ESEA Finals schedule released

ESEA has revealed the detailed schedule of the upcoming season finals in Dallas.

From Friday to Sunday, six teams (Titan plus five North American sides) will go head-to-head in Dallas to determine which of them will succeed Ninjas in Pyjamas as ESEA champions.

Prior to the main tournament, however, there will be an All-Star Game between the players who will be at the event. There will be two captains, one from Titan (the only European team in attendance) and one from compLexity (the top seed from North America).

The captains will then pick the other players through a draft-style system, with the only criterion being that they cannot choose their own team-mates.

Traditionally, the winning region of this All-Star game would get the better seeds, but this time around Titan and coL will lock horns on an aim-map match that will not be streamed to find out who gets the #1 seed.

Below you can find the complete schedule for this three-day tournament:

Friday, January 17th:

00:00 - All-Star Game
01:30 - United States MouseSpaz vs United States Homeless
04:00 - United States iBUYPOWER vs United States United5

Saturday, January 18th:

17:00 - France Titan / United States coL vs United States MouseSpaz / United States Homeless
20:00 - France Titan / United States coL vs United States iBUYPOWER / United States United5
22:30 - Lower Round 2
01:00 - Lower Final
03:30 - Upper Final

Sunday, January 19th:

17:30 - Consolidation Final
19:30 - Grand Final

warden and storm are washed up. maybe IBP vs titan can be good but i seriously doubt it judging from IBP's recent performance

I think U5 will surprise. They've been practicing a lot, and they had to beat iBP and coL in their league matches to make it to LAN.
2014-01-17 12:27
IBP's should be interesting. As someone who has watched many of their matches, it was really obvious that they were playing way below the level they're capable of at DHW. If they can manage to actually get their shit together on LAN the team could give any team a run for their money, but who the hell knows if they'll actually get it together.

Neo is always Neo. He is now the IGL of AGAiN, and you could see what they did. SLTV8 Champion.
2014-01-15 03:21
Captains can pick up one man from 1 team excluding his own team. ;)
2014-01-17 23:09
would be very surprising if titan didnt win this, but hoping the americans can put up a good fight and make some decent entertainment out of it

I don't understand the rules very much of that all star match, can ex6tenz really choose no one from his team? ..that would be pretty lame..
2014-01-15 02:09
Titan going 0-2 and not facing coL would be amazing. But coL vs Titan final, coL wins.
2014-01-15 02:14
" Titan and coL will lock horns on an aim-map match that will not be streamed to find out who gets the #1 seed." why not stream that as well?

2014-01-15 11:10
I dont understand this tournament form. Can someone ELI5?
2014-01-15 13:02
Hoping coL is still playing as well as they did at DHW. Pretty excited for this tournament, even with all these European teams dropping out.
2014-01-15 13:06
Too bad we can't see the aim map match, that will be fcking sick esp scream
2014-01-15 13:13
stream aim map!

GL Titan!
2014-01-15 13:28

2014-01-15 13:50
Americans know why they wont stream dat aim map. It would be kinda humiliating to see scream alone raping.

This whole NA vs. Europe thing is hilarious. The only teams that give Americans problems are Swedish\French teams, which is generally the case for all the other European teams. Stop piggybacking on the success of Sweden\France.

wow, looks like someone is kinda butthurt. i was totally honest, since i think a win would boost your scene a lot. would be sad if a EU team wins in a tournament...where basically only NA teams attend.

Ok. Let's put mouse sports, sk, US, cph wolves, clan mystic, coL in a tournament. Would it be sad if coL won? Simply put, it's fnatic, nip and Titan. Everyone else is in the same boat. Col, and eu teams.
2014-01-16 21:55
Cant wait. Go coL! Hoping for an "upset".
