SLTV StarSeries X with $30,000 *
SLTV Starseries Season X has been announced, once again boasting a $30,000 prize pool with sixteen teams competing for the title.
The season is set to start just three days from now on June 24 and will run through until August 8.
The online portion of the tournament is set to be held in round robin format, with the winning team earning three points, and both sides receiving one point each in the event of a draw.
Each of the top four teams at the end of the online season will be invited to Kiev to battle it out for the title of SLTV Starseries Champions and the first place prize of $14,000.
Reigning champions Na`Vi look to defend title
Na`Vi defeated the Swedes of NiP in the grand final last season while on home soil, with Titan rounding out the podium in third and Virtus.pro finishing fourth as the last team to receive prize money.
The LAN final will be held from August 30-31 in Kiev, Ukraine at the Kiev eSports Arena.
It will be a double elimination bracket, with all matches to be played in a best of three format. The grand final will be a best of five with the team from the winners bracket starting with a 1-0 advantage.
As of now ten participating teams have been announced, leaving six spots open with presumably more big names to come.
* Update: Prize distribution has been altered, and the remaining $8,000 will be forwarded and split between the four attendees of the LAN Finals as travel support
