The jD Masters is a 1500 USD tournament held last 15-16 April. This was the Master’s eleventh installment, but its just the first one this year. All others were held last year. It followed a winner-takes-all single-elimination format, and the teams joining were directly invited by the organizers.

The invited teams this time were:

  • Europe Fnatic.EU
  •  Evil Geniuses
  •  Na’Vi
  •  Team Liquid
  • de Mousesports
  • Europe Qpad Red Pandas
  • Europe Kaipi
  • ru RoX.KiS

 

Na`Vi arguably had the easier route into the Championship with upsets being pulled off by the other teams. RoX.KiS was able to eliminate Fnatic, while Kaipi was able to eliminate Team Liquid. One could say that both Fnatic and Liquid were strong contenders coming into this tournament.
