Leviathan Gaming TF2 looks to repeat as ESEA Champs
(ESEAnews) - Another day, another epic clash in Dallas.

UPDATE: Classic Mixup have claimed their 2nd ESEA Championship, running out to a perfect 2-0, 2-0, 2-0 victory in their three bo3 matches.

Original Story:

We're live from the legitimately beautiful Park Inn by Radisson (farewell Sterling, you'll forever be in our hearts) for the ESEA Season 12 TF2 Invite LAN Finals. The top four teams from Season 12 have (hopefully) made their way to Dallas yet again to do battle over a $10,080 prize pool, in the biggest event of the North American TF2 Calendar.

This weekend sees longtime rivals Classic Mixup and Leviathan Gaming TF2 come in 1-2 seed wise, and likely favourites to square off once again in the Grand Finals (for the third straight time, I might add). Looking to spoil the party are #3 seed Spacewhales (aka srsly br0), making their second straight LAN appearance, and #4 seed Chess Club, some of whom are making their first ever ESEA LAN appearance.

The action kicks off tomorrow at 10:00am local time, with a well-known collection of casters manning the TF2-dedicated stream, ESEA Orange, including cbear, djc, seanbud, Sigma and Lange. In the meantime, scroll down for links to the team previews put together by djc (ESEA), Sigma & oPlaiD ( and Trell (VanillaTV), along with a smattering of factoids.

    We've come up with a new way this season for the map selection. The league administrators for TF2 will select the first map of the BO3 for each round. Following that, the loser of the 1st map will then pick the 2nd map. If a third map is needed, the loser of the 2nd map will pick the 3rd map. Please note that all eight (8) maps used during the regular season can be selected. A map can't be used twice in the same BO3.

    Lower Round 2 - cp_granary
