It's the end of the month, which means... wait, what does it mean, other than it's almost February? Regardless of what time of the month it is, we've got some major things going on in a number of big eSports. We also have PAX South which, in addition to a number of panels and musical acts, will feature the conclusion to two major tournaments.

PAX South will be at San Antonio, Texas once again this year, bringing with it a deluge of scheduled events, including music, panels, and, of course, the Omegathon. (Stream / Schedule)

PAX South is also having its own Hearthstone major tournament, bringing a slew of notable players together to fight for a $10,000 prize pool. Matches begin at 10am both Saturday and Sunday. (Stream)

You can also hop on for some quick PAX Overwatch action, as the NGE Winter Premiere will see Immortals and Ghost Gaming fight in the finals for first place's $40,000 prize. Matches begin at noon central today. (Stream)

Frosty Faustings IX is the month's final major fighting game tournament, and will bring Street Fighter V, Super Smash Bros., Killer Instinct, and several more to Chicago. Between six streams and almost two dozen tournaments (including a mystery game tournament), you should have some fighting game action to keep you busy all weekend. (Streams and Schedule)

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive's ELEAGUE major concludes this weekend, pitting the final five teams in the running in a single-elimination bracket and offering a first-place prize of $500,000. The tournament will be broadcast live on TBS at 11am central as well as on Twitch. (Stream / Schedule)

Call of Duty is heading to London this weekend for the CWL London tournament, which will bring some of the highest-caliber Infinite Warfare competition yet. (Stream / Schedule)

The League of Legends LCS Spring Split continues this week and will see eight teams continue on in league play for a shot at the Mid-Season Invitational. (Europe Stream / Europe Schedule / North America Stream / North America Schedule)
