FACEIT, Turner with Las Vegas event

FACEIT have just announced a two-team $50,000 event in cooperation with Turner and WME | IMG, taking place at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada on January 7th. A two-stage qualifying phase has also been revealed.

The tournament will only feature two teams, one from Europe and one from North America, and will serve as a "precursor" to the recently announced televized $1.2M E-League by Turner and WME | IMG, according to the announcement.

Road To Las Vegas will feature two separate qualifying stages for both regions, starting with an Open round on December 12-13.

Closed qualifiers are set to be played from December 15-18 and they will be streamed on Twitch by FACEIT.

December 12 - EU Open Qualifier #1
December 12 - NA Open Qualifier #1
December 13 - EU Open Qualifier #2

Good idea, an allstar BO5 would be interesting, with mixedup teams from NA, SA and EU.

I know, I wasn't disagreeing with that. I'm saying the article is wrong, and that the match has nothing to do with that.

A NA team will make top 2 at an international event :)
2015-12-07 21:02
Will it be on TV and twitch?
2015-12-07 21:35
I live in Vegas so this is cool news. Thing is.. CES isn't open to the public, so I don't think that they'll be showing the match publicly unless they make some sort of compromise with the Las Vegas convention center. :/
2015-12-07 22:16
why NA vs EU Why would Turner make their first CS event a boring stomp
2015-12-08 00:16
because Yurope is too poor to host their own televised league, that's why
2015-12-08 05:24
