RC EMS One Summer viewer's guide

ESL has published the full schedule for their RaidCall EMS One Summer 2013 Finals event, set to take place on the weekend in Cologne, Germany.

First and foremost it's important to note that ESL has emphasized the fact this time around that they may start some matches in advance, as they want to have a continuous show on the streams.

That means matches, other than the grand final scheduled for 20:00 on Sunday, may start slightly ahead of the scheduled times. It makes planning for specific matches harder, but also means there will be non-stop Counter-Strike action.

ESL TV studios will play host to another RC EMS One Finals event 

The tournament itself will be played out in a single elimination best-of-three format as it was in the previous season, with teams from the same main round group stage unable to meet each other until the grand final.

As it was the previous time, ESL will not be providing public GOTV for the matches, but all games will be shoutcasted by ESL TV and official partners in various different languages.

Saturday, June 29th
13:00 France LDLC.com vs. Denmark fnatic BO3 Q1
After Q1 Denmark Copenhagen Wolves vs. France VeryGames BO3 Q2

I guess I'll mainly focus on it. Split-screen is the best solution in these kind of situations :)

NiP crushed VP easily at DH tbh and i think we might see ESC here instead of VP, if they prepare for this event. But yeah, LDLC - VG will be really sick, because both teams are motivated to win.

Sauteed reindeer thinly sliced and served over mashed potatoes with cowberry preserves. It is called Poronkaristys and is almost always served with a side of pickled cucumber and Kossu lingonberry. By the way, Kossu is Finlands nationally recognized Vodka and most popular drink, available in six unusual flavors. - Might be something like that ;S
