eSports Weekend Calendar: August 15 – 17, 2014
This weekend’s eSports calendar is all about Gamescom. Europe’s biggest gaming convention has events for Battlefield 4, Call of Duty, Guild Wars 2, Halo and more. The centrepiece of festivities is the ESL Tournament for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. The second in the ESL One line of tournament, ESL One: Cologne features a $250,000 CSGO tournament. ESL also just announced a Dota 2 ESL One tournament for Madison Square Garden later this year. I think that ESL One might quickly become a bigger deal than ESL’s IEM series.
Elsewhere, the EU LCS summer split comes to an end with the final four doing battle at Gamescom. OGN also wraps up its summer season this weekend. There’s also some SC2 and Dota 2 on the calendar this weekend.
