I've been pretty distracted with World of Warcraft lately and this event pretty much snuck up on me. The final event of the League of Legends season started yesterday and will be taking place today and tomorrow. They're cutting down to a top 2 which will play out next Saturday. Grand prize is one miiiiiiillion dollars with a total prize pool among the 12 teams of 2 million dollars. That's some pretty sweet cash for playing a game!
I intend to spend a good chunk of this weekend (when not doing my stupid WoW dailies) watching the games, assuming the streams are being archived somewhere. Riot is streaming in HD for free which is pretty sweet.
