League of Legends: Team SoloMid Wins North American Regional Finals
The regional matches of North America started last week at PAX Prime with some of the best teams participating to win a spot in the Season 2 finals.
Dignitas surprised everyone when they defeated CLG 2-0 in the group matches to cruise into the finals. CLG, one of the favorites of the tournament had to settle for third place after they defeated Curse Gaming.
The final match took place between Dignitas and Team SoloMid, another one of the crowd favorites. This time though, SoloMid completely dominated their competition and took first place becoming the North American regional champions. Their 2-0 victory earned them $40,000 and marked their sixth major successful LAN event.
The top three teams from this event will move on forward to the Season 2 World Championship which takes place next month. These three will be joined by CLG.EU, SK Gaming, M5, World Elite, Invictus Gaming and Taipei Assassins, who already have qualified through their respective regional matches. This leaves three teams that are yet to come from Korea and South East Asia.
They all will be competing for the crown of being the best team of League of Legends.
