Our Counter-Strike team is in New York for the “Big Apple”‘s ESL One event, one of the biggest Counter-Strike competitions of the second half of the year. Eight teams, hailing from Europe and the Americas, will be facing off at the Barclays Cente in this exciting tournament, with $250,000 up for grabs.
The competition will begin with a Swiss stage, in which teams are paired with opponents who have the exact same record. After five rounds, the top four teams advance to the single-elimination, best-of-three playoffs.
