The semi-finals of the European Regionals saw Europe's top four teams fighting for their eSports career futures in a furious attempt to secure a spot at the World Championships and Season Three. By RiotRara.
Here in Cologne, Germany, the weather was hot, the convention halls were packed, and SK Gaming, Acer Poland, Counter Logic Gaming Europe, and ALTERNATE fought heated battles to make it to the semifinals.
An hour before today’s matches began, fans populated the spectating area, crowding every and any free space to watch the first half of the quarter final round where FnaticRaidCall/Curse Europe and Moscow 5/EloHell.net battled to advance in the elimination bracket.
The European Challenger Circuit ended with the conclusion of ECC: Poland, but Season Two has yet to close doors. The top 8 European teams must fight at Regionals for three of eight spots at the World Qualifiers, where they have a chance to represent their country and region.
