Featured Match: Unicorns of Love vs Kongdoo Monster

The IEM World Championship is kicking off in Katowice, Poland this week and there’s $70,000 waiting for whoever can make it to the finish line.

Today we’ve got our eye on the Koreans at Kongdoo as they take on the German Unicorns for the first of the Group B matches, and we’re only upset that this is a best-of-1 game because it means we’ll only get to see one match between these two closely-matched teams!

The Unicorns come into the World Championship as the recent first-place winners of IEM XI Oakland late last year, taking the Flash Wolves 3:2 in an incredible set to score $50,000.

Kongdoo were never meant to be here after they went down 3:1 in the Gyeonggi finals against Samsung Galaxy, but with Galaxy pulling out of Katowice at the last minute, they’ve been given a fresh chance to prove themselves and they won’t be letting it slip past.

We think that Kongdoo might just edge this one out, but there’s no denying that it’s going to be insanely close. Make sure to get your bets in early!
