The North American League of Legends team vote is now over and the results are in. As such, we are happy to announce that Team SoloMid and Counter Logic Gaming will be joining Fnatic and Origen at Intel Extreme Masters San Jose!
Counter Logic Gaming has always been a team with lot of potential which they used fully in the NA LCS Summer Playoffs, where they earned first place and a spot in the 2015 World Championship. After a great performance on the North American scene, it's time to see if the team will carry their form into an international tournament.
Team SoloMid has always been a dominant team in the Western League of Legends scene. Despite finishing fifth in the NA LCS Summer Split, the team managed to fight their way into the final, where they faced CLG only to lose 0-3. The upcoming Intel Extreme Masters will be TSM's second San Jose tournament, where they will have a chance to redeem themselves after last year's loss to event wonder Unicorns of Love.
We now know four teams who will be attending Intel Extreme Masters San Jose - Fnatic and Origen from Europe and Counter Logic Gaming and Team SoloMid from North America. The lineup is still not complete yet, so be sure to keep an eye out for more news!
