The Teams, Game, and More
Renowned professional teams Cloud 9, Complexity, Echo Fox, Prospects, Selfless, Team Kaliber, Team SoloMid, and WinterFox made up the competition line-up and they squared off against each other in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Fans had the opportunity to get autographs from Cloud9 and Selfless on day one and Counter Logic Gaming Red on day two.
After fierce competition, Cloud9 managed to prevail over teams Prospects, Selfless, and ultimately SoloMid. Their win was by no means predictable as the team struggled to find their footing amid inaccurate shooting and disorganized utility. At the bitter end, Cloud9 came out on top with a 2-0 victory over Team SoloMid, as they had secured over Team Prospects the day before, and will now advance to the finals.
