On January 12, the first big Counter Strike tournament 2018 will start and bring together the biggest teams in the world. Also German players are represented.
From the 12th to the 28th of January the first big Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Tournament 2018 takes place in Atlanta and Boston. The best teams in the world are fighting for over $ 1,000,000 in prize money. German players are also represented and hope to stir up the tournament.
Sprout and BIG are German players
From the domestic point of view, especially the players of BIG and Sprout move into the field of vision. Both squads contain four German players and one foreign legionnaire. The traditional clan mousesports, which comes from Germany, is also represented, but its CS: GO squad now consists exclusively of international players.
The tournament is divided into three divisions. In the area of the “Minor Champions” are the teams that have become first or second in regional eliminations. The “Challenger” pool includes the top 16 teams from past big events and “Legends” the top 8.
Underdogs against favorites
First, the 16 Minor Champions and Challenger teams compete against each other in Atlanta before the eight winners in Boston meet the Legends teams. Sprout faces Space Soldier in the first game, while BIG does not have to play as a Legends member.
