Introduction

Welcome back to ELEAGUE! Back for its 3rd season, ELEAGUE features its top performers from ELEAGUE Season 2 to clash for $1,000,000 USD. Hosted in the Turner G-FUEL ELEAGUE Arena, teams will be battling it out in 4 separate group stages. The reward is 1 of the 8 spots in the playoffs. Some groups are stacked with top tier teams like SK Gaming, fnatic, FaZe, G2 Esports, and more top tier teams. Teams such as the Cloud9 were expected to disappoint, but these teams surprised and snuck their way to the playoffs. Now, we reach the playoffs to determine the winner of ELEAGUE’s CS:GO Premier tournament.

Format

Opening group stage matches & winner match: best of 1

Elimination match and group stage decider: best of 3

2 teams eliminated and 2 teams advance.

Astralis

Astralis have been an oddball within the past months. For the first time in a long time, they were eliminated in the group stages of an international event. Losing to Liquid in a best of 3, this marked the first time since ESL New York 2016. In an interview with device, it is said that Astralis are still trying to find their groove. As the saying goes, you can’t win a game solely on brains; the current CS:GO meta is very heavy on skilled aimers.

Astralis’ last 3 events (including the PGL Krakow Major) have been deflating, but it does not refute the fact they’re a top 3 team. Having the best of Denmark, there is a guarantee that Astralis can bounce back from this. But, with a dominating look and topping group D at ELEAGUE, Astralis look to shine and claim another championship at ELEAGUE.

fnatic

fnatic have looked like a structured team again. Recently beating their about-to-be opponents (Astralis) 2-0 in the ESL Pro League a few days ago, fnatic has seen their players rising to their prime levels slowly.

Composed of Golden, Lekr0, JW, flusha, and KRiMZ, fnatic have had their ups and lows in recent LAN and online tournaments. But, as of recent, success has been heading their way. That includes qualifying for the ELEAGUE playoffs after beating Immortals by the skin of their teeth.

Historically, throughout the various lineups fnatic have fielded, they have a better head-to-head record versus Astralis. But, it is safe to say that this current lineup is more inferior to Astralis’ level as of current. But, having beat the Danes online recently, fnatic could be looking to turn the tables on LAN. Considering that they are on par in terms of map pools, fnatic could upset.
