posted by Camouflage23, 2 years ago
The hosts of the Kings of Europe tournament have announced a new tournament format named Tales of the Lane a while ago. They have been collecting donations and have even exceeded their goal of € 80,000. With enough money to be able to host the tournament, which will be partly held online and partly offline, they were able to announce the participants and the schedule.

Tales of the Lane will provide the top tier teams of the European competitive scene. Only eu CLG had to turn down the invitation because of other tournaments they are attending in North America.

ru Moscow Five
eu Curse Gaming
eu Team Alternate
eu SK Gaming
eu Fnatic RaidCall
eu Eclypsia.Solaris
pl MeetYourMakers
eu Mousesports
eu Tt Dragons
eu IWantCookie


eu Tt Dragons are replacing CLG while eu IWantCookie was invited because fr Millenium disbanded prior the tournament. The tenth team was determined by a fan-voting on TotL's facebook page. The users were able to decide between de Team Acer, eu Team BLACK, pl Warsaw Five and the team who eventually won the voting eu Team Alternate.


Format:

  • The ten teams are split into two groups of five.
  • Round Robin, each game Best-of-One.
  • The winner of each group directly qualifies for the semifinals.
  • Second and Third of each group battle each other for two remaining slots in the semifinals.

group B is harder than group A by far
and i think
Group A : Alternate (Strong atm) - Fnatic (not playing that well in the last few weeks) - SK (Stronger than the rest)
Group B : Curse.EU (Very very strong atm and won the last BO3 against ATN) - M5 (Online Tournment --> M5 wont play good for some reason) - EC.S (but i hope IWC)

MYM wont make it since they dont stop losing against IWC in skrims
Mousesports and Tt Dragon could both make it to the 3rd spot of SK but surely not first or second!

ATN and mousesports are moving on.
And FnaticRC is out, since they lost to both of them in the group.
