Following the conclusion of the online group stage, the playoffs for the ESL Polish Championship Autumn 2019 Finals are set to start.

Kicking off on November 30, the two-day tournament will feature four teams from Poland, who will battle it out in a single-elimination best-of-three bracket at the ESL Arena in Katowice for their shot at the majority of the $39,000 prize pool.

Illuminar are the highest-ranked team in attendance

Three out of four attending teams were originally invited to play in the group stage, while Wisla Krakow began the journey in the closed qualifier already, making it through the group stage soon after to secure their place in the finals.

The opening round matchups are as follows:

Saturday, November 30
17:00 - Poland AGO vs. Poland Aristocracy | BO3
20:00 - Poland Wisla Krakow vs. Poland Illuminar | BO3

The winner of the Polish event will also earn qualification to the IEM Katowice European closed qualifier, which is set to take place early in the new year from January 9-10.

yeah but its not not to mention that esl is a german company
2019-11-29 17:54
in ESL (like everywhere*) money > anything btw
2019-11-29 17:56
well dunno but with that price pool big would probably play in esl meisterschaft aswell rn its just uol,sprout and alternate

What's your point? Are you talking about 2019? To be honest - both countries sucks for a long time now. But still, Polish teams are a bit better. I can compare BIG to VP - both teams are disappointing their fans.
2019-11-29 18:02
how are polish teams better? big>vp sprout>vp/illuminar alternate>any other polish t2-3 team

Are you barin dead? we can agree with big>vp thing but c'mon bruv sprout isn't better then vp. IHG is at the same level as sprout , same thing with alternate they can have some serious problems with Wisla,Arcy and AGO :-)
2019-11-29 19:04
sprout has been beating illuminar alot recently even if some of the games were close id say the scenes are pretty even

Iluminnar beat sprout in Gdynia 2 months ago in bo5 match. They lose on dreamhack but match was really close. Alternate will be underdog in match vs top 5 polish teams. Polish cs sucks, but German sucks more ;)
