Riot Games have announced that Stage 3 Masters will be held in Berlin, Germany, as part of their Esports Media Preview Event held May 5th.
The event will feature 16 teams as opposed to the 10 participating in Stage 2 Masters. It will take place from September 9-19, and information on live audiences will be coming down the road.
The location makes sense, as the studio for the top-flight European League of Legends league, the LEC, is also located in Berlin. It seems likely that the event will take place there, though of course nothing concrete has been announced.
As part of the event, Riot also revealed the trophy that will be awarded to the champion at Reykjavik.
Other announcements from media day include two new partnerships, Verizon joining the VCT after already sponsoring LoL and HyperX joining as a brand new partner.
