In late December, the esports year will be being closed by Intel Extreme Masters. Coming to Cologne from the 18th to 21st of December, Intel Extreme Masters wants you to invite two more League of Legends teams. While Fnatic are already invited, it’s up to you to help your favorites get to Cologne, so cast your votes for both the NA and EU regions and make sure they succeed!
The European candidates
- SK Gaming
- Copenhagen Wolves
- Supa Hot Crew
- Gambit Gaming
Joining Fnatic to represent the European region are these five EU LCS teams. SK Gaming, after having come second in the San Jose poll and losing out to Unicorns of Love, now have the chance to seize a spot to play in their home city. However, once again there are also others who want that spot: Supa Hot Crew and Copenhagen Wolves are being joined by ROCCAT and Gambit this time. SK is once again the biggest fish in the pond, but as we saw with the results of the San Jose poll, that doesn’t mean anything. It’s all up to you!

The American candidates
- Evil Geniuses
- Counter Logic Gaming
- Team Dignitas
- Team 8
With Team SoloMid and Cloud 9 out as they are already playing in San Jose, the pressure on these teams is on the rise. Three of them actually made it to the Summer Split Playoffs, with Curse having come out on top by placing fourth. However, now it’s all back to square one and the teams are preparing for the next season. With some big rumors circulating the NA scene, there are potential new stars in attendance if the right team makes it to Cologne. Who will get the chance to present their lineup for 2015 onstage in Cologne? You’re the ones who’ll decide!
The choice is yours!
In the San Jose poll, we already saw that it’s not always the obvious favorite who takes the win. If you want to see your favorite team or players be a part of the show at Intel Extreme Masters Cologne, make sure to cast your vote and spread the word – it could be you who changes the outcome!
If it’s TSM, C9, Alliance and Unicorns of Love who you really want to see in action, make sure to grab a ticket to Intel Extreme Masters San Jose to watch them take the stage at the SAP Arena, home of the San Jose Sharks. Tickets are now on open sale, so make sure to hurry before the best spots are gone!
