FACEIT S2 LAN viewer's guide
With the FACEIT League Season 2 LAN Finals kicking off in just a matter of hours, here is our official viewer's guide for the $44,000 event.
Held in Milan as part of the city's Games Week fair, the FACEIT League LAN finals will see the top four teams from the European division and the top two sides from the North American division lock horns in this three-day event.
These six contestants have been drawn into two groups of three teams, who will face each other twice in a best-of-one format. The top two sides from each group will progress to the best-of-three semi-finals, while the grand final will use a best-of-five setup.
It is worth nothing that every team in attendance will be in Jönköping next month for DreamHack Winter, so they will use this event as preparation for the upcoming $250,000 major.
In addition to the $44,000 up for grabs in Milan, an additional $9,000 will be given to the organisations in the form of travel support. Below you can find the prize distribution:
