We are the ESL Benelux Champions once again
Yesterday, our CS:GO team took the first place and defended their title as the reigning ESL Benelux Champions at the Amsterdam ArenA.
As our team ended up taking the first seed in the group stages, they had to play against the fourth seed, Triple-Play Esports, in the first semifinal of the day. Our players won their semifinal very convincingly as they claimed the first map Mirage with 16-2 and closing out the second map Cache with 16-2 as well. With that, we progressed to the grand finals.
Because Venko Gaming won against Asterion in the second semifinal, the grand finals were bound to be tense. The first map was Train, which our Lions won with a close score of 16 to 13. After that, it was time for Cobblestone. Venko Gaming played this map very strong, which made us lose our second game with 9-16. Our players managed to regain control of the series though, as they changed the score of the previous match around to 16-9 on the last map, Dust2.
With the 2-1 win against Venko Gaming, our team can crown themselves as the ESL Benelux Champions once again.
