Day 2 of Intel Extreme Masters Oakland kicks off at 10 AM PST with two best-of-three semi-final matches.
The first semi-final will be between Europe’s Unicorns of Love — who advanced after a commanding victory over INTZ E-Sports in the tournament’s first day — facing off against North America’s Team SoloMid — who are coming in after their first round bye. The Rift Herald recently had a chance to talk to TSM coach Parth Naidu to get a little more information about how the team prepared for the tournament and handled the return of their old AD Carry Jason “Wildturtle” Tran.
The day’s second semi-final will have Korea’s Longzhu gaming — coming off a convincing defeat of Chiefs eSports — taking on Flash Wolves who also had a bye.
The winners of the two semi-final matches will face each other later in the day in the best-of-five match for the Finals.
The tournament will be played on patch 6.21, the final regular season patch of 2016, and will be streamed live on the Intel Extreme Masters website. Check out the full first day schedule below.
