Solomid IPL6 Qualifiers and Signup
Posted 23 January 2013 - 02:06 AM
It is our pleasure to announce that Solomid will be hosting one of the qualifying events for IPL6. Up to 32 teams will battle it out over the course of three weekends to earn one of two spots we have available.
The first two weeks will be group stages in order to determine the top eight teams in attendance. Those eight teams will move on to the double-elimination final weekend and the chance to win a cut of our $6000 prize pool, a plethora of swag from our sponsors and most importantly, two of the coveted invitations to attend IPL6 on March 28-31 (flight and stay provided by IPL).
The event will run on three consecutive weekends in February: 9th-10th, 16th-17th and 23th-24th. The top two teams will both receive invites. It will be an open tournament, with each team's Ranked 5s rating deciding who gets their chance at the big-time.
There are a couple of restrictions. Firstly, all members of the team must be citizens of the United States of America or Canada and able to travel to Las Vegas for IPL6. Secondly, it would be very beneficial if your manager will be at least 21 years old before IPL6.
Get your team signed up before February 1st and we'll see you on Summoner's Rift.

1. TSM is hosting the tournament, meaning it's going to be on the NA server.
2. I'm assuming IGN is only willing to fly people from NA to Las Vegas since it'll be significantly more expensive to fly someone from out of the country.
3. Coordinating timezones is difficult when someone has like a 5-12 hour time difference.
