Showdown in Seattle - NA Regionals Heading to PAX Prime
We’re excited to bring the NA Regionals back to Seattle for PAX Prime on August 29 - September 1. The top 3 teams from NA Regionals tournament will move on to represent North America at Worlds. International Wild Card (IWC) regions will also get in on the action in Seattle with Latin America and Brazil facing-off for one of the International Wild Card spots for Worlds.
Bringing the NA Regionals to PAX fans lets us bring competitive, live action to esports fans and gamers from all over the country. Each year thousands of fans make the journey to Seattle to connect and check out the latest in gaming and esports. We can't wait to bring the peak of the North American LCS 2014 season direct to some of the most passionate fans out there.
The top 6 teams at the end of Week 11 will be going to PAX Prime. The top 3 teams from NA Regionals as well as the International Wild Card winner will move on to the 2014 Worlds Group stages. Being crowned the top North American team and a shot at the Summoner’s Cup aren’t the only things on the line; the last place in the Regionals tournament will go into Promotion Tournament to face-off against Challenger Teams to reclaim their spot in the LCS.
The playoff quarterfinals will happen the week before PAX in the LCS Studio. The remainder of the NA Regionals playoffs and the 5th place match will take place in Seattle. All playoff matches and the IWC matchup at PAX will be best of five games.
Fans may remember the epic action from last year where Cloud 9 battled against TSM in one of the most memorable matches of Season 3. In the end, we saw Cloud 9 come out victorious to win the NA LCS Champion title. Not only were they crowned the top team in North America but they also finished the season with a 30-3 record.
With all the teams facing some of the toughest competitors to be crowned the NA LCS Champion and the chance of a lifetime to go to Worlds. You won’t want to miss the final matches of the NA Season at PAX Prime.
