Azubu Blaze, Team SoloMid, and Curse join Team BLACK in MLG Summer Arena
With the conclusion of the MLG Summer Arena NA Online Qualifiers, the four teams making their way to New York City for the first League of Legends Arena have now been revealed. Curse and Team Black, the winners of the North American and European qualifiers will join the two invited teams, Team SoloMid and Azubu Blaze. The introduction of the Korean Azubu Blaze marks the first time the North American powerhouse will face a Korean team in a tournament.
Previously, MLG had only revealed that four teams total would compete in this first arena, with two qualifying teams coming from the online qualifiers and two unannounced invited teams. However, with only two qualifiers no one knew who the other two teams invited would be until now.
These four teams will be flown by MLG to NYC to compete for the first place prize of $10,000 from August 3rd through the 5th. Casting will be done by Leigh Smith (Deman), Dan Dinh, and Trevor Henry (Quickshot).
