IEM Global Challenge Katowice is the fourth tournament in the IEM Season VII circuit hosted and organized by ESL. The event took place at the Spodek Arena in Katowice, Poland - which would later become the site of the IEM World Championship beginning in 2014. Eight qualified teams competed in a group stage and a single elimination bracket for a $ 50,000 prizepool and a direct seed into the IEM World Championship. In addition to League of Legends, the event was also host to a StarCraft II tournament, with the two games sharing a $ 82,000 prizepool. The tournament was hosted by ReDeYe and the games were casted by Joe Miller, Deman, ButButButILY, Jatt, Panky and CitizenWayne.[1].

Besides currently being the last international event won by a European team (Gambit Gaming, formerly Moscow 5) with Korean teams present, the event is also known for xPeke's legendary  Kassadin backdoor for Fnatic to beat SK Gaming.

Format

  • Eight teams qualify
  • Top team qualifies for IEM World Championship
  • Eight teams divided into two groups of four
  • Group stage is round robin, best of one matches, top two advance to bracket stage
    • In case of a tie, group placement will be determined by a time coefficient
    • Time Coefficient is calculated by adding the match times of all lost maps and subtracting the match times of all won maps
  • Bracket stage is single elimination, all matches are best of three
