Look at this! – the most exciting sporting events of the week (May 1-7).
We closed an eventful week, but we won’t be left without esport matches in the next few days either, there will be another reason to turn on livestreams.
League of Legends clashes will continue, there will also be professional Overwatch matches and CS: GO players will travel to Australia.
Counter Strike: Global Offensive
Intel Extreme Masters Season XII – Sydney
After Katowice, the next IEM tournament will be held in Sydney, but this time only CS: GO will be represented. Six of the eight teams were invited by a mix of organizers from the European and North American regions, but a Chinese and an Oceanian brigade also managed to qualify. Players will be battling each other for five full days in Australia’s biggest tournament to date to eventually take the biggest slice of the $ 200,000 prize pool.
Date: May 3-7.
Look at this: Astralis
The Danish team has won several tournaments in recent months, including the previous IEM in Poland and Eleague Major earlier this year. The guys perform great on their own, and when put together they can do quite amazing things, so there’s a good chance they’ll start in first place in Sydney as well. However, we must not forget about StarLadder winner FaZe Clan or SK Gaming sweeping through cs_summit, so the Danes can expect serious clashes.
You can find a detailed schedule of the matches here, and you can watch the live broadcast on this page.
OGN Overwatch Apex Season 3
Group rounds of the Korean Championship will continue, where in addition to the best local teams, two European brigades will compete for the finals. It will definitely be worth keeping an eye on the clashes, they may even have done a few tricks that you can then use in a Blizzard shooting range.
Date: May 2-5. Start: 12:00
You can watch the matches here.
League of Legends
Mid-Season Invitational 2017 – Play In Week 2
The Turkish SuperMassive, who already have a secure place in the Play In final, is breaking ahead unstoppably. The guys are 5-1 right now, so they’re sure to clash with either a NALCS or LMS representative this week.
The situation is less clear in Group B, where the Marines are leading, but Lyon Gaming is also closely behind with a 2: 1 result. The situation of group B may change a lot during the week.
Either way, TeamSolo Mid and Flash Wolves are already waiting for their opponents. MSI will continue this week at 8pm and there will be no stops until Saturday, when it will be revealed who is the 6th to take part in MSI’s group matches.
The Kiev Major closed on Sunday night, so the teams are now spending their well-deserved rest. There will be only smaller tournaments until June, after which Epicenter and Summit 7 will lead The Internationan 7 in August. If anyone might have missed it, be sure to look back at the end of the tournament in Kiev, as the teams played amazing matches and reversed situations where someone else would have typed GG a long time ago.
We still have something to tell you, you will find all the interesting things here!
