What’s Happening This Weekend (Feb. 24-25)?

If esports is what you love, this weekend is going to be a real treat for you. In fact, there’s a bit of a possibility that you might overdose on esports if you try to watch everything that’s going to be taking place over the weekend.


StarLadder & i-League StarSeries Season 4 Playoffs

The biggest event for the majority of our users will be the playoffs of this tournament.

The Quarterfinals are already taking place. At the time of writing, Team Liquid has already sensationally defeated SK Gaming to earn their spot in the Semifinals and the match between FaZe Clan and Renegades is live.

With the upset that’s already happened, it’s hard to tell what awaits us in the near future. For all we know, the Semifinals tomorrow could be completely different from what we expect them to be.

Dota 2

For the people who prefer Dota 2, there’s the first ever Dota 2 Major to take place in Poland, ESL One Katowice 2018. Currently, the event is nearing its last stages, the action is set to be concluded on Sunday.

Currently, we have five teams qualified for the Playoffs, with Team Secret facing Team Liquid in the Quarterfinals and awaiting their own opponent. Fnatic and Vici Gaming are already in the Semifinals and will face the winners of the Quarterfinals matches.

With $1,000,000 USD on the line, you should definitely tune in if Dota 2 is at least a game you occasionally play. If you are a fan of it? Definitely watch this tournament, it’s great.

League of Legends

Just like always, there is the League of Legends Championship Series matches to look forward to for any League of Legends fans out there on DrakeLounge. Probably the most exciting will be the games in Europe and North America. European games will start on Friday and end on Saturday, while NA starts on Saturday and ends on Sunday.

Today in Europe, there will be an exciting match between Team Vitality and Giants Gaming, the former leader which fell after a disastrous Week 5 and their closest challenger. On Saturday, Fnatic and G2 Esports will face off for the lead in the group. That promises to be an amazing match to watch, two of the teams that dominated Europe for multiple seasons will meet in battle once again.

In North America, there’s always watching Echo Fox, wondering if they can keep winning. This week, they will play against Team SoloMid on Saturday and Team Liquid on Sunday. If they can come out with a 2-0 against the two teams predicted to be the favorites of the league, Echo Fox will be the legit best team in the North American LCS.


That’s all, folks! We’ve given you the options, now it’s your turn to choose what to watch. Unless you want to be a badass and watch everything?
