We are proud to present our biggest prize pool to date for a CS:GO event – a €10,000 guaranteed fantasy tournament for the quarter-final stage of the PGL Major in Stockholm.
This is the first Major after a break caused by the Covid pandemic. The event in Stockholm will see 24 teams compete for a huge purse of $2 million!
WHAT IS CS:GO?
CS:GO stands for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and is a multiplayer first person shooter video game and has become one of the most popular esports disciplines with regular competitions of teams competing for hundreds of thousands of dollars.
The Majors are the dream of any pro esports player. The prize pools are much bigger than the other events and carry the most rating points and prestige. Teams can make it to the Majors either through invitation or through the minors.
WHO ARE THE FAVOURITES?
Natus Vincere (Na’Vi) is once again unstoppable, with s1mple making a clear display that he’s the best in the world. Gambit & G2 also had a very good showing at the Legends stage and could be contenders for the record-breaking 1st place trophy of $1 million.
The best piece of advice is to avoid players from the same team. The aim is to pick players from a team that will win 2-0. Sticking with two different teams is often a good strategy. This could be 3 + 2 from each side or 4 +1
