SLTV StarSeries IX viewer's guide

Curious to find out when your favorite team will take the stage in Kiev this weekend? Look no further, as we present you our official viewer's guide.

SLTV StarSeries IX Finals will offer a hefty $30,000 in prize money, an increase of 100% from the previous season's $15,000, with the winners going home $14,000 richer.

Originally the four teams making the trip to Kiev were supposed to be NiP, Titan, Virtus.pro and fnatic, but the DreamHack Winter champions decided to not attend the finals.

VeryGames kennyS

kennyS makes his debut in Titan today 

Replacing fnatic are Natus Vincere, who finished first runner-ups to the four finalists in the regular season. In the first round they will face the number one seeded NiP.

Titan, who shocked the scene last week by recruiting Kenny "kennyS" Schrub to replace the departed Richard "shox" Papillon, will debut with their new lineup later today against Virtus.pro.

Friday, May 2
15:00 Sweden NiP vs. Ukraine Natus Vincere BO3
18:30 France Titan vs. Poland Virtus.pro BO3
Saturday, May 3
15:00 Lower bracket final BO3
18:30 Upper bracket final BO3
Sunday, May 4
14:00 Consolidation final BO3
18:00 Grand final BO5

The entire event will be played using a double elimination best-of-three system and a seven map pool. Grand final will be played out in a best-of-five, with the team coming from upper bracket up 1-0.

SLTV StarSeries IX Finals will officially kick off in just over two hours from now. Action will continue until Sunday evening, when the new champions will be crowned.

YES, IT IS.
2014-05-02 13:01
But Valve supports only major event like DH or EMS, is it really that hard to understand?
2014-05-02 13:02
But they still don't support it as much, so that doesn't rly matter now does it?

because dota2 has more big future than csgo. also which means they can make more money out of it. if csgo player base increased immense we would have like that Big tournaments. SLTV DOTA2 has 80k prize and community raised 150k.
2014-05-02 14:31
Dota has way bigger community. Dota players give money to the prize pool.
2014-05-02 14:39

kennyS needs to grow a pair of b*llocks! VeryGames ditched him like a b*tch then when they ask him to rejoin he goes crawling back like a p*ssy. Have some self respect Kenny.

They ditched him because he was being a bitch If he is no longer being a bitch, i'd say it's worth being n1 cs:go team of the world so both parties should just suck it up and move on.
