Recently we witnessed the spectacular Grand Final of the OnGameNet Spring Championship between the two brother teams of  Maximum Impact Gaming.  MiG.Blaze quickly took down  MiG.Frost in a best of 5 series with a score of 3-0.The event was the first to hold a prizepool above $100,000 in the League of Legends scene, with the winner taking home an astonishing $88,000. A lot of line-up changes in the Korea took place shortly after the Spring Championship, so we will have to wait and see which team comes out strongest!
 
Azubu LoL The Champions Summer 2012 will feature teams invited from all the League of Legends scenes across the globe, completed by teams that join through the qualifiers. With a prize pool of $129,000, a lot of money, fame and prestige is on the line. The winner takes home $43,300, which is yet again a huge amount of money.

The prize pool is really wierd here. At the bottom you write the Prize Pool is 86,600$ but in your text it´s 129000$ and 43300 for the first.

What do you guys think of this... Say Prime losses first three matches, and their last match is against EU and EU needs to win to go on... As a smart company move does Prime let EU win to secure a CLG team in the Round of 8? Just wondering what the communities view is on this. Or another scenario... Say EU is 3-0 going into final match and Prime is 2-1, if giving the win to Prime secures 2 teams into round of 8 does CLG do it? Is this wrong or is that the upside of having two teams in a tourney. I guess this would be like in racing when a team driver helps another driver secure circuit cup points or a victory even sometimes, the ole "Shake n' Bake" from Talladega Nights! lol

Is RoMg Iranian? Because it looks like the flag of Iran. The OGN website says they are Korean though. And their names are Korean. I suppose they can be Korean Iranian...but I doubt it.

I think they are just Korean, and there was also just one RoMg team. Najin Sword qualified against Relive

Already wrote it under another article but probably here it is better. MiG Blaze and MiG Frost are now Azubu Blaze and Azubu Frost because MiG have been picked up by Azubu.

LOL @RoMg, first ever middle eastern LoL team to participate in a large tourney?
Desiire 2 years, 4 months ago
I thought they were Korean as it was displayed somewhere else that they were Korean.
