We saw some excellent games played this past weekend as well as a great overall turnout in both the teams and viewership department. In North America, we saw an average of at least 4k concurrent viewers and a record total of 24 teams signed up. In Europe, there was an average of ~5.5k concurrent viewers - capping out again over 7k and a total of 20 teams.

Thanks again for everyone who participated and showed up. We hope to see you all again next week. And remember, there are still 6 more weeks to earn points, which means those 4 spots per region that get invited to Atlanta Georgia are still anyone's! Get it while you still can! 'Till next time!
