Welcome to the final day of the World Championship 2011/12!
[23:12] M5 dominated the first map and won with a score of 32:11 over Dignitas who did not really have any clue how to beat those Russians play. Now the second map is on and we are awaiting the possible last map in this season. Join us on ESL TV to not miss this big, big moment!
[21:17] MC did it! The revenge for Cologne is done. 3:2 is the score with which MC takes the title home. Right after the match he jumped up and grabed the trophy and cheered to his fans. Now we are looking forward to League of Legends to start.
[18:59] And we have the first World Champion of this season. The Polish ESC Gaming just won the Counter-Strike tournament with a 2-0 over defending champion Natus Vincere. The Poles win the title for the second time after they were the first champion in Season 1, 6 years ago.
Congratulations to ESC Gaming. They are the Intel Extreme Masters World Champion and win $50,000.

[22:37] What a fantastic day at the World Championship.
League of Legends gave us a breathtaking game between CLG and M5 where the Russians came back twice and won 2-0. They can not only be aggressive from the start, they can also fight back and dominate the late game.
League of Legends Grand Final Team Dignitas - Moscow 5
In Counter-Strike Na'Vi was waiting for a final opponent which would be decided between SK Gaming and ESC Gaming. After two maps the score was 1-1 and it all came down to the third which turned out to be a nailbiter that ended with 16-14 in ESCs favor. This means the Grand Final tomorrow will be a rematch of the last World Championship.
Counter-Strike Grand Final Natus Vincere - ESC Gaming
The second semi-final of StarCraft II is starting soon. Feast, the last foreigner in the tournament, is showing an incredible performance so far and took out Killer in the quarter-final. He is now facing MC in a PvP for the second spot in the final. The first was decided between MMA and PuMa. MMA had not dropped a single map so far in the tournament and started with a 1-0 lead over PuMa. But then the winner of the Global Challenge Cologne fought back and won the game with 3-1. One, if not the biggest upset of the tournament so far. MMA had been the favorite for many people.
