WePlay! Forge of Masters S1 Finals set to start
The first season of the WePlay! Forge of Masters will come to a close this weekend as four teams will duke it out for the grand prize of $20,000.
The Expo Center of Ukraine, in Kiev, will stage over the next three days the offline finals of the WePlay! Forge of Masters, a $50,000 tournament featuring teams from the CIS region.
The online portion of the tournament saw HellRaisers, AVANGAR, Vega Squadron and DreamEaters earn spots at the main event, with these four teams now set to compete in a best-of-three, double-elimination bracket.
AVANGAR head into the event with confidence sky high after winning DreamHack Open Rio over local heroes FURIA. In this tournament, the Kazakhstani side, currently ranked 14th in the world, will face strong opposition from HellRaisers, who beat BIG and ex-3DMAX in the first round of ESL Pro League Europe, and Vega Squadron, who will attend their first LAN with the new roster.
Hugo Byron and Tom "Tombizz" Bissmire will provide live commentary on the official English stream, with the full schedule looking as follows:
Friday, May 3
Saturday, May 4
14:00 Lower Bracket final
17:00 Upper Bracket final
