The Swiss national Qualifier für the IeSF 2013 World Championship in Bucharest, Romania has concluded. After a tough and tight double-elimination tournament, Dennis “Koala” Berg, captain of the mYinsanity Heimerdingers, and his team clearly decided the grand finals in their favor, with a 2:0 victory over Jacob “Guardian Jack” Dietsche’s Swiss Bulls. The Heimerdingers remain only one single step away from the IeSF 2013 World Championship. Admitedly not entirely unexpected, but against all the hopes of the SESF, too many European Nations have decided to send a League of Legends team to the World Championship. Thus, the IeSF is forced to hold one last deciding online qualifier.
IeSF 2013 Euro Online Qualifier
The categorie “League of Legends” of this year’s IeSF World Championship has raised a huge amount of interest among the European member associations. 16 nations decided to send a League of Legends team. However, only 9 spots are available to the European nations at the world championship. That’s why there will be a final online preliminary held by the IeSF in September, to decide which 9 of the 16 teams (Austria, Azerbaijan, Belgium, Bulgaria, Denmark, Finland, France, Georgia, Israel, Netherlands, Portugal, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey) will finally be invited to the championship in October/November.
The teams will be split in two groups according to their LoL-Server region:
Group A (EU West): Austria, Belgium, France, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland
Group B (EU Nordic&East): Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Denmark, Finland, Georgia, Israel, Russia, Sweden, Turkey
A double-elimination (bo1) bracket will be played in each group until it is decided which are the top 4 teams in group A, and the top 5 teams in group B respectively. These 9 teams will finally be able to call themsels IeSF 2013 World Championship competitors!
