The 2017 Mid-Season Invitational has been a ton of fun to watch, to say the least. While Team SoloMid fans are drowning in their own tears, you can say hello to G2 Esports, Team WE, Flash Wolves and SK Telecom T1 as your four teams in the knockout stage.
On Friday, May 19, SK Telecom T1 will square off against Flash Wolves and on Saturday, May 20, Team WE will go head to head against G2 Esports. The winners of both matches will be put up against one another to see who walks away as the champion of the 2017 Mid-Season invitational.
Not only will they be the champion of the 2017 Mid-Season Invitational, they'll also be taking home some money. The prize pool that they'll be taking from keeps on growing as 25% of revenue from each Conqueror Karma Skin and Conqueror Ward will be added to the MSI prize pool. You also have a bit of an incentive to purchase the Conqueror Karma skin as well as the Conqueror Ward. In doing so, you'll unlock a limited time loading screen border so you can show that off to all of your friends!
As it stands, fans have contributed $1,400,000 to the total prize which stands at $1.69M.
As per Riot: "Note: This total is an estimated amount and does not include taxes or fees that winners may need to pay due to local regulations."
So let's dive a little deeper into the skin and ward.
Right now during the 2017 Mid-Season Invitational, SKT is the beneficiary of two of the top performers. As it stands, Peanut is the early favorite for MVP as he has 52 kills and just 17 deaths en route to a 6.1 KDA.
