TSM Invitational #4 Day 2
by Mowen July 9, 2012 @ 01:07am
mTw put up a fight for first again this weekend, staying in the winner's bracket until they faced Orbit. Once they dropped to the losers bracket they proceeded to beat TSM 2-0 so that they could face Orbit one more time. Sadly for mTw Orbit won the finals match for $1200. Although picking up $500 for 2nd place is not bad either.
I think this tournament made TSM more wary of their competitors. At times the LoL competitive scene has seemed like only a few giants amongst a sea of lesser teams. These SoloMid Invitationals have really given the less popular teams a chance to shine, and have showed viewers they can play on the same level as TSM and CLG.
It is unfortunate that DDoS attacks have become such an issue for online League of Legends tournaments, and that they continue to plague TSM's tournaments in particular. If you are concerned about protecting yourself from DDoS attacks I would suggest reading TheAldo's article on how to protect yourself. While DDoS'ers typically only target internet celebrities it can never hurt to be cautious.
Thanks for reading!
