StarLadder Season 2 Finals - Day One Cov
Hello everyone from Kiev, where today the SLTV Star Series Season 2 LAN finals start. While originally 6 teams had to attend the event, only 5 made their way to Kiev. Just few days before the tournament EG and Keita dropped out and mTw were not able to attend. The replacement was made by Empire, but the 6th team is still missing. This means that 4 teams from Ukraine and Russia will defend their ground and the only international team in Kiev will be mousesports.
