BUCHAREST GAMING WEEK INVITATIONAL powered by ESL QUALIFIER #1

Returning back to where it all started, to the beautiful city of Bucharest, the longest running multi-gaming tournament in the region, the ESL Southeast Europe Championship, is coming back for yet another season, but this time holding a surprise up its sleeve.

In collaboration with Bucharest Gaming Week, ESL SEC is bringing its first ever CS:GO Invitational! With more than 50,000€ up for grabs and with teams from all over Europe competing for the lion’s share of the prize pool, the competition is going to be as fierce as it will ever get!

ALMOST 100

Last Saturday, 99 teams signed up seeking glory, recognition and one of the three playoff spots. The battles between the 85 checked in teams gave us clutch moments, dominating performances and close victories.

Representing France, Sweden, Poland, Germany, Latvia, Ukraine, and Spain, 16 CS:GO teams advanced to the Round of 16, gazing at the finish line.

THE SPANISH INVASION

Teams were putting up a show, having great performances all across the board. However, the “Spanish Brigade” seemed too strong on the battlefield for the rest. Movistar Riders and Mad Lions E.C., overcoming any German (xaxa123), Swedish (Red Reserve, wizards), Ukrainian (Windigo AT) and Polish (MIKSTURA) resistance, found themselves to the Final, occupying two out of the three playoff spots.

One more precious spot was left and two teams loaded into the battlefield to seize their opportunity. MIKSTURA, from Poland, and Red Reserve, from Sweden, fought, yesterday (Monday 13/11), for that most wanted last playoff spot. Red Reserve came up victorious 2-0, occuping that third spot for the playoffs, after a close second map. Make sure to follow us on facebook for more news!
