SINGAPORE - Media OutReach - 30 April 2020 - The stage is set for the crowning of the first LoL PCS Champion, with the conclusion of the nine-week competition happening this weekend. With three matches left to be played, only four teams remain -- Machi Esports (MCX), Talon Esports (TLN), Hong Kong Attitude (HKA) and ahq eSports club (AHQ).
After previously defeating TLN in the Upper Bracket semifinals, MCX secured the first spot in the Finals on Sunday, at 5pm (GMT +8). The win solidifies MCX's dominant season so far, who will be the favourites heading into the Finals for the opportunity to win up to US$30,000 in prize money.
Three teams from the Lower Bracket will battle it out on Saturday, 2 May, for a spot in the Finals on Sunday. Underdogs HKA will look to defy expectations once more by taking on AHQ in a Best-of-3, at 3pm (GMT +8). The winner of that match will immediately advance to the semifinals, where TLN awaits them in a Best-of-5.
