The prizepool of the tournament is 1000$ and the money will distributed like this:

  • 1st place - 700$

Statement by our jungler Alvar 'Araneae' Martin:

"I think SK tourny is going to be really nice. We have a hard first match against Mousesport. Top bracket seems to be really hard with TSM, aAa, Fnatic, M5. We are training everyday to become better and better."

Both of the teams have had bad performances recently, both offline and online. The French team also went through a few lineup changes after the IEM Hannover, so they have not been playing together for very long. Winners of Season 1 Championship (FnaticRC) are probably the favourites in this matchup, but that does not mean that Millenium does not stand a chance. FnaticRC still struggles with their toplane, due to being used to play double AP, and their overall performance is not even close to Season 1. xPeke and Shushei often swap their roles and try to adapt to the new tanky/bruiser metagame. I think we will have a privilege to watch 3 games and all of them should be fairly close, but in the end, I believe that FnaticRC will take this series 2:1.

ESC is definitely a surprise in the semi-finals. Not many people expected them to win versus one of the favourites of the tournament SK-gaming. But with their amazing performance in the quarter-finals, especially by Bamboocha, DollaDro and their star player Play Int, they are a force to be reckoned with. Surely ESC showed that they are not afraid of anyone. Na`Vi has an amazing run in this tournament so far. They completely dominated mouz in round of 16, and continued their amazing play in the quarter-finals, where they have not lost a game to WW. I believe in our guys, so I will say that it will be 2:0 in the end, but I think that the games will be close and exciting! So go Na`Vi!

Na`Vi wins SK Trophy!


After getting revenge on FnaticRC from EMS qualifier and winning SK-Trophy, we managed to talk to our team-captain and ap carry player Victor 'CitizenWayne' Toll. Here is a short statement by him:

"We are very happy that we were able to win the SK Pro Trophy convincingly against some of the best teams in Europe. Also we were able to settle an old score with the boys from ESC :D. We are really excited about the progress we were already able to make so far, and, even though its a long way to go, we wont be content until we are the very best team in Europe. I can definitely say that we are heading to France with a lot of self-confidence and I promise we work hard every day to become a worthy representative for Na'Vi in LoL."
