LoL Season 1 Finals at DreamHack

LoL Season 1 Finals at DreamHack

The first in an expected many Season finals will include eight of the best League of Legends teams from around the world competing for a huge prize pool of $100,000. The finals will be held at none other than DreamHack Summer 2011 in which the best League of Legends team in the world will be decided.

League of Legends has exploded in the RTS scene and has already featured at events such as the World Cyber Games, ESL Major Series and recently the IEM Season 5 Finals in which FnaticMSI.LoL came out victorious.

The event is located in Jönköping, Sweden and will include three European, three North American and three South East Asia teams. In order to decide which teams will be attending, Riot Games have decided to hold qualifiers for each region, the top eight teams from each Region will fight for a spot in the finals. This will include our own FnaticMSI.LoL, who are very pleased with the announcement of the finals.

Tim 'WetDreaM' Buysse has given a statement to give more detail:

"We are happy to finally hear about the whats, wheres and whens of this Season One circuit tournament. We managed to get enough points to be in the top eight of Europe and qualify for this great tournament between Europe, North America and Asia. We will practice harder than ever before and try to be as prepared as we can to make sure we'll be there at DreamHack. After winning IEM there is nothing we would want more than being at DreamHack as well and the $100,000 prizepool is the biggest thing yet in League Of Legends. The game is growing into a major esports title and that is just great for the FnaticMSI.LoL team. We couldn't be more happy with everything that is coming up at the moment."

With over 140,000 people tuning into the Intel Extreme Masters Finals, it's exciting to see the numbers for this event, which is an even bigger event for everyone involved in LoL. It is sure to be a huge success, with such secure backing and a great competitive scene. Rest assured, this will be a great way for the LoL teams to show their talent and head to a great event to play the finals.

Riot Games have also a released a video to give more incite into the event:
