League of Legends: Season 3 Championship Finals Tonight!
League of Legends Season 3 World Championships wraps up tonight as Korea’s SKT T1 squares off against China’s Royal Club at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. This is the grand final of the whole event since only 14 teams from around the world actually qualified for the cup. Royal Club was seeded directly into the quarter-finals stage due to taking 1st overall in the Chinese regionals. They managed to ace their Chinese regional counterparts OMG (2-0) and shredding Europe’s Fnatic to get to the finals. SKT T1 had a slightly tougher route and had to work their way through the group stage to get to this point. SKT T1 emerged from Group A with a 7-1 record with OMG right behind them (also at 7-1 but the tiebreaker went to SKT T1). In the quarter finals, they defeated the Gamania Bears along with fellow Koreans Najin Blacksword (barely at 3-2) to earn the other position in the final.
Watch it tonight on LoLesports at 8 PM PDT (05:00 CEST).
My money’s going to be on Royal Club. I’m expecting a strong start out of the gate for them before they completely dismantle SKT T1 with a 3-1 match finish. If you don’t want to watch alone, see if you can find other spectators in the League of Legends Viewing Party program. Who are you cheering for?
