Summoners!

We just completed the first stop on the Intel Extreme Masters Global Challenge, one of the most prestigious eSports tournaments in the world. 2011 marks the first year League of Legends has joined the circuit, and we've made an enormous splash in Cologne, Germany.

More than 121,000 fans tuned into our final match between Team Solomid and Counter Logic gaming, and over the course of the event more than 1.5 million summoners tuned in to watch our live coverage.

Even more exciting than the turnout were the matches themselves. The finals were nothing short of extraordinary; the match went a full three games, the third an absolute slugfest between the top two teams in North America. But in the end, only one team could take home the first place trophy: Counter Logic Gaming, led by series MVP HotshotGG, whose efforts were recognize with the ''I Carried Gamescom'' Award!
The final standings were:

  • 1st Place: Counter Logic Gaming
  • 2nd Place: Team SoloMid
  • 3rd Place: FnaticMSI

Congratulations once again to Counter Logic Gaming! Their ability to bounce back from Team SoloMid's onslaught and establish control over the map allowed them to capture first place at the Intel Extreme Masters Global Challenge Cologne. We'd like to commend all of the participating teams for their excellent eSportsmanship and, of course, our viewers.
