League of Legends worlds finalists decided!

League of Legends world championships finals will show an intense match between SK Telecom T1 & Royal Club.

I waited with baited breath on Saturday night to see who would go through from the second semi-final match into the finals. Would our European heroes, FNATIC, be proving that EU had what it took to reach the finals, or would Chinese top seed Royal Club take the win?

It was a tough series to watch, and while the outcome wasn’t in Europe’s favour I can say that I am proud of FNATIC’s performance. They played incredibly well, and proved themselves to be world class competitors in League of Legends. They may not have won, but they did well and the matches were really entertaining to watch. Congratulations to Royal Club for making it through, and GGWP to FNATIC for an amazing series. Can’t wait to see where Season 4 takes you!

That leaves us with the finals happening on Friday evening, and I think I speak for all of us when I say how ridiculously excited I am. We’re attending an event at our offices, and will be playing games right up until the games kick off. I’m very curious as to who will take the cup, as both teams have really strong players. Faker is obviously a favourite, but Uzi and Tabe have proven time and time again to be an awesome combo. Definitely hoping for a five-game series! Where will you be spending the finals?

League of Legends worlds semi-finals start today!

The League of Legends worlds semi-finals start today!The League of Legends Season 3 World Championships have been raging on for the last few weeks, and as a European player last weekend I was biting my nails watching the FNATIC vs Cloud9 match, hoping I’d be seeing my region playing again soon! Unfortunately Gambit didn’t make it through, but I’m excited to know that later today (since it’s technically semis day!) I’ll be able to watch an EU team play once again thanks to FNATIC’s impressive victory last weekend.

The semis kick off at 4:00am, in just under four hours, with two Korean giants, SK Telecom T1 facing off against Najin Black Sword. Later on, at 8:00pm we’ll get to see the terrifying Chinese top seed, Royal Club, playing against the Season 1 winners, FNATIC.

While I’ll be watching both matches, I’m really looking forward to the latter. I’m nervous for FNATIC; Royal is an amazing team and they played incredibly well in their quarters match against fellow Chinese team OMG. I’ve got beers and girlie alcopops in the fridge ready for the match, and I’ve cancelled my streaming plans for tomorrow evening. I may invite fellow fans to join me in my Twitch chat to hang out and chat about the games before, during and after. How will you be watching the semi-finals?
