ESL Selects LoL for Intel Extreme Masters
The most popular eSports League in North America and Europe has selected League of Legends as one of 3 titles they will feature in 2011 in their highest level of competition. Today the Electronic Sports League (ESL) announced that they had selected one new title to join Starcraft 2 and Counter-Strike in the Intel Extreme Masters Series - your very own League of Legends.
We are honored to be placed in the top tier of eSports gaming, but the credit goes to the fans who have made League of Legends one of the most popular eSport titles in the world. Alongside the WCG (World Cyber Games) naming LoL an official title and the Season One Championship breaking viewership records, we are humbled to see League of Legends so widely recognized as a premier eSport title.
