E3 Expo is set to return this year after 2020’s event was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic with Geoff Keighley’s Summer Game Fest taking its place. Last week, the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) promptly denied all rumors claiming that this year’s E3 could be a paid event, stating that “E3’s 2021 digital show is a free event for all attendees.” and that more details will be shared soon.

However, it is now confirmed that E3 2021 will be held for free this June 12-15 with companies such as Xbox, Nintendo, Capcom, Take-Two, Warner Bros Ubisoft, Koch Media, and Konami backing the event and will showcase their upcoming titles “directly to fans around the world,” Stanley Pierre-Louis, President, and CEO of ESA stated that “We are evolving this year’s E3 into a more inclusive event, but will still look to excite the fans with major reveals and insider opportunities that make this event the indispensable center stage for video games.”

It’s uncertain whether Sony or EA will be a part of the show but there is still time for them and other studios to sign up given how the event is just two months away. 

While E3 2021 will be completely digital, the ESA plans to host next year’s event in person in Los Angeles, California. For more updates, visit their official website here.

2021 LEC Spring MVP, Rookie, and Coaching Staff of the Split Announced

The 2021 LEC Spring Split is officially over and, as always, at the very tail end of the playoffs, a slew of exceptional individuals — including the MVP, Rookie, and Coaching Staff of the Split — have been awarded for their excellence.

2021 LEC Spring Split MVP — A Familiar Face


2021 LEC Spring Rookie of the Split


MAD Lions’ staggeringly talented “rookie” jungler Javier “Elyoya” Prades has received the most votes from his peers, analysts, and media and has been proclaimed as the Rookie of the Split! Needless to say, he’s more than worthy of such a prestigious title!


Throughout the entire regular season, Elyoya has been one of MAD Lions’ most important catalysts and has stood out in all the right ways. With a 4.8 KDA (second-best), 73.7% Kill Participation (first), 29% Kill Share (first), 16.6% Death Share (second-best), and 41% First Blood rate (third-best), it’s impossible not to consider him as a premier jungling behemoth. And, to make matters even more impressive, Elyoya created his own leads — rarely did his teammates push him over the finish line.

He’s first in Gold and Experience Differentials at the ten-minute mark and second in [email protected], which means he was the driving force behind MAD Lions’ success. It all began in the jungle, and the leads Elyoya created — most of which were quite imposing — were always transferred over to the rest of his team.

His allies, of course, played an integral part as well, but Elyoya performed and delivered when it mattered most. He did have a somewhat slow start, but as the split progressed he grew and developed in the most important of ways and quickly solidified his spot at the very top of the region.

Of course, Elyoya has a ton of experience (and a slew of other awards, including LVP MVP) from the “little leagues” but no one could’ve foreseen such an impressive showing — he took very little time to prove his worth and deliver in one of the most competitive regions in the world, and a league known for its incredible junglers.

An spectacular showing through and through. To enter the league, get Rookie of the Split, and become champion in just a couple of months is truly an astonishing achievement.

2021 LEC Spring Coaching Staff of the Split


Last but certainly not least, Rogue’s coaching staff was the recipient of an award that, while somewhat overlooked, is still incredibly important. These individuals worked tirelessly (and quite effectively) with a singular goal in mind: to mold Rogue into a bona fide contender. And, needless to say, they succeeded admirably. Rogue’s entire LEC tenure has been nothing short of awe-inspiring. They went from being a bottom-tier dweller all the way to challenging for the LEC throne. And this wasn’t a one-off thing either: they truly are the next “breed of LEC talent” and watching them evolve and adapt has been a chief delight of the post-franchising LEC era.

Talented players are always a necessity, but talent alone means very little without a coaching staff that can guide and nurture it appropriately. Fortunately for Rogue, their coaching staff has definitely been up to the task and the same goes for the individual players as well.

Unfortunately for the boys in blue, just a single win separated them from becoming the LEC champions; still, the fact that they have failed to close things out in no way diminishes their valiant efforts. Rogue’s overall growth was on full display on so many occasions throughout the split and they should keep their heads high for they’ve already left an indelible mark in LEC history.

Toronto Ultra beats Atlanta FaZe to win CDL Stage 2 Major

Canadian team Toronto Ultra beat expectations by winning the Stage 2 Major of the 2021 Call of Duty League (CDL) season, defeating Atlanta Faze 5-3 in the process. Furthermore, this was the first time in over three years that a roster full of European players won a Call of Duty esports major. Even though they came home with $200 thousand in cash prize and 75 CDL Points, the road was full of obstacles, finishing an epic showdown against Atlanta FaZe.

Toronto Ultra Win Big

At first glance, both contestants were pretty even in the CDL Stage 2 Major Grand Finals before Toronto pulled out ahead. Atlanta even managed to score the first round with a safe 250 to 198 victory on Hardpoint. Still, Ultra did not let them get ahead and came even with a 6-3 win on Search and Destroy.

It was then that something unexpected happened. Over the course of the season, FaZe dominated Toronto Ultra on respawn modes. However, with a close 3-2 score, Toronto managed to clutch it for the first time of the season. That clearly hit Atlanta’s morale but they did not surrender and worked hard to regain the lead with a 250-147 win on Hardpoint and a close 6-5 round on Search & Destroy.

But it was clearly Toronto that had the final word. With an amazing performance from Tobias “CleanX” Jønsson on Control, Ultra stepped up. Then, FaZe showed signs of weakness on both S&D and Hardpoint, which Toronto used to seal its final victory.

CDL Stage 2 Major

It was clearly one of the most amazing underdog runs the Call of Duty esports scene had seen in a long time. No one expected the team to compete at that kind of level. In addition, the Toronto Ultra has been in poor rhythm over the last few months.

February was particularly tough for them with a streak of four losses. Then, in the first Call of Duty League Major, they lost 0-3 to Los Angeles Thieves. Stage 2 did not start well either with two losses against Atlanta FaZe and the thieves. Basically, their entire Stage 2 Major run showed everyone how Toronto built on its previous defeat to create its own path.

Now holding 125 points, Toronto Ultra made its way to the upper half of the Call of Duty League standings and should take the fifth spot over LA Thieves. Its victory at the CDL Stage 2 Major also prevented Atlanta FaZe from taking an even bigger lead with now only 225 points.

Heroic defeat Gambit to win ESL Pro League 13

The ESL Pro League final was a rollercoaster ride where we saw two exceptional teams fight it out with each other for the title and the cash price of $200,000. 

The matchup was a best of 5 and it started off with Heroic winning the first map on Vertigo which was a closely contested matchup with a scoreline of 19-17.

The second map was Vertigo and Gambit made sure that they earned their spot into the finals and replied back by winning 16-3.

The third map went a long way as both the teams wanted to win it and the map went into overtime but with the help of  Casper ‘cadiaN’ Møller they secured the map 28-16.

The series was still not over as Gambit came back on Overpass and fought back to win the map 16-10 to take the finals to the last and final map Mirage.

The final map saw Heroic winning in a heroic manner with Cadian pulling out one of his best career plays and clutching out 1v4 with a knife kill and that too on the match point to put the cherry on top. 

Heroic finally won the series 3-2 and took away $200,00 home and a guaranteed spot at the BLAST Premier Global Final in December. Although Gambit lost the finals Sergey “⁠Ax1Le⁠” Rykhtorov was still named the ESL Pro League Season 13 MVP for his “amazing consistency and impact throughout the event.”

MAD Lions become Europe’s kings from reverse sweeping Rogue in LEC Playoff finals

Avatar

Published

on

League of Legends esports teams MAD Lions have won their first-ever League of Legends European Championship (LEC) title after a reverse sweep against Rogue in a historic Spring Split Playoff finals. After G2 Esports’ loss on Saturday, the finals between Rogue and MAD meant a new king in Europe will emerge. MAD Lions proceeded to secure a 3-2 victory against Rogue to represent Europe at the 2021 Mid-Season Invitational.

LEC Spring Split Playoffs Final

The LEC Playoff finals began with a dominant performance from Rogue in the first two games. From drafts to mechanics, they outclassed MAD Lions, who found no impacts early on. Although the first game started slowly, Rogue soon switched up the pace of the game and forced fights. Their bot lane duo of  Steven “Hans Sama” Liv and Adrian “Trymbi” Trybus performed exceptionally well against their counterparts.

Unlike game one, game two was much closer between both teams. Even though MAD Lions held the better late game scaling composition, Rogue’s early advantage helped them secure victory. Rogue closed out game two after taking the dragon soul and multiple team fight wins.

MAD Lions Make History

MAD Lions needed to play perfect League of Legends esports since they were one game from losing the LEC Spring Split Playoffs. With their backs against the wall, MAD players stepped up in a must-win game three. Irfan “Armut” Tukek on the Wukong dominated top lane and also helped his team secure the win in this game. His Wukong together with Marek “Humanoid” Brazda’s Orianna brought 23 kill participations for both players, carrying the team to a game four.

Furthermore, MAD Lions carried the momentum into game four and played even better here. Armut repeated his excellent performance once again on Wukong. Rookie of the Split, Javier “Elyoya” Prades, was also instrumental to the team’s win with 11 kill participation on his Udyr.

MAD Lions forced the series to a game five and eventually edged out a win in just under 23 minutes. Rogue looked poised to lift the trophy with a 2-0 lead but fell apart. MAD Lions showed the spirit and character to pull off a massive comeback.

A new era in LEC 2021

MAD Lions’ emergence as the 2021 LEC Spring Split champions spells a new era for League of Legends esports in Europe. For the past seven years, FNATIC and G2 Esports have dominated and won every title. This is also the first time in Europe post-season history that neither G2 nor FNATIC made finals.

The finals between Rogue and MAD Lions were a welcome change for the LEC. It also shows the positive impact of talent development in Europe’s lower leagues. Since G2, the defending MSI Champions, failed to qualify, MAD Lions have big shoes to fill as Europe’s top League of Legends esports team.
