At 17:00 CET the IEM Cologne Crossrealm Qualifier starts brought to you by Joe Miller and Jason Kaplan live on ESL TV. Seven participants of IEM Cologne's tournaments have been determined already, six for the Pro Tournament and NiP for the Amateur Tournament, which will see three final additions today. Eight teams from EU West and EU East meet to qualify for the IEM Cologne taking place on November 23rd and 24th in Cologne at the ESL Arena.
Today's tournament arrives right on time after some big and unexpected transfers. Former LCS EU team SK Gaming presented their all-new lineup for 2014 just a few days ago and not just the European scene is eager to see how the new additions perform in the spotlight as well as the team copes with the loss of their prominent midlaner ocelote, who went into hiatus as SK's sub until further notice.
