Tickets will be available in early April.
Shouldn’t be in the “EPICENTER Moscow regional qualifiers teams” part:
– TBD (winner of open qualifier)
– TBD (runner-up of open qualifier)
Even if both qualify, the fact that there’s a best-of-one between them, will make them get a different position (1st and 2nd).
I also want DiG to go as far as possible in the tournament for syndereN and Zai’s sake.March 11, 2016 at 6:00 pm

Since 2 teams advance, they don’t necessarily need to play each other. While the brackets and format show a bo1 final, it is highly possible that it is a formatting requirement and won’t actually be played. We’ll find out tonight for sure when it’s all said and done!March 11, 2016 at 6:12 pm
