Uprise Champions Cup Europe scheduled LAN finals will now be held online due to scheduling conflicts. The four teams – T.RoX, NLG, YeS and ATN will now compete between February 1st-8th from the comforts of their own homes. The CS:GO segment that was planned will still be held at the end of January in Moscow, Russia.
Originally scheduled to include a LAN final, Uprise Champions Cup Europe had to make some last minute changes to the format and schedule due to conflicts. Instead, the Dota 2 segment of the tournament will be played entirely online with the playoffs and finals taking place the first week of February, 1st-8th.
T.RoX, No Logic Gaming, YeS and Team Alternate will compete for the $10,000 prize pool.
“The LAN finals of Uprise Champions European Cup was supposed to be held at the end of this month but several schedule conflicts with other tournaments made the organizers switch to an online final stage”
– Andrew “ho8ot” Mikheev, Administrator
The finals will be a double elimination, best-of-three series
