The European Evolve Proving Grounds tournament semifinal is going down this Sunday!

The Evolve Proving Grounds tournament is a unique competition that gives amateur players a chance to participate in the esports scene and fight for a share of an incredible US$100,000 prize pool.

The tournament kicked off with a series of online qualifiers which determined which four teams would head over to the ESL studios in Cologne. Those teams will now battle it out for a slot in the grand final in Los Angeles, where they will strut their stuff in front of a live audience for the title.

A total of four online qualifiers took place, during which the participants earned points respective to their earned spot. The use of such a system means that even if a team lost one of the qualifiers they could still earn a ticket to Cologne by trying out in one of the other qualifiers.

The four European teams who will be facing each other in the LAN semifinals are:

  • Dark Elite

  • Omega Pack


  • The Lonely Bastards

The prizes for the semifinal, meanwhile, are broken down as follows:

  • First and second place: US$2,500 and an invitation to the grand final in Los Angeles, USA (with all travel expenses paid)

  • Third place: US$1,500

  • Fourth place: US$1,000

The Proving Grounds tournament is the biggest Evolve has seen yet, with all of the games to be livestreamed so that everyone can watch the top monster-on-hunters action. The matches will be brought to you by Leigh “Deman” Smith and DB Sinclair.

Tune in here on Sunday the 24th of May at 13:00 CEST!
