Watch the WCS Season 2 finals and LCS playoffs live from Gamescom

Gamescom 2013

It’s Gamescom right now, and that means it’s time for eSports. Both the Starcraft WCS Season 2 Finals and League of Legends Championship Series are in full swing over in Cologne, and you’re not going to want to miss them. The WCS Season 2 finals are coming off a surprising sweep from none other than Maru: a sixteen year old Korean wonderboy who stole the show earlier this month in StarLeague. Over at the LCS, we had a five-way tie for second place. The top three teams from the playoffs all secure their spot in the world playoffs.

Earlier in the year, ripples were sent through the Starcraft 2 scene as Maru won the Korean OSL. Not only did he beat two of the greatest Korean players currently in the scene, but he did it at age sixteen.

Today he’s in Group D of the tournament, with MMA, Scarlett and aLive. If he can repeat his performance at the OSL, he should have an easy ride into the quarterfinals and beyond.

Here’s what the rest of the groups look like:

  • Group A: MC, Rain, Jaedong, Welmu
  • Group B: Polt, Grubby, Bomber, First
  • Group C: duckdeok, INnoVation, TaeJa, Naniwa
  • Group D: Maru, MMA, Scarlett, aLive

You can watch the stream in English here or check out this multi-stream and pick your prefered language.

On the other side of the eSports ocean, League of Legends gears up for it’s LCS summer playoffs.

Here are the teams participating in this weeks competition:

  • Gambit Gaming
  • Fnatic
  • SK Gaming
  • Evil Geniuses
  • Team ALTERNATE
  • Lemondogs
  • Ninjas in Pyjamas
  • MeetYourMakers

Fnatic were the team to take the spring playoffs, beating Gambit Gaming who took second, and Evil Geniuses who took third. But the summer season has brought a lot of changes, most notably the dominant Lemondogs team who, along with Fnatic, received a bye thanks to their regular season record.

You can watch it live here.
