About[edit]

The GIGABYTE ESPORTS LAN was a competitive gaming event that took place in Southern California a week after MLG's 2012 Spring Championship.

Twenty-four invited players competed for a share of an $11,000 in a StarCraft II tournament prize pool. In addition, eight League of Legends teams competed for a share of a $10,000 prize pool.
