Misfits and Millenium have earned their spots, but will they be able to forge a place for themselves among the Champions of the LCS? Or will Schalke 04, Origen and ROCCAT defend their LCS titles?
The Promotion tournament sets the top two CS teams against the three lowest ranked LCS teams in four Bo5 matchups. Matches will be broadcast on August 4, 5 and 7:
