Hope CLG wins, I like the EU team more than the NA version.
Saint was kinda loud, but he did know what he was doing most of the time.


BUT

why do the people who qualified but aren't going to win any matches stilll getting paid 10,000?

1st Place - $40,000
2nd Place - $30,000
3rd Place - $25,000
4th Place - $15,000
5th~8th Place - $10,000


Assuming that's correct, all eight of those teams, even the one with ONLY 50 POINTS, gets 10 grand? I think it should be put into the first place prize to give a little more incentive to win.

Single Elimination seems pretty harsh. Poor Alternate and Elohell.

For such an important tournament, why not go with the usual group stages -> single elimination? That's by far the best format for LoL tournaments IMO, and all the previous IEM tournaments have used that format.

because qualifying is itself a worthy achievement.
because LAN tournaments are expensive to attend
because supporting small teams is good practice if you want competition for the big teams
because the incentive to do well is pretty well established: top placement in regionals earns teams a spot in the World Championship
