Tales of the Lane Tournament Preview!
posted by Camouflage23, 2 years agoThe 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 CLG had to turn down the invitation because of other tournaments they are attending in North America.
Here is the full roster of teams participating in the tournament:
Tt Dragons are replacing CLG while IWantCookie was invited because 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 Team Acer, Team BLACK, Warsaw Five and the team who eventually won the voting Team Alternate.
