What to watch? April 9-14 ⚡⚡⚡ Esports and gaming news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!
Dozens of matches are played in many different esports disciplines every day. It’s very easy to get lost in the mad turmoil of the competitions, that's why we started a heading “What to watch?”
We will choose five tournaments every week, which we think should be watched. Today we will talk about the matches that will be played from April 9 to 14. Ready, steady, go!
Forge of Masters. WePlay! League
Dates: April 8 - May 5
Prize pool: $50.000
Stream: WePlay! Esports
We recommend CS:GO fans to pay attention to the WePlay! tournament. Eight teams from the CIS region of varying “star-ish” degrees will fight against each other for a cash bonus and the right to play at the LAN-finals in Kyiv.
The first game day has already given us surprises, and we are sure that everything will be just more interesting. Taking into account the fact that many teams have changed their line-ups before the tournament, several “fives” will debut at the Forge of Masters in official matches at once.
Original ideas on the stream supplement all this by the WePlay! production team, and we get a tournament that will be a shame to miss!
GG.Bet Invitational Birmingham
Discipline: Dota 2
Dates: April 8 - 13
Prize pool: $5.000 and slot for ESL One Birmingham
ESL holds four regional Qualifiers for ESL One Birmingham this week. “Losers’ matches” in both groups are expected on April 10. Alliance is already in semi-finals, waiting for their rivals. The tournament scheme is standard - a group stage in GSL format with Bo1-matches of the first round and the rest of the matches up to two victories (while the champion of the tournament will be determined in a five-set match).
Taking into account the fact that there are still two weeks before the start of the Minor, GG.Bet Invitational Birmingham is an excellent opportunity for all Dota 2 fans to satisfy the “competitive hunger”.
BLAST Pro Series: Miami 2019
Dates: April 12 - 13
Prize pool: $250.000
Five teams from the top 10 of the world, plus a promising Cloud9 roster - what else is needed for an intensive two-day tournament in one of the most magnificent cities in the USA? BLAST Pro Series fully disclose the idea of show tournaments, where the best of the best show what they can do here and now, without time to build up.
Therefore, the tournament should be treated first and foremost as a holiday - we are unlikely to see something fundamentally new here, but the pleasure of CS:GO performed by the masters of virtual firearms is guaranteed!
LCS Spring 2019
Discipline: League of Legends
Dates: January 26 - April 13
Prize pool: $200.000 and slot for Mid-Season Invitational
Stream: Riot Games
One of the main LoL leagues will come to an end on Sunday night. There is only one match left - the final one. Team Liquid and Team SoloMid will fight for the title of split champion on April 13 at 10 pm CEST (1 pm PDT).
Team Liquid is the favourite of this match, they won the regular season with 14-4 stats and didn’t experience any problems in the semi-final against FlyQuest. However, Team SoloMid held the hardest match against Cloud9, in which they won with a score of 3:2.
The participation in the prestigious Mid-Season Invitational is on the line. The event will be held in early May in Vietnam and Taiwan, and we have no doubts that we will watch an extremely dramatic match, full of the hardest struggle.
2019 Global StarCraft II League Season 1: Code S
Discipline: StarCraft II
Dates: February 2 - April 13
Prize pool: $150.000 and slot for WCS Global Finals
This tournament also has only one match left to play. Protoss Classic and Terran Maru will decide in a fair fight which of them is worthy of joining soO in the list of WCS Global Finals participants.
Classic confidently spent two group stages, but in the Playoffs, vice versa, problems began, and each of his matches he won with a minimum score (3:2 against Rogue, 4:3 against Dark). Maru's situation is precisely the opposite - he took only second place in the round of sixteen, quartet A, but in the playoffs, he lost only one map (3:1 against Dear, 4:0 against Trap). In the WCS Korea ranking, rivals are located on the third and fourth lines, and we believe that StarCraft fans won't be disappointed!
