The groups for the second chapter of the Iron Squid tournament have been announced, find out who Viktor "Mini" Malmberg will have to play to get to the playoffs!
Last month we were glad to announce that our rising talent, Viktor “Mini” Malmberg, had managed to qualify for the second iteration of the Iron Squid tournament, and today we are happy to announce that the groups for the tournament have been revealed.
You could say that the young Swede has been seeded into arguably one of, if not the most difficult group of the tournament as he will have to play the best foreigner within the scene right now, EG.Stephano, who is joined by another top foreigner; Mouz MaNa, who is then followed up by none other than four time GSL champion, LG-IM Mvp.
The groups will be broadcasted twice a week, every Wednesday and Sunday, starting from November 28th and will be played out in the GSL format, meaning that the top two from each group will qualify for the final bracket, and a stake in the $27 000 prize pool. The round of sixteen and quarterfinals will be played online and both the semi-finals and finals will be played at a LAN final in Paris.
Stay tuned to Western Wolves over the coming months to hear about Mini’s progress throught the tournament, and don’t forget to tune in and cheer him on!
