Gamescom and PAX schedule announcement
The Gamescom and PAX Regionals mark the start of the journey to the World Championships for North America, Europe and five International teams. It also continues the path to pro for a few battle-hardened Challenger teams.
From August 21-25, the top six teams from the EU LCS clash in Cologne, Germany. The teams that place top three will earn a berth into the World Championships, while the No. 6 finisher drops into the spring promotion tournament for one chance to avoid relegation. Meanwhile, five international teams play one another for the sole Wildcard slot at Worlds. Lastly, four challenger teams from the Gamescom Qualifier throw down to decide which team will play in the spring 2014 promotion tournament and possibly go pro in the LCS.
