The ESL Pro Series Poland Season V is ready to kick off the LAN finals taking place in the ESL studio in Tychy. 8,800 PLN (roughly $2,850) will be up for grabs on Sunday, February 17th for the three best teams among ESC Gaming, MaxFloPlay, DELTA and SYS-Gaming.
The online group stage saw eight teams battling out for the top4 placing. MaxFloPlay seemed to have little trouble to deal with their contenders except for the four time EPS champions.
ESC Gaming's results were not as confident as they lost 16-6 to DELTA, which led to a three-way tie between the two and MaxFloPlay following a 6-0-1 score each. Due to round difference, MaxFloPlay took first, ESC second and DELTA third place in the standings.
SYS-Gaming secured themselves the last spot in the LAN finals with three wins, one tie and three losses to teams mentioned above.
