    Gamers8 | Betting Preview

    A new tournament, outside of ESL and BLAST organised events, has emerged in the form of Gamers8. This is much more than just a CS:GO tournament, as competitions in other games have been taking place under the Gamers8 name for the last month. What is most appealing about this tournament is the $1,000,000 prize pool, a figure only seen at the highest level of events. Another interesting aspect of this tournament is the single-elimination format the organisers have chosen to adopt the whole way through - the brackets will seem familiar to those who watch events like the World Cup. This means no second chances – one loss and you’re out.

    BLAST Premier Fall Groups | Tournament Overview

    BLAST Premier Fall Groups returns to kick-start competitive CS:GO now that the player break is over. Every Counter-Strike fan has been eagerly awaiting this tournament, mainly due to the amount of roster updates we’ve seen since the BLAST Premier Spring Final took place in early June. What’s most surprising isn’t just the number of changes, but the changes themselves. NAVI dropped three players, Team Liquid now have a European core, and Team Vitality replaced Peter "dupreeh" Rasmussen after winning the Major.

    CS:GO Spring Season Recap

    The summer player break is here, so we thought we’d review the season to get you prepared for what’s to come when the action returns in July. We’re still unsure as to when the highly anticipated Counter-Strike 2 will be released, or if the upcoming season will be played on Source 2. The one thing we do know is we won’t be getting a second Counter-Strike Major this year!
