[7:46pm] In today's last match MaNa managed to reach the round of four. Tomorrow we will get one step closer the gamescom's champions. All four semi finals of League of Legends and StarCraft II will be played. Cu tomorrow!
[6:30pm] Group A's last KiLLeR is still the only one in the entire tournament, who won a map against MC. Korea's dreaded Protoss moves the tomorrow's semis after defeating SeleCt 3 0, where he will meet the winner of today's last match MaNa vs. mOOnGLaDe .
[5:09pm] The third win for Counter Logic Gaming in their group implies not only the first place of group B, but also to absolve tomorrow's first game at 09:10 CEST against Millenium. SK vs. Frag eXe needs still to be played, but that won't happen on the stream unfortunately. We are back in a few minutes with StarCraft II.
[3:35pm] With Counter Logic Gaming winning over SK Gaming all playoff participants are known, although two matches have still to be played. SK is eliminated, but will be seen tomorrow again in the final of the ESL Major Series VIII, which will be played live here at gamescom. If CLG want to avoid meeting their fellow-countrymen from Solomid in their first playoff match, they have to win against fnatic now.
[2:30pm] Another Eastern European player leaves the playoffs. PuMa made short shrift of Socke had a bad start losing the first map on Tal Darim Altar to Kas. After that he avoided to do any more mistakes and went to a straight three map win series becoming the first semi finalist to be known. Next match will be Nerchio vs. PuMa , while LoL action continues on Stage 2 stream with fnatic and Frag eXecutors.
[11:55am] After a long, close and very intense match fnatic came out on top with most of their damage coming from LaMiaZeaLoT, who played an amazing Tristana. We will now Socke vs. Kas in the first playoff match here in Cologne, while League of Legends will continue on Stage 2 stream.
[11:00am] Finally the first LoL match is live. As expected we won't see either Shushei's Gragas nor WickD's Irelia, since the respective opponent banned them. Nevertheless this match will be very important for group B's outcome. Lineups: SK: Udyr (WetDreaM) / Lee Sin (Wickd) / Soraka (Nyph) / Ashe (Candy Panda) / Anivia (ocelote) fnatic: Amumu (Cyanide) / Brand (Shushei) / Janna (Mellisan) / Annie (xPeke) / Tristana (LaMiaZeaLoT) Bans: Nocturne, Irelia, Gangplank, Nidalee, Gragas, Orianna
[10:10am] Fun, fun, fun, that's what Friday is! And this Friday is all about the StarCraft II Quarter Finals as well as group B of our League of Legends tournament with SK Gaming, fnatic, Frag eXecutors and CLG from America. Now head over to ESL TV and join the show, as we will start any minute.
