EDC Season 4 Schedule + Broadcast
The event schedule has not yet been released. However, Eden Esports have revealed that the event will kick off on the 8th of June and continue to play till the 27th. As usual, the entire tournament will be streamed on the official Eden Esports Twitch Channel here. As a bonus for non-English speakers, the tournament will be broadcasted in Russian, Polish, German, Swedish, Romanian, Hungarian, and Dutch.
When it comes to predictions, we’d have to set our eyes on 4 key teams: Double Poney, Entropiq, Young Ninjas and HYENAS. Double Poney is a formation of French talents who certainly have what it takes to win. Entropiq (Former Winstrike) is also a solid team and could certainly do some damage at Group B. The Young Ninjas have had great results recently, placing 3rd at BLAST Rising 2021 and 5th-8th in LOOT.BET Season 9. And lastly, we have HYENAS, the newest Danish roster to be formed. The team has only been together for a couple of weeks but has gained some experience in Tier 1 and 2 events.
This event is going to be a blast to watch, so be sure to tune in. Remember to come back to Esports Malta for our very own recap after the event is concluded!
