Leaguepedia hosts invitational tournament
Tournament Featured by Bioe 2 years, 3 months ago

Team Green Forest and " xHazzard's team" have been replaced by Lzuruha Gaming and Kill Steal Gaming.

Due to TGF being unable to field a full roster of players, they have opted to forfeit out of the tournament. The team which was formerly known as "xHazzard's team" will have to find another name for their team as xHazzard has joined Monomaniac eSports.

KSG will face Team Dignitas in the first round of the tournament while Lzh will face Team Curse.

More information will be updated as released.

Leaguepedia, a League of Legends wikipedia site run by Absolute Legends, will host the "Leaguepedia NA Invitationals" starting 5:00 p.m. June 29. The tournament will feature 16 teams (including  CLG Black) who will compete for gaming gear provided by the sponsors of the tournament as well as a tentative $5000 prize pool.

There's an old Native American saying that says "If you chase two rabbits a, you will lose both." This weekend will be a nice spectacle as  TSM Evo,  Team Dynamic,  Team Curse,  Orbit Gaming,  mTw.NA ,  Dirtnap Gaming,  4Nothing and  Monomaniac eSports will all be chasing two rabbits as they are all booked to perform at the SoloMid.net Weekly Invitational and the Leaguepedia NA Invitational which will be running back to back without rest. Whether or not these teams will be performing in both tournaments is yet to be determined. But, with the amount cash prizes at the end of each of tournament, who can blame them for trying?

The tournament will be played in a single elimination bracket with all matched in the best-of-three sets, and the number of available bans have been raised to eight as each team will be allowed four bans per round. The tournament will also be stream on twitch.tv and will be casted by  Tom "Optimus Tom" Searfoss and  Randall "Wombat" Fitzgerald.

This article needs serious editing (most importantly, get the names of the sponsors right - "Gunnar Optiks" and "Razer")... Thanks for the info though.
