Who do we get to see playing?
While two weeks of play are still to be done, there is at least a group of favorites to advance to the very first finals. In Europe Team SoloMid is having a 12 point lead on the next in line teams and is the first team so far set for the finals. However, as Fnatic, Virtus.pro, EnVyUs, Ninjas in Pyjamas and HellRaisers are all sitting on 36 points, the upcoming matches will decide who makes it to the top four and takes the step to the finals in Cologne.
