4:00 pm: TBD vs TBD (Third Place Match - Losers of Saturday's Semifinals)

The NA challenger promotion tourney is going on as well featuring four teams to let the winner earn themselves a spot at the Spring Promotion series for 2014.

All games except for the Regional Finals going to be in a Bo3 format in a single elimination bracket.

The Regional Finals will be in a Bo5 instead.

It seems that out of the six teams playing in the playoffs, only five of the six will secure their spot for Season 4 of NA LCS in the spring split.

Can't wait for the regionals, I wonder if TSM can finally take down CLG(whom they're 0-4 against) to even have a chance at worlds or if CLG will sweep them again. It'll also be interesting to see the old veteran teams of Curse and Dignitas fight to have a chance at Cloud 9 and worlds as well as the unlikely upset that C9 might not even be able to make it to worlds!


Making this topic a bit earlier to get people informed, it should start in about four hours for LCS and in 30 minutes for Challenger games.

TSM vs CLG is going to be entertaining, mostly because there's going to be a crowd either going insane if TSM wins or silent if TSM loses.

I love how if you watch it on YouTube you can hear the producer/etc talking and getting everything set up.

Anyone know where I can watch the matches after they are done?

as far as I am aware if you just leave the YouTube stream open you can then just scroll back when you get home to what ever point you want to watch.

Just use the sites listed, they almost all have VoD tabs on them or detailed match history and game links if you miss them.

The youtube links are for each day, once the day is done, the link is reused as a VoD for coverage for that day.
