The LAN is set to take place from April 27th-28th and is the culmination of the 2018/2019 season which saw collegiate teams from all over the country compete. Following the conclusion of the regular season, 64 teams qualified to the online playoffs, and over the past two months the number of teams still in contention has been slowly whittled down to three.
The three teams traveling to Atlantic City to determine who are best in North America are:
- Robert Morris University (SPERMY, Welshy, Reality, koga, Draggio)
- University of California Santa Cruz (moopey, saiyo, yohann, shike, Demiwow)
- York University (denya, Skelly, tennLs, kXn, Xephix)
Of the three teams present, Robert Morris University is likely the most widely known as they bested University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign during a showmatch at IEM Chicago last year. They were also runner's up in the last season of CSL, coming up short against champions CUNY Baruch.
