Lots of Gold, Kills and Goals met, during the latest phase of the LPL Spring Playoffs!
The year’s first Playoffs event of the Chinese LoL scene is heating up, and both Top Esports and FunPlus Phoenix are making the best out of the brief tournament.
The Sinese Spring Playoffs started out only a few days ago (April 1st, to be more precise), and will go on until the 18th, with the winning team taking a whopping 2 million Yuan.
Actually, not as whopping‘, since this amount equates to roughly 300k USDollars, but that’s still pretty high in terms of overall Asian pay rate standards. Oh, and there’s also the tiny fact that the winner gets an automatic invite to the Mid-season Invitational. – Not bad, not bad at all!
