IWC All-Star Results
The International Wildcard All-Star event concluded this weekend!
After four days of action, the CIS (Russia) All-Star team finished in first place, earning themselves a spot at the upcoming All-Star 2015 event!
From the Lolesports winners article:
The 2015 Wildcard circuit came to a close today as Commonwealth of Independent States edged out Turkey by 10 points to claim victory. Thousands of fans at Margaret Court Arena watched CIS' Mykhailo 'Kira' Harmash take out Latin America's Ali 'Seiya' Bracamontes in the 1v1 grand final, securing a minimum of 100 points for his region.
Although Turkey won the 5v5 grand final in a tense 3-1, none of the Turkish players made the top 8 of the 1v1 tournament, giving them 90 points overall.
CIS will move on to the 2015 All-Star Event, to be held at the NA LCS studio in Los Angeles. ASE will run from December 11-14 - check out more details here."
