The new pursuit by the War of the Gods team rolled into action last night: War of the Gods: Legends. This was the first round of qualifiers to determine the entrants for a six-week long invitational tourney. 12 spots are filled by past WotG Legends (hence the name), and now two of the remaining four have been decided.
From 140 players, we broke down into the top 8 you are seeing above, with Sooneo and Emperor Kombat emerging as the two victors. Sooneo will be playing bc Biohazard, HZRDS Forever King, and Noble Semiij for his first pool, Kombat's got HZRDS Knicks, DF Grr and Method SylverRye. Pool information can be found over here. If I understand everything correctly, everyone will play everyone else twice in a round robin type tourney, these are just the pools to get things going. Best of Seven's all around, so it will be intense once the slots get filled out.
If you want to catch the archive, the VOD is live over here. If you want to enter (still free, and still open), the final round of qualifiers is taking place this Sunday. Registration is over here. Gonna be the same time as usual, things aren't radically different at this point in time. So whether you are playing or watching, everything is going down on Stream.me at 6PM EST* (registration closes at 5PM that day).
*minor edit, Top 8 is taking place 8PM EST on Wednesday
