In the past weeks, the second season of our PLG Nationals League of Legends Tournament Series ran with over 32 teams from around the region, all with one goal in mind: reaching the final four spots in the PLG Pro Tour with League of Legends, the second phase before reaching the ultimate challenge: the PLG Grand Slam. The second season qualifier for the PLG Nationals League of Legends Tournament Series ended last week, presented by Legion and powered by Intel Core i7 Processors, full of surprises, such as the emerging teams from the North African region, such as Black Lotus from Morocco, who reach the semifinals and almost became the first Moroccan teams to qualify in the PLG Pro Tour, if it wasn’t for their 2-0 loss against Nasr eSports Jr. (Nasr eSports Youth division).

From Saudi Arabia, New World Order had one thing in mind ever since their loss at the live qualifier during GamesArabia JED: qualify to the PLG Pro Tour. While they only lost during the grand finals of the live qualifiers, New World Order brought the same kind of performance to this online qualifier, managing to get rid of good contending teams from the region, including [OMN] The Retlentless and [UAE] Frags on Gamers which were a crowd favorite. While their journey ended with a 3-0 result against Nasr eSports Jr., the KSA based team almost made it to the PLG Pro Tour with League of Legends.

With the completion of this qualifier, we have now seven confirmed teams that will participate in the PLG Pro Tour, with the eight spot reserved for the Last Call Online Qualifiers (which you can register to right now). The winner of that last chance qualifier will meet [KSA] Team Hex, [KSA] Free Elo, [EGY] Anubis Gaming, [UAE] Nasr eSports, [EGY] Slice N Dice, [UAE] Team Lebanon (previously named Team Spotnet) and [UAE] Nasr eSports Jr. These will compete in a double elimination bracket later in November, to reach the final four which will then be seeded into the PLG Grand Slam and play for a prize pool of $5,000 courtesy of Legion and Intel ($ 3,000 for first place, $ 1,500 for second place and $500 for third place).
