IEM Winter is starting on the 2nd of December and we at Fanteam.com are celebrating with a 7.000€ Guarantee tournament.
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?
After dominating in PGL & BLAST, Na’Vi are once again the big favourites here. S1mple is undeniably in great form and the CS:GO GOAT.
If anyone can stop them, then it has to be the Frenchman Vitality with their superstar ZywOo looking to take revenge for their recent finals loss at BLAST.
The best piece of advice is to avoid players from opposing teams. 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
