NBWith only two weeks remaining before the mid-season invitational the next two weeks will be filled with intense competition as the teams all vie to qualify for the first major tournament of the season. Games are every Friday and Saturday beginning at 7pm and 11am respectively and can be watched live on the official Twitch broadcast.
NBA wasn’t the only sports franchise getting connecting with esports fans this past week as there was also significant international competition in Fifa. The eclub world cup took place this past weekend and it was Brøndby Esports who retained their title as world champions.
The weekend also saw divisional qualifiers take place for the eWorld Cup taking place in London August 2nd-4th. Champions were crowned for Playstation (Deto) and Xbox (Gorilla) who both earned themselves a spot in London.
The weekend wasn’t over just yet however as the two had two square off, but Gorilla was able to dominate the game and earn himself a decisive victory to be crowned the 2018 Fifa Interactive World Champion.
Dreamhack brought Quake Champions action to France this past weekend in the inaugural lan event of the 2018 season. Team Liquid dominated the weekend emerging victorious and only dropping a single map in that entire process. The duo of Rapha and DaHanG were expected to do well at this event, but they appeared leaps and bounds ahead of all the competition.
Cooler’s AMD unfortunately was on the same side of the bracket as Liquid in the playoffs, and were unable to even take a game from the eventual champs leaving them in the top four. Sleep to Awake, the duo of Clawz and Silencep, emerged from the other side of the bracket to square off against Liquid. They proved to be a definitive second place team being the only ones to take a map from Liquid all weekend, but even they ultimately proved to be no match for the legendary Rapha.
The next major Quake Lan event will be at Quakecon in August.
