Welcome back to SFU eSports “What to Watch” a weekly article about some of the matches and events coming this weekend that we are most excited about.
Counter Logic Gaming vs. FlyQuest
Saturday, March 10th, 3:00 PM
As the LCS split draws to a close the race for the playoffs heightens to new extremes. The game we are picking as our much watch is for this week is between two teams fighting for the last few spots in the playoffs. Both CLG and FQ have had relatively disappointing splits but have won a few clutch games to keep them in the running for playoffs. With that being said, If you want to see two teams fighting for the chance to compete for the NA LCS Championship, look no further.
Giants Gaming vs. FC Schalke 04
Friday, March 9th, 10:00 AM
On the other side of the pond, a similar story is told. There are four teams currently sitting at the bottom of the standings all within 1 game from each, and more importantly a playoff spot. Two of those teams, Giants Gaming and Schalke, will be facing off in the EU LCS’ first game of Week 8. Watch as Schalke tries to secure the Giants playoff spot from under them a European battle for playoff birth.
New York Excelsior vs. Philadelphia Fusion
Friday, March 9th, 6:00 PM
In Stage 1 the NYE ran away with the Atlantic Division taking first place single handedly, but so far Stage 2 is a little more crowded at the top. In the current standings both teams sit at three wins and one loss. This game is going to be tempo setter for the Atlantic Division, will NYE pull ahead in similar fashion to Stage 1? Or will it be time for the Fusion to shine?
FaZe Clan vs. mousesports
Tuesday, March 13th, 9:00 AM
Fresh off an unexcpected 2nd place finish, FaZe Clan will be coming out with a bang in their first match back in the EU Pro League, but it won’t be easy. They face up against mousesports, a team right above them in the standings. mousesports is currently in fourth place after securing 4 wins in 6 games, as opposed to their competitors who have secured 4 wins in 8. This match will be the first of week 3 in the ESL Pro League and certainly not one to miss.
