully fired up after their first matches as a sponsored team in ESL One Frankfurt and the HitBox Dota EU Championship ended in defeat. What is more the prospect of 4 Friends + Chrillee* versus the rising London Conspiracy* is also a tempting match-up.
Despite the calibre and reputation of the participating teams in the last few months, over the course of the last 2 weeks many of the teams have endured heavy defeats, meaning this could prove to be a particularly good tournament for 4FC, should they get pass London Conspiracy. As per usual the playoffs are best-of-1, excluding the grand final which is best-of-3. The winner is awarded 1,500 EUR, with 500 EUR for the runner-up.
