This tournament offers the chance to build on the positive developments of the past few weeks and expand our confidence on the road back to the top. Our men replace Natus Vincere who retreated from the competition. As soon as they step into Moscow’s Adrenaline Stadium, they are going to aim for the lion’s share of the $100,000 prize pool. Virtus.pro , Gambit Gaming and AVANGAR will have the same mindset and are going to try to prevent us from fulfilling that goal.
The competition will instantly start with the semi-finals due to the small participating field and our guys will be playing against Gambit Gaming on Thursday at 17:00 CEST. If we come out on top there, we would face the winner of the previous semi-final between Virtus.pro and AVANGAR at 15:00 CEST on the following day.
Vincent “Zescht” Talmon-Gros will present the spectacle on EPICENTER's English Twitch channel that you can find above in this article.
The complete prize distribution will be split according to the seats in which the competitors finish in:
1st place - 65,000$
2nd place - 25,000$
3rd-4th place - 5000$

Our CS:GO squad has a busy schedule throughout this summer and has spent a lot of time in airplanes over the course of May. All the tournaments and the travel strain are paying off. The structural changes within the newly formed roster continue to come to fruition and the latest results should boost our confidence.
This trophy marks the first time that our CS:GO division has been able to hoist a title in 2018 and our players are hungry to get some more.
Daniel combines his passions for esports, writing and sports and uses his brilliant eye for talent to achieve greatness with our players.
