IEM Shanghai: Survival Guide

The next WCS event approaches as players from around the world flock to Shanghai to prepare for battle at China Joy! Many of the world's strongest players, regardless of region, will be attending the event which should lead to an action-packed weekend of a caliber we rarely get to see.

The 16 competitors will begin in a group stage on Thursday, July 27 and wage war for two days. On the third day, the remaining players move on the single-elimination Best of 5 Playoffs, amd the top two players conclude the event in a Best of 7 series for the Finals! We're extremely excited for the quality of play expected for this event, and hope you are too!
